    Local mets saying we could end up with accumulating snow on Friday morning, northern areas possibly getting up to an inch.

    I'm in for a whopper....



    I'm right in the middle of the 18-24. I'm also at elevation...my ratios could go a touch higher.

    FINALLY! I've been waiting for a big storm like this ever since I got my plow.

    LOL! Congrats! Models were showing me getting hammered a week ago but I knew they weren't going to pan out...

    I am soooo jealous though...

    That would be perfect weather to play around in the truck in.







    Apparently Joe didn't pay attention in his driver's class to lock the T-case and use Brake-Throttle Modulation in deep snow. You can tell with his front tire not spinning when it should be. No reason he should have been stuck, even with those ancient ass bias ply tires on 8-bolt wheels (which are actually probably dangerous due to age at this point).

    Did I mention I'm jealous?

    Enjoy the last blast of winter!

    Looked out the window a minute ago and saw this...



    Appears to be some banding off the lakes. Must have been some of the heaviest snowfall rates I've seen this winter! And like *that* it just stopped... LOL! Left a small coating on everything.

    So we ended up with 20+. Honestly with all the blowing snow, I can't tell.

    Here's a quick timelapse. It was an experiment, but in a bad spot since the snow was deeper elsewhere. I think there are air currents around that spot that kept the snow low.

    Really cool time lapse! You could really see the snow pack growing with the night time shots.

    Good idea to take that!

    Here it's just really cold and a bit windy. The dusting from yesterday has stuck around, sort of.

    I think this late cold is just a big joke on me after I went and packed up my kerosene and electric heaters for the season.

    3 Storm Chasers Killed In Crash As Storms Roar Through Southern Plains

    March 29, 2017

    Storms that bore down on Southern Plains states brought powerful winds that upended a tractor-trailer on an Oklahoma interstate, killing the driver, while three storm chasers died in a collision as they raced toward a tornado-warned storm in West Texas, authorities said.

    The storms that struck Texas and Oklahoma late Tuesday brought tornadoes, tennis ball-sized hail and powerful winds, but no widespread damage was reported. It's just the beginning of what's expected to be a stormy week in Tornado Alley and in parts of the South.

    In Oklahoma, the truck driver was killed after strong winds pushed his rig off the interstate in El Reno, outside Oklahoma City, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. Forecasters confirmed a 95 mph (150 kph) wind gust in the area when the crash occurred.

    In Texas, the three storm chasers — including two who were contractors for The Weather Channel — were killed in a collision at a remote intersection near the town of Spur, about 55 miles (90 kilometers) southeast of Lubbock.



    The channel said in a statement that Kelley Williamson and Randy Yarnall were "beloved members of the weather community" who had worked as contractors for the channel. The Texas Department of Public Safety said the two died Tuesday along with another storm chaser, 25-year-old Corbin Lee Jaeger of Peoria, Arizona.

    Williamson and Yarnall were both from Cassville, Missouri.

    Department of Public Safety Sgt. John Gonzalez says a Chevrolet Suburban driven by Williamson ran a stop sign and slammed into a Jeep driven by Jaeger. Yarnall was a passenger in the Suburban. All three were killed instantly. Tornadoes had been reported nearby at the time of the crash and heavy rain had been reported in the area.

    The only time you can ignore stop signs is if the storm is bearing down upon you. Too bad they won't benefit from that lesson.

    Weather outlook for tomorrow isn't looking all that great. Could certainly do without the excitement. Have enough of that working on my truck as it is.

    Preparing for imminent butt holding onto...

    NWS Conference Call

    11:33 AM John Gordon hosting the call. States this event is a big deal. On on a scale of 1-10...this is an 8.

    11:34 AM Some will get missed completely. But the t-storms WILL turn severe. Not a "maybe".

    11:34 AM Expect hail. Not just large hail, but VERY LARGE hail.

    11:35 AM Tornado threat a bit more unclear. But damaging winds and hail the main issues.

    11:35 AM Forecast confidence is high. Someone in the area will experience large hail and/or a tornado.

    11:37 AM Damaging winds a threat as well. 60 mph +

    11:38 AM Tornado threat is in the low-medium category

    Thankfully dew points are lower than expected and only in the upper 40s right now. Local met said he prefers to see dew points in the mid-upper 50s for severe potential. Said they will be rising as the day progresses though.

    Winds have definitely picked up. Without an anemometer, if I had to guess, I'd say it's a now a steady 10-15 MPH with some occasional gusts 20-25 MPH, out of the S/SW.

    Went ahead and added a couple extra ratchet straps from my shelter frame to the truck's shackles, just to be on the safe side. If anything goes this time, it will be the fabric.

    Not under a tornado watch, let alone a severe thunderstorm watch but, a good bet that will be changing soon.

    Interestingly, I don't think they've postponed the Reds-Phillies yet. Doesn't seem like a good idea given the potential with this system.

    Dew point currently at 52. Local mets will be coming on the news at 4...

    Some cells starting to fire off to the southwest near Louisville... Warnings coming from some. Really surprised we're not even under a severe thunderstorm watch yet with the way they've talked up the potential. Pretty sure I've seen them issued for less threatening conditions.
