We have had blowing dust, thunderstorm, mud rain, and a high of 72 today. The storms we got are just the beginning for folks east of us. It looks cloudy out, but it is pure dust. Nasty weather and I fear for some potentially dangerous.

Barometer 29.20" and falling.

Check out the satellite photos for western KS if you are interested.
WOW, what crazy weather to have a short while before Christmas.  Things here didn't get that dramatic Wednesday.  High was 78 with a wind gust up to 36 mph. It broke the old March high.  Barometer got down to 29.55.  Stillwater was near the weak tail end of the line of storms that stretched from north central Oklahoma to Minnesota early Wed. night.  Only got a tame .22" out of it.  It was much needed.  The AQI spiked to 108 after the rain, which is unusual.

Oklahoma panhandle and northern Texas panhandle got a lot of wind and fire.

Oklahoma City has gotten into the 70s for the 7th time this December for the most times ever for that month.  At this time last year there was snow on the ground.

We had a couple of hours of blizzard and near-zero visibility when it came through here in Valentine Nebraska. Short video of what it looked like out the front picture window.  Hard to measure inches .20" in moisture in the 8" SRG it was 21-24° air temperature with 61 mph wind gusts. I ended up going with 11:1 ratio and reported 2.2" of new snow to Cocorahs.

Thanks, Randy!  The video reminded me of some of the blizzards we endured during my grade-school years (1945-1955) in Creighton.  From our perspective mother nature seems fickle at times.

Still have a little snow on the ground but not much. Looking at models changes ahead at least up here several snow chances maybe even Christmas eve. Turning much colder around the 27th too.

Icy roads in Wisconsin this morning.

I-94 near Eau Clare had a 100 car pile up. Closed in a few places.


NWS Des Moines has a good link to others sites about the Tornado/storms last week

Yep, warm here also. Not sure about records because there are no close-by locations that keep such data, but nevertheless warm 60s were the rule through today, 26th.  Getting quite dry here too.

had some snow yesterday early morning.  Then a glaze of ice. Anything without snow on it got iced over.

Now, it is snowing again, so any glaze is covered by snow. Have to be careful where you walk. Then it will get real cold this week.  Oh fun.

Still waiting for the real winter to start in the Chicago area. Got about 1.5" of slush yesterday that melted today. It looks like Saturday will be the big arrival. Six to eight inches possible thru Sunday followed by single digit temps on Sunday nite. Interesting observation from a local TV meteorologist:

This has been a crazy few days.  75F on Saturday, down into the 20s Monday morning.  53F right now and 29F in the morning.  36F tomorrow and 12F Friday morning.  It will start to snow tomorrow morning.  Of course, here in the south, we're not prepared for a lot of snow on the roads.  And I expect power outages from fallen trees or limbs.

I haven't heard the term "Polar Vortex" this season.  Have they quit using it?  This sure seems like one.

From the NWS:
...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 10 AM EST /9 AM CST/
THURSDAY TO 1 AM EST /MIDNIGHT CST/ FRIDAY...
* WHAT...Snow expected. Total snow accumulations of up to two
  inches.
* WHERE...Southern valley of East Tennessee and southwest North
  Carolina.
* WHEN...From 10 AM EST /9 AM CST/ Thursday to 1 AM EST
  /midnight CST/ Friday.
* IMPACTS...Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous
  conditions could impact the evening commute.

The Chicago area is looking at a 35° drop over the next 30 hours or so. Not quite as drastic as MN but still a shock to the system. It looks like the artic blast will be sticking around for several days, cranking up the Lake Effect Snow Machine for the folks in northern Indiana.

26 was optimistic. High since 7 a.m. has been 19. Red line:  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Wind chill single digits all day. Can't compete with Minnesota but still 45 degrees colder than yesterday.

Boston AFD...

Overview...

Explosive cyclogenesis occurs off the Mid Atlc coast tonight, with
an impressive ~40 mb pressure drop in 24 hrs, yielding a bomb
cyclone of around a 965 mb low over the eastern MA waters Sat
evening!  00z guidance trended west and is in somewhat better
agreement than previous runs, however differences still exist. The
00z NAM (especially the 12km NAM) the deepest, slowest and farthest
west solution of the 00z guidance. Therefore followed a non NAM
model blend solution for this portion of the forecast.
