Wet weather Southern California, south-central U. S.

2:59 P.M. ET 12/5/2004


Buzz Bernard, Meterologist, The Weather Channel



Rain, with imbedded heavier showers, is dampening coastal Southern California today while a separate area of precipitation, including isolated downpours, is moving through the South as well as portions of the Plains and Midwest.


In Southern California, the heaviest rain, perhaps up to an inch, should be confined to areas near the coast south of Point Conception as an upper-air disturbance drops southeastward offshore. Up to 8 inches of snow could coat the coastal mountains, especially in San Diego County, above 5000 feet.


As moisture from the California system works into the Southwest overnight, snow is expected to develop over the mountains of southeast Arizona. A winter storm watch has been issued for that area with up to a foot of snowfall expected above 7000 feet.


Elsewhere in the West, a band of light to moderate snow (1 to 3 inches) is pushing from extreme eastern Washington through northern Idaho into the Bitterroots.


Meanwhile, moisture from the Gulf of Mexico is invading the south-central U. S., and rain is spreading eastward from Arkansas and Louisiana through Tennessee and Alabama this afternoon. The dampness is also working northward into eastern Nebraska and southern Iowa. The heaviest rainfall overnight (maybe up to an inch) is expected to target parts of Tennessee, northern Alabama and northern Georgia.
