Late Winter Weather System Brings Mixed Bag to Middle of the Country

by Jamie Robinson        March 8, 2011  |  12:31 pm  |  Category: Latest News

A late winter weather system is causing quite a mess across the middle of the United States.  Parts of Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and the UP of Michigan are in Winter Storm Watches/Warnings for today and tonight.  Snow accumulations are expected to be between 3 and 9 inches across these areas. 

At the same time, parts of Louisiana and Mississippi are under a moderate risk of severe weather today/tonight.  Any parts of several other states show a slight risk of severe weather.   

Much of the southeastern part of the U.S. is already under flood watches or warnings.  Residents in these areas should prepare for additional flooding as a result of this new system pushing through. 

As always, you can get up-to-minute radar, watches, warnings, severe weather outlooks and storm reports with Weather Defender and its sophisticated layering system.  You're in control.  You can see as much or as little as you'd like.  You can create maps for different situations.  For example, you may want a map that only shows watches/warnings/advisories.  This can be much less congested than map showing this information along with radar imaging.  You could then have a map that shows current radar along with active warnings only.  You could then add a layer to track storm attributes (hail, storm paths, etc...).
