Early Winter Storm, Central Plains Severe Threat, Picture Perfect East Coast Sep 27, 2013

Mountain Snow

A powerful winter storm system has brought a blast of snow to the Inter Mountain West this week.  This was the first snow of the season for the Sun Valley area.

Snow totals from Montana:

With this recent storm, now 3.7% of the nation is covered in snow.  This is the highest amount of snow coverage at this point in the year since these types of records began in 2003.

Winter Storm Warnings and Advisories remain in effect for portions of Wyoming, Colorado, and Utah for the first part of the day today.  This system moves out this afternoon and snow tapers off.

Central Plains Severe Threat

Temperatures and dewpoints rising across the central plains ahead of the system moving into the region.

A strong wind is driving up temperatures and those humidity levels, all helping to set the stage for the potential for severe storms this afternoon.

Threat area for today stretches from north central Nebraska to northwest Texas.

Picture Perfect Weekend

Fall foliage is peaking in the Northeast and the weather couldn’t be better. Highs in the 60s and 70s with plenty of sunshine.

We want your photos! As you’re out and about this weekend, send us your weather photos. Include your name and the location that the picture was taken and we may include it in our fall photo spotlight!

Friday Forecast

The nation is divided today with the colder than average temperatures in the West and the warmer than average temperatures in the East.

Sunny skies extend from the Northeast to the Southeast, while the Central US and the West remains more unsettled.  A tremendous amount of rain will be moving into the Northwest throughout the next few days as well.  (This is actually tapping into moisture left over from the remnants of Typhoon Usagi).

 Happy Friday!
