The other thing that amazes me is the lack of snow cover across the county in March. Typically you have a lot of snow cover left across the eastern part of the country this time of the year, but right now all we have is a patch across parts of Vermont, New Hampshire and northern Maine that is disappearing quickly. Also, notice the lack of snow cover across central Canada. I bring that up because any cold air masses coming down from Canada will not have any snow cover to go over to get modified so while the computer models may show cold air coming, the end result may be an air mass that is more normal in regards to temps.
It's going to be a stormy period across the country, but the models seem to differ on the outcome.
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.
