1. Not too worried about the tropics right now. Storms that do develop will stay in the Atlantic and not affect the U.S. Perhaps Humberto will become our first hurricane of the season.
2. I am starting to look at the severe weather event for Thursday. The heat in the Plains will head east under the front and many areas will see the last 90-plus degree weather of the season before the front comes through. When the front does come through, we may see a significant outbreak of wind damage and hail reports. What is catching my eye is the negative tilt of the trough, which is notorious for severe weather. What is lacking is a strong low-level jet. So with that said, we'll have to watch the model runs and weather the next couple of days and see how it all unfolds.
Heavy snow will hit the mid-Atlantic today with over 6 inches in places. Weather mellows out following the storm.
A band of heavy snow will form in the Mississippi valley and move northeast into the mid-Atlantic.
Two storms, each one will bring a variety of winter weather this week. Looks like winter ends next week.
A storm will bring snow, ice, heavy rain, flooding and thunderstorms. We may see more snow in the South later this week.
Stormy weather through Wednesday. Expect more snow, heavy rain, maybe flooding and severe storms.
Winter may go out kicking and screaming as the pattern becomes stormy heading into March.
