Note: I will be out of the office Wednesday and Thursday, so no blog post until Friday.
I posted two images below. One shows where heavy storms may develop, and the other shows the wind speeds off the NMM model for the Plains. While that image shows sustained winds, gusts can be as high as 70 mph in the Dakotas into Nebraska and up to 50 mph in Kansas and Iowa.
In the thunderstorm area, the main impact will be damaging winds. With that much momentum, we will probably see a line of storms develop with embedded bow echos and strong winds, perhaps to 65 mph.
I did note in the video that the GFS model continues to show a hurricane hitting Florida after day 10. While it's very far out there, it's still not out of the question that it can happen. There is a big high coming down, and big highs can help spin up storms this time of the year. It will be interesting to see if the Euro will pick up on the storm as we get closer to the time of the event.
Major snowstorm will hit the Midwest to New England Sunday into Monday.
Snow through Friday followed by a bigger storm in regards to snow this weekend into early next week.
The pattern will continue to produce a couple more snowstorms. The storm this weekend may produce a large swath of snow and wintry mix.
Blizzard continues to rage across New England. More snow is coming with two more storms.
The blizzard will hit tonight and last into Tuesday. This will be an extreme storm for New England.
Major snowstorm starts with workweek as clipper explodes off the coast. It may become a blizzard for New England and NYC.
