Beau Dodson's WeatherTalk Blog

June 14, 2018: Non-subscriber update. Hot and muggy weather.

WeatherTalk monthly operating costs can top $2000.00.  Your $3 subscription helps pay for those costs.  I work for you.

For $3 a month you can receive the following.  You may choose to receive these via your WeatherTalk app or regular text messaging.

  1.  Severe weather app/text alerts from my keyboard to your app/cell phone.  These are hand typed by Beau.   During tornado outbreaks, you will receive numerous app/text messages telling you exactly where the tornado is located.
  2.  Daily forecast app/texts from my computer to your app/cell phone.
  3.  Social media links sent directly to your app/cell phone.  When I update the blog, videos, or Facebook you will receive the link.
  4.  AWARE emails.  These emails keep you well ahead of the storm. They give you several days of lead time before significant weather events.
  5.  Direct access to Beau via text and email.  Your very own personal meteorologist.  I work for you!
  6.  Missouri and Ohio Valley centered video updates
  7.  Long-range weather videos
  8.  Week one, two, three and four temperature and precipitation outlooks.
  9.  Monthly outlooks.
  10.  Your subscription also will help support several local charities.

Example of a recent severe weather alert.  I issued this well before the official tornado warning.  You would have had plenty of time for you and your family to seek shelter.

 

 

 

Your $3 per month also helps support these local charity projects.

 

I encourage subscribers to use the app vs regular text messaging.  We have found text messaging to be delayed during severe weather.  The app typically will receive the messages instantly.  I recommend people have three to four methods of receiving their severe weather information.

Remember, my app and text alerts are hand typed and not computer generated.  You are being given personal attention during significant weather events.

 

 

WWW.WEATHERTALK.COM subscribers, here is my day to day schedule for your weather products.

 

 

 

We offer interactive local city live radars and regional radars.   If a radar does not update then try another one.  If a radar does not appear to be refreshing then hit Ctrl F5.  You may also try restarting your browser.

The chance of thunderstorms through Sunday will be low.  I can not completely rule out an isolated storm today as there are several boundaries in the region.

Otherwise, chances of storms will be 10% or less through Sunday.

Thunderstorm chances return Monday into Wednesday.  Heavy rain possible where storms occur.

Here is the latest WPC / NOAA rainfall forecast through 7 AM Thursday.

We are in a summer pattern.  That means a WIDE range of rainfall totals (even within the same county).

This graphic will not cover those wild swings in rainfall totals that occur from locally heavy thunderstorms.

This map is not showing the potential of thunderstorm complexes next week.  This may need adjusting IF MCS’s occur.

This next graphic is the GFS model rainfall

This is from now through 1 AM Tuesday

We will have to monitor for thunderstorm complexes next week.  If they occur then very heavy rain would likely fall in a few locations.

Model’s are not handling that idea all that well.

The National Weather Service defines a severe thunderstorm as one that produces quarter size hail or larger, 58 mph winds or greater, and/or a  tornado.

 

Thursday through Sunday: Thunderstorm chances are low through Sunday.  Isolated to scattered.

Where storms occur there will be heavy rain, gusty winds, small hail, and frequent cloud to ground lightning.  At this time, organized severe weather appears unlikely.

The risk of severe thunderstorms is low.  Isolated severe storm concerns.

Monday through Friday: Thunderstorm chances are expected to rise next week.  Some of the storms could be intense.  Heavy rain is a concern (where storms occur).  Moisture content of the atmosphere will be high.

We may have to deal with some more MCS’s next week.  MCS’s are thunderstorm complexes.

Weather Headlines

  1. Hot and muggy weather to continue (intensify this week)
  2. Portions of the region will experience somewhat lower dew points today (measure of how sticky it feels outside)
  3. Thunderstorm chances will be less than 10% Thursday through Sunday.
  4. Heat index values of 98 to 106 Thursday into Sunday.
  5. Intense thunderstorms possible next week.  Monitor updates.

 

 

Not much change from yesterday’s update.  Forecast remains the same.

Hot weather will be with us into the weekend.

Daily highs will be in the 90’s and overnight lows in the 70’s. Next index values will range from 98 to 106 degrees

Some storms this afternoon and tonight over southeast Missouri and southwest Illinois (mainly).  Where storms occur they will be heavy.

 

 

 

There is one brief reprieve.

A cold front has pushed into the region.  That means somewhat cooler and drier air for our northeast counties.  That would include portions of southeast Illinois and northwest Kentucky.

Most of us, however, will not feel this drier air and will remain hot and muggy.

You can see how the NAM model shows slightly lower dew points over our northeast counties.  This is 4 PM today.

 

 

Otherwise, a typical summer pattern is underway.

Shower and thunderstorm chances decrease considerably as we move into Thursday through Sunday.  Rain chances will drift below 10%.

Looking ahead to next week.

Very high PWAT values are forecast to push into the region next week.  Thunderstorms that form next week will be prolific rain producers.  We will have to keep a close eye on thunderstorm complexes that form around the edge of a center of high pressure.

These thunderstorm complexes, also called MCS’s, could produce very heavy rain for portions of the region.

Much like this week, some areas will receive inches of rain and some areas will receive very little rain.

It is still a bit early to know details on next weeks thunderstorm chances.

Here is the PWAT value animation for Monday through Wednesday.  This is the GFS model.

The GFS is showing numbers north of two inches.  That is considered extreme for PWAT values.

 

 

 

Senior citizens, young children, and those working outside will have to deal with high heat index values over the coming days.  Especially true Friday into Sunday.

 

 

Do you know the symptoms of heat related illness?

 

 

Also, don’t forget our outdoor friends.

 

 

 

The preliminary July forecast has been updated.  The heat will likely be the big story.

I bring these to you from the BAMwx team.  I pay them to help with videos.  They have a great team of meteorologists.  The Ohio and Missouri Valley videos cover most of our area.  They do not have a specific Tennessee Valley forecast but may add one in the future.

The long-range video is technical.  Over time, you can learn a lot about meteorology from the long range video.  Just keep in mind, it is a bit more technical.
