Weather in your area 2022

Post by Neocon » Sun Jan 02, 2022 4:31 pm

New Year, new weather

Last week the temperatures in NWTN were warm, in the 60s-70s F by the end of the week. A mess of strong storms passed through late Friday night. My new weather alert radio announced a suspected tornado passing north of town, but I am pretty sure it remained a funnel cloud and did little damage if any. It is currently in the low 30s F and we are expecting to get a little bit of snow today and a lot of snow later in the week.

EDIT: The ground is currently covered by snow!

Thanks for starting the new thread Patrick :).

The last thing you guys need is more severe weather, glad to see that funnel cloud did not do much.

This weekend we got our first cold blast in quite some time; December was a pretty warm month with highs on many days at 60F or above (had some 80F days as well).

On Saturday morning, an arctic front passed through dropping the temp during the day with a low around 10F on Sunday morning; also brought a dusting of snow which didn't last long. Good thing is this airmass is moving out fairly soon and we'll have a warming trend the next few days, followed by another cold snap around Thursday with cold temps again. But that won't last long either and we'll be back in the 60s by Saturday.

Been off school 3 days this week (M,T,F) for snow. We got 4-5 inches of snow Sunday night into Monday, and an additional 3 or so Thursday night/Friday morning.

We got about that much snow here in NWTN starting Thursday morning, and it snowed most of the day Thursday. It stayed well below freezing until this morning, and now the snow has melted. Rain is moving in this evening, but it is staying cool and we are expecting it to be below freezing again on Sunday night.

Earlier this week we were WELL below freezing, but we’re getting warmer. Freezing rain and sleet are expected tomorrow morning and rain in the afternoon.

On Tuesday the high was in the mid 60s, then we got the expected arctic blast. After a very brief period of a freezing rain/sleet mix yesterday afternoon, we started getting snow and it fell through this evening; still expecting one last round overnight.

6 inches and counting in our area; about 8 a little further to the north. Most locations have had 4-6 inches on average.

Temps are expected to slowly get back to above freezing but overnight lows will be well below that the next 3-4 nights. Expecting 60s again for the highs next weekend.

We also had mid-60s on Tuesday and 50s into Wednesday. Starting during the night, it got colder (low 30s) and started raining ice this morning, which has coated everything as the temperature has dropped into the 20s. The result is widespread power outages ranging from an hour at my house to several hours in places around the area.

If you have never seen an ice storm, imagine everything being coated in a layer of ice about 3-5 mm thick. Car doors cannot be opened. Solid surfaces cannot be walked on safely. Trees are weighed down so that their limbs droop to the ground, cracking or breaking, and sometimes pulling down power and phone lines. Power lines themselves are coated in ice, which weighs down on them and can break them if they get heavy enough.

It may melt on Sunday.

^ I was wondering about that Pat. No stranger here when it comes to ice storms (those are a Mother Nature specialty in these parts).

Good to see it was only an hour at your place, no electricity in cold weather = no good. Worst storm for us was back in Dec. '07. Two to three rounds of freezing rain in a large swath of the state resulted in power being out anywhere from 3 days (for us; the low-end) to about a month in the country. Lines kept coming down pretty much everywhere. If you didn't lose power then you basically won the ice storm lottery.

Getting severe storms late tonight into early tomorrow morning, followed by cold temps and gusty northerly winds. Not usual for this time of year but also not unheard of. One thing we could do without though is hail. I think we had enough last year :lol:.

So, that same storm system TFan mentioned above just made its way over to Mississippi and put my entire county, as well as others surrounding it, into a huge blackout. Exactly one year to the day since last year's winter storm also put us in a blackout, strangely enough. Yay!

Not sure if I'll be able to join FNF tomorrow night because of this, but we have a generator now, so we'll see.

Hope you get your power back on soon. Yep we remember the arctic plunge of 2021 quite well also, 8 days of temps at or below 20F. Car pileups. Rolling blackouts. No thanks.

Another week, another mid-week freezer bag ... of mixed precipitation. About to get mostly sleet with some freezing rain here; some sleet and snow to our north; more of freezing rain to our east. Hopefully no one there loses electricity since ice totals are expected to be on the higher side. The cold front from up north came through earlier today. Yesterday, highs in the 70s, today, highs in the mid-30s.

It came a flood here in NWTN this morning. A literal flood. Water was up everywhere, but not across the main roads. It was raining hard and fast, though, so traffic was moving slow (when it was behind me, at least, cause I drove slow).

EDIT from the next day: Currently freezing rain and sleet.

Spring has definitely sprung in the Plains states, and we know what that means. Had a bunch of tornadoes and hail yesterday in southern OK and central TX. Unfortunately some of them caused damage in southern OK.

Of note were tornadoes that caused damage in Round Rock, TX and other parts of the Austin-Round Rock metro; not unheard of but very rare for that part of the country to get severe weather.
