Calmer weather conditions developed across the East on Tuesday as the cold front impacting the region pushed off the East Coast.

Wet weather activity in much of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast came to an end during the the early morning hours as the northern half of this disturbance pushed offshore into the Atlantic Ocean.

Meanwhile, the showers and thunderstorms continued along and ahead of the southern portion of this cold front in Florida and areas of southern Georgia. Behind the front, a few flurries developed across Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania during the afternoon, while a large ridge of high pressure dominated the rest of the region with generally dry conditions with a temperature moderation back to seasonal values.

In the Upper Midwest, a weak front with limited moisture reached across the Northern Plains and the Upper Great Lakes with a few light isolated snow showers.

In the West, a Pacific storm approached the Pacific Northwest Coast and kicked up light to moderate rain showers through the afternoon.
