Widespread danger of severe weather is predicted for the central United States

According to AccuWeather meteorologists, a powerful storm will sweep from the Rocky Mountains to the Canadian border on Friday and continue over the central United States on Saturday.

Extreme weather conditions will put many major cities in the Midwest at risk.

The storm’s huge circulation will pull warm, moist air northward from the Gulf of Mexico, while strong winds from the storm system will provide the energy needed for the storms to become intense.

The same storm will bring blizzard conditions to the Dakotas and Montana regions.

As far as severe thunderstorms go, Friday could be pretty calm.

However, when the land warms up in April, thunderstorms will erupt and quickly become severe throughout the late afternoon and night, according to forecasts.

According to AccuWeather meteorologist Randy Adkins, the biggest dangers from severe weather Friday afternoon through Friday evening are likely to be huge hail and powerful gusting winds.

Severe tornadoes, like any severe weather event, have the potential to ignite and inflict property damage.

The greatest chance of multiple tornadoes will be in sections of eastern Nebraska, southern and eastern South Dakota, and western Iowa Friday night through Friday night, according to the director of AccuWeather forecasting operations, Dan DePodwin, who added that this is where the most twisting winds in the atmosphere will be, as well as a push of warm, moist air at the same time.

Friday evening, motorists should be prepared for changeable weather conditions as they drive along Highways 29, 70, 80 and 90.

The storms are expected to directly impact the cities of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Grand Island, Nebraska and Salina, Kansas.

There will be an increased risk as the storms are expected to hit near sunset or after dark on Friday.

There will also be a real blizzard this Friday

On Friday and Saturday, snow will be the main weather story further north and west as a winter storm intensifies in the region.

According to USA Today, the storm could turn into a full-blown blizzard, with snowfall and feet of snow in some areas.

Winter storm warnings have been issued for parts of Montana, Wyoming and the Dakotas due to the possibility of more than one foot of snow and whiteout conditions caused by heavy snowfall rates and/or strong winds producing limited visibility, according to the Weather Service.

Finally, exceptional fire weather is expected Friday in the southern Rockies, mainly in Colorado and New Mexico.

Widespread relative humidity of 5% to 15% and winds of 30 to 40 mph (gusts up to 60 mph) will spread dangerously dry fuels, the weather service predicted.

The volatile mixture will favor intense weather-fire conditions.

Red flag warnings have been issued for New Mexico, eastern Colorado and the Texas Panhandle, as well as parts of Arizona, western Nebraska and western Kansas.

Fire conditions will deteriorate on Thursday, particularly in the southwest, before spreading to the eastern Rockies and western Great Plains on Friday.

The weather service warns that the weather “will become conducive to rapid fire development and unpredictable fire behavior” at that time.
