Plains States Observations and Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

The other KS/MO/AR thread is kind of like that, but right now they are in winter mode it seems.  I never felt comfortable in it.

SLGT risk today, then cooler wx next week.  Can't wait!

We're almost exclusive winter mode there. Everyone disappears from that thread during the Spring/Summer until it's time to talk about winter again. The big severe thunderstorm outbreaks get their own thread. Otherwise there is/was a thread for short term discussion on flood/severe weather threats outside of the big days. And a thread for talking about the severe threats down the line in the medium range. This thread looks to cover observations.

GFS moving towards a Euro solution with a fairly robust Colorado low developing in the 7day range and propagating to the ENE. Mountain snows and snow levels dropping to near surface in East MT/W ND as it stacks.

It's been very windy the fast two days. Yesterday the wind made it hard to run or bike south. Today it wasn't quite as bad but the wind chill could be annoying. I'm looking forward to what looks to be our first freeze tonight.

After a dry start to March, we've had some nice rains the past few weeks. There was supposedly hail in Norman today, but I was in class at the time. It hit 91 in March but hasn't gotten above 84 yet this April.

We got some nice thunderstorms here in Norman last night. It was the most significant rain we got since I returned here in late June. I really liked the cool weather this morning. Also, am I the only person from Oklahoma and states north on this forum? I feel like there's almost no one from my area for whatever reason.
