REST OF THE NATION:

Upper-level divergence from a jet streak and frontogenesis along the US/CANADA border are causing precipitation to fall over the Pacific Northwest.  A surface low is beginning to form over north-central MT at this time. This quick moving disturbance will be progressing southeast towards the Dakotas and Central Plains by tomorrow afternoon.  Winter storm advisories and a winter storm watch have already been issued for central and eastern NE, as well as extreme western IA.
