1. The air mass coming down this weekend into the Great Lakes and Northeast is impressive in regards to just how cold it will be outside. While I am done with winter, there's no stopping the train of cold air masses through early April, although there is a hint of warming coming. I do think Sunday through Wednesday, record high MINS could be challenged in many areas. That means that the lowest high temperature for the date could get broken. We may not break overnight low records because the wind stays up and keeps temps from falling off to record lows.
2. The El Nino is coming up and I noticed the 90-day average SOI value has fallen into the negative values on the Long Paddock site.
3. Snowfall map is below for the current storm. Next week, looks like we have a storm in the East again that could produce heavy snows. Not sure where just yet, but with the trough coming into the East, bets are that the places that got hit by snow will get hit again.
The storm that is coming into the Plains will produce a wide range of weather including snow, ice and flooding rains.
The holiday time will be stormy in the Plains and Front Range of the Rockies. Travel will be impacted by the weather.
A swath of moderate to heavy snow to move from the Midwest through the Great Lakes.
A storm will streak out of the Rockies into the Great Lakes producing a swath of a snow along its path.
As one storm exits with its heavy rains and windy weather, the next one is following right behind with a swath of snow.
The snow and severe weather will continue today, but yet another storm is brewing that will bring a swath of snow.
