I am @AccuFrank on Twitter, which is the most reliable way to get alerted when I post new stuff. There's also this Facebook fan page thingie, which is not particularly reliable for that but it's good for posting little things where 140 characters won't do them justice.
I sorta misspoke when talking about the MJO going through phases 8-1-2 in the coming days, it's actually more like Neutral Zone-weakly phase 1-robustly into phase 2.
This, by the way is entry 2,000 on the blog. Entry one was on February 17, 2006. Back in those days I usually rode a bike to work and actually talked about the weather up north more often.
The warm to hot and dry weather continues until midweek, then a front moves through later in the workweek followed by cooler and more comfortable air. We also still have a couple of tropical concerns, too, one close to home.
While not totally quiet, the weather across the south looks mostly dry and warm, even summery, through the middle of next week. Starting around Wednesday and going through the end of next week, it looks much more stormy.
Most of the South will stay dry through the middle of next week, which is good for some and not so good for others. After that, a more unsettled stretch will get underway.
Most of the Southeast looks dry though this weekend while the southern plains will see a few rain opportunities. Nicole is heading toward Bermuda and could be a bad hurricane for them.
High pressure will keep the Southeast mostly dry through this weekend, while the southern Plains sees some opportunity for rain and thunderstorms. Nicole remains a threat to Bermuda.
Generally good fall weather follows Matthew this week, it looks mostly nice in the Southeast until the end of the week and not all that bad this weekend. Areas west of the Mississippi look more unsettled starting at midweek. Aside from Nicole, tropical focus is shifting to the Pacific for a while.
