If you have been watching the weather lately you probably overheard us mention a potent storm system that's forecast to impact the Midwest on Friday.
The storm we are tracking is still located in the Gulf of Alaska and won't be sampled well until late Wednesday into Thursday. The track of the low remains uncertain between all computer models.
The European model takes a slower and more westerly track which would put the Heartland in a better position for severe storms on Friday. The NAM and GFS models show a similar track but the NAM is much faster than the GFS. If the low tracks directly overhead, the severe threat chance is greater to the east of the river across Iowa.
The main corridor for snow stays west of the Heartland and will impact parts of Colorado, northwest Nebraska, Wyoming and the Dakotas. Typically, we are in the game for snow if the air is cold enough and the low takes a northeasterly track to our south across Kansas City.
We'll keep you updated as we get new information in.
