The cold front will continue to move eastward across the eastern
U.S. through Wednesday before low pressure organizes along the
front in the Lower Mississippi Valley. The low will then track
northeastward into New England for Friday and depart into the
Canadian Maritimes through Saturday morning. Most of the snow is
forecast to fall in a swath from New Mexico and northwestern Texas
into the Great Lakes and northern Maine. The Southern Plains,
Great Lakes and northern New England can expect 4-8 inches of snow
through Friday morning. A wintry mix of sleet and freezing rain is
expected to fall just south of the swath of snow from the central
Texas/Oklahoma border into the Midwest, northern Mid-Atlantic and
New England. Several inches of rain are possible through Saturday
over the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic with embedded thunderstorms

The next Storm Summary will be issued by the Weather Prediction
Center at 800 AM MST. Please refer to your local National Weather
Service office for additional information on this event.
