Current states effected and that will be impacted in some way by this system over the next several hours from now 730pm CDT 4/15/2012 are listed below : The current large storm is pressing ENE towards the great lakes…
The back end of the storm is pulling down cold air / strong cell thunderstorms / damaging winds and SNOW into Texas, New Mexico — I don’t know if the NEXT LINE of storms being pulled down from the pacific northwest (currently over colorado ) will produce additional severe weather, or if it will spin up ITSELF into a new small low pressure system.
Also, on the west coast.. Washington State, Oregon .. .another storm is peeling off the very large low pressure system parked out off the coast of Alaska… I think we will see this NEXT line of storms in a few days when this west coast system finally comes ashore. Possibly a repeat situation next week at some point.
Watch these states :
Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigian, South Dakota, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama , and Possibly Kansas, Nebraska again…. Also out west… California, Oregon, Idaho — the next storm will be coming ashore soon.
