Unusual springlike storm today

 Strong low pressure will move northeast out of Colorado today. What makes this storm system unusual is the path that it will take. Normally this time of year, low pressure would pass by to our south and east bringing heavy snow to the region. However, this strong low pressure is expected to move almost due north from northeast Colorado into central South Dakota by evening. Strong south winds will bring warm air, as much as 20 degrees above normal, into the region today. So instead of snow, widespread rain can be expected. There will also be a chance of thunderstorms east of the James River Valley this afternoon, with a few severe storms possible over portions of northwest Iowa into eastern Nebraska. This unusually warm weather will not last for long, with temperatures back to normal February temperatures by mid week.
