Mississippi Valleys.

The low pressure system off the coast of Oregon is expected to
move southward and onshore into southwestern Oregon this morning.
Scattered snow currently over the Pacific Northwest is expected to
gradually taper off from north to south this morning as the system
moves farther to the south. Meanwhile, snow will continue across
the higher elevations of northern California including the Sierra
Nevada before becoming more scattered in nature later on Sunday
and spreading further into the Intermountain West. On the heels of
this storm, another system is forecast to arrive Sunday night
across the Pacific Northwest and bring additional heavy snowfall.
East of the Rockies, snow and mixed precipitation will continue to
develop across the Central Plains and Middle Mississippi Valley
before reaching the Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic by Sunday
evening. As the main feature currently impacting the West enters
the Great Plains, widespread snow will develop across the Upper
Midwest and Great Lakes on Monday, with a wintry mix found across
the Mid-Atlantic. The wintry precipitation will move into the
Northeast by Tuesday. On the southern edge of the storm, heavy
rain will be likley across portions of the Middle Mississippi
Valley through early Tuesday.

The next storm summary will be issued by the Weather Prediction
Center at 700 AM PST. Please refer to your local National Weather
Service office for additional information on this event.
