Friday’s Weather Outlook; Southeast System, West/Plains System

9:30PM

On Friday, a system will exit the Southeast, while a new system continues to develop in the West and Plains. Showers and storms will be ongoing in portions of the Southeast, and continue through part of the day. There is a chance a few isolated stroms may become severe. In the Plains and West, a system will continue to develop on Friday. Showers and storms will be likely in many areas. This system will also bring the first big snow event of the season to the region. Snow will begin falling Thursday Night and continue into Sunday. When all said and done, 1-4 feet of snow is possible in the mountainous areas of Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. There will also be up to 12 inches of snow possible in Western North Dakota and Western South Dakota. Below is my thunderstorm outlook for Friday, and below that is the snowfall forecast for North Dakota and South Dakota through Sunday. Note: The snowfall map does not include the Inter-Mountain West due to forecasting difficulty of the mountainous terrain, and map scale.
