I'm staring at the current watch/warning map, and I can't remember seeing such a huge area under a Blizzard Warning in a long time. :blink:
The advisory map is just amazing!

I am displeased at the lack of instability here where I live. Lots of rain but there's low CAPE, therefore, little or no lightning.  :thumbdown: :angry: It's only February 1st, though. Later on, there will probably be more oppurtunities for thunderstorms and severe weather.

Well, I think getting the beneficial rainfall is more important and the best thing out of this. Severe weather is all fine and well, but I hate dealing with it during the Winter, the dynamics are better in the Spring and it's warmer for a longer period of time. I rather have a soaking cold 2 inch rainfall than suffer through another long term drought where we'll be begging to get a drop in the bucket. Were about 4 inches behind so this rainfall should be a really good drought buster for us.  :yes:

Cold and rain suck in general but folks in the south need a good rain in some locations! Tomorrow here it is going to go from the upper 30s to 70s then back to 40s. Its a temperature roller coaster!

I'll get a picture when I can, but the visible satellite is showing nothing but white across Texas, Oklahoma, and Missouri. It's almost scary.

Martin, if you want a real roller coaster, then you should have come here when it was 75 over the weekend and now below 20 degrees for the next two days.

Tonight's low may get as cold as 8 degrees...the coldest temperature is 15 years!!! :o Almost 300 schools in the Metroplex have already been closed for tomorrow because the ice we got today will not melt under these conditions.

Its dark outside. Visible Satellite needs the suns light for the satellite to see the clouds.

Nevermind, I read that wrong. Is it showing the snow on the ground? Please post at pic, would love to see it.

I'm lucky that I only got rain out of it.  I can't imagine all the headaches that the rest of the country experienced with this storm.  Hope all of you stayed safe and warm!
