Thanks Dan!! What a relief. You know how I hate that cold and snow.

Today is actually a very nice day here. Our winds are less then 10 mph (for a change) and it will probably hit 60 degrees. We haven't had a snowflake yet this year. I could actually get to tolerate it if winters were always like this.

I have a hard time trying to make heads or tails of those maps...I do wonder though about the wintry precip that could happen as far south as North Texas/Oklahoma as was mentioned in the first post...that's down into my neck of the woods...could our first sleet/ice storm be on the way???

I keep looking at weather forecasts and none of them talk about this. In fact, it's supposed to heat up here in North Texas this weekend through early next week. I'll bet anything it's about 70 degrees for a high here in north texas for Thanksgiving. I want some real Fall weather. I admit, 70 degrees and sunshine feel nice but it really makes me wonder what the summer's going to be like next year if the whole winter is 70 degrees with lows of 55 at night. I know, we have a lot of Winter ahead of us, we haven't gotten out of Fall yet but this has to be one of the warmest Autumns I can recall.

I checked the new models and it appears that the storm next week will be very weak at best with mainly just colder air in the middle part of the country.

I'm starting to get very frustrated with the models. Both the GFS and EMCWF have been upgraded this summer and both have been doing a pathetic job predicting weather features. However, I must give the GFS some credit for doing well in the short and medium ranges.

I guess I'm gonna go back to good ol' fashioned meteorology and not call systems until they are visible on satellite.

Don't give up Synopsis. Oklahoma is supposed to be in the 40's if not 30's over Thanksgiving. That's from the local forecasts this evening.

The potential storm for areas of the central and south-central plains is back on the models today! The first potential snow of the season is possible for Kansas and Missouri within the next week.

Yes, and from what our local stations showed today, the entire state of Neb. may be blanketed in snow within the next few days.
