Tropical Storms – Roundup of Tropical Storms:
In the Western Pacific: Tropical depression 35w (Thirty-five), located approximately 461 nm east-southeast of Manila, Philippines, is tracking west-northwestward at 04 knots.
Midwest USA – There’s a storm system covering much of the U.S. that’s producing severe storms in the south and blizzard-like conditions in parts of the Plains and Midwest and east to New England. More wild weather is forecast for Friday across the nation: an ongoing blizzard in the north-central U.S. and flooding rains in the Southeast. Heavy rains Wednesday night flooded several Texoma highways. Overnight storms left many in deep East Texas with a mess to clean up on Thursday morning. Road closures, trees down, and power outages are just some of the damages left behind.
Israel – Israel was hit by a particularly wintry day Thursday as heavy rain spread from the north to the southern coastal plain. In the Western Galilee, 14 mm of rain dropped in one hour in Kibbutz Ayalon. Heavy rain also hit the Lower Galilee, the northern valleys, and the Sharon and Dan regions in the center. Hailstorms hit Caesarea, Pardes Hanna-Karkur, and other parts of the Sharon region on Thursday morning. In Dan region, the heavy downpours caused flooding in several streets.
