Jeb Posted November 14, 2004 Report Share Posted November 14, 2004 Stalled storm brings more rain, snow to Southwest, southern Plains and Texas 1:45 P.M. ET 11/14/2004 Kevin Roth, Senior Meteorologist, The Weather Channel West A nearly-stalled storm system should plague parts of the Southwest, southern Plains and Texas with more rain and snow Monday. This system dropped in from the Pacific Saturday and may stick around into Wednesday. That should continue the rain, snow and some thunderstorms through the first part of the week. Some of the thunderstorms could occasionally be severe producing some hail and strong wind gusts, however, a large-scale outbreak of severe thunderstorms is not expected. The moisture is good news for the drought-stricken region. Temperatures should remain 5 to 15 degrees below average under the clouds and precipitation with highs holding in the 30s in the mountains and in the 40s and 50s in the lower elevations. Some light rain and snow showers are anticipated in the Pacific Northwest through the first part of the week. The remainder of the West should have pleasant weather through Wednesday. South A large ridge of high pressure should settle over the eastern Ohio Valley through Monday keeping skies mainly clear through the South. With clear skies and light winds temperatures should rapidly drop off over the Southeast this evening with overnight lows reaching the mid 20s to mid 30s. Frost advisories and freeze warnings have been issued for parts of the Southeast tonight. After a chilly start Monday temperatures should recover into the 50s and 60s during the day. An easterly flow around the high pressure system should keep Florida in and out of the clouds with passing showers through Monday. Gusty winds along the coast should keep the surf rough producing rip currents and beach erosion. Midwest A disturbance rolling out of the Rockies into the eastern Plains should bring some clouds and passing showers to southern Iowa, western Missouri and eastern Kansas Monday. Otherwise, the rest of the region is expected to be partly cloudy and mild. Much of the upcoming week should feature warmer than average temperatures, especially in the northern Plains, upper Midwest and northern Great Lakes. High temperatures could be in the upper 50s to near 60, which is 10 to 20 degrees above average for mid-November. Northeast Chilly air will flow out of Canada into the Northeast for the first half of the week. Afternoon highs should be mainly in the 30s and 40s through Wednesday, which is 5 to 15 degrees below average. Overnight lows are forecast to be in the 10s and 20s over much of the region. Readings may hold in the low to mid 30s in the big cities. Skies should be sunny to partly cloudy through Wednesday. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
