A ridge of high pressure will dominate the weather pattern in the western U.S. for the next several days with warm and dry conditions. East of the Rockies, a deep trough of low pressure will carve out an Arctic surge of cold air with precipitation from the northern Rockies through the central Plains. A series of strong cold fronts will reinforce the trough with several episodes of strong winds, including a cold front that will stall out along the eastern Plains of the Rocky Mountains by the middle of next week. Toward the end of next week precipitation is possible for the Pacific Northwest. The southern Plains and southeast U.S. may also see rain by week's end as an upper level disturbance merges with a tropical feed of moisture.
