Feels like winter across the West, spring over the East!

Happy Friday All!

A busy day in weather with a tale of two storms!  One side is the winter storm with bitter cold temperatures…the other side of the country has temperatures soaring over 25 degrees above average with rain and flooding!  Wacky!

So the “springlike” storm that brought close to a foot of rain and tornadoes across the Gulf Coast is pushing into the Ohio Valley and Great lakes bringing mainly rain to the region.

Meanwhile, a more potent winter storm across the west will bring close to 2 feet of snow, strong winds and blizzard conditions to many states.

Ahead of this western storm, temperatures will be close to 30 degrees above average with record highs forecast for many Midwest and southern states.  Behind the storm, temperatures will be 25 degrees below average.

Of course, what goes up must come down, so we won’t see those springtime highs for long!  Enjoy it while it’s here!

Hope you’re all doing well.   Get that flu shot if you haven’t already, and have a great weekend!
