- The Washington Times - Wednesday, March 25, 2009

The nation’s main weather event on Wednesday will be a snow storm system spinning over the Upper Midwest and the Great Lakes regions.

Several inches of snow was expected over the Northern Plains and a cold front associated with the system will extend from the storm down to the Southern Plains.

A line of showers and thunderstorms will extend from the Upper Midwest, down across the Mississippi Valley and into Texas.

Parts of the mid-Atlantic states and the Southeast can expect the line of precipitation to reach the area by the end of the day.

Areas of heavy rain and gusty winds associated with the front are anticipated from the Upper Midwest out to the mid-Atlantic, while hail, damaging winds and possibly a tornado will develop across the mid- and lower-Mississippi Valley and the Southeast.

Areas of the Central and Southern Plains behind the front can expect partly to mostly clear skies for the first part of the day before clouds filter in.

Farther east, lingering high pressure will keep skies mostly clear over New England, while most of the Southeast will see clouds and precipitation by the end of the day.

Out West, a second storm system will produce wet weather over the Northwest and down into the Rockies in the Southwest. Areas of heavy snow are expected across the region, and several inches of snow accumulation are expected.

Temperatures in the Lower 48 states on Tuesday ranged from a low of minus 2 degrees at Mount Washington, N.H., to a high of 92 degrees at McAllen, Texas.
