At the same time, a cold front associated with the system will move into the Northern and Central Plains. The cold front will pull moisture in from the Gulf of Mexico ahead of this front, bringing showers and thunderstorms to the center of the nation, There is a slight chance of severe thunderstorm development from Iowa through Nebraska. Cooler air pouring in from Canada will allow for a combination of rain and snow showers to develop along the northern side of the front as it moves through the Dakotas and into the Upper Midwest. Expect up to 10 inches of snow in parts of western and northern North Dakota on Saturday. Winter weather advisories remain in effect from the Northern Rockies through northern Minnesota.
In the East, high pressure continues building over the Eastern Valleys and allows for sunny and dry conditions to persist. This allows for a warming trend to continue and pushes high temperatures back into the 60s to near 70 in some areas.
