|The Northwest won`t be able to shake out of its stormy pattern to round out the weekend. The only other trouble spot will be the Northeast. Otherwise, the weather won`t feel anything like late-October across the nation`s midsection.|
A slug of Pacific moisture will drive showers and mountain snow into the Northwest Sunday. Seattle and Portland, Ore., will need umbrellas to stay dry. Snow in the Cascades and northern Rockies won`t amount to much; a few places may see an inch or so of slushy accumulation.
On the heels of a cold front blasting through eastern Canada, northern New England will get a fresh blast of fall air. A few sprinkles and even flurries will fly across northern Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine where temperatures will stay in the 30s and 40s. Despite the sunshine, breezy winds will make highs in the 50s and 60s in the northern Mid-Atlantic feel a touch colder.
The Northwest will also feel autumn`s touch with temperatures in the 30s and 40s in the Cascades and northern Rockies while the valleys warm into the 50s and 60s.
The calendar will flip back to mid-summer once again in the central and southern Plains. Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Okla., and Garden City, Kan., will flirt with the 90-degree mark Sunday. A breezy southerly wind will boost highs into the 60s and 70s into the northern Plains and Upper Midwest as well. Only the Great Lakes and Minnesota Arrowhead will stay in the cooler 50s and 60s to conclude the weekend.
California will dry out from Saturday`s rain while sunshine is on the weather menu for the Southern Tier as well. Highs will warm into the 70s and 80s, with a few 90s in Texas.
