A whole week of storms for the eastern United States?
Tomorrow won't warm up much in the afternoon with highs struggling to hit 50. Then tomorrow night as a weak storm system moves down from Canada we could see some flurries. I'll decide tomorrow whether or not I want to up the chances.
The weekend looks very quiet with no major storms anywhere.
Then on Monday a storm will quickly develop in the south-central region. Snow will move into eastern Colorado, western Kansas, western Nebraska and the panhandle of Oklahoma Monday night into Tuesday morning. The snow will become very heavy Tuesday afternoon and will continue throughout the night and won't starrt to slow down until Wednesday morning. This will be accompanied by strong winds resulting in a blizzard. When all is said and done I expect 1-2 feet of snow with localized amounts of up to 3 feet in Northwestern Kansas.
While this is happening a severe weather outbreak is likely in the red areas. Shear will be high, there will be plenty of moisture and the instability will be rather high. What sets this potential severe event apart from the one yesterday in Iowa is that there will be more warm air and more instability. There is still a lot of monitoring to do on this severe event so I will be keeping you updated on all the changes in the coming days.
As the cold front moves east it will bring us some rain Thursday into Friday and then it will likely stall. The cold front will sit over us Friday through Sunday bringing us some rain. The models are indicating that some type of storm (type unknown), could ride along this cold front Sunday into Wednesday. If the cold front stays stalled out over us then we could see a major storm for Thanksgiving week. But if it starts to move east then any storm will get pushed harmlessly out to sea. We will just have to wait and see what happens.
