  • Not one but two storms to watch today

    Good morning everyone! 

    Weather has been fairly quiet, but things are changing today with two separate storms bringing very different conditions.  The first is a very spring like storm that has brought over 5 inches of rain to Texas yesterday.  Another 1-4 inches is possible across the Mississippi Valley up into the Ohio Valley. 

    Not only will we see the threat of flooding, but severe weather is also possible along the Gulf Coast with  damaging winds, hail and isolated tornadoes.

    Across the West, a big winter storm pushes in bringing heavy snow, strong wind and blizzard conditions over the Intermountain west, Rockies and northern Plains. 

    Some areas could get 2 feet of snow in the mountains.

    Meanwhile, warm temperatures will make it feel like spring for the central plains into the east coast over the next few days.  Some areas will see temperatures soar 20 degrees above average before the next blast of cold air moves in.  Here in New York, we’ll be pushing 60 degrees this weekend!   We’re already planning out Saturday and Sunday outdoors!  A nice little taste of spring before the next blast of cold air moves in next week.

    Have a great Thursday everyone!

The expected high here for Sunday has been raised to 74. My heating bill will love it.

Rainy and gray again today in MySouth. We're expecting those Spring-like storms. Could get up to 4 inches of rain in the next few days. I'm okay with the rain, it's the tornado warnings I get a little antsy about. Great news, Margie, on your check-up. Don, do so wish Hopkins could get to you sooner. Hoping all goes well once they do. Three of my g-kids have been with us since 1/2. I'm pooped, but always glad when they are with us. They are such little jewels! Y'all have a great day! :)

Just watched your report on Happening Now. Couldn't help but remember 38 years ago today (January 10, 1975). A tornado destroyed a large portion of my home town, McComb,in southwest Mississippi including my home!! Pray McComb is not hurt today!!!!

same old overcast, gray day here. I feel for all you fine people down south and in the mid section of the country. how can it be one day the Mississippi is very low due to drought and a few days later flood warnings go up? It is nuts! Be safe, be healthy.
