"The Red Badge of.....Weather"
Red is the color today across the National Hazards Map.

Tuesday, 3/22/2011, 9:00 PM EDT


THERE ARE TORNADO WATCHES UNTIL 9PM CDT IN THE FOLLOWING STATES: IOWA, and MISSOURI.



A Major Winter Storm stretches across the North from Idaho through The Great Lakes. Bright red (Blizzard Warnings) can be found in North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Areas in the Northern Plains can expect over a foot of snow before it ends. Winter Storm Warnings are also posted in Utah and California.

Red Flag Warnings cover thousands of square miles in the West over a six-state area. Eight, when you add Florida, and Georgia.

South of the Winter weather, the danger color will be green, for Flood Statements as possible severe rain storms for parts of Iowa, Missouri, and Illinois will overwhelm already swollen streams with additional run-off from still-frozen ground.

This massive system is expected to move eastward into the Northern Mid-Atlantic and The Northeast, where icing could be a problem. (Advisor Lear)

There are several chances for accumulating snow and mix precip during the next week.  This time of year in this area they will be marginal, but if a system gets just strong enough and precip falls at night, we could be in business.  This weekend and early next week we really have a solid shot a slushy snow.  Everything has to go correct to get a plowable type snow, but it is possible in this upcoming set-up.
