  1. A couple of my phone shots from south of Mangum. .
  2. Pictures I took of tornado about six miles north of Wagoner,OK. .
  3. 43 days would put it at Jan 13th, 2019. That map just shows the number of days since the NWS office's responsibility area was in winter storm warning.
  4. I raced home to beat that storm the day before it happened... It was fun driving around town looking at all the people in minivans stuck in the snow. My truck sits high off the ground and was still hitting the snow with the bumper in areas. I'd love for that to happen again...
  5. Listening to OHP right now on the scanner and I know they are working multiple multi-car crashes right now.
  6. Probably jinxing us here now.. 744 FXUS64 KTSA 012111 AFDTSA Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tulsa OK 311 PM CST Sat Dec 1 2018 .DISCUSSION... The main forecast concern will be winter weather potential late next week/weekend. Deep cyclonic flow over much of the CONUS will maintain below average temps thru the first part of next week. After a brief period of modification next week, the weather will be taking a downward trend toward the latter part of next week and into next weekend. The broad upper trough over the CONUS, carved out by the strong upper jet that helped bring the severe weather last night, slides east by midweek, and the upstream split flow pattern over the eastern Pacific will be broken down by jet stream energy to its west. A shortwave trough in the southern stream will advance east across the southern tier of states late next week and weekend, throwing a slug of moisture over the region. Coincidentally, northern stream trough energy is expected to drop southeast out of Canada, forcing surface high pressure and cold air south thru the Plains. This one-two punch will bring the potential for wintry weather, possibly significant, by next weekend. The operational GFS is the warmest of all the solutions and is generally not favored with its poor handling of cold air. The ECMWF and GFS-FV3, while they differ in timing and the details, both show the idea of a southern stream storm moving by to our south with wintry weather occurring over at least a portion of the forecast area. The details will continue to be ironed out in the coming days. Stay tuned. Lacy
  7. My WX station has been teetering between 32 and 33 here on the SE side of Broken Arrow. Had some sleet for a few minutes a couple hours ago.
  8. Will need to watch. Rocklahoma is this weekend near Pryor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I've came across a scene like that chasing here in Oklahoma. It was pouring rain and small hail. Luckily, I wasn't driving too fast, but could barely see them with all the rain. Myself and other chasers had to lay on horn for what seemed like a minute to get someone to move so we could get through. People are stupid.
  10. Truth. I worked at a grocery store during the 2002 ice storm. The day after power went out, we had a line all the way to the back of the store. Bread and can isle was bare afterwards.
  11. I was in the Enid ice storm 2002. The city lost power for five days. It wasn't the in city lines that went down, the feeder lines from the power plant to the city went down, along with the poles. The city put salt on the roads, but it was slick for quite a while. A friend that works for the city said the trucks had issues getting gas, since no where had electricity to pump. It was bad. http://climate.ok.gov/summaries/event/Oklahoma_Ice_Storm_01_2002.pdf
  12. TUL AFD looks like they favor the EC / Canadian temperature profile and the GFS precipitation numbers.
  13. Broken Arrow schools closed. I can remember having several inches of snow and still having school when I was younger.
