California Rain:

A substantial storm will finally bring days of rain to start the week across all of the state of California. This is especially great news because portions of the state is currently experiencing a drought. The Sierra Nevada will also receive feet of snow, something that has been scarce this winter.

January Thaw:

A brief round of warmer weather will finally work into the Eastern U.S. as the trough breaks down this week, but there are hopes for more periods of warmth in the future this January.

Stay tuned for this story.

Pair of Winter Storms:

A pair of winter storms will bring snow to portions of the country during the second half of this week. The first storm will bring snow to the northern and central Plains and into the Upper Midwest. Then areas just to the east of there will get their fair share of the snow from the second storm developing over the South by this weekend.

Stay tuned for this story.
