  • Super Bowl weather, Groundhog Day and more snow?

    Hi everyone

    It looks as though February is going to be a busy month in weather-land.  We’ve already got a few storms on the horizon that will bring snow/sleet/freezing rain and more cold temperatures to a large chunk of the U.S.

    So let’s start with the first system:

    One storm is pushing across the Midwest and Great Lakes bringing  3-6” of snow through the region.  Some sleet and light freezing rain will also mix in. 

    Another system will develop across the Southern Plains.  Winter Storm Watches and Advisories are posted as generally 2-5” of snow will fall from the TX/OK border toward the Mississippi River Valley.  Freezing rain will also fall across the Red River Valley, making travel dangerous overnight.    This fast-moving system will bring snow to the Ohio Valley and Tennessee Valley Sunday, then into the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast on Monday.  Some of these snow totals could be impressive for a messy commute in across some of the big cities!

    Weather for the Super Bowl is pretty good all things considered.  Milder temperatures, and the snow shouldn’t start until the early morning hours of Monday.

    And across the West, we’ll finally get some much needed moisture on areas that are suffering from extreme to exceptional drought.

    As for Groundhog Day tomorrow, I’m not very optimistic about an early spring, let’s just put it that way!

    I’ll have more details about the next few storms (including one on Tues/Wednesday) tomorrow and Monday!

    Be safe all!

Sam, congratulations on a great Seahawks victory. I'm sure Seattle fans are still celebrating the victory. I would have been rooting for them had they not been playing against Peyton. I turned the game off after the 2nd half kickoff. I had enough by that point! Have fun celebrating! Hey to everyone else. It looks like we have about 5-6 inches of really wet snow out there and it's still coming down. At least I don't have to go to work today. Stay safe, everyone! Margie

Sam, congratulations to your Seahawks on their dominating victory. I always wonder when the Super Bowl is a blowout how unhappy are companies that spend millions on a commercial that runs durimg the 4th quarter when the viewership may be half of what it was at the start? When an ad runs durimg the game is a random selection, I believe. Hope all had a great weekend. In the 70's yesterday and 30's today. I prefer the 70's. JB

Your humble fellow blogger offers his heartfelt sympathy to all the Bronco's fans. The Ponies tried hard though. I heard the cause of their loss was "too much oxygen in the air". They were used to playing in the rarified atmosphere of Denver which is lower in oxygen content than at sea level. Janice, you do a good job on spam control. I was just having a bad day or sumthin. All you fine people stay safe, stay happy, and stay you! Sam

Janice, you are so right with the predictions on weather. We're in the Midwest and we are getting lots of snow today...like about 6 to 8 inches. Yikes. Where do we go with it? I must confess, it is beautiful...looking from the inside out! Have a great time everyone watching the Super Bowl on Sunday. Go Broncos and Peyton Manning! Be safe and warm. Audrey
