US Short Range Weather thru Jan 28

Unsettled Weather Continues For Much Of The West Coast....

Mixed Wintry Precipitation Affects The Central Plains And Mid-West...

As The Wintry Precipitation Affecting The East Coast Comes To An
End...A Very Active Pattern For The West Coast Continues.

An Upper Level Trough Associated With A Surface Trough Is Approaching The Southern California Coast. This Feature Combined With A Stream Of Subtropical Moisture Is Providing The Desert Southwest Light To Moderate Rain...And Snow In The Higher Elevations.

The Upper Level Trough Finally Exits The Region By Saturday Evening And Moves Toward The Central Plains. Most Of The Precipitation Will Begin To Taper Off By Saturday Evening And End By Sunday Morning.

To The North...A Separate Upper Level Low Is Beginning To Move
Into The Northern Pacific Coast. A Frontal System Is Already
Pushing Inland And Will Take Its Time Making Its Way Over The
Rockies. However...This Upper Level Low Will Also Be Very Slow
Moving...And A Series Of Disturbances Will Keep Affecting This
Region For The Duration Of The Short Range Period. Thus...Expect
A Continuation Of Rain And Snow In The Higher Elevations Even
After The Aforementioned Cold Front Pushes Further Inland.

A Stationary Front Currently Draped Over The Southern Plains... Which Is At The Tail End Of The Front That Affected The East Coast...Will Begin To Push North As A Warm Front By Saturday.
As It Pushes North Into The Central Plains And Moves Towards The
Midwest...Freezing Rain And/Or Sleet Will Develop Ahead Of The
Front With Rain To The South Of The Wintry Precipitation Activity.
This Mixed Wintry Precipitation Is Expected To Continue As The
Front Pushes Towards The Upper Great Lakes.
