Minus 4 this morning. Normal is right around 25 F.

Even though my station is in its own microclimate, a station 25 miles west was minus 3 and another10 miles east, minus 1.

(-4) also here in town. Airport was (-6) x2  two days in a row now. We did get 2.5 inches on Sunday.
Still hanging around this is current conditions.

Woo-hoo! Latest guidance is in and tomorrow looks very interesting as this cut-low starts to lift NE through the area bringing a good shot at T-storms...some possibly super cellular and a FFW too boot. Then the second storm, associated with the trough and obviously with much colder air moves through Thursday-Friday with over a foot of snow in the sky islands. QPF's for the valley look at least 1.5" of rain by the weekend, that's good stuff here. =D>

Great walking around weather in north central Oklahoma for last two days with afternoon temps in the lower to mid 70s and not too much wind.  So yesterday I walked around the lake, pictured below,  a good place for bird watching and today walked to Starbucks.  Upcoming days have a cool off, but no snow or temps getting considerably below normal.

Local WFO/models nailed the QPF, 1.67" so far in my back yard and possibly more to come. The inside of my Stratus gauge has even fogged over, never saw that before. Speaking of, may see some fog tonight/tomorrow...hope so to give the 31 finally a good soaking.

White Thanksgiving for some. Here is the current European model 10-day total. Even if overdone some are in for bad travel.

After a dry November, now the precip/snow. Won't complain about the moisture, but don't like the timing at all.

So-we are going to get snow tomorrow.

Schools are already cancelling classes-Even in the city. And I am wondering--why did Minnesota get so soft????????


I started teaching here in 2001. From 2001-2017 we had 1 late start and one snow day and three for -40 wind chills.
Since then we have had 4-5 days off for snow. It is embarrassing.

I feel like we dodged a real mess this Thanksgiving, especially regarding travel. The significant snow was just 30 miles to our NW. Fog on the drive home from Nebraska was a safety concern yesterday, but it could have been much worse. High Wind Warning today, but I am not driving in it. No complaints here compared to many other areas of the country.

Kind of wondering how Randy is doing with his blizzard warning.

 So far so good not much wind but have picked up about 6 inches of new snow.  They have a Blizzard Warning out for today but the wind hasn't materialized yet.  [tup]

Since we can't seem to get any snow in Oklahoma I like to sit with my 6 year old granddaughter and check out your webcams! She loves to look at the snow. On a side note gotta love your long yellow ice removal tool  =D>  Careful on that ladder!

LOL, caught me. I was trying to get the anemometer unfroze.

Since I've never had the experience, could you possibly just "hose it off" and hope it doesn't re-freeze?

Possibly, I've heard of using something like a super soaker. I got back up there and beat it off. Now seems to be spinning freely.
Good thing the wind has picked up blowing snow now.

Randy, if you can find one of these deicers on eBay, used of course, your problems might be over.  :-)

Yes, I remember that as well. I believe using car radiator anti-freeze was also suggested.

We didn't get over a foot of snow this was caused by wind.  Lots of shovel time ahead.

Thanks for sharing the pictures. Were you able to measure the highest wind gust or was the anemometer still out of commission?

I measured 50 mph here, but many stations north were in the 60s. This was an impressive prolonged wind event here.

Your welcome, the highest gust my station recorded was 46 MPH. The airport ASOS had 53 MPH. I may still have some freezing rain on one of the cups but its not unusual for the airport to record higher speeds. 

Here is what 6.4" snow I measured can do about a 5' drift on side of the house.
