Weather Outlook

High pressure along the West Coast will continue to allow for overall warm and dry conditions under northwesterly flow. Areas of light rain and snow, however, will be possible along the Rocky Mountain Front in Montana as a back door cold front drops south from Central Canada.

Looking east, a cold front will develop just east of the Mississippi River Valley and will pull moisture up from the Gulf of Mexico into New England along the Appalachian crest.

The coastal states of the Southeast will remain warm and dry except for a few afternoon thunderstorms that may develop across southern Florida.
