    Severe Weather Across the South this Weekend

    9/18/2013, 6:05:14 AM

    Commentary

    The pattern this weekend will become interesting as the trough splits and forms a closed low across the South. The result of the trough split and the closed low will be severe storms cutting across the South on Friday to Sunday. There are some indications on the operational models that the storms could form into supercells and that tornadoes could occur. Otherwise, the storms will produce heavy rain, damaging winds and large hail. Flash flooding could be just as nasty in some areas.

    The pattern does not end there. The next trough cutting through the West could bring the first snow to the high country of Idaho, Utah, Wyoming and Colorado. There is a small chance that the storm that comes into the Plains actually forms across southeastern Colorado instead of northeastern Colorado. This will determine the difference between dry weather in the flood zones versus a cold rain and snow with a more southern storm track.
