Blizzard Warning, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas...UPDATE: National Guard Called In To The Texas Panhandle
... Blizzard Warning in effect from 6 PM this evening to 3 am CST
Tuesday for all of the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles...

The National Weather Service in Amarillo has issued a Blizzard
Warning... which is in effect from 6 PM this evening to 3 am CST
Tuesday. The Winter Storm Watch is no longer in effect.

* Event... snow will increase in intensity tonight and continue into
Monday across the panhandles. Total snowfall accumulations of 8 to
14 inches will be likely across the central and eastern Texas and
Oklahoma panhandles with 3 to 8 inches across the western Texas and
Oklahoma panhandles. In addition... strong northerly winds of 30 to
40 miles per hour with gusts to 60 miles per hour will create extremely
dangerous travel conditions...

This is a pretty good storm, so be careful if you are traveling on the I40 Corridor through Oklahoma & The Texas Panhandle this evening and Monday...

Of course you'll barely hear about this on the National News...until the storm makes it to the East Coast...

Then they will freak the fuck out, declare a state of Emergency, go to Defcon 1, send out the bombers, prep the nukes, and open the FEMA camps...

Anyway, a warning for all travelers...

But don't worry about the people who live out here...we don't need the government to tell us what to do when we get a little snow in winter...

Hey, Saddletramp. Take a look at this! Click on the top where it says,"URGENT". It'll take you to a slide/video presentation of the storm. Really nice! I think this is the first time they've done this.

Looks like you are in for it today. Stay safe up there, AND, don't forget your bread and milk!LOL I've got mine, but I have to hit the store for a couple of things myself. We have a little more time to get ready than you do.

If it's not a blizzard, it's tornadoes, dust, hail, t-storms, high heat, or a giant accident on the I-27/I-40 interchange! The worst spot up there that I've been in is just east of Amarillo. The weather across that section of I-40 always gets hit with something.

The hazardous weather outlook from Norman, OK. It covers ALL of Oklahoma and the western North Texas region. It's not good guys. I don't wish severe weather on anyone, but we NEED the moisture.

Central OK here.

It's coming, folks. Looks like Monday night into Tuesday morning will be the worst of it here.

If you have any urgent needs to take care of, get it done TODAY.

Might be a good idea to prepare to be off work/school/ other obligations for Tuesday, perhaps Wednesday as well.

Agreed with our Texan neighbors, we need the moisture -- and this will be the kind that soaks in and stays -- but this is one helluva way to get it.

Batten down. It's coming.

It's not just the snow, either. There will be severe t-storms around the areas getting the snow. Even a possiblity of rain/snow mix as far south as San Angelo.

This is a whopper of a storm and late in the season for us. It's been in the 60's and 70's for awhile, in the Lubbock area. I think a lot of people here will be caught off guard.

We had thundersnow last week in central OK, and I expect more of it when the front first comes in.

We're at 63 degrees here now, near Tinker AFB, and people are out in shorts and teeshirts. Perfect clear bright sky, gorgeous day, and ZERO sign of impending disaster.

OkC -- about 15 miles N of Norman -- expected to recieve 4"-8" of snow.

Not some postcard fluffy snow, but hard-driven snow that will drift high enough to shut down east-west roads. Not to mention creating white-out conditions and frostbite.

It's not the depth of the snow... it's the wind that makes this such a dangerous storm.
