Jeanne departs and the tropics quiet down

9:01 P.M. ET 9/28/2004


Tom Moore, Senior Meteorologist, The Weather Channel





Remnants of former Hurricane Jeanne will race out to sea overnight so the deluge of rain along the East Coast will come to a quick end. On Wednesday, look for a scattering of showers in parts of the Mid-Atlantic region back to the Ohio Valley. In general, though, most of the Northeast will be dry with near-average temperatures. Highs will be in the 60s and 70s, north to south.



The Midwest and Plains will be mainly dry on Wednesday, although an upper-air disturbance may trigger a few showers in North Dakota while another system aloft does the same thing in the upper Ohio Valley. Overall, high pressure and seasonal temperatures will dominate the mid-section of the nation. Highs will be in the 60s and 70s, north to south. A significant cold front will sweep through the northern Plains and into the Midwest later in the week.



Much of the South will enjoy mostly sunny and dry weather on Wednesday. A broad, weak area of low pressure may produce some widely scattered showers over south Georgia and the Florida Peninsula, however. Temperatures will be close to average across most of the region. The good news is that there are no tropical systems on the horizon.



A trough of low pressure aloft will slide into the Southwest on Wednesday resulting in scattered showers and thunderstorms for the Intermountain West, with the precipitation likely focusing around the Four Corners area. Elsewhere in the West, dry weather should prevail. High temperatures will range from above average (70s and 80s) in the interior Northwest to somewhat below in the Southwest (80s and 90s in the low deserts).
