Big storm set to rock the plains!

Hi All!

We’re busy this week.  Another winter storm is getting its act together across the U.S., and this time much of the country will feel the effects of snow, wind, ice and the potential for severe weather including tornadoes.


Here are the states under winter weather advisories:



Parts of the Plains will see 18-24 inches of snow.  There is also the risk of ice across portion of northern Arkansas into Missouri and Oklahoma.  Ice storm warnings are posted here, but they could extend north and east though the day today.


And here’s the risk for severe weather.  The highest potential for tornadoes will be tomorrow afternoon.


And if that weren’t enough, we’re also tracking the possibility for another big Nor’easter this weekend hitting the SAME areas that got socked with 2-3 feet of snow a few weeks ago.  Winter ain’t over by a long shot.

We’ll keep you posted!   Stay tuned!
