Update about Deep South Twisters
 
April 27th Deadly Tornado Outbreak Southeast States
One of the deadliest tornado outbreaks in this country's history took place on Wednesday April 27th, with multiple long track, violent tornadoes leaving widespread destruction and nearly 300 people killed in their wake across six southeast states.  NWS Survey teams continue to assess the damage after the major tornado outbreak of historic proportions that impacted portions of Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia on Wednesday. Numerous storm surveys were conducted on Thursday, with more planned for Friday. So far, NWS has found evidence of at least six EF4 tornadoes, including one with estimated winds of 175 mph that occurred in Catoosa County, Georgia. Details...

As we look at the images of death and destruction on the news, it is a great time to review your own tornado preparedness and safety rules and to ensure you have an operating NOAA Weather Radio. You can find answers to frequently asked questions about tornadoes here.

Additional information on specific tornadoes will become available on the following websites over the next few days...

 NWS Atlanta, GA

 NWS Birmingham, AL

 NWS Huntsville, AL

 NWS Memphis, TN

 NWS Jackson, MS

The maps below are plots of severe thunderstorm and tornado reports logged at the Storm Prediction Center from the outbreak. (Click on map for a text listing of the reports).

 

In other news hope you enjoy the weekend. Tomorrow will be windy but at least it will be dry! Sunday look for a chance for some showers early in the morning then dry for a few hours before a chance for some evening showers return. Monday at 4:30 I will be live from our Main Street Monday town so tune or keep an eye on your downtown to see if your town is in the spotlight!
 
See ya Monday!

Prayers go out to the people in the Deep South….
What a night in weather across the Deep South yesterday. SPC (Storm Prediction Center) shows 179 tornado reports. Please keep the people in the south and all up and down the east coast in your prayers as they recover from this tragic event. Look at the Tornado reports from Upstate New York to Arkansas.

 

The atmosphere was set up perfectly for this event to break out. Early in the day the SPC issued a high risk for N. Alabama and a high risk outlooks don't get issued very often. There was warm Gulf air being pulled to the north by an area of Low pressure that was deepening in W. Tennessee and cold air slamming to the south. The jet stream was screaming across Arkansas, Mississippi and into N. Alabama. The right exit region of the jet was located across N. Alabama and into S. Tennessee. When you are in that part of the jet the wind slows and then starts to shoot up very rapidly and that will lead to strong storms to develop. The stronger the winds blow above the surface the more lift is created. While this was happening winds aloft where coming from different directions which caused storms to rotate very violently and as the meso-cyclone (thunderstorm) developed they started spinning and with that much helicity around it had all the ingredients for long track tornadoes and that's what happened. 

 

Here is an article I found that really describes yesterday's events.

 

By GREG BLUESTEIN and HOLBROOK MOHR, Associated Press Greg Bluestein And Holbrook Mohr, Associated Press – 54 mins ago

PLEASANT GROVE, Ala. – Firefighters searched one splintered pile after another for survivors Thursday, combing the remains of houses and neighborhoods pulverized by the nation's deadliest tornado outbreak in almost four decades. At least 280 people were killed across six states — more than two-thirds of them in Alabama, where large cities bore the half-mile-wide scars the twisters left behind.

The death toll from Wednesday's storms seems out of a bygone era, before Doppler radar and pinpoint satellite forecasts were around to warn communities of severe weather. Residents were told the tornadoes were coming up to 24 minutes ahead of time, but they were just too wide, too powerful and too locked onto populated areas to avoid a horrifying body count.

"These were the most intense super-cell thunderstorms that I think anybody who was out there forecasting has ever seen," said meteorologist Greg Carbin at the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla.

"If you experienced a direct hit from one of these, you'd have to be in a reinforced room, storm shelter or underground" to survive, Carbin said.

The storms seemed to hug the interstate highways as they barreled along like runaway trucks, obliterating neighborhoods or even entire towns from Tuscaloosa to Bristol, Va. One family rode out the disaster in the basement of a funeral home, another by huddling in a tanning bed.

In Concord, a small town outside Birmingham that was ravaged by a tornado, Randy Guyton's family got a phone call from a friend warning them to take cover. They rushed to the basement garage, piled into a Honda Ridgeline and listened to the roar as the twister devoured the house in seconds. Afterward, they saw daylight through the shards of their home and scrambled out.

"The whole house caved in on top of that car," he said. "Other than my boy screaming to the Lord to save us, being in that car is what saved us."

Son Justin remembers the dingy white cloud moving quickly toward the house.

"To me it sounded like destruction," the 22-year-old said. "It was a mean, mean roar. It was awful."

At least three people died in a Pleasant Grove subdivision southwest of Birmingham, where residents trickled back Thursday to survey the damage. Greg Harrison's neighborhood was somehow unscathed, but he remains haunted by the wind, thunder and lightning as they built to a crescendo, then suddenly stopped.

"Sick is what I feel," he said. "This is what you see in Oklahoma and Kansas. Not here. Not in the South."

Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley said his state had confirmed 194 deaths. There were 33 deaths in Mississippi, 33 in Tennessee, 14 in Georgia, five in Virginia and one in Kentucky. Hundreds if not thousands of people were injured — 600 in Tuscaloosa alone.

Some of the worst damage was about 50 miles southwest of Pleasant Grove in Tuscaloosa, a city of more than 83,000 that is home to the University of Alabama. The storms destroyed the city's emergency management center, so the school's Bryant-Denny Stadium was turned into a makeshift one. School officials said two students were killed, though they did not say how they died. Finals were canceled and commencement was postponed.

A tower-mounted news camera there captured images of an astonishingly thick, powerful tornado flinging debris, as it leveled neighborhoods.

That twister and others Wednesday were several times more severe than a typical tornado, which is hundreds of yards wide, has winds around 100 mph and stays on the ground for a few miles, said research meteorologist Harold Brooks at the Storm Prediction Center.

"There's a pretty good chance some of these were a mile wide, on the ground for tens of miles and had wind speeds over 200 mph," he said.

The loss of life is the greatest from an outbreak of U.S. tornadoes since April 1974, when 329 people were kill, ed by a storm that swept across 13 Southern and Midwestern states.

Brooks said the tornado that struck Tuscaloosa could be an EF5 — the strongest category of tornado, with winds of more than 200 mph — and was at least the second-highest category, an EF4.

Search and rescue teams fanned out to dig through the rubble of devastated communities that bore eerie similarities to the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, when town after town lay flattened for nearly 90 miles.

In Phil Campbell, a small town of 1,000 in northwest Alabama where 26 people died, the grocery store, gas stations and medical clinic were destroyed by a tornado that Mayor Jerry Mays estimated was a half-mile wide and traveled some 20 miles.

"We've lost everything. Let's just say it like it is," Mays said. "I'm afraid we might have some suicides because of this."

President Barack Obama said he would travel to Alabama , on Friday to view storm damage and meet Gov. Robert Bentley and affected families. As many as a million homes and businesses there were without power, and Bentley said 2,000 National Guard troops had been activated to help. The governors of Mississippi and Georgia also issued emergency declarations for parts of their states.

"We can't control when or where a terrible storm may strike, but we can control how we respond to it," Obama said. "And I want every American who has been affected by this disaster to know that the federal government will do everything we can to help you recover and we will stand with you as you rebuild."

The storm prediction center said it received 164 tornado reports around the region, but some tornadoes were probably reported multiple times and it could take days to get a final count.

In fact, Brooks said 50 to 60 reports — from the Mississippi-Alabama line, through Tuscaloosa , and Birmingham and into Georgia and southwestern Tennessee — might end up being a single tornado. If that's true its path would be one of the longest on record for a twister, rivaling a 1925 tornado that raged for 219 miles.

Brooks said the weather service was able to provide about 24 minutes' notice before the twisters hit.

"It was a well-forecasted event," Brooks said. "People were talking about this week being a big week a week ago."

Gov. Bentley said forecasters did a good job alerting people, but there's only so much they can do to help people prepare.

Carbin, the meteorologist, noted that the warning gave residents enough time to hunker down, but not enough for them to safely leave the area.

"You've got half an hour to evacuate the north side of Tuscaloosa. How do you do that and when do you do that? Knowing there's a tornado on the ground right now and the conditions in advance of it, you may inadvertently put people in harm's way," he said.

Officials said at least 13 died in Smithville, Miss., where devastating winds ripped open the police station, post office, city hall and an industrial park with several furniture factories. Pieces of tin were twined high around the legs of a blue water tower, and the Piggly Wiggly grocery store was, gutted.

"It's like the town is just gone," said 24-year-old Jessica Monaghan, wiping away tears as she toted 9-month-old son Slade Scott. The baby's father, Tupelo firefighter Tyler Scott, was at work when the warning came on the TV.

"It said be ready in 10 minutes, but about that time, it was there," Monaghan said. She, Slade and the family's cat survived by hiding in a closet.

At Smithville Cemetery, even the dead were not spared: Tombstones dating to the 1800s, including some of Civil War soldiers, lay broken on the ground. Brothers Kenny and Paul Long dragged their youngest brother's headstone back to its proper place.

Unlike many neighboring towns, Kenny Long said, Smithville had no storm shelter.

"You have warnings," Long said, "but where do you go?"

Some fled to the sturdy center section of Smithville Baptist Church. Pastor Wes White said they clung to each other and anything they could reach, a single "mass of humanity" as the building disintegrated around them.

The second story is gone, the walls collapsed, but no one there was seri, ously hurt. The choir robes remained in place, perfectly white.

Seven people were killed in Georgia's Catoosa County, including Ringgold, where a suspected tornado flattened about a dozen buildings and trapped an unknown number of people.

"It happened so fast I couldn't think at all," said Tom Rose, an Illinois truck driver whose vehicle was blown off the road at I-75 North in Ringgold, near the Tennessee line.

Catoosa County Sheriff Phil Summers said several residential areas had "nothing but foundations left," and that some people reported missing had yet to be found.

In Trenton, Ga., nearly two dozen people took shelter in an Ace Hardware store, i, ncluding a couple walking by when an employee emerged and told them to take cover immediately.

Lisa Rice, owner of S&L Tans in Trenton, survived by climbing into a tanning bed with her two daughters. Stormy, 19, and Sky, 21.

"We got in it and closed it on top of us," Rice said. "Sky said, `We're going to die.' But, I said, `No, just pray. Just pray, just pray, just pray.'"

For 30 seconds, wind rushed around the bed and debris flew as wind tore off the roof.

"Then it just stopped. It got real quiet. We waited a few minutes and then opened up the bed and we saw daylight," she said.

The badly damaged Moore Funeral Home, meanwhile, sheltered the woman who cleans Larry Moore's family business. When the first of three storms hit and uprooted trees in her yard, she figured the funeral home would be a safer place for her two children. As shingles began sailing past the window, she headed for the basement.

"That's what saved her, I guess," Moore said. "It was over in just a matter of seconds. She called 911 and emergency crews had to help her get out."

The storm system spread destruction from Texas to New York, where dozens of roads were flooded or washed out.

In a large section of eastern Tennessee, officials were looking for survivors and assessing damage. In hard-hit Apison, an unincorporated community near the Georgia state line where eight people died, about 150 volunteers helped with the search.

It was unclear how high the death toll could rise. In Mississippi, Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson and a crew of deputies and inmates searched the rubble, , recovering five bodies and marking homes that still had bodies inside with two large orange Xs.

"I've never seen anything like this," Johnson said. "This is something that no one can prepare for."

rain until Saturday late afternoon. Looking at the latest model run of the GFS it's trying to push the heaviest rains across southern Illinois and in the Ohio Valley which is good for us but not what they need there. I might have to add a chance for showers to hold into early Sunday as the models are trying to slow the system down by about 12 hours. I will hold off on that tonight but we will have a better handle on the situation by tomorrow. Farmers we are trying to dry it out for you just be patient and the good Lord will deliver us weather to get the crops in the fields.    Sizzle Out!

Rainy pattern looks to continue…

The reason for all the active weather can be contributed to the placement of the jet stream. This river of air has been moving back and forth over us with impulses of energy moving along it. This produces periods of enhanced lift in the atmosphere over central Illinois and when we get into the warm sector moisture is pushed north and when lifted it produces the heavy rains. Below is the (QPF) Quantitative Precipitation Forecast from the HPC. The Ohio Valley again is the target as lows will develop and push the jet to the north allowing warm air to surge in and rise. This graphic shows areas that could see as much as 7" to 8" of rain across Arkansas and W. Kentucky and W. Tennessee. These areas are experiencing flooding already and this will continue to aggravate that problem. Here in the CI we could see between 1" to 2" of rain in our SE counties overnight and then looks like a 48 hour window of dry weather coming in Thursday and Friday!

 

I hope you had a great Easter weekend even though the weather wasn't so friendly. Ashley and I took off for Chicago on Friday and stayed through Saturday evening. The weather turned out to be nice which Chicago weather in April can change suddenly. We went and saw Blue Man Group on Friday night and if you haven't seen these guys you should. The show was funny and also very entertaining. Then on Saturday we headed up to Wrigley to watch a Cubs game and it was a great game. The Cubs took the lead early but with the wind blowing out the lead vanished quickly but in the 8th inning the Cubs came back and never relinquishes that lead. I couldn't have asked for a better game to attend. Stay dry these next couple of days as looking at the extended models its trying to bust us out of this rainy pattern which is good news for the farmers trying to get their crops in the ground.

 

Sizzle Out!

What a night.....

 

We watched the storms start to fire across Missouri late in the afternoon and then the warnings for counties along the Mississippi started to get issued. The super cell that prompted those warning took a right turn as it moved toward central Illinois. There were reports of tornadoes across Macoupin and Montgomery counties. Here is the storm survey in Girard tornado from the NWS office out of St. Louis.

What a weather day in Illinois...

Depending on where you live in the state today depends on what type of weather you saw. A daily snowfall record was set this morning at Chicago O'Hare airport of .6" of snow. That breaks the old record of .4" in 1910. Other places picking up snow this morning are listed below....

2.7" Gurnee

2.4" Waukegan

1.8" Rockton

1.6" Palatine

.5" Oak Park

While in the downstate areas of the state it was a different story with mild temps. Here is a break down from north to south across Illinois this morning....

At 8 AM

O'Hare: 32

Decatur: 49

Mattoon: 59

Carbondale: 61

That is almost a 30 degree difference in just about 350 miles. Places across Wisconsin could see even more snow during the day tomorrow but across central Illinois we could see some strong storms. This is a great example of springtime weather in the Midwest. What caused this temperature difference in the state is a stationary boundary which has been parked across central Illinois all afternoon and has kept this huge temperature divide going all day. As a wave moves along this boundary this morning that is what kicked off the snow in the Chicagoland area.

This afternoon at 5pm here where the temps reports...

O' Hare: 38

Decatur: 60

Mattoon: 66

Carbondale: 71

Cario: 75

Stay tuned to Stormcenter 17 tomorrow in case the weather turns rough in the evening.

Sizzle Out!

Baseball and Weather...

What do you think about Barry Bonds and his trial? If we go back to baseball during the steroid era as they have started to call it wasn't it exciting? I know it's not fair to cheat at anything you do but if it wasn't for Sammy Sosa and Mark McGuire in the 90's what would baseball be like today? These are just a few questions I have been pondering following the whole Barry Bonds trial. I personal think it's a waist of tax payer dollars to take a few of these guys to trial for failing to tell congress the whole truth. When you think about it congress never tells us the whole truth. We send people into office to work of us the American people but some choose to go there for themselves and they are driven by their political parties' motives, . I find it interesting that they can do it and get away with it and not have to answer to certain questions but when a baseball player does it they are sent to trial. I truly believe baseball would not have rebounded back to where it is total if it wasn't for the exciting home run races in the 90's and then when Bond's broke the record again. Baseball is an amazing sport and I hope that it isn't tainted again like it has been in the past decade.

Moving on to the weather how about the day we had today! After a couple of clouds this morning the sun came out this afternoon and really started to warm the temperatures up. Everyone in central Illinois made it into the 70's for highs! All of this is going to change as we will see a strong low pressure system push into central Illinois over the next 24 hours and bring a round of showers and storms to the area by Friday morning. Some of these storms could be strong so once again we will keep an eye on things for you here at Stormcenter 17. I think the strongest storms will be along and to the south of I-70 but SPC (Storm Prediction Center) brings the slight risk all the way up to I-72. Below is the map from, SPC as of 7 PM Thursday evening. Our RPM model, which is our in house, model shows only about .2 to half of an inch of precipitation out of this storm. While the GFS is bring in around .5 to 1" of total QPF. I personally think we might see a half to three quarters of an inch of total precipitation by Friday night and as showers linger into Saturday those might add another .1 to .2" inch of precipitation. A dry slot should develop which happens when a low pressure, like the one moving in, occludes it will draw up dry air and cause a brief lull in the precipitation. Once the low passes by we will see some wrap around moisture cause showers and also usher in cooler air for the day on Saturday.

 

 Sizzle Out!

Active weather pattern setting up...

 We had another beautiful spring afternoon across the CI today. Temps ranged from the upper 60's to the lower 70's! Tomorrow we will again see warm air surge across the area. A mid-latitude cyclone (low pressure system) is developing across the plains today and will work in our direction through out the day tomorrow. We should start with a lot of sunshine but by the end of the afternoon the clouds will start to roll in. I think the day tomorrow will remain dry but by Friday as this low tracks into central Illinois it will kick off a round of showers and thunderstorms and some could be strong. The strongest of these storms should occur along and to the south of Il-16 or on a line from Pairs, through Mattoon, to Pana and south. I am not ruling out some stronger storms to the north of that line but the main threat would be from some hail. The largest hail expected out of these could get as large as a quarter. The SPC has placed SE Illinois in a slight risk. We should see some wrap around showers and clouds stay around during the day on Saturday but I think by Saturday evening the shower should move off to the east in time for Sunday. Here is the GFS model and its output of surface temperatures at 1 pm. It shows the cold air caused by the showers and clouds plus the NW flow.

 

These cooler temperatures will be short lived as warmer air will return bringing our temperatures back to normal with highs next week in the 60's. The active pattern will bring another chance for shower into the CI by Tuesday and Wednesday next week. Looking out to day 10 or next Saturday the GFS tries to bring in another system that could bring a return chance for showers and few storms for Saturday the 23rd.

 

Sizzle Out!

Congrats to my wife Ashley!!!!

I had to blog about this great news today because my wife Ashley just passed her comprehensive exams, today! She used to be our 10 pm producer here at the station and decided to go back to school full time and get her master's degree in Family Consumer Sciences. I have been her biggest cheerleader the whole time she has been in school and I will always remain that with what ever she decides to do. I am so proud of her for taking the chance to back and get her masters. She has carried a 4.0 (A average) through out grad school! If you read this Ash I want you to know how proud I am of you and congratulations.

Enjoy the next couple of days with this sun and mild temperatures because changes are headed our way. Storms are possible starting Thursday night through the day on Friday. Once the cold front crosses the area on Friday temperatures will crash and wrap around clouds and showers will keep high in the upper 40's for Saturday.

Sizzle Out!

A fun Saturday but a noisy Sunday....

 

It was a fun weekend at least to start out. The weather on Saturday was amazing with temps in the upper 70's and low 80's with all that sun. I decided to go out and swing the sticks with my brother in Charleston. It was my second time out this season and it was a struggle but looking at the score card it wasn't terrible a 79. It was just nice to get out and enjoy the warmth and sun after such a cold and cloudy winter. Then on Saturday evening Ash and I headed out to a new place in Mattoon with Greg Trumbold and his girl called the Custom Smokehouse bar and grill. It used to be Gunner Bucks then it wa, s Joe's but if you are looking for a great meal you should head there. We both had pulled pork and the meat melted in our mouths plus the bbq sauce was amazing. The chicken wings are fantastic as well. The prices are very reasonable especially for the amount and quality of the food. It would be worth your drive to Mattoon to check it out. After dinner and some drinks we finally got to meet our neighbors across the street. It, was so nice out that evening that it was perfect for a fire in the back yard.

 

Then along came Sunday. Warm and windy, well windy might be an understatement. A line of storms started to fire along a boundary that stretched from Wisconsin to N. Arkansas. We saw the storms move across the area but nothing in the way, of major damage was reported. What a light show it was though as they roared across the area. The thing that sticks out in my mind with these storms was the speed at which they were moving. Along the line that developed there was a cell that moved across Macoupin county at 85 mph. I can never remember ever seeing a storm move that fast in the 9 years I have been here at Stormcenter 17. Here are the reports from the storms last night across the county. Wisconsin simply got it handed yesterday with tornadoes and high winds. I hope you enjoy the weather over the next couple of days because a huge cool down is headed our way for the weekend.

Hello warmer temps….

How does temps in the 80's over the weekend sound? We have has a stationary boundary across the Midwest for the past several days. We have seen little waves move along that boundary which has brought us some showers last night into this morning. This front will move into northern Illinois tomorrow which will lead to temps being allowed to soar into the 80's across the area. The warmth will pump in here and along with that warm moisture will push in as well. We will see a storm system develop in the plains this weekend and a cold front will approach the area Sunday evening. I am expecting the strongest storms to be in the Illinois River Valley and across northwestern Illinois. The reason I am expecting that area to be the focus for supercell development is we should see some vertical shear which will enhance rotating supercell thunderstorms and it will also be the focus for the strongest updrafts. When the storms move into our part of the state I think we will see a long linear line of storms. This will be caused by frontal lift as the cold air comes slamming into the warm buoyant air. That would mean our primary threat will be damaging winds and some hail. The moral of the story is keep an eye to the sky and TV tuned to WAND Stormcenter 17 Sunday evening into early Monday morning.

 

 

Below is the surface data taken at 6 pm on Friday evening showing temps ranging from the mid 40's at O'Hare to the lower 80's in southern Illinois. You can pick out where the front is parked by looking at the winds. Winds to the south of the front are out of the south while to the north the winds are from the north. The front sits just to the north of Marion into Evansville this evening. 

 

Have a great weekend and I will see you all on Sunday evening at 5 and 10 pm

Sizzle Out!

Happy mid-week!!!!

Wednesday's are always great because the work week is half way! I have really enjoyed my time this week working the morning show with Chris and Liz. Like I said yesterday it has really helped to recharge the batteries.

The latest RPM model shows a few clouds during the day across the area. The weak wave continues to push across southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois bringing some light showers across that area. We will stay dry today thanks to high pressure anchored in the SE US. It's going to be an active week in the weather with chances for showers and storms Thursday evening into Friday morning. Then we will have a chance for some isolated showers and storms both Saturday and Sunday but temps over the weekend will be in the upper 70's to low 80's.

During the AM show on our facebook page we asked you where you would like to go on vacation. It got me thinking at it also brought up some good memories of all the places that I have been fortunate to visit. I think my favorite spot is the Dominican Republic (Punta Cana). The beaches there were amazing and the water was so clear and warm. I really want to head to Germany and trace my family heritage. We have it nailed down on one side to the exact town where my family hails from. Plus just going to Europe in general would be awesome because of all the history. Where do you want to go? What is your dream vacation? Just some thoughts to get us to the weekend or something to research to pass the time today! See all of you back on the evening show tomorrow!

Tuesday equals a cold start….

It has been a cool start to our Tuesday but once the sun comes up it will really start to warm those temps. At 6 am when I was writing this it were 33 in Springfield, 35 in Decatur, and 33 in Champaign while other areas where in the lower to middle 30's. The skies really cleared this morning around 2 am and that allowed these temps to fall.

It has been fun the past couple mornings filling in for Greg. Sometime you just need a little change in your schedule. We are all creatures of habit and sometimes breaking up the routine is good to give the old battery a recharge! It was odd to be home last night in the evening but was so nice to be able to spend the evening with Ashley. That is the hardest thing about working at night is I don't get to go have dinner at home or get to go out in the evening and hang out when most people are able to. Its just part of being in TV and I knew that when I got into this career. I have really enjoyed working with Chris and Liz and the station is going to miss Chris when he is gone. I really think Chris has done an outstanding job and has grown leaps and bounds over his time here. I want to wish him luck as he moves back to  The Evergreen State of Washington. Good luck Chris!

Have a great Tuesday and temps by Friday will be into the 70's!!!!!

What a weekend!!!!

This had to be one of the best weekends if you're a sports fan! The final 4 started this weekend with a huge hype because we had two Cinderella stories. Who would have seen this coming when VCU plays Butler for the right to make it to the National Championship game? The UCONN and Kentucky game on the other hand that was terrible basketball. I have mentioned at the end of the Big East Tourny that UCONN looked good coming out and I thought they could make a run. They have made a run but a lot further then I thought. I like Butler over UCONN tonight for the title but its going to be a close one.

The other good news this weekend is baseball is back! Even though the Cubs are 1 and 2 after Carlos Marmol's blown save and not to mention Castors throwing error in the top of the 9th it's still amazing to watch baseball. Ashley and I will be headed to the Friendly Confines in a couple weeks to watch a game! There is no better place to spend an afternoon then at a baseball game with a hot dog, bag of peanuts, a cold beverage and your wife then at Wrigley Field. I know some of you out there would argue but for me that's a perfect Saturday.

Hello Monday morni, ng and as I write this blog entry this morning showers and storms are still rolling across the area. The storms really fired up across Iowa and Missouri last night but as they moved into central Illinois they encountered a capped atmosphere. This means that the storms weren't going to be as strong. This "cap" helps to limit the severity of the storms and sometime can prevent them from forming. In this case the storms had already developed but it helped to cause them to weaken across our area. We still are getting some decent rain out of the showers and storms this morning but the damage will be done in the temperature category this afternoon. We will see our high recorded today right around midnight and before the days is out don't be surprised to see temps in the 40's. The cool air won't last long as a return to the 70's is only a couple days away. Looking at the latest run of the GFS, it's trying to bring in some strong storms Saturday evening across central Illinois. This is a long ways off but something I will keep a close eye on.

Have a great Monday and let's look forward to the return of the 70's….

Happy Friday and Hello Opening Day!!!

 

The home opening for the Cubs today didn't have a happy ending but it was so great to hear and see baseball. It's been a long winter and with April, 1st comes the renewed hope of a Cub's winning season and a World Series!?! While I have baseball on the brain I will be in the St. Louis area tomorrow umpiring a game at GCS Bank Park in Suaget. Okaw Valley plays Bunker Hill and I am lucky enough to be one of the umps.

I had the chance to speak with some young people in Marshall Illinois this m, orning at a career day. They host this for the high school kids every couple of years and I got to talk about what I do and why I decided to go into this field. I think that is one my most favorite parts of this job. I want to see every person succeed in life. If you set your mind to anything, you can accomplish amazing things in this short life we have. I always wanted to be a meteorologist and its fun to actually achieve my childhood dream!

 

Have a great weekend and enjoy the sun and warm temps tomorrow!

See you guys Monday morning as I will be on the morning show that day.
