Big Story Weather News for April 13, 2012: Today´s big story is going to be the severe weather. As we move through today look for the severe weather to start increasing. We are expecting a large amount of severe weather to stretch from Texas northward all the way into the Northern Plains. Large hail, strong winds, heavy rain and tornadoes will all be possible today throughout the entire region of the plains section. High pressure will influence the entire east coast bringing with it partly cloudy skies and mild conditions with temps in the lower 80´s in Florida and along the Gulf Coast. Expect to see cooler conditions in the Northeast as there is a Canadian High pressure center moving through the Great Lakes this weekend. Another frontal boundary is making its way onshore over Southern California which will bring mountain snows and valley rains to the region.
Big Story Weather Weekend Outlook: The major headline for this weekend is going to be the ongoing severe weather outbreak that is expected to cover a large area of the country. It will slowly shift eastward over the weekend and be along the Mississippi River valley by early next week bringing more severe weather. Be ready. This is probably going to be one of the largest outbreaks we have seen this year in regards to the amount of people that are going to be affected.
