The end of the weekend will bring a temporary break to the recent active weather in the East but more rain and mountain snow will sock the West.

The snow-capped Sierra will get more fresh powder to close out the weekend while more snow blasts the southern Cascades. A fresh storm bolting into northern California will also bring heavy rain to the coast and Interstate 5 corridor.

The snow will track into Idaho's Panhandle and the northern Rockies to close out the day. A few flurries are even possible for the Dakotas in the afternoon and evening.

While the morning starts out dry across the Lower Mississippi Valley, a weak upper wave will help generate afternoon scattered showers and a few rumbles of thunder. Tyler, Texas, Little Rock, Ark., Jackson, Miss., and Memphis, Tenn., are amongst the places that could squeak out an afternoon shower or storm.

The last bit of snow will traverse Upstate New York, northern Vermont and New Hampshire but the winds will subside for large stretches of the Mid-Atlantic. There will be a few gusts to 30 mph across New England as the storm pulls away into Canada.

The Plains, Midwest and Southeast will have a pleasant end to the weekend with plentiful sunshine.

Fur coats, gloves, scarfs and hats will be needed to stay warm in the northern Plains where highs will stay in the single digits and teens. The north wind will produce wind chills in the range of minus-10 to minus-20 degrees. Otherwise, much of the northern tier will be in the 20s, 30s and 40s.

The warmer 50s, 60s and 70s will rule the Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys, Southwest, southern Plains and Southeast.
