Surface Analysis -- Sunday, February 10

Prognosis... Blizzard event continues in the Northern Plains. Low pressure system down to 992 millibars is centered in Nebraska. Heavy snow is ongoing in South Dakota into Minnesota. Heavy rain showers are also occurring in southern Minnesota into Iowa and Illinois. Mixing precipitation is occurring more-so into northern Iowa and Minnesota. Further south into the South Plains and by the Gulf Coast, severe weather is ongoing. A squall line of heavy thunderstorms is present in eastern Texas and northern Louisiana. East Arkansas into western TN/KY are other states experiencing some form of thunderstorms. A small, weak area of lower pressure centered south of Houston appears to be connected to this main storm system. High pressure in the Mid-Atlantic will be pushed east as the squall line progresses east and the main storm system shifts north and east.
