1. The severe weather today will be mainly across the South where storms may produce damaging winds, a few tornadoes and hail. Across the northern part of the area, storms will form along the cold front and warm front, and in both areas, the impacts will be mainly damaging winds and hail.
2. Snow continues to pile up across Minnesota. Up to a foot of snow will fall all the way through northern Wisconsin into the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
3. Another storm will move in next week and will bring snow to almost the same areas. Severe weather this time, I think, will be across the Ohio Valley and into the mid-Atlantic states as the trough will go negative this time.
4. Models are hinting at an interesting feature in the Gulf of Mexico this weekend. While not quite tropical in nature, the system may end up producing gales and heavy rain along the Gulf Coast Sunday.
