Beau Dodson's WeatherTalk Blog

March 7, 2018: Colder!

 

No major adjustments in the morning and early afternoon data.

A few flurries possible tonight.  A snow shower possible.  Nothing to worry about.

A few scattered showers are possible Friday across the region.  Rain totals would be less than 0.20″.

Rain chances perk up a bit on Friday night.  Not anticipating heavy rain.  Perhaps 0.10″ to 0.30″.

Questions continue about Saturday and Sunday.  I have showers in the forecast.  Thunderstorms are possible, but that is highly dependent on the track of an area of low pressure.

Confidence is low on the exact track of that system.  Monitor updates.

The EC model guidance continues to keep that system fairly far south.

Here is the Sunday precipitation from the EC guidance.  Notice the placement.

On the other hand, the morning GFS guidance and GEM guidance continues to show a bit more in the way of precipitation.  The GFS is the strongest of heaviest.  It has a deep low passing through our region.

Here is the GFS.  Green is rain.  Dark green and yellow is heavier rain.  Blue is snow.

12 AM Sunday

1 PM Sunday

There is still plenty of time to fine tune the weekend forecast.

Are you missing out? Want to help cover monthly operating costs?

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

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:  Severe weather is not anticipated.

Tomorrow through Saturday:  Severe weather is not anticipated.  Lightning is possible Saturday afternoon into Saturday night.  Monitor updates.

Sunday and Sunday nightLow confidence.  Monitor updates.  I can’t rule out thunderstorms in or near our region.  The track of an area of low pressure will be key to the eventual forecast.

Highlights

Confidence is lower than normal on the Sunday portion of the forecast.  Confidence is high in the forecast today through Thursday night.

What has changed over the last 24 hours?

Weather Hazards.

Tuesday was just a tad windy!

Many weather reporting stations recorded wind gusts of 30 to 45  mph.  There were reports of 50+ mph winds at several private weather reporting stations.

Some of these gusts were exceeded after this graphic was produced.  Winter winds!

Those winds ushered in clouds and rain/snow showers overnight, as well.

Today through Thursday

Yesterday delivered 50’s and even some 60’s to the region.  Today will not be like yesterday.  Coat weather has temporarily returned.  I am sure you walked out the door this morning and quickly realized a cold front has passed through the region.

There were reports of snowflakes last night.  Just a reminder that spring has not arrived.

Many of you know, I love snow.  With that said, I am ready for spring!  A few mild days has given me spring fever.

The weather over the next 48 hours will remain cold.  Highs today and tomorrow will struggle to reach into the 40’s.  Some areas may remain in the upper 30’s on Thursday.

Here are the GFS guidance Wednesday 3 PM temperatures

Here are the GFS guidance Thursday 3 PM temperatures

We will welcome 50’s by Friday and perhaps upper 50’s on Saturday.

The NAM shows a decent temperature gradient Friday.  Confidence on the placement of a warm front is key to the temperature forecast.  The warmer air would be located south of the warm front.

I will need to fine tune that part of the forecast.

Friday high-temperature map from the GFS model guidance.

The one caveat in the forecast will be an increasing chance of showers late Thursday night and Friday.  This will be in response to a warm front that should drape itself across parts of Missouri and Illinois.  As mentioned above, there remain questions on the exact placement of that front.

The NAM shows a few showers across southern Illinois and northwest Kentucky Friday.

Friday 3 PM map.  Green is rain.  Blue is snow.

The placement of the front will be key to the higher rain probabilities.  Let’s keep an eye on it.  I suspect the higher rain probabilities will end over southeast Missouri, southern Illinois, and perhaps northwest Kentucky.

For now, I have kept rain chances at 30% to 40%.  Scattered rain showers.

That then leads to the Friday night into Saturday night forecast.

Another system will move into the region during this time frame.  Shower coverage should increase area-wide.   There also remain questions on the probability numbers for Friday night into Saturday.  The greatest rain probabilities will likely be Friday night.  Medium confidence on that part of the forecast.

A stronger system could arrive late Saturday night into Sunday afternoon.  This system has given forecasters nothing but headaches.

The EC model guidance tracks the area of low pressure well to our south.  So far south that some of the model runs show almost no rain in our region.

Here is the EC guidance.  Mostly south with the widespread rain.

This is Saturday through Sunday night.

The GFS model guidance, on the other hand, has been showing the low-pressure tracking over our region.  This would mean gusty winds, heavy rain, and even strong thunderstorms to the south and southeast of the track of the center of low pressure.

Here is the GFS animation.  You can see the tightly wound area of low pressure passing through Arkansas and Tennessee.  Lot of rain on the GFS.  The rain could change to snow if the GFS model is correct.  Again, low confidence.

Click image to enlarge.

Green is rain.  Yellow is heavier rain.  Blue is snow.

The Canadian GEM model guidance shows a much weaker storm system.  It does have a similar track when compared with the GFS.

Here is the Canadian model guidance.

Let me zoom in on the GFS model guidance.

The GFS is a mature weather system.  Deep low.  Tightly packed isobars (equal line of pressure).  Plenty of rain and thunderstorms.  Colder air wrapping in behind the system.

12 AM Sunday weather map.  The black lines are the isobars.

6 AM Sunday weather map.  The red L is the area of low pressure.  Green is rain.  Yellow is heavy rain.   Blue is snow.

12 PM Sunday weather map.

Needless to say, confidence on the eventual outcome of the system is low.  I am not overly confident on where the low tracks.  There are a lot of moving pieces to this forecast.  Over the next 48 hours, I will have a better idea of the eventual outcome of the system.

The difference centers around the jet stream phasing vs not phasing.

What is phasing?  Basically, it is the merging of the northern and southern jet stream.

This graphic is showing you the 500 mb (18,000 feet) level of the atmosphere.  Those two circles represent the northern jet stream and southern jet stream.  Will they phase/merge?  That is the big question.

If they do phase then where do they phase.

The phase is key to our weather forecast.  A phased system would mean great rain chances.  It would also mean heavier rain totals.

I would not surprise me if the low tracks across portions of Arkansas and then Tennessee.  I am not a betting man and would not bet the farm on the forecast track, yet.

The difference in guidance completely changes the Saturday night into Sunday afternoon/night forecast.  Dry?  Rain?  Heavy rain?  Rain changing to snow?

I will continue to monitor the data and update the forecast.  Monitor updates.

WPC/NOAA rainfall totals based on the low tracking near our region.  This map will need adjusting if the low tracks further north of south.

You can see the heaviest rain over Arkansas into the Tennessee Valley.  Lesser amounts as you move further and further north.

For now, it appears a dry spell is possible next week.  We could use a break from the rain.  We may get it.

I am closely monitoring March 15th through 18th.  A stronger system may impact the Central United States.

CIPS analogs continue to show a signal for severe weather with that event.

What are analogs?

  • Identify existing features on a weather chart that resemble those that occurred in the past.
  • Use previous weather events to guide forecast.
  • Does what happened in the past match what might happen in the future.

This graphic is based on the top five analogs.  It is showing the probability of at least one report of severe weather.

This graphic is showing the probability of 10 or more severe weather reports.  Again, based on the top five analogs.

This graphic is the mean rainfall based on the top five analogs.

The GFS guidance is starting to pick up on this potential event.  This model shows the system centered around the 17th/18th.

What does all of that mean?

It means there could be a  system to monitor around the 15th through 18th.  The analogs show the heavier weather near or south of our local area.

Keep in mind, long-range forecasting is tricky, at best.  It is not an exact science.

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.

If you aren’t a subscriber, please consider becoming one.
