Ask The Weatherman for November 13, 2013:

Question: What is the layer of the earth that we live in?

Answer: Today we are going to look at the troposphere. This is the layer of the atmosphere that we humans and all life live in. The importance of the troposphere is that this is where almost all of the earth’s weather takes place. This means that the day-to-day weather conditions that we feel from the sun shining to rain or snow, hot or cold. All of this is taking place in the troposphere. When we have big storms – like severe thunderstorms or large hurricanes – you may see the white puffy clouds extend well above the surface of the earth. These two storms are the exception to the rule as they can actually extend into the stratosphere.

November 13, 2013 Storm Tracker Update:

Right Image: Taking a look at the latest SST’s around the globe.

SST Analysis: The light gray shaded area represents where the ice boundaries are. Right now as you can see the Northern Hemisphere ice shield extends southward into parts of Greenland. Also we can see the warmer waters pushing across the Pacific towards Hawaii. This will be the region we have to watch for our ENSO phase.

Eastern Pacific Ocean: Low pressure moving into Canada will bring rain and snow to the region. Low pressure moving towards the Gulf of Alaska will bring more rain and snow to Alaska as winter advisories are posted for the state.

Atlantic Ocean: Low pressure moving over Iceland will bring another day of snow to both Iceland and Greenland. Low pressure moving through Northern Europe will bring snow to the region.

Western Pacific: Low pressure over Northwest Russia is bringing another round of cold weather along with snow to the area. Low pressure moving over Western China will bring rain and snow to the area. Low pressure moving over Northeast Russia will bring snow to the region. Low pressure moving west of Manila is bringing more rainfall to the devastated region.

Indian Ocean: Low pressure in the Bay of Bengal is being watched for possible tropical development.

Southern Hemisphere: Multiple areas of low pressure are moving through the basin. Impacts are being felt over Southern Brazil and Argentina with showers and some thunderstorms. A second low transiting south of South Africa is bringing gusty winds to the region. A third low is moving towards Southwest Australia and will bring some showers and thunderstorms to the region.

Major Weather Impacts Discussion for November 13, 2013:

Day 1-3: High pressure moving in over the Mid-Mississippi River Valley and the Southeast United States will bring another cool day and night to the region. The warmer air will start to return over the Plains, while the West will be mild and dry. The northwest will be cool and dry. Day two the majority of the country will see high pressure again keeping the weather tranquil. There will be a few rain/snow showers over the Pacific Northwest, however. The period will end with high pressure over the Eastern US back into the Plains and the Gulf Coast. A strong new storm system will push into the Northwest bringing rain and snow to the region.

Day 4-7: The period will start with a strong low pressure area pushing into the Great Lakes. This will bring showers to the lakes and into the Mississippi River Valley down to the Gulf Coast. On the backside of this we will see some snowfall over the Dakotas and Montana with rain and snow extending all the way back to the Pacific Northwest. By day five the storm will push up into Southeast Canada. This will bring rain and snow to the Great Lakes, rain showers to the Ohio River Valley and the Mid-Atlantic and even some thunderstorms from the Southeast to the Gulf Coast. High pressure will begin to dive into the Northern Plains bringing another round of cold weather. Day six there will be a few showers left over the Eastern US, while high pressure dominates most of the country again. This will also trigger another round of lake effect snows around the Great Lakes. The period will end with high pressure dominating the entire country and another day of lake effect snows.

Day 8-12: The period will start with high pressure along the East Coast. This will bring partly cloudy skies all the way back into the Plains and the Gulf Coast. A new storm system will push into the Northwest bringing rain and snow to the region. Day nine the storm system will extend from the Pacific Northwest to the Northern Plains with rain and snow showers. The rest of the country will see high pressure. Day ten the storm will move into the Northern Plains bringing rain and some snow showers to the region. The rest of the country will be under high pressure. Day eleven high pressure will still be along the Eastern US. A new storm system will push into the Northern Plains and Rockies bringing rain and snow to the area. The period will end with high pressure along the Eastern US extending into the Gulf Coast. Low pressure over the Great Lakes will be bringing heavy rains and snows to the area, while a new high pressure center begins to push into the Northern Plains with another round of very cold air.

Long Range Outlook: The period will start with low pressure over the Northeast bringing rain and some snow to the area. A piece of energy will be over Texas and bring rain to the region. The strong high pressure center will build in over the Northern Plains to the Mid-Atlantic. The middle of the period will have high pressure extending from the Plains into the East Coast. The piece of energy from Texas will shift slightly to the Gulf Coast bringing rain showers to the region. The period will end with high pressure over the Eastern US again, while a new powerful storm system pushes into the Southwest. This will slowly drift into the Plains bringing heavy rains to the Southern Plains and possibly heavy snowfall to the Northern Plains.

Green Energy Report for November 13, 2013:

Wave Energy: There will be moderate amounts of energy along the entire East Coast and also back into the Gulf Coast. This will also be true for the entire West Coast.

Hydro Energy: There are no major areas forecasted today due to most of the country being under high pressure.

Solar Energy: There will be plenty of sunshine from the Pacific Northwest into the Southwest, across the entire Plains region into the Gulf Coast and up the entire Eastern US. Plenty of solar energy for all regions as high pressure dominates the weather pattern.

Wind Energy: There will be stronger winds over the Western Great Lakes and will make for good energy. Also, over the Ohio River Valley and along the Gulf Coast again today will see ample amounts of wind energy.

Weather and Your Wallet for Atlanta GA:

High pressure will dominate the region with another very cold day in store as high temps rise only into the upper 40’s.

Dining: If you plan on heading out, make sure to take the jacket for a night under the stars.

Transportation: There will be no issues at the airport or on the major roads today as there will be plenty of sunshine.

Shopping: Today will be a nice day to get out and shop, however make sure you have your jacket as it will be cold.

Electricity: Today will be a large demand day for heating. This afternoon there will be a window of time that will not need as much, but the overnight hours will be medium ranged with the forecast for 25HDD’s on the day.

Yard Work: Today will be a nice day to work in the yard, however tonight make sure to cover the sensitive plants as the temps fall to near freezing again.

Construction: There will be no issues with construction projects today. If you’re working an outdoor project, make sure to bundle up as it will be cold.

Outdoor Venues: Today will be a good day to get out and walk in the park or see the sights. Tonight make sure to bundle up as it will be cold.
