.DISCUSSION...
THOUGH WARMING...TEMPERATURES ARE STILL AROUND FREEZING ACROSS
THE ADVISORY AREA. THE LOWER LEVELS OF THE ATMOSPHERE CONTINUE TO
SATURATE AND RADAR IS STARTING TO SHOW SOME RETURNS WHICH COULD
EVENTUALLY MAKE IT TO THE SURFACE...MOST LIKELY AS DRIZZLE. ANY
PRECIPITATION THAT REACHES THE GROUND...AGAIN MORE LIKELY IN THE
FORM OF DRIZZLE...MAY FREEZE ON CONTACT. ACCUMULATIONS IF ANY WILL
BE LIGHT BUT STILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO CAUSE SOME TRAVEL ISSUES.
THREAT OF WET BULBING ALSO A CONCERN IN THE SHORT TERM WITH ANY
PRECIP WHERE READINGS ARE CURRENTLY JUST ABOVE FREEZING. WENT AHEAD
AND EXTENDED WW ADVSY UNTIL NOON WHICH MATCHES UP W/ NEIGHBORING
OFFICES TOO. WE WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR TEMPERATURE AND RADAR
TRENDS AND POSSIBLY FURTHER EXTEND THIS ADVISORY IF NEEDED.

OTHERWISE...TWEAKED 1ST PERIOD GRIDS TO ADJUST TEMPS TO MATCH
CURRENT TRENDS. NAM12, TX TECH WRF & HRRR SUGGEST INCREASING LIGHT
PRECIP COVERAGE 2-9 PM ACROSS THE REGION AS INFLUENCE OF
SHORTWAVE BECOMES FELT AND LLVLS FURTHER SATURATE. 47

Will we get any more winter weather today? It doesn't look like it! The temperatures have been in the high 30's since this morning and it has been drizzling with some light rain since sometime during the late morning, but still no sleet, snow, freezing rain, or ice pellets. I don't think we are going to get any winter precipitation today. The weather forecasters at NOAA said that would let us know. 
On a side note, I can't wait until the second week of March when the temperatures usually start to get warmer, especially after a very cold winter. It looks like the temperatures don't start to warm up until after the second week of March, in Houston, TX.
Anyway maybe some winter weather today, but i'm not really sure I want to see any anymore. I already saw a nice light, maybe sometimes moderate sleet shower yesterday, which is what I've been wanting to see. So unless we get some more sleet, or snow showers, i'm not really that interested, but anyway.....
I don't know what else to say! I'll let y'all know if any winter storm advisories, watch's, or warnings show up. Bye!

  1. Crazy winter weather, isn't it, Joseph? We were in Texas, and it snowed! It snowed in Missouri and Kansas, too. I am hoping for an early, calm spring. Be safe!

    1. Ya the weather forecasters forecasted highs in the low 70's today and next Thursday,, after a cold front pushes through Monday, or Tuesday. The the high temperatures are forecasted to stay in the high 60's after Thursday through the 17th, I hope it stays that way! : )

  2. After some cooler weather and rain earlier this week, today was a gorgeous day here and we are supposed to be warming up into the 70s into the new week. Its hard to imagine with the nice weather we have had this winter that other parts of the country are having such struggles with frigid temps and lots of snow.
