Tripping Into Spring

9 Apr 2014, 8:39 pm


Thanks to @MurrellsInletPh for the amazing picture below out of Murrells Inlet, SC! Looks like the birds were up chirping away on a bright Wednesday morning!

Here’s another great picture from @JMurdock09 from Chesapeake, OH. Note the two bright reflections on either side of the sun. Those are called Sundogs and form very similarly to that of a halo as sunlight is being reflected by plate-like ice crystals high in the atmosphere.

Here’s the Halo I spoke of in the picture above. Thanks to Al Ensley out of Lynchburg, VA for this picture. There’s an adage that states: “Ring around the moon or sun, then rain or snow will surely come.”

Tornadoes Earlier This Week

Here’s an interesting picture from Belhaven, NC from earlier this week. Thanks to @BryanYoungstar… sad to see the damage here, but thankfully nobody lost their life! Other than a few injuries and some damage, this particular tornado didn’t go on to claim any lives!

This particular tornado was confirmed as an EF2 tornado by NWS employees with a maximum wind speed of 130mph. Interestingly, the NWS also found EF1 tornado damage in Spalding county, GA.

8 to 14 Day Temperature Outlook

According to NOAA’s CPC, the 8 to 14 day temperature outlook (April 16-22) shows that the eastern part of the country will once again be below average, while the western third of the nation has a good chance of remaining above average.

Cha-Cha-Cha Changes….

Wednesday’s highs were running nearly 10F to 25F above average from the Southwest to the Midwest, however temperatures will take a nosedive into early next week as the jet stream takes another dip south of the border.

Mostly Quiet End of Week

After a very active start to the week, weather conditions have quieted down a bit. The weather outlook through Friday morning shows a clipper dropping through the Midwest and that’s about it. At this point, there are no major storms expected to be moving through the middle part of the country through the rest of the week!

Easter Week Storm?

The week leading up to Easter Sunday could be a little more interesting. A storm system looks to develop over the weekend/early next week. Keep in mind that there could be enough cold air on the northern side of this from some snow, but there could also be some severe weather on it’s south/southeastern flank. It appears to be shaping up as another classic spring storm… stay tuned for more details.

Thanks for checking in and have a great rest of your week. Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter @TNelsonWNTV

One response to “Tripping Into Spring

  1. I have been enjoying Weather Nation on Directv. You show weather all over, instead of programs with no weather reports. I like to check the weather at different times, day or night. And your station has what I want to see. My only concern is that I live on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and we don”t get enough information about our area when we are having bad weather. I am retired and do not have a smart phone, so I depend on TV for weather forcasts and warnings. Also want to let you know that I had 3.75 inches of rain this evening between 4pm and 9pm. I heard less amounts reported, but no reports from my area.
