The New Year brings more action to the Pac Northwest, clear but chilly in the Northeast and more lake effect snow in the Midwest. RC 

 

Northeast

Clear and chilly for the region on the first day of the New Year with winds up to 30 mph. As is the case this time of year, the break is short lived with another system on tap for tomorrow bringing rain and snow. Another system arrives on Sunday and could add to the powder count. Look for highs in the mid teens to the mid 30's.

 

West

Another power packed storm beats up on the Pac Northwest today, bringing heavy snow to the mountains of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Wyoming. This system should drop several inches today and brings heavy winds by this evening. This system also brings the threat of flooding southwest Washington and Northwest Oregon. This system will move into the mountains of California tomorrow,  bringing more snow to the Sierra. Look for highs in the mid teens for the mountains to the mid 50's for coastal areas. 

 

Midwest       

More lake effect snow for the northern portions of the region today along with high winds. The rough string of weather for the region continues through the weekend with more snow and very cool temps, keeping things in the single digits through the weekend.
