More rain will move from the South to the Midwest

Look for heavy rain over parts of the Southeast on Wednesday, most notably from Alabama to the southern Appalachians. Florida will remain hot and dry. Lighter amounts of rain are expected along a cold front sliding down through the Carolinas. Rain will also develop in Mississippi around a developing area of low pressure. Farther west, scattered showers underneath an upper-air low will dampen parts of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana. High temperatures will range from the upper 40s in parts of West Texas to the 80s in southeast Alabama, southern Georgia, southern South Carolina and Florida.



A cold front will push inland on Wednesday and stretch from the Sierra Nevada to Wyoming by late in the day. Look for rain and mountain snow from the northern half of California to Montana. Locally heavy snow may coat the mountains of central Idaho and the Bitterroot Range. Behind the front, gusty winds are likely from northern California across the northern half of the Great Basin. High temperatures will continue to run below seasonal averages across most of the region with highs ranging from the 20s and 30s in the northern Rockies to the 70s in parts of California and southwest Arizona.



Much of the Midwest will enjoy a dry Wednesday but a storm system moving up from the South will bring rain back into the region on Thursday. Most of this rain will be in eastern sections of the region. A Pacific cold front pushing through the Dakotas will keep much of the northern Plains cloudy, but any showers are expected to be inconsequential. High temperatures will mainly hold in the 40s and 50s, north to south.



Rain will exit the Northeast overnight and leave Wednesday as mainly windy and dry behind a cold front. High pressure will push clearing skies and diminishing winds eastward during the day, although gusty northwesterly winds will linger in New England. High temperatures will be near to slightly below early November averages, ranging from the upper 30s in far northern Maine to the 60s across most of Virginia.
