Winter storm remains on track to move from the Rockies into the Plains today, rapidly intensifying by this evening. This system will produce a variety of weather, including heavy rain and snow, possibly some ice, and severe storms. The highest snow totals tonight will come in western and central NE, with some getting 6 or more inches with lower amounts around an inch or two further north and west into western SD and eastern MT. Severe storms are possible on the warm side of this system, developing as early as late this afternoon in southeast TX and southeast OK with chances increasing further east into the lower Mississippi River Valley into the evening and overnight.
Unsettled weather continues in the west with rain and snow chances continuing. The heaviest snow this time will be in the Cascades from northern CA to southwestern WA, otherwise, rain for places along I-5 from Seattle to Redding.
