A moderate risk of severe weather was issued for the Southern Plains today, making it worthy of today's hotspot. It looks like a storm system will slide east, with a stationary front out ahead of the system and a trough in tow. Expect the storms to fire along the front and what may be the equivalent of a dry line, based on the positioning of these risk areas. The main risk is for hail and damaging winds, while a tornado threat is also somewhat elevated.
A massive storm system will drop rain and snow today in the Northeast, making for slick conditions across the region. No severe weather is expected.
Some isolated showers and storms are possible today. A few could be on the strong side.
The west coast may get in on some rain as a storm system rubs against the coast, which may drop some heavy rains.
