When it comes to weather, what do you want to know?


Weather Watch ...from the A.M.

If you've been awake early enough to catch our morning weather updates the past two mornings, you may have noticed I have been discussing a morning blog topic during my weathercasts.

Every morning there will be a new discussion topic on this blog. The topics will range from how the weather affects you, to things that go on behind the camera.

Feel free to join the morning discussions and send me your ideas for future blog discussion topics, or leave them in the comments below. I look forward to hearing your ideas and thoughts!

I would like to know the science behind the weather like what is the dewpoint exactly, what causes fog,

I'd like to know more about current weather balloon data in tornado season, as in Skew T, Log P. What the heck does it tell us? I know meterologists at NWS Topeka rely heavily on it to forecast severe weather. They release two weather balloons a day, every day to get a snapshot of the atmosphere. http://www.rap.ucar.edu/weather/upper/top.gif

Edjayhawk, I've been watching the CPC's longer range forecasts for years and they are getting better at it all the time. http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/forecasts/

Thanks, Bob for the head's up. It takes an enormous about of data to predict the weather as there are so many variable and they are constantly changing. Thanks to really good weather software programs and faster computers they are more often right than wrong.

Thanks for all of the great questions. I will use these topics/questions in my upcoming blogs. Feel free to post more topics or questions, either here or on upcoming blogs, and I will add them to the list!

consumer1, I have put together a blog today about smog, I hope it answers your question!
