The maps below show the areas of concern for the severe weather and snow. I think we talked about the severe weather yesterday and not much has changed in regards to the storms developing in Texas and rolling across the Southern states.
The models have been going north and south on the snow area the last two days. Typically, when a storm attacks a high this time of the year, you end up with a narrow band of heavy snow on the northern fringes of the storm. While the map below shows a wide area of snow, I think what we will see is a narrow band running just north of the Ohio River and along the Mason-Dixon Line. Within that zone, 4-8 inches of snow can fall with lighter amounts north of that band.
Severe weather will rip across the Northern Plains today. Parts of Canada may see tornadoes.
Severe weather will be the focus the next couple of days. Tornadoes may hit western Canada.
Heavy thunderstorms to bring some locally damaging wind gusts. Tornadoes for Canada! It's the season for them!
A cluster of thunderstorms or perhaps an Derecho will produce a swath of damaging wind gusts across North Dakota into northern Minnesota.
The rains are underway across Texas so watch the flooding. Sniffing out a storm development along the East Coast.
Storms will develop over the Southern Plains and will bring damaging winds and flash flooding rains.
