Wednesday will be one of the nicest weather days of the year so far, with mild to warm temperatures nearly coast to coast and mostly clear skies.

Northern Plains: The only significant rain on Wednesday will be across portions of eastern Montana and North Dakota, where some afternoon showers are possible.

Central U.S.: Dry, windy conditions will lead to an elevated threat for wildfires in the central Plains.

West: The Southwest and West Coast will actually be on the hot side Wednesday, as temperatures top out in the 80s and 90s. Cooler air and some clouds will keep temperatures down in the Pacific Northwest and Northern Rockies.

East, South: Mostly sunny skies will allow temperatures to warm into the 60s and 70s for most areas, though a few spots in the Ohio Valley and Northeast will remain in the cooler 40s and 50s. Some light sprinkles and showers are possible in the Southeast.

Weather history for April 9: In 1947, tornadoes ripped through the southern Plains, killing 169 people, including 101 in Woodward, Okla. In 1985, a surprise snowstorm dumped several inches of snow in parts of West Virginia and Pennsylvania.

In 1990, a record high temperature of 77 degrees was set in International Falls, Minn. In 2003, the temperature dipped to a record low of 10 degrees in Madison, Wis.
