|The week will look to wrap up with another zap of wintry weather Sunday, which could cause disruptions to plans from the Upper Midwest to the Mid-Atlantic. Meanwhile, the rest of the country will receive plenty of sunshine and unseasonably warmer temperatures. |
The Alberta Clipper system that made its way from the northern Plains to the Mid-Mississippi Valley late Saturday will continue its trek towards the Mid-Atlantic Sunday. Snow will band across the northeast of the U.S., dusting 1-to-4 inches from the Upper Mississippi Valley to the Upper Mid-Atlantic by early Monday morning, while a cold rain pours further south, from the Mid-Mississippi Valley to the North Carolina Outer Banks.
The clipper will bring a reinforcing shot of colder air, along with the threat for snow, to Maryland and northern Virginia, with a wintry mix of rain and sleet possible west of the Carolina Sandhills.
Moving west, a few spotty showers of rain and snow will be possible early Sunday across the northern and central Rockies, before giving way to afternoon sunshine. Otherwise, the western half of the U.S. should stay dry.
Looking at temperatures, bitterly cold highs in the 10s and 20s will be confined to the northern tier from northern Minnesota to the Interior Northeast. Temperatures in the 30s and 40s will be found across the northeast from the Upper Mississippi Valley to the Mid-Atlantic, as well as cover the central Rockies. Mild 50s and 60s will sweep across the rest of the country, with temperatures reaching into the 70s and 80s across the Pacific Northwest, California, Desert Southwest, Southern Texas, and Southern Florida.
