A devastating tornado outbreak on Friday has left communities across the Ohio Valley to the Gulf Coast looking for answers. The weather for recovery and clean-up efforts will be starkly different this week.
In wake of snow showers and flurries Sunday, a steadier snow developed across southern Indiana and most of Kentucky Sunday night, which produced an inch or two snow over the tornado-ravaged region.
On Monday, a high-pressure system will give clean-up crews tranquil weather through at least the middle part of the week. The high pressure system will extend from the Great Lakes to the Gulf Coast.
A gradual warm-up supported by plenty of sunshine will follow snow and cold that were received.
