  • Heavy rain returns to the Gulf Coast and heavy snow for the northern Rockies

Heavy rain and thunderstorms will be making a return to portions of the
Deep South and into the Tennessee River Valley to begin 2020. There will
be a deep surge of moisture from the western Gulf of Mexico ahead of a
longwave trough over Mexico and a warm front lifting northward across the
Gulf Coast region. Current indications suggest 2 to 4 inches of rainfall
from Louisiana to southern Tennessee, and there may be some instances of
flooding with a Slight Risk of excessive rainfall from WPC in effect for
parts of these areas. A few strong to severe thunderstorms can also be

For the Pacific Northwest, a pair of cold fronts will make their way
inland with a surge of moisture off the Pacific. The result will be heavy
rain for coastal areas of Washington and Oregon, and heavy snow for the
Olympics and Cascades. The central and northern Rockies will also be
affected by these storm systems with at least a foot of snow possible for
the higher elevations of northern Idaho and western Montana through
Thursday morning.

Elsewhere across the continental U.S., lake effect snow is expected
downwind of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario as cold northwesterly winds cross
the warmer waters. Mainly dry conditions are expected across the Florida
Peninsula, the Desert Southwest, and the central Plains. Much of the
central and eastern U.S. should begin the new year with temperatures near
to above normal, and near to below normal for the Rockies and parts of the
Intermountain West.


After a cold morning, southwest winds and milder temperatures are expected into Thursday. Small chances for drizzle, light rain and snow are forecast from Thursday night through Friday night. Temperatures will cool slightly for the weekend but remain above normal.

Happy New Year from NWS Chicago! After a seasonally cool start to the day, breezy southwest winds will usher in a mild start to the new year. Clouds will increase tonight into Thursday. Rain chances return Thursday night, with some rain/snow chances lingering Friday night into early Saturday. Confidence on the Friday night to Saturday time frame is still rather low at this distance, so stay tuned to the forecast in the next few days.
