US Short Range Weather thru Feb 4

...Light Snow Showers Possible From The Northern Plains Into The

A Relatively Tranquil Period With Respect To Precipitation Is
Expected Across Much Of The Contiguous United States This Period.

A Series Of Weak Upper Level Disturbances Dropping Out Of Canada
Will Deliver Reinforcing Shots Of Colder Air Into The Central And
Eastern U.S.

As They Move Through A Broad Upper Trough Centered Over The Eastern U.S. These Systems Are Expected To Produce Snow Showers From The Northern Plains/Upper Midwest To The
Northeast/Northern Mid Atlantic States. These Systems Will Be
Deprived Of Moisture However And Therefore These Snows Are
Expected To Be Mainly Light In Nature...With Widespread Heavy
Accumulations Not Expected. One Exceptions May Be The West
Virginia Mountains Where Strong Upslope Flow May Help To Squeeze
Out Some Heavier Amounts.

As One Of These Disturbances Nears The Mid Atlantic Coast...A Surface Low Is Expected To Deepen And Begin Tracking To The North Along The Mid Atlantic To The Northeast Coasts On Sunday. However Models Show This System Remaining Far Enough Offshore To Keep Its Heavier Precipitation Off The Coast...Brushing The Northeast With Only Scattered Light Snows.

Meanwhile...Vigorous Northwesterly To Westerly Winds Across The
Great Lakes Will Bring The Return Of Lake Effect Snow Showers In
The Lee Of The Lakes.

Out West...Dry Conditions With Seasonal To Above Average
Temperatures Are Expected To Persist Through The Weekend Across
Much Of The West As High Pressure Extending East Out Of The
Northern Rockies Remains In Place.
