Select Radar Images - Feb 10 Oklahoma, Feb 11 Hawaii, Feb 18 Georgia

Well, it's been rather quiet for the past few days here. It was a beautiful day today ... temperatures approaching 60ºF this afternoon. While I was at work, I glanced outside and saw a tree swaying in the wind. Through the Venetian blinds, the tree appeared to have leaves on it. I was struck with this feeling of it being a summer evening, the winds from collapsed storms that had moved off the mountains, blowing the trees around. It warmed me up inside for a moment. Well, that came to a halt near sunrise when a cold front plowed through from the north. The temperature dropped 20ºF in almost an hour and then it snowed a half inch or so.

Though still only February, the season is almost upon us. We've had a number of severe events over the past month and I felt like sharing some radar, so ... enjoy!
