HardwareA cold front from the eastern Pacific will bring a chance of rain and high-elevation snow to the Pacific Northwest and northern California. Coastal areas should get the heaviest concentration of precipitation that is expected to extend down to the Bay Area throughout the day. Showers are not expected in Southern California, but the front will mean increased cloudiness and cooler temperatures in the region.

Meanwhile, drier and warmer weather is expected across the central Great Basin due to high pressure.

In the East, a low pressure system will produce more showery weather as it moves eastward into the mid-Mississippi valley. Gulf moisture will lift northward and trigger light to moderate rain showers with periods of heavy rainfall along fronts that extend through the lower Mississippi valley and across the Ohio valley. Thunderstorms may accompany rainfall developing from Louisiana through Tennessee. Precipitation will spread into the Southeast during the afternoon.

To the north, a cold front associated with a low pressure system in southern Canada will drop daytime temperatures as it swings through the Great Lakes.

Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Wednesday ranged from a low of minus 2 degrees at Lake Yellowstone, Wyo., to a high of 88 degrees at McAllen, Texas
