Major Winter Storm Tracking Through the Central United States

Blizzard warnings, winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories have been issued across the Central Plains and into the Midwest as an impressive cyclone quickly pushes through. Thus far, highest totals of snow have been reported in Iowa with over eight inches of snow. Expect the snow to begin in the Upper Peninsula of the Great Lakes by Friday evening. Meanwhile, unstable conditions will move toward the Southeast. This instability combined with plenty of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico will bring showers and thunderstorms by Friday evening and into Saturday morning. This image was taken by GOES East at 1715Z on December 20, 2012.
