Heavy Ice, Light Snow, Very Cold Weather
For The Weekend....

Models Still Offering Diffrent Views On What Is
Going To Take Place From Friday Through Early Next
Week, But Non The Less It Is Expected That Very Cold
Air With High Temps In The Teens And 20s Region Wide
Across The Southern Plains Region Can Be Expected
From Late Friday Through The Mid Part Of Next Week.

How Much Ice, Snow Is Still In Question Due To Model
Conflicts At The Moment, But I Expect Areas Of Inches
Of Ice Esp From Nc Ok Southward Into Parts Of N And Nw
Tx... As Noted On The Wso From Earlyer, May Need To Upgrade
Areas In The Mod Risk Area To High Risk In Later Outlooks..

People Within The Area Of The Mod And High Risk Areas
Should Start Getting Ready Today And Thursday For
This Possible Ice Storm And Stock Up On House Hold Items
Needed Make Sure The Car Has Plenty Of Gas And Is Winter
Prepared, That You Have Plenty Of Daily Stuff That You Need
To Go For Days Without Leaving Your Home As This Possibly
Could Last For Several Days...

Stay With Us Right Here Or Local Tv Or Radio For The Very Latest
Information On This Possible Winter Storm..

Todd, what do you feel will be the main precip type for areas 45 miles due west of Topeka? Freezing rain, sleet, or snow? With how strong this cold air seems to be, I cant see the amounts of freezing rain being advertised for this area to occur. I'm thinking about 7 inches when all said and done.

Frz Rain/sleet... Light To Mod Snow... Mostly Frz Rain/sleet
Thats Just A Quick Look I'm Mostly On Ok And Tx Forecast
But I Think Regional Wide Its Gonna Be A Major Ice Storm Event..
I Could Wind Up Being Wrong But All Signs Point That Way And
If You Do The Figures By Surgeing The Front Down Quicker Then
The Models It All Adds Up I Just Dont Buy The Models Hanging The
Front And Or Slowing It Down... But For The Answer I Say Mostly
Frz Rain/sleet In Your Region.. But Time Will Tell Tomorrow We Should All Have A Better Idea On This...

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Norman Ok
953 Pm Cst Wed Jan 10 2007

Focus Tonight Is On The Impending Arctic Outbreak And Ice Storm
Potential. Earlier Plan Was To Go With The 18z Nam12 Grids But
Move Them Forward About 6 Hours Thu Night Through Sat To Account
For An Expected Faster/stronger Arctic Intrusion. Should Have Just
Waited For The 0z Run... Which Is Nearly 24 Hrs Faster Than What
We Were Looking At On Yesterday`s 18z Run And Even Faster Than Our
Modified 18z Run. Current Plunge Of Cold Air Through Mt And The
Dakotas - Along With A Persisting Trend Of The Models To Speed Up
The Front - Are Strong Indications That Even The Fastest Of The
Current Model Runs Are Apt To Be Too Slow. Would Not Be Surprised
To See The Front To Near Or Se Of I-44 In Central/sw Ok Before
Daybreak Friday. With This In Mind... Sfc Temps In The Model
Grids Are Likely Too Warm Friday Afternoon-night And The Sfc
Freezing Line Will Be Farther S/se Than Currently Advertized.
Newly-arrived Met Mos Indicates Fropa At Okc By Or Around 12z
Fri... And Temps Falling To Below 32 By 21z. This Is A Serious
Concern Given The Model Qpf... Which Spreads Widespread 0.5 To 1
Inch Amounts E/ne Across A Wide Swath Through The Middle Of The
Cwa During The Day. Nam Qpf Has Good Support From The Ngm. 00z Gfs
Not Yet In. Nam Also Intcates A Second Round Of Significant Precip
Streaking Ne Across Much The Same Area Late Sat Night.

Bottom Line Is Turning Colder Faster Thu Night Into Fri... And
Freezing Precip Is Imminent. Details Remain Uncertain Regarding
Timing/location And Specific Amounts... But Freezing Rain Looks By
Far To Be The Primary Winter Precip Type. The Potential Exists For
A Significant Ice Storm Over Parts Of The Area Beginning As Early As
Friday And Continuing As Multiple Waves Into Saturday Night. Winter
Storm Watches Will Likely Be Needed As Early As The Early-morning
Package Tomorrow Morning... Most Likely Near And/or N Of The I-44

May Hold True And This Folks Could Be A Major Major Ice
Storm With The First Round Of Ice Fri Eve And Then A Couple
More Rounds During The Day Sat Into Sat Night...

Note: Oun Is It Seems Is Gonna Issue A Winter Storm Watch
From Law To Okc Northwest In The Morning Package...

The risk of a significant ice storm continues to increase. Freezing temperatures will reach I-44 (including the okc metro area) by approximately 8 to 9 a.m tomorrow morning! I believe attm it would be wise on nws fwd
to issue a winter storm watch for the dfw metroplex as this front is gonna
surge south and the dallas-fortworth metroplex looks to also be a target by
early to midday sat into sunday eve with a inch or so of ice poss in the dfw
area... heavyest appears like it will be either side of i-44 n or s in ok.. from lawton to okc either side with areas of 2+ inches of ice...

I will have more through out the afternoon its gonna be a long
one this is gonna be a MAJOR MAJOR weather event no doubts
about it for portions of ok and tx with likely regional wide power outages
and down trees being a big concern by sun...
