Everything from snow to severe over the next few days

Matthew Newman, Sr. Meteorologist, The Weather Channel



Today will feature benign weather overall but activity will begin picking up overnight and into Wednesday as the next arctic plunge spills southward and a storm system develops near the lower Mississippi Valley. Severe weather will become a possibility as upper-level energy interacts with an increasingly moist flow of air out of the Gulf of Mexico. Strong storms could initially develop tonight across the upper coast of Texas and Louisiana and then spread eastward during the day on Wednesday. As the cold air spills southward and moisture returns northward, there will be a possibility of significant snow from the Ozarks to the Ohio Valley. Winter storm watches are posted across northern Arkansas, southern Missouri, northwestern Tennessee, southern Illinois, much of northern and western Kentucky and most of Indiana and Ohio.


In Hawaii, huge surf is once again rolling toward the islands from a deep storm centered south of the Aleutian Islands. The first big swells have already arrived and will peak on Wednesday. Although unusual, some of the biggest waves will pound west-facing shores. The highest waves, 40 to 50 feet, are forecast to smash onto west and north-facing beaches of Niihau and Kauai, and north-facing shores of Oahu.
