The images below are from the NMM model showing the simulated radar for Tuesday and the total rainfall through Wed morning. As you can see, we have a squall line shown clearly on the simulated radar from NY to Virginia. It's going to be one of those thin lines of storms with heavy rains and gusty winds, but very little lightning. When the line goes through winds will whip-up to over 40 mph and the rain will be intense.
I think given the recent dry weather, most areas should be able to handle the heavy rains. Flooding will be confined to urban flooding and small streams and creeks.
A cold and wintry weather pattern setting up prior to the Holidays.
Cold air spreads out across much of the country and leads to a battle ground of snow and ice in the East.
Lake snows will be heavy in some of the traditional NW flow locations.
Storm will bring a lot of wild weather the next 24 hours.
A storm will bring wintry weather and severe weather as well. Not the best prior to Thanksgiving.
