A chain of fast-moving thunderstorms( squall line ) is traveling from the SW in Texas over SE Oklahoma.

Observed Precipitation Map ««This map is good where observations are fed into the NWS. From Noon until 1:30PM rain total was 0.8 inches and it's still raining at about the same rate.

We also have a Tornado Watch in effect until 6PM this evening.

If the severe weather pattern continues past 6 — which happens a lot when the tornadoes and thunderstorms forget to bring their quartz crystal watches — the watch may be updated.

Most of this week from Monday - Friday has been basically the same. At week's beginning the fog differed in how thick it was and how long it stayed near the ground until what remained was overcast skies. A few breaks of sun at 3PM lasted an hour or less, so it has been warmer days and nights! But with this SW- S - SE wind comes humid air.

Below is a rough estimate of the Relative Humidity over the past 36 hours from 2/15/11 at 2:10 PM until 2/18/11 at 3PM. A 24 hour table with readings at 20 minute intervals was used.

Princess Glaciera will be painting roadpaths and trees and all buildings on the ground overnight and into tomorrow.

Shreveport NWS seems to be reluctant to issue a Winter Storm Warning, only a Watch. Other offices in Oklahoma and even farther south in Texas have issued warnings, but not Shreveport. It is a glaring oversight the only county in Oklahoma that will be affected by this approaching storm not needing a warning is McCurtain - part of Shreveport's area of forecasting and the northeastern part of Texas along the Red River is also excluded from warnings by the same "wait and see" office. South toward Dallas and even farther south have Warnings! Maybe the watches presume to be changed later.





3 hours later since the above was posted
4:18 PM CST on February 08, 2011

 
Winter Storm Warning in effect from midnight tonight to 6 PM CST Wednesday



A Winter Storm Warning for heavy snow means severe winter weather
conditions are expected or occurring. Significant amounts of snow
are forecast that will make travel dangerous. Only travel in an
emergency. If you must travel... keep an extra flashlight...
food... and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.




Total Snow accumulations from 6 -10 Inches!

I will estimate possibly 12 inches since Princess Glaciera has been waiting to silence this area once again and restore peace and beauty, instead of rumblings and numbskull pollution disregard for the gift of natural beauty from the Earth.


Thursday: After the snow


Much farther north(Tulsa and Bethany, OK) had the big snow. By the time the colder air reached the southernmost easternmost part of Oklahoma the air column had warmed slightly and the frontal system moved quicker than expected(by the NWS) to the east out of the area.
Still, mission was accomplished. It was much quieter with less fools running the roads.  Local schools closing at Noon yesterday on Wednesday anticipating a lot of snow and that brief period of time with the Beauty of Soft light snowflakes gently falling with no distractions from appreciating the gift of awesome silence.

Princess Glaciera waits. It is quite cold out right now but no snow on the ground. Icy windshields and windows.


Friday Feb 4: She is now painting the trees and rooftops, keeping roads quiet, so abnormal to the unplugged from nature. Isn't it nice to have peace again?

Winter Stom Warning until 6PM. Glaciera may not notice the time and stop abruptly then.



Another Wind Chill Advisory & Hard Freeze Warning overnight until 9AM Thursday Feb 3.
With a 16° Low Temp(like last night) accompanied by a 10 mph wind gust it feels like 3°.
