Weather Outlook

More valley rain and mountain snow is expected across the northwestern quarter of the country Friday as another weakening cold front moves east along the Canadian Border.

To the south, across the Southwest, warm and dry conditions Friday will give way to a cooler and breezy southwesterly flow over the weekend.

In the Southeast a strong, wet system will move northeast into the Mid-Atlantic region by Sunday spreading moderate to heavy rainfall.

Windy conditions are expected across the northern Great Plains Saturday followed by a warm up that will allow for unseasonably warm conditions to develop as far north as the Dakotas.

Cooler and windy conditions will return by Mid-week as an Alberta Clipper moves southeast from Canada toward the Great Lakes. While this is occurring, high pressure will redevelop over the west producing warm and dry conditions in the mountains and strong inversions in the lower elevations.
