Unseasonable Sandra: Hurricane Threat for Mexico, Torrential Rain in Southern Plains

Dr. Jeff Masters, November 25, 2015

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

Holiday travel during the busy Saturday/Sunday Thanksgiving weekend across portions of the Southern Plains will get disrupted by a most unusual occurrence--flooding rains and a potential ice storm, enhanced by moisture from the strongest Eastern Pacific hurricane observed so late in the year. Declared a hurricane on Tuesday night, Sandra may reach Category 3 strength before weakening and approaching the Mexican coast on Friday or Saturday. Sandra's moisture will feed into a large-scale heavy rain event: flash flood watches are already in effect from far north Texas to southwest Illinois .On the northwest edge of the heavy rain swath, there should be a parallel strip with low-level temperatures cold enough for mostly light but widespread freezing rain, sleet, and/or snow, with an initial round from Thanksgiving Day into Friday and perhaps a second batch over the weekend as another lobe rotates around the sprawling upper-level low.
