Scott Martin: Cool, dry weekend for most of Alabama https://gosic.org/scott-martin-cool-dry-weekend-for-most-of-alabama/ Sat, 19 Nov 2022 14:13:43 +0000 https://gosic.org/scott-martin-cool-dry-weekend-for-most-of-alabama/

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: After a chilly start, clouds will increase throughout the day but all shower activity will be confined to the Gulf Coast. Highs will be in the upper 40’s to the upper 50’s.

Clouds will decrease on Sunday and bright sunshine will return. However, we remain with below average temperatures with highs in the mid 40’s to low 50’s.

NEXT WEEK: A short wave will move towards Alabama on Monday bringing more clouds but we’re trying to stay dry at this point. We will start to see a warming trend with highs in the low 50’s to low 60’s. The first half of Tuesday looks dry, but with the passage of shortwave some showers are possible during the afternoon and into the evening. Highs will be in the 50’s. A few showers seem possible during the first half of Wednesday, which will clear up in the early afternoon. Highs are between the high 50s and low 60s.

Daylight on Thanksgiving Day looks dry, with mostly sunny skies, but clouds will increase from the west as a frontal system approaches. The rain will move into western Alabama at sunset or shortly thereafter and appears to hit the I-59 corridor by midnight. Highs will be in the high 50s to high 60s.

On Friday, the rain will continue to push east as the front slowly moves through Alabama. Buyers must definitely have an umbrella handy. The rain appears to have completely cleared the area by midnight. Afternoon highs are between the low 50s and low 60s.

TROPICS: The tropics are all calm at this point as we near the end of the Atlantic hurricane season. No new tropical or subtropical systems are expected to form within the next five days.

ON THIS DAY IN 1988: Strong thunderstorms developed in the morning, causing storms in east Texas and the lower Mississippi Valley into the early hours of the night. Thunderstorms spawned 21 tornadoes, including 13 in Mississippi. A tornado killed two people and injured 11 others in Nettleton, Mississippi, and another tornado injured eight people in Tuscaloosa. Thunderstorms generated baseball-sized hail in east Texas and northern Louisiana, and Summit, Mississippi, was inundated with 6 inches of rain in four hours.

More than 2,500 lightning bolts struck the North Island during severe thunderstorms https://gosic.org/more-than-2500-lightning-bolts-struck-the-north-island-during-severe-thunderstorms/ Thu, 17 Nov 2022 04:20:38 +0000 https://gosic.org/more-than-2500-lightning-bolts-struck-the-north-island-during-severe-thunderstorms/ MetService National Weather: November 16-18.

More than 2,500 lightning strikes have struck both inland and offshore as MetService issued severe thunderstorm warnings for much of the North Island.

MetService meteorologist Angus Hines said 2,597 lightning strikes have been recorded since noon, mostly in the lower parts of the North Island, such as Wairarapa and inland Manawatu.

There were also isolated strikes in other parts of the country such as Waikato, Marlborough, inland Canterbury and inland Southland.

Waikato, Waitomo, Taumarunui, Taupo, Hawkes Bay, Taihape, Wanganui, Manawatu, Tararua, Wairarapa have severe thunderstorm watches from 1pm to 7pm today.

MetService warns that these storms will become “heavy” in the early evening, producing localized downpours with intensities of 25 to 40mm per hour.

“Rainfall of this intensity can cause surface and flash flooding, especially in low-lying areas such as streams, rivers or narrow valleys, and also lead to slips,” MetService advised.

“Driving conditions will also be dangerous with surface flooding and poor visibility in heavy rain.”

The storm is being caused by a low-pressure system slowly moving across the Tasman Sea, pulling warm air and moisture across land ripe for showers, MetService meteorologist Tui McInnes said.

“To make matters worse, it’s late in the year, which means the sun is high in the sky, sea breezes are strong, and that adds to the ingredients for thunderstorms,” ​​McInnes said.

“So don’t be surprised if you see a few flashes in the sky and hear a roar from above.”

Sticking with the mix of extremes we’ve had over the past week, with scorching temperatures in the south and thunderstorms in the north, Mcinnes said: “If you’re not going to get wet, expect some sun”.

“Given the weather scenario at hand, expect the wet weather to be localized – meaning while one town could get soaked in the afternoon, the next town down the road could remain completely dry,” Mcinnes said.

Later in the evening, Hines said the torrential downpour and thunder are likely to hit tomorrow, with Northland getting the worst of it.

“The most intense rain will start in Northland tomorrow but move south as the day progresses,” Hines said.

“So it looks like it’s going to basically be all over the North Island by the end of the day and then move on to the north and east of the South Island over the weekend.”

In its latest update, the BoM issued a series of warnings.

“Showers and thunderstorms spread across SA today and develop over parts of NT, Qld, NSW and Vic as a low pressure system deepens over southern SA,” it said.

“Severe thunderstorms are likely across much of the NT, SA, Qld and NSW today, with heavy rain, damaging winds and large hail possible during storms.

Severe thunderstorm and severe weather warnings are current for parts of SA, Vic and NSW.

“Rain and thunderstorms will spread across Qld, NSW and Victoria on Sunday with moderate to heavy downpours and widespread severe thunderstorms particularly in inland NSW and south inland Qld with large hail, damaging winds and heavy rain causing to cause flash floods. Some of the most intense storms could produce destructive winds and huge hail.

“Widespread rain over the flooded areas of Vic and NSW is likely to cause river levels to rise again on many rivers by early next week, with more moderate to major flooding possible.

“Flood alerts are up to date for large parts of Vic and NSW.”

Spring tracking will be the wettest on record for South East Australia as forecast for a wet weekend https://gosic.org/spring-tracking-will-be-the-wettest-on-record-for-south-east-australia-as-forecast-for-a-wet-weekend/ Thu, 10 Nov 2022 18:06:02 +0000 https://gosic.org/spring-tracking-will-be-the-wettest-on-record-for-south-east-australia-as-forecast-for-a-wet-weekend/

Spring 2022 is on track to be the wettest on record for South East Australia as another round of heavy rain and flooding arrives this weekend.

In a repeat of the pattern seen several times since August, a band of thunderstorms will first develop across central and southern Australia on Saturday, then expand to the eastern states through Sunday and Monday, bringing heavy rain from north-west Queensland to Tasmania.

Heavy thunderstorms on Thursday and Friday

Before the main event arrives, a storm is already bringing severe weather to the southern states.

On Thursday, violent thunderstorms dropped torrential rain on towns in western Victoria and south-west NSW, including 28mm in Yanac by 6pm.

Thunderstorms on Friday are likely across much of Victoria and NSW, including Canberra and Melbourne.

A weekend of wild thunderstorms and torrential rain

Just as quickly as Friday night’s first band of storms is dissipating, another region of thunder and lightning is set to flare up across central Australia, but this time development will be aided by a low-pressure system in the bay, a replica of the previous flood event in late October.

Saturday’s focus is on South Australia and the Northern Territory, where potentially dangerous storms could form, particularly in the region from Adelaide to Alice Springs.

The storms will spread to western Victoria and far western NSW later on Saturday before engulfing the eastern states on Sunday and early Monday. Heavy rain, gusty winds and hail are possible across a wide band from around Mount Isa to Melbourne.

Major floods for dozens of rivers

Long before the flood from the previous rain event has receded, renewed flood peaks are likely to form after the weekend flood.

An average gradient of 30 to 70 mm should fall along the slopes and ridges of the Great Divide, the source of downstream flood peaks.

In the higher areas around the Alps, totals could exceed 100mm, although the array is helping to create storm clusters that could cause isolated falls to 100mm anywhere but the east coast this weekend.

Of prime importance is the central and southern Murray-Darling Basin where major flooding is possible along numerous rivers including the Gwydir, Castlereagh, Namoi, Macquarie, Lachlan, Murrumbidgee, Ovens, King and Goulburn rivers

This next round of flooding will also send additional water into the Murray River.

The current flow rate along the Murray in South Australia is already exceeding 90 gigalitres per day and is expected to reach 135 gigalitres in December, the highest flow rate since 1975.

Why rainbands form so regularly

The upcoming soak follows the same familiar pattern as previous events this spring:

  • Tropical moisture flows south through Australia due to a sustained La Niña and negative dipole in the Indian Ocean
  • The moisture will interact with a low pressure system and front to create thick clouds and thunderstorms
  • The resulting rain will fall on already wet catchments, leading to significant runoff into already swollen rivers and through full dams
  • Rivers will burst their banks and cause significant flooding

The rain will ease by Tuesday, but there are already signs that the pattern will repeat next weekend.

Thunderstorms on Friday, light snow possible on Friday evening



WARM. WE ARE. We made it into the low seventies this afternoon. CHANGES ARE ON THE WAY. WE CAN LOOK AT THIS HERE IN OUR CURRENT DROUGHT MONITOR. ONE OF THE THINGS WE HAVE NOT CHANGED A LOT OVER THE LAST WEEK IS THAT THE DROUGHT WHEN SOMETHING HAS GONE HEAVY. BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS WE HAVE SOME RAINS THAT WILL BE ON THE WAY IN THE NEXT DAYS. HERE. YOU CAN SEE LOTS OF OUR STATE UNDER MODERATE TO SEVERE DROUGHT. BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT SOME OF THE AREAS SUBJECT TO THE HIGHEST DROUGHT ARE LIKELY TO SEE BENEFICIAL RAIN BY THIS TIME TOMORROW. BUT THE CLOUDS ARE ALREADY FILTERING THIS AFTERNOON. THIS IS A SIGN THAT THE HUMIDITY IS RISING HERE AND IN THE SUBWAY AT THE MOMENT, 73 DEGREES WITH A BRUSHY 30 MPH SOUTHWEST WIND. AND YOU WILL NOTE THAT THE DEW POINT HAS STARTED TO RISE HERE ALSO, INDICATING HUMIDITY IN THE ATMOSPHERE AND RISING NORTH TO COSGROVE COUNTY. I GO THIS AFTERNOON. MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES, TEMPERATURE OF 68 DEGREES WITH 20 MPH SOUTH WINDS. THERE YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE THE FRONT THAT WE ARE OBSERVING HERE. CURRENTLY BACK FROM MINNESOTA TO PARTS OF NEBRASKA, BACK TO THE COLORADO ROCKIES. TEMPERATURES AND THE FORTIES AND THIRTS BEHIND. BUT BEFORE CHECK OUT THESE 70 OF THEM HERE. SIGNIFICANTLY ABOVE AVERAGE FOR THIS SEASON. TEMPERATURES WILL BE 20 TO 25 DEGREES WARMER THAN WHERE THEY SHOULD BE THIS AFTERNOON. THIS IS A VIEW, THE SATELLITE AND RADAR IMAGE. WE HAVE OBSERVED THESE CLOUDS EXPANDING THIS AFTERNOON. WARM AIR FLOW FROM SOUTH ON. BUT HERE’S THE COOLER AIR WITH THE FRONT WORKING THEIR WAY IN FROM THE WEST WILL FINALLY SEE FRONT ARRIVE AS WE GET TOMORROW MORNING. THIS MEANS THAT OUR HIGH TEMPERATURES FOR TOMORROW EARLY IN THE DAY, UPPER LOOKING HERE TILL MIDNIGHT. BUT YOU CAN SEE CLEARLY AS THIS FRONT PROGRESS THAT EASTERN TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUOUSLY RISE INTO THE FORTIES BY TOMORROW EVENING, EVEN THIRTY OUT IN WESTERN AND NORTHWESTERN IOWA. THIS FRONT ALSO BRINGS A VERY GOOD CHANCE OF RAIN. WE WILL SEE SOME ISOLATED TO PATCHY SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS EARLY EARLY AROUND 4 TO 5 TOMORROW BUT THEN AT 6 TO 7 WE WILL SEE A MOVE OF WHITE, FRED TO SLIDE NORTH EAST TO HEAVY RAIN AND EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS DURING THIS TIME FRAME. SO PLAN TOMORROW MORNING VERY WET WITH MORE RAIN WAVES DURING THE DAY. AND WE THINK SOME OF THE HEAVEST RAINS WILL LIKELY FELL OVER OUR SOUTHERN AND SOUTHEASTERN COUNTIES WHERE THIS FRONT BEGINS TO STILL AND THEN TOMORROW NIGHT WILL FINALLY CANCEL AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE NORTH. THE ATMOSPHERE MUCH BEHIND WILL BE COLD ENOUGH TO SUPPORT A POTENTIAL BAND OF SNOWFALL IN OUR WESTERN COUNTIES. NOW WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT A WINTER STORM OR SOMETHING LIKE THIS BUT DON’T BE SURPRISED, ESPECIALLY FROM THE WEST METROPOINTS, IF YOU SEE SOME SNOWFLAKES FLYING AGAIN FRIDAY MORNING, 2 TO 3 INCHES OF RAIN OUTSIDE IN OUR EASTERN COUNTIES, PROBABLY 2 INCHES HERE WITH LIGHTER LOCATIONS OUT WEST. AND THEN THIS IS THE AREA WE WILL BE WATCHING FOR THAT POSSIBLE BAND OF SNOWFALL ON SATURDAY MORNING. CHECK NEXT AGAIN FOR UPDATES. WE UPDATE THIS FORECAST MONITORING SO TIGHTLY. So again, to recap tomorrow, temperatures start in the 60’s but then drop into the 40’s. FIVE MORNING AFTERNOON, WIDESPREAD AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE NOW HEADING NORTH, IF. HERE’S A LOOK AT SATURDAY’S 8-DAY FORECAST. WE MAY HAVE THIS RAIN AND SNOW MIX DURING THE MORNING BUT TEMPERATURES RECOVER VERY QUICKLY IN THE AFTERNOON. A HIGH OF 51 DEGREES SUNDAY AND MONDAY LOOK PRETTY REASONABLE. RISE BACK IN THE MID TO HIGH 50’S AND THEN WARM IT BACK TO ABOVE AVERAGE READINGS NEXT WEEK ANOTHER CHANCE FOR SHOWER

Thunderstorms on Friday, light snow possible on Friday evening

Interactive Radar | Weather AlertsWeather Summary: Our well-publicized precipitation event is on its way to Central Iowa. A powerful upper-level storm system currently in the desert southwest will make its way into the central US later today, providing the large-scale trigger for widespread rain and storms. This system will help push a cold front toward us overnight through Friday morning, causing falling temperatures and a shift in winds. Rain and thunderstorms will develop along and behind the front during the morning hours, moving rapidly northeast and near and arriving in Central Iowa before sunrise. Expect rain waves with potentially heavy rain bands tomorrow afternoon over our southern and southeastern counties where a front will stall. As the upper tier main storm system lifts northeast Friday night into Saturday, sustained rain and even some gusty winds are expected, but temperatures in the atmosphere will cool enough to support a snow band as well. As of now, most model guides indicate possible snowfall generally across our western counties. Currently, due to warm ground temperatures and low temperatures remaining above freezing, accumulations will be very small and most likely limited to a coating. This system will quickly retreat from the region on Saturday, leading us into another significant warm-up as we head into next week with our next cold front on Tuesday and Thursday with intermittent storm chances.

Severe storms are watching Tornado Alley later this week https://gosic.org/severe-storms-are-watching-tornado-alley-later-this-week/ Mon, 31 Oct 2022 20:26:44 +0000 https://gosic.org/severe-storms-are-watching-tornado-alley-later-this-week/

The weather setup is pointing to a classic severe weather scenario for a part of the United States known as Tornado Alley later this week, with storms that could produce large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes.

Although most people think of spring as the time for severe weather, fall is the country’s second severe weather season.

“This is the second peak of their season for tornadoes,” said FOX Weather meteorologist Steve Bender.

Bender said fall severe weather can be more dangerous because shorter days make tornadoes more likely in the dark.

NIGHT TORNADOS ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE DEAD THAN DAY TORNADOS

The facility

Look west to get an idea of ​​what’s to come. The jet stream, a flow of fast-moving air that we can think of as the division between cooler and warmer air, will dip south earlier this week, making for a wet west coast, according to the FOX Forecast Center. The energy generated by this trough or jet stream dip has already dropped 4 to 6 inches of rain over the Washington state mountains.

SKIERS REJOICE AS CALIFORNIA’S SIERRA NEVADA RECEIVES THE FIRST BIG SNOW OF THE SEASON; MORE SNOW IS COMING OVER THE WEST

The extreme pattern will bring the first big snow of the season to the mountains of California’s Sierra Nevada. However, the dip cuts into what is known as a cut-off low. This means that the energy that would normally be driven east by the jet stream will remain over the Four Corners region for a few days.

238 MPH JET STREAM TAKES OFF AN HOUR OF OVERCOUNTRY FLIGHTS TO THE EAST COAST

Before the depression, the atmosphere supplies the area with storm fuel – warm and humid air.

“You get all the moisture from the Gulf pumped through the Lone Star State in Oklahoma and Kansas,” Bender said. “Then the collision course happens, and you’re going to see this wind shear that’s really increasing in West Texas and the Permian Basin.”

Wind shear is one of the ingredients that causes thunderstorms and tornadoes. As the cutoff low slowly moves east, the energy will act on the warm, humid air, keeping the severe weather threat in the forecast for several days.

“So now you have the winds that are picking up, but that’s dry, cooler air that’s dipping underneath the warm, humid air, creating that potential for these thunderstorms and severe weather in west and central Texas all the way to Oklahoma, Kansas and parts of the… Southern Nebraska,” Bender said.

Thursday

The FOX Forecast Center has put Hays and Dodge City in Kansas, Guymon and Woodward in Oklahoma, and Amarillo and Lubbock in Texas in the red Thursday, meaning severe storms are likely.

Friday and early Saturday

Severe storms are slowly pushing east and south on Friday. Storms are likely from Oklahoma City to Del Rio, Texas. FOX Weather’s Future Track charts dangerous late-night and late-night storms in Oklahoma City through Saturday morning. Abilene, San Angelo and Midland in Texas could also be woken up early thanks to storms.

The serious threat on Friday
(FOX Weather)

“It goes on until Saturday morning,” said Bender. “The I-35 corridor, Dallas, Fort Worth, Waco, San Antonio and Austin are all being hammered with it. All the way to Oklahoma City before marching into the ArkLaTex on Saturday afternoon and evening, down toward the Gulf Coast.”

“Some areas like Oklahoma City could face this severe weather threat two days in a row,” he added.

Flash floods possible

With the storms comes the possibility of heavy rains that could cause flash flooding in some parts of the Southern Plains. The FOX Forecast Center is calling for up to 5 inches of rain in a swath stretching across parts of Oklahoma and Kansas. Up to 3 inches of rain is possible across much of Oklahoma and southeastern Kansas.

Flash flooding is also a concern, with some areas seeing 3 to 5 inches of rain.

Selena Gomez Recalls She Was ‘Afraid of Thunderstorms’ entertainment https://gosic.org/selena-gomez-recalls-she-was-afraid-of-thunderstorms-entertainment/ Fri, 28 Oct 2022 23:08:27 +0000 https://gosic.org/selena-gomez-recalls-she-was-afraid-of-thunderstorms-entertainment/

Selena Gomez was “afraid of thunderstorms” as a child.

The 30-year-old pop star grew up in Texas and Selena has revealed that she lived in fear of thunderstorms and tornadoes.

In a clip from her new documentary ‘My Mind and Me’, shared with Vanity Fair magazine, Selena says: “As a kid, I was terrified of thunderstorms. I grew up in Texas and was so afraid that lightning and thunder would mean a tornado was coming.”

Selena finally managed to overcome her fears after reading about thunderstorms and what causes them.

Selena’s mom bought her some books on the subject and it helped allay her concerns.

The brunette beauty explains: “[She] basically saying, “The more you learn about it, the less afraid you’ll be.” And it really helped.”

Selena recently admitted she’s “nervous” about sharing her “trouble” in her new documentary.

The ‘Lose You to Love Me’ hitmaker admitted she has mixed feelings about the project.

She explained, “As nervous as I am to release something so personal, I know in my heart that now is the time.

“I hope that sharing my experiences and struggles will help people feel inspired to share their own stories. And having hope that things can and will get better.”

The documentary delves into the pop star’s mental health journey, and Selena admitted the project “has taken on a life of its own.”

She said: “It was never this thought out plan that we thought we were going to capture these very personal parts of my life. It just grew out of that.”

Selena teamed up with director Alek Keshishian to direct the documentary and she enjoyed the experience of working with Alek, best known for his 1991 Madonna documentary.

Selena said: “He’s very kind and caring and I have complete faith in him. Most of the time I forgot he was even there. Sometimes he just used an iPhone that hid in the corner.”

UK weather: Thunderstorm warning as England and Wales prepare for possible flooding | UK News https://gosic.org/uk-weather-thunderstorm-warning-as-england-and-wales-prepare-for-possible-flooding-uk-news/ Sun, 23 Oct 2022 06:33:45 +0000 https://gosic.org/uk-weather-thunderstorm-warning-as-england-and-wales-prepare-for-possible-flooding-uk-news/

Thunderstorm warnings have been issued for much of the UK as heavy rain means there is a risk of possible flooding.

A yellow weather warning covering much of England and parts of Wales is in effect until 5am Monday.

Forecasters warn the wet weather could lead to flooding, damaging businesses and homes.

A warning on the Met Office’s website said: “There is a small chance that homes and businesses will be flooded quickly and some buildings will be damaged by flooding, lightning, hail or high winds.”

It added there could be travel disruptions, including road closures and train cancellations.

Met Office meteorologist Rebecca Hudson said the risk was mainly confined to central and southern England.

She said the weather warning is almost “triangular” in shape, from East Yorkshire roughly down to the Cardiff area, East Devon, also to London and East Anglia.

Ms Hudson said there will be some “heavier showers” on Sunday evening before drying up on Monday – with some sunny spells even on the maps.

“There will be some heavier showers overnight from Sunday to Monday but these will gradually weaken and then Monday will be much drier with some sunny spells,” she added.

The Met Office shares advice from the RAC and National Highways, advising drivers to slow down during thunderstorms and find alternative routes when roads are flooded.
