There is rain but it is south of here.
More interesting is the Tuesday afternoon ( Feb 1 ) probability of some snow and/or freezing rain, along with a rapid drop in temperatures at the same time.
For today and the next few days these weather maps should be enough to see what the oft' misunderstood weather discussions insinuate.
Tuesday Feb 1 Update
Wind Chill Advisory, Winter Weather Advisory, Freeze Warning, Lake Wind Advisory all in effect for today. We get it all or nothing, it seems lately.
Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect from noon today to 9 PM CST this evening. Snow accumulations of one to two inches will be observed in the advisory areas generally north of I-30. (i.e. here)
Wind Chill Advisory in effect from 2 PM this afternoon to noon CST Wednesday Feb 2. Increased winds will also allow wind chill values to fall below 10 degrees. Also, the temperature fell from 55° at midnight to 28° now at 8:30 AM. The windchill went from 44 - 14° starting at 1 AM until now.
Lake Wind Advisory remains in effect from 6 am this morning to 6 am CST Wednesday. Sustained winds 20 to 30 mph with gusts approaching 40 mph.
Freeze warning in effect from 10 PM this evening Feb 1 to 9 am CST Wednesday Feb 2.
10:05 AM Feb 1 Update
The windchill dropped to 9° with 25 mph wind speeds.
The very cold rain ended and radar shows no new storms approaching. So...we can easily believe this NWS update:
Lows near 15
Northwest winds 15 to 25 mph
Gusts up to 35 mph decreasing to 25 mph after midnight
Wind chill readings 2 below to 8 above zero.

The Winter Weather Advisory failed to materialize and was cancelled. The Lake Wind Advisory was also cancelled, although wind gusts of 25-30 mph occured often between 9 AM and 3 PM earlier today.

Looks like most of the rain avoided my little area of SE OK. In 6½ hours 0.3 inches of cool precip. The radar shows the heavier rain at least 100 miles South in Texas moving slowly from the SW to the NE.

It is cold enough at ground level for some kind of snow but so far, at 9:15AM Sunday Jan 9th, no snow or rain or sleet or anything! The Wundermap shows all purple, meaning light, mixed precipitation(frozen and liquid).
Let's review the slight changes in the forecast over the past 24 hours:
Statement as of 3:25 PM CST on January 08, 2011(yesterday):
Winter Storm Warning in effect from 6 am Sunday to midnight CST Sunday night
* Snow and sleet should begin across northeast Texas and southeast
Oklahoma early Sunday morning... and spread into southern
Arkansas by late morning or early Sunday afternoon. The winter
precipitation will begin to taper off from west to east Sunday
* Four to eight inches of snow accumulation is expected across
southeast Oklahoma... northeast Texas and southwest Arkansas. In
some areas the snow may fall in combination with 1 to 2 inches
Shreveport Weather Discussion 347 am CST Sun Jan 9, 2011
If there has been a trend over the last 24 hours...it has been for
a slight transition north for the best snowfall accumulations
through this evening and less amounts along the I-20 corridor of
northeast Texas and northern Louisiana. This is depicted in the
models as well as hpc's internal snow graphics. Still looking like
we could see a 4-6" snow along a 30 mile wide area of the Interstate
30 corridor of northeast Texas and southwest Arkansas with lesser
amounts 2-4" along the I-20 corridor of NE Texas
Nowcast as of 8:56 am CST on January 9, 2011
Winter Storm Warning in effect until midnight tonight... areas of rain...mixed with sleet...is becoming more widespread across most of northern Louisiana...and portions of northeast Texas...north of Interstate 20. This precipitation will spread northward across southeast Oklahoma and southwest Arkansas...where most precipitation will occur in the form of freezing rain mixed with sleet. This precipitation will continue moving to the east at around 20 mph.
So When is it going to rain or snow or sleet or even frozen fog? The sky is completely overcast/dismal and once again the nonspecific forecast doubletalk only serves to prepare us for the likelihood of slippery road conditions(just as slippery as the forecast of a Winter Storm Warning, not a Watch). I ask once again, when? Do we wait all day and not go out or drive because of this imminent freeze threat? A timely update will be made whenever any of the above happens
10:08AM Fine frozen rain is falling now. So light you can barely hear or see it. I went outside to make sure. So, the forecast finally is correct. It may be due to a little bit of inflammatory rhetoric in this blog, not my lack of patience. The complexity of any natural geocentric process is affected by more than just scientific formulas and observations. Indeed, there are mysteries beyond our comprehension that exist in the here and now and in the Ultra Now!
Just snowflakes now. They are tilted toward the East, showing a wind from the same direction. The ground is starting to get a painting of white, which shows subsurface cooling as well as the air temp.
At least 4 inches of snow on the ground with light, fluffy, pretty snow falling steadily. Quiet too. What a blessing to not hear those motors, pipes & mufflers.
And so we shall have to wait, watch, see & make a slushy snowball!
It may be Princess Glaciera is back again
