    Is this a troll post? Or are you saying people should not clean snow/ice off car before driving?

    That user is always replying with one or two words on almost anything. I am not sure why, as the replies usually add nothing to the thread. Maybe it is a bot.

Luckily I was looking for that and stayed well back but if I had been hit and damaged vehicle woulda got tag # for insurance to fight them to pay.

    It seemed every other vehicle did not clean it off. This is dangerous and can kill someone if a chunk hits winshield and breaks or causes an accident. Its no different than someone dropping items off an overpass bridge except its the whole drive not just underpass.

    I think it is a symptom of not snowing much here and awareness. It has killed a few in Pennsylvania when chunks of ice slid off of tractor trailers. PA made a law with a requirement for trucks to ensure the ice is off the trailer prior to departure. I know some truck stops and trucking companies have scrapers to remove the snow and ice when departing.

    For the record, I typically reply with the same value as the post I'm replying to.

    Yeah, yesterday and today both were pretty gorgeous, if just a tad chilly. That said, I'm not sure where in OKC you are, but at my house on the south side, the high temperature on the 5th was 61F. The official high temperature, observed at the airport, was 59F. This is right around what was forecast for yesterday. Tell me again how this was a "forecast bust"?

    And no, two days of warmer-than-average temperatures don't equal "well above average" temperatures for the rest of the month. Temperatures will slide back into the mid to upper 40's by midweek and stay that way through next weekend.

    Don't feed it. Feeding it makes it stay.

    As others above have mentioned. Warm again today, Monday. Tuesday turns cooler with strong winds out of the N. Rest of week we slip back into normal temperature ranges.

    Next precipitation shot looks like cold rain heading into Friday.

    Cold air continues to filter down into OK. Thursday will struggle to make 50F and cold rain will move in by nightfall.

    Thursday night into Friday we could see as much as an inch of rain across most of the region. Heaviest being in the NE portions of the state. Some possible late transition to snow right along the OK/KS border Friday evening before the whole system moves out. This will be a solid snowstorm for most of MO.

    After that we will have temperatures much cooler and highs in the 40s. Next precipitation action looks to be around the 17th/18th timeframe.


    Sidenote, this is probably the most efficient winter we have had in a long time in regards to consistent moisture replenishment. If this continues, we could see a beautiful Spring.

    Man it's killing me on the farm.... I have a couple of plots I want to expand crops into and it's too muddy to get it done.

    This winter has also been great on the natural gas bill.

    Temps so far this winter have been above average, are we going to see a proper winter temp wise?

    Isn't it pretty average? 50 as the high and 30 as the low. It seems to be around that now.

    Thats awesome news for this time of year! Should help fire season however everything will grow faster in spring and we can go to drought or fire crisis so fast. Still good news though!

    Outside chance @ winter precipitation this weekend, but for sure nothing close to being locked in. Right now the bulk of impact will be across IA and MO again.

    The following week looks like more action is possible. Looking even beyond that into extremely questionable forecasting, there is signs of some arctic air settling into the region.
