I am highlighting an area of severe weather through the middle of the country today through Sunday. Essentially, one storm will move away today and a second storm will move into the same are this weekend.
Today, storms will be scattered about this area, and the impacts will be mainly isolated hail and damaging wind gusts.
Saturday and Sunday, the severe storms will become more widespread again, and while the main impacts will be large hail and damaging winds, a tornado threat will increase late Saturday and Sunday across parts of Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma.
Note: Next week, a heat wave will develop across parts of California. Highs will reach into the 90s to near 100.
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.
