Snowstorm Dorothy Update

A semi-large winter storm is going to occur the day before thanksgiving and impact a lot of holiday travel Wednesday morning. A low pressure system from Canada will dive down to Colorado strengthen, then makes its way through Iowa and Wisconsin which will give much of the upper midwest a good chunk of snow. The storm should hit Nebraska Tuesday AM then start reaching Minnesota and Iowa Tuesday PM and last till about noon Wednesday. The main areas that will receive the most snow is much of Nebraska, Northern half of Iowa, All of southern Minnesota, and much of Wisconsin. Totals should be greater than 12” in much of Nebraska, then the storm will weaken and drop up to 12” in the heaviest bands. I waited longer than usual to post about this storm due to the uncertainty of the track, but now that the storm is on land we get a better view of where it will go. Even though the NWS has issued watches for this storm already, there is still a chance that this storm can shift North East or South East. I am posting a probability map to show where the storm is looking like it will currently track. I will release my final forecast around 9pm tomorrow with my snow Total map included, expect changes to be made!

Below is the NWS current watches and warnings for this storm
