The mild weather was welcome by many across the East yesterday with
highs in the 50s reaching as far north as Massachusetts. The most
notable change with this mild weather was the drastic rebound in
Georgia and the Carolinas following the chilly day on Friday. After
only climbing to 49 degrees on Friday, Augusta, Ga., hit 72 on
Saturday, a swing of over 20 degrees. While milder weather was also
the story across the northern Plains, below-normal temperatures were
to be found stretching from the Great Lakes down into Texas with rain
and snow falling along a cold front. College Station, Texas, received
0.81 of an inch of rain from this front with 4 inches of snow
accumulation near Folsum, N.M. Rain moved back into the West Coast,
stretching from Washington down into northern California. This
brought over an inch of rain to parts of the Washington Coast with
Quillayute, Wash., recording 2.37 inches on the day.

A storm pounded the region in 1994 as Ozark Beach, Mo., had 19 inches
of snow; 12 inches fell in Cape Girardeau, Mo., 7 inches fell in
Fayetteville, Ark., and Springfield, Mo., had 6 inches.
