  1. It seems like this storm will miss central Oklahoma completely. I wonder if this will be the second year there is no snow while classes are in session at OU. The storm would be a little before classes start anyway, but I would hope some snow would stick around.
  2. Jan 3-4th Coastal Crusher OBS

    Still extremely light flakes here in Chapel Hill, but it's basically done.
  3. Jan 3-4th Coastal Crusher OBS

    Got about an inch here in Chapel Hill but it looks like it will stop soon.
  4. Mid to Long Term Discussion 2018

    But I want snow and I'm fine with extreme cold.
  5. Mid to Long Term Discussion 2018

    I wonder if this winter will wind up like 1969-70, with a ton of cold and not much snow.

    I'm pretty sure they always do a 30-year average for climate normals updated every decade. So the only thing that would matter is 1980s vs. 2010s.

    Where I was 2013-14 was pretty good, but not spectacular. I got about 8" in 2013-14 and 2014-15, which is only slightly above normal. The last winter with >150% normal snowfall for the Raleigh area was 2003-04, and that was also the last time Raleigh had a top 40 (out of 130) winter as far as snowfall goes.. 2009-10 had one great snowstorm and a few marginal events, but I wouldn't call that a spectacular winter.
  8. Southeast Sanitarium - A Place to Vent

    I'm missing out on the fun because I'm in Oklahoma now. It really sucks when Brownsville, TX gets snow before Norman, OK. We're like 20F colder in winter on average!
  9. Today is the 15th anniversary of the 2002 ice storm

    I was 4 at the time. It's the earliest weather event I have any memory of. I woke up, the power was out, and I was scared. My mom asked me if I heard tree branches falling down, but I slept thru it. We used candles for light some of the time, but the flickering scared me. Also, we tried going out to eat once but the lines were really long. I can't remember if we just waited or went home. Also, I was confused by the fact that light switches and electrical outlets were powered from the same source. I remember my mom commenting on how cold it was, but I don't remember it actually being cold.
  10. Arctic Sea Ice Extent, Area, and Volume

    The Bering and Chukchi Seas apparently have unprecedented levels of open water for this time of year. https://insideclimatenews.org/news/30112017/arctic-sea-ice-extent-record-chukchi-bering-sea-alaska-ocean?
  11. They look pretty close to average for central Oklahoma overall.
  12. OK/AR/KS/MO 2017 Autumn Disco and OBS.

    It looks like we'll get another powerful shot of cold air in about a week.
  13. OK/AR/KS/MO 2017 Autumn Disco and OBS.

    It's cool today but it looks like it will be near to above normal the rest of the week.
  14. OK/AR/KS/MO 2017 Autumn Disco and OBS.

    It's finally looking to cool off and rain some in the next few days. It might not get out of the 60s on Wednesday. And after the rain stops it looks like we're supposed to get pleasant weather with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s.
  15. Winter 17-18 Speculation

    I was looking through historical weather data, and Bismarck seems to get January rain once or twice a decade on average.
