I decided to take a shot at the storm this weekend with a first look at the track and potential snow areas. I like the track of the storm coming in from the Northwest and trying to cut into the eastern Great Lakes at the same time a secondary low takes over along the East coast. That low will explode into a major snowstorm.
I like the look of the 6z GFS run, but I do not like the Euro run that tries to cut the storm way too much into the lakes. It just does not seem likely that the Euro will be correct cutting the storm so much into the lakes into a blocking pattern.
So essentially, the track is a blend of the Euro, GFS and Canadian models.
Keep in mind, we have six days to the storm which means 24 runs of GFS and 12 runs of the Euro so many things will be shown on the models.
The heat is on from the Plains into the East.
The storms will continue around the edge of the heat wave.
Severe storms will be moving around the ridge of high pressure whish is producing the high heat.
Heat wave will build in the Plains as temperatures will hit the 100s. That heat is heading east this weekend.
A cold front moving through the Northeast will bring heavy storms. High heat will build in the Plains and spread across the East.
The stormy weather will remain in the Plains today and probably tomorrow before the heat builds in.
