SHORT TERM. (This evening through Wednesday) Issued at 232 PM CST Tue Jan 28 2020
Areas of snow continue in northern and western Oklahoma, but radar reflectivity intensities are coming down and low-level temperatures are warming back up as the storm system moves east. Will continue with areas of snow this evening, but amounts will be tempered by these factors. We may still see an inch or two in some areas. Since the heavies snowfall is done in northwest Oklahoma, we have converted the warning back to an advisory. We have also extended the eastern part of the advisory until 9 PM CST since snow will persist after 6 PM. Farther east and south, the chance of accumulating snow is lower, and will not expand the geography of the advisory.
Skies should begin to clear somewhat in the west as the storm system moves east, but with fresh snow cover, clearing skies and light winds, will have the potential of freezing fog Wednesday morning.
LONG TERM. (Wednesday night through next Monday) Issued at 249 PM CST Tue Jan 28 2020
The upper-level wave that is bringing the current precipitation will continue to move through and bring additional precip chances Thursday into Friday for mainly southern parts of Oklahoma and most of western north Texas. There is a slight potential for some wintry precipitation in the western portions of our Texas counties Thursday morning. Chances for a wintry mix will be brief, however, before temperatures increase and only rain remains.
Following the trough and cold front, warmer temperatures and calm weather is expected for the weekend. Next chance of precipitation appears to in northwestern Oklahoma with the next upper-level trough moving through next Tuesday into Wednesday. One bit of concern that may throw a wrench in the forecast is some uncertainty with the long- term models hinting at an upper-level cutoff low over the weekend. The low would be generated over the Rockies and dig to the southwest over the Baja Peninsula, where it will become cutoff from the primary flow over the weekend. This cutoff low is expected to then be reingested into the flow early next week as the next trough begins to move onshore from the Pacific. The models are pretty strongly in agreement on the scenario, however any variation in timing could shift the precipitation chances, and will need to be monitored going forward.
AVIATION. (00Z TAFS) Issued at 516 PM CST Tue Jan 28 2020
Poor flight conditions are expected through tonight and into Wed morning over all terminals. Precipitation is expected over PNC and OKC/OUN until 03-06Z or so, mainly in the form of RA/DZ. Some RASN, however, will be possible over PNC. Expect BR near WWR and CSM after 06Z. VSBY may briefly drop to less than 1SM at WWR, which may result in icing below 010 or so. Flight conditions will improve after 15Z Wed to MVFR cigs, with decreasing north winds.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases.
