Hello, somehow you have stumbled across my webpage!
Here is a link to theNational Weather
Here is a link to myComputer Assignment 5.
Here is a link to theCA 5 Script File.
Here is a link to theIR Satellite Loop.
This loop is a loop from 1630Z to 2000Z on the high risk day of March 4th, 2003. It shows a really strong squall line hammering Central Oklahoma.
Here is a link toCA 9 Part 1 (250 map).
Here is a link toCA 9 Part 2 (Geostrophic Map).
Here is a link toCA 9 Part 3 (Sfc Winds and Pressures).
Now, here are the answers to the questions for CA 9.
#1: Yes, of course there are differences, although they are very miniscule. Wind directions are slightly off in some places, and so
are wind speeds.
#2: Yes, there are differences in the winds. There are two regions where the winds are very different. They are in west central
Texas, and off the coast of Baja California in the Pacific.
#3: I don't see any regions that have geostrophic winds at the surface. The winds are cross isobaric due to friction at the
surface. If the winds were geostrophic at the surface, the coriolis force and the pressure gradient force would be in balance, but
friction along the ground messes this up.
Severe weather season is here!!! WAHOO!!!!
Here is a link to my 500 mb Vorticity Loop.
CA 12 Comments: I would expect there to be interesting weather near that vorticity max that races from southern California to northeast CO.
There also might be some interesting weather in the Minnesota area during the later forecast hours.
As we know now, a severe weather event happened on April 18th from Minnesota all the way down to northeast Nebraska.
Hail, severe winds and some tornadoes were reported in these regions.
