Friday will be a soggy day for much of the East Coast but folks across the rest of the country will be able to enjoy a relatively quiet end to the work week.
By morning, a low-pressure system will be making its way through the Northeast with a cold front connected to its southwest flank that runs down through the Gulf Coast. As a result, storms will be ongoing throughout the entire East Coast as the sun rises. Scattered rain showers will be trekking their way across much of the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, and coastal Northeast.
Folks across more interior portions of the Northeast, mainly from the Hudson Valley up through Maine, will be waking up to a mix of rain and snow. Temperatures will be marginally cold enough for snow, so any folks who do see snow can expect very meager accumulation, with 1 to 3 inches in most areas.
As the day drags on, some areas will continue to deal with lingering rain or snow showers along the East Coast while others farther inland get to dry off. By evening, parts of New England and some scattered spots along the Southeast coast will be the only ones still dealing with storms as the cold front pulls off the coast.
That said, a secondary cold front will be draped over the interior Northeast Friday evening too. This front brings in some much cooler, Canadian air behind it and may trigger a few scattered snow and rain showers across the Great Lakes, Ohio Valley, and interior Northeast during the afternoon and evening.
For regions west of the Mississippi, there is not a whole lot to write home about in terms of weather. Other than a couple snow showers that may dot the northern Rockies, the rest of country can enjoy some dry weather as high pressure dominates the Central and Western U.S.
The Upper Midwest will start to feel that Canadian air as highs range from the teens to the 30s. The Rockies will be the next coldest place, as highs only reach the 20s and 30s for most. Elsewhere, across the Intermountain West, Midwest, northern High Plains, and Northeast is expected to hover in and between the 30s and 50s. The Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Mid-South, Deep South, central and southern Plains, and West Coast will see milder temperatures in the 50s and 60s. Lastly, temperatures will climb into the 70s across the Desert Southwest, southern Texas, and Gulf Coast.
