MY 2010 SEVERE WEATHER CHANGES

Severe weather season starts in less than a month. I am alreday making preparations to be ready to go. I have all my resources ready for any severe weather scenario, and I will be extremely busy when it starts. I will be covering severe weather for the county. If needed, I will pull resources to make sure that you remain safe and this site updated as needed. THERE MIGHT BE ANOTHER METEOROLOGY STUDENT WHO WILL HELP RUN THIS SITE!!! I will be covering severe weather for my school paper, and I will be switching from winter weather mode to severe weather mode when the time comes. YOU HAVE MY GUARANTEE OF SEVERE WEATHER INFORMATION THIS SEASON!!! SEE NOTE BELOW REGARDING WARNING CRITERIA CHANGE!!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE: THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HAS CHANGED THE CRITERIA NEEDED TO ISSUE SEVERE T-STORM WARNINGS. THE OLD CRITERIA REQUIRED 0.75" HAIL, WHICH IS PENNY AND/OR WINDS OF 58 MILES PER HOUR OR GREATER. UNDER THE NEW CRITERIA, HAIL SIZE MUST BE AT LEASY 1", WHICH IS QUARTERS AND/ OR WINDS OF 58 MILES OR GREATER. THIS WAS IMPLEMENTED THIS YEAR TO TAKE AWAY THE COMPLACENCY TOWARDS SEVERE STORMS, FOR THERE WERE TOO MANY WARNINGS BEING ISSUED.

Weather Update- Snow Possible Friday morning

Hello everybody. I hope everybody is having a good evening.I have had a chance to look at the models and I have a decent feel of what is going to happen. Tomorrow will be a carbon copy of what we saw out there today. On Thursday, we will see more clouds as a storm system approaches. Thursday night into Friday morning looks like a decent chance for precipitation. The best chances will be from Oklahoma City and points northeast. Friday will be cooler at 43. Saturday will be warmer, with a high of 51. NOW THE HARD PART!!! Sunday into Monday is hard to pin down, for the models are all over the place. As of right now, I think we will have highs in the upper 40's with a 30% chance of rain and/or snow. Tuesday will be warmer with a high of 50; so as you can see the weather over the next 7 days will be a roller-coaster. CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES!! The forecast can easily change.

Have a good night.

Stormy conditions Sunday, February 21

With regards to Sunday, We will see rain and storms Saturday night into Sunday. Temperatures will fall on Sunday. We will see a high for Sunday very early at 48, and temperatures will fall from there. I have been so busy with school and life. I have been dealing with a lot of problems and have been at my breaking point. Until further notice, I will not be posting continual updates; however, I will be focusing on a storm system that will affect Oklahoma Sunday. If the weather gets bad, I will post quite a bit of updates. Thank you for your support during this tough time, and I hope to be back soon with updates. Severe weather season is almost here. Oklahoma's severe weather season runs from mid March to mid June. Looking at the latest weather updates, it looks like we may possibly have below normal temperatures this spring..

Thanks again,

Jonathan Dyer
