Good morning everyone. We are waiting for the flip side of the storms last night with the frigid cold and threat of winter elements. One thing I do love about the Tulsa NWS office is they put out these great timing slides and update them often. I'm hoping that something shifts and that the freezing rain threat drops significantly. However, we are ready with a generator and food and such lol. #93LessonsLearned

Not sure if the system moving into SoCal is separate from the Great Plains system (if it's not, then this is a very fast moving winter storm similar to the Thanksgiving Day '19 bomb cyclone.)

We did get a quick hitting but significant winter storm on the night of the 15th. A little bit of everything here: initially rain turning into sleet, graupel, some snow and finally some thundersnow as the precipitation began to wind down.

Apparently we have a chance of thundersnow again tonight. The snow levels are currently about 5,000 feet, but should drop to about 2,000 feet by tonight into early Wednesday.

You gotta love SoCal weather. Always something interesting going on. Good luck with the Thundersnow!

So far nothing yet in terms of snow, just some wind and a lot of fast moving clouds. Weather service said the bulk of it would be tonight into early tomorrow morning so we'll see how this unfolds.

Another interesting note about the February 15 winter storm is that it brought an abupt end to that one heat wave. Went from clear weather with 80's temps to thundersnow in the span of about 24-48 hours.

Well we just got this update from NWS Tulsa. Bring on the Thunder Sleet!

We had some lighting and thunder this morning as it started with snow to sleet and then hail. Trying to find my winter weather bingo card.
