Big Story Weather from April 3, 2012: The biggest weather news from yesterday by far was the severe storms that moved through the Dallas-Fort Worth Metro area. As photos and videos are becoming more available today, we can see the large amount of damage that has occurred. This is why when severe weather is forecast for your area it is very important to take cover — it´s for your safety.
Big Story Weather for April 4, 2012: The strong frontal system that went through Dallas yesterday is now headed towards the Gulf Coast. It will bring more severe weather today to regions such as New Orleans and Biloxi, MS. The biggest threat today will be heavy rain, lightning, and large hail with strong damaging winds. There may be a few isolated tornadoes as well.
In the Northeast and Northern Plains, look for high pressure in Canada to influence the weather with partly to mostly cloudy skies,. Temps will be in the 60-70´s for most of the area.
The Southeast will be dealing with the frontal system moving through. All places to the east of the cold front can expect to see warm and muggy conditions today with temps in the mid 70´s to lower 80´s.
Northwest will begin to start drying out today as the frontal boundary has moved out into the Northern Rockies. Some places in Idaho and Western Montana will see snowfall amounts reach near 8 inches.
Big Story Weather Outlook International: Strong Low pressure continues to move northeastward away from Japan. Expect conditions to slowly improve over Japan and the Korea´s today. High pressure is beginning to build in along the coast of England. Look for conditions in Western Europe to become nice over the next couple of days with the high pressure. Australia should experience another nice fall day as high pressure is in control of the majority of the region. Also moving over into South America, high pressure will dominate the weather with partly to mostly cloudy skies throughout the continent. Light snow showers will still be possible for our friends down in McMurdo Station, Antarctica.
