Powerhouse storm of rain, storms, high winds, flakes & much colder weather ahead.

Updated: Feb 25, 2019 10:41 AM

Powerhouse storm will pass Saturday to Sunday.

Rain, storms & high winds will occur, even some snow showers & flurries by Sunday.

From southeast Nebraska to Iow to Wisconsin & event central & northern Michigan, blizzard conditions are likely.  White-outs with gusts to 60 mph are a good bet.

Periods of showers with an isolated storm or two is possible late Friday night through Saturday afternoon.  It is possible that the showers begin as brief freezing rain in the northeast areas with temperatures 29-32 as the rain comes in.  East winds will bleed in a tongue of cold air in from Ohio & Pennsylvania.  The rest of the viewing should be 33-35.

There is a Marginal Risk of severe weather Saturday evening-early night in the 7-10 p.m. time frame.  Temperatures will skyrocket to 55-64 northwest to southeast over the area just prior to at least broken line of storms passing.

Winds will increase through Saturday-Saturday evening & go from east to southeast to suddenly south to southwest with gusts to 32 mph.

Actual cold front should pass around midnight through the area with some gusty showers/t'showers.

With the front & behind it, northwest winds will be sustained at 25-35 mph with gusts 42-55 off & on right through Sunday.  I think a few isolated gusts will exceed 55 mph.

Given the duration of this wind event (16 hours) with wet soils, a few trees will topple over.  A few limbs will come down, as well.  A few power outages are possible.

Temperatures will fall Sunday.  After 35-40 in the morning, they will reach 11-17 by Sunday night with wind chills near to below 0.

A period of some rain/snow showers to snow showers & flurries is possible Sunday morning with lots of clouds all of Sunday.

Some spotty snow to rain to snow showers are possible Monday night -Tuesday & early Wednesday.  Little/no snowfall accumulation is expected, but Arctic air will roll on in on gusty winds by Tuesday night-Wednesday.

Unseasonably cold weather will dominate with potentially a parade of winter storm systems with ice & snow in the first half of March.
