Torrential rain will flood parts of the Southeast this week as stripes from the Northwest will be hit by feet of snow.
Fierce storms, including tornadoes, have killed at least 10 people since Friday: three in Texas, three in Louisiana, three in Alabama and one in Oklahoma.
“Some of the same areas affected by severe weather over the past weekend will see scattered showers and thunderstorms, making cleaning difficult,” CNN meteorologist Gene Norman said Monday.
The storms will be slow, “leading to persistent rains until Wednesday,” Norman said. The humid pattern for the southeast will last until the end of the week, as the most intense rain will pass to the Tennessee and Ohio Valley from Thursday to Friday.
The southeast will not only be wet, but it will also be exceptionally warm.
“Temperature anomalies on average will range between 10 and 20 degrees above normal in much of the Mid-Southeast Atlantic and in the Central Appalachians.”
Further west, heavy snowfall will cover much of Oregon and Washington.
“Expect treacherous and frosty travel conditions in these affected areas.”
