   MT AND LIFT NORTHEAST TOWARD THE CANADIAN PRAIRIE
   PROVINCES...BRINGING THE PACIFIC COLD FRONT ACROSS THE NORTHERN AND
   CENTRAL ROCKIES. FURTHER EAST...THE PLAINS UPPER RIDGE WILL ONLY
   SLOWLY DRIFT TOWARD THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER AS AN EAST COAST UPPER
   TROUGH/DEVELOPING UPPER LOW BLOCKS THE EASTWARD PROGRESSION OF THIS
   FEATURE. A SURFACE LOW OVER WESTERN NY WILL DEVELOP EAST/SOUTHEAST
   TOWARD THE MID-ATLANTIC WHILE A WEAK NOR'EASTER IMPACTS NEW ENGLAND.
