Northeast - High pressure dominates the region the next two days keeping it dry, mainly sunny and chilly. Temperatures will be 5 to 15 degrees below average Wednesday and 5 to 10 degrees below average along the coast, but closer to average inland. High temperatures only reach the 30s and 40s in New York and New England and the 40s and 50s elsewhere Wednesday. Thursday highs should be in the 40s and 50s east of the Appalachian Mountains and in the 60s west of them. Freezing temperatures are likely across the entire region except southeast Virginia Wednesday morning and Thursday morning.

Midwest - An Alberta Clipper produces a band of moderate to heavy snow from the eastern Dakotas to northern Michigan through Wednesday night. Accumulations of 6 to 12 inches could produce power outages from central Minnesota to northern Michigan. Some spotty 12 to 15 inch snow totals are possible in northern Wisconsin and far northwest Michigan. Snow could tally 1 to 3 inches in the eastern Dakotas, north Minnesota and in the Twin Cities. The clipper also produces rain showers across southern South Dakota, northern Nebraska, and northern Iowa. It should be dry across the remainder of the region. High temperatures will be in the 30s and lower 40s north of the clipper's path. It will be warmer south of the clipper with highs in the 50s in the lower Great Lakes and Ohio Valley and the 60s in Iowa, Missouri, south Nebraska and Kansas.

South - A record cold air mass grips the region into Thursday morning. Temperatures are projected to be 5 to 15 degrees below average and more typical of late February or early March. Morning readings should be in the middle 20s to middle 30s from Arkansas and Tennessee to the Carolinas and the upper 30s to middle 40s in Oklahoma, much of Texas and along the Gulf Coast to northern Florida. Today's high temperatures will be in the 50s and 60s from the Mississippi Valley to the Carolinas and the 60s and 70s over the remainder of the region. Another chilly night is in store Wednesday night, but it should be a few degrees warmer than Wednesday morning. The warming trend begins Thursday.

West - A band of snow falls Wednesday morning from western Montana and north Idaho to southeast Montana and northeast Wyoming. During the afternoon warmer temperatures change some of the snow over to rain. Additional snowfall of an inch or less is expected in the lower elevations with 2 to 4 inches possible in the mountains. Rain and snow showers blossom during the late morning and afternoon hours in Colorado and northern New Mexico. A few rumbles of thunder could accompany the rain and snow showers. Snow could total 2 to 6 inches in the Colorado Rockies. Rain and high mountain snow is likely in western Washington and northwest Oregon. Snow in the Cascades could tally 4 to 8 inches. It will be dry across the remainder of the region. Chilly highs in the 30s and 40s extend from north Idaho and Montana through central Colorado. Milder 50s and 60s occur in the Northwest, south Idaho, Utah and eastern Colorado. Warm temperatures with afternoon highs in the 70s occur from California and south Nevada to New Mexico. It will be hot in the deserts with highs in the 80s and 90s.
