A Lot of Weather Including Snow, Wintry Mix and Heavy Rains

November 21, 2013; 11:32 AM ET


1. The cold air is heading south across the Plains and will undercut the warm air aloft with the result being a wintry mix across the Plains into western Texas. That same cold air mass is coming east this weekend and will overwhelm the Great Lakes and Northeast. We will see heavy lake-effect snow developing Saturday and lasting into Sunday night. The favored northwest flow locations will get amounts over 6 inches with some local amounts of 1-2 feet.

2. It would appear the storm next week will go wide right and just be a rainstorm for the Southeast, perhaps up into New England. I think we need to wait some before the true winter weather hits the Northeast and Appalachians after Thanksgiving.

3. Heavy rains will hit Arizona, so be prepared for some flooding problems in the deserts Friday.

4. Heavy rains may also hit the Southeast next Tuesday and we could see a flood threat across parts of Alabama, Georgia into the Carolinas.

    A cold front passing through the Southeast will produce strong storms today. An upper-level low may bring heavy rains and flooding to parts of the mid-Atlantic later this week.
