- Steadfast dome of frigid Arctic air to remain entrenched across central U.S. and continue expanding south.
- Winter storms to wreak havoc from coast-to-coast not only going into this weekend, but also into next week.
- Series of winter storms to result in heavy snow accumulations from the Northwest to the Midwest this weekend.

Today, periods of snow will blanket portions of the Northwest, the Intermountain West, and Midwest. The heaviest snowfall is anticipated in the Cascades, Tetons, and Colorado Rockies with accumulations over a foot possible. Totals of 3 to 6 inches in parts of the Northwest and central Plains could lead to hazardous travel, leading to Winter Weather Advisories and Winter Storm Warnings in these areas.
By Saturday, a Pacific storm system slamming into the Pacific Northwest generates heavy snow and ice accumulations from Portland to Seattle.
Periods of heavy snow are likely in the Sierra Nevada, Great Basin, and Intermountain West leading to hazardous travel conditions by both ground and air.
Meanwhile in the northern Mid-Atlantic, a wintry mix of snow/sleet/freezing rain will bring potentially treacherous travel conditions Saturday afternoon. Ice accumulations on the order of a tenth to as much as a quarter inch of ice are possible through Saturday evening.
