Sandy Slowly Winding Down

October 30, 2012; 4:45 PM ET

Sandy is spinning through my neck of the woods this evening and will slowly drift north into Canada through Thursday. Gusty winds, showers, and mountain snow remains the main concern for the next few days. The storm moving into the West Coast now is the next one for us to deal with, starting this weekend over the southern Plains.

  • Wet East Coast, Hot Plains, East Pacific Active

    June 2, 2015; 9:45 PM ET

    While the East Coast remains cool and rainy for a while, Texas and Oklahoma will dry out and heat up. One source of moisture down the road for the middle of the nation could be the tropical systems in the East Pacific.

  • Storms and Soakings SC to Delmarva, Tropics Too

    June 1, 2015; 9:00 PM ET

    A slow moving upper low and a steamy air mass beneath it will keep drenching thunderstorms near the East Coast the next several days while areas farther west largely dry out. There's plenty of tropical stuff to watch as well.

  • Stormy Setup Shifting East

    May 30, 2015; 12:00 AM ET

    The southern Plains will see less rain, maybe very little the next several days, hooray! Meanwhile, the Southeast will see wetter weather, hooray!

  • Flood Threat Not Over Yet

    May 26, 2015; 9:15 PM ET

    In the southern Plains the threat for flooding rain continues into the weekend before finally shifting east. The Southeast could use the rain but let's hope it's not too much of a good thing.

  • Southeast Moistening Up, Plains Still Wet and Stormy

    May 25, 2015; 6:00 PM ET

    The weather pattern will remain favorable for wet but maybe not as wet weather in the Southern Plains while the Southeast gradually moistens up. Time to take a peek a the tropics again, too.

  • Soaking Storms Shift a Bit East

    May 24, 2015; 7:45 PM ET

    A minor change in the upper level pattern will give the southern Plains a brief respite from the heavy rains, which will shift to the east somewhat. Eventually, we'll moisten up much of the Southeast as a result.
