Is anyone Going chasing this weekend? Friday-Saturday look decent on some of the models, Was thinking around Black river Falls, but may be tough terrain...
Welcome to 2018 where 0.01" of rain is considered heavy. Good thing heavy rain reports are not used for anything meaningful.
Truck near Pine River, WI
Turned off warning email updates again because we are still dealing with several issues.
In case you were wondering how cold it was in April relative to average.
Having an issue with the warnings feed today causing warnings to end prematurely. Won't be able to fix until after the event.
Waiting on the 12Z run to make final forecast
Okay, chances are I have no clue what I am talking about and that I am wrong about this since I am a total noob at making my own forecasts, but when looking at GOES 16 imagery and the surface analysis this is what I interpreted.
Basically, there is an an area of slight wind shear along and just east of the boundary between the moist air stream from the Pacific and a dry slot that I think might provide just enough instability to create a band of isolated CBs ahead of the boundary embedded in tonight's rainfall leading to "a few rumbles of thunder" in parts of the area during the rain event.
Looks like NC Wisconsin is going to get the most rainfall
Quiet weather has given me the opportunity to take break. Much has changed in the last three weeks. Getting ready for storm chasing season.
Snow ratios look okay, except eastern Wisconsin. SLRs above 20:1 were not what I expected. Really interesting. Overage somewhat balanced out by lower QPF.
Life events have made it hard to share info this week. Hope to be back on schedule soon!
Watching a winter storm for Mar 1-2 that looks to impact either central or southern Wisconsin. Plenty of uncertainty.
Winter Storm Warning issued. Better early than never I guess! Storm arrives after 6PM Saturday night.
SNOW DEPTH - 14-25" of snow on the ground in northern Wisconsin. You will add to that snow-pack this weekend with the third winter storm in the last seven days. Meanwhile southern Wisconsin has forgotten what snow looks like.
