***Improving weather for the Northeast by Monday***
***Lake effect snowfall downwind of the Great Lakes***
***Quiet weather pattern elsewhere***
After a period of active winter weather with heavy snow across interior
portions of New England, the low pressure system responsible for that snow is now rapidly moving away from the region. Lingering snow is likely across northern New England through Sunday night, with just isolated snow showers possible for the beginning of the work week.
Farther to the west across the Great Lakes and Upper Midwest, scattered snow showers are likely through Tuesday owing to both lake-effect processes and a warm front crossing the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes.
Scattered snow showers are also possible across the mountains of the Pacific Northwest and the Northern Rockies as shortwave energy helps generate some modest lift in the atmosphere.
Elsewhere across the continental U.S., a relatively quiet weather pattern can be expected through Tuesday with a surface ridge of high pressure over the West and another ridge over the Deep South.
