The big story will be the severe weather developing Friday and spreading northeast and east Saturday. If you notice on the map, I pulled the trigger on the severity of the storms Saturday thinking that the left front quad of the jet, high dew point and sufficient shear will be in place for damaging winds and tornadoes across the Midwest. The models are impressive in regards to the severe weather parameters coming together for a significant outbreak of severe weather Saturday.
Storms should initially develop along the dry line in western Kansas to western Texas Friday then spread northeast. The dynamics on Saturday will be the big driver in the development of supercell storms with the potential for moderate size tornadoes across Iowa and Missouri. If the storms hold together, they could spread into Illinois during the night.
Also below is a gif image of the snowfall for years with a neutral ENSO with a cold PDO/warm AMO. Interesting to see the Northeast seems to be the snowy area during these years.
Storm will produce severe weather, heavy rains and strong winds. Some snow will fall across the Midwest and Great Lakes.
Storm next week will bring many impacts which includes high winds, snow and heavy thunderstorms.
Light snow events through the weekend. Potential big storm next week prior to the holidays.
Confidence on the storm this weekend remains rather low.
The first storm brings snow across the northern Plains. Weekend storm could produce some heavy amounts but track differs with the models
Southern branch of the jet gets energized with storms this weekend and beyond.
