Working hard the last week or so on changes & new additions here on wisconsinwx. Already hinted some of those in recent videos. Probably another 5 days of work left. Stay tuned for a large blog post covering all that PLUS my plans for the future.

Wow. Models NEVER showed the heavy snow band THAT far north. Surprising. Just when you think you've got it all figured out.
Heavy snow band pushed further north than expected overnight bringing 3-6"+ as far north as Fond du Lac County. Sharp cut off in snow amts just north of that. Snow totals underperforming near and south of the WI/IL border. Still snowing in southern WI.

NOAA outage. Once the system comes back up (hopefully today) you'll see advisory alerts popping up in Southern WI & N IL. Sorry for any inconvenience!
Experiencing an issue with the NWS warning feed atm. Receiving no information from the EAS. Reaching out to FEMA for more information.

Light snow will redevelop tonight. Another inch or two by Saturday AM.
Large lull in the storm this morning. Plenty of dry air cycling through.
In the coming weeks I will disable SMS/TEXT messaging services as the funds run dry. Email still works. Not destroying SMS from website code and may bring it back in the future because it was a great thing. Thanks.
Simplification. In the past I was building everything to expand. Now I want to simplify to make it fun. Reduce it down to what we're best at and try a few new things. It will take some time but feels like the right direction.  
No updates recently with quiet weather. I asked my wife to hide the power cord to the computer. I love weather but other areas of my life need attention right now. Talk to you soon!
So many issues. Too much dry air entering the western side of the system in between main forcing mechanisms. Contributing to earlier end time for heaviest snow, though light snow is expected overnight. Heaviest snows also stayed in northeast IA/NW IL, blocked moisture transport north? Correct magnitude...wrong location. Still snowing around the state. Mixing with sleet along the WI/IL border.

Plenty of dry air pushing into western Wisconsin. Heaviest snows falling just south of 7-10" zone. It might end up alright.
I've had this on my mind lately. The actual quote is: “I was born for the storm, and a calm does not suit me.” - Andrew Jackson. Free to share. 
The joy of being able to share my weather predictions with you. My contribution to society. My way of helping others. Good vibes good times.
Looks like fun! Most of Wisconsin under an advisory or warning for snow tomorrow night. Sorry Rhinelander!

short range models have very narrow but heavy band of snow today. Too aggressive in the SW? Not much outside of that band.
Watching FRI JAN 1 for yet another system. Medium range models now suggest this system is likely to impact WI HOWEVER consistency is very poor. Confidence is low.
Watching a possible storm for TUE/WED next week. It's persisted on many runs now GFS & EC and could be significant if it actually happens. Still several days away and much could change. I'll take a closer look after Christmas. Happy holidays!

Calm before the storm. Snow will develop quickly today across eastern MN/NW WI.
THU AM - Wind chills expected to reach -10 to -20F range in Wisconsin on Thursday morning (colder NW). -20 to -30F in Minnesota.
Quiet weather at the moment. No update this week. Looking forward to next week.

Western edge of the winter storm cloud deck. Neat cloud and clearing that follows.
winter storm is ending, light snow for a couple more hours in the far east. Storm total snowfall on the high end of forecast...9" report near Middleton.
Snow reports showing well this morning with a couple 5" amts from Dubuque to Madison area. More snow will fall today in Southern WI with the heaviest accums in the east. The best snow bands are slipping sligjtly further north this AM....as far as Green Bay and up the lake Michigan shoreline where the NWS extended the Advisory. Snow ends before 6PM tonight.
Working on a project. Playing around with April 10, 2011 using archived radar images and the new storm events database. 
WEBSITE UPDATE 11.25.2020 - Monthly forecasts are back. Prepared a winter forecast for Dec-Feb by month. Only doing them for fun. NOTE - will push update tomorrow to allow everyone to view these forecasts. 
Improved home page appearance and refreshed site SSL on update this AM. Looking forward to the day I can get back to this. Take care!
Another beauty!
Pushed a small website fix/upgrade this morning...

1. Had aprox 40 members become inactive due to expiration of payment plans in last month. All were reactivated and will get notifications again. Removed code that caused the issue.
2. Maps transitioned to winter products.
3. Fixed classic storm report tool where report magnitude was always blank. I like this tool and would like to bring it back. 

Hoping to return to development soon. Feeling good.

SUN - MON (10/25-26) | EC precipitation simulation still showing weather maker for this timeframe. I'm not impressed with the big picture and think this system will be a minor deal. Let's see how the models trend in the coming days.
On Thursday morning a period of rain and maybe even a thunderstorm will move thru southern WI. No concerns. Impact should be mostly an inconvenience to morning commute. The main system comes through Wisconsin Thursday night.
Monday light snow/rain chance for southeast WI. Weak disturbance but could produce minor accums on grassy surfaces wherever it tracks.
I don't believe GOLD & DARK GRAY color scheme is core to wisconsinwx.com, Wisconsin Weather fb page, or anything. Who said it should stay the same forever? Is it time to change it up? I have an idea to go along with this FRESH RESTART.
GFS showing quite a bit of snow accumulation thru OCT 28, mainly northern WI. WE'LL SEE. Certainly an active pattern consistently showing up. I'll believe it when I see it.
strong pressure falls along the cold front passing through today
