National Weather Summary for Jan. 9, 2010

While the worst of this week's Arctic air outbreak has passed for most, significant cold air remained in place in the East and brought freezing and well below average temperatures. The front that
brought significant snow to the East earlier in the week continued
to move off the eastern seaboard, allowing only a few areas of
scattered snow.
The most significant precipitation occurred in southern Florida as moist flow off the Gulf of Mexico produced moderate to heavy rain. With the cold air already in place, this was cold rain that
threatened to turn to snow for the already hard-hit state.
In addition, scattered snow fell in the Tennessee Valley and Ohio Valley.
In the West, moist air off the Pacific Ocean produced scattered rain in Northern California.
Cold air continued to be significant in the East, with the
coldest temperatures in the Northern Plains. The Northeast rose
into the 10s and 20s, while the Southeast saw temperatures in the
20s and 30s. The Northern Plains rose into the 0s and 10s. The
Southern Plains rose into the 30s and 40s, while the Northwest saw
temperatures in the 30s and 40s.
