Yesterday, a tornado occurred in the right rear quad of the departing jet streak. Today, that jet streak has moved up into the Northeast, and the right rear quad of the jet will stir up heavy storms from Kentucky to Maryland this afternoon. There is a push of higher dew point air into the front across this areas, so there will be at least fuel for the storms to develop with.
The second area will be under the left exit region of the tropical jet streak that is over the northern Mexico into Texas. The exit region will produce storms across parts of Oklahoma into southern Kansas and the Texas Panhandle.
In both areas, the main impacts will be damaging wind gusts and hail, although a couple of tornadoes are possible.
A cold and wintry weather pattern setting up prior to the Holidays.
Cold air spreads out across much of the country and leads to a battle ground of snow and ice in the East.
Lake snows will be heavy in some of the traditional NW flow locations.
Storm will bring a lot of wild weather the next 24 hours.
A storm will bring wintry weather and severe weather as well. Not the best prior to Thanksgiving.
Storm could bring a swath of snow this week, but where and how much?
