It has been stressed over and over that this is a very stormy time of year,
so what we are experiencing now is not unusual. A bit crazy maybe, but
definitely not unusual. The stormy pattern is in response to the growing warmth
across the South and the residual cold that still exists across the north. This
forces larger temperature gradients, which are reflected in larger differences
in air pressure. The pressure gradient causes the air to move, and this is how
storms get born.
The latest in a series of big storms will track right across the heart of
the nation this weekend, causing blizzard conditions from eastern Wyoming into
Nebraska and southern South Dakota. Next week, this same storm will have a huge
bearing on the weather in the Eastern part of the country.
