The eastern storm has several components. The heaviest of the rains have moved off the East Coast, but pockets of rain linger from the Great Lakes and Northeast to Florida. Wintry weather fringes the northern edge of the storm. Some snow is accumulating in parts of Wisconsin and northern Michigan. Snow and freezing rain will be on the increase along the Canadian border from northern New York to northern Maine and winter storm warnings are in place. By late Saturday, the northernmost sections of New York and Maine could pick up well over 1 foot of new snow. Caribou, Maine is one of the few places in the East with well above average snowfall for this point in the season. Into the first part of this evening, a strong upper-level disturbance will move across the still relatively mild air over eastern Kentucky, eastern Tennessee, northern Georgia, the western Carolinas, southwest Virginia and southern West Virginia. Scattered severe thunderstorms will continue to develop in this area with hail being the primary threat.


In the West, a plume of Pacific moisture ahead of an approaching cold front is dousing western Washington with rain. Flood watches remain in effect. Southerly winds are gusting to between 20 and 40 mph and occasionally higher along the immediate coast. Snow levels are very high at around 7000 feet in the Cascades. As the front heads inland tonight, showery rains will expand southward through Oregon and northern California and eastward into the northern Rockies. Snow levels will rapidly lower to 2000 feet in the Washington Cascades Saturday. Strong westerly winds will develop across Montana and Wyoming later today into Saturday. High wind warnings and watches are in effect for the northern half of Montana. South of the active weather, parts of California including the Bay Area, the Sacramento Valley and the San Joaquin Valley will see another round of dense fog Saturday morning.
