Weather Underground Forecast for Monday, February 17, 2014

A cold frontal boundary will move across the Pacific Northwest on Monday, while a wave of low pressure will shift eastward over the central Plains.

Another round of active weather is forecast for the Pacific Northwest on Monday. Moderate to heavy rain will be possible at lower elevations across Washington, Oregon and northern California, while the Cascades and the northern Rockies will experience heavy snow showers. The central Rockies will get a break from snowy weather due to high pressure over Colorado. Meanwhile, a ridge of high pressure will continue to build along the coast of southern California, bringing warm, dry conditions to the southwestern U.S.

A cold front will extend across the southern Plains and the Southeast on Monday, driving a mixture of rain, freezing rain and snow over a handful of states. Low pressure along the frontal boundary will draw moist air from the Gulf of Mexico to produce rainy weather across the Gulf Coast, the Southeast and the Tennessee Valley, while ice storms are forecast to impact central Illinois, central Indiana and Ohio. A swath of heavy snow showers are expected to move over the upper Midwest, the Great Lakes and parts of the Northeast. High pressure will keep most of Florida warm and sunny on Monday.

Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Sunday have ranged from a morning low of -27 degrees at Crane Lake, Minn. to a high of 85 degrees at Alpine, Texas
