Winter Storm Threat Gradually Moving to the North-Central United States! (credit: North Platte, Nebraska)
DISCUSSION: Over the next 24 to 48 hours an increasing winter storm threat will be ushered into the north-central United States. This increasing winter storm threat will a result of the current low pressure system which is delivering a complex winter blast to the central/south-central United States. The majority of the current impacts which include (but are not limited to) snow, some sleet, freezing rain, and rain will be moving into the north-central United States over the next couple of days as this low pressure system gradually lifts northward with time. As you can denote from the graphic above (courtesy of the National Weather Service office located in North Platte, Nebraska, the evolution of this upcoming winter storm for this part of the country will be an array of freezing rain, snow, and then tapering off gradually by early/mid Monday afternoon as this incoming low pressure system pulls out of the north-central United States. As always, when the weather goes down-hill, avoid travelling as much as you can!
