Storms rumbled over the Southeast and the Northwest early Monday, while sunshine reigned from the Great Lakes to the Rockies.

In the Southeast, areas of low pressure will continue swirling along a stationary front that extends from the Carolinas to the Gulf of Mexico.

Deep moisture from the Gulf will combine with instability to produce light rain showers and possible isolated thunderstorms over the region. The heaviest amounts of precipitation were expected to develop over Alabama and Georgia.

In the West, a Pacific storm system will produce mixed precipitation over the Northwest. As the storm system advances eastward, rain showers and high elevation snowfall will persist across the Pacific Northwest and northern California, while widespread snow is expected to develop over the Northern Intermountains and Northern Rockies.

Snow totals are expected to range between 3 to 6 inches across the valleys and between 10 to 20 inches over the higher elevations. Gusty, southwest winds will accompany snow showers and will create periods of blowing and drifting snow.

The central part of the nation will see predominantly dry and fair conditions with warmer temperatures on Monday as high pressure begins to build over the Plains.

Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Sunday ranged from a low of 10 degrees at Pinedale, Wyo., to a high of 87 degrees at Okeechobee, Fla.
