WEATHER BEAT: More Winter Weather this Weekend

This next storm I am tracking is a tricky storm. The last storm was easy; it was all snow. This storm we have many factors to watch. The biggest factor is trying to figure out how quickly the cold temperatures will retreat. The high has moved further south allowing for milder air to push into the region, at least temporarily. The latest trend has been much cooler than the original thinking of mid-50s. Sunday may now only get to around 40 degrees. This will allow for a prolonged period of wintry precipitation, whether that is snow or sleet or freezing rain.

My thinking for the Bristow area is about two to four inches of snow beginning around 1pm on Saturday and lasting thru Sunday morning. By around 6pm on Saturday, many areas will begin to see a wintry mix with most areas seeing plain rain by 8pm. All precipitation will move out Sunday morning. Once the storm passes, temperatures will return to the 30s and we should stay in the 30s for much of next week. In fact, the remainder of February will likely feature temperatures just below average.

Stay safe out there and I will continue to post updates on my Facebook page.

My favorite thing to do is study the weather. It is truly fascinating. Nothing beats a good thunderstorm. I became very interested in weather when I lived in Okinawa, Japan for four years and was actually inside a super typhoon.
