...ACTIVE WEATHER PATTERN ACROSS THE WEST AND RELATIVELY QUIET  
ACROSS MUCH OF THE SOUTHERN TIER STATES...  
 
THE WEATHER PATTERN WILL BE IMPACTFUL ACROSS THE WESTERN THIRD OF  
THE NATION AS A PACIFIC COLD FRONT REACHES CALIFORNIA BY WEDNESDAY  
MORNING AND THEN TRACKS INLAND ACROSS THE INTERMOUNTAIN WEST  
THROUGH THURSDAY. THE RESULT WILL BE MODERATE TO HEAVY RAIN FOR  
THE LOWER ELEVATIONS OF CENTRAL AND NORTHERN CALIFORNIA, AND HEAVY  
SNOW FOR THE SIERRA NEVADA AND NORTHERN ROCKIES. THERE IS A  
MARGINAL RISK FOR FLOODING ACROSS PARTS OF CALIFORNIA AS THIS  
STORM SYSTEM PASSES THROUGH THE REGION.  
 
MUCH OF THE SOUTHERN 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. EARLIER IN THE WEEK HAS EXITED THE EAST COAST WITH THE  
EXCEPTION OF THE FLORIDA PENINSULA, WHERE SCATTERED SHOWERS ARE  
EXPECTED NEAR THE EAST COAST REGION ON WEDNESDAY. THE NEXT CHANCE  
OF RAIN RETURNS TO THE MIDWEST AND GREAT LAKES REGION EARLY  
THURSDAY AS A COLD FRONT APPROACHES THESE AREAS.
