More snow for southern New England

8:47 A.M. ET 1/26/2005


Matthew Newman, Sr. Meteorologist, The Weather Channel




A fast-moving Alberta Clipper racing through the Northeast will lay down a swath of 3 to 6 inches of snow across southern New England. Local amounts of more than six inches are possible, especially across eastern Massachusetts and Cape Cod where the snow will linger into early Thursday. Winds will also increase as the storm deepens off of the New England coastline. This will cause blowing and drifting of the snow and may cause near-blizzard conditions. Meanwhile, a cold high pressure system will be building in behind the storm and this will send temperatures tumbling. Highs today will range from the single digits across far northern New England to the 50s across southern and central Virginia. Highs on Thursday will range from the single digits across much of New York state and northern New England to the 30s across southern Virginia.



High pressure sliding southward out of Canada in the wake of yesterday's Alberta Clipper will send temperatures downward in the Plains and Midwest today, and produce some lake-effect snow. In fact, expect temperatures to fall throughout the day across the northern Plains, Upper Midwest and Great Lakes. Temperatures this afternoon will range from the single digits in northeast North Dakota to the 40s across the central High Plains and the mid-Mississippi and Ohio Valleys.



The warming trend will continue into today across the South with highs expected to top out around 10 to 15 degrees above seasonal norms in many areas. The region will remain dry for the most part with only a few showers possible across the southern Appalachians and Carolinas. Highs will range from near 80 along the Texas Gulf Coast to the 60s across the Carolinas and northern Georgia.



A series of storm systems pushing into the West will bring rain and mountain snow to the region. Expect locally heavy amounts of rain along the favored slopes of some mountain ranges. Snow will fall with several inches across the Sierra and mountains of Southern California. Snow levels will generally lower to around 5,000 feet in the Sierra and 6,000 feet in S. California.
