This is an image from the GOES satellite system of the snow cover over portions of TX/OK. Upwards of 8-10 inches fell in parts of the Panhandle with 4″+ totals being common in western Oklahoma. The temperatures are above freezing this evening and the snow will continue to gradually melt away. Another system may bring winter weather to the area by early weekend. More later…
Captured this just a short time ago from John’s stream of a funnel cloud heading into Collins, MS. These cells mean business as there are a number of tornado warnings out. John, Brantley, Michael, and Nick are in the field live! Click the links above!
Gorgeous sky this morning along US 280 in central Alabama. This is all ahead of a frontal system that will cause heavy rain and severe weather later today.
Heavy snow bands are still ongoing across portions of New England this morning as our powerful surface system continues to slide northward off of the east coast of the United States. Only light snow continues for the metro New York area and has almost tapered off completely in portions of New Jersey. However, Boston is still in the thick of heavier snow bands in what is considered a deformation axis where surface convergence is maximized. Local rates of near 2″ per hour could still occur for the next few hours before the system slides a little further north. Ground blizzard conditions will continue throughout at least the rest of the day as winds continue to howl.
These current totals show you some portions of the NE have been buried by snow…literally. We have seen many photos floating around social networking of snow half way up doors. In many cases people are trapped due to this. Stay indoors and keep warm for a few days. You guys won’t be going anywhere across CT/RI/MA.
