Welcome to Chase Season 2013!

We have just crossed the threshold into what I consider the start of chase season 2013. While Oklahoma and the rest of the Plains remain the in the grip of winter for the near future, the ensemble from the GFS and ECMWF are hinting at a significant pattern shift that could bring more spring-like weather to the southern Plains heading into mid-March. Hopefully this occurs before I head off on spring break but either way it'll be nice to see some decent moisture return for the first time in a long time if this pans out. I'm extremely excited for the start of chase season and here's hoping we get some good setups heading into the early part of the season!
