1. The map below shows the temperatures this morning. This is a good example of clear skies and somewhat fresh snowcover can do with an arctic air mass. Many places across the Northeast had temps well below zero.
2. I posted another map showing the snowfall for the storm coming out of Texas into the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes. It's just light snow this weekend with a few inches in places.
3. Western Texas will get some snow and sleet today. Some places may pick up 4-6 inches of snow, but most will have 1-4 inches of snow between El Paso and San Antonio Hill Country.
4. Next week, a storm will come out of the Southwest and into the Plains. Looks like severe weather and snow will be the main impacts. Severe weather will be located across the Southeast, while a swath of snow will go through the Plains into the western Great Lakes. Prelim maps come out tomorrow.
The Plains will have severe weather the next several days with Thursday being the big day. Tropics may produce a storm that could impact the Southeast coast.
The Plains will have several days of severe weather including tornadoes. The tropics could heat up next week off the Southeast coast.
The storms will return to the High Plains and some will be severe this weekend.
More heavy rains and flooding for eastern Texas today. That area of heavy rains head northeast to the mid-Atlantic.
A storm coming out of Texas will produce heavy rains and flash flooding as it moves Northeast this week.
Storms in Texas will produce heavy rains and damaging winds. Another storm will bring more stormy weather late week.
