Expect temperatures to be in the low 40s and even into the mid-30s during the morning hours. This cold air will also bring along frost advisories for colder, inland valleys.
High pressure will continue to build in the Midwest, bringing along a widespread area of warm temperatures. Most areas will experience high temperatures reaching into the 90s. A few states in the upper Midwest could experience spotty showers and thunderstorms through Friday.
Heavy rain will continue to impact the Pacific Northwest on Friday, especially in the central and eastern portions of Washington. Many regions in Washington, and even in northern Oregon, can expect anywhere from a half inch to an inch of rain. Elevated terrain, including the Cascade Range, can expect rain totals to exceed an inch, while afternoon thunderstorms will also be possible. Temperatures are expected to increase throughout much of the Southwest and into northern California through Friday and into the weekend.
