Severe weather for the Southern Plains tonight and Southeast tomorrow

by on Mar.25, 2011, under Other

We will have a chance for severe weather across parts of Eastern Oklahoma, Northeastern Texas, Northwestern Louisiana, and Southwestern Arkansas. This is a look at the WRF MUCAPE forecast for later tonight.

A cold front is moving through the Southern Plains today. Later tonight, it will stall across Southeastern Oklahoma and bring a chance of thunderstorms across much of the Ark-La-Tex region. Based on this morning’s upper air and model data, I think the main threats with these storms will be small hail and damaging winds. The damaging wind potential would come later after dark and once the storms begin to weaken. Forecast soundings indicate a fairly significant layer of dry air near the surface, which will increase the potential for strong downbursts of wind.

Tomorrow, the severe weather potential will shift into the Southeast as the front continues to move southeast. Large hail will be the main threat across this region. However, I think there is enough shear and low level convergence to produce a few tornadoes, mainly in Northern portions of Mississippi and Alabama. Because of the amount of CAPE and shear present, it would not surprise me to see a few bow echoes in this area as well.

The Summits Edge Morton, IL Review

by on Mar.21, 2011, under Reviews

I recently had the opportunity to spend some time at The Summits Edge with my company. Since there website does not have any reviews and is kind of poorly laid out I wanted to post a review to help them out. First off When we got there we were warmly welcomed by Bill Ingold and shown to the gym so that we could get our harnesses on. After a quick briefing on safety we were taken upstairs for a brief but thorough explanation of safety procedure on the high rope course. Everybody had a very enjoyable and safe time on the high rope course and was challenged to the point they were comfortable. After completing the high ropes courses anybody who was not exhausted and wanted to was given the opportunity to try there luck at the climbing walls. We were given a short briefing on safety procedure and allowed to begin. The walls were sufficiently challenging after the strenuous high ropes course. If you have rock climbing shoes I would suggest bringing them as it will make the climb a lot easier on you. Once we had run out of time it was time for lunch  which was from the attached red rock bar /grill the pizza was delicious and I would go back here to eat in the future. So if you are looking for something fun to do with you company or other group in the Central Illinois area I would definitely suggest you check out the Summits Edge in Morton.
