A unique opportunity to watch a hurricane with one of the very first radars in the country to have the Dual-Pol upgrade installed! The KMHX Morehead City, NC radar was very recently installed with this upgrade, and couldn’t have come at a better time either. Dual-Pol has several practical uses in meteorology, like determining rain, from hail, from debris, from insects and other wildlife. It can also provide much better precipitation estimates and even assist with winter weather forecasts. I am very interested to see what unique phenomenon can be observed with the dual-pol upgrade in Hurricane Irene.

Top left is base (0.5 degree) reflectivity, top right is base velocity, bottom left is ZDR (part of the dual-pol upgrade), bottom right is echo tops. Image captured at 07:04 Z, or 3:04 am EDT 8/27/11.

Our early morning rainfall was very much welcomed by all of north Texas, but not anywhere near enough to break or even dent our long standing drought. DFW Airport only received 0.86 inches of rain unfortunately. Below are totals from the rest of north Texas:

Overnight storms possible for most of north Texas!

A line of strong thunderstorms is pushing south through central Oklahoma, and is expected to affect north Texas by 2am. These storms will move through the Metroplex between 3-5am, and be in a somewhat weakened state. I wouldn’t expect much severe weather, but stronger straight line winds are possible from these. If you have outdoor furniture to [read more...]

Relief for DFW? Slight rain chances Thurs and Fri

This will be a brief post. A stronger area of convection across Oklahoma has generated an outflow boundary across the northern parts of north Texas today. This outflow has the potential to reach the Metroplex and generate some thunderstorms. This feature isn’t picked up on global computer models very well, but the National Weather Service [read more...]

Sizzling heatwave expected to break records by Friday

Record drought and record heat are the norms this season in north Texas. As of 08/08/11, DFW Airport observed 38 consecutive days with daytime high temps of 100 degrees or more! This is the 2nd greatest number of consecutive 100+ degree days, and within 4 days of the record set in 1980. Summary of this [read more...]

Record breaking heat wave expected the next 7 days

Across north Texas a large high pressure ridge will intensify this week, bringing record breaking heat and further intensifying our drought. Forecast high temperatures are expected to tie or exceed established record high temperatures almost daily for the next 7 days. Currently the entire region is under an Excessive Heat Warning. Expect daily high temperatures ranging [read more...]

Tropical Storm Don and north Texas weather

No doubt everyone know’s of Tropical Storm Don’s existence in the southern Gulf of Mexico. The storm track currently takes it well south of north Texas. The storm’s size is expected to remain small, and its strength at landfall is expected around 55mph sustained wind speed. This is a good setup for the southern and central parts [read more...]

Assuming the ambient air temperature does not fall below 86 degrees by 1am tonight, then we will have set the ALL TIME highest minimum temperature at Dallas/Fort Worth airport today. The incredible heat wave is expected to continue for at least the next week, with even hotter temperatures possible next Tuesday! Afternoon high temps are [read more...]

Oppressive heat wave continues for north Texas

Near record temperatures daily for most of north Texas have been the norm this month. So far every day this month except for July 1st, has had afternoon high temperatures meeting or exceeding 100 degrees F. As of July 24th, we have had 23 consecutive 100 degree days, with 30 days total this year. This [read more...]
