RedOrbit Meteorologist Joshua Kelly
Big Story Weather from April 16, 2012: Yesterday saw snow flying in Northern Minnesota and I am afraid that is not the end of the snow yet, possibly more to come for some Northern Cities. A few strong t-storms around the Texas Gulf Coast led to hail and strong winds.
Big Story Weather News for April 17, 2012: Mostly cloudy skies will be found for the majority of the Eastern seaboard today with temps in the 70´s south and upper 50´s north. The frontal boundary continues to stall out over the Gulf Coast again today moving ever so slowly, bringing with it showers and t-storms, but we are not expecting much in the way of severe weather with it. However, you may see heavy rain and isolated reports of small hail. High pressure moving in over the Great Lakes will make for a nice day over the entire Great Lakes region. The Pacific frontal system has moved out into the Northern Plains which will bring with it light rain and snow for places in North Dakota. The rest of the west will be partly to mostly cloudy through the day.
Big Story Weather Outlook International: A weak area of high pressure will influence the weather through the Korea´s and Japan with partly cloudy skies and mild temps. High pressure will also be in control of the weather over the Middle East which will lead to very warm conditions today. A strong low pressure system over England will bring rain showers to Western Europe for today will also snow in the Alps. Another dry day for Australia with high pressure to the southeast of the region. Look for some snow showers in McMurdo station with the approaching low pressure system.
Big Story Weather Tropics: Another quiet day can be found throughout the tropics from North to South and East to West. Countdown to the start of the Atlantic Hurricane Season 2012 is right around the corner.
