Best And Worst Months To Go

So much of our interesting weather is associated with air moving up and down our substantial terrain and tomorrow will be a stellar example. I would estimate that the jet stream would be displaced north over the Northwest before sharply dropping down to the southern Plains. This is the CFS v2 forecast for 850mb anomalies in January 2013. Here we see warmer than normal temperature anomalies over the Northwest and extreme Southeast portions of the nation. This is also reflected in the extreme Southwest US. As such, ANOVA is often used to determine if three or more different methods or treatments have the same effect on a population. The students are given a worksheet with three headings on it—vocabulary, prediction, and definition. Roads are relatively warm right now. That “big hand” now pushes harder to drive the boat sideways and to pivot it into the wind. Imagine being in IOWA or KANSAS where you could drive for hours and barely notice a chance in the weather.

Another storm track could follow along the Southwest, with systems ejecting into the Southern Plains before being picked up and shifted back across the main track through the Northeast. Downstream blocking in the jet stream is now going to suppress much of the moisture from the storm which, not more than a few days ago, was predicted by many models to produce ice and even rain for MRG. But I have learned not to be too confident about Seattle snow and freezing rain forecasts. Here is the latest air and road (boxes) temperatures from Seattle SNOWWATCH. However, the sudden appearance of these little bubbles of below normal sea surface temperatures are concerning to me in the sense that the Equatorial Pacific is sending many mixed messages. Warmer than normal anomalies also exist over the Caribbean. The same ridge of high pressure rule may also apply over the Southeast and Caribbean. The researchers suggest that autism may be rooted in an impaired ability to predict events and other people’s actions.

This stormy and cooler pattern should persist through the end of May. Additionally, as much as 4000 j/kg of instability may be present to support the storms, which appear to want to fire in the afternoon hours into evening. Instability parameters show over 5000 j/kg of instability overnight Saturday, decreasing into the mid-3000’s by evening on Sunday. Temperatures meanwhile will climb close to 20 Saturday and well into the 20’s by Sunday. The airmass this weekend will keep temperatures below freezing, but it is a very stable one. If clouds come in soon enough tonight, temperatures will not fall too much and even if few flakes hit the road, they will melt quickly. Homeowners have come to use the Weber name to express quality because the Weber gas grill is one of the few products that exceeds your expectations. I know the TV stations will have something better: The Santa Storm, Holiday Express, etc. And the Weather Channel will give it some scary name: Storm Boris or something. There is the potential for significant damaging wind tomorrow in the Northeast, leading the Storm Prediction Center to include a moderate risk for much of the area I outlined in pink.

But they remained adamant–if I talked about education topics there was no place for me on KUOW. Elevated and non-elevated roadways are in the 40s. That is good place to start. With a ridging pattern expected along the western coast of North America, drier than normal conditions are expected. A second low is expected along the Atlantic Coast and spread precipitation into New Jersey or southern New England Sunday night or Monday but this moisture is not expected to make its way farther north. Wow. Gusts reaching 60 knots over parts of the Strait and offshore of the central WA coast. At 10 AM tomorrow a low center will be parked off our coast, precipitation will be moving in over the region, and a very large pressure difference will develop over the Cascades. Meteorological Situation at 2100: A southerly airflow develops over Ireland due to a depression of 971 hPa situated in mid-Atlantic and will strengthen overnight. •Take frequent breaks while shoveling- heart attacks have been recorded due to too much work. If this occurs, it will not do so until late Monday or Tuesday and we will have to hope that some lingering moisture is there to be had.
