Weekend Weather Spotlight: 3-19-21

Two troughs affect parts of the country the next few days producing rain chances in the Southeast, and rain and snow showers from the Pacific Northwest to the Plains and Upper Midwest.

First, in the Southeast rain will gradually move out of NC and VA and offshore by early to mid-evening. This activity however will build south and west through the weekend, and may mostly stay off the coast from the Carolinas to FL, but there will be some chance along the coast with the potential of building west into southern GA and northern FL. 

Further west, a trough will produce scattered rain and snow showers from WA south to central CA, and east to the northern Rockies today and Saturday. By Saturday overnight a leading cold front makes it into the northern Plains bringing precipitation chances to ND southwest to eastern CO. Sunday chances make it eastward to MN and southwestward to SE CO, and then from western UP of MI to N NM Sunday overnight. Much of this activity will be light for the most part until the beginning of the new week in the Plains and Midwest when more moisture will be pulled north from the Gulf.
