NE Snow Storm Brewing?: AccuWeather.com: Rain across East today, storm could produce wet snow in the mid-Atlantic and New England Tuesday

Weird News: Unusual twister drops in on Wichita, Kansas, area

Snow Wanted: Bring on the snow for Super Bowl XL: Detroit embraces cold weather … Having lived in the Motor City in the late ’90s, I know just how low the mercury can go up there. I’m certainly not wishing anything close to that (and a warmer-than-usual winter seems to suggest it won’t be that bad). As for hoping it will be snow-town next weekend (city planners want this for downtown festivities), sure… it wouldn’t hurt to have enough on the roads to cover those frightening looking potholes. Or have those been fixed since I last visited in early ’05? (Actually, it appears they have) | Resources: National Weather Service 5-day forecast and Detroit weather and live webcam images, including this nice shot from WDIV-TV 4.

Drought-Buster In Texas? No, But Rain Helps: Sunday’s official rainfall total at DFW Airport was .66 inches by 7 p.m., the most in one day since Oct. 31 [Story and more rain totals] … Amazingly, I received more rain here in north Fort Worth than DFW Airport did, 1.11 inches.

On My TV, Radio Last Night: “It Could Happen Tomorrow” aired it’s second episode, this one about an F5 tornado twisting through downtown Dallas. Some good reminders were in the mix, including a warning against parking under highway overpasses and taking shelter in a low-level bathroom. And Art Bell of “Coast To Coast AM” returned to the airwaves for the first time since his wife died of asthma at the age of 47. Last night’s show reminded me how important radio continues to be … and how much sleep Art has made me lose.

Redesign There: CapitalWeather.com has gone live with a redesign, adding many new features that I like!

Redesign Here: Speaking of redesigns, you may have noticed some changes to this site: A new logo (featuring a lightning strike I captured in DFW last summer), new header background, and the site’s navigation moved back to the left column. It’s the largest change to the site since Jan. 2004. I hope you find it an improvement, and promise I’ll leave things alone for a while.

One of the new features, in the right column, is an entry from “One Year Ago”: Today’s is Johnny’s farewell
