Note: I will be out of town next week at CES in Vegas so no blog posts or videos.
1. While it's very cold today, the next cold air mass coming in Monday and Tuesday next week will be even colder to the point of being dangerous from the northern Plains to the Northeast. Highs may not get above 0! Lake-effect snow will be heavy, and some areas may pick up 1-3 feet of snow.
2. Snow map is up for the next storm hitting the Midwest and Ohio Valley. I think this storm will produce a large area of 6+ inches of snow followed by rapid temperature drops.
3. Another storm later next week will bring another round of moderate to heavy snow to almost the same areas. It's not out of the question that parts of the Midwest and Ohio Valley have 1-3 feet of snow on the ground by the time the January thaw hits around the 13th, which brings up the flooding issue that week.
Snow will hit the Northeast today then the Upper Midwest Wednesday.
Snow across the Great Lakes and Heavy Storms across the South and East Coast.
The weather will become active this weekend as snow hits the Rockies and severe storms hit the Plains.
A more active weather pattern next week as a chilly airmass comes south.
Storms today in the mid-Atlantic can have a small hail. About the storm next week.
The weather calms down as the warmth comes into the East.
