Not much has changed since yesterday. The snow has started in Wyoming and northern Colorado and will only expand into the Plains Wednesday and Thursday. I still think this is the last big storm for that area; in fact, we may go into a quieter weather pattern after this week.
Storms will be around the Ohio Valley and southern Plains today, and those storms will produce damaging hail and strong winds. The big day will be Wednesday as the jet comes out over the southern Plains and gets the supercells going across Oklahoma and Kansas. We may see some tornadoes late in the day. Thursday, the storms should form into a squall line that moves into the Mississippi Valley.

The band of snow and ice that develops this weekend will be bad in Kansas but more of a nuisance through the Ohio Valley.
As milder weather moves north, it will mean snow will hit the Great Lakes and Northeast today into tonight. California will get more heavy rain.
