I realize that I am not a weather expert, but I have always had a very keen interest in weather, and how weather patterns influence our daily lives. Here is an example of a current weather event occurring over a large area of the Northern Plains, today.
A wild storm has slashed temperatures by more than 60 degrees over the Great Plains and was producing wind-driven snow from Colorado to Minnesota Tuesday. Areas from Denver to Rapid City, S.D., Casper, Wyo., and Scottsbluff, Neb., had blizzard conditions begin Monday night, with more to come through the day Tuesday. At Denver, temperatures peaked at 71 degrees Monday afternoon. During Tuesday morning, the actual temperature was 16 degrees and snow with windchill temperature of a minus 14 degrees. At Alliance, Neb., temperatures peaked at 73 degrees Monday afternoon. During Tuesday morning, the actual temperature was 10 degrees with a windchill temperature of a minus 20 degrees.
