Just rec’d Undergrad Internship Application Deadline 2/12 extended 2/17

Please pass this summer research internship announcement along to any undergraduate students you may know who are:

— interested in a career in research

— but have not yet had an opportunity to explore research careers

Per NSF’s guidance, the majority of our participants will be from schools where research opportunities are limited, and we hold as a major goal to do our part to broaden participation in meteorology and related sciences. Thank you in advance!

————

The National Weather Center Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program is being recommended for continued funding! We have an exciting program that pairs undergraduate students with research mentors to conduct a project in the wide-ranging meteorology, climate, radar engineering, and interdisciplinary topics being researched here. Students are paid a stipend, have free housing, a travel allowance to/from Norman, OK, and travel allowance to present their work at the national conference that best suits them.* In addition to research, I help the students learn more about the many careers in and around meteorology to help them explore and find career options that might suit them well. We hold several workshops and have one-on-one mentoring to help students build skills needed to succeed.

Students interested in the program are required to submit an application, two reference letters, and their official college transcript(s). To be eligible for the program students must be enrolled in a 2- or 4-year college degree program and be a US citizen or permanent resident of the US.

For our new grant we have as partners the Radar Innovations Laboratory (do you know engineering students interested in weather radar?) and the South Central Climate Science Center, which opens new research lines in addition to our traditional severe weather, weather modeling, lightning, statistics, and other projects with mentors from the NOAA and University of Oklahoma organizations housed in the National Weather Center building.

All applications and related materials for the 2016 REU are due by February 12, 2016 for full consideration, though given our late recruitment I will make an exception and accept materials through Wednesday, February 17.

Max min temperature 39° (10)

Monthly precipitation 4.44″
Year-to-date precipitation (through 1/31) 4.44″

Number of precipitation days with .01″ or more 9

Maximum snowfall in 24 hours 25.2″ (23)
Maximum snowdepth on ground 27″ (24)

Weather types
Fog 10
Dense Fog 2
Ice Pellets 1

Sky cover (sunrise to sunset) six-tenths

Pressure
Highest barometric pressure 30.66″ (5)
Lowest barometric pressure 29.36″ (10)

Winds
2 minute fastest mile 26 MPH from 300° (29/1702)
Peak wind gust 38 MPH from the WNW(29/1708)
Gale wind days 2
Damaging wind days 0

Minimum relative humidity 21% (6/1400)

Lowest monthly visibility 1/16 mile (23)
in heavy snow,fog and blowing snow

Summary: The highlight of the month was the big snowstorm on the 22rd and 23rd. It became difficult to measure due to the wind transport with gusts over 35 MPH. I took measurements during the storm every 3 hours, and changing the precipitation can every 6 hours. I reported snowfall data (new snowfall, snow depth) to NWS every 6 hours along with temperature, wind speed and direction and peak wind gust, visibility, weather and obstructions to vision. I take core samples for NWS on
Tuesdays and Fridays and also send observations to cocorahs, and to the NJWO hotline. Observers had a very busy time during this snowstorm. It was another one for the record books.

And Albert wouldn’t listen to me when I was at Chris’s house and told him on the phone that this was going to happen!
NAM had this for days. What you get within 48 hours the Nam is definitely the best model to watch. Especially the high Rez nam.
Oh well the computer models are not an exact science yet

Blizzard Storm Total

For Stewartsville: 25.9"

Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Somerset — 10 PM

22.5″ is the final total in Hillsborough. Took a core for the SWE value of 2.30″.

Top snowfall in my 27 years in Hillsborough. 22.0″ in the January 1996 storm had been the top one. 13th 10″ plus storm during this time period.

Somerset — 7 PM — 24″ — moderate snow, but even more difficult to measure with so much snow on the ground and the continued blowing and drifting. Temperature down to 23, but pressure now on the rise at 29.78″…. Jeff

Somerset — 4 PM — 20″ still with heavy and blowing snow. Temperature has dropped to 24; pressure has generally stayed steady over the past few hours between 29.65″ and 29.70″. Very briefly had some snow pellets that you could hear on windows….. Jeff
