After a series of storms in the west over
the past several days, cold air will finally start to drop southward into the
western half of the country over the weekend. It will start to feel like
December in at least part of the country! Sunday’s high temperatures will only
be in the upper 20’s or low 30’s in the northern plains—OMA, DSM, and MSP—while
relatively mild conditions persist in the Southeast and Northeast. With the
colder weather, accumulating snow will be possible late in the weekend in SLC,
DEN, and MSP.
Here are this weekend's weather highlights:
- Rain will spread from the upper Plains Thursday and into the Midwest and Great Lakes Friday. Some early morning snow may mix in Friday morning in MKE, PIT, and BUF.
- Rain showers will move into metro NYC and New England Friday afternoon and evening. Showers will continue through the weekend, with likely periodic showers Saturday and Sunday.
- Periods of snow showers are expected in GEG Thursday and Friday. Light accumulations may occur, due to colder temperatures on the way for the weekend.
- Snow showers are likely Saturday in BOI and SLC, and will spread into DEN and MSP overnight into early Sunday. Light snow accumulations are likely.
- Persistent late night/early morning low ceilings and fog are once again likely in coastal southern California through the weekend.
- Expect rain showers both Saturday and Sunday in the Southeast.
