2:20 P.M. ET 11/28/2004


B. Bernard, Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



Winter storm and heavy snow warnings and watches, as well as snow advisories, remain widespread this afternoon from Utah eastward over the Rockies into much of Nebraska and Kansas, as well as portions of the Oklahoma and Texas Panhandles. Up to two feet of snow may bury portions of the Colorado Rockies. Substantial snow, up to 8 inches (locally more) is also expected over portions of the Great Plains, mainly from northeast Colorado eastward over the southern two-thirds of Nebraska. Travel will be particularly difficult over I-80 in the Cornhusker State. Denver, Colo., is likely to see several inches of snow through tomorrow, but no heavy amounts are expected.


Meanwhile, in the Northeast, a band of moderate to heavy rain (accompanied by gusty winds) is sweeping northeastward through New England and far eastern New York this afternoon. Flood watches and warnings are posted from eastern New York and portions of western New England southward to northern Delaware and northeastern Maryland. Almost 4 inches of rain inundated Mount Pocono, Pa., in the 30-hour period ending at 1 p.m. today.


In the West, high wind warnings and watches are in effect for much of Southern California for tonight and tomorrow as strong Santa Ana winds are forecast to develop. Gusts may reach as high as 70 to 80 mph.
