Weather Pack For July 30, 2012
2012-08-01 12:22:59

Weather Pack is our way to envision what is happening with the weather and create a weather forecast for a certain area of the United States. Today’s focus is on Southwest Mississippi along the Mississippi River. On the left side we have a Skew-T which is used to help us determine what is happening in the upper levels at our forecast location. On the right side is our morning satellite image; both of these features are important to creating an accurate forecast. The Skew-T will show...

Surface Weather Map Features for July 5, 2012
2012-07-05 10:00:03

The morning weather map for July 5, shows us the current surface pressure readings. Surface Pressure is very important from a meteorological stand point. We use this to help us identify where our surface pressure centers are just like you see above. Our Low pressure area is over Northeast Colorado and also the High pressure over the Ontario area. Surface pressure is taken hourly from the stations and they are also mostly done on a 24hr basis, however some places will only submit their...

Looking at the Northern part of South Dakota we see a number at 995mb while over parts of Maine we see the number closer to 1020mb. So we would say that high pressure is over Maine, while low pressure is over the Dakota’s as our MB numbers show. A surface pressure map can be very useful to a weather forecaster in many...
