More storminess bound for West

1:48 P.M. ET 10/24/2004


Sr. Meteorologist, The Weather Channel




A Pacific front piling into Washington and Oregon tomorrow will signal the return of widespread storminess to the West. Wind, rain and mountain snow will blitz areas over and west of the Cascades Monday, but fan out to blanket much of the West on Tuesday. Heavy snow is likely in the Washington and Oregon Cascades tomorrow, and in the mountains of northern California and the Sierras on Tuesday. Snow levels in the Washington Cascades tomorrow are expected to be in the 3000- to 4000-foot range. Elsewhere in the West tomorrow, only scattered or widely scattered showers will bother areas from the Great Basin and Wyoming southward into parts of Arizona and New Mexico. Temperatures throughout the region are expected to continue to run at cooler-then-average levels.



Generally pleasant weather will prevail over the Southeast tomorrow, while an arc of scattered or widely scattered showers and thundershowers develops from the central Gulf Coast into northern Texas and extreme southern Oklahoma. The most widespread shower activity, however, is expected over West Texas as moisture from the eastern Pacific via northwest Mexico feeds into the area. High temperatures over the majority of the South are forecast to run noticeably above average, with readings in the 70s and 80s, north to south. The low 90s are expected in far south Texas.



Except for a chance of a few showers developing over the western reaches of South Dakota and Nebraska, the Great Plains and Midwest should enjoy fine autumn weather tomorrow. High pressure will dominate the region with temperatures near to somewhat above seasonal means. Maxima are forecast to range from the upper-40s near the Canadian border to the 70s from the lower Ohio Valley across southern Missouri into far southeast Kansas.



Sunshine will brighten much of New England tomorrow, while farther west, clouds and maybe a few sprinkles will dull the day over New York and Pennsylvania. A large storm swirling over the western Atlantic will continue to hurl heavy surf into areas from New Jersey southward (see Tropical Update), but significant windiness is unlikely. High temperatures will be near late October means, generally in the 50s and 60s, north to south.
