Severe Weather Forecast For Plains And Midwest, Including Risk Of Tornadoes

While the northeastern U.S. continues to enjoy warmer-than-usual November temperatures, conditions are not so rosy elsewhere in the country. Severe weather is forecast for the Plains and Midwest Wednesday, with the threat of tornadoes and blizzard conditions in parts of the High Plains, according to the National Weather Service. "Heavy snow is forecast in the Rockies and western Plains, with blizzard conditions possible in parts of Colo., Neb. and Kan.," the NWS said in its latest forecast. "In addition, this system could bring severe thunderstorms to the Mississippi Valley." Thunderstorms are expected to dump heavy rain and bring strong wind gusts that will reduce visibility and cause traffic delays, according to AccuWeather.
