Weather Underground midday recap for Sunday, April 26, 2015
A low pressure system moved across the central third of the country on Sunday, while a separate system lingered over the coast of New England.
A low pressure system dipped south southeastward over the Intermountain West and the central Plains. This system drew moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, which initiated severe thunderstorms across the southern Plains. Tornado warnings and severe thunderstorm warnings were issued across northern Texas on Sunday. This system also ushered moderate to heavy snow showers across the southern and central Rockies. Winter storm warnings were issued in northern New Mexico and Colorado. Como, Colo., reported a midday total of 6.0 inches of snow. Bonito Lake, N.M., reported a midday total of 5.0 inches of snow. Just to the north, winter weather advisories were issued across Wyoming and southwest Montana. Rain and thunderstorms also developed over the central and northern high Plains. Kimball, Neb., reported a midday total of 1.00 inch of rain. Conditions remained cold and dry across the upper Midwest and the Great Lakes. Temperatures were 10 to 15 degrees below normal across the region. Ely, Minn., recorded a morning low of 19 degrees.
Out west, an onshore flow from the Pacific generated light to moderate rain over western Washington and northwest Oregon. A ridge of high pressure over the eastern Pacific kept the remainder of the West Coast clear of wet weather.
Back east, a low pressure system inched eastward over the Gulf of Maine. Light rain trailed this system over northern New England.
