Pre dawn on Friday?? Really??
Pre dawn on Friday?? Really??
How about far northeast Texas panhandle? The Amarillo weather guys are the suck so we have no idea what is going to happen out here!!
The wind in DFW the past 2 days has been ruthless. Even in the middle of the night, which is unusual.
NWS Norman video update
NAM showing generally 1/4 inch ice with isolated pockets of 1/2 to 3/4.
Going to depend on where exactly the low pivots to the north.
David Payne just showed some maps in his forecast and had the freezing line well south of OKC into Sunday. He had 0.25-0.50 for most of OKC and 0.75-1" north of a line from NW OKC up through Stillwater. But then he put up a graphic that said the ice would be a "nuisance" for OKC.
i predict at least 5 pages of whining that the weather people were wrong....
Well, we're planning on a visit to the BoK Center in downtown Tulsa this Friday evening. Hope the freezing line stays west of Tulsa.
80 degrees in Lawton
Appreciate all you weather guys, feels like we have own personal forecasts!
And lastly, we have not head from Doppler Dog but thats usually only once it gets close we can count on him for accurate late info.
I'm supposed to fly out of OKC at noon on Friday.
My area loses power when someone dumps their ice chest. Since we are end of the line we are last to get power restored.
I reserved a room for two nights at the casino. They have a generator. If I am iced in I plan on making the most of it.
it's already gusting 20mph out of the north at medford...
The wind, as usual, has ruined a very nice day temp wise. Bleh.
Odds of .10 inches of ice for you Tulsa folks
The neighborhood Wal Mart at Rock Creek and NW 36th in Norman was starting to run low on bread and some meat items…. It was pretty busy for 9 pm.
When is Edmond area getting this?
KFOR really seems to be playing up the worst case scenario.
It’s colder this morning than expected which likely means ice totals go up…
I would suggest that you be well prepared for this one……
Yep, not good. l bet freeze line moves further south.
KOCO TV CH5 Forecasting icing to start around 2 AM Friday morning in the metro.
They have the highest ice totals in the west OKC metro which could be in the ¾ to 1 inch range.
This is going to be a very serious ice storm for some folks.
OKC forecast high for Sunday is 50 degrees…..
For those who will be without heat / power it could be a lot colder
Edit - in fact, last night in Tri-cities they had us at .4-.5" of ice. Today it's .11".
