Good afternoon Weather Watchers.

We will discuss the Winter Storm but first–

Thank you for continuing to check in with us-

Please say prayers for our neighbors to the EAST- A SIGNIFICANT TORNADO OUTBREAK IS JUST BEGINNING AND WILL OCCUR INTO THE OVERNIGHT HOURS!! This is a DANGEROUS SITUATION IF YOU ARE TRAVELING EAST OF THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER FROM CHICAGO TO NEW ORLEANS – PAY ATTENTION!!! WE HAVE HAD DAMAGE TO COMMUNITIES….

 
  

   

## WINTER STORM UPDATE ##

We have some GOOD NEWS for those traveling this weekend. The storm has slowed down around 12-18 hours. The reason for that is the powerful upper level low looks to head South into Northern Mexico and then catapult North into colder air. What this APPEARS to have done is moved the threat for heavy snow to the areas between Hays to Greensburg on the West and the Kansas Turnpike on the East. 

Here is the GFS Model-  
 Here is the European Model:

 
We don’t expect this Winter Weather to start until LATE SATURDAY WEST and early Sunday morning Central – precip should last through late Monday.  This should give travelers an idea how to plan their weekend….

AS YOU HAVE SEEN- WINTER WEATHER IS DIFFICULT TO PREDICT-THIS IS WHAT WE ARE THINKING NOW- Which could change by tomorrow… ( I think we have a handle on it but do not want to lock in this forecast until tomorrow evening ) 

Notice that the NWS has not issued any Watched or Advisories – confidence is still somewhat mediocre with this storm digging so far South- something we haven’t seen in this pattern. 

Please hang in there an CHECK BACK IN FOR UPDATES.

We are very fortunate that the Tornado Outbreak developed to our East-it will be BIG NEWS tomorrow….

For those who track our patterns and cycles- this system will return close to Valentines Day then again 50 days after that in April and 50 days after that in June.

Questions, please ask!

We will try to answer them as quick as we can. 

We will answer travel related questions first.

Please check in tomorrow morning!
