Two new holiday storms to bring turbulent weather across US

first_imgABC NewsBy DANIEL MANZO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — For a second consecutive week, the weather is looking quite turbulent as we head toward a major holiday.A new storm system is bringing heavy rain, gusty winds and thunderstorms to Southern California Monday and will move across the country this week.Winter weather alerts from California to Wisconsin have already been issued.This is the first big rainmaker so far this season for Southern California, where up to 2 inches of rain could fall Monday. This could cause debris flows and flooding, especially on recent burn scars.In the Southern California mountains, over a foot of snow could fall, making it dangerous to travel.Once this storm slides into the Central U.S. by Tuesday evening, it will become better organized and a large swath of snow will move across the Northern Plains and into the upper Midwest.Snow, heavy at times, may fall in major Midwestern cities like Des Moines, Iowa, Chicago and Minneapolis, Tuesday night into Wednesday. Up to 8 inches of snow may fall — the heaviest likely being in central Iowa and southwest Wisconsin.The forecast is a little more tricky on the southern side of the storm, which where states will likely experience cold rain and possible snow. This could make roads quite slippery in parts of Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma Tuesday night into early Wednesday.By Wednesday, most snow from the storm will be falling in Canada, but the lingering cold front will bring a wide line of rain and a bit of snow from Michigan to Texas.Some major cities could face abrupt weather changes, and roads could become slippery on Wednesday evening.Then, as we enthusiastically welcome the start of 2021, a new storm will quickly move into the South, and race toward the North and East.This storm will likely be even more impactful, and will bring a wide swath of mixed precipitation from the Southern Plains all the way to the Northeast. This will likely cause dangerous travel conditions on New Year’s Day.At this time it is too early to know how much snow will fall, but it’s safe to say travel will be treacherous for much of the country during the end of the holiday week.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Fast reaction: 3 takeaways from Syracuse’s win over St. Bonaventure

first_img Published on November 17, 2015 at 9:12 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse (2-0) topped St. Bonaventure (1-1), 79-66, at the Carrier Dome on Tuesday night. The Orange was outrebounded 43-32 and its top rebounder fouled out with 4:27 remaining in the game, but Michael Gbinije and Tyler Lydon paced the Orange to a win in a game once in the Bonnies’ grasp.Here are three quick observations from SU’s second victory on the season.StretchLydon slowly backpedalled after hitting a 3 that stretched Syracuse’s lead to double digits for the first time all night. St. Bonaventure called a timeout with under four minutes left and the freshman stood with a wide grin as Trevor Cooney and Gbinije approached him to celebrate.With Dajuan Coleman on the bench a majority of the night, Lydon slid into the middle of the 2-3 zone. He struggled on the glass at times, but made up for it on the offensive end with 13 points, including two late 3s that helped bury SBU.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLydon continued to showcase his versatility for a team both thin down low and offensively challenged – according to head coach Jim Boeheim – and helped SU avoid a nonconference scare.On the glassIn the first half, Tyler Roberson had more rebounds than the rest of Syracuse combined. On one sequence, he grabbed a defensive board while being nudged in the back, snatched the ball out of a scramble on the other end and hauled in an offensive board before drawing a foul.Coleman only played six minutes in the first half and Lydon struggled on the defensive end at center. Roberson shouldered the bulk of the load on the glass while SU was outrebounded in the first half.But with 7:36 remaining in the game, Roberson was called for his fourth foul. He stayed in the game and fouled out with 4:27 left. But even without its best rebounder on the night – Roberson finished with 12 – SU was able to compensate down low as it pulled away.Like MikeWith 52.7 seconds left in the first half, Gbinije picked up his third foul on a blocking call. Jim Boeheim instructed him to “stop the ball” and the point guard headed to the bench as SU closed out the half down six.He started the second frame and after the visitors’ student section erupted on a St. Bonaventure 3, Gbinije hit a wide-open 3 and slammed home a Malachi Richardson airball to bring the Orange within three at the 13-minute mark.He paced the Orange to the finish, not picking up another foul along the way, and rounded out a 23-point, five-assist and four-steal performance.
