Midwest Weather: Severe storms, strong winds, and snow
Michiana has yet to see any storm activity for the 2021 year, but that's not the case for other places in the Midwest. A complex system moved through Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin yesterday bringing strong winds, tornado warnings, and hail. There were hail reports of sizes ranging from quarters to golf balls. Not only was there severe weather, but also winter weather that followed shortly after.
A strong low pressure center moved in out of the high plains yesterday evening into Iowa and Minnesota. Here it encountered the right ingredients to produce a few supercells that went tornado warned. After these storms cleared, cold air moved in out of the north behind the cold front. Forecasts last night and early this morning were calling for nearly half a foot of snow with this system. Areas in the High Plains and Midwest this time of year can see a rapid change in weather. That's why it's always important to keep a close eye on the weather as we move into spring
