Spring/Summer '19
« on: March 03, 2019, 09:21:23 AM »
MAM and JJA 2019 on tap.


I was waiting for somebody else to do it, but I guess most people are still buried in snow and sub-freezing temperatures.

With the weird Winter, we can only hope for a tranquil Spring without severe storms and a not searing hot Summer.

I was looking at snow depths, many areas average 2 feet and I'm sure plenty of moisture because its compacted down.  Nebraska has one of the lower amounts with most areas well under a foot.

Wish y'all'd close the freezer door up there after you get the steaks out.  I really don't mind if you don't share.

Early Sunday morning, it came a heavy dusting of snow (not freezing rain this time) and once again the Stillwater Emergency Management Director gave another tour of road conditions in Stillwater, mostly on the outskirts.  Here are some of the more interesting points on this very long video.

1.  33.00 - Drive to the airport with a stop to watch the American Eagle get deiced.
2.  44:00  - Gate opened for a better look.
3.  1:37.00  - Pickup speeds past director and soon later slides past red light.
4.  2:15.00 -  Director himself kinda has close call, but salted intersection saves the day.  He proceeds to the interior part of town.
5.  2:18:30 - Director makes sudden turn to check out why two cop cars are stopped in the middle of Main St.

And a good number of out of state and international people were viewing.

Just saw some tornado damage from AL., with fatalities. I'm thinking some possible EF4 stuff by the type structures leveled.
It's been very quiet the past 4-5 years...

It is hard to think spring; our temp this morning was -9.5.  It has warmed up though, now it is -7.2.

Speaking of frozen steaks, how are the herds doing out there this great frozen winter in beef country?

We haven't had any killer blizzards to this date, so other than extreme cold in some areas things are looking decent.

An Enhanced Risk of Severe Thunderstorms is Forecast Today and/or Tonight
Severe thunderstorms capable of tornadoes, large hail, and damaging gusts are possible across portions of the Mid South today through the early evening. A strong tornado is possible from the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers southward into parts of northern Mississippi and northwest Alabama.

Extended periods of subzero temperatures and feet of snow don't bother them?

Tidbit I noticed from the charts.....

4 of the last 7 years ('13, '14, '15 and '18), March has been 'below normal' while '16 and '17 were above.  This year is starting out well below normal and forecasts show that trend continuing with brief warmer periods.

We just don't get the extended periods of subzero temperatures here. ValentineWeather is more likely to get that stuff. Our winter here has been cold, lowest minus 16, with snow; but we have not had any deep snows. Combinations of extreme cold and deep snow are bad for cattle yes. We haven't had that here this  winter. This county is a big cow-calf county. The cold can be tough on newborns.

Appears the worst effects of this next system will pass north and west of us AGAIN, like pretty much every other bad system has in recent months.  I'm not looking for ward to whatever pattern change will bring us our reckoning.

Quote from: NWS Weather Prediction Center
Short Range Forecast Discussion
NWS Weather Prediction Center College Park MD
415 PM EDT Tue Mar 12 2019

Valid 00Z Wed Mar 13 2019 - 00Z Fri Mar 15 2019

...A very active weather pattern in store from the Southwest into the
Plains as a surface low rapidly deepens...

...Heavy snow and strong winds will impact the Rockies and
Central/Northern Plains to the Upper Midwest, with blizzard conditions
likely in some areas...

...Heavy rain, flash flooding, and severe weather are all possible in the
warm sector of the low system...

...Warmer than normal in the East ahead of the cyclone and colder than
normal in the West behind it...

Over the next couple of days, an upper-level low will move across the
Southern Rockies, spinning northeastward through the Central Plains and
then into the Mississippi Valley. At the surface, a low pressure system
will rapidly strengthen in the lee of the Central Rockies Tuesday night
and move slowly into the Central Plains on Wednesday, then tracking
through the Mississippi Valley on Thursday. These features will create a
myriad of weather hazards across the U.S. through Thursday.

Firstly, to the north and west of the surface low, heavy snow is likely to
spread across the Rockies and into the Plains. The San Juan Mountains,
Central Rockies, and parts of the Central to Northern Plains are expecting
12 to 18 inches of snow, with isolated amounts of 2 feet. The strong low
(nearing record low pressure values) will lead to a tight pressure
gradient, which causes high winds. Thus, blizzard conditions are possible
for the Central/Northern High Plains. The heavy snow and visibility near
zero will create extremely dangerous travel conditions, and power outages
are also possible.

South and east of the low, rain and thunderstorms will be the main threat.
On Tuesday evening and night, strong to severe thunderstorms will spread
across eastern New Mexico and into Texas, where there is an Enhanced Risk
of severe weather from the Storm Prediction Center. After the cold front
passes, strong winds are likely in the Southern Plains with the
aforementioned tight pressure gradient on Wednesday. Ahead of the cold
front moving east, thunderstorms are likely across the Lower Mississippi
Valley on Wednesday, and a Slight Risk of severe storms is in place. Heavy
rain and isolated flash flooding are possible as well in the
Southern/Central Plains and into the Middle Mississippi Valley Tuesday,
while on Wednesday, a Slight Risk of flash flooding is in place across
parts of the Lower Mississippi and Tennessee Valleys. Additionally, the
warm air on the east side of the system means precipitation will fall as
rain as far north as the Upper/Middle Mississippi Valley. This area has an
extensive snowpack, so flooding is possible as the rain could cause
snowmelt.

The CONUS will be divided temperature-wise, with much above average
temperatures in the eastern half of the country and below average
temperatures in the east. Highs in the 60s will spread as far north as the
Great Lakes region by Thursday, 15 to 25 degrees above normal. In the
West, highs of 15 to 25 degrees below average are expected for the
Intermountain West Wednesday and into the Northern/Central High Plains on
Thursday. Low temperatures will stay within 5 to 15 degrees below average
in the West.

WFO kinda' wiffed on the wetfall forecast.  They were calling for around an inch.  Storm Totals appear to be closer to 3.

Now I'm wondering if WFO PAH was hit:

"The National Weather Service confirmed a tornado touched down in McCracken County, Kentucky on Thursday, March 14.

According to Kentucky State Police, first responders were notified at around 9:20 a.m. on Thursday of a tornado in West Paducah.

Approximately 5 square miles of western McCracken County were affected by the tornado,  ... "


"Keith Todd with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet said crews are responding to damage in western Kentucky specifically at the Barkley Regional Airport also on US Highway 60 and 62.

Todd said they are receiving reports of outages. The area of Lovelaceville was hit hard, according to Todd."

Happy to see spring arrive. Having my morning coffee and watching the sun come up out the southeast window and the moonset out the southwest window. High 61 today. Perfect.
