A brief break in an active weather pattern

2:32 P.M. ET 11/25/2004


M. Ressler, Meteorologist, The Weather Channel





The windy cold front whips offshore this evening taking the late season warmth with it. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 30s even in downtown Boston, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington by shopping time Friday morning. After a mainly dry Friday and Saturday, a new cold front will bring the next round of rain to the region Saturday night and Sunday. Temperatures will be up to 6 degrees below average Friday (upper 20s northern Maine to 50s southern Virginia) but rebound to as much as 10 degrees above average by Sunday (40s Maine to 60s Tidewater Virginia).



A new cold front will sweep through the Plains Friday and the Midwest Saturday. Snow to the north and light rain to the south will increase from the Dakotas to Michigan on Friday. The winds will increase around the front on Saturday with some snow or rain changing to snow from Upper Michigan to eastern Iowa and northwest Illinois and rain, heavy at times, across lower Michigan and the Ohio Valley. The front and precipitation will quickly exit east of the Appalachians Saturday night and early Sunday. While most of the region will be dry on Sunday, snow will already begin to streak out across Nebraska and northern Kansas. Snow will continue over western Kansas Monday. In the coming week, the area from eastern Kansas to southern Michigan and northwest Ohio could see another wet snow event Tuesday into very early Thursday as a new Southwest storm tracks northeastward across the region.



The South is finally getting a dry break after a very wet and stormy week. Cold high pressure will settle over the Southeast tonight and Friday morning. Already frost and freeze advisories have been posted across south central Tennessee, eastern Mississippi, Alabama, the Florida panhandle, southeast Georgia and coastal South Carolina. The South will be dry on Friday, but a new cold front will bring showers and a few rumbles of thunder to the lower Mississippi Valley, Tennessee Valley, southern Appalachians and northern Gulf Coast States on Saturday. On Sunday, the front will stall out across the Deep South, but showers will be minimal, confined to western Texas and southern Florida. However, on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, another wet system will track across the South with snow early in the week for the southern high Plains and more rain for waterlogged parts of Texas and the Deep South.



Friday will bring showery snow to the northern and central Rockies and much cooler temperatures to the northern high Plains and eastern Colorado. A new storm will move from the Pacific Northwest into the Southwest this weekend with locally heavy snow for the central and southern Rockies and south-central Plains by Sunday as even colder air again dives southward. Denver could be in for a snowy Sunday. Las Vegas, Phoenix and Albuquerque could end the weekend on a showery note. Snow and rain will linger in the Southwest on Monday before the storm gradually exits on Tuesday. Each storm further assaults the Southwest drought. Yet another Pacific system will enter the Northwest Tuesday and Wednesday.
