Snow Headed South of Texoma...

 

UPDATE: Mon 22 Feb 2010 / 3:30p.m.

The snowstorm will move south of us; we may get very light accumulations overnight/Tuesday but we're talking maybe a half inch. Major travel problems are not expected since roads are fairly warm from the mild weekend. Many areas may not see any accumulation at all; southern portions of Texoma have best chances of getting a little white on the ground.

    Thanks for all your information, blogs, and responses, Steve. Very informative. I know these winter storms are very hard to predict and we will be watching for the next one! Thanks again!

    Fonzie, it's too far out because the cold air supply looks marginal; but a few hours of snow is certainly possible on the western side of the surface low as it moves away. For now, I'm just mentioning a possible "mix" Sunday night. Something to watch though -:)

    Steve, I have been watchin other weather data and that upper low that's coming in it looks to be futher north. So is there a chance that this low could follow the river and come into southern OKlahoma? The others upper level low has done the same thing and took the river. So why do upper level lows like to follow the river? It seens like the last couples or time that everybody saids that we will not get any snow than it take a surpise turn and gets us everytime. Please let me know?

    Fonzie, I saw that too; but the trough that is creating the snow is moving ESE. Air currents on the south side of the trough are moving the individual snow elements ENE, but the overall track should be ESE. Since all of the models are locking in on the same solution, my confidence is high Texoma will get 1" of now or less....most places "LESS".

    The first batch of snow is developing in the panhandle and heading East Northeast...not south....I know the models say south but whats going on?

    Funny how everybody complains about the cool/cold/snowy weather. Give them about 4-5 months and they'll be wishing it were cool again.
