WINTER STORM PRODUCING HEAVY MOUNTAIN SNOW ACROSS CENTRAL WYOMING.... (credit: NWS Riverton, Wyoming)
DISCUSSION: As the next high-impact low-pressure system is ramping up across the Central Plains, intense winter storm conditions are being felt across parts of the intermountain west (e.g., parts of Central and Eastern Wyoming). On the side of the story, the Great Plains region is gearing up for what will likely be a very prolific severe weather event over the next 24 to 48 hours across states such as Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Texas, Nebraska, Iowa, and Arkansas. The primary threats will include a large potential for damaging winds and large hail as well as a few strong tornadoes (though based on widespread vertical wind profiles, none of them are expected to be long-lived).
