A rainy, snowy start to November

9:08 A.M. ET 11/1/2004


Matthew Newman, Senior Meteorologist, The Weather Channel





November will begin on the nasty side for many across the Midwest as snow targets the High Plains and flooding rains take aim at the mid-Mississippi Valley. A slow-moving frontal system will dump locally heavy rainfall from the mid-Mississippi Valley into the Ohio Valley. Meanwhile, an upslope flow behind the cold front will result in snow across the central High Plains. Several inches of snow may accumulate across eastern Colorado and western Kansas. Highs will range from the 30s across the central High Plains to the mild 70s across the Ohio Valley.



Just as one storm system slides slowly eastward, a new storm will overspread the Northwest today with more rain and mountain snow. Snow will continue to pile up across the Southern Rockies where winds will also be quite gusty. In-between weather systems, high pressure will result in generally dry weather across the Great Basin and California. Winds around the high pressure system will blow offshore across Southern California where wind advisories are posted for the mountainous areas.



The forecast across the Southeast on the first day of November resembles that of a forecast more fit for a day in September. A ridge of high pressure will again result in afternoon temperatures some 10 to 15 degrees above average under generally partly cloudy skies. Meanwhile, a storm system will bring unsettled weather to points west of the Mississippi River. Strong storms and flooding rains may threaten parts of the eastern Texas and Oklahoma while snow will fall across West Texas and parts of the southern High Plains. In fact, several inches may pile up. This will combine with windy conditions to cause blowing and drifting. Highs across the region will range from the cooler 30s and 40s in West Texas to the balmy 80s along the Gulf Coast and throughout the Southeast.



November will kick off on a calm note across the Northeast as a storm system departs and is replaced by high pressure. Lighter winds will also be more widespread after a windy Sunday throughout the Great Lakes. Only a few showers may dampen last minute campaigning across Northern New England and the Upper Ohio Valley. Highs will range from the 50s across New England and the Great Lakes to the low and mid-60s across the Mid-Atlantic.
