Southern Plains Winter Storm 2010 Jan 28 [post 13]

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mike U @ 3:51 pm

Dumas, TX storm total snowfall of 8″ as of 2:30pm. There are a lot of 18-24″ drifts, too.  The tallest drift measured 38″ in front of the Days Inn, it swallowed up my metal yard stick.  Snowfall rate will be decreasing slightly through 5pm or so with 3/4″ per hour probably.  I think we will squeeze out another 4 inches at least before all is said and done here in Dumas.

Elsewhere, major ice event underway across much of central/southern Oklahoma.  Numerous power outages are being reported already and portions of Oklahoma are under a state of emergency.  Check out the major precipitation shield engulfing Oklahoma!  Here in Dumas, we are now entering the backside of this storm as it begins to occlude, but should remain in the deformation zone so moderate to occasionally heavy snow will continue through at least the mid-evening hours.
