    2/25 weather thread

    How is this shaping up for timing and amounts? Girls state tourney time. Seems like its been a while since we've taken a good shot from Mother Nature during the tourney.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    There's going to be another storm on the 25th?

    *edit* Saw that, sorry, I didn't realize we were in for another one. My bad!

    When news of tomorrow's storm broke, there was talk that the second storm was supposed to be as strong or stronger. Curious to hear if that's still the case.

    Just checking out weather.com and it has had us all over the map as far as likelihood of snow then. Was 80 earlier in week, down to 20 2 days ago, now back up to 70. Looks like with temps Monday there's a chance of this bringing some ice?

    Here's my (very) amateur take:

    The next storm is supposed to follow the same path as this storm, but maybe a little further west. From what I've read the models are all over the place on timing, sometime between Sunday evening and Tuesday morning. With a big storm like the one tomorrow, it leaves a "wake" or a disturbance in the atmosphere that can affect the next storm, and they won't know exactly how until this storm plays out. So I'd expect it to be Saturday before anyone has a real handle on the Monday storm. From what the meteorologists have written so far, they expect it to take a similar path, and to have plenty of moisture, but for the temperatures to be significantly warmer, so it could be a rain-to-snow event, it could be a mix/ice event or it could be significant snows.

    The 10-day forecast in CR shows ~4 in of snow with that one.

    Clearly the 2012 apocalypse was more than a one day process.

    Hope it doesn't effect the Kansas game Monday night. Need a large crowd there for that one.

    Re: 2/25 weather thread

    All of this speculation is worthless unless I can get exact snow total and the exact time the first flake will hit the ground. My nephew has looked outside today and said there is NO WAY we are getting snow next week because it is sunny today. I believe him more than this psuedo-science of "meteorology".
