A major storm system will be affecting the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, and New England through the weekend producing heavy rain, heavy snow, and possibly a few isolated severe storms. This system will track from the Gulf Coast today northeastward to Eastern Canada by Sunday. The severe storm potential with an isolated severe wind gust and an isolated tornado will be along the FL panhandle Gulf Coast early today and then mainly in eastern NC later on today. The rain could be heavy up and down the east coast with this system in addition to heavy snow developing on the northwest side on Saturday in New England. Several inches of snow could fall in parts of NH, VT western MA, western ME, and possibly CT and RI.
Another disturbance is expected to move from south TX late tonight/early Saturday, across the northern Gulf, and then across FL late Sunday. Scattered showers and a few storms will be possible along the Gulf Coast with more widespread activity with heavy rain anticipated in central and southern FL Sunday evening and overnight.
Finally, some precipitation will move into the pacific NW Saturday evening and early Sunday but will run into a dry air mass, so the majority of this activity will be west of the Cascades mainly in WA and OR.
