Fall storm could bring first measurable snow of the season to parts of northeast and northern New England

While most of the United States experiences freezing temperatures this week, the FOX Forecast Center is also watching for a fall storm that will bring snow accumulation and heavy rain to parts of the country.

The action kicks off Monday in parts of the Plains, such as Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas, as an area of ​​rainfall erupts during the morning hours and moves eastward throughout the day.

Rain is expected across much of Texas from this storm system, where up to 2 inches of rain will be possible.

Additionally, severe thunderstorms could occur in southeast Texas and southern Louisiana. These storms will be capable of producing winds in excess of 60 mph with heavy rain and possibly hail.

Temperatures will however be cold enough in the Texas Panhandle and Oklahoma to support a mix of rain and snow.

Up to three inches of snow is possible in these areas, which will likely lead to difficult driving conditions as the snow falls and reduces visibility.

There is, however, good news. The storm will move quickly and precipitation will likely move out of the area by the end of Monday.

And that snowfall is rare for this part of the country at this time of year, as most cities typically see an average of less than an inch of snow in November.

WHEN CAN YOU EXPECT TO SEE THE FIRST SNOW OF THE SEASON?

As we enter Tuesday, the storm system will begin to accelerate as it tracks eastward and moves rapidly through the Mississippi and Tennessee valleys, likely to reach the southeast around noon.

On the warm side of the storm, the FOX Forecast Center expects widespread rain in the southeast.

However, the speed at which the storm moves through the region will keep rainfall totals at around an inch.

But on the cold side of the system, snow will slide into the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes region.

This area will already be under the influence of another storm system at that time, and this storm will only enhance the current snow.

The storm system will sweep across the northeast and mid Atlantic by Wednesday as an area of ​​low pressure develops off the east coast.

The I-95 corridor will see all of the rain from this storm, and that rainfall could be heavy at times.

The Wednesday morning commute will likely be impacted, and several inches of very beneficial rain will help alleviate some of the drought conditions the region is experiencing.

But snow will also be a problem in the higher elevations of the Adirondack, Green and White mountain ranges in northeast and northern New England.

This means that some of these regions could see their first measurable snowfall of the season.

The system is expected to move offshore by Thursday, with only a few rain showers and snow showers in parts of the region.
