Sunshine from coast to coast

5:00 A.M. ET 11/6/2004


Tim Ballisty, Meteorologist, The Weather Channel





The winds have diminished throughout the Mid-Atlantic and New England during the overnight hours but they will become rather feisty again today. Winds will be out of the west and southwest across the majority of the region at 20 to 30 mph.


After a day full of blowing snow, low visibility, and accumulations of 6 to 12 inches in northern Maine, a new upper-level impulse will trigger scattered rain and snow showers along the US/Canadian border. Outside of northern New England, the majority of the region will deal with a good bit of sunshine mixed with a few clouds while temperatures will jump to the upper 50s and lower 60s. During the day on Sunday and leading into early Monday, a cold front will sweep through the Northeast with some scattered showers confined to Upstate New York and northern New England. A noticeable change in temperature will be felt as daytime highs from Sunday to Monday will drop about 10 to 15 degrees.



The South will be dry and mild through the weekend. After quite a chilly start to the day, with plenty of sunshine, temperatures today will rebound into the 60s and 70s with low 80s southernmost portions of Texas and Florida. These high temperatures will range from near average over the Southeast to as much as 5 to 10 degrees above average across northern Texas, Oklahoma and northern Arkansas. This will be an absolutely beautiful day to go out and tailgate and enjoy the college football games.



Look for a very warm Saturday over the Plains and Mississippi Valley as temperatures warm to 10 to 20 degrees above average. The Midwest will be dry during the first half of the weekend and winds will be gusty from the eastern Dakotas to the Great Lakes. The cold front will move rapidly through the Midwest Sunday cooling things off and generating strong northwest winds over the northern Mississippi Valley and Great Lakes and bringing possibly significant lake-effect snow to northern Michigan.



A lumbering area of low pressure system off the California coast will swing into Southern California tomorrow and then move from the Southwest to the Four Corners' by Tuesday. As was the case of Friday, most showers will remain offshore again today, but Los Angeles and San Diego could see increasing showers and thunderstorms tonight and Sunday. Then showers, scattered thunderstorms and some high mountain snow will push through the Desert Southwest and into the central and southern Rockies during the first part of the week. Meanwhile, a front draped from the southern parts of Alberta and British Columbia to off the Northwest Coast will cause a few showers to clip western and northern Washington through Monday.


I will not post anything about the tropics, as there are no tropical systems in any ocean basin.
