Finally some movement!

Finally the sluggish storm over the Southwest is showing signs of movement. The system should actually move into central Texas during the day Wednesday taking its axis of heavy rain with it. Interstates 35 and 45 should be the corridors that see the heaviest rainfall tomorrow with 1 to 3 inches and localized flooding possible. Western Texas, western Oklahoma and New Mexico will not dry out totally, a few morning showers may linger there, but the heaviest rain does shift eastward. The slow eastward movement should continue Thursday with the focus of the heavier rainfall shifting to the lower Mississippi Valley. High pressure should dominate the Southeast and Florida with mostly sunny skies and warming temperatures. A few passing showers could interrupt the better weather over parts of eastern Florida Wednesday.



A cold front drops southeastward through the Midwest during the day Wednesday with a few scattered showers along it. The most concentrated rain should occur over the eastern Great Lakes and Ohio Valley. Temperatures will continue to run well-above November averages Wednesday with highs in the 50s along the Canadian border and in the 60s to near 70 over the remainder of the Midwest. The cold front stalls over the Ohio Valley Thursday continuing the threat of light shower activity. Temperatures are expected to remain well-above average on Thursday, even behind the cold front.



The Pacific Northwest gets a dry break between systems Wednesday aside from a few late day showers in extreme northwest Washington. The bulk of tomorrow’s system should be moving through southern Canada and the next storm is not expected to arrive until Thursday. Skies should remain partly to mostly cloudy with seasonal temperatures Wednesday. The remainder of the region should have pleasant weather with mostly sunny skies and temperatures above seasonal averages Wednesday and Thursday.



One more completely dry day is in store for the Northeast Wednesday as high pressure remains firmly in control. Skies should be sunny to partly cloudy with temperatures within a few degrees of average November readings. A weakening storm approaches from the west Thursday introducing more clouds and the chance of a few showers.
