2009 Oklahoma Weather in Review

We had some extreme weather in Oklahoma in 2009. Early in the year, we had a narrow band of sleet fall south of the metro. In February, we had tornado after tornado blow up over Yukon in a few hours, on the same day, and one of those hit NW Expressway and Rockwell blowing out windows, tearing up businesses, taking a huge piece of lumber and impailing it in the chucky' chesses, and knocking down the huge shopping mall sign. In late march, we had a blizzard in the northwest part of the state. In April, we had wildfires from southwest into central Oklahoma. Some of these fires destroyed many houses in Midwest City. In October, we were real cold for the month. In november we warmed up and on Christmas eve we had our big Blizzard!!! THE BLIZZARD TOTAL WAS ADJUSTED TO 13.5 INCHES, BUT THE STORM IS STILL CONSIDERED RECORD BREAKING. Here is hoping to an interesting 2010 weather year!!!

Moisture and clouds will move in Tuesday with Cloudy skies and a high of 33, with southeast winds to 10mph. The snow will start Tuesday evening at a 40% chance, but the better opportunities will come Late Tuesday into Wednesday morning at a 50% chance.

Stay tuned to my updates, for I will have additional information on timing and snowfall accumulation.

Additional snow possible Tuesday Into Wednedsay and maybe even Thursday!!!!

Our next storm system is in the southwest and may produce a few inches of snow Tuesday into Wednesday. This does not look like a big storm, but any more snow will just make things worse. There is still a few inches of snow on the ground and any snow drifts may be with us for a few more days. Stay tuned for updates.

I am watching our next weather changer!!

WOW! what a winter storm/blizzard. We received 14.1 inches of snow at Will Rogers World Airport Thursday A NEW RECORD!! This storm shocked me. I felt like we could see a winter storm on December 15th. I remeber telling our photographer and coordinater that we would see a winter storm Christmas eve, but I was not expecting a blizzard. I am thankful that God has given me so much ability to forecast and warn people. There is a chance of rain/snow is Tuesday and Wednesday. Yeah, I am already talking about snow again. It looks like it will move mainly north of our area, but we may see some light rain/snow. Temperatures will remain in the 30's the next seven days ands we will get another shot of colder air New Years Eve and we will chill to below freezing highs for New Years Day. The snow that is out there may last a while so be cautious, for the snow will melt and freeze up overnight. I will have additional information tomorrow.

SLEET/FREEZING RAIN/SNOW EXPLANATION

Above our heads at the highest layer everything falls as snow. When the snow falls if temperatures at all levels are below freezing it will be snow. If it hits a large layer of warm air above our heads, then it will melt and may fall as freeing rain. If it melts above our head and then hits a thin layer and melts and then re-freezes it falls as sleet.

WINTER STORM ON ITS WAY FOR NORTHWESTERN OKLAHOMA AND SNOW LIKELY FOR THE METRO!!!

The 1200z model run has changed from previous models. The track of the storm brings it south of Oklahoma city and into eastern Oklahoma. The storm is also a little slower ejecting out once it moves in. People in northwestern Oklahoma will see the rain change over to snow Wednesday evening and people in southwestern and into Canadian county may see the rain switch to snow late Wednesday. For most of the metro, we will likely see snow falling early Thursday around midnight. As of right now I say that the metro will see 1-2 inches of snow that will be blowing around with strong north winds 20-30mph. This will create problems for people wanting to get outside. A winter storm warning will likely be posted for the northwest 1/3 of the state and travelors advisories for the metro. Strong cold dry air will plunge south behind the storm producing dangerous wind chills and freezing highs. I will follow this more in depth tonight when the 000z model is released. BE VERY WEATHER AWARE DURING THIS PERIOD. I WOULD NOT BE TRAVELING THURSDAY IN ANY PART OF NORTHWESTERN OKLAHOMA OR ANY PART OF KANSAS. I WOULD WANT TO STAY TUNED TO MIKE, RICK OR GARY, WHOMEVER YOU TRUST. AS USUAL I WILL POST ANY ADVIORIES OR WARNINGS AS THE ARE ISSUED. EXPECT CHRISTMAS DAY TO BE VERY COLD WITH WIND CHILLS IN THE TEENS AND LOWER TWENTIES WITH A POSSIBILITY OF A WHITE CHRISTMAS.

WINTER PRECIPITATION BECOMING LIKELY!

As of my new forecast, I have highs tomorrow and Monday in the mid 50's. Tuesday around 48. On Wednesday I think that we will have highs around 42 very early with falling temperatures and a 60% chance of mostly rain during the morning hours. In the afternoon we will possibly have a mix of rain, snow and sleet. We will transition to snow for a few hours Wednesday night. The track of the low pressure is changing from run to run on the models. I think it will move near Oklahoma City with most of the accumulating snow to our north, but if this track moves any further south, we will see accumulating snow. Low wind chills appear very likely Wednesday and Thursday with north winds 20-30 mph and a high on Christmas eve of 32. The cold weather may last through new years eve as we see round after round of cold arctic air. Christmas day looks very cold and dry. Updates tomorrow.

Friday, December 18, 2009

POSSIBILITY OF WINTER PRECIPITATION, BUT IT IS NOT LOCKED IN!!!!!!

Temperatures Saturday-Tuesday look above normal with highs mainly in the low to mid 50's. A strong arctic front will sweep through the metro Tuesday night into Wednesday bringing down much colder air; accompanied by low wind chills Wednesday and Thursday with Northwest winds 20-30 mph. Low precipitation chances exist from Tuesday night into Friday. Timing and strength of a storm system behind the front will either bring in snow/ sleet or nothing at all. Model consistency is becoming low and we will not know for sure what will happen, but cold temperatures and dangerously low wind chills look likely, especially Wednesday and Thursday. Stay tuned for further updates as we get closer. I still believe we will at least see some light winter precipitation.

WHITE CHRISTMAS POSSIBLE FOR OKLAHOMA UPDATE 12/17/2009

Temperatures next week will be cold and a storm track that will dive south of us may produce a decent chance of seeing snow and may lead to a white christmas. Models are not as strong on the snow, but temperatures look like they will be cold. I believe that we will see some snow. The radiosonde soundings for Oklahoma City next week suggests temperatures at all layers of the atmosphere could all be below freezing. The exact track is not known for sure, but it looks like it will move south of Oklahoma and producing snow for a good portion of the states. Right now I have a high on Tuesday of 44 and christmas eve of 30. These cold temperatures could last well to near New Years Eve. As always I will be watching this carefully and post updates. Here is hoping for a white christmas.

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

WHITE CHRISTMAS POSSIBLE FOR OKLAHOMA!!!!

Models are coming together that portray a white christmas from the rockies into the south central plains and into the eastern seaboard. A storm track will move to our south and this will allow snow to fall north of the storm system. It is still over a week away, but the twister data weather model has stayed consistent for nearly two weeks. It will be a COLD christmas week for sure. I am not going to say that this will be a winter storm scenario yet. I this does occur this will be the best chance for a white christmas for a good part of the states since 2002. Stay tuned. I will have updates. Twister data also wants to keep us below freezing from Christmas eve through New Years eve, but that aspect is highly unlikely. I do however believe that cold arctic air will plunge south next week and with a weather block to our east will allow temperatures to get real cold by the mid part of next week where we may not get out of the 30's for highs.

Freezing rain potential December 23

twisterdata.com along with goldengate weather are suggesting freezing rain on December 23. We will have an amplified trough which will dig into the rockies and down into arizona and new mexico. This disturbance will shoot off northeast and will cause temperature to maybe fall to freezing. The air above our heads will be slightly above freezing and due to the fact of freezing temperatures at the surface, we may see a winter storm. Updates will be posted as it gets closer.

Arctic air already through Oklahoma city and plunging south into south central Oklahoma!!

Very Cold arctic air is plunging south. We have already hit our high for the day early this morning. Temperatures are tumbling and wind chills are occuring. It is 5-15 degrees in Kansas, and 20 degrees in northern Oklahoma. We will fall to a low tonight of 20 and only warm up into the mid 30's for highs Tuesday. I have not finished my forecast, but I will have it done later this afternooon.

Wednesday, December 9, 2009

Coldest night of the season!!!!

Extreme frigid air is in place and with light winds and clear skies radiational cooling will be strong. This will drop our low to around 10 tonight. Sorry about a late forecast update. I have been busy with school. Tomorrows high will be around 37 with variable winds to 10mph. Friday will be chilly with southeast winds 5-15 mph and a high of 43. We will try to warm up Saturday and Sunday before another shot of colder air moves back in. Saturday 48. Sunday 53. Monday 47. Tuesday 44. Wednesday 44. We will have strong northwest winds on Tuesday. Im about to look at a long range model that goes out to Christmas. Right now it looks like we may have snow and cold weather christmas eve!!!!

Arctic air moving through central Oklahoma!!!

Strong arctic air is now moving into central parts of the state. Behind this front expect strong northwest winds and rapidly falling temperatures with wind chills in the teens. We will see lows tonight around 17 with wind chills near zero. Wednesday will be very cold with strong northwest winds that may exceed 40 mph and temperatures that will not get out of the upper 20's with winds chills in the teens for the majority of the day. Thursday morning will be the coldest low of the season around 12 degrees. We will remain chilly through Saturday and we will warm up to 50 degrees Sunday, but this warm up will not last. We will have another shot of arctic air that will send temperatures falling on Monday with highs on Monday and tuesday in the upper 30's with a slight chance of snow on Monday and Tuesday. Take precautions if you have to get out tonight, so that if you get stranded you will stay warm. Take blankets and bundle up in a HEAVY coat. Until tomorrow stay warm and safe.

EXTREME ARCTIC AIR TO MOVE THROUGH TONIGHT AND LAST INTO THURSDAY MORNING

Strong arctic air will move through the body of the state tonight and will be accompanied with strong north winds, which will produce winds chills in the single digits tonight and may get as low as 0 degrees by 6AM. Be very cautious tonight. If have to get out tonight take a blanket just in case you get stranded. Any long stay out in this weather tonight may lead to hypothermia and frostbite which are serious conditions. With arctic air in place we will not get above freezing tomorrow with a high of 30 degrees and wind chills in the upper teens. Tomorrow night we will get down to 13 degrees. Winter Weather Advisory in affect for the panhandle and far northwestern Oklahoma counties. We will be chilly through Saturday. Updates later tonight.

Oklahoma City to get colder again!!

Get ready for some more COLD air! A cold front will move through the area tonight and will usher in much colder temperatures for Monday with a high of 37. A storm system behind it will move in Tuesday and will bring a chance of mainly rain, but we may see a little freezing rain. I do not expect much, as the main area for winter weather will stay north of us in Kansas, where Winter Weather Advisories are in affect and as you get into Nebraska it will be worse. Temperatures on Tuesday will be around 44.WEDNESDAY WILL BE A BIG CHANGE AS THE STORM SYSTEM MOVES OUT, WE WILL HAVE STRONG NORTH WINDS ON THE3 BACKSIDE THAT MAY EXCEED 30 MPH AND MAY REACH 40MPH. THIS WILL PRODUCE WIND CHILLS IN THE LOWER 20'S. We will remain chilly trhough the weekend. Stay tuned for further changes. Any change in the track of this storm system may bring snow into Oklahoma.

We will have a cold front move through tomorrow night bringing our winds around to the north. Monday I have a high of 38 with north winds to 20 miles per hour.

Friday, December 4, 2009

CHANGES IN FORECAST!!!!

I just finished my forecast and I am not going as cold Monday through Wednesday. I have a high on Monday of 38,Tuesday 39, and Wednesday 40. On Tuesday I have a 50 % chance of rain and snow. My initial thought yesterday was that we were going to have freezing rain changing to sleet then snow, but the models changed in temperatures and precipitation type. We will warm up on Thursday and Friday with highs on Thursday of 45 and Friday 52.


CHANGES MAY OCCUR IN THE TRACK OF THE STORM, SO I WILL BE WATCHING THIS CHANGE CONSTANTLY!!!

VERY COLD TONIGHT. CHANCE OF FREEZING RAIN/SLEET/SNOW TUESDAY NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY!!

I have updated my forecast and we will have a frigid night with a low of 20. Friday we will have a high of 39 with northwest winds to 15 mph. We will remain cold throughout the weekend. Increasing clouds on sunday ahead of a storm system that will bring our highs into the upper 30's for highs monday through wednesday. Monday I have a high of 38. Tuesday I have a high of 37 and Wednesday a high of 39. On Tuesday we will be cloudy with a 60% chance of freezing rain changing to snow by Wednesday morning. We will try to recover on Thursday with a high of 47.

THERE IS A THREAT OF FREEZING RAIN CHANGING TO SLEET THEN SNOW TUESDAY NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY! STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES AS THIS HAS NOW BECOME A DISTINCT POSSIBILITY!!!!!!

UPDATE ON COLD AIR AND POSSIBLE SNOW/ICE NEXT WEEK!!

The new models just came out and is painting tuesday and wednesday as very cold with a chance of the precipitation starting as freezing rain and changing to snow tuesday night with highs tuesday of 38 and wednesday 38. Temperatures may not get above freezing Tuesday or wednesday, but as of right now, I am going with highs in the upper 30's. The GFS model off the rap site has much colder temperatures with highs in the upper 20's for tuesday and wednesday. I am being optimistic right now, but I could easily drop the numbers f the models stay consistent. Stay tuned for changes, for this is a major change in the weather forecast and may result in dangerous travel conditions next week!!!

COLD AIR TO CONTINUE. ICE POSSIBLE NEXT WEEK!!!!

We are starting the day very cold with temperatures in the upper 20's. Today will remain cold with a high of 42, with north winds to 15mph. Tongiht will be the coldest of the season with a low of 22. We will remain cold through the 7-day period. We may have highs tuesday and wednesday in the upper 30's and may even see some freezing rain wednesday. There are major inconsistencies for this period, so any confidence in temperatures for next week is low. Models range from 33-56 for next week, but I feel like we will be cold with highs on Tuesday and wednesday of 42. Note: be very weather aware next week because if the GFS models are correct we may see ice/snow. I took a walk out earlier and there was water left over that had frozen over and was very slick. This mad me think of what next week may be like.If freezing rain is to occur travel will be very slick and dangerous. I will follow the models as often as possible and will post any changes.

Tuesday, December 1, 2009

SLEET IS NOW MIXING WITH RAIN!!!!!

The sleet is not sticking due to temperatures well above freezing. The sleet could change to rain/snow briefly before sunrise. COLD temperatures along with low wind chills are in store for the metro today, with a high of 44. Winds of 15-30mph will cause wind chills to be in the upper 20's to low 30's today.
