Say It Isn't So . . .

This is how we may be celebrating the
first day of spring in Oklahoma!
Yikes!

At least my tulips aren't blooming.


TULSA, OK -- Enjoy Friday's spring-like weather. News On 6 meteorologist Dick Faurot says, because "the bottom is fixing to drop out just in time for the weekend and the ‘official' start to Spring."
Rain changing to sleet and snow is in the forecast for Saturday morning with the forecast calling for six plus inches of snow falling across much of northeastern Oklahoma.
The cold front is expected to push through the area overnight Friday with the temperature dropping from the low 70's Friday afternoon to a much colder start to the day on Saturday.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for heavy snow, which is in effect from Saturday morning through Sunday evening.

Rhonda in OK said...

really crazy! I have laundry hanging on the line today

the NBC weathermen in OKC are saying an even worse forecast - up to 14 inches just like Christmas Eve.

Linda C said...

Whoa!Crazy! We are only expecting 1-3 inches up here. And then warm temps right away, so it won't stay around. Hopefully, your temps will take care of it quickly!!

Take care!

Oh yuck!
I sure hope that it isn't as bad as it is expected to be. Hope the weather man is wrong!
Stay warm and safe.
Have a great day!

Oh cutie pie.. I feel for you!
We are zone 5a here, and we have had such a LONG, LONG winter. The sun is shinning today, finally. I'll be thinking warm thoughts and sending them your way:)

Golly, I thought March was a very changeable month up here in the north east! The good thing is you know that it won't last. One final chance to enjoy that hot chocolate before the temps start to soar! Stay warm:)
