A rainstorm continue to evolve over the Northeast, drawing in colder
air with gusty winds. It was cold enough for wet snow and graupel to
fall in parts of New York state and Pennsylvania. Snow could fall
over the Adirondacks and the Green and White mountains Friday night
into Saturday. High pressure was settling over the Great Lakes and
may bring freezing temperatures to some locations of Michigan and
Ohio later on. Low humidity was adding comfort to much of the South.
Cooler air will filter over part of the Florida Peninsula at night.
Clouds and spotty showers and thunderstorms were affecting Texas and
the Plains with locally severe weather and flash flooding in central
and South Texas. Clouds and showers were affecting Washington state,
northern Oregon, northern Idaho and western Montana. Spotty storms
were erupting over parts of New Mexico, southeastern Colorado and
West Texas. Much of the balance of the West was dry.
Late May From Violent Storms to Snow...
--Severe thunderstorms and tornadoes have made their mark during late
May with countless incidents over the years. However, there have also
been incidents of snow. On May 24, 1894, snow fell and accumulated
much of the day over portions of Kentucky. Some locations received as
much as six inches of snow. Snowflakes were observed North Platte,
Neb. on May 24, 2002. Graupel fell on Binghamton Airport, N.Y. this
Friday afternoon. Graupel is considered by the weather community to
be more of a form of snow, rather than hail. Snow could fall and
accumulate over portions of the Adirondacks and the Green and White
mountains of New England this weekend.
