Big Story Weather – April 9, 2012
Red Orbit Meteorologist Joshua Kelly
Big Story Weather from April 8, 2012: This past weekend we saw some severe weather move through Western Texas this time with, large hail and also a few tornadoes. Also on the cold side of the map we saw some frost and freezing conditions slide back into the northern part of the United States. Also, snowflakes were spotted in Maine.
Big Story Weather for April 9, 2012: High pressure building in from Canada will continue to bring with it some cool to cold conditions throughout the Northern Plains and then expanding over towards the Great Lakes and Northeast. All of these areas do have frost/freeze watches and warnings in effect for the next couple of days. The other area of concern is down in the panhandle of Texas and Oklahoma where we find our next frontal system pushing into the area. Today the potential is there to see isolated tornadoes along with strong winds and large hail in this region. Outside of that the weather map is pretty tranquil for today. Look for partly cloudy skies to expand from the Mid-Atlantic all the way down into the Southeast and along the Gulf Coast. The western portion of the United States will also be nice with mild temps for most areas.
Big Story Weather Outlook International: Over in Europe a frontal boundary extending down through the region will be responsible for bringing with it a few isolated showers through Spain and England. Japan and Korea both look to have a fairly nice day in between pressure systems, look for partly to mostly cloudy skies. Low pressure moving through central Siberia will be responsible for bringing with it snow showers to a vast area should remain on the light side. High pressure and warm conditions will be found throughout the Middle East. A strong high pressure center to the south of mainland Australia will influence the entire country with partly to mostly cloudy skies and another nice fall day. The science bases down in Antarctica will be dealing with moderate snowfall and strong winds today.
