NATIONAL SUMMARY Snow showers will fly in the northern mid-Atlantic tomorrow morning before moving into New England by afternoon. Only an inch or two of snow is expected in most spots. Partial sunshine and seasonable temperatures will dominate the Midwest, while clouds and showers dampen the Southeast. A strengthening storm system along the Gulf Coast will cause soaking downpours to plague eastern Texas and Louisiana. Flash flooding can result in any locations that see the heaviest downpours, and residents living near streams and creeks should keep a close watch on water levels. Another storm will move into the northern Plains and bring snow showers and howling winds to portions of the Dakotas. Behind the storm, frigid air and gusty winds will charge southward from Canada into the northern Rockies and Pacific Northwest.
