NATIONAL SUMMARY -The system set to impact Thanksgiving travelers began to move up the East Coast Tuesday, spreading rain from Florida to Virginia. Temperatures ran above normal across this area with the heaviest rain falling over Florida and along the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina. Savannah, Georgia; Beaufort, South Carolina; and Tampa, Florida, all received over 2 inches of rain from this storm, causing some localized flash flooding. Port Saint John, Florida, received some of the most rain from this storm, receiving more than 7.5 inches on the day. Dry weather was seen across the rest of the East ahead of the storm with temperatures returning closer to normal. -Temperatures ran below normal across the Plains Tuesday as a disturbance shifted over the region. This spread some snow over northern portions of the region and back across the northern Rockies with snow accumulations generally between 2 and 4 inches over the Dakotas and back across the Rockies. Rain from this disturbance fell s far west as Seattle, resulting in the sixth consecutive day with measurable rainfall in the city. Dry weather with above-normal temperatures was elsewhere across the West. SPECIAL WEATHER Remembering New England Hurricane -While New England is starting to be impacted by a winter storm, a much different story was unfolding over the region back on this date in 1888. On this date those many years ago, a hurricane passed inside Nantucket, over Cape Cod and later crossed over Nova Scotia. This produced wind gusts of 84 mph at Block Island, Rhode Island.
