Today, March 20, 2010, the Vernal Equinox begins at 12:32 PM CDT.
The Irony of Spring is that we have a rather late in the year Winter Storm Warning forecasted to produce 5- 12 inches of snow, depending of course on where you live!!
Earlier this A.M. it was snowing in Tulsa but that snow is not moving SouthEast. Please note the following is a

southwest Arkansas this afternoon and evening. Temperatures are

intensity late tonight into Sunday morning.
Total snowfall accumulations of two to five inches will be

Thus... snowfall accumulations will occur mainly on elevated and
grassy surfaces. However... patchy ice may develop on some

tonight behind a strong Arctic cold front. Winds will increase to
over 20 mph with gusts as high as 30 mph. Windy conditions will
persist overnight and into Sunday. Winds should begin to subside
Enjoy yourselves, those who defy the dedicated life-saving warnings from the NWS. The last time it snowed in OKC and Tulsa 7 died driving the 80 mph speed limits on the interstate highways of Oklahoma, and over 150,000 people lost power. It is now time to WAKE UP, people!
