Update on Birmingham Weather Radio

| 12:08 pm April 24, 2014

The National Weather Service has been working diligently to repair serious equipment with the Birmingham NOAA Weather Radio broadcasting from Red Mountain overlooking downtown Birmingham. Through some extraordinary measures, they have been able to get the broadcast back on the air on a limited basis. I’ve posted their statement below for all the information.

WeatherBrains 430: It’s in the Can

| 5:15 am April 22, 2014

WeatherBrains Episode 430 is now online (April 21, 2014). If you are crazy about weather, this is THE netcast audio program for you!

Dr. Louis Uccellini, Director of the NWSYou can’t get much higher in the weather enterprise than tonight’s Guest WeatherBrain. He might well be the most powerful man in weather. He is in charge of the weather service that is the envy of the world. Officially, he is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Assistant Administrator for Weather Services and Director of the National Weather Service. Join us in welcoming Dr. Louis Uccellini to WeatherBrains. Our discussion with Dr. Uccellini actually took place last week in a pre-recorded interview that is airing tonight. As you might imagine, getting the schedule of this man and that of the WeatherBrains crew together was a major undertaking.

Other discussions in this weekly podcast include topics like:

  • Extremes: 102 at Death Valley, CA, and 15 at Bodie State Park, CA
  • Hurricane Conference going on in Florida
  • Severe weather ongoing in Texas
  • and more!
  • Our email bag officer is on a hot date tonight, so no mail bag segment.

    From The Weather Center:

    WeatherBrains 101: We’re going to take a look at something that most weather enthusiasts already know something about. NOAA Weather Radio is a nationwide system that provides the baseline for getting severe weather information. So we take a look at some of the basics to weather radio.

    TWIWH: Bill Murray looks back at the week of April 20th.

    Listener SurveyListener Surveys: Okay, we continue to drive this topic into the ground, but we really do like to hear from you. Many thanks to everyone who has taken the time to fill out the Listener Survey. The survey takes just a minute or two to complete and provides us with an opportunity to learn where you are and hear your thoughts and comments on the show. Click here to take the survey.

    Birmingham NOAA Weather Radio Down

    | 9:53 am April 21, 2014

    The National Weather Service posted the message below this morning, so if you listen to the NOAA Weather Radio broadcast from the Birmingham transmitter, it is currently off the air. Due to the overlap in transmitter coverage, you may be able to pick up another nearby broadcast. But as noted in the message, that alternative transmitter may not broadcast warnings for your county. Fortunately, showers and perhaps an isolated thunderstorm tomorrow are not expected to be severe.

    Weather Radio Programming – Bessemer

    | 9:15 am April 21, 2014

    The ABC 3340 Weather Team will be helping folks program their weather radios this coming Wednesday at the Publix store on Promenade Parkway in Bessemer from 3:30 to 6:30 pm. If you have a weather radio – or need to purchase a new weather radio – and you want to be sure it is programmed correctly, we can help. Just bring it by Publix in Bessemer this coming Wednesday, and ABC 3340 folks will be there to make sure you are ready for whatever Spring 2014 throws at us.

    FS-WX-RADIO-BESSEMER-4-23-2014

    As an added bonus, you can see James Spann broadcasting the weather live from there or see our new full-sized cardboard cut out of him!

    Bessemer not convenient? We’ll also be making stops in Pell City at Publix on April 30, in Gadsden at Academy Sports on May 7, and in Hoover at Publix on May 14.

    Hope to see you there.

    Gorgeous Easter Sunday

    | 7:10 am April 20, 2014

    An all new edition of the ABC 33/40 Weather Xtreme video is available in the player on the right sidebar of the blog. You can subscribe to the Weather Xtreme video on iTunes by clicking here.

    As Ryan Stinnett noted in the forecast this morning, you could not order a better day than what we expect to see across Central Alabama today. Sunshine will be in full supply and we expect the afternoon highs to climb into the middle and upper 70s with comfortably low humidity to add to the wonderful conditions.

    Monday will be a transition day as we see clouds increase ahead of the next front approaching the area from the northwest. That front should move into and across Central Alabama Tuesday bringing us showers and perhaps a little thunder. Moisture appears to be somewhat limited, so while the likelihood of showers is very high, the scattered nature of them will mean that some folks won’t get wet at all and some could see a half inch of rain. The surface and upper level low that moved off the Southeast US coast yesterday will help to keep a strong southerly return flow from developing thus limiting the amount of moisture available. But moisture will be sufficient for scattered showers as precipitable water values climb close to 1.5 inches.

    Cool 500 millibar temperatures on Tuesday could help to produce thunderstorms with hail. Instability values are somewhat marginal for really strong updrafts, so I do not expect to see any organized severe weather.

    The upper trough moves quickly east allowing an upper ridge to build into the eastern third of the country. This will dry us out for Wednesday and Thursday. But while the air mass will be drier, we won’t see any appreciable lowering of the temperatures with a limited northwesterly flow that does not go very far north, so no real air mass change.

    The big forecast problem will be dealing with the end of the week and into the weekend. The GFS keeps the ridge fairly strong so that the traveling weather systems are expected to remain well north of us. That puts us into a weakened pattern where the fronts will drag into the area with sufficient moisture for scattered showers driven primarily by daytime heating. While the best chance for showers appears to come on Friday, the front becomes stationary in the area keeping us susceptible to scattered showers into the weekend. Without a strong push, the front is not likely to bring much in the way of an air mass change so temperatures will remain warm with highs around 80 or so.

    Looking out into voodoo country, the GFS had a really strong Omega ridge developing at the end of April. While the pattern remains similar, the latest GFS run is more realistic in the look of the ridge. A strong upper trough approaches the eastern US on May 1, which could signal a round of severe storms for the Southeast US. By May 5th, the GFS shows the westerlies well north of us putting us into the same issue of fronts dragging into the area without much strength.

    And you can follow news and weather updates from ABC 33/40 on Twitter here. Stay in the know by following the whole gang – here’s the list…

    Thanks for staying tuned to the Weather Xtreme Video. I’ll be handling the weather duties on ABC 3340 at 5 and 10 pm today, so catch the latest news and weather forecast then. James Spann will be back with the next video first thing Monday morning. Happy Easter and Godspeed.

    Rainfall Summary

    | 7:56 am April 19, 2014

    Here is a summary of the rainfall from a variety of reporting stations for the last 48 hours as prepared by the National Weather Service in Birmingham. As you can see from the observed totals, there was a pretty steep gradient in rainfall amounts from Jefferson County southeastward toward Dothan with Barbour County coming in with totals approaching 5 inches.

    Not Your Typical Spring

    | 7:38 am April 19, 2014

    An all new edition of the ABC 33/40 Weather Xtreme video is available in the player on the right sidebar of the blog. You can subscribe to the Weather Xtreme video on iTunes by clicking here.

    The overall weather pattern continues to be an active one, but I sure would not classify this month as your typical April! The high temperature at the Birmingham Shuttlesworth International Airport yesterday barely made it out of the 50s with a 61 which is 14 degrees below our seasonal average for this date. The low for the day was only 1 degree above, so we saw very little diurnal change in the temperature. Plus we got a bit more rain bringing us to a total which is nearly 4 inches above the 30-year average rainfall for the month – with 11 days still left to go.

    The surface low along with the upper level cold core low which brought us the soaking rain yesterday continues to bring rain to much of the eastern half of Alabama this morning. Both lows should continue to push eastward, so we should see a slow decrease in the light rain which is now falling over areas generally east of Interstate 65. Temperatures will be problematic with lower 70s possible from Birmingham westward while areas east of Birmingham could remain shrouded in clouds holding temperatures in the 60s.

    Surface high pressure will fill in behind the surface and upper lows on Sunday bringing us a beautiful Easter Sunday. We’ll see a few late morning and afternoon clouds, but the sunshine will feel good with temperatures climbing into the middle 70s for most of us.

    Monday will be a transitional day with clouds on the increase ahead of the next upper trough and surface cold front. The front should pass through Central Alabama on Tuesday bringing us the next good chance of showers. The afternoon highs should reach the upper 70s. The front should move through briskly as the upper trough moves quickly off the East Coast and we come under ridging aloft for Wednesday and Thursday. Yet another strong upper trough approaches Alabama on Thursday and Friday bringing another cold front into the picture. Timing of this system seems to befuddle the models as the GFS has continued to oscillate back and forth between Friday and Saturday on the frontal passage and attendant rain chances. The GFS is also more aggressive with the rain chances and the amounts than the European, so the forecast remains somewhat fluid at the moment. But whether it is Friday or Saturday, it looks like we’ll have a reasonably good chance at some showers before clearing out for next Sunday. Temperatures appear to be seasonal with highs in the upper 70s and morning lows mainly in the 50s.

    Looking into voodoo country, I’d describe the model solutions as complex. Another shot at rain comes around the 29th and then the GFS goes off the scale with a huge Omega block ridge situated along the Mississippi River. The ridge is so strong it does seem exaggerated, so my confidence in the solution is pretty low. The Omega ridge pattern evolves by May 4th with a trough undercutting the huge ridge. Definitely a stay tuned on this one situation.

    A Wet April – So Far

    | 9:06 am April 15, 2014

    I’m sure it is no surprise to anyone in Central Alabama that April has been wet. So just how wet has it been? Seems like a fair question considering we are tipping over the mid point of the month which also happens to be the dreaded tax filing day! So, while some are rushing to get their tax figures figured, how does April shape up on rainfall?

    Here is a table showing the rainfall through April 14th from the primary observing sites in North and Central Alabama, the ranking of that rainfall for 2014, and the record rainfall and year of that record. All of this data comes from published reports and databases from the National Weather Service in Birmingham.

    Since we are at the halfway point in the month, if the second half of the month is as rainy as the first half, we will likely see most observing sites reaching values putting April, 2014, into the top 15 of our all time wettest Aprils.

    City Rainfall Ranking Record/Year
    Birmingham 6.20″ 30th 13.75″/1979
    Tuscaloosa 6.22″ 16th 14.41″/1979
    Anniston 5.13″ 20th 17.30″/1979
    Calera 6.31″ Unknown Unknown
    Montgomery 5.84″ 33rd 15.94″/1912
    Muscle Shoals 3.19″ 39th 12.81″/1983
    Huntsville 3.77″ 30th 14.00″/1911
    Troy 6.67″ Unknown Unknown

    The next few days are expected to be dry, but some limited showers are forecast to return around Friday.
