Super Sunday Storm: The Winter Sneak Attack?

The storm that didn't get all the attention on social media may be the one that causes more problems. Chief Meteorologist Shane Smith digs into the storm potential Sunday night into Monday morning.

Howdy folks, I hope you enjoyed a warmer and dry Friday. Isn't it bad when we call 40s warmer? I'm going to take to video form to discuss my thoughts on the storm potential for Monday into Tuesday, but I wanted to drop some quick thoughts off with you before we get to that.

Tomorrow the weather is going to be great. I'm expecting a mix of sun and clouds with highs topping out in the 50s! Get out and enjoy it, because the weather will take a turn for the worst Super Bowl Sunday.

A cold front will come in from the west and bring us a soggy Sunday, which also happens to be Groundhog's Day. Appropriate that we're expecting more winter weather on the day where so much winter weather folklore gets the national spotlight. The wintry stuff should start late in the evening, as cold air moves in and turns rain into snow. Low pressure developing off to the southwest will slide in and bring us the wintry mess for Monday morning. At this point it's looking like a combination of snow and freezing rain. Where exactly those happen and how much of each are yet to be determined, but I am confident enough at this point to say it will likely be a messy commute Monday morning.

It's funny that now this storm looks like it's the one that may cause a lot more problems than our Tuesday/Wednesday storm next week. Funny how this one didn't get as much buzz on social media.

Before we get to the video, one disclaimer about this storm system. A change in track of 50 miles will cause HUGE changes to the forecast. This is going to be one of those storms where we're going to be trying to pin it down until the last possible second. Without further delay, here's the video update:
