The cold front will continue to move southward and eastward across
the central and eastern U.S. through Wednesday before low pressure
organizes along the front in the Lower Mississippi Valley. The low

depart into the Canadian Maritimes through Saturday morning. Most
of the snow will fall in a swath from New Mexico and northwestern
Texas into the Great Lakes and northern Maine. A total of 6-12
inches of snow is forecast for the Colorado and Wyoming Rockies
through Wednesday. Snow amounts of 4-8 inches are possible for
parts of the Southern Plains, Great Lakes and northern New England
through Friday morning. Several inches of rain are possible
through Saturday over the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic with embedded
thunderstorms likely.

The next Storm Summary will be issued by the Weather Prediction
Center at 200 PM MST. Please refer to your local National Weather
Service office for additional information on this event.
