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 severe weather pattern develops next week in the Plains. Storms possible in the mid-Atlantic.
Nasty weather coming to the Plains next week and beyond.
Snow for Minneapolis on north today into tonight. A severe weather pattern occurs next week.
Snow will hit the Northeast today then the Upper Midwest Wednesday.
Snow across the Great Lakes and Heavy Storms across the South and East Coast.
The weather will become active this weekend as snow hits the Rockies and severe storms hit the Plains.
