Flooding rains possible from Ivan while Hurricane Jeanne eyes Florida

9:11 P.M. ET 9/23/2004


Tom Moore, Senior Meteorologist, The Weather Channel




Remnants of Tropical Storm Ivan may produce locally torrential flooding rains into parts of Texas and Louisisna over the next couple of days. Meanwhile, Hurricane Jeanne has started on a westward track that could bring it into the northern Bahamas Saturday and into the Florida Peninsula as early as Sunday. The exact path and intensity of Jeanne at landfall is still uncertain but those along the Atlantic Coast of Florida and points inland should keep close track of Jeanne on TWC and weather.com and take necessary precautions.



An area of low pressure will produce some rain over parts of the Upper Midwest into Friday. A cold front associated with the low will slide eastward through Michigan, the mid-Mississippi Valley and the Ohio Valley with scattered showers on Friday and Saturday. Behind the front, the weekend will be gorgeous with temperatures as much as 5 to 10 degrees above average from the Dakotas to Upper Michigan. A new cold front will bring a few showers and thunderstorms to northern Minnesota, the Dakotas, Nebraska and western Kansas by early next week.



After a pleasant Friday, a cold front will move through the Northeast on Saturday with only a slight risk of showers. High temperatues will range from near average along the Eastern Seaboard to as much as 15 degrees above average across Upstate New York. Hurricane Jeanne could affect the Eastern Seaboard in the coming week so stay tuned.



After an active week, the West will be relatively tranquil through the weekend. An upper-level disturbance will enhance showers and thunderstorms over New Mexico, easternmost Arizona and Colorado. By Saturday, the warm offshore flow over California will weaken and the marine layer will return. A new cold front and Canadian high pressure will nose down into Montana later Sunday and then continue to slide southward along and east of the Rockies on Monday. Until then, temperatures will be 5 to 15 degrees above average from parts of California, through the Pacific Northwest and Great Basin, into Montana.
