US Short Range Weather through Mar 18

***Rain From The Central Plains To The Mid-Atlantic***

***Developing Low Pressure System Over The Northern Plains***

***Warm In The South And Cold North Of The Ohio River***

It Appears That Unsettled Weather Will Be Setting Up Over Much Of
The Ohio Valley And Into The Mid-Atlantic Region This Weekend.

A Strong Cold Front Is Forecast To Slowly Move Southward From The
Great Lakes Region To Tennessee And North Carolina By Sunday
Night.

This Is Expected To Produce A Band Of Light To Moderate Rainfall, With Perhaps Some Snow In The Highest Elevations Of The Central Appalachians. Another Round Of Heavier Precipitation Is Likely On Monday For Much Of This Region As Additional Shortwave Energy Moves Overhead.

Over The Northern Rockies And Extending Into The Northern Plains
States, A Pacific Cold Front Will Interact With A Stationary Front With A Strong Temperature Contrast Over Montana And Southwestern
Canada.

This Will Allow For Cyclogenesis To Occur Over Montana And Form A Relatively Strong Low Pressure System Over The Dakotas And Then Into Minnesota. A Band Of Moderate To Heavy Snow Is Likely On The North And West Side Of This Low On Sunday And Into Monday, Along With Gusty Winds.

Elsewhere, Temperatures Are Forecast To Be Well Above Normal Over Much Of The Deep South, Southern Texas, And Into The Desert
Southwest As A Sub-Tropical Ridge Holds Firm Over The Region With Mostly Sunny Skies.

North Of The Main Frontal Zone Over The Central And Eastern U.S., Cold Weather Will Be In The Forecast This Weekend From The Midwest To The Northeast, With Temperatures Feeling More Like February Instead Of March.
