Active weather for parts of the country through the weekend thanks to 3 different systems which will produce rain and even snow.
The first system today affects the eastern third of the country with widespread rain and even some thunder as well. Things should diminish in IN and lower MI early today and then by this afternoon or evening in OH, eastern KY and TN, GA, and SC, and be present through the day today and tonight in New England, the Mid Atlantic, and parts of FL. Much of this activity should be done by Saturday with just a few linger showers in parts of New England.
The second system moves quickly into NE tonight and ends up off the New England coast by Sunday evening, but still will produce some heavy rain as well as snow on the northern side of it. Several inches of snow accumulation will be possible in SD tonight, southern MN and WI, northern IA on Saturday, southern lower MI Saturday night, and in parts of NY on Sunday.
The third and final system heads into MT on Saturday and then into ND on Sunday producing rain and snow as well. Accumulating snow is possible with this system as well in MT and ND on Sunday and maybe even into northwest MN on Sunday night.
