Friday, August 30



Good morning!

I guess you heard the rain moving through during the overnight hours, it is now pushed southeast of Lincoln and today to should a relatively dry day to kick off the ProSolo!

This is a combined radar/water vapor loop, and the numbers are dewpoints. Much drier air is moving into southeast Nebraska and today should feel great. About 15 seconds into the loop I switch from dewpoint to temperatures.


The NWS hour by hour forecast looks great for today, but tomorrow may be damp at times. 


For tonight, much of the evening should be dry, although rain
chances do increase by late evening and overnight as another weak
wave moves out of the Rockies. It's only a 20-40% chance, and
then just mostly showers with lows in the upper 50s and lower 60s.

That weak wave continues to move through the mid Missouri River
valley Saturday, which again, could bring a chance of showers to
the area, but instability is very limited, so thunder potential
seems small. And if it does rain, amounts would be light with just
a tenth or two of an inch. And still a very comfortable day with
highs in the lower to mid 70's.



As far as next week goes, no major rainfall in the forecast for now. You guys may luck out...


.LONG TERM...(Sunday night through Thursday)
Issued at 310 AM CDT Fri Aug 30 2019

There is some hint that a wave topping the ridge could bring
isolated thunderstorms to area Sunday night. Previous models were
dry during this time, so that's something we'll keep an eye on.
Otherwise, dry weather continues for Labor Day with warmer temps
back in the mid to upper 80s. The long term period is generally
dry, although there is a front that moves through on Tuesday,
which brings cooler weather by Wednesday/Thursday.


So nothing today that should interfere with the competition. Go fast, have fun!

    • 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?
