Wisconsin Weather Update

Wisconsin Weather Update for April 29, 2010.

By: HaleStorm, 1:05 PM GMT on April 29, 2010

Good Thursday morning!

Yesterday’s Weather Recap
Yesterday was our third nice day in a row with sunshine in the morning, a few afternoon clouds, and high temperatures just above 60.
http://www.weather.gov/climate/index.php

Forecast Synopsis
Our three-day streak of sunshine comes to a close today. A large and slow-moving area of low pressure located in the Plains states has brought the clouds ahead of it, and we'll start seeing showers and thunderstorms develop tomorrow. A few of these storms tomorrow afternoon and evening could be strong or severe, especially if we get some sunshine breaking through the clouds in the late-morning and early afternoon, so keep an eye on that. Otherwise, another round of showers moves through late Saturday through Sunday morning, and more wet weather is expected next week, along with cooler temperatures.

NowCast: (Source: National Weather Service)
Southern Wisconsin:
A band of showers and weak thunderstorms will affect south central Wisconsin this morning. The rain is moving from southwest to northeast at around 45 mph...and will affect areas along and west of a line from The Dells...to Madison...to Janesville from 7 am to 830 am CDT. The showers are scattered in nature...so many locations will not see measurable rainfall. However...embedded small thunderstorms could procure a couple rogue lightning strikes and brief moderate rain showers. The area of rain is fairly narrow...so if rain moves over your location it should last less than an hour. If the rain holds together...the showers will affect southeast Wisconsin...including the Milwaukee Metro between 830 and 10 am CDT.

Good Monday morning!

Weekend Weather Recap
It was a cool, windy and wet weekend across Wisconsin with scattered showers Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon and high temperatures in the lower 50s.
http://www.weather.gov/climate/index.php

Forecast Synopsis
Just like last week and weekend, this week will be two-sided as well. We finally woke up to some relief from all the wet weather we've seen over the last three days. Sunshine and springtime temperatures welcome us this morning, and will remain in place through Wednesday thanks to a large area of high pressure moving across the United States. The clouds start to thicken late on Wednesday, then rain showers enter Wisconsin late on Thursday and continue through next weekend as a new area of low pressure moves into the northern Plains, then becomes nearly stationary for a little while. Sorry about the wet weekend forecast for the second week in a row!

Wisconsin Weather Update for April 22, 2010.

By: HaleStorm, 1:10 PM GMT on April 22, 2010

Good Thursday morning and Happy Earth Day!

Yesterday’s Weather Recap
Yesterday was a little cooler across most of Wisconsin, but we did have quite a bit of sunshine to enjoy. High temperatures were only near 50 in east-central Wisconsin, but warmed up to the low to mid- 60s in southern Wisconsin.
http://www.weather.gov/climate/index.php

Forecast Synopsis
High pressure flowing down from Hudson Bay in north-central Canada is keeping the Great Lakes region sunny and dry but on the cool side of our atmospheric McDLT. Temperatures should start to warm up a bit as a strong area of low pressure (currently in the Rockies) eventually moves into our area. This storm system will generate scattered showers and thunderstorms across Wisconsin starting later on Friday and continuing through Sunday morning. Nothing severe is expected this weekend, however.

Madison: Highs 62-65.

Weather in the News:

(Source: National Weather Service)
... This week is tornado and severe weather awareness week in Wisconsin...

... Tornado characteristics...
tornadoes can occur in many different shapes and sizes ranging from
a few yards to over a mile in width. They can move very slowly...
almost stationary... to as fast as 60 miles per hour.

The size and shape of a tornado does not necessarily say
anything about its strength or its capability to inflict damage.
Since tornadoes can change intensity quickly... all of them should be
considered dangerous.

The vertical winds in these storms are capable of temporarily
lifting heavy objects such as people or even vehicles a hundred feet
above the ground. They are also strong enough to carry lightweight
objects a few miles away from their original locations.

... Tornado classifications...
tornadoes strength is estimated based on the damage they cause. The
Enhanced Fujita scale uses damage descriptions to estimate wind speed.
The scale ranges from EF0 to EF5.

... weak /EF0 and EF1/... wind speeds up to 110 mph. Can exist
for 1 to 10 or more minutes.

... strong /EF2 and EF3/... wind speeds of 111 to 165 mph. Can
exist for 10 to 20 minutes or more.

... violent /EF4 and EF5/... wind speeds of 166 to over 200 mph.
Can exist for 20 minutes to over 1 hour.

... Recent violent Wisconsin tornadoes...
even though 80 percent of Wisconsin's tornadoes have been rated weak
in intensity... Wisconsin has seen several tornadoes since 1980 that were
rated as violent. One of these violent tornadoes occurred as
recently as 1996... peaking in strength east of the Village of
Oakfield in Fond Du Lac County.

... Safety tips...
the safest place to be if a tornado approaches is in a permanent
structure on the lowest level /preferably a basement or cellar/ in an
interior room with no windows... such as a closet or bathroom. Do not
waste precious time by opening windows in your home. Instead...
immediately head for shelter and avoid flying glass or debris that
could seriously injure you.

... Mobile homes and vehicles...
Mobile homes and vehicles are the worst places to be when a tornado
approaches. Both can be easily tossed by a tornado's violent winds.
Take shelter in a sturdy nearby structure.

Tornadoes can be very unpredictable and can change direction and
speed very quickly. Tornado deaths have occurred by motorists
attempting to outrun tornadoes.

Most importantly... always monitor the weather conditions in your
area. If severe weather is a threat... stay tuned to your NOAA Weather
Radio and local TV and radio stations for the latest information on
watches and warnings for your area.

Wisconsin Weather Update for April 15, 2010.

By: HaleStorm, 1:10 PM GMT on April 15, 2010

Good Tax Day/Thursday morning!

Yesterday’s Weather Recap
Yesterday was an outstanding day of weather across Wisconsin. We saw lots of sunshine, a cool-looking meteor in the evening, and daytime high temps were in the 70s with even a few 80s reported in southwestern Wisconsin.
http://www.weather.gov/climate/index.php

Forecast Synopsis
Today is the last day of very mild temperatures for a while. Warm, southerly air is continuing to move northward through Wisconsin today thanks to a warm front hovering over far northern Wisconsin this morning. A line of showers and isolated storms (associated with a trailing cold front) is located across Lake Superior, northwestern Wisconsin, and eastern Minnesota this morning, and is slowly moving to the east. Look for this line of showers and storms to gradually make their way to east-central Wisconsin sometime this afternoon, then arriving in southeastern Wisconsin this evening. The normal high temperature for today's date is the mid- 50s and we're again going to be well above normal today with highs in the 70s to near 80, but record highs set in the mid- 80s might just be too high to overcome today. Behind tonight's cold front is seasonable high temperatures in the 50s, and upper 50s to lower 60s then look to remain in place through this weekend and into next week.

dispatch centers across the southern half of Wisconsin tonight.
The fireball was visible between 10 PM and 1015 PM CDT.

National Weather Service offices in La Crosse...Davenport and Des
Moines Iowa...as well as St Louis and Kansas City Missouri have
received numerous reports of a fireball from law enforcement
officials and the public around the same time as the reports in
our County Warning Area.

While no official determination has been made of what caused the

currently occurring called the Gamma virginids. It began April 4th
and is expected to last through April 21st...with the peak
activity April 14th and 15th. A large meteorite could have caused
the Brilliant fireball that has been reported.

Gotta love springtime in Wisconsin! A snowstorm dumps 6" of snow on us last Thursday morning, then this weekend I'm planting rose bushes in our backyard. Yesterday made up for Thursday with high temperatures in the mid- 60s and plenty of sunshine. Our normal high is low to mid- 50s.
http://www.weather.gov/climate/index.php

Forecast Synopsis
A small area of high pressure now located just to our east dominated our weather yesterday, but a new frontal boundary (stemming from a weak short wave system to our west) is starting to move across far northwestern Wisconsin and central Minnesota this morning. Most of the clouds have already arrived, but a couple clusters of showers and storms are still in North Dakota as well as southern Minnesota this morning. These thundershowers will gradually work their way east and we'll start seeing them later this afternoon and this evening. Nothing severe is anticipated, however, and they should be gone by early tomorrow morning. Temperatures are going to bounce around all week with highs in the 60s today and tomorrow, 70s Wednesday and Thursday, then back in the 50s by this weekend. 'Tis the season!

Wisconsin Weather Update for April 8, 2010.

By: HaleStorm, 12:37 PM GMT on April 08, 2010

Good Thursday morning!

Yesterday’s Weather Recap
Yesterday started off with clouds, scattered rain showers, and high temperatures in the upper 40s to near 50. After the sun set, however, the temperature dropped and the rain changed over to snow! The snow continued overnight last night and many of us woke up to a winter wonderland outside.
http://www.weather.gov/climate/index.php

Forecast Synopsis
So for the first time in Weather Update history, my April Fools' Day fake snowstorm forecast has become a reality. Oh man, this year the joke's on me! Granted, my fake forecast called for 6-8" of snow and many of us are not going to quite get that much, but those of us in east-central Wisconsin could see 3-7" of snow on grassy areas before this ends later today, with lesser amounts to the south and west. This snowstorm is being caused by an area of low pressure centered over lower Michigan. Moisture ahead of this storm developed the rain we saw earlier yesterday, but colder air behind the low's cold front changed the rain to snow and many of us have a couple inches (or more!) of snow on the ground already. Local observers with the NWS have already reported 4-5" on the ground in Hortonville and Appleton, and I'll be calling in my own observation to the NWS shortly. Thankfully the snow won't last long as warmer air will gradually move back in to melt the snow and return springlike weather back to Wisconsin by this weekend.
http://www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov/sfc/ussatsfc.gif


Important Weather Statement: (Source: National Weather Service)
Fox Cities:
... Moderate snow resulting in hazardous driving conditions over much of northeast and east central Wisconsin...
Light to moderate snow... with visibilities as low as one-half
mile at times... will result in total accumulations of 3 to 7
inches across much of east central and northeast Wisconsin by
midday. Roads are snow or slush covered across the region... so
motorists should expect hazardous driving conditions for the
morning commute to work or school.
In addition... the heavy wet snow and gusty north winds may
result in tree damage... leading to localized power outages.
http://www.wunderground.com/DisplayDisc.asp?DiscussionCode=GRB

Southern Wisconsin:
Light snow will continue this morning...mainly along and east of a line from Wautoma to Monroe. The intensity of the snowfall has been decreasing...and little additional accumulation is expected. Warm pavement temperatures should keep roads mostly clear. Accumulations should be mainly on grassy areas. Otherwise...expect decreasing clouds in the west this afternoon with some patchy snow flurries or drizzle in the east.
http://www.wunderground.com/DisplayDisc.asp?DiscussionCode=MKX


Today’s Forecast Grade: D

Wisconsin Forecast:
Today: Cloudy and windy with snow showers ending shortly in southeastern Wisconsin and ending around midday across east-central Wisconsin. Another inch or two of snow is possible in east-central Wisconsin this morning. Total snow accumulations should be in the 3-7" range in east-central Wisconsin with 1-3" in southern Wisconsin (pretty much what you see is what you get as it's just about done there.) High of 41. Chance of snow this morning 30% in southern Wisconsin and near 100% in east-central Wisconsin.

Raw Model Data: (combined numerical output range from three different NOAA weather models)
Appleton: Highs 36-43. Chance of snow 56-75%.
Madison: Highs 41-47. Chance of snow 32-43%.
Waukesha: Highs 39-43. Chance of snow 47-76%.
http://www.nws.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/mos/getall.pl?sta=KATW&sta=KMSN&sta=KUES

Tonight: Decreasing clouds, winds, and temperatures overnight. Cover your outdoor plants! Lows in the mid- to upper 20s.

Tomorrow: Partly cloudy and warmer. Goodbye, snow. Highs in the lower 50s.

This Weekend:
Saturday: Mostly cloudy and warmer, maybe a rain shower. Highs 60-65. Chance of rain 30%.
Sunday: Partly sunny, highs 61-66.

Next Week:
Monday: Mostly cloudy, breezy and cooler, maybe a thundershower. Highs 51-58. Chance of rain 25%.

Wisconsin Weather Update for April 5, 2010.

By: HaleStorm, 1:15 PM GMT on April 05, 2010

Good Monday morning!

April Fools Recap
In case you missed it, I had a little fun with my April 1st weather blog. I didn't go completely overboard with the funny like I've done in previous years - in fact, everything that's in a normal weather update was in last Thursday's update. The only difference is that after I was done, I added a few additional things. Like what, you asked?
--I removed the word "Weather" from "Yesterday's Weather Recap", so in addition to the weather, I discussed my morning coffee, what I had for lunch, my bowling scores that evening, etc.
--The last sentence of the Forecast Synopsis talked about "a rare high-low pressure system" that would bring snow next Thursday.
--Today's Forecast Grade was a word (Wow!) instead of a letter.
--Under the Raw Model Data, "Chance of precip" was from 0-100%. I normally would have stripped that part off since rain was not in the forecast that day.
--I added a next Thursday forecast which included a freak snowstorm that would start at exactly 3:15pm and end at 11:45pm. It's an April Fools Weather Update tradition to forecast a fake blizzard you know. :) Usually my forecast only goes through the following Wednesday.
--A Winnipeg forecast was listed under Other City Forecasts, with the conditions being "Who knows?" and the temperatures "Who cares?"
--Fake news story about local weather blogger's forecast accuracy was added.
http://www.wunderground.com/blog/HaleStorm/comment.html?entrynum=863

Yesterday’s Weather Recap
Yesterday was for the most part a pretty nice, warm day. It was mostly cloudy and breezy, plus we had a few isolated thundershowers rumble through, but mild temperatures remained with highs in the upper 60s to near 70.
http://www.weather.gov/climate/index.php

Forecast Synopsis
An area of low pressure in the central Plains is going to strengthen while slowly moving to the northeast over the next few days. This means that any sunshine will be going away shortly, clouds will be on the increase, and showers and thunderstorms will be likely tonight through Wednesday, and even more likely the further south you live. In fact, according to the Storm Prediction Center, there is a slight risk of severe weather across southern Wisconsin both today and tomorrow. Hopefully we can all sleep through all these rumbles of thunder over the next two nights!

Extended:
Wednesday: Cloudy, breezy and cooler with even more showers and thunderstorms. Highs 52-57. Chance of rain 60%.

Wisconsin Weather Update for April 1, 2010.

By: HaleStorm, 12:14 PM GMT on April 01, 2010

Good Thursday morning!

Yesterday’s Recap
What a great day yesterday! Through the filtered sunshine came very warm end-of-March temperatures thanks to a mild southerly breeze, with most of us hitting somewhere between the low to mid- 70s. I also drank some coffee, wrote some PHP code, ate a reasonably tasty chicken basil sandwich from the cafeteria, and bowled a 223 and a couple 189s in league.
http://www.weather.gov/climate/index.php
http://www.twitter.com/sbhale

Forecast Synopsis
Who says the beginning of Spring is usually pretty crappy around Wisconsin? Green Bay didn't have a single snowflake in March for the first time since records were kept (1886), and Milwaukee only had 0.8" of snow, which is 6.6" less than average. March was the 12th warmest on record for Milwaukee, 4.6 degrees warmer-than-average, and Green Bay was around 7th for warmest March on record.
http://twitter.com/FOX6Weather

If you enjoyed yesterday (and who didn't?), today is going to be even better. A frontal boundary is moving across Wisconsin this morning, and while we're just getting some clouds (no precipitation) from it, it's also bringing even warmer southerly air with it. Record high temperatures should be getting shattered today and tomorrow before an area of low pressure brings cooler air and thundershowers Friday night and Saturday. Next week doesn't look nearly as warm though as our 70s today and tomorrow turn to near 60 this weekend, which then become 50s for the first part of next week, then perhaps just in the 40s by Wednesday. Just in time for baseball season! An occluded front trailing from a rare high-low pressure system could bring much of Wisconsin a lot of snow next Thursday, so keep an eye out for that!
http://www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov/sfc/ussatsfc.gif


Today’s Forecast Word: Wow!

Wisconsin Forecast:
Today: Sunshine, clouds and breezy, but bring on the warmth! High of 77. So which Wisconsin town's going to be the first to break 80?

Raw Model Data: (combined numerical output range from three different NOAA weather models)
Appleton: Highs 72-75. Chance of precip 0-100%.
Madison: Highs 76-77. Chance of precip 0-100%.
Waukesha: Highs 74-75. Chance of precip 0-100%.
http://www.nws.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/mos/getall.pl?sta=KATW&sta=KMSN&sta=KUES

Tonight: Mostly clear, lows in the mid- 50s.

Tomorrow: Sunshine in the morning with increasing clouds in the afternoon and evening. Maybe some rain showers start to move through overnight Friday night. Still very mild and just a little breezy with highs in the upper 70s.

This Weekend:
Saturday: Showers and isolated thunderstorms starting early in the day and continuing through much of the afternoon. Breezy and cooler, highs 59-64. Chance of rain pretty good, 80%.
Sunday: Mostly cloudy, highs 57-61.

Next Week:
Monday: Mostly cloudy and a little cooler for Opening Day at Miller Park. Highs 54-61.
Tuesday: Cloudy, windy and a little cooler with rain likely. Highs 51-58. Chance of rain 70%.
Wednesday: Becoming partly sunny but still breezy and colder. Highs 43-50.
Thursday: Cloudy, windy and colder yet with snow developing, becoming heavy at times around 3:15pm. Highs 30-31. Chance of snow 99.44%. Snow tapers off Thursday night around 11:45pm but not before 6-8" of heavy snow has fallen on your driveway. And you're going to end up manually shovelling this one as you already put your snowblower in the deep part of your garage for the Spring and it's going to be a giant pain to get it out again. Don't think that it'll get warm on Friday and melt all the snow either, because it's not, and besides, that's a pretty lazy attitude, don'cha think?
