At a Glance
After a warmup, cooler temperatures will return to the central U.S. late week.
An active pattern will bring rain and mountain snow to the Northwest, Rockies.
A late week system will track across the South, East.
A shift in the weather pattern will bring temperature changes to the central U.S. as the Northwest sees more rounds of rain and mountain snow. The South might see the beginning of what could be a multi-day soaking for parts of the region by late week.
Below we take a look at three things we are watching in the weather for the next several days.
The record cold temperatures have come to an end across the central and southern U.S. and temperatures will continue to warm through Tuesday.
High temperatures will be 10 to 20 degrees warmer than average on Tuesday in much of the Plains. This translates to highs in the 60s and 70s in the Central and Southern Plains, with 30s, 40s and 50s farther north.
However, a cold front will knock temperatures back down to near and below average in the Plains mid-to-late week. The good news is that it will not be nearly as cold as the recent arctic blast.
Milder conditions will also extend across the South and to the East Coast.
