Christmas Eve started with light snow, and this morning woke to a beautiful and quiet Christmas sight BloomSky | Komoka, CA - Realtime weather and picture with daily timelapse!
26 cm for my CoCoRaHS reporting.


Merry Christmas

The final days of 2020 weather in Oklahoma looks to be shaping up as quite rainy or snowy in much of it.  A couple of lows will be moving in and drawing up a lot of gulf moisture and appears difficult to gauge.  So it's interesting how two chief TV weathermen from Oklahoma City have different outlooks of how the precipitation will fall and by how much by Friday:

Supposed to snow here after 1pm.  5 inches.

Fluffy, not the wetter snow. So I can take some of mine and blow it on my neighbors driveway.  :grin:

NWS Forecasters Borchardt/Kluber from the Romeoville (Chicago Area) Office are trying to nail down our interesting weather maker due in tomorrow:

As the freezing line inches northward Friday afternoon,
freezing rain and the wintry mix should convert to "plain" rain for
areas generally along and south of I-88 (though the exact location
may not be known until, well, it happens)
.


With temps bouncing around freezing it will end up being an interesting day with just about everything that can fall from the sky coming at us. At least tonite should be quiet.

Happy New Year to everyone!

When in doubt, just be honest. We don't know! :-)

WINTER STORM WARNING For Much of Oklahoma

Details:
...Impactful snow and ice accumuation expected late today through
early Friday...
...WINTER STORM WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 6 PM THIS EVENING TO NOON
CST FRIDAY...
* WHAT...Freezing rain with ice accumulations up to a quarter
inch, some sleet, and snow accumulations 2 to 4 inches. Blowing
snow may reduce visibility in western, northern Oklahoma, and
western north Texas.
* WHERE...Portions of central and southwest Oklahoma and
northern Texas.
* WHEN...From 6 PM this evening to noon CST Friday.
* IMPACTS...Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous
conditions could impact New Years Eve travelers.

Pink is winter storm.  Blue is winter storm advisory.


TV channel 5, OKC, calls for only a trace to an inch of snow Friday morning for Stillwater.  But channel 4 puts it at 3.3".  Near blizzard conditions may be in store for the southwest quarter of the Oklahoma.

This is a look at NAM's hi-def reflectivity forecast of the storm. A beautiful comma shape with heavy precipitation across all of the very wet east side.

This is going to be a very interesting start to the year. Texas to the Northeast coast all affected by something.

Good! Weatherman Mike Morgan at  OKC TV channel 4 thinks Oklahoma City will just barely escape from a major ice storm.  Things should soon change over to snow around midnight.  Central Oklahoma, including Stillwater,  may get around 4" of it. Temp slowly falling toward freezing here.

Read this quote from our local NWS this morning regarding mid January:

potentially a broad cyclonic flow impacts the central and
eastern US


What effects will a broad cyclonic flow have? More active weather?

Around 4" of snow in Stillwater on New Year's Day pictured.  Oklahoma City got 5" for the most snow ever on New Year's Day.  Tulsa got rain, rather than snow.

At about 10:00 this morning we started to get a lite snow. By 11:00 it was ice pellets and mist. By noon it was freezing rain and mist. Now it is just rain. What, no graupel? I guess there is still time for that as this thing is still moving north and is expected to turn back to snow. Maybe an inch.

This morning's freezing fog hung on until well into the afternoon before it lifted, but the wait was worth it.

For a week or so now, we have had days of freezing fog and "riming" (frosting) of trees and other surfaces.  The NWS Duluth office gave us a science lesson this morning:

Put out a weather email to the staff. Saying it will be slick the next few days and the potential for 6-8 inches of snow on the way.


There is the longest list of teachers not here today. I will never do that again!!!!!
The principal said "maybe send that to me first...."

Tomorrow is snow. We will see what happens.

We are in the blizzard warning as well 2 to 7 inches possible, fortunately I am retired, but I still get that uneasy ingrained feeling of needing to fight through the streets, hills and all that to school or needing to get up at 5 am to watch to see if school has been canceled.   The wife's college is online for her classes, so she doesn't need to go, as long as the power stays, we are fine here.   

Never make snow angels in a dog park.   No, I do not speak from experience.

The snow we had was VERY wet.

TV person said it was 6/1 ratio. 6 inches was 1 inch of rain.

Usually this time of year it is usually 10/1 or 15/1. 

It was a snow that only the healthy should be shoveling. It plugged my snowblower. I had someone come over and push back the slush plies at the end of the driveway.

We may actually see some of the "R" word come Tuesday!! I know not to get my hopes up as I've heard it several times over several months and have gotten squat. I sit at 0.44" since August and not much even before that. If we do get some decent "R" word, it'll do very little to alleviate our "exceptional" drought status, but better than a sharp stick in the eye I guess... :sad:

good comic here

Indeed!  It illustrates how the media wish to commandeer our thoughts and lives.  FWIW I'm having none of it, "Not that anybody cares" a la the Goth episode of TBBT!

 :shock: \:D/ The latest GFS and Euro models are showing at least 1.6" of rain for southern AZ by this time next week. I haven't seen that kind of rain since the entire month of July...(our "supposed" monsoon season :roll:), and even that was still less than what's progged just this week alone. However, considering the multiple blown forecasts so far this winter...  ](*,)
