[3 AM] The sleet sheets approach from Dallas and farther north of the I 30 Corridor(includes my area). No winter warnings from the NWS in Shreveport for my area, here Φ [1 PM] By now I think the snow missed us entirely.









Thursday Feb. 25, 2010

Updates will be here. The animated SouthCentral Frontal Map should display any precipitation as well as the direction of movement.

We may have some snow tonight and into Friday. In the advanced weather discussion a maybe snow & sleet in the Northern Sections was mentioned, and I am in the NWS Shreveport Area northern limits.

0.86in | 21.8mm Rainfall yesterday

not Snow or Sleet or Ice Pellets nor light snow. The frozen mixture of molten snow and thawing sleet flew by just south of here! Must be the antimatter cloud at work once again.

There is frozen fog all over the place this pre-dawn morning. Shining a bright flashlight in the air with the door open showed a very pretty sight. You could see tiny glassy crystals suspended in front of you and it did feel very cold! So I assume it was frozen, and this means Princess Glaciera did do something!! I wonder why they don't fall onto the ground? Maybe if they did it would melt and so you couldn't see them, then.

Princess Glaciera



Princess Glaciera decided to spray paint today. The temperature has plummeted 10° and is on a steep decline right now, with steady winds at 15 and gusts 25-30 mph. The snow is light but "stings your nose and bites your toes" as The Princess laughs and laughs at her wonderful landscape whitening magic all around.

Princess Glaciera



Princess Glaciera took her brushes out this morning before Noon and began to paint. I went for a walk in the light wet snow. No winds whatsoever made it warm( I dresssed appropriately as for a ski lodge ) and it was quiet! I knew this day was a Blessing. Peaceful, with hundreds of stark, contrasting black birds finding something to eat on the white grounds. All the bare trees covered, the rooftops white, the roads wet, and I almost made a snowwoman. Maybe later will take pictures of this rare Nature Event.

Today it has rained 2.5 in. Adding on with the Feb 4 total, we have had 4.5 inches | 11.4 centimeters of rain in the past 5 days! It may chill out enough to bring some snow overnite too!

I was a little disappointed to see flash flooding over some streets in the nearby town, with no warnings from the NWS.

◄► Next Day Update ◄►
The NWS did issue a Flood Warning at 8 PM — after it stopped raining — but it was for the Red River 3 or 4 days from now if water rises 5 feet! Also the coldest windchill and humidity was at 7:30 AM and not one flake of snow nor a trace of bird down.

Area forecast discussion
National Weather Service Shreveport la
418 am CST Wednesday Feb 3 2010


Discussion...
zonal flow quickly giving way to a more southerly flow aloft this
morning... with rain not far behind the wind shift. The precipitation
should remain southwest of the County Warning Area until around midday...but then
spread rapidly into East Texas this afternoon. This round of
precipitation result of an upper low located over Baja California...which
will track northeast into central Texas by Thursday evening. As
the system tracks east...a surface low should develop in the Gulf
near Brownsville and track northeast. This will keep the County Warning Area on
the cold side of the low...with plenty of warm moist air riding
over the top. Look for periods of moderate to heavy rain beginning
late tonight and continuing into Thursday. By Thursday night...the
surface low should move into the lower Mississippi Valley...gradually
ending the rain from the southwest...


Next upper level system digs into the southern rockies Sunday
night...once again setting up southwest flow aloft. Some sleet
possible across southeast Oklahoma late Sunday night as the first
middle level moisture spills into the area.

Area forecast discussion
National Weather Service Shreveport la
236 PM CST Wednesday Feb 3 2010



Discussion...
precipitation trying to saturate the column and make it down to the
ground across portions of East Texas this afternoon but still
nothing measurable as of 20z. This will change through the night
as the right rear entrance region of 150+kt jet generates the lift
needed for rain coverage to really begin building from midnight
through 12z Thursday. Have thus tapered probability of precipitation lower this evening with
categorical probability of precipitation areawide for after midnight through the day
Thursday. Best chance to see any thunder appears to be south of
the I-20 corridor and more likely across southeast Texas/SW la so removed
any thunderstorms and rain mention north of the corridor for Thursday. Heaviest
rainfall should be south of the corridor as well where we could
easily see upwards of a couple inches... especially across our southeast
parishes through late Thursday night.


Area forecast discussion
National Weather Service Shreveport la
642 am CST Sat Feb 6 2010


High pressure will extend south across the central sections of the country
and remain through most of the remaining weekend. Moisture will be
returning back around the back of the surface ridge of high
pressure as it advances east setting up for our next significant
system driving across the southwest on Sunday. As this upper
trough shifts east into the overnight hours Sunday and early
Monday...a surface low pressure area will shift east across North
Texas with a trailing cold front. A warm front will lift north
ahead of the approaching system. Showers and thunderstorms will become
widespread over the four state region by Monday and into Monday night...
with locally heavy rainfall possible. Another upper low will be
amplifying south and phase with the southern stream system
dropping much colder air in wake of the cold front Monday night
and into Tuesday. As temperatures fall late Monday night into
early Tuesday and the atmosphere cools aloft there will be a
period of the precipitation changing over to a mix of rain and snow
for the northwest sections of the forecast area before the
precipitation comes to an end in the middle morning Tuesday.




The Probability Curves change constantly! Weather is a dynamic process. Stay tuned...



The frontal map will track the above discussion, the Probability; the Radar for precipitation.
