The Beast's Not in the East...the Mess is All Out West...

Thursday, 4/7/2011, 9:00 AM EDT

Like clockwork, another system moves in from the Northwest, and by tomorrow, will bring rain and snow to the Rockies and other areas in the West. Today, it will produce rain and high-elevation snow from Central Oregon and to Northern Rockies to California and parts of the Great Basin. This evening, the Upper Plains could see showers and thunderstorms. There is a stationary front setting up from the

Lower Plains into the Mid-Atlantic that will funnel Gulf Moisture from the center of the Country into the Upper Mississippi River Valley.

Tonight, this precipitation will move up the Ohio River Valley, and then bring rain to the Mid-Atlantic by Friday evening.

There are multiple wildfires in and around West Texas. New Mexico, Western Oklahoma, SW Kansas, and Southeast Colorado are also under Red Flag Warnings today.

Please consult your local NWS office for more detailed forecasts.
