Weekend Weather Spotlight: 3-6-20

Rain, snow, and mild temperatures all expected in parts of the country through the weekend, but nothing too major. 

In the east, a weakening low-pressure system will produce a few snow showers from the eastern Great Lakes to parts of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. Another low-pressure system strengthens off the Atlantic coast throughout today and tonight and will be close enough to the coast to produce rain mainly from the northern NC coast northward to the southern New England coast affecting mostly areas closer to the coast. Some heavy downpours and brief gusty winds will be possible, but the majority of the heavier precipitation and strong winds are expected to stay offshore. 

In the west, a trough builds into the Pacific Northwest today and builds south and east into the Plains through the weekend producing rain and snow. A surface low-pressure system developing Sunday evening in eastern CO and moves east into KS into the overnight potentially producing some heavy downpours late in the evening and overnight in southern NE, eastern KS, cental and northeastern OK, and western MO. 

Very mild temperatures will develop between these two systems in parts of the Plains and Midwest with widespread 60s and some 70s which is 20 degrees or more above average in some of these areas.
