The Nation's Weather for Monday, January 1, 2018

—————

NATIONAL SUMMARY

A bitter cold wave will stretch from the foot of the Rockies

to the Atlantic Seaboard today as dry arctic high pressure

sprawls over the nation's midsection. Temperatures will rise

no higher than about zero F in far northern New England and

in much of the northern Plains, while highs will be in the

20s from the mid-Atlantic to West Texas. Although dry

weather will dominate, snow showers will stream eastward off

the Great Lakes. Patchy freezing drizzle will make for

slippery spots in south-central and southwestern Texas as

cold rain dampens South Texas. Also, a cold front will

trigger showers as it slips southward over central Florida,

allowing warm weather to linger in the south. Elsewhere, dry

weather will stretch from the Rockies to the Pacific coast.

California and the Southwest will remain noticeably mild.
