The nation's weather
By WEATHER UNDERGROUNDFor The Associated Press
The two systems will combine to produce bouts of heavy rain across the East Coast from the Carolinas through southern New England on Sunday. Some areas may see up to 3 inches of heavy rainfall, with flooding a concern for some coastal regions. There is a slight chance of severe weather development in association with this system. Cooler temperatures to the north will allow for snow and freezing rain showers in the far Northeast.
Behind this system, a weak low pressure system moving through the Midwest may produce light rain showers, with a chance of light snow over the Great Lakes. Significant precipitation is not anticipated.
Further west, a high pressure dominates the Southwest and continues pushing moisture offshore over the West Coast. This system will yield sunny skies and warm temperatures, with hot conditions persisting in the interior deserts. Expect near record breaking high temperature to continue with highs reaching into the lower 100s.
Temperatures in the lower 48 states ranged Saturday from a morning low of 21 degrees at Tomahawk, Wis., to a high of 99 degrees at Palm Springs, Calif.
