Texas, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Central Midwest

Discussion in 'Severe Weather' started by Pastor Gary, Jan 10, 2007.

  1. Texas, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Central Midwest

    In the wake of several significant snow events in Colorado, Kansas and Nebraska in recent days, the situation is just now beginning to be over with. As of Tuesday, January 09, several sections of the Interstates were still only running one lane in each direction in places due to snow cover and drifting. Today the Denver area is experiencing warmer than normal temperatures, but starting Friday, a return to the deep freeze is anticipated with snow possible each day through Monday January 15th. To our members in the area, use caution while on the roads this weekend. Take care and be safe.

  2. From the plains of NE Colorado:

    We are getting an artic cold front tomorrow afternoon with some accumulating snows but it does not look as bad as the last 2 blizzards we received. On another note, all this snow is a blessing from heaven considering the ongoing drought here. Sometimes blessings can be a lot of work, can they not?
     
  3. Absolutely, Gibby... and we are aware of the summertime drought situation. However, when the spring melt takes place, we PRAY that it is at a normal rate rather than all at once. The resulting runoff and flooding could be worse than the blizzard inconveniences this winter.

    Our weather studies group predicted a conversion from a La Nina to an El Nino pattern 5 months before it actually took place last year. Our modeling software is quite good. The weather patterns in the southwest and plains states are a direct result of the warmer west-central Pacific waters in providing a non standard Jet Stream path this winter. Expect more of the same for the next couple of months in the areas which have already experienced lower than normal temperatures and higher than normal precipitation.
     
  4. Does it say a wet spring? I love thunderstorms and severe weather. In my job, I get to go chase tornadoes (at least spot them) when they start up in late spring/early summer. Of course, I don't want to see any damage or injuries; I just think supercell thunderstorms are absolutely magnificent.
     
  5. Gibby and others in the central plains and eastern Rockies: the El Nino effect will be around for awhile and because of the patterns which normally transition from one stage to another in springtime, there may in fact be some significant severe storms throughout the same regions that are currently being affected by blizzards, high winds and ice storms. Tornado Alley may be more active than average - at least for the first part of the active season.

    This weekend will provide more hardships in that general area - from the Texas - Oklahoma line up into Illinois and Indiana with freezing rain, some snow in the western areas of the zone and ice build up. This unfortunately will cause more power issues, treacherous roads in some areas and the resulting traffic crashes. Use caution while traveling and monitor your local NOAA - NWS weather and your local Emergency Operations Center outlets for official news and advisories.

  6. I have also heard that we are going to have an extremely hot summer from el nino.
     
  7. That is generally the rule, but there are several variables in TIMING as to just where the drift of the el nino waters will be positioned during the summer months. It does change in loction due to currents, surface winds and also the effects of hurricanes in the western Pacific using up surface water energy and displacing it and redistributing it over the hurricane's track. We will be watching these issues closely.
     
  8. Jan 19, 2007: ANOTHER similar storm is moving from the east central New Mexico and west Texas border area into the same locations that were affected by the recent ice storms and flooding rains. For those persons who will be affected again by this next weather front, we will pray for you and your families. PLEASE heed the watches and warnings posted by your local NOAA and NWS offices and listen carefully to the information provided by your local Emergency Operations Centers.
