Weather Focus Shifts To The West This Weekend

A strong system and cold front will dive and carve through the West this weekend. Widespread mountain snow is expected for the favored terrain, as some winter storm watches have been issued. This system will then evolve into a multi-hazard storm of heavy rain, flooding and severe thunderstorms early to the middle of next week, from the Lower Mississippi Valley through the saturated Mid South.

Detailed Forecast

Synopsis: High pressure currently centered near the Louisiana coast will gradually move into the eastern Gulf of Mexico by this evening, continuing eastward across North Florida on Sunday, then on to near Bermuda by late Monday. Meanwhile, low pressure will start to develop in the far western Gulf early next week, causing southeast breezes to freshen and become occasionally strong. A brief lull is expected Wednesday night into Thursday in advance of a cold front. Winds quickly freshen once again sometime Thursday night or Friday morning in the wake of the next frontal passage.
