In the wake of the recent East Coast storm, no major storm systems are affecting the U.S. at this time. Unseasonably cold air is in place across the East, but a gradual warming trend will take hold and last through the weekend. The next storm on the horizon will begin to impact the Pacific Northwest on Sunday bringing wind, rain and mountain snow to the region.

We're facing a fairly quiet weather pattern moving into the holiday
weekend with no significant precipitation expected across much of the
nation. For the Great Lakes region, a weak clipper system moving across
the area could trigger some very light snow showers downwind of the lakes
on Friday morning, but should clear out by Friday afternoon. However,
another clipper moves in behind that one and could trigger more snow
showers on Saturday for at least the Northern Lakes region. In the
southern tier, onshore northeasterly flow could bring a few scattered
showers or thunderstorms to Florida's Atlantic coastline through the
weekend, while a relatively weak upper low spinning off the Southwest U.S.
coast could clip coastal Southern California with some light rain on

In the Pacific Northwest, small pieces of energy embedded in the overall
upper flow may bring some light rain or snow showers to favorable slopes
of the extreme Northern Cascades and Northern Rockies. By Saturday evening
though, a stronger upper level system begins to move towards Western
Canada which should increase the chances for more organized precipitation
across parts of the Pacific Northwest and Northern Rockies.
