Weather Underground Forecast for Tuesday, November 27, 2012. The strongest storm in the country Tuesday will make its way through the eastern third of the country. The heaviest rain associated with this storm will fall in the Southeast along the eastern Gulf Coast. The storm itself will move off the eastern seaboard by the end of Tuesday before moving farther out into the Atlantic Ocean Wednesday. Thus light rain is possible in the Mid-Atlantic, while a mix of rain and snow is possible farther to the north. Winter Weather Advisories are posted for eastern Pennsylvania in anticipation of up to 4 inches of snowfall.
In combination with the rain and snow will be the cold air that will continue to funnel into the Upper Midwest and Northeast. This cold air will greatly reduce daytime high temperatures and overnight low temperatures into Wednesday. The Northern Plains and Upper Midwest will rise into the 10s, 20s, and 30s, while the Northeast will see temperatures in the 30s and 40s.
The West Coast will enjoy one more dry day with temperatures in the 60s and 70s before a prolonged active wet period begins Wednesday. Several inches of rain is expected from Wednesday through the weekend from Washington through Central California.
Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Monday have ranged from a morning low of -8 degrees at Park Rapids, Minn. to a high of 87 degrees at Killeen/Ft Hood, Texas
