2010 NSWW Travelers Forecast
NSWW Weather Forecast by Jared Guyer, NWS Storm Prediction Center
We are looking forward to seeing everyone in Norman this week for the National Severe Weather Workshop! It appears this conference in Norman will offer a relatively “quiet” weather pattern as compared to some past years. With Wednesday a likely travel day for most attendees, the middle part of the country will generally be beneath an upper ridge or flat westerly upper flow with surface high pressure prevalent. This same general pattern should hold through the end of the conference, with seemingly limited potential for significant weather impacts for most travelers. With that said, it does appear that rain/higher elevation snow will be probable across portions of the Western U.S. to Rockies, and eventually portions of the northern Plains, in association with an upper trough expected to move inland across the Western U.S. beginning Wednesday. As far as Norman itself, seasonal temperatures with highs in the 50s are generally expected, with some chance for mainly light rain by around Friday and Saturday.
Here is the latest NWS forecast for Norman.

We will be offering 5-10 minute weather briefings each day of the conference around the mid-morning breaks.
Safe travels to and from the conference!
