Good Monday to one and all. February is slowly winding down and the month looks to go out on a rather noisy note. We have a heck of a storm system impacting much of the country over the next several days. This will bring a blizzard to the northern plains and should bring severe weather to parts of the Ohio and Tennessee River Valleys.
Let’s start out with some good news and that’s the weather we have out there today. Temps will make a run into the upper 50s and low 60s for many areas. Skies will be partly sunny and our winds will kick up a bit.
Tuesday sees our weather becoming more active. Moisture will slowly increase from southwest to northeast as the big plains storm begins to take shape. Temps will really take off across the south and will slowly rise toward the low 60 in the north by late in the day. That’s also when some scattered storm action may begin to go up. Once it gets going… it may crank up the volume level even more into Wednesday.
Take a look at the storm action from the GFS…
- We will have the threat for strong or severe thunderstorms from Tuesday night into Wednesday.
- High winds will likely be with us regardless of how strong the storms get. Gusts to 40mph may be noted.
- The same run of the GFS shows the repeat shower and thunderstorm action putting down some very heavy rain totals…
As I said earlier… February isn’t going to go out quietly.
I will have another update later today, so check back. Have a great Monday and take care.
