Spring's last gasp!
Welcome to Oklahoma where winter runs March 1-3, spring severe weather season
starts January 1 and ends December 31, and summer shows up whenever it darned
well feels like it. We've covered the heat now. Been there, done that. How about
our first 100s of the year, and a max heat index of 113 on the map?
And more of the same today. Be ready, Mother Nature certainly is. I think these
values are an underestimate, but I hope I'm wrong.
A bit of a cool down this weekend, but that's because of a trough of low
pressure, which will drag a cool front and a dryline into Oklahoma. And that,
of course, means storms and severe weather! Doesn't matter what the calendar
says. So here we go again. Watch out for the weather Saturday afternoon and
evening, and again overnight into Sunday AND then Sunday afternoon once again.
Looks like giant hail and widescale severe wind threat will be the most
likely, uhhhhh, threats (I hate when I do that), but tornadoes can't be ruled
out either. As we saw earlier this week, though, doesn't take a tornado to
ruin somebody's day.
And while our not-so-clever meme indicated this will be the end of our spring
severe weather season, will it REALLY be the end? Is Rocky celebrating to
early? He did lose that fight, ya know.
Mother Nature didn't hear no bell.
