Nice LP near Colony, Okla.


Well, 850 miles, no tornadoes, but a nice mesocyclone w/wall cloud trying to put down a tornado, but a storm just to the SW of this one was robbing the moisture.....maybe next time...

Severe storm potential today through Monday...

This is a graphic put out by the National Weather Service in Tulsa. It depicts forecasted severe weather potential for their warning area, A.K.A. Green Country, for Monday, March 31. I don't think that I have seen a 60% probability of severe weather forecasted this far out. All I can say is, if you are a trained spotter or chaser, get your gear ready! If you aren't, please stay close to TV (channel 2 has the best coverage..and yes, I do chase for them!!) or radio and keep yourself abreast of the changing weather situation. This may be a significant severe weather event!!
Oh yeah....and get yourself a weather radio. They are about 20.00 and you can program them to alert you if there is a warning in your county while you sleep.....go on....get one!! (Wally world has them)

Flooding in Arkansas...

video

My good friend Heidi Farrar shot these pics from Izard County Arkansas yesterday. This is the same area that we went to to take relief supplies after a devastating tornado outbreak killed over 50 people in three states back in February. Please pray for all of our flood victims as I had just a little water come into my garage but there was no harm done.....

rain, rain, go away...

video

Got a little over 3 inches at my house in Verdigris, much more to my south & east. Also much more over at my neighbor's house in Izard County, Arkansas (see next post)..

I shot this video at 31st st & Mingo creek in Tulsa.

Finally the sun came out today!!

Storm season begins...

video

Well, we are officially in storm season. We had heavy rain, and a little hail in Tulsa. Also, a tornado was reported in southeast Oklahoma, near Antlers. Fortunately there were no injuries.

We are in the middle of an active pattern now. Storms are expected today, Monday, Tuesday, and possibly into Wednesday. Be sure to watch KJRH and stay up to date on the weather.

...also storms may come through at night as we are sleeping, so I would strongly suggest going to Wally-World and buying yourself a NOAA weather radio. They are simple to set alarms county by county so you can set it to go off only in your county. Mine cost 12 bucks!

Lucky, in the snow....

This is my dog Lucky. Lucky likes everyone, but he doesn't like snow. I shot this the other night while it was snowing.....
Well, here in NE Okla we have dodged another bullet. South & East of me folks are gettin' hammered with hopefully the last winter storm o' the season:)

Stormy Sunday...

Well, it looks like storms today! The greatest severe potential looks like SW Okla. I will probably be out in this taking pictures in the rain! Oh yeah, then snow on Monday! Potential for a big snow here in March! Gotta love Oklahoma!!
