Above - today's severe threat of weather covering Ohio Valley down through lower Mississippi Valley. Tan area indicates strongest threat. Below...weather map and how it coincides with severe threat.
Early a.m. satellite and radar showing bands of moisture working from southwest to northeast.
One of the only models to forecast an alberta clipper for the East on Friday with a little snow is the GFS. Below..that model. At this time..we believe it may outsmart most of the models. Be safe.
Storm in Great Lakes heads into Canada and drags it's cold front to East coast by Saturday night. Severe thunderstorms are possible today over the Ohio Valley...outlook below shows best chances over Ohio.
Above - today's map . Wintry Mix for Great Lakes - severe weather Ohio Valley.

Above - how daytime temperatures will average through March 3. From The Plains to East Coast - warmer than normal..... colder than normal western third.
Above - upper air pattern 10-11 days out. Light green lines show the upper air winds. The dotted red lines show how much above the norm the pressure is in that area....while the light blue line show how much below normal they are. This pattern will bring back dry weather to the West Coast - and colder and more frequent bouts of precip to The East. March does not look inviting at this time. Be safe.
