I admire the attention you guys are affording a marginal event two weeks from now, but we all know it'll end up snowing in Tulsa and 50F here on Christmas.

It's winter, it gets dark at 6, and March Madness is a long way off.  What else we gonna do?  ;D

Yes sir no doubt, sleet slows down driving but freezing rain is much more of a head ache with power outages and downed trees. We have had a few good sleet storms here over the last several years. 2004 before Christmas was about 5-6 inches of sleet here. The one in march a few years back was about 7-8 inches of sleet, both times several cold days kept it around for quite a while.  ::popcorn:: ::cold:: ::snowman::

Wow...that really was a sleetfest.  It probably took awhile for that much ice to melt.

As far as freezing rain goes--I'd rather torch at 60 degrees with plain rain.  I enjoy my trees, and freezing rain is bad news for trees.  I've seen it take down a whole forest of pines and even tear up hardwoods.  Sleet, like Bumbles, just bounce.   ;)

If I can't get snow, I'll gladly take inches and inches of sleet over rain or rain that freezes on impact.   ;)

Yeah but the staying power of sleet is something else.

Much more dense than snow--it's like billions of tiny ice cubes on the ground.  And just try to drive on those ball bearings.  Nature's perfect weapon to slow us down.

I think the terrain west of the plateau is prime for stalling low level CAA in certain situations which then lends itself to more sleet events. Usually a Southwest to northeast gradient sets up and the precipitation changes form as the cold air deepens.

We had about 3 inches of sleet and a inch of snow before Christmas in 2004 that was on the ground for more than a week. Christmas Day was incredibly slippery around here.
know   . I had a wreck that day of the sleet storm .... cold week it was
