A COUPLE MORE WEAK COLD FRONTS WILL AFFECT THE FA THIS WEEK. THESE 
FRONTS WILL HAVE VERY LITTLE IMPACT ON THE AREA. THE FIRST WEAK 
FRONT WILL MOVE ACROSS THE AREA LATE TONIGHT/WEDNESDAY AS A MID LVL 
DISTURBANCE MOVES FROM THE CENTRAL ROCKIES INTO THE SOUTHERN PLAINS. 
NO PRECIP IS EXPECTED WITH THIS FRONT AND DISTURBANCE. IN FACT THE 
ONLY IMPACTS EXPECTED ARE A WIND SHIFT TO THE NORTH AND HAMPERING 
ANY MAJOR WARM-UP WEDNESDAY. WARMER TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED 
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY WITH HIGHS IN THE 60S AT MANY LOCATIONS BOTH 
DAYS. THE WILDFIRE POTENTIAL WILL INCREASE LATE IN THE WORK WEEK DUE 
TO THE WARM TEMPS AND LOW RH BUT WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN BELOW 
RED FLAG CRITERIA. THE SECOND MENTIONED WEAK COLD FRONT WILL MOVE 
INTO AND ACROSS PARTS OF THE FA FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY. THIS 
FRONT WILL COOL TEMPERATURES SOME SATURDAY COMPARED TO THE LATTER 
HALF OF THE WORK WEEK BUT STILL REMAIN WELL ABOVE NORMAL WITH TEMPS 
IN THE 50S AND LOW 60S. 

COOLER TEMPS...CLOSER TO NORMAL... WILL BE POSSIBLE SUNDAY. 
PRECIPITATION WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE SUNDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT IN SOUTH 
AND EASTERN PORTIONS OF THE FA... AS A DISTURBANCE MOVES ACROSS 
TEXAS. IT IS AROUND THIS TIME THAT THE GFS AND ECMWF BEGIN TO 
DIVERGE. THE ECMWF HAS A STRONG SURGE OF ARCTIC AIR MOVING INTO THE 
REGION SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY WITH PRECIP POSSIBLE. THE PRECIP THEN 
MOVES EAST OF THE AREA MONDAY NIGHT AS UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE MOVES 
EAST OF THE FA. MEANWHILE... THE GFS DOES ALSO SHOW SOME COLD AIR 
MOVING IN SUNDAY NIGHT/MONDAY BUT HOLDS MOST OF THE PRECIP WEST OR 
AT LEAST IN WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE FA UNTIL MON NIGHT AND TUES WHEN 
IT FINALLY MOVES EAST ACROSS THE FA AS A DISTURBANCE MOVES EAST 
ACROSS THE SOUTHERN PLAINS. WITH THE DIFFERENCES/INCONSISTENCIES 
HAVE LOW POPS IN THROUGH MONDAY THEN WILL KEEP DRY PAST THAT TIME 
FOR NOW. WITH THE COLD AIR MOVING INTO THE REGION DURING THIS TIME 
FRAME... HAVE A MENTION OF WINTRY PRECIP IN THE FORECAST.

UPPER TROUGH AND SFC COLD FRONT WILL MOVE SE ACROSS THE AREA TODAY
WITH LITTLE EFFECT ON SENSIBLE WEATHER OTHER THAN A WIND SHIFT TO
THE NNW. WARMING TREND TO FOLLOW THU INTO FRI UNDER FAVORABLE
DOWNSLOPE FLOW CONDITIONS. 

TRANSITION TOWARD COOLER/COLDER CONDITIONS WILL BEGIN BY SATURDAY
AS ARCTIC FRONT SAGS INTO OK AND COLDER AIR OOZES INTO N OK WHILE
N TX AND S OK REMAIN WARM. WE ARE LEANING TOWARD THE MORE-
CONSISTENT ECMWF OVER THE GFS... WHICH WOULD HAVE THE SFC FRONT
HANGING OUT ACROSS OK MOST OF THE WEEKEND BEFORE THE COLDER AIR
KICKS IN ON MONDAY. THIS IS IN KEEPING WITH THE WAY THINGS HAVE
BEEN GOING IN GENERAL WITH THE COLD AIR THIS SEASON. HIGH AND LOW
TEMPERATURES ARE LIABLE TO GET TRICKY OVER THE WEEKEND DEPENDING
ON WHERE THE FRONT ENDS UP... BUT IN GENERAL WE LOOK FOR THE
COLDER AIR TO GET A FOOTHOLD ON N/NW OK BY SUNDAY WHILE THE S/SE
ZONES STAY RELATIVELY MILD UNTIL LATE MONDAY. BOTTOM IS LIKELY TO
FALL OUT IN ALL AREAS BY MONDAY NIGHT THOUGH... AND IF THE ECMWF
IS RIGHT THERE WOULD BE FALLING TEMPS IN MANY AREAS DURING THE DAY
MONDAY. ALTHOUGH WE ARE LEANING TOWARD THE ECMWF... OUR SOURCE
REGION FOR THIS COLD AIR OVER INTERIOR ALASKA AND NW CANADA HAS
ACTUALLY WARMED UP RELATIVE TO JUST A FEW DAYS AGO. AND WITH NO
SFC ANTICYCLONES UP NORTH... IT IS HARD TO BUY INTO A 1051 HIGH
OVER MT BY TUESDAY AND 504 THICKNESSES INTO OK BY TUE NIGHT. OUR
TEMPERATURES FOR MONDAY AND TUESDAY ARE VERY CLOSE TO THE LATEST
HPC MAX/MIN GUIDANCE AND ARE WELL BELOW THE GFS-MOS NUMBERS. WE
PROBABLY WILL BE LOOKING AT WIND CHILLS APPROACHING IF NOT
REACHING ADVISORY LEVELS BY MONDAY NIGHT IF THE ECMWF IS RIGHT.

THE PREVAILING DRY PATTERN MAKES IT HARD TO GET EXCITED ABOUT ANY
CHANCE OF PRECIP. WE WILL GO WITH SOME LOW POPS IN OUR S/SE FOR
RAIN SAT NIGHT AND SUNDAY AS AN UPPER LOW MOVES ACROSS N TX.
SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY ARE MORE PROBLEMATIC IN TERMS OF PRECIP
TYPE... BUT THE TREND CERTAINLY WILL BE TOWARD FREEZING-FROZEN BY
MONDAY NIGHT. THERE IS SOME CHANCE OF A SNOWY OR ICY MESS AROUND
SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY BASED ON THE LATEST ECMWF/UKMET... BUT WE
WILL KEEP THE POPS ON THE LOW SIDE UNTIL WE SEE BETTER MODEL

WARMER TEMPERATURES EXPECTED OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. WITH 
MAINLY DOWNSLOPE CONDITIONS... HIGHS IN THE 60S AND 70S ARE 
POSSIBLE. THE WARM TEMPERATURES WILL ALSO COMBINE WITH LOW 
HUMIDITIES TO ELEVATE THE WILDFIRE POTENTIAL. HOWEVER... WINDS ARE 
EXPECTED TO REMAIN RELATIVELY LIGHT SO DO NOT EXPECT ANY FIRE WX 
HEADLINES AT THIS TIME. MODELS SHOW A WEAK COLD FRONT MOVING INTO 
PARTS OF THE FA FRI NIGHT/SATURDAY REDUCING TEMPS FROM THE LEVELS OF 
THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS IN SOME PLACES SAT AFTN. HOWEVER... STILL 
REMAIN RELATIVELY WARM AND ABOVE NORMAL WITH ELEVATED WILDFIRE 
POTENTIAL ONCE AGAIN IN PARTS OF THE FA. THE MOVEMENT/POSITION OF 
THIS FRONT WILL ALSO HAVE AN IMPACT ON TEMP FORECAST FOR SAT.

THE WEATHER PICTURE THEN BECOMES SOMEWHAT MUDDLED IN THE MODELS INTO 
EARLY NEXT WEEK. BOTH MODELS SHOW A GENERAL COOLING TREND SUNDAY 
INTO MONDAY AS COOLER AIR BEGINS TO OOZE INTO THE REGION. A COLDER 
AIRMASS WILL THEN BE IN PLACE BY TUESDAY. MODELS CONT TO DIFFER TO 
THE PATH/TIMING/EVOLUTION OF SYSTEMS THAT MOVE ACROSS THE WESTERN 
U.S. AND DISTURBANCES IN THE NORTHERN BRANCH OF THE UPR FLOW. THIS 
WILL HAVE AN AFFECT ON THE TIMING OF THE COLDER AIR AND PRECIP 
CHANCES. RIGHT NOW A DISTURBANCE IS EXPECTED TO MOVE ACROSS TEXAS 
OVER THE WEEKEND BRINGING A SLIGHT CHANCE OF PRECIP...FALLING IN THE 
FORM OF RAIN... SAT NIGHT INTO SUNDAY. THE SLIGHT CHANCES WILL THEN 
CONT THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT AS THE NEXT SYSTEMS AFFECT THE REGION.

CEILINGS AND VISIBILITIES ARE EXPECTED TO BE UNRESTRICTED AT TAF
SITES THROUGH 06Z TOMORROW NIGHT. HOWEVER... CANNOT COMPLETELY
RULE OUT RADIATION FOG EARLY THURSDAY MORNING IN PROTECTED AREAS...
ESPECIALLY NEAR LAKES OR RIVERS. WINDS WILL BE LIGHT OVERNIGHT...
THEN INCREASE FROM THE WEST ON THURSDAY AS DAYTIME HEATING
ENHANCES LOW-LEVEL VERTICAL MIXING. WINDS WILL THEN SUBSIDE AROUND
SUNSET AS THE MIXING DIMINISHES AGAIN.

DISCUSSION...
WARMER TEMPERATURES EXPECTED OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. WITH 
MAINLY DOWNSLOPE CONDITIONS... HIGHS IN THE 60S AND 70S ARE 
POSSIBLE. THE WARM TEMPERATURES WILL ALSO COMBINE WITH LOW 
HUMIDITIES TO ELEVATE THE WILDFIRE POTENTIAL. HOWEVER... WINDS ARE 
EXPECTED TO REMAIN RELATIVELY LIGHT SO DO NOT EXPECT ANY FIRE WX 
HEADLINES AT THIS TIME. MODELS SHOW A WEAK COLD FRONT MOVING INTO 
PARTS OF THE FA FRI NIGHT/SATURDAY REDUCING TEMPS FROM THE LEVELS OF 
THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS IN SOME PLACES SAT AFTN. HOWEVER... STILL 
REMAIN RELATIVELY WARM AND ABOVE NORMAL WITH ELEVATED WILDFIRE 
POTENTIAL ONCE AGAIN IN PARTS OF THE FA. THE MOVEMENT/POSITION OF 
THIS FRONT WILL ALSO HAVE AN IMPACT ON TEMP FORECAST FOR SAT.

THE WEATHER PICTURE THEN BECOMES SOMEWHAT MUDDLED IN THE MODELS INTO 
EARLY NEXT WEEK. BOTH MODELS SHOW A GENERAL COOLING TREND SUNDAY 
INTO MONDAY AS COOLER AIR BEGINS TO OOZE INTO THE REGION. A COLDER 
AIRMASS WILL THEN BE IN PLACE BY TUESDAY. MODELS CONT TO DIFFER TO 
THE PATH/TIMING/EVOLUTION OF SYSTEMS THAT MOVE ACROSS THE WESTERN 
U.S. AND DISTURBANCES IN THE NORTHERN BRANCH OF THE UPR FLOW. THIS 
WILL HAVE AN AFFECT ON THE TIMING OF THE COLDER AIR AND PRECIP 
CHANCES. RIGHT NOW A DISTURBANCE IS EXPECTED TO MOVE ACROSS TEXAS 
OVER THE WEEKEND BRINGING A SLIGHT CHANCE OF PRECIP...FALLING IN THE 
FORM OF RAIN... SAT NIGHT INTO SUNDAY. THE SLIGHT CHANCES WILL THEN 
CONT THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT AS THE NEXT SYSTEMS AFFECT THE REGION. 
WITH THE COLDER AIR MOVING IN... THIS WILL LEAD TO A CHANCE OF 
WINTRY PRECIPITATION ACROSS PARTS OF THE FA. WILL KEEP POPS LOW AS 
STILL GREAT UNCERTAINTIES ON HOW THINGS WILL EVOLVE AND THE PROBABLE 
LACK OF ABUNDANT MOISTURE AVAILABLE FOR ANY PRECIP.

.DISCUSSION...
DECENT WARMUP NEXT FEW DAYS WITH DOWNSLOPE WESTERLIES AT THE SFC. 
NAM12 SFC T HAS DONE WELL RECENTLY ON THE HIGHS ACCORDING TO LOCAL
VERIFICATION DATA. RECENT RUNS SUPPORT 60S TODAY AND LOW 70S
FRIDAY OVER MOST OF THE AREA. MOST RECENT NAM AND ECMWF RUNS HOLD
OFF ANY BACK-DOOR COLD INTRUSIONS INTO OK UNTIL SAT NIGHT... SO
SATURDAY ALSO IS LIKELY TO FEATURE SPRINGLIKE TEMPS OVER MOST OF
THE AREA. FRONT IS LIKELY TO BE VERY CLOSE TO FAR N OK IF NOT INTO
THE STATE... SO HIGHS ON SATURDAY COULD STILL BE A CHALLENGE NEAR
THE KS BORDER. WILDFIRE POTENTIAL WILL BE ELEVATED EACH AFTERNOON
THROUGH SATURDAY DUE TO WARM DRY CONDITIONS... BUT WINDS WILL BE
RELATIVELY LIGHT MOST OF THE TIME. SATURDAY MAY BE THE DAY OF
GREATEST CONCERN DUE TO SLIGHTLY STRONGER WINDS.

CHILLDOWN IS LIKELY TO COMMENCE SAT NIGHT AND SUNDAY AS SFC FRONT 
MOVES S IN WAKE OF AN UPPER LOW MOVING ACROSS N TX. WE WILL KEEP
SOME LOW POPS GOING FOR -RA OVER MUCH OF THE SE PART OF THE CWA
SAT NIGHT AND SUNDAY. ANY PRECIP SHOULD END BEFORE ENOUGH COLD AIR
ARRIVES TO FORCE A CHANGEOVER.

FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK IS LOOKING MORE TROUBLESOME IN TERMS OF SNOW 
AND ICE. MED-RANGE MODELS STILL DIFFER ON TIMING OF THE SYSTEM 
ARRIVING ON THE OR-CA COAST EARLY SUNDAY AND INTO THE S PLAINS FIRST 
HALF OF NEXT WEEK. BUT THEY APPEAR TO BE CONVERGING ON A SCENARIO 
THAT WOULD GIVE US A PRECIP LULL AROUND MONDAY IN WAKE OF THE 
WEEKEND SYSTEM... FOLLOWED BY INCREASIHG CHANCES MON NIGHT THROUGH 
TUE NIGHT. PROBLEM IS THAT THE CANADIAN AIR WILL BE ON THE OFFENSIVE 
DURING THIS PERIOD AND WILL EITHER BE MOVING INTO THE AREA OR WILL 
ALREADY BE IN PLACE. ECMWF REMAINS MORE AGGRESSIVE THAN THE GFS ON 
THE ARCTIC HIGH INTRUSION INTO THE S PLAINS MONDAY... AND WOULD BE 
THE MORE LIKELY SCENARIO IF THERE WERE ALREADY A BIG ARCTIC HIGH
AND A LOT OF BITTER COLD AIR UP THERE RIGHT NOW. BUT THERE ISNT.
THE ECMWF IN FACT HAS BACKED OFF FROM YESTERDAY'S 1051 HIGH OVER
MT AND 504 THICKNESS INTO OK NEXT TUE... BUT MODEL CONSENSUS STILL
SUPPORTS A 1040-SOMETHING HIGH INTO THE N PLAINS MONDAY WHICH WILL
PUSH COLDER AIR INTO THE REGION WHILE THE UPPER SYSTEM APPROACHES
FROM NM. FORECAST THUS PRESENTS A MORE GRADUAL CHILLDOWN OVER THE
SUNDAY-TUESDAY PERIOD - BUT A SIGNIFICANT ONE NONETHELESS. LARGE-
SCALE EVOLUTION OF FEATURES ON CURRENT MED-RANGE MODELS IS PRETTY
TYPICAL OF A HEAVY-SNOW EVENT IN THE S PLAINS... BUT THE MORE
GRADUAL INJECTION OF LOW-LEVEL COLD AIR SUGGESTS A CONCURRENT
POTENTIAL FOR A PERIOD OF ICE BEFORE THE COLD AIR WINS OUT AND
SNOW PREVAILS BY THE END OF THE EVENT. POPS HAVE BEEN INCREASED
MON NIGHT INTO TUE NIGHT PER LATEST GFS GUIDANCE. TEMPS LATE IN
THE FORECAST AGAIN ARE CLOSE TO LATEST HPC GUIDANCE.

SYSTEM NEXT WEEK COULD GO IN ANY OF SEVERAL DIRECTIONS - MOSTLY SNOW 
OR MOSTLY ICE OF SOME OF EVERYTHING. WOULD NOT EVEN BE SURPRISED AT 
COLD AND DRY WITH LITTLE OR NO PRECIP GIVEN THE WAY THINGS HAVE BEEN 
GOING LATELY. WE WILL HIT IT A LITTLE HARDER IN THE HWO... BUT WILL 
EMPHASIZE THE EXISTING UNCERTAINTIES ON DETAILS INCLUDING TIMING... 
AMOUNTS... AND PRECIP TYPE/S.

.DISCUSSION...
FASTEN THE SEAT BELTS... THE WEATHER'S ROLLER COASTER RIDE IS
STARTING UP. TEMPERATURES WILL INITIALLY WARM UP TO WELL ABOVE
NORMAL BEFORE THEY PLUNGE INTO THE ICY COLD.

WEST TO SOUTHWEST WINDS AND GENERALLY SUNNY SKIES WILL ALLOW
TEMPERATURES TO WARM INTO THE UPPER 60S TO MID 70S OVER A GOOD
PART OF THE REGION TODAY. THE UNSEASONABLY WARM TEMPERATURES AND
DRY AIR WILL RESULT IN LOW HUMIDITIES BY THIS AFTERNOON WHICH WILL
INCREASE FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS... ESPECIALLY OVER WESTERN PORTIONS
OF OK AND NORTH TX. HOWEVER... IT APPEARS THE WINDS WILL BE
ON THE MODERATE SIDE... GENERALLY RUNNING 15 MPH OR LOWER...
ALTHOUGH MIXING COULD RESULT IN SOME GUSTS AROUND 20 MPH.
TEMPERATURES WILL BE A BIT COOLER ON SUNDAY IN NORTHERN OK AS A
COLD FRONT WAFFLES INTO THE AREA... BUT HIGHS WILL STILL RUN WELL
ABOVE SEASONAL AVERAGES IN MOST AREAS.

AN UPPER LOW... LOCATED OFF THE COAST OF NORTHERN BAJA EARLY THIS
MORNING... WILL LIFT OUT TO THE EAST DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF
DAYS. WHILE MOST OF THE RAIN WITH THIS SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO BE
WILL BE OVER EASTERN TX... SOME OF IT MAY ALSO SPILL INTO SE OK.
MEANWHILE... A LARGE COLD HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE OVER CANADA WILL
DROP SOUTHWARD AND PUSH A COLD FRONT THROUGH THE AREA SATURDAY
NIGHT AND EARLY SUNDAY... DROPPING HIGH TEMPERATURES 20 TO 25
DEGREES FOR SUNDAY. SOME LIGHT MIXED WINTRY PRECIPITATION WILL BE
POSSIBLE SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY MAINLY ACROSS NORTHERN OK WITH
LIGHT RAIN/DRIZZLE FARTHER SOUTH.

AS TEMPERATURES CONTINUE TO CHILL DOWN... ANOTHER STORM SYSTEM WILL
APPROACH THE AREA EARLY NEXT WEEK... BRINGING A BETTER POSSIBILITY
FOR A MIX OF WINTER PRECIPITATION. WHILE THE DETAILS DIFFER AMONG
THE MODELS... BOTH THE GFS AND ECMWF SPREAD SOME PRECIPITATION
OVER THE AREA BY TUESDAY... WITH THE GFS STARTING IT A LITTLE
SOONER AND GENERATING MORE QPF IN GENERAL. THE CHANCE FOR
FREEZING/FROZEN PRECIP WILL PROGRESS SOUTH THROUGH THE FA MONDAY
NIGHT AND TUESDAY. WHILE THERE IS REASONABLE CONFIDENCE IN THE
DEVELOPMENT OF WINTRY PRECIPITATION... THERE CONTINUES TO BE
CONSIDERABLE UNCERTAINTY ATTM CONCERNING THE EXACT TIMING... PHASE TYPE
AND AMOUNT OF THE PRECIP. 

ALONG WITH THE COLD TEMPERATURES... BRISK NORTH WINDS WILL AT
TIMES RESULT IN SUB ZERO WIND CHILL TEMPERATURES TUE/WED OVER
THE NORTHERN HALF OF OK.

ANOTHER VERY MILD DAY TODAY IS EXPECTED TO BE FOLLOWED BY ANOTHER 
MILD DAY ON SATURDAY AS W/SW LOW LEVEL FLOW CONT TO BRING WARM AIR 
OFF MEXICAN PLATEAU. WEAK SFC FRONT MAY SLIP INTO NORTHERN OKLAHOMA 
DURING THE DAY... BUT SHOULD DO LITTLE MORE THAN ACT AS A WIND SHIFT. 
THERE WILL CONT TO BE FIRE WX CONCERNS ON SAT AS VERY WARM... BREEZY 
AND DRY AIR CONT TO RESIDE ACROSS OKLAHOMA AND NORTH TEXAS. 

UPPER WAVE NEAR BAJA WILL EJECT EAST THROUGH TX OVER THE WEEKEND 
BRINGING A SLIGHT CHANCE OF RAIN TO PORTIONS OF SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA. 
AS THIS WAVE MOVES BY IT WILL BEGIN TO BRING SOUTH COOLER AIR 
CURRENTLY ACROSS THE NORTHERN PLAINS. OUR ATTENTION THEN TURNS TO 
UPPER WAVE OFF THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST COAST AND ITS MOVEMENT TOWARD 
THE AREA EARLY NEXT WEEK... AS WELL AS COLDER AIR TAKING SHAPE 
ACROSS CANADA. AT LEAST DEPICTED BY THE MODELS TO TAKE SHAPE. 

LATEST RUNS OF BOTH THE GFS AND ECMWF HAVE SHOWN THAT AS THE 
INITIAL WAVE APPROACHES FROM THE WEST OF MONDAY... WARMER AIR WILL 
TRY AND MOVE BACK NORTH INTO PART OF OKLAHOMA AS MORE SIGNIFICANT 
SFC CYCLOGENESIS DEVELOPS TO OUR WEST/SOUTHWEST. THIS WARMER AIR 
APPEARS THAT IT MAY LIMIT FREEZING/FROZEN PRECIP ACROSS MUCH OF THE 
AREA MONDAY NIGHT. 

MODEL TRENDS WOULD BRING DEEPER/COLDER AIR SOUTHWARD INTO AREA 
DURING THE DAY ON TUESDAY AS SFC LOW CONT TO DEEPEN TO OUR SOUTH AND 
SOUTHEAST. THIS SHOULD ALLOW A QUICKER TRANSITION FROM LIQUID TO 
FROZEN... LIMITING FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET. IN ADDITION LATEST ECMWF 
WOULD BRING AN END TO THE PRECIP RATHER QUICKLY TUE AFTN... EVEN 
LIMITING SNOW ACROSS THE AREA. HOWEVER CONFIDENCE ON ANY PARTICULAR 
SOLUTION FOR THE LATE MONDAY INTO TUESDAY TIME FRAME CONT TO BE 
RATHER LOW. HOWEVER DID ISSUE AN SPS EARLIER IN THE DAY ADDRESSING
SOME OF THE ISSUES.

AFTER PRECIP ENDS TUE EVENING... CONCERN IS THEN WITH COLD AND 
STRONG NORTH WINDS WHICH WILL CREATE VERY LOW WIND CHILLS TUE INTO 
WED. COLD AIR THEN HANGS AROUND THROUGH MUCH OF THE REMAINDER OF 
NEXT WEEK WITH ANOTHER STRONG FRONT POSSIBLY BY THE END OF THE WEEK.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORMAN OK
449 AM CST SAT JAN 29 2011

.DISCUSSION...
TEMPERATURES TODAY WILL AGAIN BE UNSEASONABLY WARM ACROSS MUCH OF
THE AREA WITH HIGHS IN MOST LOCATIONS REACHING THE 70S. FIRE
WEATHER CONCERNS WILL CONTINUE ESPECIALLY IN THE SOUTHWEST WHERE
HUMIDITIES WILL LIKELY FALL TO NEAR 10 PERCENT. AT THIS TIME IT
APPEARS THAT THE WINDS WILL REMAIN MODEST WITH SPEEDS AVERAGING
ONLY 10 TO 15 MPH WITH OCCASIONAL GUSTS TO AROUND 20 MPH.

A COLD FRONT WILL BEGIN MOVING SOUTH THROUGH THE AREA TONIGHT REACHING
SE OK BY EARLY SUNDAY MORNING. MEANWHILE... AN UPPER LEVEL STORM
SYSTEM OVER BAJA WILL TRACK ENE ACROSS TX TONIGHT AND SUNDAY. WHILE
MOST OF THE PRECIPITATION WITH THIS SYSTEM WILL BE IN EASTERN
TX... A FEW SHOWERS COULD ALSO SPREAD INTO THE SOUTHEAST PART OF
OUR CWA TONIGHT AND SUNDAY. WOULD NOT RULE OUT A CLAP OF THUNDER
OR TWO OVERNIGHT. TEMPERATURES ON SUNDAY WILL AVERAGE ABOUT 25
DEGREES COLDER THAN TODAY.

THE NEXT MAJOR UPPER STORM SYSTEM TO AFFECT US WILL BE DROPPING INTO 
THE SW US BY MONDAY MORNING. ALTHOUGH WE WILL BE IN BETWEEN UPPER 
SYSTEMS SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY... THERE STILL COULD BE SOME
SCATTERED LIGHT DRIZZLE... WITH FREEZING DRIZZLE IN NORTHERN OK...
DEVELOPING BEHIND THE FRONT. ANY ACCUMULATION SHOULD BE VERY
LIGHT. 

THE WEATHER IS EXPECTED TO DETERIORATE MONDAY NIGHT AND TUESDAY AS

.DISCUSSION...
THE INITIAL COLD FRONT IS PROGRESSING SOUTH ACROSS OUR FAR
NORTHERN COUNTIES. IT APPEARS TO BE RIGHT ON SCHEDULE... AND
SHOULD REACH OKLAHOMA CITY AROUND MIDNIGHT... THEN EXIT OUT
FORECAST AREA TOMORROW MORNING AROUND SUNRISE. PRE-FRONTAL WINDS
HAVE DROPPED OFF A LOT... AND TEMPERATURES JUST AHEAD OF THE FRONT
HAVE DROPPED DRAMATICALLY AS VERY DRY AIR... LIGHT WINDS... AND
CLEAR SKIES ALLOW FOR VERY EFFICIENT RADIATIONAL COOLING. ONCE THE
FRONT ARRIVES... MANY OF THOSE LOCATIONS WILL SEE THE TEMPERATURE
RISE SUBSTANTIALLY... BEFORE FALLING BACK AGAIN AS THE COLD-AIR
ADVECTION SETS IN.

OTHER THAN THE WIND SHIFT... AND SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN WIND
SPEEDS... FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS WILL BECOME MUCH LESS SUPPORTIVE
OF WILDFIRES OVERNIGHT.

FINALLY... A FEW THUNDERSTORMS HAVE FORMED OVER TEXAS... SOUTHWEST
OF THE METROPLEX. THERE IS A SMALL CHANCE THAT SOME OF THIS
CONVECTION WILL AFFECT PARTS OF SOUTH-CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST
OKLAHOMA OVERNIGHT. IT IS IMPROBABLE THAT THUNDERSTORMS WILL OCCUR
AS FAR NORTH AS OUR FORECAST AREA... BUT A FEW SHOWERS ARE CERTAINLY A
POSSIBILITY.

THE CURRENT FORECAST GENERALLY LOOKS GOOD... OTHER THAN BEING
UNABLE TO ACCOUNT FOR THE WILDLY VARYING TEMPERATURES OVER SHORT
DISTANCES... DUE TO TERRAIN FEATURES AND RADIATIONAL COOLING. AT
THIS TIME... NO UPDATES ARE PLANNED FOR THE OVERNIGHT FORECAST.

A COLD FRONT MOVING INTO SOUTH CENTRAL OK EARLY THIS MORNING
SHOULD MOVE SOUTH OF THE RED RIVER LATER THIS MORNING. AREAS OF
FOG WILL OCCUR AHEAD OF THE FRONT FOR A FEW HOURS THIS MORNING...
BUT SHOULD DISSIPATE SHORTLY AFTER THE PASSAGE OF THE FRONT.
MEANWHILE... AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE LOCATED OVER FAR SW TX/NRN
MEX WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK EAST ACROSS CENTRAL/SOUTHERN TX TODAY
WHILE A FEW SHOWERS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS SYSTEM COULD BRUSH FAR
SOUTHEAST OK.

WEAK LOW-LEVEL ISENTROPIC LIFTING COULD RESULT IN SOME LIGHT
DRIZZLE/FREEZING DRIZZLE ACROSS NORTHERN OK FOR A FEW HOURS MONDAY
MORNING. PRIMARY ATTENTION SHIFTS NOW TO A STRONG STORM SYSTEM
MOVING ONTO THE WEST COAST EARLY THIS MORNING. THE SYSTEM WILL
BRING INCREASING CHANCES FOR WINTRY PRECIPITATION TO THE AREA
BEGINNING MONDAY NIGHT. A 1052 MB HIGH PRESSURE CENTER IS FORECAST
TO BUILD SOUTH THROUGH THE PLAINS MONDAY AND MONDAY NIGHT...
BRINGING MUCH COLDER TEMPERATURES TO THE AREA. A WINTER STORM
WATCH HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR MUCH OF NORTHERN... CENTRAL AND PARTS OF
WESTERN OK FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF SIGNIFICANT WINTRY PRECIPITATION
AND BITTERLY COLD WIND CHILLS MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY.

WITH THE COLD AIR DEEPENING FAIRLY QUICKLY... BELIEVE PERIODS OF
FREEZING RAIN WILL BE RELATIVELY SHORT... WITH THE SOUTH CENTRAL

POTENTIALLY CRIPPLING COMBINATION OF WIND... COLD AND WINTER PRECIP NOW 
APPEARS IMMINENT FOR MUCH OF THE AREA MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY. WE 
WILL BE ISSUING A PDS VERSION OF THE WSW BY 3 PM WHICH WILL EXPAND 
THE WINTER STORM WATCH INTO THE REST OF WCENTRAL/SW OK AND OUR TX 
ZONES... UPGRADE CENTRAL AND NCENTRAL OK TO A WINTER STORM WARNING 
WHERE CONFIDENCE IS HIGHEST IN THE POTENTIAL FOR MAJOR IMPACTS... 
AND ADD A WIND CHILL WATCH FOR NW OK WHERE COMPUTED WIND CHILLS ARE 
-15 OR LESS DURING MUCH OF THE PERIOD FROM LATE MON NIGHT INTO WED 
MORNING. PARTS OF THE AREA EVENTUALLY COULD NEED AN UPGRADE TO 
BLIZZARD WARNING BY TUESDAY MORNING. 

CONDITIONS LOOK OKAY FOR THE MOST PART BETWEEN NOW AND LATE 
MONDAY... ALTHOUGH PARTS OF N AND CENTRAL OK MAY HAVE TO DEAL WITH A 
LITTLE FREEZING DRIZZLE LATER TONIGHT INTO MONDAY. WE WILL HANDLE 
THAT WITH AN ADVISORY IF NEEDED. OTHERWISE THE EMPHASIS AT THIS TIME 
IS ON GETTING EVERYONE TO TAKE PROPER STEPS NOW BY OBTAINING 
NECESSARY PROVISIONS... AND NOT PLANNING ON GOING ANYWHERE FROM LATE 
MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY UNLESS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.

ALL INDICATIONS ARE THAT CONDITIONS WILL DETERIORATE RAPIDLY AT SOME 
POINT MONDAY NIGHT AS N-NE WINDS INCREASE AND COLD AIR GETS COLDER 
AND DEEPER. PRECIP IS FORECAST TO INCREASE IN COVERAGE AND INTENSITY 
00-06Z AND ESPECIALLY 06-12Z MONDAY NIGHT. TRANSITION FROM LIQUID TO 
FREEZING TO FROZEN SHOULD BE FAIRLY RAPID GIVEN THE STRONG LOW-LEVEL 
COLD ADVECTION... ALTHOUGH SLEET MAY PERSIST INTO TUE MORNING SE 
PARTS OF AREA. LIMITED ICE ACCRETION WILL BE OFFSET BY STRONG 
WINDS... WHICH MAY BRING DOWN EVEN LIGHTLY-COATED TREES AND POWER 
LINES. FOCUS WILL BE LESS ON SNOW/ICE AMOUNTS AND MORE ON THE 
POTENTIAL FOR PARALYZING WINTER STORM CONDITIONS DUE TO SNOW AND 
BLOWING/DRIFTING ALONG WITH LIFE-THREATENING WIND CHILLS. THAT BEING 
SAID... WE CURRENTLY PAINT A BROAD BAND OF 4-8 INCHES CENTERED 
ROUGHLY LAWTON-OKC-STILLWATER WITH 2-5 OVER MUCH OF THE REST OF THE 
WATCH AREA. GIVEN THE LIKELIHOOD OF SEVERE BLOWING/DRIFTING... WE 
MAY NEVER REALLY KNOW. OBVIOUS ANALOG WOULD BE XMAS EVE 2009... AND 
FOR SOME AREAS THIS MAY BE AS BAD OR WORSE THAN THAT ONE.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION

948 PM CST SUN JAN 30 2011

.DISCUSSION...
LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE IS MAINTAINING A LARGE AREA OF CLOUD COVER OVER
OUR FORECAST AREA THIS EVENING. THE SOUTHERN EDGE OF THE CLOUDS
FORMS A ZIGZAG PATTERN ACROSS THE SOUTHERN PART OF OUR AREA. THE
WIND PATTERN OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS OR SO SUGGESTS THAT THE
SOUTHERN EDGE MAY WELL REMAIN FAIRLY RAGGED... AND THAT OUR TEXAS
AND SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA COUNTIES MAY SEE A LITTLE SUN NOW AND THEN
DURING THE DAY TOMORROW. WE WILL RAISE THE DAYTIME TEMPERATURES A
BIT FOR THE SOUTH AS A RESULT. THIS... HOWEVER... IS A LOW-
CONFIDENCE CHANGE.

SIMILARLY... PERSISTENT CLOUD COVER WILL HOLD TEMPERATURES UP
OVERNIGHT OVER MOST OF OKLAHOMA. THIS MEANS THAT WE WILL RAISE
MINIMUM TEMPERATURES SIGNIFICANTLY IN A FEW SPOTS IN NORTHERN
OKLAHOMA. THIS WILL ALSO LEAD TO NON-DIURNAL TEMPERATURE PATTERNS
TOMORROW... AS DAYTIME HIGHS IN MANY PLACES WILL BE REACHED EARLY
IN THE DAY.

RADAR IN HIGH-SENSITIVITY MODE SHOWS SOME WEAK ECHOES... ALTHOUGH
SURFACE REPORTS SHOW NOTHING HITTING THE GROUND AT THIS POINT.
GIVEN THE SATURATED LOW-LEVELS OF THE ATMOSPHERE... AND SOME WEAK
ISENTROPIC LIFT FORECAST OVERNIGHT... WE WILL RETAIN THE DRIZZLE
AND FREEZING DRIZZLE CHANCES NEAR AND EAST OF I-35.

THE BIG STORM TOMORROW NIGHT AND TUESDAY STILL LOOKS LIKE IT WILL
BE MAINLY SNOW... EXCEPT OVER SOUTH-CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST
OKLAHOMA... WHERE A LONGER PERIOD OF FREEZING DRIZZLE/RAIN OR
SLEET APPEARS MORE LIKELY. MODEL DATA ARE STILL COMING IN... SO WE
WILL NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES TO LATER PERIODS AT THIS POINT.

00-06Z AND ESPECIALLY 06-12Z MONDAY NIGHT. TRANSITION FROM LIQUID TO 
FREEZING TO FROZEN SHOULD BE FAIRLY RAPID GIVEN THE STRONG LOW-LEVEL 
COLD ADVECTION... ALTHOUGH SLEET MAY PERSIST INTO TUE MORNING SE 
PARTS OF AREA. LIMITED ICE ACCRETION WILL BE OFFSET BY STRONG 
WINDS... WHICH MAY BRING DOWN EVEN LIGHTLY-COATED TREES AND POWER 
LINES. FOCUS WILL BE LESS ON SNOW/ICE AMOUNTS AND MORE ON THE 
POTENTIAL FOR PARALYZING WINTER STORM CONDITIONS DUE TO SNOW AND 
BLOWING/DRIFTING ALONG WITH LIFE-THREATENING WIND CHILLS. THAT BEING 
SAID... WE CURRENTLY PAINT A BROAD BAND OF 4-8 INCHES CENTERED 
ROUGHLY LAWTON-OKC-STILLWATER WITH 2-5 OVER MUCH OF THE REST OF THE 
WATCH AREA. GIVEN THE LIKELIHOOD OF SEVERE BLOWING/DRIFTING... WE 
MAY NEVER REALLY KNOW. OBVIOUS ANALOG WOULD BE XMAS EVE 2009... AND 
FOR SOME AREAS THIS MAY BE AS BAD OR WORSE THAN THAT ONE. 

SNOW TAPERS OFF LATE TUE BUT WIND AND BLOWING/DRIFTING TO CONTINUE 
AS TEMPS AND WIND CHILLS DROP FURTHER. WIND CHILL ADVISORIES 
CERTAINLY WILL BE NEEDED ON THE BACK SIDE OF THIS EVENT... OR WIND 
CHILL WARNINGS EXPANDED. THIS MAY BE THE COLDEST THAT MANY AREAS
HAVE EXPERIENCED IN YEARS.

STANDARD INITIALIZATION ROUTINE INVOKED FOR THE REST OF THE
FORECAST. MAY HAVE TO ADD SOME LOW POPS EVENTUALLY FOR ANOTHER
EVENT TOWARD THE END OF THE WORK WEEK BUT FOCUS IS SQUARELY ON THE
EARLY-WEEK EVENT.

.DISCUSSION...
MAIN FOCUS CONTINUES TO BE ON DEVELOPING WINTER STORM THAT WILL
AFFECT THE AREA TONIGHT AND TUESDAY. UNTIL THEN... MOSTLY CLOUDY
AND COOL CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL TODAY WITH SOME PATCHES OF VERY LIGHT
DRIZZLE/FREEZING DRIZZLE POSSIBLE ACROSS NORTHERN OKLAHOMA. BY
TONIGHT... AN UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE FROM THE SW US
AND INTO THE SOUTHERN PLAINS. AT THE SAME TIME... A STRONG HIGH
PRESSURE RIDGE WILL BUILD SOUTHWARD THROUGH THE PLAINS BRINGING
MUCH COLDER TEMPERATURES TO THE REGION. THE PAST FEW MODEL RUNS
CONTINUE TO SHOW PRETTY GOOD CONSISTENCY REGARDING THE LOCATION
AND AMOUNTS OF THE HEAVIER SNOWFALL. WE ARE STILL LOOKING FOR THE
HIGHEST AMOUNTS TO BE ACROSS CENTRAL AND NORTH CENTRAL OK WHERE
4-8 INCHES ARE EXPECTED... WITH ISOLATED HIGHER TOTALS POSSIBLE.
HOWEVER... WHILE WE HAVE NOTED THAT THE LATEST 06Z NAM DEVELOPS A
RATHER SHARP SNOWFALL GRADIENT GENERALLY NW OF I-44 IN CENTRAL
OK... WE WILL SEE IF THAT TREND PERSISTS IN OTHER MODELS AND LATER
RUNS.

WE EXPECT FREEZING/FROZEN PRECIPITATION TO DEVELOP THIS EVENING
AND INCREASE THROUGH THE NIGHT. AS THE COLD AIR DEEPENS... THE
MIXED PRECIPITATION WILL CHANGE OVER TO SNOW FROM NW TO SE TONIGHT
AND INTO EARLY TUESDAY. THE SOUTHEAST COULD SEE THE MOST ICE WITH
SOME FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET. THAT AREA WILL SHOULD ALSO HAVE THE
HIGHEST QPF AMOUNTS... BUT TIMING OF THE PHASE-CHANGES WILL BE
SOMEWHAT PROBLEMATIC. MEANWHILE... THE PRESENCE OF MID-LEVEL
CONVECTIVE INSTABILITY SUGGESTS THAT A FEW T-STORMS WILL ALSO BE
POSSIBLE OVER THE SOUTHERN HALF OF OK AND N-TX TONIGHT.

THE PRECIPITATION SHOULD DECREASE IN INTENSITY BY MIDDAY
TUESDAY... ALTHOUGH LIGHT SNOW COULD PERSIST THROUGH EARLY
EVENING. THE OTHER SIGNIFICANT ISSUE WILL BE THE STRONG WINDS AND
VERY COLD TEMPERATURES POURING INTO THE REGION TONIGHT AND
TUESDAY. NOT ONLY COULD THE WINTRY PRECIPITATION MAKE TRAVEL
HAZARDOUS... BUT DANGEROUS WIND CHILLS WILL ALSO BE A HAZARD FOR
ANYONE CAUGHT OUT IN THE WEATHER.

ONCE THE THE VERY COLD TEMPERATURES MOVE IN... WITH LOWS IN THE
SINGLE DIGITS AND EVEN FALLING BELOW ZERO IN PARTS OF NORTHERN
OK... MOST LOCATIONS WILL LIKELY NOT GET ABOVE FREEZING UNTIL
FRIDAY.

...BLIZZARD AND OTHER DANGEROUS WINTER WEATHER TUESDAY...

AN UPPER TROUGH WILL SWING INTO A NEGATIVELY TILTED CONFIGURATION AS 
IT IS KICKED OUT OF THE DESERT SOUTHWEST TOWARD CENTRAL OKLAHOMA 
TUESDAY MORNING. THE TROUGH WILL ENCOUNTER A TIGHTENING FRONTAL ZONE 
SEPARATING HUMID MARITIME POLAR AIR FROM MID WINTER ARCTIC. DEEP 
CYCLOGENESIS WILL OCCUR OVER OKLAHOMA AND NORTH TEXAS. LIFTING IS 
TYPICALLY MOST INTENSE DURING THIS TYPE OF DEEPENING...MEANING 
WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION...RELATIVELY HEAVY FOR MID WINTER.

DURING THE EVENING...MOST SHOWERS CONFINED TO THE RED RIVER AREA. 
PRECIP WILL INCREASE AFTER MIDNIGHT...AND AS THE CYCLONE DEVELOPS 
THERE WILL BE A TRANSITION OF PRECIP TYPE. A WARM NOSE IN THE 
SOUNDINGS...LEFT OVER FROM OUR ANOMALOUSLY WARM WEEKEND...WILL LEAD 
TO A PERIOD OF RAIN...FREEZING RAIN...AND SLEET FROM CENTRAL 
OKLAHOMA SOUTHWESTWARD. THIS CREATES SOME CONFUSION... AS THE NAM 
SNOW ALGORITHM KICKS OUT HEAVY SNOW IN A BAND ACROSS NORTH TEXAS AND 
SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA TONIGHT. GIVEN A STRONG 3-5 DEGREE CELSIUS WARM 
NOSE...ATOP INCREASING SURFACE COLD ADVECTION...THIS BAND WILL 
LIKELY CONSIST OF FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET. THUNDER IS ALSO LIKELY 
FROM CENTRAL OKLAHOMA SOUTHWESTWARD. WE INCREASED ICE ACCUMULATION 
UP TO ONE QUARTER INCH...AND THIS IS ONE REASON OUR SNOW TOTALS 
DECREASE TOWARD THE SOUTH...ESPECIALLY SINCE THE STRONG LIFT WILL 
SHIFT UP INTO CENTRAL AND NORTHERN OKLAHOMA BY THE TIME TEMPERATURES 
ARE SUPPORTIVE OF ALL SNOW. AN EARLIER CHANGEOVER...THOUGH...WOULD 
MEAN MORE SNOW...POSSIBLY HEAVY...INTO SOUTH CENTRAL AND EAST 
CENTRAL OKLAHOMA. LATER SHIFTS WILL NEED TO WATCH THIS CLOSELY.

BY MORNING...THE MID LEVEL TROUGH WILL CLOSE OFF...AND MODELS ARE 
FAIRLY CONSISTENT IN PLACEMENT OF THE 700 MB LOW NEAR OR JUST EAST 
OF OKLAHOMA CITY BY 9 AM TO NOON. FORECAST SOUNDINGS SHOW STEEP 
UPPER LEVEL LAPSE RATES AND STRONG...DEEP ASCENT...CAPABLE OF 
PRODUCING HEAVY SNOW AND EVEN ISOLATED THUNDER. THIS IS REFLECTED IN 
THE SNOW GRIDS FROM THE NAM AND SREF...WHICH PRODUCE IMPRESSIVE SNOW 
RATES...MORE THAN ONE INCH PER HOUR...DURING THE MORNING. ALSO ON 
TUESDAY...THE GRADIENT BETWEEN A 1052 MB ARCTIC HIGH AND ROUGHLY 995 
MB LOW WILL DRIVE A DANGEROUS NORTHWESTERLY WIND DURING AND 
FOLLOWING THE STORM. THE MOS CAME UP CLOSER TO WHAT WE WOULD EXPECT 
WITH THIS GRADIENT...FORECASTING 35 MPH SUSTAINED WINDS. GUSTS OVER 
45 MPH SHOULD BE COMMON. FOR THIS REASON...WE UPGRADED TO BLIZZARD 
WARNING IN THE AREA WHERE HEAVY SNOW RATES ARE MOST CERTAIN. NEAR 
BLIZZARD CONDITIONS ARE LIKELY TO EXIST ELSEWHERE AS WELL...AND IT 
WILL GENERALLY BE AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS DAY TO BE TRAVELING. EVEN 
PEDESTRIANS IN FAMILIAR AREAS MAY BECOME DISORIENTED. WIND CHILL 
TEMPERATURES WILL BE COLDER THAN MANY OKLAHOMANS AND TEXANS HAVE

.AVIATION...
CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE TO DETERIORATE RAPIDLY OVERNIGHT AS A
WINTER STORM SYSTEM MOVES INTO TEXAS AND OKLAHOMA. MAXIMUM LIFT
LOOKS LIKE IT WILL OCCUR BETWEEN 06Z AND 12Z AT MOST SITES...
WHICH SHOULD CORRESPOND TO THE HEAVIEST SNOWFALL. STRONG NORTH
WINDS WILL CAUSE EXTREMELY LOW VISIBILITIES AND CEILINGS IN
BLOWING SNOW. THE SNOW SHOULD TAPER OFF TOWARD 1800Z TOMORROW...
BUT WINDS WILL CONTINUE... AND CONDITIONS WILL BE MVFR AT THE VERY
BEST DURING THE AFTERNOON. WINDS SHOULD SUBSIDE SOMEWHAT AFTER
0000Z TOMORROW EVENING... REDUCING THE BLOWING SNOW... AND
RESULTING IN... WE HOPE... VFR OR HIGH-END MVFR CONDITIONS AT
MOST SITES. IT APPEARS THE KOKC AND KOUN WILL TAKE THE BRUNT OF
THE SNOWFALL... AND THEREFORE THE BLSN. WE HAVE INCLUDED A ZERO
VSBY AT KOUN DURING THE EXPECTED HEIGHT OF THE STORM... AS
SNOWFALL RATES ARE EXPECTED TO BE EXTREMELY HIGH FOR A COUPLE OF
HOURS.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 533 PM CST MON JAN 31 2011/ 

AVIATION...
A NARROW BAND OF VFR CONDITIONS AFFECTING KLAW AND KSPS WILL FILL
IN THIS EVENING. ALSO... A SMALL AREA OF CONVECTION IS LIKELY TO
REACH KSPS BEFORE WEAKENING. TEMPERATURE PROFILES SUGGEST SOME PL
WILL MIX WITH RAIN IN THE STORMS. CONDITIONS WILL DETERIORATE
RAPIDLY OVERNIGHT... FROM WEST TO EAST... MOSTLY AFTER 04Z THIS
EVENING. EXPECT EXTREMELY POOR CONDITIONS IN SN/BLSN AT KOKC...
KOUN... AND KPNC TOMORROW MORNING... AND POOR CONDITIONS
ELSEWHERE. ALTHOUGH THE SNOWFALL SHOULD TAPER OFF SIGNIFICANTLY IN
THE AFTERNOON... STRONG WINDS WILL CONTINUE... AND BLSN IS
EXPECTED TO DIMINISH SLOWLY WITH TIME.

PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 346 PM CST MON JAN 31 2011/ 

DISCUSSION...
.BLIZZARD AND OTHER DANGEROUS WINTER WEATHER TUESDAY...

AN UPPER TROUGH WILL SWING INTO A NEGATIVELY TILTED CONFIGURATION AS 
IT IS KICKED OUT OF THE DESERT SOUTHWEST TOWARD CENTRAL OKLAHOMA 
TUESDAY MORNING. THE TROUGH WILL ENCOUNTER A TIGHTENING FRONTAL ZONE 
SEPARATING HUMID MARITIME POLAR AIR FROM MID WINTER ARCTIC. DEEP 
CYCLOGENESIS WILL OCCUR OVER OKLAHOMA AND NORTH TEXAS. LIFTING IS 
TYPICALLY MOST INTENSE DURING THIS TYPE OF DEEPENING...MEANING 
WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION...RELATIVELY HEAVY FOR MID WINTER.

DURING THE EVENING...MOST SHOWERS CONFINED TO THE RED RIVER AREA. 
PRECIP WILL INCREASE AFTER MIDNIGHT...AND AS THE CYCLONE DEVELOPS 
THERE WILL BE A TRANSITION OF PRECIP TYPE. A WARM NOSE IN THE 
SOUNDINGS...LEFT OVER FROM OUR ANOMALOUSLY WARM WEEKEND...WILL LEAD 
TO A PERIOD OF RAIN...FREEZING RAIN...AND SLEET FROM CENTRAL 
OKLAHOMA SOUTHWESTWARD. THIS CREATES SOME CONFUSION... AS THE NAM 
SNOW ALGORITHM KICKS OUT HEAVY SNOW IN A BAND ACROSS NORTH TEXAS AND 
SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA TONIGHT. GIVEN A STRONG 3-5 DEGREE CELSIUS WARM 
NOSE...ATOP INCREASING SURFACE COLD ADVECTION...THIS BAND WILL 
LIKELY CONSIST OF FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET. THUNDER IS ALSO LIKELY 
FROM CENTRAL OKLAHOMA SOUTHWESTWARD. WE INCREASED ICE ACCUMULATION 
UP TO ONE QUARTER INCH...AND THIS IS ONE REASON OUR SNOW TOTALS 
DECREASE TOWARD THE SOUTH...ESPECIALLY SINCE THE STRONG LIFT WILL 
SHIFT UP INTO CENTRAL AND NORTHERN OKLAHOMA BY THE TIME TEMPERATURES 
ARE SUPPORTIVE OF ALL SNOW. AN EARLIER CHANGEOVER...THOUGH...WOULD 
MEAN MORE SNOW...POSSIBLY HEAVY...INTO SOUTH CENTRAL AND EAST 
CENTRAL OKLAHOMA. LATER SHIFTS WILL NEED TO WATCH THIS CLOSELY.

BY MORNING...THE MID LEVEL TROUGH WILL CLOSE OFF...AND MODELS ARE 
FAIRLY CONSISTENT IN PLACEMENT OF THE 700 MB LOW NEAR OR JUST EAST 
OF OKLAHOMA CITY BY 9 AM TO NOON. FORECAST SOUNDINGS SHOW STEEP 
UPPER LEVEL LAPSE RATES AND STRONG...DEEP ASCENT...CAPABLE OF 
PRODUCING HEAVY SNOW AND EVEN ISOLATED THUNDER. THIS IS REFLECTED IN 
THE SNOW GRIDS FROM THE NAM AND SREF...WHICH PRODUCE IMPRESSIVE SNOW 
RATES...MORE THAN ONE INCH PER HOUR...DURING THE MORNING. ALSO ON 
TUESDAY...THE GRADIENT BETWEEN A 1052 MB ARCTIC HIGH AND ROUGHLY 995 
MB LOW WILL DRIVE A DANGEROUS NORTHWESTERLY WIND DURING AND 
FOLLOWING THE STORM. THE MOS CAME UP CLOSER TO WHAT WE WOULD EXPECT 
WITH THIS GRADIENT...FORECASTING 35 MPH SUSTAINED WINDS. GUSTS OVER 
45 MPH SHOULD BE COMMON. FOR THIS REASON...WE UPGRADED TO BLIZZARD 
WARNING IN THE AREA WHERE HEAVY SNOW RATES ARE MOST CERTAIN. NEAR 
BLIZZARD CONDITIONS ARE LIKELY TO EXIST ELSEWHERE AS WELL...AND IT 
WILL GENERALLY BE AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS DAY TO BE TRAVELING. EVEN 
PEDESTRIANS IN FAMILIAR AREAS MAY BECOME DISORIENTED. WIND CHILL 
TEMPERATURES WILL BE COLDER THAN MANY OKLAHOMANS AND TEXANS HAVE 
EXPERIENCED IN MORE THAN TEN YEARS.

BECAUSE A WIND CHILL WATCH HAD BEEN IN EFFECT IN THE NORTHWEST...WE 
UPGRADED TO WARNING THERE THROUGH WEDNESDAY MORNING. OTHER AREAS 
WILL NEED A WIND CHILL ADVISORY BY TUESDAY EVENING...BUT FOR NOW WE 
HAVE WRAPPED THE WIND CHILL MESSAGE INTO THE BLIZZARD AND WINTER 
STORM WARNING PRODUCTS.

SNOW IS THE DOMINANT PRECIP TYPE EARLY THIS MORNING WITH
SLEET AND SOME FREEZING RAIN LIMITED TO SOUTHEAST 1/4 OF 
FA. ATOKA AND DURANT ARE JUST BELOW FREEZING SO SOME ICE
ACCUMULATION LIKELY BEFORE PRECIP CHANGES TO SLEET AND 
SNOW. IMPRESSIVE SNOWFALL RATES HAVE BEEN RECEIVED WITHIN THE
PAST HOUR (2 TO 3 INCHES) WHICH COINCIDES WITH SEVERAL LIGHTNING
STRIKES POTTAWATOMIE COUNTY/GRADY. WHITEOUT CONDITIONS WILL OCCUR
WITHIN ENHANCED AREAS OF PRECIPITATION MAKING TRAVEL VERY
TREACHEROUS AT TIMES. INCREASED SNOWFALL AMOUNTS FARTHER SOUTH
INTO PARTS OF NORTH TEXAS SOUTH CENTRAL OKLAHOMA... BUT THIS AREA
SHOULD SEE PRECIP END FIRST AS TROUGH LIFTS NORTHEAST BY18-20Z.


SUSTAINED WINDS HAVE BEEN IN THE 25 TO 30 RANGE...ESPECIALLY
ACROSS NORTHERN OKLAHOMA BUT A GENERALLY INCREASE WILL LIKELY
OCCUR DURING THE MORNING AS THE SURFACE LOW DEEPENS AS IT MOVES
NORTHEAST INTO ARKATEX REGION.  FREQUENT GUSTS TO 40 HAVE ALSO
BEEN SEEN ACROSS WESTERN PARTS OF THE STATE.

AS SYSTEM MOVES EAST OF THE AREA LATE TODAY...CONSIDERABLE BLOWING
AND DRIFTING OF SNOW WILL OCCUR AS WINDS WILL REMAIN STRONG.
AS WINTER STORM/BLIZZARD WARNINGS ARE CANCELLED/EXPIRE WILL LIKELY
NEED TO PLACE MANY AREAS IN A WIND CHILL ADVISORY TONIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY. 

COLD WILL BE THE STORY THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK AS THE COLD SURFACE
HIGH SETTLES OVER THE SOUTHERN PLAINS BY THURSDAY MORNING.  WITH
SUBSTANTIAL SNOW COVER MANY AREAS WILL SEE SUB-ZERO TEMPS...ESPECIALLY
ACROSS NORTHERN HALF OF FA.


SECOND TROUGH WILL MOVE ACROSS THE AREA FRIDAY INTO FRIDAY NIGHT
BUT PRECIP CHANCES WILL BE MINIMAL WITH THIS FEATURE.  TEMPERATURES
WILL WARM GOING INTO THE WEEKEND WITH SOUTHERLY WINDS BUT ANOTHER
BLAST OF COLD AIR SEEMS POSSIBLE SUNDAY INTO SUNDAY NIGHT.

.DISCUSSION...WE HAVE SEEN THE BENEFITS OF EARLY WARNING TODAY... AS 
MOST PEOPLE APPEAR TO HAVE STAYED HOME DURING AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS 
COMBINATION OF COLD AND SNOW. THE WORST OF THE SNOWFALL HAD ENDED AS 
OF MID AFTERNOON...WITH ONLY LIGHT SNOW REMAINING AND DWINDLING OVER 
NORTHERN OKLAHOMA. IT IS IMPORTANT TO EMPHASIZE...HOWEVER...THAT 
DANGEROUS OUTDOOR CONDITIONS ARE HERE TO STAY FOR AN EXTENDED TIME.

THE OKLAHOMA CLIMATOLOGICAL SURVEY TELLS US THAT EARLY THIS MORNING 
THE OKLAHOMA MESONET AT BOISE CITY SET A RECORD FOR THAT OBSERVING 
NETWORK...WITH A WIND CHILL TEMPERATURE OF 36 BELOW ZERO. EVEN THIS 
AFTERNOON...WIND CHILLS ARE COMMONLY AROUND 10 BELOW FROM CENTRAL 
OKLAHOMA NORTH AND WESTWARD. ALTHOUGH THE EXCESSIVE WIND SPEEDS AND 
GUSTS WILL DIMINISH WHEN LOW PRESSURE PULLS AWAY TO OUR EAST THIS 
EVENING...BRISK WINDS OF 15 TO 25 MPH WILL CONTINUE FOR AN EXTENDED 
TIME...AS A LARGE ARCTIC HIGH BUILDS DOWN FROM THE NORTHERN PLAINS. 
THIS IS AN EXCEPTIONAL ARCTIC OUTBREAK FOR OUR AREA...AND THE 
EXTREME COLD WILL PERSIST THROUGH THURSDAY. WE HAVE REPLACED THE 
WINTER STORM AND BLIZZARD WARNINGS WITH WIND CHILL ADVISORIES AND 
WARNINGS THAT GO THROUGH THURSDAY MORNING. 

WITH THE BRISK WINDS...ADVECTION AND MIXING WILL BE THE DOMINANT 
INFLUENCE ON LOW TEMPERATURES TONIGHT. MANY LOCATIONS WILL SEE AIR 
TEMPERATURE DROP JUST BELOW ZERO FAHRENHEIT. IT WILL BE EVEN COLDER 
WEDNESDAY NIGHT WHEN THE CENTER OF HIGH PRESSURE ARRIVES OVER THE 
FRESH SNOW FIELD. SOME WEAK WARM ADVECTION AT 700 MB WILL PROVIDE A 
LITTLE CLOUD COVER AND PERHAPS SNOW FLURRIES IN NORTH TEXAS AND 
SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT...BUT AREAS FARTHER 
NORTH SHOULD BE RELATIVELY CLEAR...WITH AMPLE OPPORTUNITY TO RADIATE 
AT NIGHT...RESULTING IN LOWS APPROACHING 10 BELOW. WINDS WILL BE 
LIGHTER BY THAT TIME.

DOWNSLOPE WARMING WILL TAKE PLACE THURSDAY-FRIDAY...AND ESPECIALLY 
SATURDAY WHEN A WARM FRONT LIFTS THROUGH FROM THE WEST. WE MODIFIED 
THE GUIDANCE TEMPS BASED ON THE EXISTING SNOW COVER. ONCE WE THAW 
OUT FROM THIS CURRENT STORM...ANOTHER ARCTIC FRONT WILL START TO 
DOMINATE HEADLINES. THERE IS GOOD MODEL AGREEMENT...WITH AN ARCTIC 
HIGH AND LOW WIND CHILL TEMPERATURES BUILDING IN SUNDAY NIGHT AND 
MONDAY. THIS SYSTEM WILL NOT BE A MAJOR STORM...BUT THERE APPEARS TO 
BE ENOUGH UPPER SUPPORT IN NORTHWEST FLOW...TO RESULT IN A FRONTAL 
BAND OF PRECIPITATION CHANGING OVER TO SNOW SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY.

THE OKLAHOMA CLIMATOLOGICAL SURVEY TELLS US THAT EARLY THIS MORNING

NETWORK...WITH A WIND CHILL TEMPERATURE OF 36 BELOW ZERO. EVEN THIS 
AFTERNOON...WIND CHILLS ARE COMMONLY AROUND 10 BELOW FROM CENTRAL

THIS IS AN EXCEPTIONAL ARCTIC OUTBREAK FOR OUR AREA...AND THE 
EXTREME COLD WILL PERSIST THROUGH THURSDAY. WE HAVE REPLACED THE 
WINTER STORM AND BLIZZARD WARNINGS WITH WIND CHILL ADVISORIES AND 
WARNINGS THAT GO THROUGH THURSDAY MORNING. 

WITH THE BRISK WINDS...ADVECTION AND MIXING WILL BE THE DOMINANT 
INFLUENCE ON LOW TEMPERATURES TONIGHT. MANY LOCATIONS WILL SEE AIR 
TEMPERATURE DROP JUST BELOW ZERO FAHRENHEIT. IT WILL BE EVEN COLDER 
WEDNESDAY NIGHT WHEN THE CENTER OF HIGH PRESSURE ARRIVES OVER THE 
FRESH SNOW FIELD. SOME WEAK WARM ADVECTION AT 700 MB WILL PROVIDE A 
LITTLE CLOUD COVER AND PERHAPS SNOW FLURRIES IN NORTH TEXAS AND 
SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT...BUT AREAS FARTHER 
NORTH SHOULD BE RELATIVELY CLEAR...WITH AMPLE OPPORTUNITY TO RADIATE 
AT NIGHT...RESULTING IN LOWS APPROACHING 10 BELOW. WINDS WILL BE 
LIGHTER BY THAT TIME.

DOWNSLOPE WARMING WILL TAKE PLACE THURSDAY-FRIDAY...AND ESPECIALLY 
SATURDAY WHEN A WARM FRONT LIFTS THROUGH FROM THE WEST. WE MODIFIED 
THE GUIDANCE TEMPS BASED ON THE EXISTING SNOW COVER. ONCE WE THAW 
OUT FROM THIS CURRENT STORM...ANOTHER ARCTIC FRONT WILL START TO

HIGH AND LOW WIND CHILL TEMPERATURES BUILDING IN SUNDAY NIGHT AND 
MONDAY. THIS SYSTEM WILL NOT BE A MAJOR STORM...BUT THERE APPEARS TO

.DISCUSSION...
AN AREA OF CLOUDS AND LIGHT SNOW OVER WESTERN TEXAS MAY MOVE INTO
OUR FORECAST AREA OVERNIGHT... SUPPORTING THE MENTION OF FLURRIES
IN OUR CURRENT FORECAST. WIND CHILLS WILL REMAIN NEARLY STEADY FOR
THE REST OF THE NIGHT... AS TEMPERATURES FALL SLOWLY AND WIND
SPEEDS ALSO DROP OFF EVER SO SLOWLY.

NO CHANGES ARE PLANNED FOR THE OVERNIGHT FORECAST AT THIS TIME.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 538 PM CST TUE FEB 1 2011/ 

AVIATION...
THE STRONG SURFACE LOW CENTERED OVER WESTERN KENTUCKY WILL
CONTINUE TO PRODUCE MODERATE NORTH WINDS THROUGH THE FORECAST
PERIOD. ONLY SLIGHT DECREASES IN WIND SPEED ARE EXPECTED... BUT
EVEN THIS AMOUNT SHOULD GREATLY DIMINISH THE BLOWING SNOW.
VISIBILITIES SHOULD IMPROVE OVERNIGHT AT SITES THAT STILL HAVE
BLSN. CLOUD FORECASTS ARE HIGHLY UNCERTAIN... DUE TO THE IRREGULAR
DISTRIBUTION OF LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE... AS SHOWN ON SATELLITE
IMAGERY AND SURFACE OBSERVATIONS. A LITTLE REMAINING -SN OVER

WINTER WEATHER AND ITS IMPACTS.  STRONG NORTHERLY WINDS ARE ALSO 
LIKELY WITH THIS SYSTEM.  THIS WILL PRODUCE VERY LOW WIND CHILL

...BIG CHANGES ON THE WAY FOR PARTS OF OKLAHOMA AND NORTH TEXAS...

WINTER WEATHER WILL AFFECT OKLAHOMA AND NORTH TEXAS EARLY NEXT WEEK. 
MUCH COLDER TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED AS WELL AS THE CHANCE OF 
WINTER PRECIPITATION... ALTHOUGH THE TYPE AND AMOUNT OF WINTER 
PRECIPTIATION IS STILL UNCERTAIN.

A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE INTO THE AREA LATE SATURDAY INTO SUNDAY. THIS 
WILL LEAD TO COOLER CONDITIONS SUNDAY WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES CLOSER 
TO NORMAL. MEANWHILE... A DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE EAST ACROSS TEXAS 
BRINGING A CHANCE OF LIGHT RAIN TO PARTS OF SOUTHERN AND CENTRAL 
OKLAHOMA AND NORTH TEXAS SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY. 

EVEN COOLER TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED MONDAY AS COOL AIR CONTINUES 
TO MOVE INTO THE REGION. LOW PRECIPITATION CHANCES WILL EXPAND NORTH 
AND WEST SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY. MOST OF THE PRECIPITATION WILL 
FALL IN THE FORM OF LIGHT RAIN OR DRIZZLE. HOWEVER... LIGHT WINTER 
PRECIPITATION WILL BEGIN TO BE POSSIBLE ACROSS PARTS OF NORTHERN AND 
MAYBE INTO CENTRAL OKLAHOMA.

THE BIGGEST CHANGES WILL OCCUR MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY. A MUCH 
COLDER ARCTIC AIRMASS WILL MOVE INTO THE REGION TUESDAY... WITH 
PRECIPITATION CHANCES INCREASING MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY AS AN 
UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM MOVES ACROSS THE REGION. THIS WILL LEAD TO 
A CHANCE OF WINTER PRECIPITATION ACROSS PARTS OF OKLAHOMA AND 
WESTERN NORTH TEXAS. THE PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO END FROM WEST 
TO EAST TUESDAY NIGHT. BRISK NORTH WINDS WILL ALSO ACCOMPANY THE 
COLDER AIR LEADING TO EVEN COLDER WIND CHILLS... WITH BELOW ZERO 
WIND CHILLS POSSIBLE TUESDAY NIGHT ACROSS A LARGE PORTION OF 
OKLAHOMA AND PARTS OF WESTERN NORTH TEXAS.

AS FOR THE PRECIPITATION MONDAY NIGHT AND TUESDAY... THERE CONTINUES 
TO BE UNCERTAINTIES AT ANY GIVEN LOCATION AS TO THE PRECIPITATION 
TYPE... TIMING OF WHEN THE WINTER PRECIPITATION WILL BEGIN... AND 
HOW MUCH WINTER PRECIPITATION WILL OCCUR. SOME LOCATIONS ACROSS 
PARTS OF OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN NORTH TEXAS MAY RECEIVE ONE TO ALL OF 
THE TYPES OF RAIN... FREEZING RAIN... SLEET... AND SNOW. RESIDENTS 
SHOULD CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS FOR UPDATES AS NEW 
DATA IS RECEIVED.

IN THE MEAN TIME... PLEASANT WEATHER WILL OCCUR ACROSS THE REGION 
TODAY AND SATURDAY WITH TEMPERATURES WELL ABOVE SEASONAL NORMALS. 
THESE WARM TEMPERATURES AND THE DRY CONDITIONS WILL ELEVATE THE 
WILDFIRE POTENTIAL TODAY AND SATURDAY. THE WORST FIRE WEATHER 
CONDITIONS COULD BE SATURDAY AFTERNOON WHEN THERE IS THE POTENTIAL 
FOR STRONGER WINDS.

EVEN COOLER TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED MONDAY AS COOL AIR CONTINUES

FALL IN THE FORM OF LIGHT RAIN OR DRIZZLE. HOWEVER... LIGHT WINTER 
PRECIPITATION WILL BECOME POSSIBLE ACROSS PARTS OF NORTHERN AND 
MAYBE INTO CENTRAL OKLAHOMA.

THE BIGGEST CHANGES WILL OCCUR MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY. A MUCH 
COLDER ARCTIC AIRMASS WILL MOVE INTO THE REGION TUESDAY... WITH 
PRECIPITATION CHANCES INCREASING MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY AS AN 
UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM MOVES ACROSS THE REGION. THIS WILL LEAD TO 
A CHANCE OF WINTER PRECIPITATION ACROSS PARTS OF OKLAHOMA AND 
WESTERN NORTH TEXAS. THE PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO END FROM WEST 
TO EAST TUESDAY NIGHT. BRISK NORTH WINDS WILL ALSO ACCOMPANY THE 
COLDER AIR LEADING TO EVEN COLDER WIND CHILLS... WITH BELOW ZERO 
WIND CHILLS POSSIBLE TUESDAY NIGHT ACROSS A LARGE PORTION OF 
OKLAHOMA AND PARTS OF WESTERN NORTH TEXAS.

AS FOR THE PRECIPITATION MONDAY NIGHT AND TUESDAY... THERE CONTINUES 
TO BE UNCERTAINTIES AT ANY GIVEN LOCATION AS TO THE PRECIPITATION 
TYPE... TIMING OF WHEN THE WINTER PRECIPITATION WILL BEGIN... AND

PARTS OF OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN NORTH TEXAS MAY RECEIVE RAIN... 
FREEZING RAIN... SLEET...OR SNOW...OR A COMBINATION OF THESE. 
RESIDENTS SHOULD CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS FOR 
UPDATES AS NEW DATA IS RECEIVED.

IN THE MEAN TIME... PLEASANT WEATHER WILL OCCUR ACROSS THE REGION 
THROUGH SATURDAY WITH TEMPERATURES WELL ABOVE SEASONAL NORMALS. 
THESE WARM TEMPERATURES AND THE DRY CONDITIONS WILL ELEVATE THE 
WILDFIRE POTENTIAL ON SATURDAY WHEN THERE IS THE POTENTIAL FOR 
STRONGER WINDS.
