A strong coastal storm off the East Coast was expected to bring heavy rain and light snow to the Northeast on Tuesday.
Many areas away from the coast could see snowfall amounts of 3 to 4 inches, while regions prone to lake effect snow could see substantially more snow.
The same system also was expected to bring yet another round of cold air.
Eastern portions of the Midwest were expected to see below normal temperatures and a chance of snow showers Tuesday.
Above normal temperatures and clear skies were expected to last through the middle of the week along the West Coast.
Mostly clear skies and moderate temperatures were forecast for the Southeast.
Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Monday ranged from a low of -3 degrees in West Yellowstone, Mont. to a high of 90 degrees in Los Alamitos, Calif.
