Discussion

A major storm will ride up the eastern seaboard over the next 24 hours and it will bring the I-95 corridor region from DC to New York City heavy rainfall that may end up in the 2-4 inch range by midday tomorrow as we go from drought-like conditions to flood-like in quite a hurry. Rain will develop later this afternoon and continue heavy at times through tomorrow morning and there can be a thunderstorm or two mixed in. Winds will increase noticeably tonight out of the southeast or east pumping in even milder air and temperatures will likely rise through the 40's reaching quite mild levels by early Wednesday. As the storm pulls away tomorrow night, another batch of Arctic air will move into the Mid-Atlantic region, temperatures will drop quickly, and lingering rain showers could change to snow showers accompanied by strong northwest winds. Thanksgiving Day promises to be very cold with well below normal temperatures for this time of year and strong northwest winds will continue well into the day.
