An extensive area of high pressure remains in place across the southern U.S., effectively limiting clouds and precipitation across most of the country. Wintry conditions will be confined to the northern Rockies, and from the upper Great Lakes to northern New England. Dry westerly winds will provide the Midwest with favorable travel conditions and seasonable temperatures. A cold front will pass through the area on Sunday. Sub-normal temperatures are expected to return by Monday and continue through mid week. Medium range forecasts suggest that a more significant warming trend will begin next weekend and continue through the first week of December. Late autumn is typically a stormy time of the year, however this November is expected to close with little or no additional precipitation.
