Blizzard, Tornadoes, Coastal Low and Hurricane?

The first week of November 2008 is coming to a stormy close. The weather map across the United States shows a blizzard devleoping in the Dakotas, a tornado watch posted on the warm side of the blizzard, a strong coastal storm tracking north along the eastern seaboard and the possiblity of hurricane Paloma developing near the central American coast of Nicaragua.

Paloma is forecast to strengthen into a category 1 storm and track through Cuba over the weekend. The coastal storm will likely pull away from the mid Atlantic region on Thursday. The blizzard, and the severe thunderstorms ahead of it, are expected to move east and weaken somewhat, although a cold front should track through Maryland on Saturday, bringing and end to uneasonably mild temperatures by Sunday and Monday.
