A complex weather pattern will set up over the Southwest on Friday, while an area of low pressure will slide across the Northeast.
A trough of low pressure will move across northern Mexico on Friday. This system will usher moderate to locally heavy rain over the Southwest and the Four Corners region, with the heaviest precipitation focusing over Arizona and New Mexico. High elevation snow showers will develop over Utah, Colorado and New Mexico, while mixed precipitation will affect the higher elevations of Arizona. In addition, lighter precipitation will spread across southern Nevada and southern California. Late evening rain will be possible over the central and southern Plains. High pressure over the eastern Pacific will keep weather conditions calm across northern California, the Pacific Northwest and the upper Intermountain West.
Meanwhile, temperatures are expected to drop across the northern Plains and the Mississippi Valley as an Arctic high pressure system sinks southward over the central third of the country.
Just to the east, an area of low pressure will bring another blast of winter weather to the Northeast and portions of the Mid-Atlantic. Winter storm warnings have been issued over Maine, where snow accumulations will approach one foot. Snow accumulations will stay below 6 inches across the majority of southern New England and the Mid-Atlantic. The Deep South and the Southeast will stay mostly clear of precipitation on Friday.
