Stormy days ahead

Take a look at how colorful the weather map is today with plenty of watches, advisories and warnings.

In the west it's for snow across the higher mountains in the central and southern Rockies. East of the mountains the threat is for near hurricane force winds and high fire danger from west Texas to the plains of western and central North Dakota.

Severe thunderstorms are expected to develop later today across the southern and central plains states. There is the threat for strong and damaging tornadoes in a few areas. Sadly, this threat will roll east over the next few days.

Another threat is for extremely heavy rain totals in the Ozarks and nearby areas. Some long range models show 5 to 10 inches during the week ahead with a bullseye across western Arkansas.
