Skywarn Meeting Tonight

Tonight is a big night in the eyes of the “weather geek”.  The 1st of  March marked the official start of severe weather season in the United States.  We all remember from last year the power mother nature can pack when it comes to this type of weather.  June 17th comes to mind with that […]

A major 8.9 magnitude earthquake struck just off shore of the east coast of Japan just before midnight central time last night.  This is occurred in the region commonly known as the ring of fire, due to its numerous active volcanoes and seismic activity.  As if this massive tremor wasn’t enough, the quake generated a devastating tsunami followed.  Wave heights were as high […]

March Storm/Snow Totals

Like we thought,  snow totals out of our latest storm weren’t that impressive, well at least compared to the storms of December.  While southeastern Minnesota and northeastern Iowa did not see the worst of this March storm, major impacts are still being felt over the entire eastern third country.  Check out the watches/warnings this morning […]

March 4, 2011 0 Comments

We haven’t seen much sunshine lately in the past few days, but that hasn’t stopped temperatures from making it into the mid to upper 30’s this past week.  This recent thaw has done numbers to decrease the dirty and ugly looking snow pack that still covers the area.  More snow is expected to fall next week which […]

In Like A Lamb

You know the saying…In like a lion and out like a lamb or the reverse, but does this weather folklore hold true scientifically?  If it does, we would expect to end March on an exciting note since today the weather was quite tranquil to start the month.  Temperatures were in the mid to upper 30s, the sun was […]

EX.I.T.Ed for the EX.I.T.E. Camp

I was happy to be a presenter (AND I had a blast!) at IBM’s 10th annual “EX.I.T.E” Camp. It’s a 4-day camp for middle school girls, with hands-on activities with technology that keep them motivated and interested in the math, science, technology, and engineering fields (EX.I.T.E. stands for “Exploring Interests in Technology and Engineering”). During […]

June 15th weather update

June 15, 2010 0 Comments

Storms are popping ahead of a cold front moving through.  We’ve had reports of funnels west of Rochester this afternoon, but no warnings, and no tornadoes, and nothing more than some gullywashers and lightning. The winds in the atmosphere, along with the slightest amount of instability, have made for the possibility of weak rotation, but […]
