Central and Northern Plains New Years Eve Storm [post 5]

Filed under: 2010 Dec 31 — Mike U @ 7:23 pm

Wintry precipitation to impact much of Southwest Kansas, including Dodge City, tonight. This is a quick update on things on my blog while I’m at work in between updating official products here at WFO Dodge City.  Radar shows precipitation blossoming across eastern New Mexico and West Texas (Figure 1) ahead of the developing upper low.  The precipitation echoes on radar are not too bad considering the scant moisture across West Texas.  The leading edge of the arctic airmass is making a fast run on Dodge City.  Temperatures are crashing fast.  It will be below 32°F here in Dodge City 8 or 9pm…with temperatures falling fast through the remainder of the night.  Precipitation will begin as a mix of freezing rain and sleet… then becoming sleet and snow.  The RUC and HRRR show as much as a quarter inch of total QPF close to Dodge City with heavier QPF amounts northwest of here.  A winter weather advisory is in effect for much of Southwest Kansas (Figure 2).

  5. 66 when I left Hutch, 52 when I reached Stafford, 41 when I got home, 28 now, prob 18 in a few hours. That is amazing even if it doesn’t do much precip-wise.
