Re: February 5-11-11 Winter Weather Advisories Issued

As I feared the radar is showing "building" returns to our W and SW. Radar and ground reports are now confirming that some of this is coming down as winter precip. Could be very messy aw we move into the afternoon unless this trend stops. Currently 33f here at the house in Spring Branch with continu...

Re: February 5-11-11 Winter Weather Advisories Issued

Kinda wonder with the temp dropping as fast as it is will the chill outrace the moisture and ice the roads? Also will the power lines ice over? With the stiff winds predicted for the area along with possible icy lines, I'm concerned about power outages. We work with many of the utility companies. T...

Re: February 5-11-11 Winter Weather Advisories Issued

I was noticing last night and it appears to be the case today that the front is "meandering" in as it comes. That was showing up last night even in W. TX and the DFW area. Fropa is imminent here if Steve has it. Oops, calling fropa at 10:18 in Spring Branch. Temp just started dropping from 44.1f. St...

Re: February 5-11-11 Winter Weather Advisories Issued

I wonder why this cold blast (and it's currently in the teens in the hill country) is not being tracked with as much enthusiasm as the last front? (I'm at 45 degrees in NW Houston near 249/Grant Rd. wind about 7 mph out of the NW) I suspect folks are feeling a bit burned by last weeks event and fra...

Re: February 1-5, 2011 Arctic Blast/Winter Storm Discussion

This is from Air Force Met at Storm2k. The rundown on our ice storm/not snow storm science I have heard. Meteorology 101. I've got lots of lessons learned for this past event. I am putting a bust review together and will be glad to share when its completed. I already know where the forecast when wr...

Re: February 1-5, 2011 Arctic Blast/Winter Storm Discussion

I am becoming interested in the next 5-7 days now. Watching local OCM's saying it won't be much. We shall ...
