Beau Dodson's WeatherTalk Blog

November 25, 2018: Non-subscriber update. Colder weather on the way.

 

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

The $5 will allow you to register up to seven phones!

For $5 a month you can receive the following.  You may choose to receive these via your WeatherTalk app or regular text messaging.

Severe weather app/text alerts from my keyboard to your app/cell phone.  These are hand typed messages from me to you.   During tornado outbreaks, you will receive numerous app/text messages telling you exactly where the tornado is located.

 

  • Daily forecast app/texts from my computer to your app/cell phone.
  • Social media links sent directly to your app/cell phone.  When I update the blog, videos, or Facebook you will receive the link.
  • AWARE emails.  These emails keep you well ahead of the storm. They give you several days of lead time before significant weather events.
  • Direct access to Beau via text and email.  Your very own personal meteorologist.  I work for you!
  • Missouri and Ohio Valley centered video updates
  • Long-range weather videos
  • Week one, two, three and four temperature and precipitation outlooks.
    Monthly outlooks.
  • Your subscription also will help support several local charities.

Typical progression on a severe weather day for subscribers.

 

 

 

 

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 my personal attention during significant weather events.

 

 

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

 

These are bonus videos and maps for subscribers.  I bring these to you from the BAMwx team. I pay them to help with videos.

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.

Today through next Saturday:  I am not anticipating any accumulating snow through Saturday.

A snow flurry or snow shower will be possible Sunday night and Monday morning.  This would mainly be over southeast Illinois and northwest Kentucky.  No impacts anticipated.

 

 

The Weather Observatory will be holding two open houses for adults and children.  Weather permitting, the open house will be Saturday, December 1st.

 

 

Class of 1988 (Massac County High School).  I will be having a special open house for you on Friday, November 30th (the night before the other open house)

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the WPC/NOAA rainfall outlook

 

A light rain event is possible today and tonight.  Rain totals from 0.00″ to 0.20″.  Many areas may remain dry.

I am monitoring a weak fast moving clipper for the middle of the week.

A heavier rain event is possible Friday or Saturday.  I can’t rule out thunderstorms.  That will depend on the track of the area of low pressure.

Here are the forecasted rain totals through tomorrow.  Again, light event.

 

 

Add in the late week event.  Heavier totals possible.  This is both today’s rain coupled with the Friday/Saturday event.

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 through Friday afternoon:  No severe thunderstorms.

Friday night through Saturday night:  Monitor updates.  An incoming storm system could bring thunderstorms to the region.  I can’t rule out intense storms, but it is a bit early for certainties.

  1.  Colder temperatures behind the Midwest blizzard
  2.  A cool week of weather ahead.
  3.  A stronger system may bring showers and thunderstorms to the region on Friday and Saturday.
  4.  Strong thunderstorm risk?

 

A major blizzard is impacting areas to our north and northwest.  Widespread blizzard conditions are likely from Kansas, Iowa, northern Missouri, southern Wisconsin, and northern Illinois.  Anyone with travel plans into the winter storm/blizzard area should reconsider those plans.

Winds will combine with heavy snow to produce near white-out conditions.  This is a major early winter storm event.  A widespread 4 to 8-inch snow event is likely with pockets of 8 to 12 inches.

This system will not bring significant winter weather to our region.  That is the good news.  It will, however, bring cold temperatures.

We will have some scattered showers today.  Windy conditions will develop as the area of low-pressure deepens.

A deepening low-pressure center will cause tightly packed isobars.  Isobars are equal lines of pressure.  Winds will pick up with speeds above 35 mph possible by this afternoon and evening.

Gusty winds will continue into tonight with falling temperatures.

Temperatures tonight will fall into the 20’s.  Temperatures Tuesday night will drop into the lower 20’s.   Wind chills both nights will fall into the teens.

Monday is going to feel like winter with highs in the 30’s.  Wind chills Monday will range from 15 to 25 degrees.  Brrr.

Tuesday will also be cold with highs only in the 30’s.  These are well below the seasonal norms.  Normally we would be in the 50’s during the afternoon hours.

A fast moving weak system will push through the region Thursday and Thursday night.  A few clouds and sprinkles possible with it.

A much larger system may bring widespread rain and thunderstorms to the region by Friday or Saturday.  Right now, it appears Saturday may end up being the wet and stormy day.

The intensity of the low-pressure center is still in question.  Many models do show instability in the region and that could mean thunderstorms.

I am closely monitoring the trends in the guidance to see if a few strong storms may occur.

 

Here is what the EC is showing.  EC is a model.

Click images on this page to enlarge them.

The colors represent rain intensity.  These are six hour rate totals.

The low is centered over eastern Kansas.  You can see the black lines.  Those are equals line of barometric pressure (isobars).

The EC would bring a gusty band of showers and thunderstorms through the region Saturday afternoon.

This will need to be monitored.

I bring these to you from the BAMwx team. They are excellent long-rsix-hourecasters.

Remember, long-range outlooks are a bit of skill, understanding weather patterns, and luck combined. It is not an exact science.

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.
