It's supposed to get down into the low 50s tonight. I had to break out a zip fleece, but don't worry, I'm still rockin' shorts and Sanuks.
My daughter drove up to Stillwater today to drop some stuff off at her dorm. Sounds like the roads were pretty good.
You'll probably see several people using images like this for this weekend. Just know that A) It's 6-7 days out B) This will change because it all depends on the low pressure system
A lot of the people I communicate with are not native English speakers. I have to be concise and precise.
I've found that wordy paragraphs don't work. Typically I write single sentences, skip a line, and write another. Makes it easier to read and absorb.
A guy starts up a new business. A fish market. Places a big sign over the shop. "Fresh Fish Here"
A customer walks up and tells the owner his sign is too long. "You don't need Here in the sign. People already are here!"
So the owner changes the sign. "Fresh Fish"
Another customer walks up and says your sign is too long. "You don't need "Fresh" in the sign. People can see the fish are fresh"
So the owner shortens the sign to "Fish".
A customer walks up and tells the owner the sign is too long. "You don't need fish on the sign. People can smell them from two blocks away!"

QS9000 requires perfectly worded systems and procedures. "Shall" carries tremendous weight.,
So about this weekend weather. Best not lose power and cause me to miss the Boys/Packers game
Best question at this point is where the freezing line sets up. GFS all over the place with the freezing line, Euro has shifted a lot as well. The other question is freezing rain or sleet?
High of22 today?
**** that shit
So Channel 5 last night said rain on Friday but that the freezing line wouldn't move into OKC until about 7:00 PM. Then it would hang around through Saturday into Sunday. If that's the case then maybe we all at least make it home from work Friday before it gets nasty out.
Too obvious. I am experiencing a heady blend of shame and pride.
Of course there's also the issue of flooding rain for those who stay above freezing. Some places could see 4 inches this weekend.
Would just be nice if we could get through Friday without icy roads. Everyone seems to have a different thought. I've seen freezing rain Friday morning (disaster!!!!) to later in the day or evening when most people might be off the roads.
We have about 30 family members headed to OKC this Thursday/Friday for my wife's grandfather's 100th birthday party. I feel a cluster**** in the making with the pending weather forecast.
So does freezing rain automatically mean ice storm with all of the tree destruction and power outages and all that....or is still possible we don't get that whole mess?
I'll just take what the NWS Norman has said
Confidence is high that a storm system will arrive Friday and into the weekend
Confidence is high that parts of Ok will see winter weather
Confidence is high that most of OK won't see much snow because the main precip will be sleet/freezing rain
Confidence is low on where exactly the freezing line will be
Confidence is low on when the system will move out
Confidence is low on when the cold air arrives (Late Friday? Early Friday? etc.)
Confidence is high that we could see flooding in areas that get just rain
Driving to KC for a soccer tourney Friday, this ought to be fun.
Good news for OKC/Tulsa, models are trending warmer and putting the freezing line farther NW. It still drops the freezing line through Norman and OKC for a period of time, but pushes it back to the NW, so it would mainly be a cold rain event. NW of OKC though would see the major ice. This of course will change again, but good to see the freezing line trend farther NW.
Also, good graphic via the NWS for the difference between Snow, sleet and Freezing rain
