Severe threat continues South

2:46 P.M. ET 12/6/2004


B. Bernard, Senior Meterologist, The Weather Channel



The threat of severe weather, including a few tornadoes, will continue to hang over areas from Texas and Oklahoma into the lower Ohio Valley through tonight. The greatest risk of nasty storms, however, will focus on northeastern Texas, southern Arkansas, northern Louisiana, far western Tennessee and northwestern Mississippi ahead of an eastward-sweeping cold front. Locally heavy showers will also splash down on the South and parts of the Midwest today and tonight, and flood watches remain posted for parts of Missouri, northeastern Arkansas, much of Tennessee, northern Mississippi and a good chunk of Alabama.


In parts of the West, heavy snow, not rain, will be the problem today and tonight. Winter storm warnings are in effect for northern California (above 4000 feet) and the northern Sierras for late today and through tomorrow. Snowfall in the Sierras could reach two feet above 6000 feet by Tuesday afternoon. Winter storm watches have been issued for the southern Sierras, and for southeastern Oregon, much of southern Idaho (except for the Snake River Valley), northwest Utah and a small portion of southwest Wyoming for tonight and tomorrow.


In the lower elevations of northwest California, several inches of rain are likely from late today through tomorrow morning as copious Pacific moisture is hurled inland.
