A powerful storm that develops in the central United States will bring the next round of severe weather to parts of the south on Saturday. Like last week’s deadly storms, the primary concern is the risk of severe weather, including any thorns. At the same time, in the north, snowstorm conditions are possible.

Storms had already produced gusts approaching 80 mph in western Texas early Saturday morning with at least 23 reports of injuries.

A severe thunderstorm was issued for parts of Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Kansas by 1

On Saturday afternoon, a tornado watch for Missouri, Arkans, Mississippi and Tennessee was issued. The warning will be in effect at least until 6 pm. ET.

New winter weather boards have also been issued for parts of the Northeast.

Heavy snow will move through Dakota’s morning hours on Saturday and will reach Minnesota and Iowa during the day. The snowfall reaches 1 to 2 per hour locally, with gusty winds.

In addition, severe weather will intensify and organize Saturday morning through parts of the south with fairly robust cells that form mainly in Louisiana, Arkansas and Missouri. Strong harmful winds, hail and any tornado are all possible.

But as the front moves into parts of Mississippi, Tennessee and Kentucky during the day, there is the possibility of tornadoes in the middle of the day and early afternoon. If tornadoes develop, some may be strong. The threat is highest in the improved risk region from western Alabama to southern Illinois.

On Sunday morning, precipitation will move towards the northeast. It may initially begin as a snowshoe before sunrise with snowfall at 1 inch per hour from Minnesota to New England.

Warmer air should quickly move in and change the snow to rain over much of the northeast. The accumulations should remain fairly limited from New York to Boston. However, there may be a few spots inland from Hartford, Connecticut, to Springfield, Massachusetts, to Albany, New York, which has a decent chance of picking up 2 to 4 inches of snow. In some of the more rural and elevated parts of New England, 6 inches could quickly accumulate Sunday. Meanwhile, the snowfall in parts of Minnesota may exceed a foot of snow locally.

The storm also draws warmer air from the tropics to parts of the southern United States. The temperatures will shortly be at least 10 degrees above the average before the cold front Saturday in the south and then locally 10 to 20 degrees above average in parts of the south-east on Sunday.

The brutal cold air does not provide a strong return in the wake of this storm next week. Another rather heavy storm with another serious weather threat seems to be developing for the middle of the week and is likely to bring about a similar temperature that is set for much of the central and eastern United States.

All this is a sign that the atmosphere in the northern hemisphere responds to more direct sunlight when we head towards official spring start.
