    Severe weather will develop along the warm front initially in Texas and once the cold front starts to plow east across western Texas, we should see a line of storms developing along the front. Given the EHI values and dew points, wind damage and hail will be the primary impacts, although a few tornadoes may occur from the Waco down to south of San Antonio late in the day. That band of storms will move east and could hit the Houston area early Wednesday. Again, hail and damaging winds will be the primary impacts.

    The second storm will move into the Plains this weekend and that storm could produce a band of snow from Colorado to Minnesota/Wisconsin. The storm that will move out of Texas will be a rainmaker all the way to the Great Lakes and Northeast, although a few spots in the Northeast will probably have some ice and sleet on on the front end of the rain. We are going to lose a lot of the snowcover east of the Rockies this weekend and into the weekend before the cold spell returns later next week.

    With the NAO heading to negative and the PNA going to positive around mid-month, there's some potential wild winter weather coming to the East in the later half of January.
