2011 Atlantic Hurricane Season ends; warming back up across the South

By: JohnnyParker, 11:35 AM GMT on November 30, 2011

The current temperature is 32, but it feels like 27. Highs will continue to range between 47 and 63 with lows between 27 and 46. There is a 30% chance of a few showers on Sunday and then a 40% chance of showers Monday. Now, for your tropical update. Today marks the official end to the 2011 Atlantic Hurricane Season. Even though, it is the end of the season, does not mean that we are finished though. In fact, there is an area that we are watching for potential development in the Atlantic. The first is surface observations indicate that an area of low pressure centered about 350 miles northeast of the Northern Leeward Islands has become better defined this evening. However, associated shower activity remains disorganized and upper-level winds remain unfavorable for significant development. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a 20% chance of becoming a tropical or subtropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves generally northward at around 15mph. Elsewhere across the Atlantic, no development is predicted over the next couple of days. In the Eastern Pacific, today also marks the end of the 2011 Eastern Pacific Hurricane Season. All is quiet with no development is predicted over the next couple of days. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 35, but it feels like 29. Todays high is 49 with a low of 27. Thursdays high is 56. Hope yall are having a great Wednesday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning. Continue to pray for the tornado victims and those affected by damaging weather events.

Rain today, cold tomorrow and Tuesday with a potential winter mix?

By: JohnnyParker, 1:26 PM GMT on November 27, 2011

The current temperature is 57 and it feels like 57. Highs will continue to range between 44 and 60 with lows between 27 and 40. There is a 100% chance of rain today. There is a 50% chance of showers tonight. Monday and Tuesday is when it gets very interesting. On Monday, there is a 60% chance of rain/snow showers. On Tuesday, there is a 50% chance of rain/snow showers. Now, the question is: will it be cold enough for the snow to stick? I do not believe so because the ground is already wet due to recent rain. I also do not expect any accumulation whatsoever. Now, if this were to happen at night, then yes, I could see some accumulation. We will just have to wait and see what happens. Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific, it is quiet with no development predicted over the next couple of days.

Heavy rain/Severe weather today, cold weather next week?

By: JohnnyParker, 11:40 AM GMT on November 22, 2011

The current temperature is 65 and it feels like 65. Highs will continue to range between 43 and 75 with lows between 32 and 52. It will be 45 on Sunday with a 30% chance of a few showers. On Monday, it is 43 and a low of 34 with a 30% chance of rain/snow showers. We will just have to see what happens. Severe weather and heavy rainfall will occur today over much of the South. Main threat will be wind with hail and isolated tornadoes possible. Secondary threats will be heavy rain and flash flooding. The timing of the worse storms will be between 2pm to 7pm today with thunderstorms occurring between 12 and 1pm. Dr. Greg Forbes, the severe weather expert at the Weather Channel, is giving a TOR:CON (Tornado Condition Index) of a 3 out of 10 or 30% chance for East MS of seeing a tornado within a 50 mile radius. Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, we are still monitoring an area for potential development. The first is showers and thunderstorms have become less organized during the past few hours in association with an area of low pressure located about 900 miles east of Bermuda. This low, which continues to produce gale-force winds, still has some frontal characteristics and subtropical development appears less likely. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a 50% chance of becoming a subtropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves northeastward at 10 to 15mph. Elsewhere across the Atlantic, no development is predicted over the next couple of days. In the Eastern Pacific, Hurricane Kenneth has unexpectedly intensified into a category 3 storm. Winds are at 125mph with a pressure of 957mbars. Latitude is 13.0 degrees North and longitude is 112.8 degrees West. Movement is West at 12mph. Elsewhere across the Eastern Pacific, no development is predicted over the next couple of days. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 64 and it feels like 64.

The current temperature is 63 and it feels like 63. Highs will continue to range between 56 and 79 with lows between 37 and 61. There is a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms today. On Tuesday, there is a 90% chance of strong to severe storms. Main threats will be large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes. Secondary threats will be heavy rain and flash flooding. Winds will be out of the South-Southwest at 10 to 20mph. Timing of this will be from 11am Tuesday morning through 10pm Tuesday night. The worse of it will occur between 2pm to 7pm. Dr. Greg Forbes, the severe weather expert at the Weather Channel, is giving Mississippi a TOR:CON (Tornado Condition Index) value of a 4 out of 10 or 40% chance of seeing a tornado within a 50 mile radius. Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, we are monitoring the same area for potential development. The first is a broad low pressure system located about 850 miles northeast of the Leeward Islands continues to produce a large area of cloudiness, showers and a few thunderstorms mainly to the north and east of its center. This system is forecast to strengthen and produce gale-force winds over the next couple of days, and it is possible that the low could gradually acquire subtropical characteristics before it moves over cooler water. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a 40% chance of becoming a subtropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves north-northeastward at 10 to 15mph. Elsewhere across the Atlantic, no development is predicted over the next couple of days. In the Eastern Pacific, Tropical Storm Kenneth has rapidly intensify over the past several hours. Winds are at 65mph with a pressure of 995mbars. Latitude is 12.3 degrees North and longitude is 108.4 degrees West. Movement is West at 14mph. Kenneth is expected to stay out to sea.

T.D. #13 in Eastern Pacific, Watching Atlantic, and Severe weather outbreak

By: JohnnyParker, 3:11 PM GMT on November 20, 2011

The current temperature is 63 and it feels like 63. Highs will continue to range between 60 and 76 with lows between 37 and 61. There is a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms on Monday and then a 40% chance of Tuesday. A significant severe weather outbreak is possible on Monday night into Tuesday. Main threats will be large hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes. Secondary threats will be heavy rain and flash flooding. Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, we are monitoring one area that is showing signs of organization. The first is shower and thunderstorm activity associated with a low pressure system located about 550 miles northeast of the northeastern Leeward Islands has become slightly better organized during the last several hours. Continued slow development of this disturbance is possible during the next day or two as it moves slowly northward into a region of more favorable upper-level winds. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a 50% chance of becoming a subtropical or tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. Elsewhere across the Atlantic, no development is predicted over the next couple of days. In the Eastern Pacific, we are monitoring Tropical Depression #13. Winds are at 35mph with a pressure of 1005mbars. Latitude is 10.6 degrees North and longitude is 104.7 degrees West. Movement is West at 13mph. By 6pm tonight, it will be 40mph Tropical Storm Kenneth. It is possible that Kenneth could become a hurricane later on.

Watching Atlantic/Eastern Pacific, Severe Weather next week

By: JohnnyParker, 5:28 PM GMT on November 19, 2011

The current temperature is 58 and it feels like 58. Highs will continue to range between 62 and 76 with lows between 37 and 62. Rain returns Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Precipitation chances will range between 30% and 40%. There is a potential for another severe weather outbreak. I believe that Monday and Tuesday will be the best chance for severe weather. Main threats will be large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes. Secondary threats will be heavy rain and flash flooding. Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, we are monitoring one area for possible development. The first is a band of cloudiness and showers over the central Atlantic Ocean extends approximately 800 or 900 miles east and northeast of the Leeward Islands. This activity is associated with the interaction between a surface trough, a tropical wave, and an upper-level low. This system has not become any better organized since yesterday, but a slow development is still possible. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a 20% chance of becoming a subtropical or a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. Elsewhere across the Atlantic, no development is predicted over the next couple of days. In the Eastern Pacific, we are also monitoring one area for possible development. The first is shower activity associated with a low pressure system located about 500 miles south of Acapulco, Mexico has changed little in organization during the past few hours. Environmental conditions appear conducive for this system to become a tropical depression during the next day or two as it moves west-northwestward at 10 to 15mph. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a 70% chance of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. Elsewhere across the Eastern Pacific, no development is predicted over the next couple of days. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 56 and it feels like 56. Todays high is 63 and it feels like 57. Sundays high is 72 with a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms. Hope yall are having a fantastic Saturday and I'll have another post tomorrow.

In the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific, all is quiet with no development predicted over the next couple of days. However, the GFS computer forecast model shows something trying to develop in the Eastern Pacific. I disagree with it since the waters are only marginally favorable to sustain a tropical storm. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 67 and it feels like 67. Todays high is 76 with a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms with winds out of the South-Southwest at 10 to 20mph. Tonights low is 60 with a 100% chance of thunderstorms.

Severe weather outbreak begins, Atlantic getting active

By: JohnnyParker, 11:39 AM GMT on November 07, 2011

The current temperature is 49 and it feels like 49. Highs will continue to range between 60 and 77 with lows between 31 and 56. There is a 50% chance of thundershowers on Wednesday. A squall line could develop and move through our area on Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. This line of storms will weaken has it moves toward our area. Main threats will be heavy rain, flash flooding, large hail, and damaging winds. Although, I cannot rule out an isolated tornado or two. The outbreak will begin today in Oklahoma City down to San Antonio, Texas. On Tuesday, St. Louis down to Houston, Texas will be the threat area for severe weather. After this front moves through, cooler air will move in behind it. A frost and/or freeze is possible on Thursday and Friday nights. Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, we are monitoring one area for possible development. The first is a non-tropical low pressure system located about 400 miles southwest of Bermuda continues to produce gale-force winds over a large portion of the west-central Atlantic. Thunderstorm activity has developed closer to the surface center during the past several hours, and if this trend continues, the low could gradually acquire subtropical characteristics over the next couple of days. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a 30% chance of becoming a subtropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it drifts slowly westward today and northwestward on Tuesday. Elsewhere across the Atlantic, no development is predicted over the next couple of days. In the Eastern Pacific, all is quiet with no development predicted over the next couple of days. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 50 and it feels like 50. Todays high is 74 with a low of 53. Tuesdays high is 76. Hope yall are having a good Monday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning. Continue to pray for the tornado victims and those affected by damaging weather events.

The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a 10% chance of becoming a subtropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves little.
