The nation's weather
Weather Underground Forecast for Wednesday, March 28, 2012.
Scattered cloud cover as well as showers and thunderstorms will push from the Mid-West into the Northeast and Ohio Valley on Wednesday as low pressure continues its trek along the Canadian Border. This storm has limited access to moisture, so precipitation will continue to be mostly light. Some thunderstorms could develop along a front associated with this storm. The front will drape from the Northeastern interior back through the Central Plains. Some of these storms could become severe. Winds and hail are the most likely severe weather threats, tornadoes are not anticipated.
In the West, another day of wet weather is on tap as a Pacific storm lingers off the coast. Precipitation will spread south to Southern California, while becoming reinforced in the Northwest. High elevation areas will see some snow, with a foot or two likely accumulating above 6500 feet in the Lake Tahoe region.
Precipitation will also spill over into Idaho, with rain and high elevation snow anticipated throughout the state.
The Plains will see another clear day, with temperatures slightly cooler than yesterday 's balmy highs most places. The East will see warmer temperatures as a warm front approaches. Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Tuesday have ranged from a morning low of -7 degrees at Mt. Washington, N.H. to a high of 88 degrees at Wink, Texas
