Blizzard Warning AND Severe Thunderstorm WarningFebruary 24th, 2013 at 11:08 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
Click the image to enlarge. You know it’s about time to start thinking about cancelling school when there’s a Severe Thunderstorm Warning (orange area on map) AND a Blizzard Warning AT THE SAME TIME!! This is the 2nd big snowstorm in a week out in the Plains. Like the last, this one will weaken a bit before getting here, but we’ll get a mix of rain and (shovelable) snow when the storm gets here Tuesday PM to Wednesday AM. Storms produced winds of 68 mph in Hobart, OK. Large hail fell in parts of FL and GA, with hail the size of tennis balls and a possible tornado that destroyed a shed in Mathews LA.
