A storm system will affect the southern and eastern parts of the country through the weekend with widespread rain, and some snow. A low-pressure system will begin the day in the northeast TX/southwest AR/northwest LA region, and a cold front will be draped from the eastern Great Lakes southwestward to central TX. As these features head east and northeast through the weekend widespread rain is expected from the southern Plains to the southeast, and north up through the Mid Atlantic and eastern parts of New England. Widespread rain amounts in the 1-3 inch range are likely from LA northeastward to eastern New England through Sunday, and a few inches of snow is possible as well on the northern fringe of this activity for areas such as southeast CO and west-central KS today, northern MO tonight, central IL and IN Saturday, north-central OH overnight Saturday, and then parts of New England mainly west of Boston and New York City on Sunday. A few isolated severe storms cannot be ruled out this afternoon in far southeast TX and western LA as higher energy ahead of an upper low builds into that area.
Elsewhere, nothing too major, but some active weather builds through the Pacific Northwest through the weekend and an Alberta Clipper type system could affect far northeast ND and northern Mn by late Sunday night.
