  5. MD 0230 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 31... FOR CENTRAL/SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA Mesoscale Discussion 0230 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0810 PM CDT Sat Mar 23 2019 Areas affected...Central/Southern Oklahoma Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 31... Valid 240110Z - 240315Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 31 continues. SUMMARY...Severe threat continues for WW31 with large hail, strong wind gusts, and perhaps a brief/weak tornado possible. DISCUSSION...Multiple severe thunderstorms are moving east/northeast across central/southern Oklahoma. There remains a corridor east of the dryline to approximately a line stretching from Tulsa to the Red River where storms will remain surface-based. Effective bulk shear of 40-50 knots and 250-800 J/kg of MLCAPE are within this warm sector according to mesoanalysis. While the severe threat will begin to diminish later this evening, established severe storms could still produce large hail even as storms become elevated. While strong wind gusts and a brief/weak tornado are possible, large hail continues to be the primary severe threat during the next couple of hours. A watch extension is unlikely at this time given the marginal severe environment east of the watch and beyond expiration time. ..Nauslar/Thompson.. 03/24/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

  7. MD 0229 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 31... FOR SOUTHERN/CENTRAL OKLAHOMA Mesoscale Discussion 0229 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0607 PM CDT Sat Mar 23 2019 Areas affected...Southern/Central Oklahoma Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 31... Valid 232307Z - 240100Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 31 continues. SUMMARY...Severe threat within WW31 continues with large hail, strong winds, and perhaps a brief/weak tornado possible. Farther south in north Texas, a storm or two may develop and become severe in the next hour or two. DISCUSSION...A severe storm with a history of large hail is moving east of Oklahoma City. This storm should maintain its intensity for the next hour or two before weakening and/or becoming elevated as it reaches a more stable environment. A couple of other updrafts are maturing in southern Oklahoma just north of the Red River within in environment characterized by 500-1000 J/kg of MLCAPE and 40-50 knots of effective bulk shear. However, surface convergence is weaker than in central Oklahoma and warming 850 hPa temperatures/cooling surface temperatures may limit intensification and duration of a storm in this area. More storms may develop along the dryline and outflow from the severe storm near OKC in the next couple of hours across central Oklahoma, but there remains uncertainty to convective initiation and intensity with this possible scenario. Storms are trying to initiate west of Ft. Worth along the dryline. Surface convergence is more diffuse than in central Oklahoma, but a few surface wind observations have backed slightly to the southeast in the last two hours, which corresponded to maturing updrafts in the Cu field. A storm or two may develop and move east/northeast across north Texas in the next hour or two, and any storm that develops could become strong/severe with hail/wind as the primary threats. ..Nauslar/Thompson.. 03/23/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

  8. MD 0228 CONCERNING SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH UNLIKELY FOR NORTH-CENTRAL KANSAS AND SOUTH-CENTRAL NEBRASKA Mesoscale Discussion 0228 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0256 PM CDT Sat Mar 23 2019 Areas affected...north-central Kansas and south-central Nebraska Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely Valid 231956Z - 232200Z Probability of Watch Issuance...5 percent SUMMARY...Thunderstorms are expected to develop this afternoon within a low-level-directional-sheared environment. Although instability will remain limited, small hail and a brief tornado or two may be possible. DISCUSSION...A strong surface low will move east-northeast, across northwest Kansas, this afternoon and evening. Although instability is limited along and ahead of this surface low, strong large-scale ascent, steep midlevel-lapse rates, and little-if-any convective inhibition will promote the development of isolated thunderstorms this afternoon and early evening. The large-scale wind field is relatively weak across the area, but does exhibit strong low-level direction shear. Thus, even though thunderstorm updrafts may not be capable of sustained mid-level rotation, shallow, transient mesocyclones will be possible with any discrete thunderstorm. Additionally, cold midlevel temperatures will also support the potential for small hail/graupel with any sustained updraft. The threat should quickly end with the loss of diurnal heating. A watch is currently not expected. ..Marsh/Hart.. 03/23/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product... ATTN...WFO...OAX...TOP...ICT...GID...DDC...GLD...

  9. MD 0227 CONCERNING SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH POSSIBLE FOR OKLAHOMA INTO NORTH TEXAS Mesoscale Discussion 0227 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0233 PM CDT Sat Mar 23 2019 Areas affected...Oklahoma into north Texas Concerning...Severe potential...Watch possible Valid 231933Z - 232130Z Probability of Watch Issuance...40 percent SUMMARY...Isolated thunderstorms may develop this afternoon across portions of Oklahoma and north Texas. These thunderstorms would be capable of gusty winds and large hail, although a brief tornado or two cannot be ruled out. DISCUSSION...Skies have mostly cleared across Oklahoma in the wake of earlier convection. Additionally, south-southeasterly winds have contributed to modest low-level moisture return as indicated by surface dewpoints in the low-to-mid 50Fs. The combination of increasing insolation, steep midlevel-lapse rates, and modest surface moisture has resulted in between 500-1000 J/kg of mixed-layer CAPE. Recent trends in the cumulus field indicates the presence of a stable layer across the region. RAP forecast soundings, and HRRR model reflectivity trends, indicate the combination of surface temperatures approaching 70F and large-scale lift will be enough to erode this stable layer during the afternoon. The result should be an increasing threat of thunderstorms capable of producing large hail and gusty winds during the late afternoon into the evening. Wind fields veer with height and would generally be supportive of updraft rotation. However, generally poor low-level moisture and weak low-level wind fields should preclude a greater tornado threat. At this time, confidence in thunderstorm coverage remains fairly low and the need for a watch is uncertain. However, trends will continue to be monitored. ..Marsh/Hart.. 03/23/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product... ATTN...WFO...TSA...FWD...OUN...

  11. Here is today's pollen count. Tomorrow and Monday will be even higher.
  12. Watch this. It shows the Coronal Mass Ejection from the sun and its impact with earth today. https://www.swpc.noaa.gov/products/wsa-enlil-solar-wind-prediction
  13. This shows the forecasted wave of plasma as it impacts earth.
  14. Good Saturday morning!!! Another nice couple of days in store with temperatures on a slow rise to the upper 60's to low 70's by tomorrow. Expected a corresponding jump in the pollen count, so temper your enthusiasm. This is about the time they start doing weekend pollen counts, so we may see one later this morning, if so I'll post it. Rain returns beginning late Sunday. Here's the NWS discussion: I couldn't help myself yesterday, I created a new page at DaculaWeather.com. This new page displays images and videos of the sun from the Solar Dynamics Observatory. I tried to make the page informative as well as fun to look at. 😉 I haven't tried it on a mobile device even though I have three sitting next to me... but it looks great on the laptop! 🙂 Give it a try and let me know what you think? http://www.daculaweather.com/4_sdo_videos_images.php
