Look Who’s Under A Winter Storm Warning

Don’t worry, it’s nobody in Oklahoma.  But most of the western United States is under some sort of winter advisory, mostly a winter storm warning that is located from Montana, south to Arizona, and west to California.  There are even blizzard warnings in parts of southwest New Mexico:

The pink colors represent the winter storm warnings, the blue is winter storm watches, and the orange is the blizzard warnings.  These watches and warnings are in effect for a powerful storm that is pounding northern California and parts of the Pacific Northwest with rain and snow.  Some lower elevations in northern California will have over two inches of rain by tomorrow evening, while up to 18 inches of snow will fall in the Sierra Nevada mountains.

This storm will move into the Plains states late Thursday into Friday.  For Oklahoma, that means windy and mild weather out ahead of the storm tomorrow and especially Thursday with highs in the 50s and 60s.  A cold front will then move through the state on Friday with temperatures falling into the 30s and 40s and gusty north winds.  There will be a chance of rain with the front in Oklahoma, but any snow is most likely going to stay to our north in Kansas, Nebraska and the Dakotas.

In case you missed it, find me on Twitter.  I’ll keep you updated on weather happenings.  It’ll be a hoot!
