Snow, Ice and More Coming Soon

November 25, 2015 03:34 PM

Itching for some winter weather? Winter Storm Cara is on its way to deliver snow and ice to at least 21 states.

“This is a complex system, and we have a lot going on with it,” says Domenica Davis, meteorologist at The Weather Channel.

It’s a slow-moving system that will take several days to make its way across the country, starting on Tuesday in the West and continuing through this Thursday and Friday. It is expected to create plenty of holiday travel havoc during this time.

Areas expected to see some snowfall through Sunday include the Rockies, the High Plains and the north central Midwest. This includes large portions of North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa southern Minnesota and Wisconsin.


Cara will also likely bring the first significant ice storm of the season to parts of Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, the Texas panhandle and New Mexico.

Frigid Canadian air lurks behind the storm system, bringing much colder temperatures into this weekend and next week.

  “Winter Storm Cara”??? Winter storms do not have names. Please do not indulge The Weather Channel in their pretentious practice of "naming" snow events. One Facebook user posted THIS criticism: "Naming winter storms is the dumbest idea ever. Why hasn't NWS or any other reputable weather reporting source joined in the naming? Oh, maybe they still feel their role is serious reporting - instead of sensationalizing, dramatizing and commercializing." It's pretty much how I have always felt. TWC's Tom Niziol attempted to deflect the criticism: "One reason we're doing this, simply put, is we can. We cover weather on a national scale. By ascribing a name to a weather system that's gonna create those types of impacts, we can follow it right across the country." THAT'S their answer? "We do it because we CAN"?? And the only way the personalities at TWC can keep their eye on a weather system is to give it some kind of cute name? That's the silliest thing I've ever heard.
