Weather Underground Forecast for Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013.
Severe weather threats will continue to linger over the southern Plains on Tuesday, while a ridge of high pressure is expected to build along the Gulf Coast.
A cold frontal boundary will move out of northern California and into the Southwest on Tuesday, as coastal showers are expected in southern California. Rain and snow will also be possible in parts of Arizona and New Mexico, while heavier snow will affect the Great Basin. A low pressure system along the northern California coast will continue to usher more moisture inland, as the Sierra Nevadas will have a chance for high elevation snow. A separate low pressure system will trigger snowy weather over the central and northern Rockies, as rain will also push through lower elevations throughout the Intermountain West. The Pacific Northwest will avoid precipitation, although temperatures will remain in the 40s and 50s along the coast and in the 50s and 60s inland.
Low pressure will continue to linger over the central third of the country on Tuesday, as severe thunderstorms will be possible in northern Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas. The northern Plains and upper Midwest can expect a mixture of rain and snow throughout the day as a result of this low pressure system. The Southeast will experience high pressure along the Gulf Coast, keeping conditions warm and muggy. Spotty rain will push across the Ohio Valley and into the Northeast, but should be intermittent throughout Tuesday.
Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Monday have ranged from a morning low of 12 degrees at Bigfork, Minn. to a high of 100 degrees at Hollywood, Fla.
