Return to Winter

I know we won't see anything like this shot on my drive home last month.....but some area may see Winter weather on more time this season. As of Friday night the NWS is hedging their bet for central Arkansas and just mentioning a turnover to snow Sunday night. Extreme northwest Arkansas (Benton County) could see 5 or 6 inches.....Fayetteville 1 to 2 inches. Pam is forecasting maybe a half inch tomorrow evening. We'll watch for photos. Kelly looks clear at this time with just a cold rain. Springs storms like this are very hard to predict. A slight movement to the north or the south can mean rain only to heavy snow. The calender says Spring, so I'm ready for warmth.

Okay....earlier this morning it was saying up to 2" for us by tomorrow. Now it's maybe and inch. Of course we're supposed to be in the 70s with storms later today before dropping to the low 30s tonight. Sheesh!

Poor Vic is going to have to drive through the storms to get back to school today.

Guess I should have specified... that was snow accumulation predicted, not rain.

I just hope we don't get tornados this time like we did a little over a week ago. At least that was in the other end of the county. It was bad enough getting the large hail.

Don't know how much of any snow we'll get but we had tons of rain since 2 or 3 AM and right now it 35and feels like 24!!!

A last blast with a smidge of snow would be fun!! :) Not holding my breath, however.

Oklahoma is getting slammed!!!
