Weather across America

(NATIONAL) A clipper system set to produce light snow across the Upper Midwest, a storm off the Southeast Coast will make rain along the East Coast and moderate snow for Maine, and a warm up for the Northern High/Northern Plains into the Central Plains.

A clipper system over the Great Lakes will move slowly into Southeastern Canada while the cold front dissipates by Tuesday. The system will produce light snow across parts of the Upper Mississippi Valley/Upper Great Lakes by Sunday evening. The snow will expand into parts of the Ohio Valley on Monday and into the Lower Great Lakes Monday evening. 

On Tuesday, the snow will move into parts of the Central/Northern Appalachians.  

Meanwhile, low pressure just offshore of Florida's east coast will move northeastward, continuing to be just offshore and move into the Canadian Maritimes by Tuesday evening. As a result, light rain will develop over parts of the Southeast and move into the Carolinas on Monday afternoon into Monday evening. 

By Monday evening, the rain will expand into the Mid-Atlantic and Southern New England Coast. Light snow will start over parts of Maine on Monday evening, also. 

On Tuesday, the snow will continue over Maine, with wrap-around moisture producing snow over other parts of the Northeast. The snowfall totals will be moderate over Maine and light elsewhere. Furthermore, light rain will continue over parts of Florida through Tuesday.  

Elsewhere, upper-level energy over Texas will aid in producing light rain along the Western Gulf Coast overnight Sunday into Monday. Moreover, a weakening front will move onshore over the Pacific Northwest on early Monday morning into Monday afternoon, producing light rain over parts of the Northwest Coast. 

Next, weak upper-level ridging will aid in warming up the Northern High/Northern Plains into the Central Plains as temperatures become 10 to 15 degrees above average. However, the warm temperatures, dry fuels, and strong wind will produce favorable conditions for the spread of fire. Therefore, on Tuesday, the Storm Prediction Center has issued an Elevated area of fire weather over parts of the Northern High Plains. 

Lastly, another area of low pressure and associated front over Central Canada will aid in producing light snow over parts of the Northern Plains into the Upper Great Lakes on Tuesday into Tuesday evening.
