1. I posted the map from yesterday showing the snowfall this weekend. It's a light snow and flurry event with some places picking up a couple of inches of snow.
2. The second map is for the storm next week. I think the big impact could be the severe weather across the South which should start Tuesday in eastern Texas and spread across the Southern states. I will have more on the event this weekend.
3. Next week is going to be warmer across the eastern part of the country, but indications are that the cold is coming back for the last half of January. The GFS shows some very cold weather coming into the Plains first and spreading into the East by Jan. 17-21. What excites me is the blocking seems to be coming back just in time for the very cold weather coming in. Sometimes, a big push of extreme cold can be ushered in by a big storm. I will leave it at that.
One more day of tornadoes, some which can be large and devastating.
Tornadoes could be worse today given the jet coming out into the Plains.
We are going into a five- to seven-day period of severe weather which will include tornadoes. We could see over 100 reports of tornadoes.
Latest map on the severe weather areas this weekend into Monday. Monday could be the big day.
Marginal severe weather the rest of the week, but the weekend could turn ugly in the Plains as the tornadoes return.
Tornadoes remain low but that may change this weekend.
