Gusty Winds And Some Snow

January 31st, 2013 at 11:16 am by under Weather

Gusty winds combine with Nordic air!

Many times when we see a change as big as we just experienced it doesn’t go that smoothly. We do experience side effects and usually it is gusty winds. That’s something we’ve had to deal with in many ways Thursday. First the winds have been gusting up to 40 mph. Here are the peak wind gusts for Thursday so far.

The other problem has been lake effect snow. The gusty west winds have acted as a perfect 'fetch' 
to bring lake moisture to much of our area. While most locations reported a dusting. 
here at the station we saw about .8".

January Tornadoes

How about that?  Tornadoes in January?  Well, that video was from Adaisrville Georgia where January tornadoes are not as rare as you would think.

It’s hard to tell the size or the intensity of the tornado from just video, since the EF-Scale is a wind scale based off of damage, but I would estimate, it was at least an EF-2 tornado.

In the last 36 hours, there have been over 20 reported tornadoes across Dixie Alley.  Click here for the Storm Reports for the last few days.


Tracking flood potential in Fort Wayne neighborhoods

January 30th, 2013 at 3:34 pm by under Weather

Seal of the City of Fort Wayne

New computer model data is available to help track current river levels and future flood potential on the St. Mary’s River and, later in 2013, Spy Run Creek from State Blvd. to just past Coliseum Blvd.

Using this online tool, developed in partnership between the City of Fort Wayne, the National Weather Service (NWS) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), you can monitor the river in real-time and see just how far flood water would travel inland if the river crested at various levels (e.g. 12 ft., 15 ft., etc.).

No computer model is perfect, but this is a useful tool to help provide a general overview of flood potential and help the city and its residents prepare for flooding.

Here are links to the tool via both the NWS and the USGS.  Although the user interfaces differ, the data is the same.

February Starts Off Warmer

January 30th, 2013 at 11:41 am by under Weather

8 to 14 day outlook for the beginning of February (NOAA)

February will begin with much warmer air than usual according to the 8 to 14 outlook from the Climate Prediction Center. Temperatures will be slightly to well above average. So a nice warmer start to the month.Temperatures are beginning to trend .

North Atlantic Oscillation (Courtesy Rutgers.edu) and http://raleighwx.americanwx.com/)

Another indicator of how cold or warm it will get is the North Atlantic Oscillation. A Positive osculation will bring warmer temperatures, while a negative osculation will have colder air across the U.S. You can see by the 7th of February the trend begins to turn and colder air will move in as we have a negative osculation. There have been 4 times the number of record highs reported this year compared to record lows. So far this year 1,513 record highs have been reported as opposed to 321 lows.

Wednesday:

12:10 AM Here’s the deal folks:  I am still here at work, watching the storms to the west.  It’s quiet now, but I thought I would try live weather blogging.

12:11AM:  SPC on fence on weather to issue a watch or not: http://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/md/md0085.html

12:14AM:  Here are the storms to the west:

 

12:19AM:  Tornado Warning east of Mount Carmel:

12:24AM:  Looks like tornado watch in S. IN is being extended to the north.  Not in the WANE area yet:

Tornado Watch in Yellow

12:28AM  Frustrated I can’t get all the pictures lined up straight.

12:33AM:  Waiting for warning to be issued soon for line of storms to our west.

12:37AM:  Getting closer:

12:44AM:  T-Storm warning issued for Indy until 1:30AM:

12:54AM:  Severe t-storm warning right up to Grant County:

1:01AM:  Getting ready to cut in for storm over Peru.

1:13AM: Based on storm motion, to the East at 30 mph, line of storms will hit western Allen County in about an hour:

1:34AM:  Winds have been gusting up to 45 mph for the last 30 minutes at Grissom AFB:

1:45AM:  No severe wind reports north of Muncie.  I am starting to think NWS will not issue any warnings tonight.  This is good.

Thunderstorms In January

January 29th, 2013 at 8:56 pm by under Weather

When I think of forecasting in January for Northern Indiana and Northwestern Ohio, I think of snow, blizzards, wind chills and temperatures in the 30s.  Not temperatures near 60° with showers and thunderstorms.   If you missed out on the rumbles of thunders early Tuesday afternoon, get ready for more late Tuesday night.

Here is the break down:

  • Showers and thunderstorms are likely Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
  • The chance of rain for Fort Wayne by 7AM Wednesday is 100%
  • The highest chance of rain comes between 3 and 7AM.
  • There is a slight risk of severe storms, mainly in the southwest corner of the WANE viewing area.
  • The main risk is winds up to 65 mph and hail up to 1″ in diameter.
  • Because of the balanced wind profile in the atmosphere, there is a low tornado risk.
  • This tornado risk is less than 2%, for brief and weak tornadoes.

Did you catch the last two bullet points there?  Yes, the winds from the surface up to the jetstream change speed and direction with height.  This is called speed and directional shear, a important ingredient for rotating updrafts.   The missing component for thunderstorm intensity in the next 24 hours is the lack of instability, or combined heat and humidity.  So, even though the chance is there, it is very low.  Needless to say, we will be tracking the storms through the overnight in the Live Doppler 15 Fury Storm Center.

Besides the low storm risk, the larger impact to the area will be the 1-2″ of rain across the area which may lead to river flooding later this week.

After that, snow returns with a temperature reset for the next week.  Don;t worry though, our wacky winter returns to above average temperatures about a week into February.


Surprising days ahead
