US Short Range Weather thru Apr 22

***Strong Cold Front Clearing The East Coast By Saturday***

***Patchy Areas Of Light Precipitation Over The Rockies***

***Colder Temperatures For The Northern And Eastern U.S.***

The Strong Cold Front That Has Been Moving Eastward Across The Country Is Now Moving Offshore And Taking Most Of Its Bad Weather With It. The Exception Is The Florida Peninsula, Where The Southern End Of The Front Is Forecast To Stall Over South Florida, And This Will Keep Enough Moisture And Instability Around For The Development Of Scattered Showers And Thunderstorms.

A Weak Disturbance Progressing Southeastward Through The Western U.S. Will Trigger Widespread Shower Activity Over The Pacific Northwest And Along The Northern To Central Rockies This Weekend. Although Precipitation Totals Will Be Mostly Light To Moderate, Temperatures Will Be Low Enough To Support Accumulating Snowfall Over The Higher Elevations.

In The Wake Of The Cold Front Exiting The East Coast, A Large Ridge Of Canadian High Pressure Will Bring A Fresh Surge Of Colder And Drier Air To The Eastern United States. Many Locations May Get Cold Enough Overnight To Have Frost Or Even Freezing Conditions.

Over The Northern Tier States, A Cold Front Moving Southward Out Of Canada Will Begin To Drop Through The Northern Plains Late This Weekend. This System Will Not Be Much Of A Precipitation Maker, But It Will Bring Another Surge Of Cooler Air Into The North Central U.S.
