A storm system currently crossing the central Rockies will accelerate northeastward, reaching the Great Lakes region early Friday. For the remainder of Thursday, the threat of severe thunderstorms—containing high winds, large hail, and isolated tornadoes—will shift from the southern Plains into the Midwest. Heavy rain will accompany the thunderstorms, with totals of 1 to 2 inches or more possible across a broad area covering much of the South and Midwest. Meanwhile, wind-driven snow could result in substantial livestock stress in western Nebraska and portions of neighboring states. By late Thursday, snow will briefly spread across parts of the upper Midwest and the upper Great Lakes region. In the storm’s wake, cold air will engulf the Plains, Midwest, and Northeast. Late-week minimum temperatures could range from 15 to 25° as far south as the southern High Plains. Elsewhere, mostly dry weather will prevail during the next 5 days across Florida’s peninsula, while unsettled, showery weather will return early next week across much of the western U.S.
