Ok, now I can say that I have seen it all!! For most of you that know me as a meteorologist and have been reading the blog since the beginning will know that I have a special place in my heart for the Midwest. I went to college in Oklahoma, worked my first TV station there, then spent 10 years in Arkansas. In the 18 years I was out there I can honestly say that I have never seen snow in OK and AR in May!!
What you are looking at above is a good old fashioned "Blue Norther", all it is is major cold air that comes in from Canada and spills into Lubbock, TX then quickly moves east over the subsequent days. This is typical for the months of October - March.... every once in a while one of these things come down in April, but IT'S MAY!!!!
