Heavy Rain in Arklatex Region; Return of Heavy Mountain Snow to the West

An approaching Arctic boundary will interact with a very warm and moisture ladened boundary to produce heavy rain from the South and Central Plains into the Mid-South. An upper level low will continue to produce accumulating snow in the 4-Corners and into the Plains. A pair of weather systems will bring lower elevation rain with heavy mountain snow to the Pacific Northwest, then across the West. Read More >

The soundings below show temperature (in red) and dew point (in green) at decreasing pressures (increasing heights) throughout the atmosphere.

Winds (in knots; 1 knot = 1.15078 mph) are shown at right.
Pennants or flags correspond to 50 kt, long barbs represent 10 kt, and short barbs represent 5 kt. Winds are also colored by magnitude.
The shaft points to the direction from which the wind is blowing. More information about wind barbs can be found here.
