Stormy weather targets north Pacific coast, South

2:12 P.M. ET 12/5/2004


Sr. Meteorologist, The Weather Channel




Although much of the West will experience chilly, unsettled conditions tomorrow--including a little snow over the mountains of Arizona and New Mexico--the stormiest weather will target the north Pacific coast. A potent storm expected to be centered just west of Oregon late tomorrow will hurl rain into areas from the Puget Sound to San Francisco. The worst of the weather, however, will come tomorrow night as gusty winds whip over Oregon and northern California, and torrential rains drench the northern part of the Golden State. Locally heavy downpours will extend northward through western Oregon, too. Heavy snow is forecast to develop in the Cascades of Oregon and northern California where a foot or more is not beyond the realm of possibility by Tuesday morning. Snow levels are expected to be around 4000 or 4500 feet.



A developing storm over the southern Plains on Monday will keep most of the South damp to start the workweek. Not only damp, but stormy, too, as the possibility of severe weather looms from the eastern parts of Oklahoma and Texas to the Mississippi Valley. A broad area of rain and showers will extend from Oklahoma and Texas eastward through northern Georgia into the Carolinas, but ironically, Florida and areas near the eastern Gulf Coast may see no precipitation at all. Meanwhile, the heaviest downpours seem likely to target areas of Oklahoma and northern Texas. Temperatures throughout the region, fed by warmth from the Gulf of Mexico, will be above average with highs ranging from the 60s to the 80s, north to south.



As a band of moisture pushes into the Northeast tomorrow in advance of a warm front stretching from the Ohio Valley to Virginia, areas of light rain and snow will develop. The snow (and maybe a little freezing rain or sleet... but not much) should be confined to the eastern two-thirds of New York state (north of New York City) and western New England. In those areas there should be enough residual subfreezing air left in the wake of a retreating cold air mass to foster some wintry precipitation. Overall, highs are expected to range from the upper teens in far northern Maine to the 30s in much of New York and New England to the 60s in southern Virginia.



Rain, generally light, will spread through much of the Midwest tomorrow as a storm system develops over the southern Plains. On the northern periphery of the precipitation, some light snow is possible over eastern North Dakota, northeastern South Dakota, much of Minnesota and far northwestern Wisconsin. A mixture of a little rain and snow may occur elsewhere in Wisconsin as well as over Michigan. Dry weather is expected over Nebraska and most of Kansas (except for rain in the southeast corner). Temperatures will be generally above average with highs ranging from the upper teens along the North Dakota-Canada border to the 60s in southern Missouri and the Ohio Valley.
