‘Omega block’ to determine weather in US this week
Spring is on hold in the East as the Omega block dominates the weather to start May.
This pattern is known as an Omega block because the feature resembles the letter from the Greek alphabet. Because of this, the Northeast and West will remain rather stormy and cool while the central U.S. has time to dry out and warm up.
May snowstorm brings 'extremely dangerous' conditions to Upper Midwest
Marquette, Michigan, saw its snowiest May day on record Monday, and more snow on Tuesday will only add to the 19.8 inches the city has already received.
Winter Storm Warnings remain in effect Tuesday as heavy wet snow will continue to fall in Michigan’s western Upper Peninsula and a portion of northern Wisconsin.
Severe weather threat returns Thursday
The potential for more typical springlike severe weather returns Thursday as the Omega block pattern begins to break down.
