The weather is not great for baseball in Chicago today, and there is a Beach Hazards Statement in effect on this Sunday afternoon. Northeast winds coming over the vastness of Lake Michigan are creating the conditions for waves up to 12 feet high crashing onshore.
Welcome to the LRC Forecast Experience Blog. Weather2020 is making accurate long range forecasts at a 75% clip. We use a combination of art and science to make these forecasts. Computer models can be used as guidance, but as of this date
Kansas City has had minimal problems from the wet month as we have had just enough rain to make everything lush, green, fill up the ponds, and only minor flooding in most areas. It has rained 25 of the 29 days this month with a large area of rain moving across right now.
The wet weather pattern continues across the plains states. A big complex of thunderstorms is over Oklahoma yet again this morning. A weaker disturbance is also drifting northeast across eastern Kansas into western Missouri.
Welcome to the LRC Forecast Experience blog. For over a decade now we have been sharing this new weather forecasting technology called the Lezak's Recurring Cycle, or LRC. We used to call it the theory, back in the early 2000s.
Welcome to the LRC Forecast Experience Blog. I will finish this blog entry with a couple pictures of Sunny The Weather Dog. Let's begin with the contest update as we move into day 3 of this week that we made long range weather forecasts.
I am writing this on Sunday evening. Four, five, six, seven, and eight days ago Weather2020 "knew" that today would be a more significant severe weather day and weekend. The SPC had no risk in many of these areas as of Saturday, not to mention a week ago. Our outlook for this week 100 days ago has been more accurate than the SPC experimental 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 day outlooks.
In the transition from the warm phase into the cold phase of this pattern we had some rather violent weather, including the worst severe weather of the season for the KC region on last Saturday night into early Sunday morning. And, now we are in the part of the pattern that we forecasted the wet conditions to arrive.
On this Saturday, there are Flash Flood Watches in effect from the KC metro area south to the Texas coast, and there are freeze warnings across a large part of New York state. It's May 23rd, wow. As many of you know, this cold wave part of the cycling pattern was forecast months ago to arrive this week.
A slow moving storm system is approaching the plains states. This will be a rain producing machine and many spots will likely end up with way too much rain during the next few days. Flooding is the main risk type.
