    Alaska/Western Canada obs and discussion

    Anchorage, AK set their all-time record high of 89°F yesterday, and looks to get into the mid-80s for the next few days as well. Most of Alaska has been a good bit warmer than normal so far this summer.
  3. Oklahoma City had its coldest January-June average temperature since 1993, and its fifth wettest such period on record.
  4. I've just seen a few sleet pellets and extremely wet snowflakes here in Norman. Right now no precipitation is falling.
  5. To me it looks like the HRRR is showing a weaker and more southerly precip shield.
  6. The OKC/Norman area got about 2" in January 2017. I was in NC at the time, but we got a similar amount of sleet from the same storm.

    Searching for Fall

    If the seven day forecast for Raleigh verifies, they could have their first September since records began without a low in the 50s.

    Just 37 and rain here in Durham.
  12. Maybe one of these years Oklahoma City will have more than 2.1" of snow.

    Mid to Long Term Discussion 2018

    I got measurable sleet 30 hours after 75-degree temperatures this week in Oklahoma. To be fair, we didn't have several days of 70s in a row, but still, it was in the 40s-60s most of the previous several days.

    Glacial Retreat Since 2007

    I was trying to do some reading on glacial retreat since about 2007, because most of the stuff I have found online seems to have data that stops around 2000-7. Does anyone have more recent information on what glaciers have been doing in the past decade? For example, most of the information in this Wikipedia article doesn't go past the end of the last decade. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Retreat_of_glaciers_since_1850
  15. It seems like it changed back over from sleet to freezing rain in Norman.
