Short Range Forecast Discussion NWS Weather Prediction Center College Park MD 331 AM EST Tue Nov 25 2014 Valid 12Z Tue Nov 25 2014 - 12Z Thu Nov 27 2014 ***Active weather pattern for the eastern U.S.*** ***Snow showers for the Rockies and Cascades*** ***Cold weather for the northern tier states*** An active weather pattern is in place across the central and eastern U.S. for the middle of the week. A surface low is forecast to develop over the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday along the stalled frontal boundary. This feature will intensify as it moves towards the northeast, and become a nor'easter as it passes the Mid-Atlantic region and New England. Although the strongest winds will likely remain offshore, widespread precipitation is expected from Florida to Maine. Rain is expected for coastal areas, and snow for the Central Appalachians and into inland parts of the Northeast U.S., which should adversely affect travel on Wednesday. Out West, more mountain snow is expected for the northern Rockies on the north side of a stationary frontal boundary, and rain showers for the lower valley location south of the boundary. Cold weather will continue for the northern Plains and Upper Midwest as a Canadian surface high governs the weather pattern. Nice weather will continue for the southwestern U.S. D.
