  • The western portion of the country will see warm air develop over the next six weeks.
  • In the Northeast, spring won't arrive until April.
  • In the southeast, conditions are expected to bounce back and forth between winter and spring.
  • In the Great Plains and the Midwest, wintry conditions are expected to continue through March.
