Big Daddy Blizzard and Severe Weather This Week

April 08, 2013; 10:13 AM


The storm will certainly be a Big Daddy of a storm for the Rockies and Plains in regards to the blizzard and severe weather. Places like Denver into South Dakota will see over 6 inches of wind-blown snow that will shut down places for at least a day or so. Roads will be closed due to the heavy nature of the snow.

The snow map is the ECMWF total snowfall for this week. I thought it would be something cool to show today.

Severe weather will continue today with Tuesday being the worse day as shown on the map. I do think SPC will go with a moderate risk by Tuesday for the potential of large tornadoes. We should a few supercells today with large hail and a couple of tornadoes, but tomorrow, I think we will see more numerous tornadoes across Kansas and Oklahoma. By Wednesday, we should see a squall line moving across the Mississippi Valley with wind damage, hail and a few more tornadoes.
