A storm system will push across the country Sunday, bringing rain and snow. The storm will track from Missouri to Indiana throughout the day, bringing rain from central Missouri to western Ohio and southern Michigan. The front extending southward from this system will bring showers and thunderstorms across the Tennessee Valley to the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
Behind this storm, frigid air will stretch from Canada into the Plains, bringing snow from Kansas and Nebraska to northern Michigan. Gusty winds, combined with heavy snow, will create blizzard conditions across northern Missouri and Iowa. Accumulations will be high enough to require a shovel. Travel could be difficult across the Midwest, and airport delays could cascade to major hubs across the country.
The East Coast will be dry Sunday, with some lingering morning rain in parts of New England. Temperatures will remain near normal for late November. High pressure over the Rockies will reinforce the cold air in the northern Plains, but will also keep it mild across the south-central United States and much of the West. The exception will be coastal Washington and Oregon, where some rain could move in late in the day.
Focus: Wintry Weather to Strike the Northeast
While dry, mild weather overspreads the majority of the nation early next week, those in the Northeast will need to contend with heavy coastal rain and increasingly heavy snow at inland locations. Localized flooding and slick, dangerous travel are likely as a result.
