    If you're to be running from Southern UT through Central Wisconsin this weekend into early next week, be prepared for some tough travel conditions, especially on the Colorado Eastern Slope on Monday morning and moving across Iowa and into central Wisconsin over Monday and into Tuesday afternoon.

    8-12+ inches is expected over fairly large areas in the appropriate 24 hour windows as the upper disturbance moves northeast across the central plains

    And keep in mind, an "Enhanced Risk" area is currently projected for Tuesday [mid day thru afternoon] for the likelihood of damaging winds and most likely some tornados throughout the lower Mississippi Valley
