...An end to the recent very wet weather pattern across the Central to
...Severe weather threat across the Pacific Northwest on Saturday...
...Record high temperatures possible this weekend from the Northern
Rockies into the Northern High Plains...
A cold front moving off the east coast on Saturday will bring an end to
the recent very wet weather pattern that has plagued large portions of the
country from the mid section of the nation into the Southeast. Locally
heavy rains possible along this front across coastal sections of the
Carolinas on Saturday. Otherwise, much of the nation will see dry weather
over the next two days.
An exception to the mostly dry weather across the country will be along
portions of the west coast from northern California into the Pacific
Northwest. A strong upper level low will be moving northeastward across
these areas Saturday into Sunday, setting the stage for heavy rains and
potentially severe weather.
Ahead of the area of heavy rains, record high temperatures are possible
Saturday across the Northern Great Basin into the Northern Rockies and
into the Northern High Plains on Sunday. Temperatures will be 20 to 25
degrees warmer than average across these areas. In contrast, below
average temperatures are expected to push eastward from the Upper
Mississippi Valley/Great Lakes region on Saturday and into the Northeast
