TGIF!

TriBond Results
These were two challenging TriBonds - only half of you got both of them right. For #2, I got a lot of answers that were close, but you only got credit if you included the word "removed."

Players: 20
TriBond #1 (11/20): Your Heart, Your Fingers, The Street = You Cross Them

TriBond #2 (15/20): Inflamed Appendix, Trespassers, Stains = They're Removed


Autumn 2007 Point Standings
Power of 10 week is always fun in my opinion because it can really shuffle up the standings. In this case, two people got promoted to the Top Nine while two others fell below. There's just two weeks left in the current season before the playoff week!

Today’s Thought: I was going to write about the Packers game last night, but that didn't go over so well (although Aaron Rodgers did impress me!), so instead I'll quickly talk about yesterday afternoon. Our staff went to The Players Choice here in Appleton for a couple hours of team-building activities (setup a tent with everyone blindfolded except for one person, etc.) But we also played about six games of dodgeball. Yep, dodgeball, the game probably none of us have played since grade school. And I had completely forgotten how much fun that game was. What a blast!

Today’s Forecast Grade: B-


Important Weather Statement: (Source: National Weather Service)
Northern Wisconsin:
... Winter Storm Watch in effect from Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning...
The National Weather Service in Green Bay has issued a Winter
Storm Watch... which is in effect from Saturday afternoon through
Sunday morning.

Snow... heavy at times... is expected to develop across north central
Wisconsin Saturday afternoon. The snow will mix with sleet and freezing
rain after midnight Saturday night... then taper off to light snow
or flurries Sunday morning. Total snowfall accumulations are
expected to be 6 to 10 inches.

A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant
snow... sleet... or ice accumulations that may impact travel.
Continue to monitor the latest forecasts.
http://www.wunderground.com/DisplayDisc.asp?DiscussionCode=GRB

Fox Cities:
... Significant winter storm to affect northeast Wisconsin this weekend...
Winter Storm Watch in effect from Saturday afternoon through Saturday evening...
Snow... heavy at times... is expected to develop across east
central Wisconsin Saturday afternoon. The snow will mix with
sleet... rain and freezing rain Saturday evening. Precipitation
will taper off to light rain or freezing drizzle shortly after
midnight Saturday night. Snowfall accumulations are expected to be 4
to 7 inches before the changeover... with lesser amounts near Lake
Michigan.

A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant
snow... sleet... or ice accumulations that may impact travel.
Continue to monitor the latest forecasts.
http://www.wunderground.com/DisplayDisc.asp?DiscussionCode=GRB

Southern Wisconsin:
The light snow has ended west of Madison and was beginning to exit southeast Wisconsin early this morning. Look for all the snow to end in the far southeast between 6 and 7 am. Any additional accumulations will be under 1/2 inch. Most of the snow overnight fell north of Milwaukee and Madison...so roads may be a little slippery for a time this morning...especially on secondary roads. No snowfall reports have come into the office at this early hour...but given the snowfall rates and the period of snowfall...any amounts are expected to be an inch or less. Look for sunshine across all of the area by mid morning.
-----------------
... Major snow and ice storm expected Saturday afternoon...
Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from Saturday afternoon through late Saturday night...
Snow is expected to develop Saturday morning across southern
Wisconsin and become heavy at times by afternoon. Snow amounts
are expected to range from around 1 inch along the Wisconsin
Illinois border to nearly 6 inches in the Montello... Fond Du Lac
and Sheboygan areas... before the precipitation changes to sleet
and freezing rain.

Of more concern is the amount of freezing rain and ice that could
accumulate on top of the snow by Saturday night. Current
indications are that widespread accumulations of sleet and
freezing rain totaling one quarter to one half inch will fall on
top of the snow. Travel conditions will likely turn hazardous and
very difficult. The potential for ice accumulations to damage
trees and power lines also needs to be considered. Ice
accumulations would likely be highest away from the warmer shores
of Lake Michigan.

A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant
snow... sleet... or ice accumulations that may impact travel.
Continue to monitor the latest forecasts and listen for later
statements on this developing winter storm.

Wisconsin Forecast:
Now: At 7am with sunshine and breezy conditions, temps are in the single digits above zero north, the mid- teens central and upper teens south.
http://iwin.nws.noaa.gov/iwin/wi/hourly.html
http://www.pollen.com/state.asp?id=wi

Synopsis: The weather map for today isn't all that interesting, with just a weak low pressure system just to our east which gave our porch a dusting of snow last night. However, tomorrow's weather map will be much more interesting, as a panhandle-hook low-pressure system moves through the Rocky Mountains, Kansas and Missouri, soaking up lots of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, then shooting northeast thanks to the upper-air jet stream. Meteorologists will be closely monitoring the air temperature as just a couple degrees of difference could mean the difference between a lot of snow, a mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain, or an overhyped mostly rain event.
http://www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov/sfc/ussatsfc.gif

Today: Partly cloudy and breezy. Highs mid- teens north, 21 central, and mid- 20s south.

Tonight: Increasing clouds, cold, lows near zero north, 5-10 above zero central, and lower teens south.

Saturday: Becoming cloudy and windy with snow developing around lunchtime and becoming heavy at times during the afternoon and evening. Snow will turn to sleet, freezing rain and/or rain from south to north in the evening as warmer air moves into Wisconsin, and the timing of this changeover could significantly affect total accumulations. Highs mid- 20s north, lower 30s central and south. Total expected snow accumulations by Sunday morning are for 6-10" north, 4-7" central and 2-3" south. Chance of snow 90%.

Sunday: Morning and perhaps early afternoon light snow showers, otherwise mostly cloudy and still windy. Highs near 30 north, mid- 30s central and south. Chance of snow 40%.

Next Week:
Monday: Cloudy and breezy, highs 25-30.
Tuesday: More snow, this time from an Alberta Clipper. Could be several more inches. Highs 23-28. Chance of snow 35%.
Wednesday: Light snow or flurries, highs 25-30.


Other City Forecasts:

This Weekend in Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota: Sunshine today, heavy snow tomorrow, clouds Sunday. Highs low to mid- 20s.
... Winter storm watches remain in effect for much of the gopher state and western Wisconsin for this weekend...
... Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from Saturday morning through late Saturday night...
The first winter storm of the season remains poised to affect
much of Minnesota and western Wisconsin this weekend. A strong
area of low pressure developing in the Colorado rockies will lift
north into Nebraska by Saturday evening. A broad band of snow is
expected to develop well ahead of the low on Saturday spreading
across much of Minnesota and western Wisconsin. The low will cross
Iowa Saturday night reaching Wisconsin Sunday morning. Enough warm
air is expected to be pulled north ahead of the low to bring a
period of sleet or even freezing rain into southern Minnesota and
into west central Wisconsin... especially Saturday evening. Sleet
could reach as far north as the Twin Cities Metro area and
Chippewa Falls... Wisconsin. This storm has the potential of
producing snow totals in excess of six inches across much of
southern and central Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Of
course... any areas which experience significant freezing rain or
sleet will see diminished snow totals. Gusty north to northwest
winds will also develop late Saturday night and Sunday which could
cause reduced visibility in blowing and drifting snow.

Travel conditions are expected to deteriorate rapidly on Saturday
as bands of heavy snow move across southern into central
Minnesota and west central Wisconsin.

A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant
snow... sleet... or ice accumulations that may impact travel.

This Weekend in Evansville, Indiana: Rain showers Saturday night and Sunday. Highs lower 50s today and tomorrow and near 60 on Sunday.
http://www.wunderground.com/US/IN/Evansville/KEVV.html
http://www.weather.com/weather/local/USIN0190

This Weekend in League City and Pearland, Texas: Becoming partly cloudy today, isolated thundershowers possible tomorrow and Sunday, highs lower 70s today and upper 70s tomorrow and Sunday.
... Dense fog advisory remains in effect until 9 am CST this morning...
The combination of clear skies... light southeast winds... and
abundant low level moisture have resulted in development of
widespread dense fog overnight and this morning. Many locations
are reporting visibilities of 1/4 mile or less. Conditions are
expected to improve by mid morning.

Motorists should drive with extreme caution and allow additional
travel time. Use low beams... reduce driving speed... and allow for
plenty of room between you and other cars. You can overtake
another vehicle quickly in poor visibilities... so slow down and
drive defensively.

Significant storm system to affect northeast Wisconsin this weekend

By: HaleStorm, 12:26 PM GMT on November 29, 2007

From the National Weather Service in Green Bay:

A strong low pressure system will develop across the Central
Plains on Saturday... then move northeast through the western Great
Lakes on Sunday. The low will bring a wintery mix of precipitation
to northeast Wisconsin during the weekend as it moves towards the
region.

Precipitation is expected to begin as snow on Saturday... with a
mix of rain... freezing rain... sleet... and snow expected Saturday
night. The precipitation is expected to change back over to all
snow on Sunday... as the low moves away from the area and colder
air is ushered in.

Snow accumulations could approach 3 to 6 inches... before mixed
precipitation begins on Saturday night. Precipitation will mainly
be snow and sleet across north central Wisconsin... with more rain and
freezing rain expected across east central Wisconsin.

The exact track of the low pressure system is still uncertain. A
more northward progression of the low would bring more liquid
precipitation... with more snow expected if the low tracks farther
south.

Anyone with travel plans during the weekend should closely
monitor the latest forecasts by listening to NOAA Weather Radio or
your local media.

Important Weather Statement: (Source: National Weather Service)
Northern Wisconsin:
Snow Advisory in effect until 3 PM CST this afternoon...
Snow is expected to develop across the area this morning.
Widespread snowfall totals of 1 to 3 inches are expected by this
afternoon with highest amounts near the Michigan border.

A Snow Advisory means that periods of snow will cause primarily
travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and
limited visibilities... and use caution while driving.

Wisconsin Forecast:
Now: At 7am with clouds and windy conditions across the state and scattered light snow showers north, temps are in the upper teens north and upper 20s central and south.
http://iwin.nws.noaa.gov/iwin/wi/hourly.html
http://www.pollen.com/state.asp?id=wi

Synopsis: What a cold day yesterday was! Along with that nippy wind that developed, our daytime high temperature here in Appleton was only 21 degrees! And while most of us will see warmer temperatures in the 30s today, a new problem arises in the form of light snow showers developing later today, courtesy of a strengthening low pressure system in the Plains states. But if you think this is annoying, wait until Saturday afternoon when a rain/snow event could be the first big troublemaker of the season.
http://www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov/sfc/ussatsfc.gif

Today: Cloudy and windy. Light snow showers developing by this afternoon, especially north. Highs upper 20s north, 35 central, and upper 30s south. Chance of snow 50%.

Tonight: Windy with light snow tapering off to flurries. Total expected accumulations are 1-3" north, up to 1" central and probably just a dusting south. Lows near 10 north, mid- teens central and upper teens south. Chance of snow 30%.

Tomorrow: Mostly cloudy with decreasing winds by tomorrow afternoon. Highs upper teens north, mid- 20s central, lower 30s south.

This Weekend:
Friday: Partly cloudy, highs 25-30.
Saturday: Rain or snow likely, and could be significant. If this falls as mostly snow, it may be snowblower-worthy. Highs 23-28. Chance of precip 70%.
Sunday: Morning light snow showers. Highs 28-33. Chance of snow 30%.

Wisconsin Weather Update for November 26, 2007.

By: HaleStorm, 1:28 PM GMT on November 26, 2007

Good Monday morning!

Highlights of the Week:
Lisa: I hope you all enjoyed a long weekend and a Happy Thanksgiving. The highlight of my week was going to Genesee for Thanksgiving dinner w/ my father and step mother in-law's and their family. Following their tasty turkey feast we travelled to Oconomowoc to visit w/my mother-in-law and her family. It was a lot of travelling but it was worth it to be able to spend a nice Thanksgiving w/our families. Next year we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving w/my family in Berlin. This is the time of year to also reflect on what I'm thankful for. First of all, I'm thankful for being blessed w/ a wonderful husband and son. I'm also thankful for having family to spend special holidays and occasions such as Thanksgiving with. Well that wraps up my update, have a great week.

Steve: I have a lot to write this morning since there was no update on Friday, so basically ditto what Lisa said. Although I must say that the Thanksgiving feast is definitely my favorite meal of the entire year. I'm a big fan of turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, green bean casserole, etc.

Today’s Forecast Grade: B

NowCast: (Source: National Weather Service)
Southern Wisconsin:
Look for areas of light fog...with visibilities between 3 and 5 miles...over south central and southeast Wisconsin during the early morning commute. Patchy dense fog will affect portions of south central Wisconsin...mainly west of a Madison to Monroe line. With air temperatures at or below freezing...the patchy dense fog may freeze on Road surfaces...causing slick spots. Motorists should be alert for rapidly changing Road conditions this morning.
http://www.wunderground.com/DisplayDisc.asp?DiscussionCode=MKX


Wisconsin Forecast:
Now: At 7am with clouds and areas of fog south, temps are mostly in the upper 20s to near 30 across the state.
http://iwin.nws.noaa.gov/iwin/wi/hourly.html
http://www.pollen.com/state.asp?id=wi

Synopsis: We might just be having another typical, cloudy, foggy morning, but a large area of snow showers are falling this morning in northern Illinois, southern Michigan and rain or snow is continuing through the Ohio Valley. This precipitation is being caused by a cold front stretching through central Wisconsin and northern Michigan and another low pressure system in western Tennessee. Almost all of this should stay to the south of our state's borders, so look for a mostly cloudy and breezy day otherwise.
http://www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov/sfc/ussatsfc.gif

Today: Mostly cloudy and breezy with light snow showers possible southeast. High of 37 central, near 40 south.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy, maybe a light snow shower north. Lows lower 20s.

Tomorrow: Partly sunny, a little colder, highs low to mid- 30s.

Extended:

Today and Tomorrow in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina: Morning fog, scattered showers, highs lower 70s today. Partly cloudy and upper 60s tomorrow.
Through 8am...a few scattered showers will move across portions of southeast Georgia and southeast South Carolina. Rainfall totals will be less than 1/10 of an inch. In addition to the showers...locally dense fog will continue to affect the area with visibilities less than one quarter mile. Motorists should be on the lookout for slick roads and poor visibility. Allow plenty of time to reach your destination this morning.
Dense fog advisory in effect until 9 am EST this morning...
Widespread dense fog has developed over south coastal South
Carolina and north coastal Georgia this morning ahead of a warm
front. Visibilities less than one quarter mile or less can be
expected across much of the affected area.

A dense fog advisory means visibilities will frequently be
reduced to less than one quarter mile. If driving... slow down...
use your headlights... and leave plenty of distance ahead of you.
Be particularly aware of children waiting for school buses.
Coastal flood advisory in effect from 8 am this morning to noon EST today...
The combination of astronomically high tides and increasing south
winds will produce shallow coastal flooding around the time of
high tide Monday morning.

The high tide level on Charleston Harbor... expected close to
9 am... will top out between 7.1 and 7.5 feet mean lower lower
water. At fort Pulaski on Tybee Island... the expected high tide
level of 9.2 to 9.4 feet mean lower low water will also occur
close to 9 am.

Shallow coastal flooding begins along the lower South Carolina
coast when tides in the Charleston Harbor reach 7.0 feet... and
along the north Georgia coast when tides reach 9.2 feet at fort
Pulaski. Minor flooding of the usual flood prone areas...
including some roads in downtown Charleston and near fort
Pulaski... is expected.

In addition... minor to moderate beach erosion is possible Monday
morning... especially if south winds produce building surf.

By noon Monday... tides will recede sufficiently to end the threat
of shallow coastal flooding.

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.

Today’s Thought: Poor Bryce had to stay home from daycare yesterday with a lot of chest congestion leading to a bad cough and some wheezing. The people at daycare said that croup is going around there, so they thought Bryce might be coming down with it, but Bryce hasn't had a fever yet so for now it sounds like it's just a chest cold.

Today’s Forecast Grade: C

Important Weather Statement: (Source: National Weather Service)
Southeastern Wisconsin:
Snow Advisory in effect from 6 PM this evening to 6 am CST Thursday...
... First accumulating snow expected across southern Wisconsin...

... Snow Advisory now in effect from 6 PM this evening to 6 am CST
Thursday...

The Snow Advisory is now in effect from 6 PM this evening to 6 am
CST Thursday.

A mix of rain and snow will develop this afternoon turning to all
snow this evening. Two to three inches of snow is expected.

This is the first appreciable snow accumulation for southern
Wisconsin and it comes during the busiest travel season around
the Thanksgiving Holiday. Accumulating snow is also expected to
the south in Illinois. Those planning travel are urged to keep up
with the forecast.

A Snow Advisory means that periods of snow will cause travel
difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited
visibilities... and use caution while driving.


Wisconsin Forecast:
Now: At 7am with clouds and a solid band of rain showers in north-central Illinois, temps are in the low to mid- 30s.
http://iwin.nws.noaa.gov/iwin/wi/hourly.html
http://www.pollen.com/state.asp?id=wi

Synopsis: Moisture behind a cold front stretching across central Illinois and southern Michigan could make travel a little difficult across southern Wisconsin tonight. As the area of low pressure associated with this front strengthens and starts to move to the northeast, colder temperatures and scattered rain showers will develop this afternoon, changing to snow tonight with 2-3" possible in south-central and southeastern Wisconsin. And since we're heading down there tomorrow, we'll be able to have a White Thanksgiving.
http://www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov/sfc/ussatsfc.gif

Today: Cloudy and breezy. Scattered rain showers may develop this afternoon in southern Wisconsin, changing to snow this evening with 1" of accumulation possible. Northern and central Wisconsin may see some drizzle or flurries but that will probably be about it. High of 37. Chance of precip 60% south, 30% north and central.

Tonight: Cloudy and breezy with snow showers south. 1-2" of accumulation is possible south-central and southeast. Lows near 20 north, mid- 20s central and south. Chance of snow 60% south, 40% north and central.

Thanksgiving: Maybe some morning snow showers south, otherwise becoming partly sunny. 2-3" of total snow accumulation by tomorrow morning south-central and southeast with probably just a dusting north and central. Highs lower 30s north, low to mid- 30s central, and mid- to upper 30s south.

This Weekend:
Black Friday: Mostly cloudy, highs 34-39.
Saturday: Cloudy, maybe some flurries, highs 36-41.
Sunday: Partly sunny and breezy. Highs 38-43.

Wisconsin Weather Update for November 19, 2007.

By: HaleStorm, 1:30 PM GMT on November 19, 2007

Good Monday morning!

Highlights of the Week:
Lisa (and Bryce): The highlight of my week was taking Bryce to see Sesame Street Live on Friday night. He wasn't too interactive with the show, but he seemed to like it and he watched it very intently. Every so often he'd point out Elmo and Cookie Monster during the show. He just seemed kind of mesmerized by the whole experience, considering this was his first time seeing all of favorite characters live, instead of on TV. He was very well behaved and he either sat in his seat or on his daddy's lap for the whole show. He didn't even make a fuss when his daddy was planning to buy him an Elmo helium balloon at intermission until the vendor told him it was $8.00. Well that wraps up my update. Have a great week.

Steve: The highlight of my weekend was, go figure, getting to go to yesterday's Green Bay Packers game and sitting in the Thrivent Financial luxury box! My friend/coworker Kevin won two tickets and brought me along with him to the game. So while 70,000 other fans are dressed up in coats and hats, I'm in a short-sleeved Packers shirt eating tons of food, conversing with coworkers, and watching the Pack go to 9-1 with their 31-17 victory. After having worked until 2am the previous evening on launching a redesign of our field intranet Web site, this outing felt great! I took a bunch of pictures from the box - if you want to see what it looks like, check these out:

Today’s Forecast Grade: B-


Wisconsin Forecast:
Now: At 7am with clouds across the state and scattered light rain showers north and central, temps are in the upper 30s.
http://iwin.nws.noaa.gov/iwin/wi/hourly.html
http://www.pollen.com/state.asp?id=wi

Synopsis: Moisture associated with a low pressure system currently in southern Manitoba, Canada is developing a few rain showers north this morning. After this passes, look for dry conditions for the next 24 hours. However, a new low pressure system developing in the northwestern U.S. today will strengthen as it swoops down into Nebraska, then back north into southern Wisconsin by tomorrow afternoon. This will give us more scattered rain showers by Tuesday afternoon.
Also, it looks like someone's going to get an early winter snowstorm Wednesday night, but the latest model data is now showing it just missing Wisconsin, hitting Illinois, Michigan and Indiana instead. That track could change though so stay tuned in case it changes its mind!
http://www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov/sfc/ussatsfc.gif

Today: Morning light rain showers north and central, otherwise mostly cloudy. Highs lower 40s north, 47 central, and just above 50 south. Chance of rain north/central 30%.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy, lows near 30 north, mid- to upper 30s central and south.

Tomorrow: Becoming cloudy and windy with scattered rain showers developing after lunchtime. Highs near 40 north, mid- 40s central and south. Chance of rain 40%.

Extended:
Wednesday: Light snow possible late southeast. The worst of the storm is showing it just barely missing Wisconsin, but with it still almost three days away, it's worth keeping an eye on. Highs 37-41. Chance of snow 40%.
Thanksgiving: Cloudy and cold with light snow showers or flurries. Highs 32-37. Chance of snow 30%.
Black Friday: Mostly cloudy with a 95% chance of extremely long checkout lines and good deals you'll show up too late to get. Highs 33-38.
Saturday: Light snow possible late. Highs 34-39. Chance of snow 30%.
Sunday: Cloudy with light snow or flurries. Highs 30-35. Chance of snow 35%.


Other City Forecasts:

Today and Tomorrow in Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota: Becoming partly cloudy today, isolated rain/snow showers tomorrow, highs near 50 today and only near 40 tomorrow.
http://www.wunderground.com/US/MN/Minneapolis.html
http://www.weather.com/weather/local/USMN0503

Today and Tomorrow in Evansville, Indiana: Mostly cloudy with drizzle today, more rain developing tomorrow night. Highs upper 60s to lower 70s.
Through 7 am patches of drizzle will continue to spread north and east through the region behind a warm front lifting through the area. The drizzle will be most prevalent across southern Illinois and the pennyrile region of west Kentucky. Visibilities may be reduced to around a mile at times. Motorists should be prepared for sudden reductions of visibility.
http://www.wunderground.com/US/IN/Evansville/KEVV.html
http://www.weather.com/weather/local/USIN0190

Today and Tomorrow in League City and Pearland, Texas: Partly cloudy with morning fog today, scattered showers and thunderstorms tomorrow. Highs near 80.
Dense fog advisory in effect until 10 am CST this morning...
Through 8 am...widespread dense fog across southeast Texas will continue to reduce visibilities to less than a quarter of a mile. Motorists are urged to slow down and drive with caution in dense fog during their morning commute.
Recent rainfall... low level moisture... light winds and clearing
skies overnight will contribute to the development of dense fog
across southeast Texas. Dense fog reducing visibility to a
quarter of a mile or less will be likely across the area with
other patches of fog with visibility below a mile. The fog will
begin to dissipate late in the morning as southeast winds
increase across the area.

Motorists should drive with extreme caution and allow additional
travel time. Use low beams... reduce driving speed... and allow for
plenty of room between you and other cars. You can overtake
another vehicle quickly in poor visibilities... so slow down and
drive defensively.

Be on the lookout for sudden changes in visibility. The patchy
nature of the fog will drop visibilities quickly in a short
distance. In addition... visibilities may become severely
restricted near rivers... lakes... bridges... and low lying areas.

Potential First Snowstorm of the Season!

By: HaleStorm, 11:01 PM GMT on November 18, 2007

The latest GFS model run for Wednesday night looks pretty interesting, especially if you're in southeastern Wisconsin or neighboring states.

http://weather.unisys.com/gfs/4d/gfs_pres_4d.html


From the NWS in Milwaukee a few hours ago:

...Holiday travelers keep up with the forecast...

We are closely monitoring a potential storm system that may bring
a significant snowfall to southern Wisconsin Wednesday night into
Thanksgiving day. There is still uncertainty as to how this
system will evolve and how much snow will fall.

There is the possibility that the bulk of the snow will fall well
to our southeast with a relatively weaker low. Meanwhile there is
some indication that a stronger low could form and move along a
favored track into Indiana which would result in a heavier
snowfall across southern Wisconsin.

This is a preliminary heads up to give all interested Holiday
travelers insight into what could end up being a high impact event.

Today’s Thought: Once again, I want to talk about my bowling experience Wednesday night, as I did something I've never done before. I bowled 12 strikes in a row! The perfect 300 game? Nope. I bowled strikes in the last five shots of the first game, then started the second game with 7 in a row before a hanging 10-pin ended my run in the 8th (I got three more strikes and a 9 on the last ball after that for a 278 game, my second-best ever). My first game was a 239, meaning I only needed a 183 for my first ever 700 series...and in typical Steve fashion, splits and changing oil conditions on the lanes prevented me from getting it, netting only a 167 in the last game for a 684 series, my third-best ever. I did make yesterday's paper though!

Today’s Forecast Grade: B-


Wisconsin Forecast:
Now: At 7am with clouds, scattered flurries and cold temperatures, most of us are only in the low to mid- 20s.
http://iwin.nws.noaa.gov/iwin/wi/hourly.html
http://www.pollen.com/state.asp?id=wi

Synopsis: Cold morning temperatures and moisture coming down from central Canada is keeping our atmosphere cloudy with a few flurries scattered throughout Wisconsin this morning. High pressure will move into the Great Lakes region late tomorrow and Sunday, keeping us cool and dry for the rest of the weekend. Look for temperatures to continue to stay on the cold side as winds will stay from the north for a little while, but with Thanksgiving less than a week away, who knows if we'll even see 50s again until February or March!
http://www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov/sfc/ussatsfc.gif

Today: Mostly cloudy with scattered morning flurries. High of 40 north and central, mid- 40s south.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy, lows lower 20s north, upper 20s central and south.

Saturday: Partly sunny, highs mid- 30s north, near 40 central and lower 40s south.

Sunday: Mostly sunny, highs upper 30s north, lower 40s central and low to mid- 40s south.

Next Week:
Monday: Mostly cloudy, windy, light rain or snow possible north. Highs 43-48. Chance of precip 25%.
Tuesday: Cloudy and windy with rain showers. Highs 41-46. Chance of rain 40%.
Wednesday: Windy, rain changing to snow. Dare I say it so soon, but this one's worth keeping an eye on as the GFS model has this pegged as being rather feisty! Highs 35-40. Chance of precip 60%.

Today’s Forecast Grade: B


Wisconsin Forecast:
Now: At 7am with sunshine, temps are mostly just above 40 across the state.
http://iwin.nws.noaa.gov/iwin/wi/hourly.html
http://www.pollen.com/state.asp?id=wi

Synopsis: A strong, mature low pressure system now located in northeastern Ontario has a trailing cold front which swept through Wisconsin last night. The precipitation associated with this storm should stay to our north but a second, trailing cold front currently stretching along the U.S. and Canada border will usher in much colder weather tonight and tomorrow, and the cold weather looks to stick around through this weekend and next week.
http://www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov/sfc/ussatsfc.gif

Today: Morning sunshine with increasing afternoon clouds. Perhaps a light snow shower or flurry north later today. Windy, highs upper 40s north, 51 central, and mid- 50s in southern Wisconsin.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy, breezy and cold. If you're lucky, you might even see a flurry overnight. Lows mid- 20s north, upper 20s central and south.

Tomorrow: Mostly cloudy and much colder, highs only mid- 30s north, near 40 central, lower 40s south.

This Weekend:
Friday: Mostly cloudy, maybe a flurry. Highs 41-46.
Saturday: Mostly sunny, highs 38-43.
Sunday: Scattered rain or light snow showers, highs 37-42. Chance of precip 30%.
Next week's GFS model run is showing a very interesting weather pattern which could involve our first rain-changing-to-snow storm of the season!

http://www.weather.com/weather/local/USMN0503

Today and Tomorrow in Evansville, Indiana: Scattered showers, breezy and upper 60s today, partly sunny and cooler upper 40s tomorrow.
Scattered showers will continue to develop and increase in coverage and intensity across southern Illinois...northwest Kentucky and southwest Indiana. Through 7 am...most of the shower activity can be found in an area from Benton and Carbondale Illinois...eastward to Santa Claus Indiana to Calhoun Kentucky. As the rain moves east near 40 mph...hourly rainfall amounts will range from a trace to locally one tenth of an inch.

http://www.weather.com/weather/local/USIN0190

Today and Tomorrow in League City and Pearland, Texas: Partly cloudy and breezy, highs lower 80s today and lower 70s tomorrow.
Dense fog advisory in effect until 9 am CST this morning...
Record high temperatures possible today...
With abundant low level moisture... mostly clear skies and light
winds in place across the area... dense fog will be possible across
southeast Texas. The fog may persist through the morning hours and
slowly dissipate during the late morning hours Wednesday. The fog
may reduce visibility to below a quarter of a mile in some areas.

Motorists should drive with extreme caution and allow additional
travel time. Use low beams... reduce driving speed... and allow for
plenty of room between you and other cars. You can overtake
another vehicle quickly in poor visibilities... so slow down and
drive defensively.

Wisconsin Weather Update for November 12, 2007.

By: HaleStorm, 2:06 PM GMT on November 12, 2007

Good Monday morning!

Highlights of the Week:
Lisa: The highlight of my weekend was another night of Scrapmania at Archiver's. I got a few pages done in Bryce's scrapbook. I always enjoy these events so much because it gets me motivated and it's fun to share ideas with my scrapbooking friends. Well that wraps up my weekend. Have a great week.

Steve: My highlight of the weekend was receiving my new toy in the mail...an Xbox 360...and completely paid for thanks to Thrivent Financial project reward gift certificates I've been saving for a couple years, so it didn't cost me a dime! I'm really impressed with the new console - the graphics really look life-like, there are over 200 demos you can download and play for free, including many original arcade classics like Pac-Man, Missile Command, Centipede, and almost every Xbox 360 game on the market, you can play online with friends and message/IM/talk to them during gameplay, you can download TV shows/movies/videos similar to iTunes, you can display video/pictures or play music from your PC directly on your TV via the system, and you can keep track of your in-game achievements. Lisa has more achievements than I do, thanks to her Viva Pinata run until 3am Saturday night. So now I'm officially a Wii-60 owner - someone with both a Nintendo Wii and an Xbox 360. Some people grow out of playing video games when they grow up, but I think more and more people from my generation continue to play even after getting a little older.

Bryce (written by Steve): While not exactly a highlight, I thought it would be fun to point out Bryce's sleeping pattern this weekend. We stayed up late Friday night watching the movie Cars, then Bryce finally got to bed around 10:30pm. We thought he'd sleep in, but no, he woke us up at 7am. He took his nap later in the afternoon, around 3pm. He usually takes 2-3 hour naps, but this time was a little different. We checked on him at 5 o'clock, still sleeping. 6 o'clock...still happily sleeping. 7pm...sleeping...odd but not too unusual. 8pm...9pm...10pm...still sleeping! I had to do some Thrivent work from 12-1am so my biggest fear was that he was going to wake up at 2am, fully refreshed and ready to go, but he remained sleeping until about 6am the next morning. A 15-hour nap...not bad! My mom, step-dad and sister Kelley came over yesterday afternoon so we kept him up so he could spend some time with them (and figured he might not be interested in a nap anyway). Shortly after they left, around 7pm, he found a blanket and fell asleep on the floor and slept until about 6am this morning.

Wisconsin Forecast:
Now: At 7am with clouds, a few breaks of sunshine, and warmer-than-usual temperatures, it's in the lower 40s north, upper 40s to lower 50s central and mid- 50s south.
http://iwin.nws.noaa.gov/iwin/wi/hourly.html
http://www.pollen.com/state.asp?id=wi

Synopsis: A warm front stretching southeastward from central Wisconsin is the reason for the warm temperatures this morning. A trailing cold front is also sweeping through central Wisconsin stretching southwestward, and both fronts are associated with a mature, occluded low pressure system in northern Ontario. The cold front only has a few showers trailing behind it, so we should remain dry today, but temperatures will probably not rise up that much more than they already are.

Today: Partly sunny and pleasant. Highs mid- 50s north, 57 central, and upper 50s to near 60 south.

Today’s Thought: I'm back from my one-day trip to Minneapolis! I had an uneventful flight to and from Minneapolis Wednesday and Thursday, I got to meet a bunch of new, successful and motivated Financial Representatives at the Steps for Success Expo where I helped represent our Web Site Solutions group. Afterwards, I got together with my step-brother Jason, who I haven't seen since the last time I was in Minneapolis six months ago. Having made this trip several times now, the preflight nervousness was almost nonexistent and the trip as a whole felt like an old hat.

Look for a band of low clouds...and a Few Lake effect sprinkles or a brief light rain shower...to brush locations along the Lake Michigan shore during the early morning hours. Persons within a mile or two of the shore from Milwaukee to Kenosha are the most likely to see spotty light precipitation between 6 am and 9 am. A more widespread cloud deck across portions of south central and southeast Wisconsin...mainly northeast of a dells...Madison to Burlington line.

Synopsis: A messy current weather chart this morning is showing a small area of high pressure in southwestern Minnesota and a small low pressure system in far northwestern Minnesota.

Snow showers will pass across central and east central areas of Minnesota...including the Twin Cities metropolitan area... as well as west central Wisconsin through mid morning. The leading edge of the snow showers at 530 am stretched from Alexandria to Moose Lake. The snow showers were moving southeast at 45 mph. Visibilities will drop to between 1 and 3 miles as the snow showers move through. Areas that will be most affected by the snow showers will be along and north of Interstate 94.

Weather Channel Founder: Global Warming ‘Greatest Scam in History’
It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming; It is a SCAM. Some dastardly scientists with environmental and political motives manipulated long term scientific data to create an illusion of rapid global warming. Other scientists of the same environmental whacko type jumped into the circle to support and broaden the “research” to further enhance the totally slanted, bogus global warming claims. Their friends in government steered huge research grants their way to keep the movement going. Soon they claimed to be a consensus.

Gore: Don't give equal time to someone who believes the earth is flat

Wisconsin Weather Update for November 5, 2007.

By: HaleStorm, 12:58 PM GMT on November 05, 2007

Good Monday morning!

Highlights of the Week:
Lisa (and Bryce): The highlight of my week was taking Bryce trick or treating on Halloween. He was the cutest little Elmo I've ever seen. He had so much fun riding around the neighborhood in his Radio Flyer wagon cuddled up with his Sesame Street blanket. He enjoyed going up to doors to collect his treats in his little Elmo goodie bag. He was also very well behaved and even though it was cold he didn't complain at all. The highlight of his trick or treating fun was when a fire truck stopped by and a fireman handled out candy to all the trick or treaters. As some of you may know, Bryce's favorite things right now are cars, trucks, trains, tractors, and airplanes. Bryce's eyes just lit up when he saw the big fire truck. He even waved bye bye to the firemen when they moved on to another part of the neighborhood.

Weekend Highlights: The highlight of my weekend was spending time with our friend Dave from Madison and eating dinner at Hu Hot Mongolian Grill. I'm considering it a highlight because I've never eaten there, and I was very impressed. The food was very good, and it wasn't your typical burgers and fries or pizza that we'd normally eat when we go out. Well that wraps up my update. Have a great week.

Steve: My weekend highlight back when I was a little kid was going around and changing all of the clocks back one hour. Nowadays a few of our clocks are smart enough to update on their own, but we still get the pleasure of changing most of the others. My real highlight of the week, as Lisa mentioned above, was having my friend Dave come up to visit for a 'video game weekend'. We played a lot of Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS, watched some football, went out to eat a couple times, and overall had a great time.

http://iwin.nws.noaa.gov/iwin/wi/hourly.html
http://www.pollen.com/state.asp?id=wi

Synopsis: A strengthening area of low pressure is centered over northern Wisconsin this morning. A weaker warm front stretching across Lake Michigan is pushing warm, southerly winds into our area for the moment, but a trailing cold front is going to move through within the next few hours, and despite the lack of precipitation associated with it, once those winds shift to become from the northwest, it's going to get nippy outside in a hurry!
http://www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov/sfc/ussatsfc.gif

Today: Partly sunny and windy today. Flurries north. Warm this morning but becoming much colder by this evening. Morning high of 48 with temps dropping through the 40s and into the 30s before sunset.

the remainder of the morning and the afternoon. The most
significant winds are expected during the late morning and
afternoon hours today. Northwest winds sustained at 20 to 30 mph
will occur across the advisory area... with gusts around 40
mph.

Wisconsin Weather Update for November 2, 2007.

By: HaleStorm, 12:10 PM GMT on November 02, 2007

TGIF!

Halloween Fun!
Our son Bryce was Tickle-Me-Elmo for Halloween, and he loved it! It took us a few minutes to convince him to put on the costume, but once he had it on, he was very happy! There was even a sound box in the right leg that, when pressed, would sound various Elmo giggles. The little trick-or-treater walked around the neighborhood with mommy and filled up his Elmo bag with all sorts of goodies while daddy stayed behind to hand out treats to the other little munchkins. Unfortunately, Bryce is old enough now to eat most of the candy he got this year, instead of mommy and daddy being "forced" to consume it all.
