Showers moved across the Great Lakes and into the Northeast on Wednesday, and showers also formed over parts of the West.

A warm front extending from the northern Plains to Pennsylvania produced the scattered, mostly light showers over the Great Lakes states. The showers were accompanied by wind gusting to 30 mph in places.

By late afternoon, the showers had extended into eastern sections of New York and Pennsylvania, New Jersey and parts of New England.

Radar indicated some of the rain turned to snow during the afternoon in northern sections of New York and the New England states.

In the West, clouds covered much of the Pacific Northwest, the northern Great Basin and the Rockies.

Showers spread across Washington through Idaho into western Montana, and also extended into northwestern Oregon.

In some areas, the rain turned to snow at elevations above 6,000 feet. Accumulations of up to 10 inches were possible at some higher elevations.

Isolated, light showers also moved eastward across parts of Nevada, Utah, Wyoming and Colorado.

A few widely scattered, very light showers extended across the Dakotas into Minnesota.

Elsewhere, a few isolated showers formed over Florida and along the coasts of the Carolinas.

Wind blowing at more than 25 mph kicked up heavy surf along Florida's Atlantic coast, causing beach erosion in some areas. High tides peaked at about 2 feet above normal along the coast and offshore waves peaked as high as 10 feet, the National Weather Service said.

Showers also were possible in southeastern Texas and far southwestern Louisiana.

Wednesday's temperatures around the Lower 48 states ranged from a morning low of 14 at Saranac Lake, N.Y., to midday readings of 84 at Harlingen and Fort Stockton, Texas. The lowest wind chill was 5 at Rutland, Vt.
