    Severe Weather Outlook

    Just saw this. Have done no research on it yet.

    Quick thought-- if you're on Twitter, be sure you follow your local National Weather Service(s). This is from the NOAA NWS Storm Prediction Center. I've learned they don't always get things right, but they're not always wrong.

    Also-- if you're at all into weather watching, I highly recommend Radar Scope. Even the free version is excellent.

    There doesn't appear to be a free version of Radar Scope for Android.

    My mistake. I'm sorry-- I was thinking of the other weather app that I really like (for different reasons), Windy. It does have a free android version. (Info on WIndy in the links below.)

    Radar Scope gives you un-smoothed radar images for every single radar tower in the world. It's worth $9.99. (It's worth the upgrade, too, IMHO.)

    If you want an in depth tutorial on RS before buying it, written in ordinary user-friendly language, check this out:

    Here's a link to a series of posts on apps & more for preparing for bad weather: https://www.bigfoodetc.com/series/bad-weather/

    I just switched from a droid to an iPhone and one of the first things I did was download RS. Not what you need days & days & days out but nothing beats it as bad weather approaches. (No. I do not work at RS!!)

    Also-- another mistake. RS is available only for the US (including Alaska & Hawaii), and Canada. Windy is available US, Europe, parts of Asia etc.

    I have been using the SPC Storm Prediction Center formerly NSSL products for a long time!
    Pretty much all these folks do is forecast and monitor areas where severe weather may develop or
    is happening, thunderstorms, snow/ice events etc. I find their 1 to 3 day severe outlook pretty accurate
    and watch the 4 to 8 day. During thunderstorm events I watch the "Meso Discussions" and on this they will have
    an area defined for potential severe weather usually a few hours before the action starts happening.

    Prayers up. Specialize in trying to dodge tornadoes around these parts. Rode out a tropical storm at Corpus one time. It was not nice.

    We have not had a winter here in Wisconsin this year. At least not close to normal. Yes we have had some cooled and little snow. I have not plowed of shoveled snow once this season. Right now the fields are almost bear of snow. First week of January I could work outside in just a long sleeve shirt. That does not mean it could not change fast this time of year . Kind of an old rule of mine is get past the first two weeks of February and it all down hill fast. We need a good deep freeze below zero for a few days at least. It kills off pest that other wise the rest of the year will bother us and crops.

    Its 50 F at Slippy Lodge, my Saints done lost, but I'm comfortably marinating in some bourbon watching the Seahawks v Eagles and, what the heck, I've got the firewood so why not start a cozy little fire in the fireplace?

    The Dogs are cuddled up in their places and Mrs S is due home in about 3 hours from siting with her Alzheimer's Eat-Up Mom...Mom in Law is happy though she doesn't know if its winter spring summer or fall or whether to crap in her diaper or not, but I can still get her to smile...

    So what if severe weather comes my way?
