|It will be a warmer start to the new week, as temperatures ranging from 10-to-20 degrees above normal push across the U.S. Meanwhile, a few storm systems will keep residents reaching for their umbrellas throughout the day.|
The low pressure system that brought a messy trifecta of weather across the Northern Tier over the weekend will team up with high pressure diving into the Upper Midwest to cause trouble for both the northern and the southern Tiers Monday.
Across the Northern Tier, flurries will continue to dust the Northeast and central Appalachians, while daytime temperatures allow snow to transition over to light rain along the Northeast coast. A wintry mix of snow, sleet, rain, and freezing rain will be possible throughout Monday along the northern portions of the Great Lakes as temperatures struggle to reach above freezing. Meanwhile, light rain will fall within the warmer temperatures from Minnesota to the northern Ohio Valley.
Further south, showers and afternoon thunderstorms will be scattered across the Southern U.S., from the southern and central Rockies to the Southeast coast.
Elsewhere, a Pacific storm system will finally move into the Northwest late Monday, spreading welcomed rain across the Pacific Northwest and Northern California. Mountain snow will be confined to the highest elevations of the northern Cascades.
The rest of the U.S. can expect to receive plenty of spring sunshine and mild temperatures, along with a brisk spring breeze across the Great Plains.
Cool 30s and 40s will be hold tight to the Great Lakes, Northeast, and the highest elevations of the Mountain West, while warm early-spring 50s, 60s, and 70s sweep the rest of the U.S. Highs will range from the 80s to the upper 90s Monday across central and southern California, the Desert Southwest, the Rio Grande Valley and the central Gulf Coast.
