Two storm systems spreading rain or snow are active in the country Sunday.
The same system that brought wintry weather to the Plains and Mississippi Valley in recent days will move through the Upper Midwest, into central Canada. Its associated cold front will move through the eastern third of the country, spreading rain from the central Gulf Coast through the Appalachians and into New England. Closer to the center of the storm, cold air will produce snow in the Upper Midwest. Winter Storm Warnings are in effect for parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin in anticipation of several inches of snow through the afternoon. As the storm moves to the northeast, snow will diminish.
The second storm will move into the Northwest and Western mountains, bringing widespread rain and high-elevation snow from Washington and Oregon through the northern Rockies.
A high pressure system will keep California and the Southwest dry, while another high will provide dry conditions along the Eastern seaboard.
Temperatures in the Northeast will be in the 40s and 50s, and in the Southeast in the 60s and 70s. The Northern Plains will rise into the 30s and 40s, while the Southern Plains will see temperatures in the 60s and 70s. The Northwest will rise into the 40s and 50s.
Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Saturday ranged from a low of 1 degrees at Alamosa, Colo., to a high of 85 degrees at Camarillo, Calif.
