Frances' Departs, Watching Ivan

Alan Rios, Meteorologist, The Weather Channel






We finally should hear the last from Frances Thursday as the system becomes extratropical (non-tropical) and, dragging a cold front through the Northeast, scoots into Quebec. Heavy rain will continue to dog much of New York and New England through Thursday, but should diminish in intensity toward evening. Elsewhere, scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will prevail. On Friday, good news: vastly improved or improving weather will blanket the region.



Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to parade across storm-weary Florida Thursday. A few showers may linger in the waterlogged Appalachians, but the remainder of the South will enjoy pleasant conditions as Frances recedes into grim-memory status. High temperatures will be near seasonal levels with readings in the 80s. Along the Gulf Coast and interior of the Florida Peninsula, expect highs in the 90's.



Except for a handful of morning showers in eastern Ohio and eastern Kentucky, dry weather with a plethora of sunshine will grace the Midwest and Great Plains tomorrow. A ridge of high pressure will dominate the Midwest while a moisture-deprived trough of low pressure pushes into the northern Plains. High temperatures are expected to range from slightly below average in the upper Ohio Valley to well above seasonal means on the Plains. Maxima in the 70s will be widespread in the Midwest while readings in the 90s are expected to bake western Nebraska and western Kansas.



Except for a stray shower here and there in western Washington, Thursday will be another dry day throughout the West. High temperatures are forecast to range from near to well above average with largest positive departures over the Great Basin, eastern Montana, Wyoming and Colorado. High temperatures in the lower elevations should range from the 60s in western Washington to the 90s in the Sacramento Valley and parts of the Great Basin to over 100 in the San Joaquin Valley and deserts of the Southwest.
