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.
MAP #3: 330 PM SUNDAY
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

Have a great Sunday and hold on to your hats!
