Stormy Weather in the Northwest; Fire Weather Threat Redeveloping in Southern California this Weekend

An active fall storm pattern in the Pacific Northwest is bringing heavy rain and high elevation snow to the region which will persist through this weekend. Strong winds associated with this system will bring a renewed period of critical fire weather to southern California later this weekend into next week. Read More >

Synopsis

 

A subtle mid level impulse moved across Texas and Oklahoma overnight Wednesday (2/5/14) night into the daylight hours on Thursday (2/6/14). Despite meager amounts of moisture, the presence of very cold temperatures within an equally dry airmass allowed for snow-to-liquid ratios on the order of 30 to 1. This meant that it would have taken 30 inches of snow to equal one inch of liquid water. So, even though the duration of the event was fairly short, the very dry snow crystals added up quite quickly and several areas saw between 1 and 3 inches of fresh snow by Thursday morning. Snow ended by 12 PM CST on 2/06/2014 as the upper level feature moved to the east.
