The Midwest and Great Lakes will have more rainy weather Wednesday night andThursday.Earlier I was thinking about all the rain and severe weather that has beenhappening lately, and I have come to the conclusion that a good part of springis not very nice from about 40 degrees (latitude) north. It seems to me that agood part of it is the garbage season. In other words, a vast area from thecentral and northern Rockies to the Northeast continues to deal with the trashleftover from winter. Northern air masses are still cold, while tremendouswarming is occurring through the South. The clash between these two regimes cancause some real nasty weather at times.

This week alone, we've seen outbreaks of severe thunderstorms and tornadoesthrough the Central states, snow in the West and soaking rain in the East, andthere is more bad weather to come.

Wednesday night and Thursday, another storm will move out of the southernPlains into the Midwest. North of the track, there will be a cold rain, whileto the south, severe thunderstorms will run rampant.
