US Short Range Weather to Apr 9

***Active Weather Pattern Developing Over The Western U.S.***

***Warmer Temperatures For Much Of The Central And Eastern U.S.***

A Developing Storm System Over The Inter-Mountain West Is Expected To Bring Unsettled Weather Across Much Of The Western U.S. Through The Rest Of The Weekend And Into Monday.

Persistent Onshore Flow From The Pacific Interacting With The Topography Of The West Coast Will Result In Periods Of Light To Moderate Rainfall From Northern California Into The Pacific Northwest, With Snowfall Confined To Mountainous Areas Above Treeline. Given That Colder Temperatures Are Expected To Arrive By Sunday Night, Snow Levels Should Fall As The Event Progresses And Include The Central And Northern Rockies.

Some Isolated Thunderstorm Activity May Also Develop In The
Inter-Mountain West As Some Instability May Be Present.

A Nice Change In The Weather Pattern Is In Store For Many Areas
South Of The Interstate 70 Corridor And East Of The High Plains
Through Monday As A Building High Pressure Ridge Aloft And
Southerly Flow At The Surface Allow Temperatures To Climb Well
Into The 70s And Even Low 80s.

As The Surface High Currently Near The East Coast Moves Offshore, This Will Allow For Winds To Veer Toward The South And Southwest, And Bring Conditions More Typical Of Early May Along With Greater Levels Of Humidity.

However, The Northeast And Great Lakes Region Will Likely Remain North Of A Frontal Boundary, Thus Keeping The Cool Conditions In Place For Now.
