The weather will be very active across the nation this week.
Courtesy of AccuWeather, these maps spell out the winter storm threat:
There will be freezing rain from northwest Oklahoma to western Michigan. This will create slippery roads. Please factor this into your travel plans.
The map above is a good depiction of the snow forecast — however, there will be snow today from Denver across northeast Colorado and into northwest Kansas that is not depicted on this map (which starts tomorrow).
Flooding may develop in Arkansas and adjacent areas due to very heavy rains for this time of year.
There is also a chance of tornadoes and severe thunderstorms later in the week. I’ll update on that possibility if it develops.
