Snow From the Rockies to the Upper Midwest

November 19, 2013; 10:56 AM ET


1. Below is a cool image showing a cross-section across Colorado and Kansas. Notice the cold air up against the Front Range of the Rockies. Denver is located just about in the middle of the image. So what this shows you is how the cold air undercuts the warm air and why it can snow in Denver during cold air upslope situation. Cross-section analysis is a new product being offered on the Pro Site when we release the upgrades.

2. Snow is the big story across the Plains into the Upper Midwest this week. The map shows the area where snow will fall. There is some disagreement between the GFS and Euro, so I went with a compromise between the two models.

3. I know there is a storm on the models for next week, but again, the GFS and Euro are fighting it out on the track and position of the storm.
