DEC 27, 2020 - Snowing now in central Wisconsin. Two more winter storms possible in the week ahead. Let's taco bout it.
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.
DEC 26, 2020 - Light Snow on Sunday. Lots of hype about major system next week, will it happen?
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!

Western edge of the winter storm cloud deck. Neat cloud and clearing that follows.
Be careful what you wish for ;)
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.
Starting as rain/snow mix today, 3-6" of snow will fall across southern Wisconsin tonight & Saturday. Get the latest forecast here ->
Warm week ahead with a cool down and rain/snow possible by FRI/SAT
Working on a project. Playing around with April 10, 2011 using archived radar images and the new storm events database. 
December will be warmer than average. Looking at January.
Dec 1 storm is staying east. Let's talk about December
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. 
Watching the Nov 30 - Dec 3 timeframe across the eastern US for a large/long duration storm system.
Checking in? Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! Status report.
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.
Thank you Rich!

WIWX ALERTS - I don't push SMS/EMAIL message for EVERY UPDATE. Some things don't need to be sent out, less important, or redundant. Also I have to ability to target message sends by county; if you don't have a saved location in that specific county - you won't get the message. I'm open to suggestions. Perhaps we could add an entire domain distribution list...if you're on it; you'd get everything posted regardless of location or importance. Let me know what you think. Thanks!
Hey Justin, just wanted to thank you for your work here, to wish you well. and hope you find what you're looking for. You're not alone.  I've been a computer geek for 3+ decades, but now would rather be out in my garage than flipping bits.  I'm sure the Powerball jackpot is the answer, but for some strange reason, I haven't won yet.

TC!

Rich

Glad it’s not as painful as it looks. Nasty!  I had bursitis in my knee once, but that wasn’t as big as your elbow, and it was painful. Go figure!

So this rain is just going to sit over us all night?  Or is it really spinning or something?
Anyway, still steady light rain here. 
G’night

Thanks! I agree, my lawn was drying out. Good rain. Not the heavy rain event I thought might be coming in. That's ok. A few quiet days ahead. 

Elbow is painless actually. Bursitis I believe and think I know the cause. Supposed to rest it for 4-6 wks (ha! NOT HAPPENING). Keeping an eye on it.
