Good early morning Weather Watchers!

We wanted to show you the development of the system that will affect the Central US today, so here it is….Conditions as of 4am

 Very deep moisture for November standards was streaming North from the Gulf of Mexico. Dewpoints in Eastern OK and KS were in the upper 50s and lower 60s. 
The area of Low pressure was forming over West Central KS and was already at 996mb as of 4am.

A dryline was setting up, represented in brown out ahead of the Low- it separates the dryer are from the moisture.  As this system begins to move East/Northeast throughout the day the dryline is where Severe Storms will fire – our best guess is around noon right along the KS/MO border. In the meantime the area of Low pressure will begin to deepen-that along with the strong winds in the atmosphere will increase winds in most areas of KS. The cold front should reach the I-135 corridor around 10am-12pm. Once the cold front moves through your area, winds will become very strong out of the Northwest with FALLING TEMPS INTO THE MID 40s by afternoon.

Here is what to expect Wind wise for today into early evening… A VERY IMPRESSIVE WIND PRODUCER…. It might not seem like much right now… As the sun rises, things will rapidly change…

** Blizzard Warning – expect near white-out conditions in NE Colorado, SW Nebraska and NW Kansas making travel near impossible as the deformation area (comma head) develops. 1-3 inch totals are possible in the WARNED AREA along with 50mph winds. Higher snowfall amounts are possible further North and West into NE and CO. Travel should resume to normal late tonight into Thursday morning along the I-70 corridor.

 This system will affect many people across the country–around 1/5th of our population in a short amount of time…..
 A significant killing FREEZE will occur in the Central Plains Thursday night.

Lows in the Mid 20s are likely.

Another potential significant storm system should develop by early next week affecting the Central/Southern Plains….stay tuned…
