The upper trough that had been affecting the Plains and Midwest the past few days continues to move east through the Great Lakes, eastern Canada, and the Northeast through the weekend. Widespread precipitation is expected to exit northern New England early today, then much of this activity should be scattered light rain/snow showers building from the Great Lakes today further east the next few days and beginning to taper off late Sunday night in New England.
Elsewhere, another upper trough begins to build into the Northwest throughout the weekend and will bring scattered rain/snow showers to the Pacific Northwest and Northern Rockies during this stretch. This activity is expected to make it into the Northern Plains by Saturday overnight and Sunday, and possibly as far east as MN and as far south as KS on Sunday and Sunday night. As this system moves further east into the new week consecutive days of severe weather is looking possible across the south.
