Snow to Be Washed Out

Once strong, the low pressure centered over the Midwest is now an old storm, slowly filling up and loosing power. During the peak of its activity though,the low produced a potpourri of bad weather — tornadoes, hailstorms, and snow from Missouri to Illinois. The cold front, part of the low, will continue making its way towards the Atlantic, affecting Florida and the southern part of the East Coast with thunderstorms.

Although the main low is weakening, a secondary low will pass along the eastern coast, organizing the moisture carried by the primary low into a relatively strong and rapidly developing system. Temperatures will remain mostly above zero during the passage of this secondary low, so precipitation is expected to fall mostly as rain. However, early this morning precipitation will be in the form of snow and sleet with a possible accumulation of around an inch. Before noon, the relatively warm air will make the precipitation fall as rain.
