Alright, let me start by introducing myself. I’m Pat Rosborough and I am the Good Day Oregon weather producer here at Fox 12. These mornings can get REEEEEEEALY slow so I think I’ll be making some posts to add to the excitement here. A really active last 24 hours, finally some excitement with the wind we briefly had last night here and at the coast. Peak wind gusts at the coast hit 69 miles per hour in Cape Foulweather and Garibaldi.
Snow slammed the east coast this week, putting many cities into the record total snowfall category. This little tid bit came into the newsroom this morning: A Oklahoma forecaster at the NOAA National Severe Storms Lab is predicting that there will be snow in all 50 states at once this week. A forecasted snowstorm that is already dumping snow in parts of Texas is making its way east and covering the southeastern states, including parts of the Florida Panhandle which are under a Winter Storm Warning. Remember the hard freeze they had in the middle of December?? I bet all those folks who move down to Florida during the harsh northeast winter are a bit confused.
It is not actually known if the phenomena of snow in all 50 states at once has occurred or not, but nonetheless it is worth mentioning.
