VIEW MORE FORECAST AT BIGREDWEATHER.COM

Storms have managed to not form the last couple of days across the entire forecast reigon. The main culprit for this has been the persistant CAP and low cloud cover. I have to apologize for the in accurate forecast, sometimes you have all the right ingredients for Thunderstorms and Severe Weather, but if you have a CAP of warm air over the region, none of those parameters even matter.

On to the forecast the cold front will move through the region tonight, but not much cold air will filter into the region and not much less humid air will either. All this moisture will result in Fog Saturday Morning over areas from I-80 north. Temperatures over the weekend should be in the upper 80s across the entire forecast region. A few isolated storms may form Sunday Night in response to a weather system in Western Nebraska. We will have to watch these storms as a few could be strong to severe.

Temperatures in fact all week long should be in the Mid – Upper 80s across the entire region. The next chance for precipitation next comes on Monday-Wednesday time frame and will have to watch those for potential Severe weather. Stay tuned.





THE BIG STORY: Scattered Severe Storms this afternoon?

MORE FORECAST AT BIGREDWEATHER.COM

Hello everyone and good Friday Morning. Thursdays Severe Weather Outbreak ceased to exsist across the entire region. Let me explain what clearly went wrong. Yesterday morning a batch of cloud and showers made their way down into Eastern Nebraska and Western Iowa. The yproduced an outflow boundry which crossed much of our viewing area and left quite a few clouds for a while before clearing again. This outflow paved the way for cooler mid level temperature and hindered Storms from developing along with the decent sized CAP that formed over the region, thus Severe Storms never formed across the region.

As we head through the day today the Storm Prediction Center has issued a Slight Risk for Severe Storms across much of the state of Nebraska wit an incoming cold front across the region. What does this mean? It means Large Hal and Strong Winds will be possible across the region, the chances of this happening are at about 40-50% shot and if anything forms, should be over by 5:00 PM

As the cold front moves through later today temperatures will be coolest from I-80 northward with temps in the mid 80s for Saturday with barely less humid conditions. As we head through the rest of Sunday and next week it appears that Thunderstorm Chances will increase and should have a chance about every day along with temperatures in the upper 80s all week long. Some storms could actually be severe so stay tuned.





SEVERE STORM OUTBREAK TODAY!

Hello and good Thursday to BigRedWeather.com viewers! After a few early morning Thunderstorms in the region we have got quite a Busy and Stormy afternoon and evening ahead for ourselves! Lets gets down to the situation right away. The Storm Prediction Center has issued a slight risk for Severe Storms over much of the State of Nebraska and Iowa. Right now the parameters look rather impressive with impressive dew points in the mid-upper 70s. This is a very moist atmosphere that will be spreading North from the Gulf of Mexico. Other parameters such as the CAPE is around 3000-4500 which is very high for severe storm outbreaks. Everything is in place for Severe Storm Outbreak across the entire viewing area. The entire viewing area is placed in the highest risk area. By looking at all these parameters, it appesr that VERY Large Hail to the size of baseballs will be possible, Damaging Straight line winds that could cause damage and possible ISOLATED TORNADOS will all be likely across the entire viewing area. A moderate risk was not issued with this newest update, but i think their is a decent liklihood of them issuing a Moderate risk for the viewing area with the next update. This even has the potential to be a significant outbreak that we havent seen all season considering our viewing area hasnt really been tested with immense amounts of Severe Storms. Please continue to stay tuned to BigRedWeather.com for more updates through this developing Severe Weather situation. This story will be my main focal point through Thursday and this Severe Storm Outbreak issue has to be addressed alone by itself. In addition, I will be going out storm chasing so no updates will be made in the afternoon and evening hours.

THE BIG STORY: HEAT AND SEVERE STORM OUTBREAK FRIDAY?

MORE FORECAST AT BIGREDWEATHER.COM

Hello and good Wednesday to everyone. Portions of the viewing area had a wild and loud early morning hours. Storms formed over portions of Northwest Iowa and Southeast South Dakota. At that point it seemed like it would miss us, but just as quickly storms re developed westward and heading due south through extreme Eastern Nebraska and Western Iowa. Bringing with it reports of Damaging Winds, power flicker and areas of .50-1.00″ of rainfall. It also turns out that BigRedWeather.com’s forecast for Storms to form mainly east of a line from Norfolk to Falls City.

As we head through today, hot temperatures will be moving in once again and sticky conditions should persist as humid air rushes northward into the region. High temperatures should mainly be in the upper 80s to lower 90s. The Storm Prediction Center has issued a slight risk for Severe Storms over portions of Northeast Nebraska once again and general very slight risk for marginally severe isolated storms later Wednesday night from Lincoln to Falls city on Northwest from that. Again, it appears that a very small likilhood for storms to maintain strength through our viewing area, but it appears that the Low Level Jet helped the storms form more westward and maintain themselves. Nevertheless, storms expected to form over South Dakota and possible move southeast to affect areas in Eastern Nebraska with best Severe Storm Risk over portions of Northeast Nebraska mainly from Norfolk to Sioux City Line.





THUNDERSTORM UPDATE(9:31 PM)

MORE FORECAST AT BIGREDWEATHER.COM

UPDATE(9:25 PM | 7/7/09 ): This is a third update from BigRedWeather.com. Currently severe storms are developing over portions of Iowa and portions of Southeast South Dakota and Northeast Nebraska. Currently it appears that the storms are moving due south and southeast. Currently the areas that look to be affected in Eastern Nebraska are from Norfolk to Omaha on Eastward with areas such as Omaha jsut barely getting hit.The reason im saying that Omaha may just barely get hit because westward development is occuring in southeast South Dakota and Northeast Nebraska. it was be a close call for the above mentioned Nebraska areas but the chance is still for a miss in those areas. As always stay tuned.
