For parts of Maine and Atlantic Canada, the storm this weekend will turn out to be a blizzard; getting there is another issue. My confidence level on the snow and wintry mix from the Carolinas to New England remains on the low side this morning. While it appears we have a storm that develops off the coast, getting snow back into the I-95 corridor might be a tough issue. The latest operational runs show the Carolinas getting hit by snow and wintry mix Saturday then the storm goes out bypassing the I-95 corridor until it reaches northern New England. From there, the storm becomes a monster and hits northern Maine and Atlantic Canada with blizzard conditions.
Next week, we have at least two storms, perhaps three, that will bring snow and severe weather. The map below shows the first storm Monday and Tuesday, but in regards to snow and severe weather, I think it's the second in the series that brings the biggest impacts over a large part of the country. That storm may produce blizzard conditions in the Plains and a tornado outbreak in the southern Mississippi Valley.
At least two areas of heavy rains through this weekend may result in flooding problems.
Heat and Humidity will attack the trough and result in heavy rains and heavy thunderstorms.
Severe storms will develop across New England this afternoon and may produce damaging winds and even another tornado.
A busy weekend for the Midwest and Ohio Valley as severe storms will hit ahead of the cold front.
Severe weather will rip across the Northern Plains today. Parts of Canada may see tornadoes.
Severe weather will be the focus the next couple of days. Tornadoes may hit western Canada.
