Few worries tonight...more concerns Sunday into Monday

3:30 P.M. ET 2/26/2005


Jonathan Erdman, Sr. Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



No widespread areas of hazardous weather are expected this evening across the country. However, a few areas bear watching on a local level. Winter storm watches have been posted from the Arrowhead of Minnesota into northern Wisconsin and parts of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. As a frontal system sweeps in from Canada, snow will overspread northern Minnesota into northern Wisconsin late tonight. In the extreme, over 6 inches of snow may accumulate by late Sunday/early Monday in the watch areas, particularly near the Lake Superior shorelines, where some enhanced snowfall rates may occur. Light lake-effect snow should continue through the evening to the lee of Lake Ontario from the Tug Hill Plateau into the Mohawk Valley and Catskills of New York State. Light accumulations, in the 2-4 inch range, are possible in these broad lake-effect snow zones through the night. Thundershowers dotting a good part of the Desert Southwest, including California, should die down by late evening. A few of the more vigorous thunderstorms may deposit small hail, in addition to frequent lightning. Low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico will skirt eastward toward north Florida Sunday afternoon. Thunderstorms, a few containing damaging winds and even a tornado or two, are expected to erupt over much of the Florida Peninsula Sunday afternoon and evening. This low pressure system will ride up the Eastern Seaboard Monday, bringing strong east winds to the I-95 corridor, and significant snow to the Northeast interior, namely, the Appalachians and norothern New England. Some snow may fall in the I-95 corridor Monday, before potentially changing to rain. Signficant snow may linger into Tuesday not only in the aforementioned interior sections of the Northeast, but also in parts of the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes. Strong winds in the Appalachians and western Great Lakes may produce areas of blowing snow and reduced visibilities late Monday into Tuesday.
