US Weather Spotlight: 12-10-18

A relatively quiet pattern is in store for most of the Central slice of the country, imagine taking a slice of the US just to the West of MT down to AZ and then make another cut over Lake Michigan down to AL. That part of the country is relatively quiet, but on the NE coast and Western States not the same story.

First over to the NE: Looking a low pressure system just NE of Maine that'll spin up some snow showers in the area. Could see as much as 3 inches in Northern Vermont, 4-6 inches in Canada. But that low will quickly move out to sea by the early evening.

Now shifting attention to the West coast, a Low pressure system there will cause a mix of rain and snow showers. On the coastline, looks to be primarily rain. Then the more East you go towards Montana, the precip type changes over to snow. By the end of day today, could be looking at 6-9 inches across Wrn portions of Washington. Then towards NW Idaho and Central Idaho as well, we're looking at 2-4 inches and 1/2 to 1 inch respectively. Locally heavier amounts are possible.

Both systems look to taper off by late evening today.
