The West Coast was expected to get a one-day reprieve from the wet weather on Saturday, after a week of storms left a large swath of the region drenched.
As the storm system shifts eastward, the West Coast was expected to get a day to dry out before of another storm that was due to arrive Sunday.
Wet weather was expected to persist in parts of the Southwest, with a mixture of snow and rain forecast to fall in the four corners region.
A large storm was set to pass through the nation’s midsection, dumping rain on the eastern Plains before heading into the Mississippi Valley. Further north, cold air was expected to produce freezing rain and snow in the northern Plains and upper Midwest.
Meanwhile, a high pressure system was expected to create dry conditions through the eastern third of the country.
Temperatures in the 20s and 30s were expected in the Northeast; in the 50s, 60s and 70s in the Southeast; in the 30s in the northern Plains, and in the 30s and 40s in the Northwest.
Temperatures in the lower 48 states on Friday ranged from a low of minus 12 degrees at Berlin, N.H., to a high of 88 degrees at Miami, Fla.
