Wet in the West and East

3:20 P.M. ET 12/9/2004


M. Ressler, Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



A warm front is pushing northward through the West, well ahead of a new storm still out over the Pacific. The focus for locally heavy rain will set up over western Washington and northwestern Oregon on Friday as snow levels rise to near 8000 feet. Flood watches are already in effect for northwestern Washington. Snow continues to target the northern and central Rockies although snow levels are on the rise in these areas as well. Favored northwest-facing mountain slopes in Colorado have picked up an additional 1 to 2 feet of snow. West to northwest winds are quite strong from the Rockies into the high Plains and this trend will continue through Saturday.


After dumping between 1 and 4 inches of rain on parts of the Deep South, the rain has rapidly shifted into the eastern Ohio Valley and the Mid-Atlantic States. Much of the Eastern Seaboard will remain wet on Friday. Snow will be limited to the northern Mississippi Valley and western Great Lakes on Friday as the weather pattern stays quite mild. As the storm exits Saturday via New England, colder air poised just north of the Canadian border could dip into northern New York and north New England and produce a significant wet snow event.
