Western rain, wind and snow

8:35 A.M. ET 10/25/2004


Matthew Newan, Senior Meteorologist, The Weather Channel




A potent storm system will push inland across the Pacific Northwest today with another round of rain, wind and mountain snow across and west of the Cascades. The storm will spread across much of the West on Tuesday, with more mountain snow and valley rain. Heavy snow is likely in the Washington and Oregon Cascades today and in the mountains of northern California and the Sierras on Tuesday. Snow levels in the Washington Cascades are expected to be in the 3000- to 4000-foot range. Elsewhere in West today, 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. Expect the unsettled weather to reach Southern California by midweek.



The tail end of frontal boundary will combine with moisture streaming in from the tropics to bring a threat of showers and storms from Texas to the lower Mississippi Valley today. Meanwhile, generally sunny skies will prevail across the Southeast. Highs will run above late October averages due to an upper-level high pressure ridge over the region.



The same ridge keeping the South warm will also extend its reach northward across the Midwest today, resulting in dry and mild conditions. A week disturbance may kick off a few showers across the U.P. of Michigan and across the northern High Plains. Highs will range from the 50s across much of the northern Plains and Upper Midwest to well into the 70s across the mid-Mississippi and Ohio Valleys.



Drier weather should be in store for the Northeast today as a northwest flow scours out some of the low-level moisture that has plagued coastal areas. Milder readings will also be felt as a result. Highs will range from the 50s across much of the region to the 60s along the Mid-Atlantic coast and in Virginia... fairly common for this time of the year. Dry weather should prevail through midweek.
