The map below shows the area where snow and severe weather will occur. I think this is going to be wild storm with heavy snow in the cold air.
The GFS has gone a little too far north with the storm track on the GFS run. I think later runs will show the storm track south again with the snow going from Colorado to Virginia. Euro is just coming in now so have not seen the latest information on that model.
I am impressed with the severe weather. The left front quad of a 150-knot jet will move into the South by Sunday morning and that strong of a jet means intense upward motion. Not only will we see the potential for tornadoes but also flooding.
The tropics are active and we have two systems impacting the U.S. and one potential one next week.
Tropical system remains disorganized, but once in the Gulf of Mexico it may start to develop.
Heavy storms along the front today. System in the tropics is having problems but should get its act together soon.
Track of tropical system critical for development, but South Florida could be threatened first.
A new tropical system may be a threat to southern Florida late in the weekend and early next week.
The tropics will produce a storm that could impact the United States coast.
