Hail and Wind Gusts and Snow, Oh My! Mar 24, 2013

We’ve had some active storms across the country this weekend — it’s literally March Madness from a weather perspective. Major snowfall in the Central Plains on the northern side of a large low-pressure system kept us wintry, while warm air along the southern side of the storm fueled severe weather.

Let’s begin in the Southeast, with some hail reports from the past 24 hours:

We’ve seen some great photos of the hail coming down across the Southeast. Thanks to everyone who sent something in!

Gusty winds were pushing this storm along, and kicked up plenty of dust back into Texas. Here’s a video from our friends at Gil Lamb Advertising showing the dangerous lack of visibility on the roadways.

Here’s a few of the wind gusts in Texas that were not related to actual thunderstorm activity. A few of these qualify as Category 1 hurricane strength! Watch out for tumbleweeds — at those speeds, one might knock you over.

Finally, we have the snow across the Central Plains. Our seasons seem reluctant to shift from winter to spring, with over a foot of fresh snow in some regions of Kansas, and plenty more falling today through Missouri, Illinois, and into the Ohio Valley later tonight. Check out these totals from around the region:

These photos look more like December than March — look at all that snow! Did you snap a photo of the wintry weather? Send it in to us:

 Things remain cool to start the week across much of the Lower 48, but calmer weather settles in behind this storm system. Hopefully, things will start to melt soon with the increase in sunshine!

Have a great end to your weekend, and a pleasant start to your Monday! -Meteorologist Miranda Hilgers
