Into The Storm Movie [was "Is anyone else worried that..."]

Jul 27, 2014 - 8:45 PM - by Marcus Diaz
Marcus Diaz's Avatar
"Into the Storm" will once again breath in a new era of young, reckless, idiotic chasers much like that when Storm Chasers was Discovery's biggest show? I wasn't chasing in the mid 90s but was that the case when Twister came out? Either way I think we will once again see new people in the chase scene whose only push to go out and chase was this new movie. Of course, we all know there's not going to be much realism to this movie. We all know that there's no way there's that many 747s at any... [Read More]

Just came across this: http://blog.ametsoc.org/news/new-sta...ind-estimates/

Haven't really seen anything else on this issue, but it appears significant changes may be coming to the EF-scale in the near future.

Issues with chasing cold frontal boundary setups?

Hey guys, I was out near Omaha yesterday chasing what I thought could have possibly been a somewhat promising setup. Obviously I was wrong. But I have a few questions.

First, I saw a few folks post up regarding the fact that it was a cold front setup, and that they had no interest in chasing it. Why is this? I know that cold fronts are faster movers than the rest of the boundaries, and that they seem more aggressive in triggering lift/convection. I would imagine you'd want this... [Read More]

2014-08-31 FCST: NE/IA/MN/KS

The GFS picked up on this day not too long ago and the NAM has thrown a wonky solution into the mix. As of right now, both models are showing a very broad, deep longwave traversing the northern CONUS with a shortwave impulse swinging out of the Rockies and into NE/KS. Very deep moisture is already in place across much of Nebraska and Iowa around 68-72F and should probably be in the upper-60s at least come Sunday morning. The 12Z NAM was mixing out a startlingly high amount of PBL moisture by... [Read More]

Mixing out of a layer

Aug 29, 2014 - 1:37 PM - by ADClope
ADClope's Avatar
I think I'm starting to understand this and why it matters, but like everything meteorology, it seems that just when I think I'm understanding something, I find out that I have no clue and I'm just scratching the surface.

But can someone run through the mixing out of a layer and why it's good or bad? Maybe that's way too broad of a question to ask. If so I apologize.

I would think that you'd rather the layer be well mixed as it may be more consistent that way and... [Read More]
