|The storm system responsible for plenty of heavy rain and a few dangerous storms in the nation`s midsection today will become the Deep South and Midwest`s problem to wrap up the weekend. Meanwhile, another round of snow will pile up on top of the early-weekend accumulation in the Northwest.|
WeatherBug Meteorologist Miranda Hilgers has the latest in this exclusive WeatherBug National Outlook.
Umbrellas and windshield wipers will get a good workout across the Deep South today. Heavy downpours will soak places like New Orleans, Atlanta, Birmingham, Ala., and Charlotte, N.C., leading to potential flash flooding problems.
The atmosphere will be ripe for dangerous thunderstorms to sweep along the Gulf Coast into the eastern Carolinas as well. Gusty winds will be the main threat, with a few tornadoes also possible.
Across the Nation`s Midsection, much of the Midwest and Great Lakes will have to brace for showers. Although not the soaking set to hammer the Southeast, St. Louis, Memphis, Tenn., and Indianapolis will see a dreary, wet Sunday. Enough cold air will wrap in behind the storm to change the rain to a brief period of snow across the eastern Plains, but no accumulation is expected.
A new low pressure system will scoot into the Northwest today, returning showers to the coast and Interstate 5 while more snow falls in the Cascades. Snow showers will taper off in the Rockies while California, the Great Basin, Southwest and Northeast stay dry.
The coldest air will stay bottled up in the Mountain West, northern Plains and Northeast where highs won`t budge from the 30s and 40s. The West Coast will warm into the 50s and 60s, while 70s and 80s dominate the Southern Tier. Large stretches of the Mississippi Valley to East Coast will warm into the 50s with pockets of cooler 40s in the Appalachians.
