Weather for this week - Nov 25 to Nov 29, 2013

This week's weather pattern will consist of snow in the Upper Midwest and Eastern United States, while dry conditions prevail in the West. The cut-off low that brought abundant snowfall to the Desert Southwest this past weekend will continue to push east bringing snow to parts of Oklahoma, Texas, and Arkansas on Monday into Tuesday. Then a very complex system affects the Eastern US through the Thanksgiving holiday.

The upper midwest will be the first area to be affected Tuesday into Wednesday. This will be a quick hitter with Northern Wisconsin and Michigan to be mainly affected. Read the Upper Midwest Daily Snow, written by Meteorologist Andrew Murray, for more details. 

Our attention now turns to the Eastern United States where areas of heavy snow and rain will be possible Tuesday through Friday.

Winter storm watches are already in place for many parts of Pennsylvania, New York, and Vermont. The resorts of Upstate New York will likely see upwards of a foot of snow through Friday afternoon, and this snow will also be accompanied by unseasonably cold temperatures of 20 degrees below average on Thanksgiving day.

Our New England Meteorologist Brian Clark, along with our Mid-Atlantic Meteorologist Kyle Dodd, will have the latest details on this holiday storm as it progresses throughout the week in the New England Daily Snow and in the Mid-Atlantic Daily Snow

Check our Powder Finderforecasts for each mountain, and our Daily Snow posts throughout the week to read how other areas of the country are faring as well. 

Safe travels and have a great Thanksgiving!
