    February 7th-9th Possible Winter Storm

    By clintbeed1993,

    A possible Winter Storm could take aim at parts of the Great Plains this weekend.  Looking like Saturday might be the best day for it.  Also looking like it might stay south of Nebraska, and mainly affect Kansas and Iowa.  Thoughts?

    What are good/reliable weather stations that don't cost more then 300$?

    By TheBigOne,

    I want a decent weather station this summer after I save up enough during the spring but still I don't want to go above 300$ if I can help it which is the price of a new game console.    I want to start my own blog but I am going to wait until I have a really nice weather station to do so. 


    My parents bought me an Oregon Scientific once but it was a pain in the butt to set up with Dad because of these really tiny screws which you couldn't use ordinary screws.  They were hard to turn for Dad and the Oregon Scientific got wonky after our last ice storm in 2008.   


    We had another brand I cannot remember that wounded up using solar batteries despite NOT saying so in the box and the batteries despite following instructions to the T would not charge.  We held the button for the appropriate amount of time and the company even sent us another model for free after tellling them of the problem but still it would never work which we think it may have been because of constant cloud cover.     The station wasn't too much down the drain thank goodness!  


    The Oregon Craptific one not only had weird screw holes but Dad and I had to build a special stand to mount it on the fence post before it went wonkey after the ice storm.

    2/3-2/4 Southern Lakes/Ohio Valley Winter Storm...

    By DominicR,

    A developing winter storm out of southwest today will bring heavy snows to the Plains tonight and eventually into the lower Lakes and Ohio Valley tommorow and early Wednesday. Currently looks like heaviest will miss Quads, Chicago and Detroit but these areas could get 3-6 inches while areas in N MO/S IA/C IL/IN/OH could get 6-12 inches with locally more. Latest 06z NAM has gone a tad north and wetter up the I-80 north corridor while it has shrunk heavy snow band in IN. Plenty of time still for adjustment(s). 50-60 mile north would put the big cities right back in the heaviest axis of snow!


    06z NAM Snowfall:
