An active weather pattern for the Midwest
Stormy weather prevails across the northern two-thirds of the western U.S. into next week. During the next 5 days, additional precipitation totals could reach 5 to 10 inches in the Pacific Northwest, 2 to 5 inches in the Sierra Nevada, and 1 to 3 inches in the northern Rockies. In contrast, little or no precipitation will fall during the next 5-days across the Plains, the Southwest and Florida.
Across the eastern one-third of the nation, a pair of storms could result in as much as 1 to 2 inches of moisture, with widespread frozen precipitation expected from the Midwestern and Mid-Atlantic States into the Northeast.
Early next week, mild weather will prevail across the central and eastern U.S., while colder conditions will engulf the West.
