Re: February 2021: Arctic Outbreak/Winter Storm Warning ⚠️

Finally getting a transition to more snow than sleet here in Katy.

Also have been without power now for 2 hours. Went out right at 2:15am. Temp inside is 60° and outside temp is 15°.

Re: February 2021: Arctic Outbreak/Winter Storm Warning ⚠️

Judging by the correlation coefficient on radarscope, looks like everything to the left of the blue line is all snow. I feel confident this will all end in snow and give at least most of us an inch. I agree though, 19° here with heavy sleet is quite annoying.

Re: February 2021: Arctic Outbreak/Winter Storm Warning ⚠️

Sky lit up in blue as a transformer blew and power went out across the street from me. Highway 99 pitch black and all the stores along the feeder. Wind is howling through my doors and windows are just getting pelted with sleet. If I was in a coma and I was just waking up in my bed, I'd think it was ...

Re: February 2021: Arctic Outbreak/Winter Storm Warning ⚠️

Not snowing here in Katy, yet. But absolutely coming down in sheets with sleet. By far the heaviest sleet I've ever seen. Had a heavy sleet event in Oklahoma when I lived up there back in 2013, but nothing like this.

Re: February 2021: Arctic Outbreak/Winter Storm Warning ⚠️

Fascinating to watch the snow wall out west heading in our direction. What I have circled in blue under the mesoscale discussion is what I'm watching. Currently all snow and will be interesting to see if the intensity of it holds as it pushes ENE. If you have radarscope, you can play it from the KEW...

Re: February 2021: Arctic Outbreak/Winter Storm Warning ⚠️

Austin has quickly fallen into teens and CLL is nearing 20°. Temps will rapidly fall tonight as the trough moves through around 2am here in SETX. This is going to be a one-two punch as the heaviest sleet/snow will begin falling between 2-6am.

Re: February 2021: Arctic Outbreak/Winter Storm Warning ⚠️

The transition from pink to the gray/bluish (wind chill warnings) will begin encompassing much of TX next 24 hours. Technically much of the warnings are already there, but winter storm warnings are overshadowing them right now. Two rare warnings to see from the northern to southern border. www.png

Re: February 2021: Arctic Outbreak/Winter Storm Warning ⚠️

Reports that the Grand Parkway is closed at Katy Freeway because of ice on the road. I can see 99 & I-10 out from my balcony and there are emergency lights along 99. It looks like they have the flyovers closed and not the freeway itself since I can still see cars traveling both north and southbound.

Re: February 2021: Arctic Outbreak/Winter Storm Warning ⚠️

Been raining off and on for the last few hours and now lightly sleeting. All the trees and vegetation are becoming very stiff with a thin glaze of ice forming on them. You can hear the icy noise in the wind when the branches are hitting one another. I'm right off of I-10 & 99 in Katy and right aroun...
