|Frigid air and heavy snow continue to plague the western half of the U.S. Tuesday, while a few other spots in the U.S. enjoy summerlike warmth.|
A developing storm system in the Southern Plains will reach the Upper Midwest by Tuesday. This storm will produce heavy snow over the Central and Northern Plains and into the Upper Mississippi Valley. Snow accumulations of 6-to-12 inches will fall in these areas with higher amounts up to 15 inches are possible for southwest Minnesota.
Ahead of this storm, heavy rain will continue to develop along a warm front from the Lower Mississippi Valley, across the Tennessee and lower Ohio valleys, and into the Mid-Atlantic on Tuesday. There is a slight risk for flash flooding across the Southern Appalachians on Tuesday. As a set of fronts push into the East Coast late Tuesday, rain will develop across the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Northeast.
Meanwhile, a series of Pacific storm systems will move onshore. This will allow Monday's rain and higher-elevation snow showers across the Pacific Northwest to spread to the upper Great Basin and Northern Rockies by Tuesday. Light to moderate snow accumulations will fall in the Washington Cascades.
High temperatures will stay below freezing from the interior portions of the Pacific Northwest through the western sections of the Dakotas. Highs in the 30s can be expected from the northern sections of the Desert Southwest, the Central and Northern Plains, the Northern Mississippi Valley, the Upper Great Lakes, and interior New England.
Milder temperature readings in the 50s will be found in the afternoon in southern New England, the Mid-Atlantic, the Southern Plains, the Ohio Valley, the Pacific Northwest, and interior California. Expect temperatures to reach into twhe 60s in the Carolinas and Coastal California, while the Southeast sees temperatures maxing out in the 70s. Floridians will enjoy summertime 80s in the afternoon.
