Rain and storms possible through Friday morning

December 18th, 2014 at 8:07 pm by under Weather

Showers are forecast to develop late this evening, becoming widespread in coverage overnight along and east of Interstate 35. Embedded thunderstorms are also possible. The rainfall will gradually end midday Friday. Rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches will be common east of Interstate 35, with isolated totals up to 3 inches along and east of a Karnes City to La Grange Line. Around 3/4 to 1 inch on average is expected from San Antonio to Austin, and lesser amounts under 1/4 of an inch across western areas. In addition, a few thunderstorms across western areas could produce small hail.
Here’s more information from the National Weather Service about the approaching storm:
HEADLINE
 …Rain chances increase overnight into early Friday…1 to 2 inches of rain possible in some locations.
 
AREA OF CONCERN
 All of South-Central Texas.
IMPACTS
  • Rainfall totals of 1 to 2 inches east of I-35. Highest totals as you move east and northeast of the I-35 corridor…possibly an isolated 3 inch total east of a line from La Grange to Karnes City. Areas west of I-35 can expect generally less than 1″.
  • Isolated Thunderstorms mainly west of Highway 281. Small hail possible.
  • Minor street flooding, especially in urban areas.
TIMING..
 12am – Noon on Friday. While some shower activity is expected to start increasing late this evening, showers along with an isolated thunderstorm will become more widespread late tonight after midnight. Some activity may also linger after noon on Friday across the far eastern sections of South Central Texas.
CONFIDENCE
Moderate to High.
DISCUSSION
 An upper level storm system currently moving across Arizona will move east into West Texas early Friday. This will increase rain chances starting late tonight with the possibility of locally heavy rainfall during the overnight hours into Friday morning. Rainfall totals in the 1 to 2 inch range are possible mainly over the eastern half of South Central Texas (east of I-35), with isolated totals as high as 3 inches in an area to the east of a line from La Grange to Karnes City.
Isolated thunderstorms are possible over the western half of the area overnight and could produce some small hail. While the locally heavy rainfall will be the main impact of this weather system, keep in mind that an isolated thunderstorm is not out of the question.
The system will cross the state quickly on Friday with rain ending west to east during the late morning. Over the far eastern sections…some rain activity could linger through the early afternoon hours but rain chances will be significantly lower past the noon hour.

November 2014 global temperature ties for seventh highest on record

December 15th, 2014 at 8:34 pm by under Weather

Global temperature highlights: November

  • The combined average temperature over global land and ocean surfaces during November tied with 2008 as the seventh highest for the month, at 1.17°F (0.65°C) above the 20th century average. The margin of error associated with this temperature is ±0.13°F (0.07°C). This ends a streak of three consecutive months with a record warm monthly global temperature.
November Blended Land and Sea Surface Temperature Percentiles
November 2014 Blended Land and Sea Surface
Temperature Percentiles
November 2014 Blended Land & Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies in °C
  • The global land temperature was the 13th highest on record for November, at 1.46°F (0.81°C) above the 20th century average. The margin of error is ±0.20°F (0.11°C). Warmer-than-average temperatures were evident over most of the global land surface, except for most of North America, parts of southwest Asia, and a few isolated areas of northern Russia.
  • Some national highlights are included below:
    • The average November maximum temperature for Australia was the highest since records began in 1910, at 3.94°F (2.19°C) above the 1961–1990 average, breaking the previous record set in 2006 and marking the second consecutive month with a record high maximum temperature. The November minimum temperature was third highest on record, contributing to the highest November mean temperature for the country, at 3.38°F (1.88°C) above average and beating the previous record set in 2009.
    • Warm southerly winds persisted during November across much of Europe, contributing to especially warm temperatures for this time of year. November was record warm in Austria and Switzerland, while it was third warmest in Denmark and fifth warmest in the UK. Periods of record vary by country, with each dating back more than a century.
    • Much of North America was colder than average. Parts of northern Ontario were up to 9°F (5°C) colder than average for the month. The United States observed its 16th coldest November on record.
  • For the ocean, the November global sea surface temperature was 1.06°F (0.59°C) above the 20th century average of 60.4°F (15.8°C), the highest on record for November, surpassing the previous record set in 1997 by 0.05°F (0.03°C). The margin of error is ±0.07°F (0.04°C). Record warmth was particularly notable across the eastern Pacific Ocean off the western coast of the United States, sections of the equatorial western Pacific, parts of the western North Atlantic, and the eastern north Atlantic near northwestern Europe extending into regions of the Arctic Seas.
  • Neither El Niño nor La Niña was present across the central and eastern equatorial Pacific Ocean during November 2014. NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center estimates there is a 65 percent chance that El Niño will be present during the Northern Hemisphere winter and last into the Northern Hemisphere spring 2015.

Torrential rains dent Califonia’s worst drought in at least 1,200 years

December 11th, 2014 at 4:18 pm by under Weather

Torrential rains are falling across much of drought-scarred California, thanks to the wettest storm to affect the U.S. West Coast since at least October 2009. The heavy rains will put a noticeable dent in the state’s three-year drought, which was the worst 3-year drought drought period in at least the past 1,200 years. This startling figure comes from a study of tree rings by researchers Daniel Griffin and Kevin Anchukaitis, How unusual is the 2012-2014 California drought?, published in December 2014 in Geophysical Research Letters (press release and supplemental photos available here.) The scientists used tree ring data from blue oak trees in southern and central California to infer soil moisture levels, and thus drought. Blue oak tree ring widths are particularly sensitive to moisture changes. According to the authors, these tree rings show that 2014 was California’s worst single year for drought in at least 1,200 years. Interestingly, they found that the amount of precipitation during 2012 – 2014 was not the lowest on record–more extreme three-year low precipitation periods occurred in 1898 – 1900, and in 1527 – 1529. But because the period 2012 – 2014 was by far the warmest 3-year period in California history, these record warm temperatures “could have exacerbated the 2014 drought by approximately 36%,” they said. This bodes ill for the future, since global warming will bring an increase in the odds of record warm temperatures, and California has shown it can naturally have less precipitation than they had the past three years.

More detailed blog posts made this week on the research attempting to quantify the potential human contribution to California’s drought are available from Dana Nuccitelli at the Guardian’s “Climate Consensus – the 97% blog, and from Dr. Michael Mann at Huffington Post.

Yosemite Park waterfalls resume flowing
Yosemite National Park’s big waterfalls–Yosemite Falls, Bridalveil Fall, and Cascade Fall–resumed flowing again on December 3 after two days of significant rainfall in California’s Yosemite area. “To see Yosemite Falls coming to life this morning is truly exhilarating,” stated Don Neubacher, Yosemite National Park Superintendent on December 3. “This is a wonderful time to visit Yosemite National Park and the waterfalls just add to the magnificence of the park.” The falls slowed to a trickle in mid-July and were completely dry for most of August, September, October, and November due to California’s exceptional drought. You can view the falls on the Yosemite Falls webcam. Today’s rains are sure to make the waterfall roar big-time!

Moon and Mars appear close tonight

November 25th, 2014 at 4:12 pm by under Weather
2014-nov-25-mars-moon-night-sky-chart

Tonight – November 25, 2014 – the waxing crescent moon and the red planet Mars appear in the southwest sky at nightfall. Be sure to check out these worlds at early evening because they’ll follow the sun beneath the horizon by mid-evening.

While our Earth has one large ball-shaped moon, Mars has two tiny potato-shaped moons. Our moon lies at a mean distance of 384,400 kilometers (238,855 miles), but Mars’ two moons reside very close to the surface of the red planet. Deimos, the smaller of Mars’ two moons, is 23,460 kilometers (14,577 miles) from Mars.

Phobos, the larger, lies only 9,270 kilometers (5,670 miles) away. These distances are from the center of Mars. These moons lodge closer yet to Mars’ surface.

The closer a moon’s orbit, the faster the moon goes in its orbit around its parent planet. Deimos’ orbital period is 30 hours and 12 minutes. But the orbital period of Phobos, the closer moon, is only 7 hours and 39 minutes. Phobos is one of the very few moons in the solar system to orbit a planet in less time than its parent planet’s rotational period. Mars rotates full circle in 24 hours and 39 minutes, so one day on Mars is only slightly longer than one Earth day.

The synchronous orbit of two artificial satellites, whereby we're looking downward at the Earth's north pole, and the satellites are orbiting above the Earth's equator. At a distance of 35,786 kilometers above the Earth's surface (42,164 kilometers from the Earth's center), the satellites' orbital periods equal Earth's rotational period. Image credit: Wikipedia

The synchronous orbit of two artificial satellites. In this image, we’re looking downward at the Earth’s north pole, and the satellites are orbiting above the Earth’s equator. At a distance of 35,786 kilometers above the Earth’s surface (42,164 kilometers from the Earth’s center), the satellites’ orbital periods equal Earth’s rotational period. Image via Wikipedia

The distance at which a moon’s (or an artificial satellite’s) orbital period equals the planet’s rotational period is called the synchronous orbit radius. On Mars, this distance is 17,031 kilometers (10,583 miles) above Mars’ surface, or 20,427 kilometers (12,693 miles) from the center of Mars. Farther away than the synchronous orbit, the moon’s orbital period is longer than the planet’s rotational period. Below the synchronous orbit, the moon’s orbital period is shorter than the planet’s rotation.

Because Phobos circles Mars below the synchronous orbit distance, the orbit of this moon is decaying, with Phobos moving closer to Mars at the rate of about 1.8 meters (6 feet) per century. Astronomers believe Phobos is doomed to crash into Mars or to break up into a ring of rubble in about 50 million years.

At a distance of 60 Earth-radii (384,400 kilometers), our moon resides at roughly 9 times the Earth’s synchronous orbit radius of 6.6 Earth-radii (42,000 kilometers from the Earth’s center). At present, the moon is retreating from Earth at the rate of about 3.8 meters (12.5 feet) per century.

What do Phobos and Deimos look like from Mars?

Bottom line: On the evening of November 25, 2014, as darkness falls, watch for the picturesque pairing of the waxing crescent moon with the red planet Mars.

Severe storm risk and heavy rain expected Saturday

November 21st, 2014 at 2:51 pm by under Weather

Here is a breakdown of the potential severe weather threats for this Saturday, November 22nd. The greatest severe threat will be large hail, but damaging straight line winds and a few tornadoes are also possible. Some storm training is possible with locally heavy rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches possible. The severe threat will be primarily along and east of a Rocksprings to Carrizo Springs line and between the hours of Noon and 9 PM CST.

Rainfall totals through Saturday night are expected to range from light amounts across the western counties to near 1-2 inches across the northeastern counties. There could be isolated 4 inch rain totals for locations near Austin, Burnet and La Grange.
——————
From National Weather Service:
Click here to see the NWS morning briefing regarding Saturday’s storm.
HEADLINE
 
…Strong to Severe Thunderstorms Possible across South-Central Texas Saturday Afternoon and evening….Locally Heavy Rain Possible…
 
AREA OF CONCERN
All of South-Central Texas
IMPACTS
  • Strong to severe thunderstorms with large hail, damaging winds and heavy rainfall.
  • Isolated Tornadoes with a few Supercells possible.
  • Rainfall totals 1-2 inches, isolated 4 inches possible. Rain Rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour in heavier storms.
  • Mainly minor urban flooding possible. Higher totals may cause isolated flash flooding concerns.
TIMING
Showers along with a few thunderstorms will likely be ongoing across most of South Central Texas Saturday morning. Thunderstorms will become more widespread through the morning hours across the Hill Country, and during the afternoon hours along the Interstate 35 corridor and areas east of I-35. Main impact time of this system will be from Noon to 9 PM Saturday as strong to severe storms move east across the area. Threat will end along the I-35 corridor by 6 PM Saturday…while the threat will linger through the evening for the far eastern areas of South Central Texas.
CONFIDENCE
Moderate to High.
DISCUSSION
An approaching upper level storm system will interact with increasing moisture from the Gulf of Mexico to produce widespread showers and thunderstorms across South Central Texas on Saturday. Rain showers and even isolated thunderstorms are possible later tonight ahead of this system. The chance for rainfall and strong to severe storms will be greatest during Saturday afternoon and evening as forcing from an upper level disturbance moves across the region. Severe storms, some of which may be supercells, may produce large damaging hail, damaging wind gusts, and isolated tornadoes. All of South Central Texas is under a Slight risk of severe weather. Weather watches and warnings may be issued on Saturday. Be Prepared.
While it is rare to have severe weather in November, South Central Texas has seen its share of late Fall severe weather outbreaks. How significant this event becomes will be partly determined by how much sunshine we get on Saturday. If it stays cloudy and cooler, the threat for severe weather will go down. If temperatures warm due to a good amount of early sunshine, storms will be bigger and stronger, also leading to higher rain totals.
Additional updates will occur Saturday Morning.
