Any thoughts on the potential ice storm this weekend?

This site seems to predict chaos and 2 inches of ice but I hope it's wrong.

https://www.facebook.com/WxSynopsis/...type=3&theater

Hope it's just a few flurries.

Quote:
I am very concerned when looking at the 12z EURO run from earlier today. Honestly I never seen max values being outputted on the EURO model before for Ice, so this is new to me. To say im concerned is an understatement. For anyone who understands icestorms and just how much can cause widespread impacts, all it takes is just .25 for power outages. If theres .50-.75 you are dealing with prolonged impacts, trees downed and extensive damage to power lines. Between 1.00-1.50 entire power grids become damaged. Widespread damage to trees. Roads impassable for days if not weeks. 1.50-2.00 power grids not only shut down but substations become damaged from the weight of ice accumulations building on transformers and pylons. Hard to imagine ice accumulating over 2inches. Once you get into these extreme values this is what you call a "catastrophic ice storm". Power grids can become damaged and take months to be fully repaired. So there is big time worries for central Oklahoma up to Ohio. We will be monitoring this potential and update when warranted. Anything can change, and if there is one forecast that I hope to god does not verify, this is the one.

This is the truth. It's going to be in the 40s these few days. If there was a deep freeze, I'd be more concerned about freezing rain.

But if the temperature is 36 degrees at 11 AM, that's not going to freeze.

No worries at all, I've got...

3 years experience living in Alaska and driving on those roads

An arctic rated sleeping bag and buttloads of other blankets

Plenty of candles

Fresh batteries in the lantern

Plenty of food

Incredible collection of books

Camp stove fueled by tons of fuel pellets, no shortage there

I can hunker down for several days if necessary

My only hope is that the worst of it misses Arrowhead, please dont gimme an ice storm that kills crowd turnout and turns the game into a slopfest that favors LeVeon Bell

Flying in Saturday afternoon. Do these storms ever shut down the airport?

As long as I can get to MCI, and my Uber driver can get me to Arrowhead, I'll be there!

First of all, 36, is the high. It could take until mid afternoon to get above freezing. Secondly, it certainly can and does snow at temps up to around 37.

I'm attempting to dump my tickets at this point. If I don't sell them and the forecast doesn't get too much worse, I'll still power through it and make the trip, but if I can get my money back, I'm bailing.

I could handle it if it were just a few hours' drive, but it's a 10+ hour trip for me in good weather.

If you sell them make the buyer sing a song about how wonderful the ravens and eagles are.

Just don't 'dump' your tickets to a Squealer fan!

Just remember that today is Monday. And the forecast is for Saturday/Sunday. Could easily see it being much ado about nothing.

I've just got 'em up on Ticketmaster, so I have no control over it. That said, if a Chiefs fan wants them, I can sell them without the insane ticketmaster fees...

Got a second week of winter break essentially and it didn't matter since I was a senior.
