Top Weather Stories for Thursday, September 28, 2017
We have a lot going on in the weather world today. Here is a look at some of the top weather stories that we will be covering today on-air and online.
Maria is now a tropical storm and is pushing away from the U.S. east coast. Hurricane Lee is going to continue to move over the eastern Atlantic and will not impact land. The other area we are watching closely is an area of disturbed weather over the northern Caribbean. This will likely develop into an area of low pressure and impact the east coast of Florida and the Bahamas. Right now upper-level winds will be less favorable for development as it moves towards Florida, but we will continue to keep an eye on this system.
A cold front moving through the northeast U.S. will bring a big change in the temperatures on Thursday. After highs well into the 80s and low 90s Wednesday, temperatures will be down into the 70s for a majority of the region Thursday afternoon.

HEAVY RAIN POTENTIAL
Ample amounts of moisture are setting up over the Southern Plains Thursday. Factor in a frontal boundary over the region and several rounds of heavy rainfall will be possible.
The highest amounts of rainfall are expected across the border in northern Mexico, but south Texas could definitely see some heavy rain. Heavy rain potential will also be over northern New Mexico and farther north into the Central Rockies temperatures will be cold enough to support snow in the higher elevations…maybe several inches of snow!
We will continue to follow these stories and many others all day on Weather Nation and online at WeatherNationTV.com.
