While the Northeast and Midwest dig out from Wednesday's winter storm, another blast of snow and cold will roar across parts of the central U.S. on Thursday.

Some lake-effect snow will whiten areas near the Great Lakes, but most of the remainder of the eastern U.S. will be dry but quite chilly. One exception will be along the Gulf Coast and in Florida, where showers are possible.

Intense cold will once again be the story in the Plains, with bitterly cold temperatures all the way from the Dakotas to Texas.

Snow is likely in parts of the Northwest, central Rockies and central Plains, while scattered showers will be welcomed in parched California.

Weather history for Feb. 6: In 1978, the infamous "Blizzard of '78" walloped the Northeast and New England, burying Boston in 27.5 inches snow. In 1994, a record high temperature of 78 degrees was set in Mobile, Ala.

In 2010, a blizzard dumped more than two feet of snow fell on Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia.
