I've seen this mentioned at different times and wonder why?

Currently I am looking at Sunday in Eastern NE, NE KS and possibly Central MN. GFS looks better than NAM (Likely an entirely different topic of conversation), but I notice that I can pick various model runs eg 12Z 18Z 0Z 6Z 12Z.

Now, I would assume that the closest run to the time of initiation that you're looking for would be the best. But from what a few have said, some model runs are not as well... [Read More]

Mixing out of a layer

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]

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]

Live Streaming- Is it worth it?

I've been thinking about buying a GoPro or two for next year and live-streaming to try and make some side cash. I have a few questions for those of you who have experience with it.

1. Is it worth the trouble? I know it's around 55-100 per year for a membership to Severe Studios and maybe another 100 for software. Not to mention the money you spend on the GoPros. I imagine it's a hassle to keep it going during a chase day.

2. How much money can you actually make?... [Read More]
