Interesting surface OBS

Notice the obs throughout specially the look at the warm pocket of moving parcels located on the downslope side of I-70....pretty cool given dewpoints r dead!

Still in the process of accepting this new look to my blogpage....will see...

By the way it's called WAA here is the 925 temps...

Battle of the Pressures!

What once look to be promising 132 hrs has fizzled out once again...The Pacific Low is making its way into CO but remaining in the four corners and moving southeast into TX leaving chances of snow on the front range into plains very hopeless...Thurs into Fri night could see the only chance of precip if convection happens....more wind with CAA which is blowcrap if you ask me? I guess that's why they call it Battle of the Pressures! Low- 0 wins High- don't ask

Southern Pacific Low

The low I've been monitoring sitting off the coast of California has prompted forecast models to look presumptuous in attempting its actual first four corner low setup bringing in chances of snow into Colorado for prolly the worst day. Thanksgiving on the 27th will bring joy to some eating turkey inside, but for those traveling will have something they haven't seen at all this year. The first actual real snow that actually sticks to the ground for more than 2-3 hours....

Hope all those going down have a great time! Will be watching the skies for upslope snow instead of watching for supercells exploding.....all good though....peace out

Oklahoma where the wind bloweth....

Dann, Shep, & I ventured a long 25.5 hours of continuous motion! All seasons, all weather, all was experienced...amazing considering a 15% hatched tornado risk turned out not to be a factor considering one dynamic force was missing....mid-surface level winds was a guessing factor for both Dann & I...sunset, wind, cold rain, snow, leading edge of cold front, sunrise, cirrus, cumo field, warm, hot, humid, southerly winds, beautiful summer feeling, severe weather, hail chamber, tremendous outflow, warm rain, sunset, updraft motion, scuds, lightning, dryline, meso, wind, pouring rain, flooding, IC-CC lightning show, clear, rain, blasting CAA, stratoCU bands, sunrise.
Most of the chasing covered the terrain of Oklahoma!
