18 Feb 2014, 12:43 pm

Weather map are lighting up for the end of the week. Take a look at the forecast through AM Thursday and note the large storm centered near Kansas City, MO by AM Thursday. This classic spring storm will have heavy snow/blizzard potential on its northwest flank, while strong to severe thunderstorms will begin to flourish on its eastern flank by Thursday afternoon/evening.

Here’s a higher resolution look at the storm potential by 7pm Thursday. At this point, heavy snow will be ongoing across parts of the Midwest/Great Lakes while strong to severe thunderstorms will be rumbling across the Ohio and Tennessee River Valleys.

The National Weather Service has already issued winter weather headlines for heavy snow/blizzard potential across the Midwest on Thursday. I expected more winter weather headlines to be issued as Thursday nears, stay tuned!

5 Day Precipitation Forecast

Heavy precipitation is expected in spots along and east of the Mississippi River Valley through the early weekend. Unfortunately, this may lead to flooding concerns across parts of the Ohio Valley as rapid snow melt will be accompanying this heavy rain.
