Tuesday, January 3, 2012 at 7:15 AM: Temp 26.6 °F Windchill 18.2 °F East 8.1 mph

The Overnight low was 2 degrees cooler from 2:30 - 5:30 AM Data Source: McCurtain County Airport

The Idabel Personal Weather Station KD5ABR
has a broken wind device, or something stopping it from a display of wind speed and gust. It was working yesterday afternoon on Monday but around sunset it suddenly has no reading for the wind and continued all night.

2 PM Update
Right after I posted the problem with KD5ABR above, it began to slowly start working. Now it appears back online, doin' just fine.
Also, my local mesonet.org site for data has just begun to display at 1:30 PM. Mesonet records wind gusts and steady winds. The speed is higher than KD5ABR during the same time periods, most likely because Mesonet is 7 miles SW of the personal weather station that has some wind sheltering from a residental neighborhood and trees, whereas the former is out in open land with little barriers. I wonder if either of the local weather data suppliers ever read this blog.

Wed. Jan. 4, 2012 Update

Morning temperature fell at or below freezing at 3:15 AM and remained so as of this posting at 7:51 AM.

24 hours ago yesterday, only five minutes later, than now, the temperature graph slope shows increasing temp and windchill. However, today the graph slope is decreasing for these two values.

Highs forecast today to be 64° by both the NWS and WU Best Forecast. Friday's High of 70° (WU) & 66°(NWS) predicted.
Tonight (Thursday) the Low 36° and 41° ( NWS & WU).

Thursday 8:10 AM Temp 29° ∞ Same time Today Jan.6, 2012 39° with "Scattered Clouds 1300 ft, Mostly Cloudy 3200 ft, Mostly Cloudy 3900 ft" ∞ The 7:31 AM GOES 13 Satellite showed low clouds over the Red River in SE OK ∞ Today's Highs predicted to be, depending on who you believe, 72° (WU Best Forecast) or 67° NWS ∞ With the 10 degree warmer temps, yet with Easterly light winds, it should be closer to the higher one
∞ My guess will be 70°( don't worry, I won't change this temperature) >
