Weather Talk: Potential change coming to the NWS
South Dakota Sen. John Thune has authored a bill on Capitol Hill which proposes to radically change the makeup of the National Weather Service. The bill would greatly reduce staffing in most offices and create six huge central forecast centers which would issue all the forecast products now issued by the 122 separate forecast offices spread around the country.

Weather talk: Several factors affect the wind chill index
A wind chill of 20 below is a lot less dangerous in the sunshine and a lot more dangerous at night. Also, each of us reacts to cold, wind, and wind chill differently.

Weather Talk: 'The Keeling Curve'
The late geochemist, Charles Keeling of Scripps Institution of Oceanography began taking measurements of CO2 in 1958. The graph, showing annual ups and downs but an unmistakable inter-annual rise, has been a key part of the concern over the burning of fossil fuels and the effects on Earth’s climate, and is considered to be an icon of modern science.

Weather Talk: Tornado risk 'small but real'
There is an average of one tornado per county per year. That average tornado has a path length of 2-3 miles and an average width of 30-40 yards. So, picture your county and imagine a 2-3 mile long, 30-40 yard wide swath and you can see just how unlikely it is to have a tornado hit anyone directly.

Weather Talk: Voltage during storms

Weather Talk: Thunder and lightning are the same
People talk about thunder and lightning as if they are different. But lightning and thunder are not just related. Actually, they are the same thing. When static charge creates enough voltage in a thunderstorm, the result is a spark. A huge spark. Lightning is the visible flash of the spark and thunder is the audible sound.

Weather Talk: Wake lows
Sometimes after a large thunderstorm complex has passed, an area of very cool air can drop down from the mid-levels of the atmosphere. In certain, hard to predict circumstances, this can produce a small-scale high-pressure low-pressure situation called a wake low which can cause very strong winds to blow for an hour or two.

Weather Talk: June the peak month for tornadoes
June is typically the peak month for tornadoes across our region. What is it about June weather that causes tornadoes to form? The classic answer, “Cold air from the north clashes with warm and humid air from the Gulf of Mexico,” is an almost a silly oversimplification.

Weather Talk: Shocks in the sky
Have you ever noticed that sometimes thunder produces a sudden, loud crack, and at other times it seems to gently roll across the sky? These two different sounds are actually the same thing.

Weather Talk: First day of spring a 'useless concept'
So there are relationships between the equinoxes and weather, but they are general and varied around the world. The Vernal Equinox is really an astronomical moment with no immediate impacts on the weather anywhere.

Weather Talk: 90 degrees in April?
Temperatures in the 70s in March are rare and out of character but we got one this year when it was 75 on March 15. How about 90 degrees in April? It can happen. The last time was on April 30, 1992, when it was 94 degrees. It was 91 on April 23, 1990. It was 90 on April 18, 1987. In 1980 it was 94 on April 20 and then 100 on April 21.

Weather Talk: Crops will need moisture soon
Now, with warmer weather, the average precipitation goes up but so do our water needs. Fortunately, this dry weather is following 22 years of generally wet weather, so reservoirs are full. There will be plenty of water for drinking and washing clothes this summer. But if it the dry weather continues, some sort of water restrictions will become necessary at some point.

Weather Talk: What's average?
All this talk about below average precipitation the past few months begs a discussion on what it means to be average. The weather is not “supposed” to be average or even near average.

Weather Talk: Raindrops aren't tears, they're spheres
We have all been told since childhood that no two snowflakes are alike (although there are a relatively small number of basic snow crystal patterns). But have you ever thought about differences between raindrops?

Weather Talk: It's either too wet or too dry
It can be too wet or it can be too dry. The concept of “just about right” almost never works in the early spring. If winter snow was substantial, or even average, the frost in the ground makes it hard for moisture to be absorbed.

Weather Talk: Venus and more visible in night sky
Overhead and slightly to the south in the early evening is Jupiter. A small telescope will reveal three or four of Jupiter’s moons. A little less bright, Saturn rises in the east-southeast and is in the southern sky by dawn. The rings are easily visible through a small telescope. The best night sky viewing is away from city lights. While you’re out there, you might get lucky and see a few meteors or the Aurora Borealis.
