Weather Underground midday recap for Monday, March 30, 2015

Areas of wet weather continued for the North and East on Monday, while more wet weather approached the Pacific Northwest. A low pressure system in eastern Canada created a cold front that stretched down the East Coast and into the Gulf states. Cooler temperatures to the north allowed for snow showers to develop across Maine, with rain showers stretching across the New England states. The southern side of this cold front kicked up some scattered showers along the coasts of the Carolinas, but significant precipitation was not reporting with this system. As this system wrapped around to the west, it brought periods of heavy rainfall to the lower Mississippi River Valley and Gulf states. Heaviest rainfall was reported at Muscle Shoals, Alabama with a midday total of 1.09 inches of rain.

Meanwhile in the Great Lakes, a weak trough of low pressure produced scattered rain showers across Minnesota and Wisconsin, which advanced eastward toward the Great Lakes throughout the day.

Out West, a low pressure system slowly moved into British Columbia and created a strong cold front that approached the Pacific Northwest. This allowed for a few scattered showers to develop in British Columbia, but rain showers have not yet spread across Oregon and Washington.

Elsewhere across the nation, a broad ridge of high pressure dominated across the Western states and the Plains on Monday, which kept the region warm and dry. This created dangerous fire conditions due to warm, dry and breezy conditions across the central and southern Plains.
