A storm filled with moisture invades the plains of southern and southern Appalachians with snow and ice

A moisture-laden storm system will cross the southern United States over the weekend until early next week. (Capital meteorological group and main weather) El Niño winters like the one we enter known for its southern storms rich in moisture. It may not be surprising that a major winter storm is looming in the southern United States, which could release historic amounts of snow into the southern Appalachians. This developing winter storm, of peaceful origin, will affect a vast area from the southern plains to the center of the Atlantic. The storm sets off Friday and lasts until early next week before departure. On Thursday afternoon, the winter storm vigils were already ascending from eastern New Mexico, northwestern Texas, and much of Oklahoma, to the border region between northwestern Ontario and northwestern Ontario. Arkansas and Missouri. Additional watches and warnings will be extended to the east in the coming days.
(National Weather Service) Friday, a low pressure system begins to form in Texas and northern Mexico. Heavy rains spread throughout Texas as snow and ice form in the northern part of the storm system. Winter precipitation is mainly expected from New Mexico through the Texas Panhandle and finally
in parts of Oklahoma enter on Saturday. In the warm sector of this storm system, across Texas and finally in the south, it is likely that total precipitation will reach 1 to 2 inches. A big piece of East Texas can end up with up to three to six inches of rain, including Houston, San Antonio and Austin. In this region, flood monitoring and flood warnings for rivers are on the rise due to heavy rainfall forecast for the next few days. Any threat of severe storm seems limited by the fact that the low-lying center can follow the north of the Gulf Coast, thus limiting the expansion of hot, humid air to the north. However, if it is further north than that, storms with strong winds and hail could develop in parts of the south, especially on Saturday.
Precipitation totals (including ice and melted snow) at the beginning of the week mark the path of the coming storm. (The meteorological band of the capital and pivotal weather) Although the cold air with this system is somewhat limited, a band of winter precipitation is expected to extend along the north and northwest flanks of the storm. Snow totals are likely to reach a first peak in the
Southern Plains and Ozarks on Saturday, evacuating the Tennessee Valley before rising again in the Southern Appalachians on Sunday. In addition to the threat of snow, significant icing is expected, especially in the southern plains. Generalized accumulations of freezing rain of 0.10 to 0.25 inches are possible in northwestern Texas, southwest Oklahoma and northwestern Arkansas. Some places can see up to half an inch of ice. In Oklahoma City, where 3 to 6 inches of snow and ice are forecast from Friday morning to Saturday evening, customers will clear the staples rays in grocery stores.

In western North Carolina and southwestern Virginia, a foot of snow or more can fall from Saturday night to Sunday evening. Heavy snow may also cover parts of northwestern South Carolina, eastern Tennessee and Kentucky and southwestern West Virginia. Some of the elevated grounds of western North Carolina can see more than two feet of snow.
The European Meteorological Model's snow forecast shows a fractured band from the Southern Rockies and plains to the east coast with the coming snowstorm. (weatherbell.com) A number of population centers in western North Carolina and southwestern Virginia are at risk of substantial accumulation. Here are some selected forecasts, which are likely to change depending on the trajectory of the storm: Asheville: 12 to 24 inches Blacksburg: 8 to 14 inches Roanoke: 5 to 10 inches Lynchburg: 3 to 6 inches If a foot of snow falls in Asheville, it would be the fifth largest storm ever recorded. The total should reach at best 18.2 inches to overcome the biggest snowstorm ever recorded, starting in March 1993, which is a possibility. Computer models project up to 22 "of snow for / near
#Asheville, NC. That's more than the 1993 storm. Here are the top 5 snowstorms in the Asheville history.
1. 18.2 March 1993
2. 16.3 "Dec. 1971
3. 15.9 February 1969
4. 14.0: January 1988
5. 11.5 April 1987 pic.twitter.com/m7L6Ibtudn– Mike Bettes (@mikebettes) December 5, 2018 Some questions remain about the intensity of low-level snowfall in the east of the mountains, mainly on Sundays. The best hypothesis is that even places like Greensboro, Charlotte, Raleigh and Richmond may see at least several centimeters of this event, with decreasing amounts to the northeast in this area. How much accumulation of snowfall in the north makes the center of the Atlantic passable to many discussions The dividing line between snow accumulation and snow flurries can be established in central Virginia around Charlottesville – where you can see several centimeters or a little dust depending on the extent of the northern storm. The Washington area is unlikely to experience significant snowfall, but it is also possible that snowflakes also visit it before the system is lost in the Atlantic Ocean, especially if it moves to the North.
