Weather Underground Forecast for Monday, March 10, 2014

A cold frontal boundary will extend across the West Coast, the Intermountain West and the northern Plains on Monday, while a low pressure system will develop along the Gulf of Mexico.

A cold front will stretch from central California to North Dakota on Monday, bringing a round of rain and snow to a handful of states. Rainy weather can be expected across northern California, Oregon and Washington during the first half of the day. As this system propagates eastward, a mixture of rain and snow will be possible across the Great Basin and the Intermountain West. Gusty winds and an abundance of moisture will result in heavy snow across the northern Rockies and into the adjacent Plains states. High pressure will keep most of the Southwest clear of precipitation, as temperatures are expected to jump into the 80s across the Desert Southwest.

Meanwhile, a low pressure system is expected to develop along the western portion of the Gulf of Mexico on Monday. This system will provide rain and thunderstorms to southeastern Texas and southern Louisiana. Just to the east, high pressure will keep conditions clear across the Southeast.

Along the northern tier of the country, a series of low pressure systems will inch across the Great Lakes and the Northeast, bringing light rain and snow to Michigan, Pennsylvania and New York. Heavier snow will be possible along northwestern New England on Monday.

Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Sunday have ranged from a morning low of -11 degrees at Pellston, Mich. to a high of 84 degrees at North Island, Calif.
