Good morning bloggers,
Southern California is burning to a crisp with evacuations in neighborhoods that are being threatened, burning up, as a disaster is continuing out west. At the same time a rare southern United States snowstorm is in progress this morning.
I saw this map that was tweeted out last night. It is titled, ” Days since Last Winter Weather Advisory by NWS Office”, The zeros show the regions that were under an advisory last night or this morning. What is disturbing? Look at the KC region. My goodness! Take a look at one of the model forecasts valid this afternoon:
It is really a fascinating storm. Let’s remember this one for the next cycle as well. It snowed in San Antonio and Austin, Texas as well. And, this is the part of the pattern I picked to end the snowflake contest in KC. Over 13,000 people participated in the contest, and KC has no sign of any snow in sight, but look at what is forecast to develop in the next two weeks:
A rather large and cold Arctic air mass is growing, and within two weeks it is forecast to be rather expansive over almost all of Canada extending into Alaska and then across the North Pole.
While all of this happens, KC continues to be dry with no storm in sight. We will discuss all of this on 41 Action News tonight. Thank you for spending a few minutes of your day reading the Action Weather Blog featuring Weather2020 and the LRC. Let’s discuss any of this that comes to your mind over on the Weather2020 blog.
Have a great Friday!
