ZRR's weather station moves back to Iron River, MI

By: ZRR, 4:49 PM GMT on November 09, 2011

You might have noticed KMICASPI2 is no longer active, I have moved back to Iron River and taken most of my weather station with me. Unfortunately the weather and very steep roof will not allow me to retrieve the anemometer assembly. Looks like I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and order a replacement part. Should have it up and going in a couple weeks, weather permitting. Need a window of good weather before we get any further into this La Nina winter, other wise m...

Irene....the worst hurricane the northeast has seen in many years???

By: ZRR, 4:27 PM GMT on August 24, 2011

UPDATE: Still waiting on the 2:00 NHC discussion but it seems further weakening of the storm is occurring. It still has good structure, but the storm is sucking in a lot of dry air from the west and convection around the center isn't what you'd see in a major hurricane. The cloud tops on the infrared images show most cloud tops are under -70C. Never the less is still has a large and powerful circulation, and will have a strong impact on coastal areas from NC to almo...

By: ZRR, 3:42 PM GMT on August 23, 2011

UPDATE: 3:05 (CDT)The eye is still porely defined, a very deep area of convection is flaring up on the northeastern side of the eye which is bulging out into the eyewall. The storm is undergoing light wind sheer from the southwest, this is hindering outflow a little on the southwest portion of the storm.The latest satellite images are beginning to show a an eye wall. As the hurricane begins to move away from Hispaniola(which has been disrupting its surface inflow fo...

Irene's eye beginning to develop

By: ZRR, 3:05 PM GMT on August 23, 2011

The latest satellite images are beginning to show a an eye wall. As the hurricane begins to move away from Hispaniola(which has been disrupting its surface inflow for a while now) more rain banding and an expanding CDO should develop on the southern and eastern quadrant of the storm. Here is the visible Image at 9:45 (CDT)/ 1445Z


Hurricane Irene trending to right: East Coast a possible target of a major hurricane

By: ZRR, 4:34 PM GMT on August 22, 2011

This has nothing to do with Upper Peninsula weather, but this Hurricane is getting interesting. The upper level ridge that the models thought earlier would be quite a bit stronger now shows sings of weakening over the east coast and Florida. Instead of taking a track right over Jamaica, Haiti and Cuba, it track shifted a little more north and now it seems it will have no interaction with the mountains of those island countries. Its seems it will head towards t...
