Posted on 02/11/2007 5:58:30 AM PST by John W
Today is definitely the calm before the storm as the North Central Regional Radar shows that the Midwest is generally quiet to end the weekend. A cold front, however, will deliver light snow from eastern Nebraska to northern Michigan today. Areas from Iowa to southern Michigan and northern Ohio will receive up to a few inches of powdery snow from the front tonight.
As a storm pushes through the Rockies, a bit of snow will start falling over the central Plains with some rain and wintry weather over Kansas and northern Missouri tonight. The snow will become more widespread from the northern High Plains to the Ohio Valley on Monday as the clash of cold air to the north and warm and moist air to the south allows the storm to strengthen over the southern Plains on Monday.
According to our Winter Weather Center, snow amounts will be significantly higher over areas just south of lakes Michigan and Erie Monday into Tuesday as snow falls along the northern, then western fringe of the storm. Winter Storm Watches are already in place from southeastern Nebraska to southwestern Pennsylvania and the Maryland Panhandle where 6 to 12 inches of snow will come down by the end of Tuesday.
Snowfall totals will significantly lower to the south of the heaviest band of snow due to warmer air causing the snow to either start out as or mix with rain or icy weather.
On Valentine's Day, the storm will be dumping a significant amount of snow across the Northeast. With the storm and its snow to the east, a cold dome of high pressure will calm, but chill the majority of the Midwest. The frigid air blowing over the Great Lakes will send more bands of lake-effect snow downwind of the lakes.
Wonderful...and U.Va. will continue to operate on a normal schedule.
Time to break out the snow boots!
Brrrr! This has been one cold month in Illinois.
November baby boom added to forecast?
Actually We could use the snow for insulation here in southern Mi.
That is all.
I hope central PA gets something out of this. We didn't get jack this year. I hate winters without snow.
Time to break out the snow boots!
LOL! Sounds like you've already "been there, done that"!
looks like southern Indiana, ohio, and Kentucky is going to get it monday night/tuesday
Oh, and I almost forgot. All this cold snap is due to global warming, which is because I have five kids, and a snowblower, and an SUV, because I live in an evil capitalist country that doesn't care about the planet, because the Democrats haven't been in power for a while, because we are all greedy and evil... yea, I almost forgot.
You left out, "It's all Bush's fault!"
I'll take the snow ;)
Oh, that's right. It's Bush's fault. I did forget that.
We only have about 2 inches at best. Most of it fell sideways at 40mph
We've had below normal temps since late January here in northern Alabama and the forecast is for it to remain (except for the next couple of days) for the rest of the month.
Hey neighbor! I'm in Lynchburg. I work in Northern Virginia 3 days a week. I'll wave to you as I slide through C-ville this week.
It will snow in Maryland! How much? Can't say, but it will..how do I know? - Monday's my birthday - almost always snows on or within a day of...
The Civil War was Bush's fault too!!!!
fingers crossed for a plow day! :)
As they fine tune this thing it doesn't look good here in north central Indiana.
Happy Early Birthday wishes!
That's one helluva commute! I'm sure you already know about the speed traps galore on 29. :P
