Weather Underground Forecast for Monday, November 12, 2012.
A storm which brought heavy snow to the Northern Plains and Rockies last week will continue its trek eastward across the country on Monday. A cold front will push into the Appalachians and Great Lakes region bringing heavy rain with it. Some thunderstorms are possible ahead of and along the front. Very warm and humid air in the east will help to fuel these storms, and some could produce strong winds or large hail. Temperatures in the Northeast will remain quite warm for November, a relief to those still suffering from lingering power outages related to superstorm Sandy.
Behind the front, bitterly cold air continues to push through the nation, with high temperatures in some locations in the northern Plains expecting high temperatures in the single digits or teens once again on Monday. Clear skies will accompany the cold weather, but the low angle of the late season sun will do little to warm the region.
In the West, a Pacific storm will march into the Canadian waters bringing wet weather to Washington and Oregon. Rain will spread southward into northern California as well, but precipitation should remain limited to the northern counties.
Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Sunday have ranged from a morning low of -16 degrees at Cut Bank, Mont. to a high of 90 degrees at Zapata, Texas
