Wild Weather

A major storm system is causing some real crazy weather. Parts of Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Missouri are currently under both Winter Storm Warnings AND a Tornado Watch. Around noon today, it was in the low 70's in Muskogee, Oklahoma. 140 Miles to the west in Oklahoma City, it was in the low 40's. This kind of crazy weather is headed our way for Friday.

As of right now, it appears that the low pressure area will either stay to our west or move right over us. Either way, this does not look to be a major snow event for us. Places like Chicago, into Michigan and Ontario could get pounded though. Because the low will stay to our west, we will be in the warm sector. As illustrated in the Oklahoma example, this is quite a drastic difference. While we won't be in the 70's, we could come close on Thursday. Friday will stay in the 50's, but that will be enough to get some thunderstorms going. Because this is such a powerful storm system, high winds in the storms are likely. We have already been placed in the "slight" category for severe storms Friday by the Storm Prediction Center.

There is still a good deal of uncertainty with this storm, so make sure to check for updates both here on this blog, and on the homepage at
