After a quiet start to the week, the Plains will get a big spring storm, and it could lead to severe weather and several inches of snowfall.
A winter storm watch was issued on Monday afternoon for parts of Wyoming, South Dakota and Nebraska. This is in place for Wednesday and Thursday, and it’s part of the next big storm set to impact the region.
On the warm side of this storm, several days of heavy rain and severe weather could impact Texas and Oklahoma, starting on Tuesday. Heavy rain will likely also accompany these storms.
A potent storm over California is expected to move out into the Plains on Tuesday into Wednesday, bringing with it plenty of upper-level energy. That same storm will also tap into moisture out of the Gulf of Mexico, leading to lots of moisture moving through the southern and central Plains states.
The storm will slowly move east by the end of the week, but not before leaving several inches of snow and a couple of days of strong-to-severe thunderstorms in its wake.
