By The Way...

Once we get this storm out of here completely... We have to talk about the chance for severe weather on Monday night. I'm a little pooped, so I will wait to chat about that! The SPC is already chatting about it though...

Have a good night... I'm ready to go home to sleep!

I'm glad you mentioned it ... I think this is the "farthest out" I've ever actually heard you use the words severe weather. Usually you just stick the thunderstorm graphic up there on that day and at most "We'll have to keep our eye on this one..." What set you off on this one? Higher CAPE that was mostly absent on these last few systems? (That's the biggest difference I've noticed.) Lets see a BUFKIT on this one.

We have had some tornados in the winter time before. Lets hope this system is not bad one. I dont want to batton down the hatches, I dont think I can stand anymore wind damage.

This needs to be watched! Also, Ryan you done a fantastic job on this snow forecast! The NWS, etc over shot the totals in our area, but you did not!!!! Great Job! I used to be addicted to Channel 7 for my weather, but now I trust and rely on YOU at Channel 8 over the air on my NEW digital signal HDTV!!!! Thanks and God Bless!

Great job on the winter weather forecast. I looked at the NWS website but luckily I also TIVO every K8 news program. You guys did great!

I'm a bit perplexed as to why the SPC took the majority of AR out of the Day 4-8 outlook. ??? ... Especially given the current projection on the time of arrival for AR. - We should have a day-3 slight risk tomorrow.
