Beau Dodson's WeatherTalk Blog

Monday, June 11, 2018: Non-subscriber update. Hot and muggy weather.

WeatherTalk monthly operating costs can top $2000.00.  Your $5 subscription helps pay for those costs.  I work for you.

For $5 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.

Your subscription also helps support these local charities and 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.

Another week of hot and muggy conditions for the region.

We will have daily chances of isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms.

Highest rain chances today will be along and north/northeast/and east of this line.

 

 

A cold front will push towards the region Monday night into Tuesday night.  This boundary could mean increasing coverage of showers and thunderstorms.  Some of the rain will be heavy.

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. 

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 graphic takes us from now through next Monday.

 

 

This next graphic is the NAM model guidance rainfall forecast through 1 AM Thursday.

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.

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.

 

Monday:  Isolated 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.  Isolated severe weather possible.

Monday night through Tuesday night: Thunderstorms are likely along an incoming cold front.  Some of the storms could become severe with high winds, hail, frequent lightning, and torrential downpours.  Monitor updates.

Wednesday through Sunday:  Widely 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. Muggy weather
  2. Cold front approaches the region tonight into Tuesday night
  3. The front could help focus thunderstorm activity (greater coverage)
  4. Daily chances for isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms into the weekend

 

Weather models have been useless over the last few days.  They can not handle a summer pattern like the one we are in.  The problem is placement of thunderstorms.  There is lower than normal confidence in the overall forecast through Friday.

We did have thunderstorm activity over the weekend.  Coverage on Saturday was much greater than Sunday.  Most of the area remained dry Sunday.

Portions of Mississippi County, Missouri, and Ballard County, Kentucky, received very heavy rain totals in a short amount of time.  There were also trees down in Wickliffe, Kentucky.

Check out this zoomed in radar estimated rain totals map.  Some areas of the county barely had enough rain to wet the ground.  Other areas were experiencing flooding.

This map underestimated some of the totals.  There were reports of 4.5″ in Mississippi County, Missouri!

 

 

On Sunday, there was thunderstorm activity across northern parts of southeast Illinois into northwest Kentucky and then southward in the Pennyrile area.  Heavy thunderstorms struck these areas.  Hail and damaging winds were reported from some of the storms.

Daviess County, Kentucky, reported several trees down and barns damaged.  This was mainly across the southeast portion of the county.

There were reports of nearly six inches of rain over portions of southeast Illinois since Friday.

Check out some of the rain totals from Sunday.  Very heavy rain in portions of the region.  Click to enlarge.

 

 

The big story this week will be the continued heat and muggy conditions.  This is also known as summer!

Daily highs will range from 88 to 94 degrees.  Heat index values during the afternoon hours will jump into the 95 to 100 degree range.  Possibly higher in some locations.

This will make for uncomfortable outdoor activities between 11 am and 5 pm.  Keep that in mind.

We will have daily thunderstorm chances.  Typical summer storms.  Where storms occur there could be gusty winds, hail, lightning, and torrential downpours.

A cold front will shift into the region late Monday night into Wednesday.  This could cause an increase in thunderstorm coverage.  Some of the storms could be severe.  Monitor updates.

Heavy rain is a concern over the coming days.  Some locations could easily exceed two inches of rain.  Meanwhile, other areas may remain dry.  Again, fairly typical pattern for this time of the year.

Avoid flooded roadways.  Summer storms can occasionally cause flash flooding in localized areas.

 

Senior citizens will be dealing with heat and humidity over the coming days.  Remember to check on them.

 

 

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.

  • 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

Did you know that a portion of your monthly subscription helps support local charity projects?

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.
