Showers, Thunderstorms Likely Wednesday Night

The NAM is forecasting the development of a linear band of showers and thunderstorms from Oklahoma to Canada. This will be as a cold front comes through to end some warm weather in the lower Great Lakes, South Central Plains and areas to the east.

Luckily, this will not be a severe weather threat. There looks to be minimum instability, maybe even the atmosphere trying to prevent thunderstorms from forming. Either way, there will not be any instability on any level to be able to initiate stronger storms for this event.

There will be the issue of mixing precipitation in west Oklahoma and west Texas to all snow in southwest Kansas. There could be some slick conditions in those areas due to the system trying to initiate some mixing and snowfall behind it. For now, snow accumulations look to be low, with snow depths ending up at around 1-2 inches.
