    Ice and Wintry Mix... Severe Storms... Next Week's Storm

    Commentary

    The immediate issue is the severe weather heading into Florida today. Radar is already showing a bowing squall lining north of Key West as of this writing at 11 a.m. The bowing line of storms should run across South Florida with heavy rains and locally damaging wind gusts.

    The next problem will be the icy wintry mix across the western Carolinas tonight. This is another rare event given the time of the year. There will be enough ice tonight into midday Friday before temperatures rise above freezing. I expect dangerous travel and even some power outages.

    Next week's storm is going to be another headache. Models are going from a weak wave of low pressure to a mega-storm moving up the East coast. PNA will be positive and NAO going neutral which would argue for a storm, but how strong and where is yet to be determined.
