Cool weather  will persist through week’s end in the West Coast States, but temperatures will rebound to above-normal levels by early next week. Meanwhile, a warm weather pattern across the Plains and much of the Midwest will be replaced by slightly cooler conditions.
During the next 5 days, precipitation totals  could reach 1 to 2 inches in the southern Atlantic States and from the Pacific Northwest to the northern Plains. In contrast, mostly dry weather will prevail in the Southwest.
Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook  calls for below-normal temperatures across the nation’s northern tier from North Dakota to Maine, while warmer-than-normal weather will return to California, the Great Basin, and the Desert Southwest. Meanwhile, near- to somewhat above-normal precipitation can be expected nationwide.
