Stormy Wednesday looms for Northeast

1:42 P.M. ET 11/30/2004


Sr. Meteorologist, The Weather Channel





Rain and wind (a high wind watch is posted for much of Pennsylvania) will sweep quickly across the Northeast tomorrow as a fairly intense storm center races from western New York to Maine. Locally heavy amounts of rain are likely in New England and perhaps Upstate New York. And while the precipitation could begin as snow in those areas, a changeover to rain would occur very quickly. Only far western and northern Maine appear to stand a chance of seeing predominately snow. By evening, the precipitation should be over except for some wind-driven snow showers or flurries on the back side of the system in Upstate New York and far northern New England. High temperatures are expected to hold in the 30s from the Adirondacks to northern Maine, ranging upward to the 60s in eastern Virginia.



A cold front with its attendant showers and thunderstorms will sweep quickly through the Deep South and mid-South overnight tonight, leaving most of the South under the influence of high pressure and dry weather tomorrow. A few morning showers may linger over the eastern Carolinas, and isolated showers could dart across northern Florida from time to time, but overall, sunshine will dominate the region. Gusty winds in the Southeast will diminish by sunset. The day will dawn quite cold west of the Mississippi with freeze warnings in effect for much of eastern Texas, northwest Louisiana and southern Arkansas. High temperatures are forecast to be generally near to somewhat below early December means, ranging from the 40s over much of Tennessee and the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles to the 80s over southern Florida.



Except for a few morning showers or snow flurries over eastern Michigan and eastern Ohio, and some scattered flurries near a quasi-stationary arctic boundary strung out from northeastern North Dakota to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, the Midwest and Plains should be dry tomorrow. Gusty winds in the Midwest are expected to diminish steadily through the day as a storm center races eastward into New England. Temperatures will near to a bit above seasonal means with highs ranging from the 20s in northeastern North Dakota and northern Minnesota to the 40s from the central Plains through the lower Midwest.



Chilly high pressure will continue to dominate the Interior West tomorrow with only spotty precipitation in the Northwest (mainly in the mountains) and over the northern Rockies. Freeze warnings are again posted for tonight for the deserts of southeast California and southwest Arizona. To the north, lows in the teens and single digits will be widespread across the Intermountain region. Highs tomorrow will range from the teens in some Rocky Mountain locations to the 60s in portions of Southern California and southwest Arizona.
