UPDATED By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Tim Barnes
|The month of March begins Sunday with ice, snow, and thunderstorms driving last minute weekend diversions to a halt across the Southern and Eastern U.S. |
Snow from Saturday will narrow down into a tighter band from the central Great Basin to the Northeast Sunday. Heaviest accumulations will likely be seen across the San Juan Mountains of Colorado, the Grand Canyon, as well as U.S. locations as far east as eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania.
A threat for a wintry mix of snow, sleet, rain, and freezing rain will be likely from the High Plains of New Mexico and Colorado to the Mid-Atlantic and Southern New England through Sunday into early Monday.
Farther south, rain will pelt southern and central California, the Southwest, while also pattering from eastern Texas to the coastal Southeast. A chance for thunderstorms will be possible Sunday across the South, from eastern Texas to northwestern Louisiana and southern Arkansas, as well as along the central and southern coast of California and central and southern Florida.
Along the Pacific Northwest, moisture will move back in across the Northwest Sunday, sprinkling light rain along the Coasts of Washington and Oregon overnight.
Looking at temperature for Sunday, moderating weather will end the week for much of the U.S. Cold upper teens and 20s will be confined to the higher elevations of the northern and central Rockies, while winding across the Northern Tier from North Dakota to New England. Cool 30s and 40s will stream from the Great Basin to the Mid-Atlantic. Milder 50s and 60s will roll down the West Coast, while filtering across the South from the central Texas to the Southeast. Warm highs in the 70s and lower 80s will finish the week for the Florida Peninsula, the Desert Southwest and southwestern Texas.
