    Decent shot of rain moving in tomorrow through Tuesday. Some areas along I-44 and to the SE will get well over an inch of rain. Nothing severe as it stands now, maybe some marginal stuff SW.

    Longer range nothing severe showing up either. Next storm system comes in around the 14th with another chance of heavy rain and snow mixed in.

  3. Default Re: General Weather Discussion - November 2014

    Heavy rain still on tap for tonight and tomorrow. Rainfall forecasts below. Snow still in the longer range forecast between the 14th and 18th depending on the timing of that system.

    NWS Forecast


    NAM 36 Hour


    GFS 36 Hour

    This will be great heading into the winter months where we already have exceedingly dry conditions. Let's hope the main rain band is larger than forecasted at the moment - as most of OK needs it.

    So what's the story on next week and next weekend? Where is the best source for long range forecasting? I'm headed to CLE next Friday for a football game next Sunday, sounds like I need to bring my ski gear with me!

  14. Default Re: General Weather Discussion - November 2014

    For CLE this weekend looks like a fast clipper like system blowing through that might bring a rain/snow mix. Following weekend looks cold and dry.

    For down here, the focus would be on a storm system coming in from the Pac NW around the 8th and 9th. It will dive into Nebraska and really deepen. When this happens it is going to pull a ton of cold air down from Western Canada over much of the US. The low will then head back north up over Hudson Bay and continues to pour tons of cold air down our way. GFS on Nov 12th has OKC in the 30s for highs that day and down below freezing by early evening.



    Do I expect it to play out exactly like this? No. However, don't be shocked to see a decent cold snap take place. Now the next question...what about precip? Good or bad...this system is coming in pretty dry. It doesn't look like any precip is really going to accompany it here in OK. When it comes to precip we will probably need to look just beyond Nov 20th for a possible precip maker.

  15. Default Re: General Weather Discussion - November 2014

    Cold air still on the way as I've been mentioning for a few days now. Snow chances are minimal still, but don't get shocked to see some next Weds/Thursday...ish.

    Don't be shocked if you see me on the news running around with my new propane weed torch trying to melt it before it hits the ground.

    I presume this is the remnant of Nuri?

    Should be nothing to worry about.

    Update for us...late on the 14th expect snow to move into Northern OK. 1-2" possible north two tiers of counties. Another wave of snow on the 16th has the chance to bring a widespread 1-2" over much of the state...but I'm not holding my breath.

    Looks like winter will arrive this coming week. I keep hearing old timers saying this will be a much colder than average winter. I guess some of the old timers get this from the almanac. I used to hear about the almanac years ago being popular for upcoming weather forcasts but haven't really heard mention of it in many years. I wonder just how accurate it is. Anyone have any experience using the alamanc?

    A friend of mine who keeps horses here said that their winter coats were growing on them earlier than usual which she asserts means that it will be a harsher winter. Anyone else seen any other signs in nature of a tougher winter?

    I am pretty sure, from everything I have heard, that this will be like last winter, with regular polar vortexes bringing below normal temperatures to the eastern half of the United States.

  23. Default Re: General Weather Discussion - November 2014

    Oh to get through a season with out the buzz words "polar vortex" would be amazing.

    Cold air still on tap, no changes there. Snow chances look best on Saturday into Sunday. Nothing major at all and most will be light and mixed with rain it seems. Cold air remains with a strong reinforcement coming around the 18th and 19th. Talking highs in the 20s.

    Get your holiday decorations up this weekend. Fast. :-P
