Wow, very busy map. While just about everyone east of the Rockies will freeze for the Christmas weekend, we'll actually have a ridge over us and our first above average temps in weeks. Stay safe y'all!

 Passage of Siberian cold front here caused the temp here to plunge from 40 to 20 degrees in an hour early Thursday morning.  From there the temp dropped to .7 degrees before stopping.  It snowed a bit under an inch.  For Friday morning we'll see if it will be able to drop below zero. The wind is still blowing some, so maybe it won't.

Most of the country is under some brutal temperature swings overnite and today. Chicago's Chiberia extreme was a drop of about 40 in the past 24 hours.

Continued cold and wind for the next several days. Yikes!

Even far South in Houston we went from 57.4F @ 1:42pm yesterday, to 15.1F @ 6:50am this morning. A 42.3F drop. But it was the feels like of 3.8F that makes it much worse.
A bit better now with 23F, 12.4F feel like.  Wind is still gusting up to 17mph.

I went out to pick up a package this afternoon when our temp had risen to 9F.  My car had been sitting in my unheated garage for two days so it was quite cold as well.  The snowmelt treatment the city uses has worked, but the streets are wet.  After I pulled back into my garage the errand having been completed, I tried to use the windshield washer to clean the front and rear windows.  It was a no-go!  The washer fluid has apparently frozen solid.  Now that's cold!

40 degree difference for the fropa here. High of 66 on Friday and a low of 26 on Saturday morning.
What impressed me most was the dewpoint. It got to 12 here with single digits just to my north. That's unheard of around here. Still around 15 as of this writing.
By next weekend our temps are back into the low 80's.
Guess La Nina took a break this weekend.

We got 13" out of it. It settles fast down to about 11"  https://www.valentinenebraska.net/snowcam.jpg
This winter has been something else. 36.8" already.

Drought continues. Only .18" and none of it snow.

I was afraid of that, not everyone's getting hit. North Platte where the forecast office is located 130 miles south got  5.9".  They reported 15" at our airport I only measured 13" though.

If my memory is correct, the NWS seasonal had forecast a better chance for wetter and colder weather for your area the N Plains.  It is going to take a major weather pattern change for us to break out of this drought. I am a big believer in the power of El Nino and La Nina to affect our weather here.

Good grief!  It's only Jan. 6, and 5 tornadoes for Oklahoma sets a record for the most tornadoes ever in the month of January.  One of them was only two counties away from me!  January for the next 7 days doesn't look very stormy with no unusually cold days.

Think you are right. I'm loving the deep snowpack reminds me of my mountain home. This is actually my birthplace and I decided to retire here because it was so much like the mountains I loved. Ponderosa pines and blue spruce grow naturally along the rivers around here.

A warm January, so far, in Oklahoma City probably reflects that much of the country has been warm in early 2023.  With nothing record setting, during the first 11 days of January, Oklahoma City has had above average highs every day.  There will be cold fronts during the next ten days, but nothing unusually cold.

Ended up getting another 8" yesterday. I'm rethinking this snow thing mainly because the roads are always bad and inside the garage is always wet. Some areas SE picked up a couple of feet yesterday. North Platte set an all-time daily snowfall mark (13.9") which dates back to March of 1894. Here in Northern Nebraska sitting at 45" total so far and this isn't our snowiest period which comes in late February and March. What a way to break the drought we were in.
Welp time to fire up the snow blower again.

I was on the southern fringe of the snowfall.  If the 0.71" of rain/freezing rain had been snow, the total would have been impressive.  As it is we received just a dusting of snow atop the sleet and freezing rain.

The Weather Channel camped out in Omaha and were disappointed that the snowfall there was so meager.

 :lol: derives them right. Ended up with (.75") moisture here with the 8" of snow. Spoke with one of the North Platte forecasters this morning he's been there for 21 years and said he's never seen a winter like this. By that he meant heavy snow in December and January. We've had spring blizzards in the 14" range even since I've been here but those spring blizzards are gone the same week. Different when it's mid-winter and it sticks around.

Like you, we were on the southern edge here in northern KS. Sharp drop off in snow amounts north to south. I measured core on snowboard at .73" water equivalent and CoCoRaHS gauge catch was .64". We had some freezing rain, lots of sleet, and snow over 24 hrs. Snow depth 3" on top of about 1/2" of ice/sleet.

I was very surprised at the liquid equivalent based on what was on the snow board. Cannot explain why it is so much. 3.5" to .73" water is a heck of a ratio, isn't it? No nearby stations I can check amounts with either.

We welcome the moisture. Very dry here in last year.

Truthfully that's why I stopped doing cores was some of the ridiculous high readings I would occasionally get.
I don't even own a Cocorahs gauge anymore, gave all mine away. For snowfall they just don't work like an 8" diameter gauge. I have 2 cans in the 8" size so just switch them out. The reason I do that during an all-day storm is to update the website. The heating tipping bucket gets way behind if the temps are under say about 25 which it usually is here.

Guess what. It is cold.

But NBC is acting like it is the next ice age.

First definitive ridge in three months. Bout time.  :roll:  Should push 80F fairly easily, albeit short-lived.

Quite a whiplash taking the dog out first thing in the morning last two days. Saturday: -10F and windy. Sunday: 25F and calm. As the saying goes in so many places, including New England, if you don't like the weather, just wait a few hours.

Mid 20F's progged for Wed. morning, which if comes to fruition, would be the coldest temps of the year. Spent practically the entire season with below average temps. Don't know about you guys, but I'm ready for winter to take a hike.  :roll:
