Discussion

The next big player on the field in terms of storms is now affecting the southern Rockies and is heading towards the central Plains. This storm will reach the Upper Midwest later tomorrow and widespread heavy snowfall will be the result all the way from Denver, CO to Green Bay, WI. In fact, parts of the Upper Midwest will get more than a foot of snow and winds will whip to 50 mph on the back side of the low late tomorrow and tomorrow night with blowing and drifting. This same storm will push a strong cold front in our direction later Thursday night and the result here will be periods of rain, some of it heavy towards morning, and maybe even a rumble or two of thunder. Temperatures may drop during the day on Friday and winds will intensify and those strong winds will continue right through Saturday night. Snow showers are possible around here late Friday, Friday night and Saturday as the storm remains rather stationary in the Northeast US. There will be a significant “lake-effect” snow event on Friday and Saturday downwind of the eastern Great Lakes.
