More snow for parts of New England

1:11 P.M. ET 12/26/2004


Sr. Meteorologist, The Weather Channel




Only blustery winds and flurries (mainly in New York state and New England) will remain in the Northeast tomorrow after a strong ocean storm brushes the area tonight. That storm is expected to dump an additional 3 to 6 inches of wind-driven snow on southeastern New England overnight, with perhaps as much as 4-8 inches of wet, gloppy stuff on Cape Cod and the islands. An inch or two is possible in New York City. Tomorrow, the only accumulating snow, maybe an inch or so, is expected in far eastern Maine. High temperatures are forecast to be below late December means, ranging from the teens in much of New York and northern New England to the 40s in southeastern and south-central Virginia.



A large upper-air storm centered just west of California will deliver rain and snow to the Golden State tomorrow. The heaviest rain--locally 2 to 4 inches in the mountains--will extend from northern California southward to Ventura County. In the mountains of northern California, heavy snow is likely, especially above 4000 feet where a foot or two could accumulate by late tomorrow. Snow levels in the Sierras, where modest amounts of snow are possible, should be around 5000 feet. Areas of light rain and mountain snow may reach into western Oregon. Elsewhere, spotty, light precipitation is possible in northwestern Arizona and the Intermountain West. High temperatures in 30s and 40s will be widespread, with the 50s and 60s more common in the lower elevations of California, Arizona and New Mexico.



High pressure will dominate the Midwest tomorrow with the center by evening parked over Ohio. Thus, precipitation will be sparse, limited to scattered flurries in the northern Plains and Upper Midwest. Meanwhile, high temperatures will range from below early winter norms in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky to above average seasonal means in the central Plains, Iowa and Missouri. Overall, readings will range from the teens near the Canadian border to the 50s in Kansas and southwestern Missouri.



Dry weather with plenty of sunshine will prevail in the South tomorrow. High pressure will dominate the region with maximum temperatures generally close to seasonal averages. Highs are forecast to range from the 40s in the Carolinas, Tennessee and northeastern Arkansas to the low 70s in far south Texas and far south Florida.
