We have a system that may develop over the next couple of days in the Southwest Gulf of Mexico, or Western Caribbean, which is the remnants of the Pacific storm Barbara that made landfall in Mexico earlier this week.
High pressure will stay strong over Florida for the weekend and into early next week.
The system pulled moisture in from the Gulf of Mexico, while also pulling cool air in from Canada. This allowed for rain and snow to develop from eastern Texas into the Northeast. About 2.60 inches of sleet was reported at Macon, Ark., while 7.3 inches of snow was reported southwest of Mammoth Spring, Ark. The ice storm moved out of eastern Texas early Friday morning, with overnight sleet accumulation up to 3.5 inches at Little Elm, Texas. The northern side of this system brought heavy snow from Missouri through the Ohio River Valley. Snowfall reports ranged from 12 inches at Chester, Ill., to 9 inches at Frederickstown, Mo. As this front moved through, it pushed cool air into the Southeast. Temperatures ranged from 15 to 25 degrees below normal across the region.
A trough of low pressure in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico pushed moisture into the Southeast, which brought scattered showers and thunderstorms to the region. Periods of heavy rainfall spread across northern and central Florida, as well as Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, and moved into Georgia. Heaviest rainfall was reported in Meridian, Miss., with a midday total of 0.99 inches.
