More late-season frigid air is seeping into the Northern Tier for Sunday, keeping a few snow showers falling across the upper Great Lakes as well. Highs will range from the upper single digits to the middle teens from the Dakotas to Minneapolis, with Chicago reaching the 20s. Farther south through the Mid-Mississippi Valley and into the Southern Plains, partly sunny skies will be the rule with highs ranging from the upper 30s in St. Louis to the lower 70s in Dallas-Ft. Worth.
Along the East, scattered rain showers will fall from Cincinnati to Boston. Northward into Upstate New York and Interior New England, a wintry mix, as well as just plain snow, will blanket parts of West Virginia, central Pennsylvania, and Vermont.
Farther south into the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast, partly sunny skies will dominate with highs ranging from the upper 50s to lower 70s from Washington, D.C., to Atlanta. Any showers chances will be limited to the Gulf Coast region, stretching from Houston to central Florida.
More rain and mountain snow will move over the West Sunday. A mixed bag of snow and rain will fall across Seattle, with just snow falling in the Interior Northwest and also in the higher elevations of the Great Basin and Rockies. Some snow showers may also spread as far east as the western High Plains by afternoon.
Northern California will be mostly sunny and mild with highs in the 50s and 60s, with warmer temperatures in Los Angeles and Phoenix, where highs will hit the 70s and 80s, respectively.
