Weather Underground Forecast for Thursday, November 29, 2012.

Thursday¼'s top weather story for the nation will remain focused on the West as the next in a series of wet and strong storms reaches the West Coast. After yesterday¼'s cold front passes, a second stronger cold front will arrive at the northern California and Pacific Northwest coasts with much wetter weather. Rainfall totals from this system are expected to reach up to 7 inches in the wettest areas with locally higher totals and local flooding expected through Friday morning. While areas of the inland valleys may see a break in precipitation during the day in between systems, winds will increase through the afternoon with substantial winds occurring overnight Thursday into Friday. Wind Advisories will continue for much of the region through Thursday as south to southeast sustained winds of 25 to 40 mph are expected with gusts over 55 mph along ridges and exposed areas of 2,000 feet. Precipitation will spread inland through the Northern Intermountain West and to the Northern Rockies throughout the day.

In the East, another cold front from the Northern Plains will shift eastward across the Great Lakes and reach into upper New England Thursday evening. This disturbance will enhance precipitation in the northern tier of these regions through the day.

Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Wednesday have ranged from a morning low of -2 degrees at Alamosa, Colo. to a high of 81 degrees at Hollywood, Fla.
