Top Weather Stories for September 29, 2017
It’s finally Friday! A lot going on as we move into the weekend…so lets gets right to it.
Maria and Lee are moving farther into the Atlantic today, but we are still watching the tropics very closely. A large and disorganized area of cloudiness and showers just south of Florida will move into favorable environmental conditions and likely develop an area of low pressure. This system will then bring heavy rain to the Florida peninsula over the next few days.
This low will have abundant moisture to work with as it moves along the east coast of Florida.
Even if this system doesn’t develop into a tropical system (40% chance), it will still produce heavy rainfall over western Cuba, the Florida Keys and the Florida peninsula over the next few days.
Strong Storm Chances In The Southwest
Scattered showers and storms are likely throughout the 4 Corners today. The highest chance for any severe thunderstorms will be in southwest New Mexico and southeast Arizona.
This particular area is under a Marginal risk of severe weather. This means scattered showers and storms are in the forecast and some isolated storms could become severe with large hail and damaging winds. Make sure you follow Weather Nation on twitter and facebook for the latest updates on today’s severe weather threat.
Heavy Weekend Snow for the Northern Rockies
Mountain snow will increase across the Pacific Northwest and Intermountain West as a cold front moves through. Heavy snow chances are looking very likely for the highest peaks in Idaho, western Montana and Wyoming…with a moderate risk for heavy snow on Sunday.
Keep it tuned to Weather Nation all weekend for updates on the heavy snow. If you experience any of the snow and want to share your photos with us…please do! You can share them with us on our social media outlets.
