Weather talk: Several factors affect the wind chill index

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: '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: 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: A late June frost is possible
The date of the last freezing temperature in spring is one of the most volatile statistics in the record book. Historically, the final “frost” has been as early as April 17 in 2007 and as late as June 20 in 1969. For the first ten years of record, 1881-90, the average last frost date was May 21. Over the past 10 years, the average last frost date has been May 6. The difference in the averages amounts to 15 days.

Weather Talk: One good rain away
Each warm day causes more and more evaporation which leaves the ground drier and drier. Many farmers in the area are concerned that the lack of rain will soon impact the growing season. And while all of these concerns are real, it is important to realize that our region is one good storm away from being quite wet.

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: Just how dry was this spring?
A question came into the Weather Center office this week about this spring being among the driest on record. Not even close. In fact, if you were to just include the precipitation this March and April (counting none of our May rains), it would only tie the March through May total from 1980 which was just 1.28 inches. The spring which also produced our only 100 degree temperature in April was, not coincidentally, the driest spring on record.

Weather Talk: The spring of our discontent

Weather Talk: From too dry to plenty wet
It took one storm exactly two days to take eastern North Dakota and western Minnesota from too dry to plenty wet. This is often how it works in spring because of the fact that average precipitation through fall, winter, and spring is just not that much.

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.
