I made a few adjustments on the potential snow and severe weather areas for next week. The models seem to be coming into better agreement on the storm coming out of the southern Rockies and winding up as it moves north into the Great Lakes. If the trend of the models continues, we will see a swath of moderate to heavy snow on the back of the storm and a band of severe storms with wind damage and hail, perhaps a tornado on the east side of the storm.
What you will also see is a huge contrast in temperatures with 50s to 70s on one side of the front and 20s to 40s on the other side of the front.
It's going to be a stormy period across the country, but the models seem to differ on the outcome.
The storm that is coming into the Plains will produce a wide range of weather including snow, ice and flooding rains.
The holiday time will be stormy in the Plains and Front Range of the Rockies. Travel will be impacted by the weather.
A swath of moderate to heavy snow to move from the Midwest through the Great Lakes.
A storm will streak out of the Rockies into the Great Lakes producing a swath of a snow along its path.
