Meteorologists warn citizens of possible storms https://gosic.org/meteorologists-warn-citizens-of-possible-storms/ Fri, 18 Nov 2022 01:00:00 +0000 https://gosic.org/meteorologists-warn-citizens-of-possible-storms/ “Citizens should be wary and wary of possible negativity as it is forecast to blow heavily in Marmara, Aegean and Black Sea and …]]>
ANKARA

Meteorologists have issued a “yellow alert” warning for 39 provinces, mainly in the south-west of the country, warning citizens to be cautious and cautious about possible storms and strong winds.

“Citizens should be wary and wary of possible negativity as it is forecast to blow heavily in Marmara, Aegean and Black Sea and Central Anatolia regions and from time to time in the form of short-term storms in Marmara and Aegean regions,” he said the Turkish State Meteorological Service in its latest weather report.

The bureau also warned of problems from the potential storm, such as falling trees and poles, deflating roofs and disruption to transportation.

Meteorologists urged citizens of western Marmara to beware of negative influences such as local flooding and lightning as local heavy rainfall is expected.

Meanwhile, the Istanbul Municipality also issued a statement warning citizens to beware of strong winds. “The expected storm with a speed of 40-65 kilometers per hour may turn into a strong storm of 70-75 kilometers with short-term movements, as Istanbul and the western regions of our country will be affected by the low-pressure system over the middle Mediterranean Sea.”

“Due to the pressure system that is bringing the warm and rainy weather of the South to our area, the rain is expected to continue into Tuesday [Nov. 22]and temperatures are expected to remain in the 15 to 18 degree Celsius range throughout next week,” it said.

class=”cf”>

It is estimated to be 1 to 3 degrees below seasonal norms between November 21 and 30, he added.

The “yellow alert” indicates a “potentially dangerous situation” in the weather. Although the predicted event is not uncommon, it is used as a warning to exercise caution in activities that may be affected by meteorological conditions.

Snow expected while driving Tuesday morning, weather forecasters say https://gosic.org/snow-expected-while-driving-tuesday-morning-weather-forecasters-say/ Tue, 15 Nov 2022 03:56:00 +0000 https://gosic.org/snow-expected-while-driving-tuesday-morning-weather-forecasters-say/

The first measurable snow of the season is expected to fall in the Chicago area Tuesday morning, making morning commutes dangerous, according to the National Weather Service.

Snowfalls of up to an inch an hour are expected over the city between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m., meteorologists said. Areas west of the city should expect earlier snowfall, starting at 4 a.m

Snow showers are expected to continue through Wednesday morning. According to the weather service, two to five centimeters of snow should accumulate. Measurable snow is defined by at least a tenth of an inch on the ground.

The snow is expected to create slushy conditions on roads, bridges and overpasses, the weather service said. Motorists are advised to allow for extra travel time and to slow down.

The Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation said salt spreaders would be roaming the city’s streets, monitoring conditions on arterial roads like DuSable Lake Shore Drive. The agency will also monitor city bridges and overpasses.

According to the weather service, temperatures are expected to drop in the coming days. Tuesday and Wednesday the maximum temperature should be between 34 and 38 degrees.

However, temperatures are expected to rise to just 32 degrees on Thursday, and Friday should be even colder, with daily highs in the mid-20s.

5 Things to Know About Ryan Hanrahan, NBC CT Meteorologist https://gosic.org/5-things-to-know-about-ryan-hanrahan-nbc-ct-meteorologist/ Fri, 11 Nov 2022 16:15:15 +0000 https://gosic.org/5-things-to-know-about-ryan-hanrahan-nbc-ct-meteorologist/ Watching the storm from his West Hartford studio, Hanrahan wasn’t sure when the biggest storm surge would hit.

“Sandy was probably one of the scariest storms I’ve ever covered,” he said.

As Chief Meteorologist, the Connecticut native continues to be a trusted source of information on Connecticut’s worst natural disasters, which appear weekdays during the 4 p.m., 5 p.m., 6 p.m., and 11 p.m. newscasts and residents on his new blog, Ryan’s Radar bring up to date.

A few weeks ago, he helped put together a 30-minute special on Hurricane Sandy to mark its 10th anniversary, explaining the lessons of the storm that wasn’t a hurricane when it hit Connecticut.

Hanrahan’s weather reports have earned him a New England Emmy Award and the opportunity to overplay two Super Bowl games.

“It’s just exciting to go to work every day and be able to predict the weather,” he said. “I still laugh when someone pays me to do a weather forecast and talk about it on TV.”

As he reflected on his career, Hanrahan was impressed by how much weather forecasting has improved, specifically that it is more accurate and he can predict storms further in advance. However, conveying uncertainty to the public when they don’t have all the answers remains a challenge.

“That keeps the job interesting. But we know our viewers want a lot of precision and a lot of heads-up up front. And we try very hard to give them that,” he said.

Here are five things you should know about NBC CT’s chief meteorologist:

1. His interest in weather dates back to his early childhood

Hanrahan has been fascinated by the weather since his early childhood. Like “a kid before Christmas,” he has a hard time sleeping the night before a snowstorm because of the excitement, he said.

“I can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t want to be a meteorologist,” he said.

While on summer vacation in Cape Cod in 1989 at the age of 5, he recalls seeing scenes of the 1989 Hamden tornado on the news and getting upset that he wasn’t home when the storm hit.

After graduating from Guilford High School, he studied meteorology at Pennsylvania State University and atmospheric science at the State University of New York at Albany. Before joining NBC Connecticut, he did a summer internship at the television network while he was in college.

“It’s very cool to make a living doing something that’s a hobby of yours and something you really love,” he said.

2. He flew into the eye of Hurricane Florence… and almost overslept

In 2018, Hanrahan took a C-130 plane with the crew of the TV show Hurricane Hunters to view the Category 1 hurricane. Hanrahan described the experience as “amazing,” but says he would have missed it if a crew member hadn’t woken him from a deep sleep.

“He’s like, ‘Hey, we’re going in the eye, I know a meteorologist wants to see that,'” he said. “I can sleep through pretty much anything.”

Hanrahan has also hunted tornadoes for his job, including the 2011 tornado that swept over Springfield, Mass.

“I got there shortly after the tornado hit. And just seeing the destruction first hand kind of took my breath away. It was really, really hard to see. Just to see how strong the storm was,” he said.

3. He is an active member of the community

Hanrahan has been involved with the Special Olympics for over a decade, hosting the opening ceremonies of the Summer Games. For two years he was on a unified bowling team with West Hartford and competed in the Special Olympics Holiday Classic.

“Being able to compete with the athletes was really rewarding.”

Alongside the Special Olympics, he visits schools to talk about the science behind the weather and what being a meteorologist entails.

“I think it’s important for people, especially children, to know that there’s a lot to do other than just look at the phone and see what the weather will be like tomorrow,” he said. “It’s really important for me to get it in schools, to talk about what we’re doing and why it’s important.”

4. He had a furry best friend named Doppler

Scrolling through Hanrahan’s social media accounts, the number of pictures of his golden retriever Doppler is striking. Sadly, Doppler passed away in the spring, but he is open to getting another dog in the future.

Hanrahan said he was overwhelmed by the number of viewers who wrote thoughtful and supportive comments following Doppler’s death. He read each comment a few times, he said.

“People wrote the nicest and kindest things,” he said. “We hear a lot about the poignancy on social media and that it can be a challenging place and it certainly is. But people are also very kind and very thoughtful,” he said.

5. He uses his platform to educate people about climate change

When NBC CT began ramping up its climate coverage a decade ago, Hanrahan said the network received negative feedback and skepticism. Now viewers are asking for more of this, and students often ask Hanrahan questions about this phenomenon.

Hanrahan said NBC Universal has increased time and resources to produce more field reports and longer reports on the impacts of climate change in the region. In addition to forecasting temporary weather events, it also communicates long-term impacts of climate change on Connecticut.

The state’s average summer and fall temperatures have increased and winter storms have become more extreme. Weather patterns such as drought and rain have also lengthened, he said.

“It seems like the extremes are a bit more than they used to be. And so we’re just trying to figure out what that means for the future,” he said.

Meteorologist predicts the likelihood Glasgow will snow on Christmas Day https://gosic.org/meteorologist-predicts-the-likelihood-glasgow-will-snow-on-christmas-day/ Tue, 08 Nov 2022 08:34:25 +0000 https://gosic.org/meteorologist-predicts-the-likelihood-glasgow-will-snow-on-christmas-day/

Will Glasgow become a winter wonderland?

Meteorologist Jim Dale has revealed that Glasgow has a 40% chance of experiencing a white winter this year, as forecasts show we could see snow as early as November.

Jim Dale, founder of British Weather Services, also predicts that there is a 30% chance of snowing on Chirtsmas Day in Glasgow and that some parts of the nation including the Highlands are significantly more likely to experience a snowy Christmas than others and Grampian regions in Scotland is expected to see the most snow this year in general.

We could see snow this winter.

While the Highland destinations of Skye, Inverness and Glencoe are among the places most likely to have snow this winter, Cornwall is the least likely, averaging just 7.4 days of snow per year.

The commentary, provided as part of the wettest regions study, also noted that the nation is more likely to experience unpredictable weather this winter due to record-breaking temperatures in June and July – with temperatures exceeding 40C in July .

When asked when else we can expect snow, Jim Dale said, “As the angle of the earth tilts away from the sun, it often bodes well for a concerted drop in temperature, especially when we get most of the north quarter winds.” experience. This is important over the Christmas period because unless we land in a deep winter 2009/10 scenario most snow events will take the form of stop-start showers, with the northern parts of the UK almost always being most at risk.”

However, rising temperatures this summer could mean a wet winter is firmly in the cards, as Jim Dale said: “Every month in the UK so far this year has been warmer than the long-term seasonal average, which in itself is unprecedented.”

The first weekend of November in New England felt more like summer, with near-record-breaking temperatures across the region on Saturday, according to the National Weather Service in Norton.

“It almost feels like early September,” meteorologist Bill Simpson said. “It’s quite warm and muggy but that will start to ease on Sunday.”

In Boston, the record high for Nov. 5 is 79 degrees, which Simpson said reset in 1994. Boston hit about 76 degrees today, which is significantly warmer than the historical average of 66 degrees, he said.

“That’s just three degrees short of the record,” Simpson said.

While no spots broke records in Massachusetts Saturday, there was one in Connecticut, he said.

Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks hit 77 degrees on Saturday, Simpson said. That’s one degree warmer than the old record of 76 degrees set in 1994.

The temperature is likely to stay in the upper 70s across New England on Sunday before the pattern changes and normal weather returns in mid-November.

“Tomorrow there will be a little more cloud cover, so probably around 75 degrees in much of Massachusetts,” Simpson said.

There may be another warm day to look forward to on Monday before classic November weather returns on Tuesday, Election Day across the region.

Then the cold front comes through the region and the weather cools down over the week with temperatures ranging from 72 to 74 degrees across most of Massachusetts.

Dew points are in the 70s this weekend, which is “fairly rare” for November, Simpson said. By next weekend, people can expect a return to slightly cooler weather.

“There could be tropical humidity next weekend so enjoy the warm weather while it lasts,” Simpson said.

Flooding peaks in Echuca and Moama as more rain sweeps across Victoria https://gosic.org/flooding-peaks-in-echuca-and-moama-as-more-rain-sweeps-across-victoria/ Sun, 23 Oct 2022 20:05:47 +0000 https://gosic.org/flooding-peaks-in-echuca-and-moama-as-more-rain-sweeps-across-victoria/

Victoria’s flood crisis is far from over as communities across the state face more rain and slowly receding rivers.

The Bureau of Meteorology said significant rain fell overnight in the north and northwest of the state, with thunderstorms expected today.

Lead Meteorologist Kevin Parkyn said the severe weather warning for heavy rain for the Otways and parts of north Victoria had been lifted, but there were significant falls late Sunday and into Monday.

“We have seen rainfall totals of 10 to 30 millimeters in parts of western and northern Victoria and also locally in Gippsland. Some of those higher totals of 30 millimeters fell at Echuca and Kerang,” he said.

“This is in addition to the major flooding that is already occurring in these locations.”

Forecasters have predicted heavy rain in Gippsland on Tuesday, which could cause rivers to surge in that part of the state.

Mr Parkyn said this month will likely be one of the wettest Octobers in Victoria.

In Echuca and Moama, where flood waters had already exceeded the levels of the 1993 floods, the Murray River was allowed to creep even higher.

Tim Wiebusch, SES chief operations officer, said the river was 94.89 meters above sea level as of 11:30 a.m. Monday.

“There’s still a bit to go, the bureau tells us. It could get up to 95 meters during the day today,” he said.
