I didn't change the maps for the severe weather outbreak starting Friday and lasting through Saturday night. I do think that Saturday afternoon into the night, the weather might be rather nasty with storms producing extensive wind damage and tornadoes. it really depends on whether we have a single squall line develop or supercell storms. The NAM/WRF simulated radar shows more of a multi-line structure by Saturday afternoon which would lead me to believe there will be supercell storms with the potential for tornadoes.
In any case, it looks nasty for Saturday, especially in the Iowa and Missouri zone.
Lastly, another big storm dives in next week and we could have yet another outbreak of severe storms in the Midwest and Ohio Valley.
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.
