***DRIER WEATHER FOR THE EAST COAST***

***RAIN AND SNOW SHOWERS FOR THE NORTHERN ROCKIES***

***COLD WEATHER FOR THE NORTHERN TIER STATES***

AFTER A NOR`EASTER BROUGHT RAIN AND ACCUMULATING SNOW FROM THE
MID-ATLANTIC TO NEW ENGLAND, WEATHER CONDITIONS WILL IMPROVE AS WE
CLOSE OUT THE WEEK.  EASTERN NEW ENGLAND WILL STILL HAVE SOME SNOW
AROUND EARLY ON THANKSGIVING DAY, WITH DECREASING SNOWFALL BY
AFTERNOON.  IT WILL REMAIN COLDER THAN AVERAGE FOR THE EASTERN
U.S. WITH HIGHS IN THE 30S AND 40S EXPECTED AS AN UPPER LEVEL
TROUGH REMAINS OVER THE REGION.  MODERATING TEMPERATURES ARE
LIKELY BY THE WEEKEND.

OUT WEST, MORE MOUNTAIN SNOW IS EXPECTED FOR THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS
OF THE NORTHERN ROCKIES NEAR A PERSISTENT STATIONARY FRONTAL
BOUNDARY, AND RAIN SHOWERS FOR THE LOWER VALLEY LOCATIONS OF THE
PACIFIC NORTHWEST AND NORTHERN GREAT BASIN.  THE GREATEST
CONCENTRATION OF HEAVY SNOW SHOULD REMAIN NORTH OF THE BORDER IN
ALBERTA AND BRITISH COLUMBIA.

ELSEWHERE ACROSS THE CONTINENTAL U.S., COLD WEATHER WILL CONTINUE
FOR THE NORTHERN PLAINS AND UPPER MIDWEST AS A CANADIAN SURFACE
HIGH GOVERNS THE WEATHER PATTERN.  NICE WEATHER WILL CONTINUE FOR
THE SOUTHWESTERN U.S. WITH MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES AND DRY CONDITIONS.
