The map below shows the potential for the storm moving into the Plains later this week. Heavy snow will fall in Wyoming and it's not out of the question that the dynamic cooling that occurs as the storm is strengthening could lead to a burst of snow through South Dakota into northern Minnesota.
While the rain will be heavy with the storm, winds around the storm will be 40-60 mph from Kansas into the Dakotas, Iowa and Missouri.
Severe storms will initially develop across southern Minnesota into Iowa Thursday, then spread along the cold Front Friday from Illinois to Oklahoma and northern Texas. We may see an initial tornado and wind damage event across Iowa, southern Minnesota and into northeastern Kansas. A second tornado and wind event event may occur across Wisconsin into Illinois Friday.
