Severe storm moves out...

Hi everyone.

Hope you’re all safe after a very nasty few days across the over half the country!

The storm system that brought over 600 reports of severe weather including close to 2 dozen tornadoes is now moving out of the Northeast.  


Wind gusts of up to  50 mph are possible from the Midatlantic to the Northeast. 



Behind this storm system, temperatures will drop in some cases 30 degrees in less than 12 hours. 


Windchill advisories are up for parts of the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest where it will feel 20-50 degrees below zero at times. 


And snow behind the storm will pile up across the Great Lakes with over a foot possible through Saturday.


Much of the west will be quiet with cooler temperatures for many with exception to parts of the southwest.  Some snow and rain showers for the Northern Rockies as well and the Northwest Coast.

So that’s what’s happening for now.  My youngest son Theodore has the flu, so we’ve been juggling work with taking care of him.  Hard to be away from your kids when they are not feeling well.  Thankfully, he seems to be on the mend this morning.  

I’ll post an open blog tomorrow for the weekend.

Take care everyone.
