8 AM EST December 16, 2005
By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Ryan Towell
Messy weather is forecast through the northern and eastern parts of the country, while the West enjoys yet another pleasant day today.
A mix of rain, freezing rain and snow will fall through the Northeast. Colder air will sweep in from the north late in the day changing the precipitation to all snow by tonight. Snow will be heavy at time through the northern and western sections of New England.
Temperatures will top out in the 20s and 30s over New England and
into the 40s over parts of the Northeast. Readings are likely to fall during the afternoon hours.
Passing snow showers will blow through the Upper Midwest, the Great Lakes and along the northern Appalachians. Accumulations will generally be light. The remainder of the Plains and Midwest will see variable cloudiness with chilly readings in the 20s and 30s.
Nearly all of the South and much of the Mid-Atlantic can plan for partly cloudy and dry conditions, although a few showers may develop through southern Texas. Afternoon highs will generally reach the 40s and 50s in these areas.
The weather pattern in the West favors yet another beautiful day under a partly sunny sky. Temperatures will range from the teens and 20s over the Rockies to the 40s and 50s over the Pacific Northwest, the coastal sections of the West with 60s into the Southwest.
