...ACTIVE WEATHER PATTERN ACROSS THE WEST AND RELATIVELY QUIET  
EAST OF THE ROCKIES...  
 
MUCH OF THE CENTRAL AND EASTERN U.S. WILL BE RELATIVELY UNEVENTFUL  
WEATHERWISE THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THIS WEEK AS A LARGE SURFACE  
HIGH GOVERNS THE OVERALL WEATHER PATTERN. THE FRONT AND SURFACE  
LOW THAT PRODUCED THE WIDESPREAD RAINFALL ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST  
U.S. ON MONDAY HAS EXITED THE EAST COAST WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE  
FLORIDA PENINSULA, WHERE SCATTERED SHOWERS AND A FEW STORMS ARE  
EXPECTED. THE NEXT CHANCE OF RAIN RETURNS TO THE MIDWEST AND  
GREAT LAKES REGION EARLY THURSDAY AS A COLD FRONT APPROACHES THESE  
AREAS.  
 
THE WEATHER PATTERN WILL BE MORE IMPACTFUL ACROSS THE WESTERN  
THIRD OF THE NATION AS TWO SEPARATE FRONTAL BOUNDARIES PASS  
THROUGH. THE COLD FRONT CURRENTLY ACROSS THE INTERMOUNTAIN WEST  
IS EXPECTED TO PRODUCE PATCHY AREAS OF LIGHT RAIN AND MOUNTAIN  
SNOW FROM NORTHERN CALIFORNIA TO THE NORTHERN ROCKIES. THE SECOND  
AND STRONGER SYSTEM ARRIVES IN CALIFORNIA BY WEDNESDAY MORNING AND  
SHOULD RESULT IN MODERATE TO HEAVY RAIN FOR THE LOWER ELEVATIONS  
OF CENTRAL AND NORTHERN CALIFORNIA, AND HEAVY SNOW FOR THE SIERRA  
NEVADA AND SISKIYOU MOUNTAINS.
