US Short Term Forecast thru Feb 10

...Soaking rains and heavy snows will continue out West...

...Quick moving systems will streak light snows from the Midwest to the Northeast and Northern Mid-Atlantic states...

Weather will remain active across the Western U.S. this weekend where persistent onshore flow will bring an abundance of moisture inland.

Weak pieces of energy embedded in the flow aloft should help ignite widespread precipitation surrounding a frontal boundary stretched through Oregon...the Intermountain West...and Central Rockies.

The sufficient moisture supply in combination with the terrain should make for impressive multi-day totals...especially over western Oregon and down across northern California.

In general...snow levels will be on the rise out west...but snowfall will still be measured in feet along some of the higher elevations of the Sierra Nevada...Wasatch...and Uinta ranges.

Also...a warm front surging northward in the Pacific will bring a threat for freezing rain over northwest Oregon.

A surface low is expected to deepen off the Southeast coast and then
quickly race out into the Atlantic on Saturday...but not before bringing
some rain into the Carolina coasts and northern Florida.

Farther north...light snows be possible with a series of weak impulses rippling through the Midwest...Northeast...and northern Mid-Atlantic states this weekend.

Limited moisture and the quick progression of these systems should keep snowfall accumulations to a minimum.
