Stormy South and Southwest, Snowy Mid-Atlantic to southern New England

7:19 P.M. ET 2/23/2005


James Wilson, Sr. Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



A wavy front and strong winds aloft will combine with deep moisture off the Gulf of Mexico to keep showery and thundery weather along the I-10 corridor from Jacksonville, Florida to San Antonio, Texas. Locally heavy rain is possible in Texas as the focus of moisture and strong winds aims at the Lone Star State.


Low pressure will develop on the wavy front in the deep South and race toward the Carolinas on Thursday. A high pressure area to the north over Canada and New England will feed in plenty of cold air to bring a significant snowstorm for the Virginias to eastern Pennsylvania to New Jersey to New York to Long Island to southern New England including the Cape and Islands. Snowfall amounts will range from 4 to 10 inches with the Mid-Atlantic to eastern Pennsylvania to southern New England having the the highest amounts. Get the shovel and snow plow ready.


Meanwhile, the Southwest storm is very slow to move. This will offer another round of showers and thunderstorms for the lower elevations of Arizona to New Mexico with locally heavy rainfall possible. In the higher mountains there will be heavy snowfall with locally 6" or more with up to a foot of snow in the central to northern mountains of New Mexico, especially the ski resort areas.
