Wild Weather Ride Continues Across U.S.

The wild weather ride continues across the United States, with numerous watches and warnings across the continental U.S., as well as Alaska and Hawaii.

Much of the wild weather across the continental U.S. will be related to two storms, one in the West and one heading into East.

Watches and warnings are widespread, and this map does not yet include any alerts related to the potential danger of tornadoes tomorrow and tomorrow night in parts of the Deep South.

Note that winter storm watches and warnings extend to the coast in the Pacific Northwest, as well as the hills around San Francisco, for a storm wtih exceptionally low snow levels.

The extreme weather extends into Alaska, which is not surprising, with blizzard warnings in the northern part of the state. (Can Sarah Palin see the blizzard from her house?)

Hawaii is also experiencing storminess, with flood watches for the entire state. Well, technically, it’s the entire state except for the peaks on the Big Island, where winter storm warnings are in effect for heavy snow.
