US winter storm

Updated: 12/3/2018 2:43:18 AM
A new winter storm is gearing up to bring widespread impacts from the south-central United States to the East later this week after first sweeping into California around midweek. The new storm is expected to end the current cool and dry spell in California by returning another round of rain, mountain snow and gusty winds.
This storm is not expected to rival the potent storm from late last week which dumped feet of snow in the Sierra Nevada and triggered numerous mudslides in the burn scar areas. However, residents and visitors can still face travel disruptions and localized hazards around midweek.

The storm, which walloped the western U.S. with rain and snow on Thursday, "will produce blizzard conditions over a portion of the northern Plains and Upper Midwest this weekend," AccuWeather warned.
The heaviest snow – 6 to 12 inches – is expected from late Friday through Saturday in South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa and Minnesota. Some spots could pick up as much as 18 inches. Strong winds will blow the snow around and reduce visibility, which will bring the blizzard conditions.

The stormy weather pattern is forecast to continue, while temperatures are likely to flip back and forth from mild to cold in the eastern United States during much of December.
Expect several storms with the potential to disrupt travel and shipping from now through Christmas. While no long-term frigid conditions are forecast, prolonged abnormal warmth is also not likely in the East.

Lake effect snow is expected to pound areas near the eastern Great Lakes on Tuesday into Wednesday -- especially just south and east of Buffalo, New York, and far northwestern Pennsylvania.
Cold air is moving over the warm waters of the Great Lakes, producing lake effect snow that will be heavy in places. The highest accumulations are expected to be just south of Buffalo, where 15 to 20 inches is expected.
At the peak of the storm, more than 220,000 customers were without power in the Midwest, particularly in the Chicago area. Early Tuesday, more than 67,000 Illinois customers remained without power.

A winter storm will move across the Central Plains into the Great Lakes through the weekend bringing significant snowfall and gusty winds, leading to significant reductions to visibility, NWS warns. Meanwhile, Pacific storm systems continue to produce heavy snow in higher elevations and heavy rain along the West Coast, with flash flooding and debris flows possible over burn scars. Record lows will be widespread across the Northeast and northern Mid-Atlantic region Friday morning, November 23.

The cold temperatures felt this Thanksgiving in the northern Mid-Atlantic and Northeast will continue into Friday morning.

Low temperatures are expected to remain 8 - 16 °C below average there, which will lead to widespread record lows. Temperatures will slowly warm over the next couple of days, but remain below average through the end of the week there.
