    Tornadoes, Tropical System, Blizzard, Heavy Rains... So Much Weather

    October 2, 2013; 10:55 AM ET

    Commentary

    This is going to be a very nasty storm in the end. Given that we have just about every weather situation that will happen through the weekend, including snow, tornadoes, tropical storm and heavy rains. The tornado outbreak, I think, has the potential to be the worse than any tropical storm or blizzard because if one large tornado hits a town or city, it will cause extensive damage. In contrast, if Tropical Storm Karen forms in the Gulf of Mexico, impacts will be mainly gusty winds under 50 mph and flooding rains.

    The snow from Wyoming into Nebraska and South Dakota will be heavy and in some areas, combination of the high winds and snow will create blizzard conditions. I do expect a lot of travel problems through that area.

    The severe storms will march east Saturday and Sunday, and I do think there is a risk of tornadoes through the weekend despite the fact that wind damage and hail will be the main impacts.
