This NOAA satellite image taken Wednesday, December 1, 2010 at 12:45 PM EST shows widespread clouds from the Great Lakes through the Northeast and New England. Strong winds and fairly widespread precipitation continues to develop from New York through much of New England as a strong frontal boundary pushes through the region. Persistent precipitation and locally heavy rain raises flooding and flash flooding concerns throughout New York and New Jersey. Meanwhile, south/southeast winds of 25 to 35 mph with possible gusts near 80 mph cause much of the region to remain under High Wind Advisories and High Wind Warnings through the afternoon. Behind this front, a much colder air mass spills across the Great Lakes triggering areas of scattered snow showers throughout the Upper and Lower Great Lakes. In the South, high pressure settles over the Southeast with cool and dry conditions. Low relative humidity levels below 35% and daytime heating promote Red Flag Warnings over northern Florida. less
