- The Washington Times - Sunday, April 5, 2009

A developing storm was heading out of the Plains and across the Mississippi Valley on Sunday, and was expected to produce heavy rain and thunderstorms in the Southeast as it moved through the Ohio Valley.

Heavy snow was expected to fall in the Central Plains and parts of the Upper Midwest, and the storm was expected to be on the verge of moving into southern New England by the end of the day.

On the West Coast, more dry weather was in store for the West Coast states and Great Basin. A mild to seasonably warm day was forecast for many areas of the state.

Cold air from the aforementioned storm was to pour southward through the Plains and to the Gulf Coast. This cold air was to greatly dampen temperatures through the Plains and most of the rest of the eastern half of the country aside from the eastern seaboard.

The Northeast was to rise into the 40s and 50s, while the Southeast was to see temperatures in the 60s, 70s, and some 80s. The Northern Plains were to rise into the 20s and 30s, while the Northwest was to see temperatures in the 50s and 60s.

Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Saturday ranged from a low of 3 degrees at Stanley, Idaho, to a high of 100 degrees at Hebbronville, Texas.
