Weather Underground Forecast for Saturday, Nov. 02, 2013.

A cold frontal boundary will move over the Pacific Northwest on Saturday, while a ridge of high pressure will build over the central U.S.

A cold front is expected to usher wet weather into the Pacific Northwest on Saturday, while heavy snow will be possible in the Cascades throughout the day. Rain is expected to stretch from Washington to northern California. The Southwest will avoid wet weather, and can expect warm, dry conditions on Saturday.

A stationary front will push across the Intermountain West on Saturday, providing rainy weather to Idaho, Montana, Utah and Wyoming. High elevation snow will also be possible in the Rockies as the stationary front inches over the region. Meanwhile, a ridge of high pressure is expected to build just to the east of the Rocky Mountains, as cool, dry conditions can be expected in the northern Plains, and warm, muggy conditions can be expected along the southern Plains. Parts of the upper Midwest may experience spotty showers and snow showers throughout the day as a low pressure system lingers along the U.S. Canada border.

In the eastern third of the country, a cold front will stretch from the Gulf Coast to the Northeast, as wet weather will push across the Ohio Valley, the central and northern Appalachians and into the Northeast. Thunderstorms will also be possible along the Southeast coast as a result of this cold front.

Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Friday have ranged from a morning low of 14 degrees at Wolf Creek Pass, Colo. to a high of 89 degrees at Edinburg, Texas
