Major Storm Next Week Hits with Severe Storms and Snow

April 5, 2013; 10:47 AM ET


There is not much to change on the thinking next week. Now it's time to get into the details of what will happen. The map below shows the areas affected by the severe weather. Tuesday will be the big day when tornadoes may occur, and some could be large and dangerous. This is a typical spring setup for severe weather in the Plains. The first day of the outbreak tends to be the worst day when the supercells will be able to ingest all the heat and humidity available without competing with other storms. Once the storms form into a line, the storms will then compete for the fuel, and the impacts go from a tornado event to wind damage and hail. That will probably occur Wednesday to Friday as the squall line moves across the Tennessee Valley into the Carolinas.

Denver should see heavy snow with the system, but hey, it's snow season for Denver. It's snow one day and the next it's 70 degrees.
