Nov. 23 While the Midwest digs out from a winter storm that dumped as much as a foot of snow on parts of the Midwest, the eastern United States is expected to see the coldest air of the season this week. Meanwhile, the U.S. West will see warmer-than-normal temps, reported the National Weather Service. In the Pacific Northwest, rain and mountain snow is expected early this week, while possibly heavy snow is possible mid-week for the Rockies and Plains states. Reports the Weather Channel: "A strong arctic high-pressure system will then move in behind this system allowing the first real blast of arctic air to surge into the U.S. The coldest air mass of the season to date is expected for the West and the Plains beginning Wednesday and lasting into the start of the weekend."
