  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
  15. Today in Weather History for March 23 March 23, 1913 A vicious tornado hit the city of Omaha, NE. The tornado struck during the late afternoon on Easter Sunday, and in just twelve minutes cut a swath of total destruction five miles long and two blocks wide across the city killing 94 persons and causing 3.5 million dollars property damage. (David Ludlum) March 23, 1916 Pocatello, ID, received a record 14.6 inches of snow in 24 hours. (The Weather Channel) March 23, 1987 A blizzard raged across western Kansas, and the panhandle of Texas and Oklahoma. Pampa TX received 21 inches of snow, and winds gusted to 78 mph at Dodge City KS Altus OK. Governor Hayden declared forty-six counties in western Kansas a disaster area. In southwest Kansas, the storm was described as the worst in thirty years. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) March 23, 1988 Thunderstorms developing along a strong cold front spawned tornadoes near Roberts ID and Bridger MT. Strong and gusty winds prevailed in the western U.S. Wind gusts in the southwest part of Reno NV reached 89 mph. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) March 23, 1989 Charlotte and Wilmington, NC, reported rainfall records for the date as showers and thunderstorms prevailed in the southeastern U.S. Freezing rain glazed parts of North Carolina and southern Virginia. Gale force winds produced a heavy surf along the coast of North Carolina. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) March 23, 1990 An upper level storm system produced heavy snow in the Lower Missouri Valley. Snowfall totals ranged up to nine inches at Kansas City MO, with eight inches reported at Falls City NE, Columbia MO and Saint Louis MO. Thunderstorms produced heavy snow in the Kansas City area during the evening rush hour. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) March 23, 2007 A trailer is thrown through a bowling alley as a tornado moves through Clovis, NM. About 100 homes and businesses are destroyed, at least three schools are damaged and telephone poles are snapped. Thirteen tornadoes struck a dozen communities along the New Mexico/Texas border. Two people were critically injured. March 23, 2011 A series of tornadoes are spawned from severe thunderstorms in Pennsylvania.

  19. MD 0226 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 30... FOR TX PANHANDLE Mesoscale Discussion 0226 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0740 PM CDT Fri Mar 22 2019 Areas affected...TX Panhandle Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 30... Valid 230040Z - 230215Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 30 continues. SUMMARY...Strong/severe convection will shift east across the TX Panhandle over the next few hours. DISCUSSION...An elongated southwest-northeast oriented MCS has evolved over the TX Panhandle early this evening. While a few embedded supercells remain, the primary storm mode is more complex and suggests large hail and locally strong winds are the main risks with this activity. 00z sounding from AMA sampled a pre-storm environment with modest instability and shear more than adequate for maintaining organized updrafts. It appears this complex of storms will propagate east of the watch over the eastern TX Panhandle in the next few hours and there is some concern that hail could accompany the stronger updrafts. As the LLJ veers into western OK late the southwestern flank should lag across the southern Panhandle region. Severe watch may need to be extended into the eastern part of AMA CWA to account for this risk. ..Darrow.. 03/23/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product... ATTN...WFO...LUB...AMA...

  20. Today in Weather History for March 22 March 22, 1920 A spectacular display of the Northern Lights was visible as far south as Bradenton FL, El Paso TX, and Fresno CA. At Detroit MI, the display was described so brilliant as to blot out all stars below first magnitude. (22nd-23rd) (The Weather Channel) March 22, 1936 A great flood crested on rivers from Ohio to Maine. The flood claimed 107 lives and caused 270 million dollars property damage. (David Ludlum) March 22, 1954 Six to ten inch rains caused the Chicago River to overflow its banks. (The Weather Channel) March 22, 1987 An intense storm produced heavy snow in the southern and central Rockies, and high winds from southern California to West Texas. Wolf Creek Pass CO received 24 inches of snow, and winds gusted to 69 mph at Ruidoso NM. Blizzard conditions were reported in eastern Colorado. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) March 22, 1988 Rain and high winds battered the Northern Pacific Coast Region, with wind gusts to 78 mph at Ocean Shores WA. The high winds uprooted trees and down power lines. Ten cities in the northeastern U.S. reported new record low temperatures for the date. Eight cities in the central U.S. reported record highs. Southerly winds gusting to 60 mph helped push the mercury at Ottumwa IA to a record warm reading of 83 degrees. (Storm Data) (The National Weather Summary) March 22, 1989 Six cities in the Great Lakes Region, and three in southern Texas, reported new record low temperatures for the date, including Alpena MI with a reading of 9 above zero, and Brownsville TX with a reading of 38 degrees. (The National Weather Summary) March 22, 1990 A surge of arctic air kept temperatures in the teens and 20's during the day in the north central U.S., and heavy snow fell over parts of Montana. Record warmth was reported in the western U.S.,and in Alaska. Phoenix AZ reported a record high of 94 degrees, and the town of Barrow, located along the arctic coast of Alaska, reported a record high of 20 degrees.

FOR TX PANHANDLE Mesoscale Discussion 0225 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0533 PM CDT Fri Mar 22 2019 Areas affected...TX Panhandle Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 30... Valid 222233Z - 230000Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 30 continues. SUMMARY...Strong/severe thunderstorms will spread across portions of the TX Panhandle this evening. Large hail and damaging winds remain the primary threats. DISCUSSION...Leading edge of large-scale forcing for ascent is spreading across northeast NM into the TX Panhandle. In response to this forcing, convection has gradually increased in areal extent and intensity from the northern TX Panhandle, southwest into Deaf Smith county. This activity appears to be evolving into a small MCS that should propagate east across the TX Panhandle as LLJ increases then veers toward western OK. While isolated supercells have been the predominate mode early, forcing should encourage storm mergers that will lead to a squall line over the next few hours. Wind/hail are the primary threats as this complex matures and shifts east. ..Darrow.. 03/22/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product... ATTN...WFO...LUB...AMA...ABQ...

  23. MD 0224 CONCERNING SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH LIKELY FOR EAST-CENTRAL NEW MEXICO INTO PORTIONS OF THE TEXAS PANHANDLE Mesoscale Discussion 0224 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0201 PM CDT Fri Mar 22 2019 Areas affected...East-central New Mexico into portions of the Texas Panhandle Concerning...Severe potential...Watch likely Valid 221901Z - 222130Z Probability of Watch Issuance...80 percent SUMMARY...The threat of damaging wind gusts, hail, and perhaps a tornado should gradually increase from west to east across the discussion area this afternoon. A WW issuance is being considered - most likely in the next couple of hours. DISCUSSION...Recent convective trends are on a general uptick near a lee trough on the western extent of the discussion area. These trends should continue given approaching ascent and cooling aloft associated with a shortwave centered near the Four Corners. Meanwhile, warming surface temperatures (low to mid 60s F) and 45-52 F dewpoints were contributing to weak to moderate surface-based instability, which should reach 1000-1500 J/kg range through peak heating as the mid-levels continue to cool. Surface winds in eastern New Mexico have veered slightly, suggesting a relatively low tornado threat initially. However, a remnant rain-cooled boundary persists across the TX Panhandle from near 20 W DHT to near AMA, and surface winds remain backed to southeasterly in this area. As storms migrate into the Panhandle, the remaining boundary and modest increase in low-level flow may support a tornado or two, although the primary threats with this activity should primarily be hail and damaging wind gusts. ..Cook/Hart.. 03/22/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...
