This is going to be a busy week for the folks in the Midwest.
1. Heavy thunderstorms will hit the same areas of the Midwest today and tomorrow. While not a big outbreak, storms may produce damaging hail and strong winds. I don't think this is a big tornado situation, but I can see a few developing.
2. Speaking of tornadoes, this weekend, we reached the lowest number of tornadoes to date since 2005. The lowest year that I can find since 2000 is 2004 and we may break that by mid-May.
3. Snow may hit areas from Kansas to Wisconsin late Wednesday into Thursday. This is a very marginal situation that can go either way in regards to accumulating snow. The models are showing a lot of snow in a narrow band, but it is May and that has to be taken into account. Denver will certainly get 2-4 inches of snow by Wednesday, but that's due to upslope.
4. Areas of the Midwest and Mississippi Valley will get heavy rains this week. Some places may receive over 2 inches of rain which will only aggravate the flooding situation.
Snow to start and spread east Sunday into Monday. Severe weather spreads across the South.
Another storm with winter weather and spring weather mixed into one.
Storm will cut across the South and may bring severe weather.
Blizzard like conditions across the Northeast today. Heavy storms south of the low track.
Snow to streak from the Midwest to the Northeast with almost blizzard conditions within that snow. Heavy storms may produce wind damage.
Storm this week will bring snow and heavy thunderstorms. El Nino on the way!
