Heavy snow, blizzard conditions affecting parts of United States, challenging records

Blog note. Jesus indicated that ‘fearful sights’ (various natural disasters) would occur leading up to the time known as the Tribulation and Great Tribulation (a combined seven year period of great destruction on earth). Although these types of things have occurred in the past for centuries and thousands of years, they could be identified as the ‘season of the times’ due to the ferociousness of these events. They would be occurring in greater intensity, severity, frequency, size, duration, scope … just like the pains that a woman experiences in labor the farther along she is in the labor process. We are in the ‘season of the times’ that comes just before the seven (7) year Tribulation/Great Tribulation period
… And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11).
… And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; (Luke 21:25)
… Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)
… This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2 Timothy 3:1)
Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. These verses are several of many such prophecies from throughout the Bible. 2017 was the worst year in recorded history for the intensity, frequency, severity, duration and occurrence of a large number of severe natural disasters worldwide. Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, torrential flooding, unprecedented wildfires in unusual places, devastating droughts, excessive/scorching heat setting records everywhere, record snowfalls in Europe and Russia. Snow in the Arabia. This list can go on. Most studied Eschatologists believe these ‘fearful sights’ and massive natural disasters are all part of the ‘CONVERGENCE’ of signs that this Biblical and prophetic age is closing. Most people who study prophecy are familiar with the routine reference(s) made that these things will be like a woman having labor.

Heavy snow, blizzard conditions affecting parts of United States, challenging records

Heavy snow and gusty winds are affecting parts of the northern Rockies, northern Plains, and upper Midwest this weekend with blizzard conditions expected in portions of Montana. Accumulating snow is expected as far south as Chicago. Elsewhere, breezy and cooler conditions are forecast for much of the East.

A shortwave impulse tracking across the central plains will sustain a surface low across the Midwest states on Saturday, April 27, 2019, NWS forecaster Hamrick noted.

The majority of the precipitation with this event is expected north of the surface low track from South Dakota to southern Michigan.

Late season accumulating snow is expected on the northern edge of the precipitation with several inches of snow likely from southern Minnesota to near the greater Chicago area, with winter storm warnings in effect for parts of these areas.

In the warm sector of this low, scattered showers and storms are likely across parts of Oklahoma, Arkansas, and northern Texas, with some severe storms possible.

Towards Saturday night and Sunday, April 28, a second storm system will organize over the Rockies and western High Plains in response to a closed upper level low.

This will likely result in heavy mountain snow across western Montana and extending eastward across parts of North Dakota, and gusty winds for the Intermountain West behind the cold front. Another round of heavy rain is likely across the central plains ahead of the surface low. 

“Slippery travel is possible in cities such as Chicago, Milwaukee and Detroit,” AccuWeather senior meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.

While it is not uncommon for this portion of the northern tier of the U.S. to receive snow during late April, the amount of snow expected in Chicago will challenge records, Sosnowski added.
