NATIONAL SUMMARY A chilly wind over the warm Great Lakes will allow lake-effect snow bands to persist downwind of the Great Lakes tomorrow. Whiteout conditions and treacherous travel will remain a concern. Most areas along the Atlantic Seaboard and across the Southeast can expect dry but chilly conditions. Moist air off the Atlantic could trigger a few showers in South Florida. Meanwhile, a swath of accumulating snow will expand from the Dakotas to Wisconsin and Illinois, potentially causing slick travel across the region. The West will remain unsettled with bouts of rain, some heavy, expected from western Washington to central California. Snow will bury most inland areas from the Washington and Oregon Cascades to the Rockies. Dry weather will hold from Southern California to New Mexico.
