A cold frontal boundary will extend across the Intermountain West and over the central Plains on Tuesday, while a separate cold front will stretch from the Tennessee Valley to New England.
A mixture of rain and snow will push across the Tennessee Valley and the Ohio Valley due to a cold front over the eastern third of the country. Rainy weather will also move over the Mid-Atlantic on Tuesday, while freezing rain, sleet and snow will be possible across the Northeast. Low pressure will also bring a chance of thunderstorms to parts of Florida and Georgia.
A separate frontal boundary will stretch across the Intermountain West and the central Plains, as little to no precipitation is expected across the north central portion of the country. Widespread light snow showers will be possible in the Rockies, while a swath of heavy snow will move over the Great Lakes.
Out west, a cold front will inch southward towards the coast of Washington. This system will allow for light rain to develop in northwestern Washington. The remainder of the West Coast will stay clear of wet weather as a ridge of high pressure builds over the eastern Pacific. High pressure over the Great Basin will also influence a Santa Ana wind event over southern California.
