The weather pattern for the next several days will be characterized by strong troughs in both the West and the East. In between, a strong "blocking" ridge of high pressure will be in place over the Rockies.
A Pacific cold front associated with a deep trough of low pressure will bring much needed precipitation this weekend to the western U.S. including drought-stricken California. The northern and central Rockies will also see plentiful moisture with this storm system. Warming and drying weather will develop for the early part of next week, but precipitation is expected to return to the Western U.S. and northern Rockies by mid-week.
In the eastern half of the U.S. a major trough of low pressure will dig southward this weekend with cold Canadian air. Numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected, along with brisk winds and snow in the Appalachian Mountains. Unseasonably cold and breezy weather will linger much of next week in the eastern and southern U.S. with snowfall in New England.
By the middle of next week, deep tropical moisture will stream into the southern and central Plains to interface with a cold front for heavy rainfall with thunderstorm activity.
The Desert Southwest will see warm and dry weather through the period.
