Sunshine will prevail across most of the Northeast southward into the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast on Sunday. A little leftover lake-effect snow will be winding down across western New York. There may be showers in spots across Florida.

A low-pressure system moving north of the Great Lakes will prompt snow showers across the Upper Midwest. Brisk winds and a minor accumulation of snow may occur across northern Minnesota, northern Wisconsin and northern Michigan.

A storm will slowly gather in the western Gulf of Mexico. Moisture from this storm will produce rain across East Texas into Louisiana. As this moisture flows northward into the southern Plains, it will bring snow across Kansas into northern New Mexico and southern Colorado, where snow may be heavy in the mountains.

High pressure settling over the northern Plains will promote dry, but very cold weather across the Dakotas into Montana and Wyoming. Cold air moving up against the Rockies will generate snow across parts of western Montana and western Wyoming. While it will be rather chilly across the Great Salt Lake Basin, sunshine along the West Coast from Washington to California will help to promote warm, but dry conditions.
