Heavy snow targets Northern New England

2:52 A.M. ET 2/10/2005


Matthew Newman, Senior Meteorologist, The Weather Channel




Low pressure rapidly deepening along the New England coastline will deliver heavy snow and wind to Northern New England. Total accumulations across the region will top a foot in some spots, especially across northern Vermont, northern New Hampshire and across Maine. Northwesterly winds will also increase in the wake of the storm across Southern New England. These northwesterly winds will also usher in some colder air. Enough cold air will work in behind the storm to change to rain to snow across Southern New England where minor accumulations (a few inches) are possible. Snow showers will continue across the interior and along the Appalachians. Part of West Virginia could pick up in excess of 4-inches. Temperatures will fall through the 30s near the coast while interior areas never climb out of the 20s.



Much colder air will invade the region after a few days of above-average warmth as gusty northwesterly winds blow through the Southeast. Snow will even fall along the southern Appalachians where a few inches may pile up across the higher elevations. Meanwhile, drier weather will overspread most the region with only a few showers possible across central and southern Florida and along the Rio Grande Valley. Highs will range from the 50s and 60s across the Southern Plains to the 40s across the Carolinas and Georgia.



Other than some light snow across the Upper Midwest and across the Ohio Valley, most of the region will be in for a dry and generally sunny day. Warm winds will actually send temperatures across the High Plains above average while much colder winds keep the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley regions below average. Highs will range from the 60s across the High Plains to the 20s and 30s from the Great Lakes to the Ohio Valley.



Moisture will be on the increase across the Southwest today in the form of a few showers as an upper-level low pressure system slides in. This system is rich with subtropical moisture because it originated at low latitudes in the Pacific. This will mean potential flooding from Southern California to the Desert Southwest and heavy mountain snow through Saturday. The San Juan Mountains of Colorado could pick up significant snow. Meanwhile, most of the region will enjoy dry weather today with seasonal temperatures. Highs will range from the 50s across the Pacific Northwest to the 70s across Southern California and the Southwest.
