Severe Storms In Parts Of The Plains Today As Winter Storm Develops

Hello everyone!

Here are the three things you need to know about today’s weather:

  1. SNOW will develop in Montana today as an early season winter storm gets going. For details on this system and its impacts, check out my blog post from last evening.
  2. SEVERE STORMS will develop on the southern side of this system this afternoon. The focus for severe storms will be in SW Nebraska though parts of far NW Kansas and NE Colorado are likely to get in on the action too. Initially discrete cells will merge into a line later this evening as the whole system gets kicked east. Early in the day, discrete cells will pose threats for damaging winds, large hail, and tornadoes. The line of storms that develops later in the day will pose more of a damaging wind threat.
  3. A TROPICAL LOW will continue to bring gusty showers to NE Florida. No development of this system into a tropical cyclone is expected, but impacts in NE Florida will be similar to those brought by a weak TS.

Elsewhere across the country, generally quiet weather is expected.
