The nation's weather

A pair of low pressure systems will bring very active weather to parts of the country Sunday.

First, a large storm over the Ohio Valley will move northeastward during the day, scattering showers from the Tennessee Valley into New England. The heaviest precipitation will fall in New England between Sunday morning and early afternoon. Showers in the Tennessee Valley and Ohio Valley will be cool because they will occur on the west side of the storm as it moves to the Northeast.

Second, an unseasonably strong storm will continue moving onto the West Coast. This storm will bring winds, rain and high-elevation snow to the Northwest and California. The western slopes of the Sierra Nevadas may experience a few inches of snow from this storm.

Temperatures in the Northeast will rise into the 50s, 60s, and 70s. The Southeast will see temperatures in the 70s, 80s, and some 90s in Florida. The Southern Plains will rise into the 60s and 70s, while the Southwest will see temperatures in the 80s and 90s. Temperatures in the Lower 48 states ranged Saturday from a morning low of 26 degrees at Laramie, Wyo., to a high of 91 degrees at Melbourne, Fla.
