Weather Outlook

An overall flat westerly flow will be in place across most of the country as the low pressure area over the Mid-Atlantic moves off shore during the morning hours.

Temperatures nationwide will be generally above average except across the northern Great Plains where colder air will filter southward from central Canada.

Some snow will be possible along the leading edge of the system across northern Idaho, Montana, and the Dakotas. Amounts should be generally moderate or less.

Winds across California should generally be light though continued low humidities and a lack of precipitation will keep fuels critically dry.

In Alaska, warmer than average conditions are expected across the Interior as a strong high pressure ridge extends north from Sitka to Wainwright on the northern coast. Some snow is possible along the west coast from Nome south to Kongiganak.
