Temperatures well-above normal on Friday in the eastern U.S. will swing back to seasonal readings through this weekend as a cold front makes its' way toward the Atlantic Coast. Rain and thunderstorms are expected in the southeast and Appalachian mountains with another round of precipitation in the east late next week. Meanwhile, an active weather pattern will continue in the West as well, with a series of upper level disturbances bringing periods of rainfall and mountain snow to the Pacific Northwest, northern California, and Great Basin before moving east over the Rockies. Further south, it will remain dry across the southwest quarter of the Nation with offshore winds along the California coast this weekend and again the middle of next week.
