|Mother Nature has a few tricks up her sleeve a few days before Thanksgiving. Tuesday will be no exception with stormy skies ruling the Southeast, Northwest, Rockies and northern Plains.|
A developing storm system will spread heavy rain across northern and central Florida Tuesday. Downpours could even trigger flash flooding in Tallahassee and Jacksonville, Fla. Rain will be a bit lighter in intensity along the Southeast Atlantic Coast but still enough to slow holiday travel.
No shortage of wintry weather will be found in the Northwest, northern Rockies and northern Plains. Pacific moisture will channel inland, bring soggy weather to Seattle and Portland, Ore., while up to a foot of snow piles up across the Cascades and northern Rockies. Snow will spread into the Dakotas for the second half of the day, with 1 to 3 inches accumulating north of Interstate 90.
Between these two storm systems, sunshine will be plentiful in places like Los Angeles, Phoenix, Dallas and St. Louis. Dry weather but a bit more cloud cover will be found farther east in Indianapolis, Pittsburgh and Boston.
The Rockies, northern Plains, Midwest and Ohio Valley will see the coldest temperatures with highs in the 30s and 40s. The remainder of the U.S. will reach into the 50s and 60s with warmer 70s and 80s across the Sunshine State.
