Snow Across the Upper Midwest; Tornado Pattern Next Week

April 16, 2014; 10:50 AM ET


1. The snow across the Upper Midwest will be heavy today into tonight. It seems winter never wants to end for the folks across Minnesota, the Dakotas and Wisconsin. I think some places will get up to a foot of snow between Duluth and Minneapolis. A warming trend is coming so all the snow that falls should melt away rather quickly this week into the weekend.

2. The pattern is setting up for tornadoes to make a return to the Plains next week. The trough will come into the Rockies, and the setup means that storms should develop along the dry line as early as Tuesday evening, but most likely will occur Wednesday and Thursday. Keep in mind, we are very low, which is good, on the number of tornadoes so far this year, but that may begin to change next week.
