Good morning bloggers,
Tonight on 41 Action News we have two special segments with Toby Tobin, one at 6 PM and the second at 10 PM. And, then Monday night at 10 PM is our spring forecast. We will be showing our severe weather calendar as it appears we are going to have a somewhat active severe weather season in our viewing area.
On Monday night we opened the discussion about a fantasy snowstorm that was beginning to be predicted by the computer models. At that time I thought we had a pretty good chance of having a winter storm early next week. Unless something changes significantly it now appears the winter part of next week’s storm will be way to the north. Here is how it has looked day by day:
- 7 Days out…….29 degrees and 1 foot of snow
- 6 Days out…….49 degrees with rain
- 5 Days out…….50s to near 60 Monday with a cold front & rain showers. Cold air moves in with a few snow showers or flurries and a temperature drop into the 20s Wednesday. A disorganized storm on this model run!
- 4 Days out…….A cold front blows through Tuesday evening. One band of showers, possibly a few thunderstorms and a temperature surge to 65 degrees on Tuesday ahead of the cold front, maybe even warmer. The snowstorm develops over the far northern plains as the winter effects from this storm system go way to the north. If you are wondering about severe weather with this system think about how low the dew points are forecast to be. They may inch into the upper 40s which just isn’t enough moisture.
