  1. It looks like it's just supposed to be a cold rain for Norman, unfortunately.
  2. We got a little under 3" here in Norman. It seems like we were in a bit of a snow hole, with more precipitation in every direction around us. Nevertheless, it was the biggest snowfall I've ever seen here.
  3. Update: there's now a sleet/freezing rain mix in Norman.
  4. It's just 30F and cloudy here, with no snow or sleet yet. But I did see a bit of drizzle this evening.
  5. There seems to have been a bit of a NW trend recently. I hope Norman doesn't wind up being too far south.
  6. The NAM looks pretty good for all of central OK, even areas S of I-44, IMO. Of course, that could all change in the next 36 hours.
  7. In OKC we're having what would be average for Dallas, with a grand total of 9.6" of snow and four days of snow cover since March of 2015. Wait that's actually below normal even for Dallas. Lol. Tulsa's doing even worse than us, and they even average slightly more snow. Springfield is also having snow amounts that are more in line with normal for Little Rock, and Wichita is having what would be considered below-normal years in OKC.
  8. Raleigh's up to a 29% chance of blanking this winter just given climo on no measurable snow thru the 25th. Meanwhile, OKC luckily avoided blanking on winter with a whopping 0.1" of snow on the morning of the 22nd when I was asleep.
  9. I wonder if OKC will get their fourth sub-3" snowfall winter in five years. So far, that seems pretty likely.
  10. It was the third warmest year on record in the UAH dataset: https://www.drroyspencer.com/2020/01/uah-global-temperature-update-for-december-2019-0-56-deg-c/
  11. I just wanna pop in from Oklahoma and say that we've been doing poorly in the snow department as well. Oklahoma City averages 8" of snow a winter and has only gotten 9.5" total since March 2015. That's more like what you'd expect from a place like Dallas. And the past two winters had below-normal temperatures, so we've just had a lot of dry, windy cold, which is annoying
  12. The 5-day mean is still in third place for lowest extent, but it's near a lot of other years.
  13. Did you not read that it was just a record for October.
  14. I saw about six snowflakes and some very light freezing drizzle in Norman this morning, but now it's just cloudy, cold, windy, and dry.
  15. I wonder how much longer that will last. I do find it interesting how every month from July 2018 to now except September 2019 has been below normal in OKC, yet the planet as a whole is experiencing near-record to record warmth.
