Weather Underground Forecast for Friday, April 06, 2012.
Severe weather will taper off across the Southeast on Friday, as a low pressure system and associated frontal boundaries move eastward and offshore. The system will linger along the coast from Florida through the Carolinas, kicking up a few scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some of these storms may turn severe with strong winds and large hail. Rainfall totals will range from 1 to 2 inches, with over 2 inches likely in areas of severe storm development.
Behind this system in the West, a low pressure system continues making its way over the Rockies and into the Plains. This will support additional rain and snow showers across the Northern Rockies. Parts of western Montana may see up to 8 inches of new snow by Friday evening. Just to the east, a few rain showers will move into the Northern High Plains. Ahead of this system, warm air building in from the south will allow for temperatures to remain 15 to 20 degrees above seasonable across the Plains. Expect highs to range in the 60s across the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest. However, behind the low pressure system and associated cold front, the Pacific Northwest, Intermountain West, and Great Basin will range from 10 to 15 degrees below seasonable due to cool air pouring in from the north. Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Thursday have ranged from a morning low of 7 degrees at Stanley, Idaho to a high of 93 degrees at Falfurrias, Texas
