week 1- A shift in the E Pacific jet should bring a change to weaker frontal passages and warmer temperatures on the continent, except for the East Coast that should look for colder temperatures.

West Coast- Look for the jet to move into PNW and possibly N CA for the whole week.

Mountain/High Plains- Weak frontal passages and seasonal temperatures should dominate for the week with high-pressure building over the southern mountains and High Plains

Mid-Continent -High-pressure over the southern High Plains should spread to the lower Mississippi Valley by the end of the week. Look for frontal passages from the Dakotas to the Central states.

East Coast-Look for a cold trough to arise after the 4th bringing intermittent fronts into the Mid Atlantic coast at the end of the week

week 2- Look for a continuation of the zonal patterns from last week with more moisture into the PNW, N CA and the Northeast. The high-pressure in the west and the trough over the East Coast should fade and give way to zonal flow across the northern tier of states.

West Coast- Watch for moderate fronts into the PNW, possibly N CA, early in the week.

Mountain/High Plains - Moderate fronts with rain to the north at midweek.

Mid-Continent- Temperate conditions to the south, with storm center in the Ohio Valley early in the week.

East Coast- Expect wet conditions in the Northeast early and late.
