A Windy Sunday

Good Sunday morning bloggers,

WIND ADVISORY TODAY!

Well, it rained off and on all night, but amounts were around .10″.  A few spots received .20″.  It was nice to see the rain, but we need so much more.  If your car was parked outside last night, you may notice an increase in dirt.  The rain overnight was dirty as a duststorm occurred last night in New Mexico and western Texas.  This dirt became mixed wity the rain overnight. SEE MAP #1

The main part of this storm is tracking north of I-80, and it will produce a more covential 6-12″ blizzard for northern Nebraska, the eastern Dakotas and Minnesota.  The impact in our area will be wind with gusts to 40 mph.  Between now and early afternoon the sun will be out with temperatures warming to the low 50s.  Then, a cold front will sweep through with the wind continuing, temperatures dropping into the 40s and an increase in clouds.  SEE MAPS #2 AND #3

MAP #2:  Here is a radar image from early Sunday.  The snowstorm is getting its act together in the northern Plains with rain and thunderstorms across the southern USA.  We are in between with wind and exiting rain showers.

As this storm heads northeast into southeast Canada, a new storm will be dropping south into the southern Rockies.  This next storm will likely affect Oklahoma and Arkansas with snow Tuesday.  It will be close and we have to watch it, but the chance of it affecting our area is 5%.  SEE MAP #4

    I took the dog out for a walk and now I think I’m in St. Louis. Geez it’s windy.

    Gusts to 49 mph at KCI. That’s some wind. And it makes an otherwise nice temp day feel miserable.

    As bad as these last two winters have been (as far as snowfall) if you take our last four winters and combine them we are about average on snowfall.

    Wow I didn’t know there were so many comedians on the blog!

    Just a matter of time before we got a ticket in the new Challenger. Darn Independence nailed us on 70 doing 90. It was fun though opening up the throttle!

    The wind is just crazy. It looks like winter is over as far as snow goes. I believe this will be the 2nd least amount of snow for winter since last year was number 1.

    I would guess that we are not going to be in a spot for severe weather this spring according to the almighty LRC. Wouldn’t the hot spots for the winter forecast be the same for the spring?

    You guys any closer to hireing another met?

    Well, taking a look at the long range models can’t really leave anyone with any great deal of optimism regarding additional snowfall for the winter. In fact, up until now, I thought we would likely see a significant snow event at some point. We still may, but I would say, probably not at this point.

    It’s really pretty incredible if you think about it. Temps have been plenty cold to support snowfall at many points during this winter, and moisture has been sufficiently available at certain points this winter, but at no point have the two come together. At this point, I don’t expect that they will either. Spring Training starts tomorrow. Time to turn the page I suppose.
