Wet weather enters Northwest

4:54 A.M. ET 2/4/2005


Chris Dolce, Meteorologist, The Weather Channel




Low pressure will enter the Northwest on Friday bringing rain to the Seattle and Portland areas. Snow levels in the Cascades will be lowering to around 4000 feet during the day. Meanwhile, an upper level system will bring some rain to portions of southern New Mexico and southeastern Arizona with some snow in the higher elevations. Expect high temperatures in most places to be within 5 to 10 degrees of their seasonal averages except along the northern front range of the Rockies where temperatures will reach levels of 10 to 25 degrees above average.



The system that brought wintry precipitation to eastern portions of the Northeast overnight will pull away allowing the Northeast to see dry and mainly sunny conditions through the weekend. Snowfall amounts through early Friday morning were in the 1 to 5 inch range from central Connecticutt to southern New Hampshire. High temperatures will stay in the 30s and 40s with 50s further south through the weekend which translates into temperatures around 5 to 10 degrees above average on Saturday and Sunday.



The storm that brought precipitation to the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida on Thursday has now departed and the entire region can expect to see dry conditions on Friday. Temperatures will be on the rebound for places such as Charlotte, Atlanta, and Birmingham with highs reaching the 50s in all of these locations on Friday. The South as a whole will see temperatures generally in the 50s and 60s except in the southern Appalachians and eastern North Carolina where highs in the 40s are expected.



Many record highs were reached in the Upper Midwest on Thursday. Minneapolis topped out at 50 degrees which was 1 degree away from their record. The mild conditions will persist again on Friday as high temperatures reach levels about 10 to 30 degrees above average with more record highs possible. Colder temperatures will work their way slowly across the region from west to east as we look ahead to late weekend and into early next week. The entire region will stay precipitation free on Friday.
