A storm system in the U.S. West is expected to pose a triple threat to the country over the next three days, eventually bringing snow to the Southwest, a blizzard to the Central Plains, and severe storms to Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas, according to CNN's weather unit.
Portions of California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado, especially those at higher elevations, face winter storm conditions over the next 24 hours.
Then, the National Weather Service says portions of Kansas and Nebraska could see more than a foot of snow by Thursday. Meanwhile, significant ice buildup could make travel treacherous in the southern Plains. The weather service advises postponing travel until after the storm passes if possible.
Additionally, areas farther south including Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi, could see severe thunderstorms with possibly strong tornadoes from this weather system, CNN's weather unit says.
Later on in the week, the storm system could dump up to six inches of rain on areas from Mississippi to Georgia.
I hope we get snow here in Minneapolis.
I've been soooo enjoying our gorgeous weather in Cen-Tx, the past few days & now thunderstorms & tornados! Not good! The rain is the only upside to this! Buckle up, folks, gonna be a bumpy ride!!
So is Missouri, why doesnt the east coast remember that there is a state called Missouri? Guess what...there is another one called Iowa. Half-tush reporting
The east coast doesn't acknowledge the existence of anything outside their little bubble.. no worries.
It's like the Truman Show. They live their whole lives without knowing the real world outside of their cell universe. Fiji? Missouri?
As a Kansas resident all my life, I'll believe that we'll get a foot of snow this week when pigs fly. It's just an attempt to try and get ratings out of weather predictions.
Hey, There's this little place called Oklahoma between Kansas/Texas/Arkansas that you left out of your forecast.
These people have no sense of geography, no worries.
Maybe its because sales are down on snow shovels and rock salt? Lol j/k
and kansas I know seeing is believing anything is possible. so grab some winter coats and have a new england weather!
Just another example of the failed policies of the Obama administration.
