US Weather Spotlight: 3-15-19

System that brought blizzard conditions to the Plains and some flooding to parts of the Midwest continues eastward the next few days continuing rain and snow shower chances in the Great Lakes and northeast today with snow showers becoming more isolated on Saturday in New England. An inch or two of snow accumulation is possible with this activity mainly in the favorable lake effect snow belts off the Great Lakes. Showers and maybe even a few storms will extend along a line south and southwestward all the way to the Gulf Coast states. Shower and storm chances continue through the weekend along the Gulf Coast with increasing chances by early Sunday in north-central FL and southern GA. 

Nothing else really going on through the weekend across the rest of the country as a welcoming dry trend for some settles in. Widespread below average highs are expected however along with the dry conditions in the Plains, Midwest, Ohio River Valley, lower Mississippi River Valley, and into the northeast during the weekend. You will have to go to the western part of the country to find more seasonable highs for mid March.

If you are looking for warmth you will have to head to the usual spots in the southwest and much of FL where highs will get close to or above 80 through the weekend.
