Snowstorms, Severe Weather: Active Week Ahead

Chris Dolce,Nick Wiltgen Published: Feb 18, 2013, 3:57 PM EST weather.com

Active Jet Stream Pattern

Overlay

Severe Storms Brewing

There will be plenty of stormy weather to track in the coming week to 10 days.
Significant snowfall, rain and thunderstorms are all expected as an active jet stream propels two -- and more likely, three -- storm systems across the country.
We'll start with the early week system already in progress, which will be followed immediately by a major named storm, and then another significant storm early next week.

Early Week: Northern Blizzard, Southern Severe

The first storm has already packed a punch with blizzard conditions in the Upper Midwest on Monday.
Parts of Interstate 29 in northeast North Dakota and Interstate 94 in northwest Minnesota were closed on Monday due to whiteout conditions and accidents. Snow will spread into northern Wisconsin and northern Michigan Monday night.
Meanwhile, thunderstorms, some severe, began firing across eastern parts of Oklahoma and Texas on Monday afternoon, and these will spread east through Monday night with the primary threats being damaging winds and large hail. However, a small number of tornadoes will be a possibility.
(MORE: Severe Storm Forecast)
The cold front will head east on Tuesday, bringing the potential of rainfall from New York City and Washington, D.C. to Atlanta and Tallahassee.
With just enough cold air in place, snow will be possible across interior portions of the Northeast and into New England. In addition, colder air wrapping in behind the low-pressure system will bring some snow, including lake-enhanced snow, to parts of the Great Lakes.
The colder air will be particularly biting in the Upper Midwest, where some places may suffer through subzero highs on Tuesday. There will also be extremely dangerous wind chills Monday night and Tuesday morning, especially in eastern North Dakota and northern Minnesota where it will feel like 30 below to 45 below zero Tuesday morning.
As that system pushes out to sea by Wednesday, we turn our attention to a pair of major storm systems down the road.
