The Nation's Weather for Thursday, December 7, 2017

—————

NATIONAL SUMMARY

Arctic air will continue to build over the Central states

while the air turns progressively colder in the East today.

As arctic air sweeps across the Great Lakes, bands of heavy

snow with local whiteout conditions will occur downwind of

the large water bodies. Due to the deceleration of the

advance of the cold air and lingering moisture, a cold rain

is in store from the coastal areas of the Carolinas to

northern Florida and coastal Texas. Snow and/or a wintry mix

that includes sleet will occur in parts of Texas. This

wintry precipitation is forecast to spread eastward over the

interior South to end the week. Most areas from the southern

New England coast to the central Appalachians, Ohio Valley,

Plains, Rockies and West can expect dry conditions. High

winds will continue to fan existing fires in California.
