US Short Range Weather to Apr 11

***Major Winter Storm Developing Over The Western Plains***

***Severe Weather For South Central U.S. Ahead Of Front***

***Very Warm For The Southeastern Quadrant Of The U.S.***

A Developing Low Pressure System Over The Inter-Mountain West Is
Expected To Bring A Plethora Of Interesting Weather Conditions
Across Much Of The Rockies And Western High Plains Through The
Middle Of The Week.

A Very Strong Cold Front Settling Southward Into The Central Rockies And Central High Plains Will Interact With A Strong Surface Low Tracking Eastward Into Texas And Oklahoma. This Is Expected To Result In A Significant Snowstorm For This Region.

Given A Strong Pressure Gradient Between A Strong Surface High To The North And The Surface Low To The South, Blizzard Conditions Are Likely Over Parts Of Wyoming, Colorado, Western Nebraska, And Western Kansas Beginning Late Tonight And Lasting Through Much Of The Day On Tuesday.

Another Facet Of This Storm System Will Be The Severe Weather
Threat Over The Southern Plains And Extending Eastward Towards The Mississippi River By Wednesday Evening. A Strong Influx Of Gulf
Moisture Combining With A Pronounced Baroclinic Zone Near The
Advancing Cold Front Will Create An Environment Favorable For
Strong To Severe Thunderstorms. Heavy Rainfall Is Also A Good
Possibility As This System Passes Through.

Farther East Over The Ohio Valley, Mid-Atlantic, And Southeast States, It Will Feel More Like Late May And Even Early June As Temperatures Will Rise Well Into The 80s For Many Areas Before The Cold Front Passes Through Late In The Week. However, The Northeast And Great Lakes Region Will Likely Remain North Of The Warm Front With This System, Thus Keeping The Cool Conditions In Place.
