Weather Underground Forecast for Sunday, Feb. 02, 2014

A cold frontal boundary will extend from the southern Plains to New England on Saturday, while a low pressure system will skim across the West Coast.

A very active weather system will inch across the central and eastern U.S. on Saturday due to a frontal boundary stretching from southern Texas to Maine. Ice storms will impact a handful of states, including Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia and Virginia. Meanwhile, snow showers will also accompany this frontal boundary, but will remain along the northwestern side of the front. Snowy weather can be expected in a handful of states, but the heaviest snow is likely to occur in the southern Ohio Valley, the northern Tennessee Valley and into the Mid-Atlantic. Rain and thunderstorms will develop across the Gulf Coast and the Eastern Seaboard. High pressure will build over the central Plains, the northern Plains and the upper Midwest, as very cold, blustery conditions will linger over the area.

A low pressure system is expected to skim across parts of the West Coast on Sunday, as showers are forecast to develop along the California coast. Light snow showers will also push across the Sierras, as 1 to 2 inches of snow are forecast for Sunday. In the Pacific Northwest, an onshore flow will bring rainy weather to parts of Oregon and Washington, while snow is also expected in parts of the Cascades and northern Rockies.

Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Saturday have ranged from a morning low of -21 degrees at Merrill, Wis. to a high of 87 degrees at Immokalee, Fla.
