March 17, 2018: Rain chances. Another frost/freeze next week.

 

The rain today was spotty, at best.  A bit less coverage than anticipated.  I had to update the forecast earlier this afternoon and lower the probabilities.

There have been showers, but nothing overly impressive

A warm front is situated to our south.  This warm front will move north and northeast tonight.  Warm and moist air is located south of the warm front.

Dew points north of the front are in the 20’s!  Dew points south of the front are in the 50’s.

Here is the 4 PM dew point map.  Notice the pooling of higher dew points to our south.

Want to learn more about dew points?  Click here.

For a larger view you can click the images.

 

 

Now, here are ait temperatures.  Notice how warm it is south of the warm front.  Nice temperature gradient even across our region.

 

 

We may have a few thunderstorms tonight.  Some hail can’t be ruled out.  Gusty winds, as well.  The severe weather risk is minimal, at best.

Here is the Hrrr future-cast radar.  The timestamp is located in the upper left portion of the graphic.

 

 

There are some concerns about thunderstorms Monday and Monday night.  Some severe weather can’t be ruled out if the low passes to our north.  Monitor updates.

 

 

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.

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 and tonight:  Widespread severe weather is unlikely.  A couple of storms could produce gusty winds and hail.

Saturday through Sunday:  Saturday will likely end up mostly dry.  Severe weather is not anticipated Saturday through Sunday afternoon.

Sunday night through Monday night:

Some thunderstorms are possible Sunday night into Monday night.  Monitor updates.

WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS

  1.  Clouds today with some showers and thunderstorms spreading into the region from the west and southwest.
  2.  Rain chances tonight.  Perhaps a thunderstorm.  Isolated strong storm possible.
  3.  Saturday and Sunday will be mostly dry  (outside of isolated showers).
  4.  Rain chances ramp up Sunday night into Monday night.
  5. In case you missed it!  Here is the Facebook thread with some exciting new announcements concerning Weather Talk.  Click here to read that.

Highlights

What has changed over the last 24 hours?

Weather Hazards.

.

Do you have a young person interested in weather?  I am available to talk to them about what class courses they should be taking.  I can answer their questions about the field of broadcast meteorology, behind the scenes forecasting,  National Weather Service jobs, and owning their own weather business.

 

 

The one, two, three, and four-week weather outlooks have been updated (see further down in this blog update).

We have clouds greeting us today.  Rain chances are on the increase.

Want to view GOES 16?  Awesome satellite.  Use the slider feature.  Be sure and hit refresh.

GOES 16 link.

There will be a wide range of temperatures across the region over the next few days.  We can thank a warm front for that.

Temperatures will be cooler north of the front vs south.

This boundary will also be the focus of rain and thunderstorm chances.

Instability is weak.  Wind fields are strong.  Dew points are marginal.  Heating will be marginal.  There will be lift.

All of those ingredients could mean a few strong thunderstorms.  If instability were higher then we would have more concerns.  It isn’t.  This is a marginal, at best, set up for a few strong thunderstorms.

The Storm Prediction Center has removed the severe weather risk from our area.   They dramatically changed their outlook over the last twelve hours.

They do have us in the general thunderstorm region.  That means lightning is possible.  The dark green is the marginal (lowest) risk level for severe thunderstorms.

 

 

The good news is that Saturday through Sunday afternoon should be mostly dry.  Temperatures will remain cool north of the warm front and even chilly Saturday night.

There will be small <20% shower chances during this time frame.  Plan on mostly dry weather.  I would not cancel any outdoor plans.

We will need to monitor Saturday morning (early) for any remaining showers exiting.

Rain chances ramp back up Sunday night into at least Monday night.

Some of the guidance is showing light snow chances returning Tuesday and Tuesday night.  Low confidence on this happening (see the GFS future-cast radar animation).  What is for certain will be colder temperatures next week with a chance of frost and/or freeze conditions.

Frost and/or freeze is possible again next week.  I am watching Tuesday night and Wednesday night for the highest risk of frost and/or freezing conditions.

Rain totals today through tonight will likely range from 0.25″ to 0.50″.

 

 

 

Rain totals from today through next Tuesday will likely range from 0.50″ to 1.00″.

 

 

Let’s look at a few graphics.

This first graphic is the short-term future-cast radar.  How radar might look.  This is a models opinion.  It won’t be exact.  This will give you a general idea.  Some showers and perhaps thunderstorms will be possible today into early tomorrow morning.

The timestamp is located in the upper left-hand portion of the animation image.

Hrrr model

Green is rain.  Dark green and yellow would be heavier rain.  Blue would be snow.  Pink/red would be ice or a wintry mix.

 

 

 

 

NAM 3K guidance (another model)

Green is rain.  Dark green and yellow would be heavier rain.  Blue would be snow.  Pink/red would be ice or a wintry mix.

 

 

 

 

GFS model depiction of the Sunday night into Tuesday precipitation event.

Green is rain.  Dark green and yellow would be heavier rain.  Blue would be snow.  Pink/red would be ice or a wintry mix.

Notice the GFS shows snow showers in our region.  Not sure that happens but I will be monitoring trends in the guidance.  Again, either way, it means cold weather returns.

 

 

 

We are looking at colder temperatures, again next week.  We can’t shake the cold.  Here is the GFS model temperature animation.

Notice today into the weekend that there are large temperature differences from southwest to northeast.  That is because of the frontal boundaries.

The timestamp can be viewed in the upper left of the graphic animation.

ANNOUNCEMENT!

 

I am working on a few new items for us.

As always, I am grateful for all of you and the support you bring to my passion.

There was never a plan.

All of this started with a severe weather email list of ten or twenty people after the killer 2003 tornadoes. That grew to what you see today.

From that tornado, the Shadow Angel Foundation was born. We delivered hundreds of teddy bears to Pulaski, Massac, and Pope Counties. The “storm” bears went to Head Start, Kindergarten, and first graders. Included with the bears was a package of information for parents on how to talk to their child about tornadoes and severe weather.

We then worked with the Metropolis Planet on producing the Terror in the Night tornado book. The book was filled with personal accounts of that horrible night. Many people said the book helped bring closure.

Since then we have delivered thousands of teddy bears to Child Watch and Pasac. The counselors use the teddy bears to help the children feel safe.

Soon after that, the late Kent King (radio DJ and emergency manager) asked me to cover weather for McCracken County OEM/DES. I was COM 10 on the scanner feeds.

Ed Duff, with McCracken County Rescue, now utilizes my services during severe weather events along with two other local counties. They receive one on one attention during events.

That led me to Sue Henry with the American Red Cross where I was able to help during Hurricane Katrina and Rita. An experience that changed my life.

Around that time social media exploded onto the scene. My personal Facebook page quickly filled up with 5000 people. The limit Facebook allows for personal pages.

Facebook then started pages. I was able to make a page just for weather.

It was soon after that that I bought a portion of my family farm back. We built my house and the Weather Observatory.

Jason Darnall helped put together an amazing weather center. Many hours of work.

Then the Paducah Sun then asked me to do weather for them.

That led to the amazing team at Innovations Branding House. They produced my Weather Observatory website.

About four years ago there was a falling out with some local meteorologists. It bothered me so much that I almost quit weather.

The Paducah Sun even ran a story that I was taking a break from weather. I was taking a year off.

Several other local meteorologists then came to me and told me to brush it off. They encouraged me to start a weather business. They explained what I could bring to the local weather table.

Soon after that, as fate would have it, Preston Ursini and the Fire Horn team asked me to think about producing text messages during severe weather. That led to Weather Talk. That then led to the Weather Talk app.

Had it not been for that low point, I don’t think Weather Talk would have ever come to be. Life is funny like that. Something bad turned into something good.

I often times tell people that I have the best Facebook friends, enthusiasts, and followers. It is rare that someone complains on the weather page.

Some of you have basically become like family to me. When severe weather strikes it becomes personal to both you and me.

Here is what we are going to bring you.

1. We are coming out with a major app update for subscribers. We plan on having radar in the app, as well as your usual app/text messages to the daily blog, video, and Facebook updates.

2. We are completely revamping the WeatherTalk website. Preston Ursini, from The Fire Horn, is working alongside Innovations Branding House to complete this task. The Fire Horn is who I partner with to make all of this work.

3. I am going to try and stick to a daily schedule. That way everyone knows when to expect an update. See the comment section.

4. Many of you have asked me to do Facebook Live video updates during winter storms and severe weather outbreaks. I have spent the last week learning how to use OBS studio software. This software will allow me to deliver you Facebook Live events. You will get your wish.

5. We are moving towards a flat subscription fee of $5 a month. Everyone that is paying $3 a month will be grandfathered in. If you want to voluntarily upgrade to the $5 plan then that would be great. We will roll this out when the new website is finished.

Right now we have a $3, $5, and $10 plan. The only difference is how many cell phone numbers you can add.

With the $5 a month plan we will let everyone have up to seven phone numbers. That should cover your family members. Sound good?

6. I have streamlined the digital media blog. That would be the talk.weathertalk.com site. You will find that is has been organized.

Remember, I work for you. I don’t work for television or radio. I am your employee.

You have a personal meteorologist. And, as everyone knows, I put my heart and soul into this.

Subscribers will receive the following:

You may subscribe at www.beaudodsonweather.com

1. The app/text updates during tornado outbreaks and all other weather events.
2. Rapid-fire tornado app/text messages. I send out numerous updates as I track the tornado. Some of you can testify to these rapid-fire tornado messages.
3. Daily weather forecast sent to your app/text.
4. Link sent to the app/text to the daily blog and Facebook updates on non-severe weather days. Instead of waiting around for me to post a new Facebook thread you can receive it in your app/text.
5. Link sent to the app/text to the daily blog and Facebook updates on severe weather or winter storm days.
6. We are updating the weather map page on the website. That page will have thousands of daily weather maps for you to access.
7. I answer every email you send. I try to answer every private message you send to me.
8. We run three hour live feeds during severe weather where we attempt to answer as many questions as possible. Same for winter storms.
9. You receive access to special short and long-range video updates from the Bamwx team (who help me with daily videos).
10. You receive access to special short, long-range, and seasonal temperature and precipitation outlooks.
11. Your subscription fee helps six local charities (see comment section for more information).

Normal monthly out of pocket operating costs (see comment section) are around $2000.00.

The service I provide is unique. I don’t believe there is anything else like it in the country. Not for this price and not for the volume of information you receive.

We hope to have the new app and website finished soon. Watch for announcements.

 

 

New schedule

 

Example of some of my rapid-fire tornado app/text messages.

Make sure you have app/text notification ONE turned on.  This one is called WeatherOne.  You can make sure that is on by signing into your www.weathertalk.com account and clicking the personal notification settings tab.  Make sure WeatherOne is on (green).  Green is on.  Red is off.

 

 


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 local city view radars also have clickable warnings.

During the winter months, you can track snow and ice by clicking the winterize button on the local city view interactive radars.

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.
