Monday August 19



We are now getting within distance of the main deterministic models and it is looking like a relatively cool Nationals!

Both the major models (and their ensembles) are showing a trough in the central part of the country during that time frame, and for Lincoln, that generally means cooler temperatures. 



Here's a look at the GEFS high/low temps



Notice a downward trend in the temps and moisture.



It appears the GFS is trying to bring a cold front through around the 2nd-3rd and that Monday and Tuesday look at little bit wet at the moment. I wouldn't read too much into that at the moment, but it is something to watch for. The Lincoln area looks like it may be in a little bit of a NW flow during that time, which would mean that the shortwaves traveling through the flow could be the trigger for showers.

Still a ways out and the details are still unknown, but the general pattern appears to be shaping up as we thought. 🙂 Don't forget the webpage I have for the Lincoln weather, it always has the latest information from the National Weather Service. http://www.daculaweather.com/4_track_lincoln.php

From this point on, I'll have a post every morning, and once the event gets underway and depending on the weather, post may come more frequently. Beginning on the 28th, I will be turning on the automated messages that I have setup for Lincoln and those messages will be going to the Facebook page.

I hope everyone has a great Monday!

    • Gfs is hinting at a tropical system out of the Caribbean.  Pretty nasty at that. It has kept introducing it off and on.  With the big cool down and the movements of overall circulation what are you thoughts here?
    • Good morning!       And speaking of the closed off bowling ball, here's what that 500 mb anomaly looks like. THIS is what we want to see this winter. Big closed upper air lows can make their own cold air in the winter by drawing down much colder air from the upper reaches of the atmosphere.    These are the corresponding surface temperature anomalies... we're going to be well below normal for the first week of October.    Do you remember what last October was like? We were broiling in the mid to upper 80's with extremely dry conditions.   Don't want to ever see that again, that totally ruined fall.  Take a look at the Euro's thoughts on low temps for next Sunday morning.   Here are two images, one from the GFS and one from the Euro, showing a cross section of the temperatures from the surface to about 200 mb which is getting close to 40,000 feet. You can see the dips in the temperatures next week. The temps are in Celsius so the zero degree line is 32 degrees.   While we expect some rain between now and next weekend, it won't be a a lot. There is a decent chance of rain in advance of the bowling ball but nothing significant at the moment. This is the expected rainfall through Thursday morning.   So we'll warm up a little before we cool down, so just a little patience! 🙂 Hope everyone has a great Saturday!
    • Good morning! Man... it just seems like this month is flying by to me. Here we are coming up on the middle of fall and the 2nd busiest month for hurricanes, so that means there ought to be lots of weather to talk about, but right now we're in a lull.  This mornings map (300 mb winds and isobars/dewpoints/water vapor/radar) shows a mostly zonal flow across the northern tier of the US. You can see the weak cold front trailing down though TN/AR/TX. You can also see how the southeast is still in the moisture while the northern and western parts of the US are dry.      Here's a look at the upcoming temperatures for selected areas around north Georgia. These are the official NWS forecast temps. Notice the end of the week.   The rain is about over but there could be a light shower/drizzle passing through, these are the rainfall expectations through 8 pm this evening.   So not much going on to get excited about. After having 5-7 storms in the Atlantic at once, we now have zero.    Yesterday's CoCoRaHS rainfall measurements look like this. I feel very alone up here.... 🙂   That's it! 🙂 I hop everyone has a great Friday!
    • Sorry, missed your question. I guess you've already gotten the answer. 🙂  
    • Any update on expected wind gusts or are we still just looking at breezy conditions if anything?
