An active, if not stormy, pattern in the coming days across the southern-third of the Nation

A storm system emerging from the western U.S. will cross the southern Plains on Saturday and drift eastward along the Gulf Coast, reaching Florida by Monday. 

Rainfall associated with the storm could reach 1 to 2 inches from the central and southern Plains to the southern Atlantic Coast.  Meanwhile, another strong Pacific storm will arrive in California, with impacts—including heavy rain, mountain snow, and high winds—peaking from February 4-6.

As a long-duration event, this system has the potential to be more consequential than the previous storm, with precipitation totals of 4 to 8 inches or more expected in California’s coastal and mountainous areas.  In contrast, little or no precipitation will occur during the next 5 days in the Midwest and Northeast.

Elsewhere, mild weather will prevail nearly nationwide into next week, although cooler air will gradually overspread the West.
