The storm going through the Dakotas is going to wind up and produce a windblown snow from eastern North Dakota into northern Minnesota and far western Ontario. Winds will be gusting over 40 mph, and the snow, which will be heavy and wet, will be plastered over everything. I think some areas will see up to 6 inches of snow with roads becoming snow covered and slick. Even the high country of western Montana and Wyoming will see heavy snows with over 6 inches in some of the higher locations.
The cold air following the storm will plunge south and east. I know some of the models have been showing snow later in the weekend across parts of the eastern Great Lakes and Northeast. I think it's a little early in the season for snow despite what the models are showing. The boundary layer temps are not cold enough yet even though the upper-level temps where the snow develops will be cold enough for snow. What happens is the snowflakes fall through a warm boundary layer and just melt into rain. Soon folks, soon it will be snow season....
Another snow event is on the way. The weekend storm looks like a big one for snow.
A widespread snow and ice event today into Monday. More on the way later this week.
Heavy snow and even thundersnow coming Northeast tonight. More ice and snow Sunday.
Damaging ice storm on the way for the lower Mississippi Valley. Another storm will bring more snow and ice problems this weekend.
A cold and wintry weather pattern setting up prior to the Holidays.
