The East Coast will remain mild for one more day, with temperatures Monday rising about 10 degrees above normal for early December. Dry weather and a mix of clouds and sunshine will accompany the mild conditions in many areas. The day may start with fog and persistent clouds in New England, while periodic rain and thunderstorms may occur in southern Georgia and northern Florida.
Colder air is expected to return to the interior Northeast and Ohio Valley along with rain and snow showers. A brisk wind will make it feel even colder.
The cooler air will also extend to the Tennessee Valley and into the southern Plains. While much of the region should be dry, a little snow is expected across the Texas Panhandle in the morning. The cold will persist across the central and northern Plains, where highs will mainly be in the 20s.
Snow showers will continue across the northern and central Rockies. The southern Rockies and West Coast will be dry and cool. Some clouds will move into California, ahead of a storm projected to bring more rain and mountain snow beginning Tuesday.
Focus: Next California Storm at Midweek
Heavy rain may result in mudflows and flash flooding, especially below Southern California burn scars, as the next storm affects the Golden State midweek. In Northern California, rain and mountain snow from the storm should not be heavy.
