Plains, Upper Midwest Gear Up for Winter Storm Wesley

Potential Winter Storm For SE Wyoming Wednesday

"Nebraska doesn't need any more moisture right now, and this is going to be a fairly wet system". The hazardous conditions could impact the morning and evening commutes.

Whether flooding might occur and where is yet to be seen.

According to the National Weather Service, a period of mixed precipitation is likely through Thursday morning.

MnDOT officials said the good news is the salt is expected to be effective given the pavement is warmer in the cities. The biggest threat will remain along the already swollen Missouri River, he said.

Two factors may limit the flooding, forecasters said. But, since the crests of Twin Cities rivers on April 1, those waters have been going down.

Because most of the U.S. Plains, High Plains, and Upper Midwest winter snow has melted, a major factor for the current storms is how fast this current snow will melt. It's a technical term, and while meteorologists could be understandably a bit exhausted of answering bomb cyclone questions, the storm coming in Wednesday is worth thinking about in advance.

The storm deemed "potentially historic" by the Weather Prediction Center brings the specter of renewed flooding to a part of the country where massive flooding over the past month has caused billions of dollars in damage.

The royals have used gynaecologists, Alan Farthing and Guy Thorpe-Beeston, who specialise in high-risk births, in the past. It did leave a few of us a little baffled'.

The timing of the arrival of that cold air will be one of several key features that will determine if and how much snow we see along the urban corridor Wednesday afternoon and night.

There also are high wind warnings in parts of western Colorado and a blizzard warning for eastern Colorado toward Kansas.

This heavy snow, possibly starting out as rain, is likely to fall over areas still suffering flooding from last month's bomb cyclone and melting snow over the past few weeks, including the flood-ravaged Missouri Valley.

Snow totals are likely to be higher farther south and west, with 14 inches expected in Hinckley and 15 in Brainerd.

If that wasn't enough, there is even a chance of severe thunderstorms ahead of the storm Wednesday and Thursday in parts of the Midwest, possibly extending into the East Friday. The worst of the winds are forecast for Thursday.

In Sioux Falls, rain will develop tonight and continue through most of tomorrow with rain mixing with and changing to snow late tomorrow night into Thursday morning.

He said the hardest part of the snowstorm to accept might be that recent warm weather has lulled people into thinking that winter is over. "But now it's back again, with a vengeance".
