NATIONAL SUMMARY                   
 
-A cold front sweeping across the East brought big changes to the 
region yesterday. Despite a mild start, colder air moved over the 
region as the front tracked eastward throughout the day, reaching the 
coast by the evening hours. Temperatures dropped quickly after the 
front passed, with Scranton, Pa., having the temperature drop off 20 
degrees in just one hour. Not only did this front result in a big 
temperature swing, but also heavy rain. Rainfall amounts totaled over 
an inch from the Carolinas to New England, resulting in some flooding 
in Vermont. Snow and sleet managed to mix in with the rain on the 
back end of the system in the Northeast with a time of steady snow 
over portions of western Pennsylvania and New York. This resulted in 
some accumulations, mainly on grassy surfaces. The core of the cold 
air was centered over the Great Lakes, setting multiple record lows 
in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Dry weather was the story across the 
Plains with temperatures reaching the 60s from Texas to Wyoming. Dry 
weather was also seen over the West with the exception of a few 
showers over the northern Rockies.
