  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.

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 region will likely remain dry through Thursday night.

Rain chances increase as we move into Friday and the weekend.

Scattered thunderstorms, this time of the year, can always produce much heavier rain totals.  Questions remain on the potential track of several thunderstorm complexes later this week.

Here is the latest WPC / NOAA rainfall forecast.

This is broad brushed.  It is possible that some areas remain completely dry.  

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.

For some locations, these numbers are way too low.

 

 

This next graphic is the NAM model guidance rainfall forecast through Sunday.

Notice the differences in each of the models.  The differences center around thunderstorm complexes that commonly form during the summer months.  These complexes are tricky, at best, to forecast more than 12 to 24 hours in advance.  Rainfall totals can vary greatly within the complexes.

 

 

This next graphic is the GFS model rainfall through Monday

 

 

This next graphic is the GEM model rainfall total map through Monday

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.

 

Today: No thunderstorm activity anticipated.

Tonight:  Odds favor no storms.

Friday through Friday night: Isolated thunderstorms are possible Friday.  Scattered storms are possible Friday night, especially over southeast Missouri and southern Illinois.  Confidence to storm coverage further south is low.  Monitor updates.

Keep in mind, it is possible many areas remain dry.  If we can pull off an organized MCS (storm complex) or line of storms then perhaps more people will receive some rain.

Some of the storms will produce heavy downpours, frequent lightning, small hail, and gusty winds.  I can’t rule out severe weather.  The greatest time frame of concern should be Sunday and Sunday night.

Saturday into Sunday night:  Scattered storms again possible.  A few storms could produce heavy rain, gusty winds, small hail, and frequent lightning.  I can’t rule out isolated severe thunderstorms.  Monitor updates.

Monday night through next Friday:  Scattered summer-type thunderstorms will be possible.  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.   Monitor updates.  Isolated severe weather risk.

Weather Headlines

  1. Warmer weather.  Muggy conditions.
  2. Increasing chances of scattered showers and thunderstorms.
  3. Typical summer pattern establishing itself.

 

A rather typical summer pattern is establishing itself over our region.

We will have hot days and warm nights through next week.  Daily highs will range from the upper 80’s to lower 90’s.  Overnight lows will hover near 70 degrees.

Heat index values will range from 92 to 98 as we push deeper into the weekend and next week.

Dew points will continue to increase over the coming days.  The dewpoint controls how sticky it feels outside.  Muggy weather is anticipated through most of next week.

We will have dry weather today and tonight.

Thunderstorm chances begin to creep upward as we move into Friday and especially over the weekend.

I am closely monitoring the potential of MCS’s.  MCS’s are thunderstorm complexes.  They are common during the summer months and are actually responsible for most of our summer rainfall.

These complexes can increase rain coverage considerably.

For now, I have capped rain chances in the 30% to 40% range as we move into the weekend and next week.

It is possible that there will be time periods where I will have to increase those numbers.  Until that becomes clear, I will leave it as is.

Here is the future-cast radar from the NAM model guidance.

Timestamp upper left.

Keep in mind, this is simply one model’s idea.  It is extremely difficult to pin down the exact placement of summer thunderstorms.

 

 

It is important to remember that summer storms can occasionally pulse up and produce strong downburst winds that can exceed 50 mph.  Typically, these reports are isolated.

If you have lived here any length of time, you will know that scattered summer thunderstorms can produce gully washers.  Heavy rain totals in a short amount of time.  This can temporarily cause water over easily flooded roadways.

At one time, it appeared we might cool off next week.  That is becoming less likely.

If you have outdoor plans this weekend then be sure and check radars.

I would not cancel plans.  I would keep in mind that there will be scattered storms in the region.  Not an all day rain.  Scattered and progressive.  Keep an eye on radars.

Don’t forget to understand the symptoms of heat-related illnesses.

 

 

Also, don’t forget our outdoor friends.

WeatherBrains Episode 646

We couldn’t get Google Hangouts to function for our guest this week, so this week’s WeatherBrains is a discussion amongst the regulars about what is on their minds.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Subtropical Storm Alberto
  • Extreme heat in the Southwest early in season
  • Negativity and fighting on social media
  • Problematic attempts at forecasting random summertime afternoon storms
  • “First Alert Days” and their place in 2018 broadcast meteorology

You can learn more about those projects by visiting the Shadow Angel Foundation website and the Beau Dodson News website.

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.
