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.
