Pattern change ahead

Well after a rather mild and quiet stretch of weather for much of the nation - things will become more active as we round out the month of February.

The jet stream will transport a series of storm systems across the lower 48 states over the next week.  There will be some cold air associated with this change and a return to more winter like conditions for many.

We may even see some thunderstorm activity in the southern plains states later next week as the cold and warm air masses collide.

Look at how much snow has melted over the past week across the nation.  Below is the current map as of today (Friday 2/18) and if you scroll down you can see the maps from recent days.
