Temp reached 32° at 4:40 and 5:20 AM. As the winds picked up to 5 mph from the East at 5:50 AM the
Windchill Factor was 28°, again meaning how cool it feels on your skin( face, hands, etc...) when there is wind. By 8 AM WindChill reached 32° to then continue above freezing as it is now 34° with the measured temp of 38° at 8:15 AM.
So, Glaciera did not return from being with her sisters for such a brief subfreeze. She t o t a l l y understands the "complex and w e t" area forecast discussion by the National Weather Service Shreveport, LA at 450 AM CST today on Tuesday Jan 24 2012.

A little later today for this update. 2.3 inches of rain here, locally, fell from 7 PM last night until just now. Also this AM, distant thunderstorms with 2 or 3 flashes of lightning. What kept my attention was this:
8:06 AM CST Flood Warning for the Glover River at Glover Oklahoma. From this afternoon to Thursday evening or until the warning is cancelled.
I began doing research, again, on this 32 mile long stream in McCurtain County, 11 miles NorthWest of the Airport. It joins the Little River(South) and then meanders South East until one mile North of Idabel it goes East, not far from where I hide out near Shults, and then crosses the state line into Arkansas. This is the impact locally- a flooding river spilling over its banks, perhaps. Last summer I featured the Glover for its low water levels. Ironic, isn't it? Anyway, the water level is expected to rise 8 feet before nightfall, as seen on the USGS graph below.
You will see the exact flood area on the map links, indicated by the NWS "at 19.0 feet minor to moderate flooding will take place on the Glover River West of Glover Oklahoma and especially at its confluence with the Little River west of Golden Oklahoma".

Final Entry tonight at 8PM a light drizzle outside, nothing on the radar and may not add much to the rainfall total of ~3 inches in the past 26 hours.

• water vapor loop reveals the central Texas closed low beginning to shift east this morning
• areas along the Red River of extreme NE Texas/southeast OK/SW Arkansas should see the better chances for
measureable rainfall closer to the 850mb low as it lifts NE.
Low-cloud cloudy all morning, seemed like fog, temp went up 1° in 7 hours, so tell me where that closed low is. Eastern U.S. Water Vapor Image
