how would you do as a NWS meteorologist????


last night i thought an advisory should have been issued for mid into late evening in the lexington area as snow totals were nearing the criteria and there blowing snow and slick spots this was minor compared to could be missed in the heat of a severe weather outbreak.

being a meterolgist at the nws has a lot of duties and responbilties one of them is issuing warnings to millions in there forecast area. here is a new  simulator game called hot seat  which makes you a nws meteo for a region and you are in charge for issuing the proper warnings for the severe weather event, no cost to play here is the link it takes between 15-25 mins. see if you can score better than me!!

after friday i’m not sure where to go with the forecast as signals are mixed and it all relies on if an east coast storm forms saturday.

1. monday through wednesday will see nw flow giving away to southerly flow and waa highs will trend up each day with fair skies from the low to upper 30’s then into the low 50’s.

2. thursday will even warmer with highs in the upper 50’s the price may be more strong storms it all depends on timing otherwise we’ll see showers and thunder.

3. friday will be cooler after the passage 0f a cold front with temps knocked back down into the 40’s.

we’ll keep it short so you have time to see how you would do as a nws meteorologist.
