A DEVELOPING LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM OFF THE SOUTHEAST U.S. COASTLINE
WILL BRING A MIX OF RAIN AND SNOW TO PORTIONS OF THE EASTERN
CAROLINAS AND SOUTHEASTERN GEORGIA THIS MORNING. PRECIPITATION IS
EXPECTED TO CHANGE TO ALL RAIN BY AFTERNOON, AND WILL WIND DOWN
THIS EVENING AS THE SYSTEM PULLS AWAY. THE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM
WILL UNDERGO A PERIOD OF RAPID INTENSIFICATION THIS AFTERNOON
THROUGH MONDAY MORNING AS IT MOVES NORTHEASTWARD. SNOW WILL BE
POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF COASTAL NEW ENGLAND LATE SUNDAY NIGHT
INTO MONDAY ON THE NORTHWESTERN FRINGE OF THIS LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM.

A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL MOVE FROM THE NORTHERN PLAINS TO THE
UPPER MIDWEST TODAY, BRINGING SNOW AND GUSTY WINDS WITH IT.
SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS WILL GENERALLY BE LIGHT, FOUR INCHES OR
LESS FOR MOST AREAS. HOWEVER, WIND GUSTS TO 60 MPH ACROSS THE
REGION WILL RESULT IN BLIZZARD CONDITIONS AT TIMES, WHICH WILL
MAKE TRAVEL VERY DIFFICULT OR IMPOSSIBLE IN THE AFFECTED AREAS.
THE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL MOVE INTO THE GREAT LAKES SUNDAY
NIGHT INTO MONDAY, WITH GENERALLY LIGHT SNOW POSSIBLE FOR MUCH OF
THE OHIO VALLEY. BY MONDAY EVENING, ANOTHER AREA OF LOW PRESSURE
WILL DEVELOP ACROSS THE MID-ATLANTIC REGION, WHICH WILL THEN MOVE
OFFSHORE. AREAS OF RAIN AND SNOW WILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE
APPALACHIANS, MID-ATLANTIC, AND THE NORTHEAST MONDAY NIGHT INTO
TUESDAY.

HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN ACROSS THE WESTERN U.S. THROUGH TUESDAY,
WHICH WILL KEEP DRY CONDITIONS IN PLACE. TEMPERATURES WILL
GRADUALLY WARM ACROSS THE WEST COAST, WITH AFTERNOON HIGH
TEMPERATURES EXPECTED TO BE 10 TO 20 DEGREES ABOVE AVERAGE ON
MONDAY.
