It’s been quite the couple of weeks for pre-winter snowstorms in the center of the country and that trend doesn’t seem to want to stop as we head into the first weekend of December. A large low-pressure system developing over the central Plains right now looks like it’s on track to bring significant snows to the Plains and Midwest through the end of this weekend. Some areas could be pushing 18-20 inches of snow by the end of the storm.

The storm responsible for the impending thump of snow is the same one causing the dangerous severe weather outbreak tonight and Saturday across some of the southern states, including the risk for tornadoes, damaging winds, and very large hail. The juxtaposition of severe weather to the south and near-blizzard conditions to the north is pretty common in big storms that develop in the late fall and early winter.

We could be looking at a long-duration snowfall event with this storm. This won’t be one of those storms where it rages for six hours and it’s over. Some towns could see steady snow for two days.

Precipitation will likely change over from rain to snow during the overnight hours between Friday and Saturday. The heaviest snow will start cranking early Saturday morning across the Plains and spread east through parts of Iowa and Minnesota through Saturday evening. The snow will taper off from west to east through the day on Sunday as the low moves toward the Great Lakes. While the snow will continue through Sunday, the heaviest snow—coinciding with the peak of the low-pressure system’s strength—will occur on Saturday.

The latest forecast from NOAA’s Weather Prediction Center shows a pretty big bullseye of more than a foot of snow across the central Plains, mainly focused on sparsely populated parts of Nebraska and South Dakota. Some of these areas could easily see more than a foot-and-a-half of snow, and it’s not uncommon in a scenario like this for someone to crack two feet if they get stuck under a heavier band.

This storm will have a fairly large extent of snowfall totals exceeding six inches, which is denoted by the dark blue shading on the map above. Rapid City, South Dakota, could stand to see a foot of snow by the end of the storm on Saturday, and cities like Pierre, Sioux Falls, Grand Island, and North Platte could see enough snow to disrupt everyday life through the end of the weekend.

More snow this weekend will add to the already-hefty totals the central United States has seen this fall. This snowstorm will fill in many of the gaps that exist in the center of the country on the seasonal snowfall map through November28 It’s unusual to see this much snow so early in the season, but it’s not necessarily an omen of what to expect as we head deeper into the winter months.

(****************************** )It’s been rather the couple of weeks for pre-winter snowstorms in the center of the nation which pattern does not appear to wish to stop as we head into the very first weekend of December. A big low-pressure system establishing over the main Plains today appears like it’s on track to bring substantial snows to the Plains and Midwest through completion of this weekend. Some locations might be pressing 18-20 inches of snow by the end of the storm.

The storm accountable for the upcoming thump of snow is the exact same one triggering the hazardous serious weather condition break out tonight and Saturday throughout a few of the southern states, consisting of the threat for twisters, harmful winds, and huge hail. The juxtaposition of serious weather condition to the south and near-blizzard conditions to the north is quite typical in huge storms that establish in the late fall and early winter season.

We might be taking a look at a long-duration snowfall occasion with this storm. This will not be among those storms where it raves for 6 hours and it’s over. Some towns might see stable snow for 2 days.

Rainfall will likely alter over from rain to snow throughout the over night hours in between Friday and Saturday. The heaviest snow will begin cranking early Saturday early morning throughout the Plains and spread out east through parts of Iowa and Minnesota through Saturday night. The snow will lessen from west to east through the day on Sunday as the low approach the Fantastic Lakes. While the snow will continue through Sunday, the heaviest snow– accompanying the peak of the low-pressure system’s strength– will happen on Saturday.

The most recent projection from NOAA’s Weather Condition Forecast Center reveals a quite huge bullseye of more than a foot of snow throughout the main Plains, primarily concentrated on sparsely inhabited parts of Nebraska and South Dakota. A few of these locations might quickly see more than a foot-and-a-half of snow, and it’s not unusual in a situation like this for somebody to break 2 feet if they get stuck under a much heavier band.

This storm will have a relatively big level of snowfall overalls going beyond 6 inches, which is signified by the dark blue shading on the map above. Rapid City, South Dakota, might stand to see a foot of snow by the end of the storm on Saturday, and cities like Pierre, Sioux Falls, Grand Island, and North Platte might see adequate snow to interrupt daily life through completion of the weekend.

More snow this weekend will contribute to the already-hefty overalls the main United States has actually seen this fall. This snowstorm will fill out a lot of the spaces that exist in the center of the nation on the seasonal snowfall map through November28 It’s uncommon to see this much snow so early in the season, however it’s not always a prophecy of what to anticipate as we head much deeper into the cold weather.
