National Weather Dec 3

NATIONAL WEATHER SUMMARY

The strong storm in the Southeast will continue to produce
active weather as it advances northeastward on Thursday. Healthy
moist flow from the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean will wrap
around the system and fuel another round of light to moderate mixed
precipitation across the Mid-Atlantic, the Ohio Valley, and the
Northeast during the progression of this system. As the system
reaches southeastern Canada, energy from this storm will also
spread across the Upper Midwest, sparking areas of snow showers.
Meanwhile, the tail of a cold front associated with this system
will crank out rain showers and thunderstorms in southern Florida
as the front exits into the Atlantic Ocean.
Behind this system, chilly and less active weather will persist in the central regions of the nation as a frigid ridge of high
pressure drops into the Central U.S. Cold air flow associated with
this system will drop temperatures to below seasonal averages from
the Rockies through the Plains.
High pressure will also keep dry and quiet weather in place throughout the West on Thursday.
