Well, we're losing a major part of the Weather Center today. As Amanda moves on to a change of pace, we all want to wish her the best. As everyone who has children has commented or sent in emails...they grow up real fast...enjoy the time. And with that advice, I... Continue reading…

Another Holiday......?

Posted June 28th, 2007 by Matt Lanza. 24 comments

I figure since things look quiet over the next few days, we'll focus on the next bit of interesting weather...albeit brief. We have three major forecasts coming up... the Fourth of July, 7/7/07, which is just about everyone's new wedding date, and the Boilermaker. The latter two are out of... Continue reading…

More Storms Tomorrow!

Posted June 26th, 2007 by Matt Lanza. 108 comments

First off, we made another change to the weather webcast, which we think you'll like, but if not, please let us know. We reverted back to the old format of one webcast and discussion, as opposed to two. Both the short term and extended will be available in the one... Continue reading…

Summer Continues....

Posted June 25th, 2007 by Matt Lanza. 88 comments

And it rolls on. We're back on the upside of temperatures now. Humidity will begin to run at us tonight, sending dewpoints into the mid 60s by morning. This will translate to a brutal day on Tuesday. The record high is 95 degrees. Our current forecast is for 92 degrees.... Continue reading…

Severe Weather Possibly Today?

Posted June 19th, 2007 by Matt Lanza. 159 comments

Well, I guess I'll be updating here since this warrants its own entry. Been away all weekend and on jury duty, so I'm just catching myself up now. An interesting looking setup for today. As of 11 AM, there is a modest amount of instability around, but there's a lot... Continue reading…

Quiet Weather...for a change!

Posted June 14th, 2007 by Matt Lanza. 31 comments

It looks pretty quiet around here over the next few days. I figured I'd just kind of set the stage with the weather, and show you what's going on, and just briefly touch on the next round of interesting weather next week. For all the computer models we have and can... Continue reading…

New Recreational Forecast!

Posted June 13th, 2007 by Matt Lanza. 13 comments

Well since the weather is quiet, I decided that our web page needed a new item. The snowmometer isn't that exciting on the web, and it's more useful to have a recreational forecast. So if you go to the wktv.com weather home page, you'll notice the third image on... Continue reading…

Recapping Friday's Weather

I didn't get a chance to really overview what went down on Friday, so let me walk you through what actually happened in our area. First of all, warnings were issued across the NWS Buffalo warning area well out ahead of the line of storms because of the wind... Continue reading…

Severe Weather Likely Friday

Well we've been watching this for a week now, and it continues to look good both on paper and in reality. We have a pretty decent severe weather event unfolding in Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota. As this spreads east, it will begin to spread thunderstorms across Michigan, southern Ontario and... Continue reading…

Just a read tonight. Not much change to thoughts, but we can start to get more focus on Friday...see below for details. We're watching what's going on in the Upper Midwest tonight closely. So far, two tornado watches are up for parts of South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming and Montana. Quiet though,... Continue reading…

From Frost to Mid-Summer?

Posted June 5th, 2007 by Matt Lanza. 19 comments

This weird and wild late spring continues over the next couple of days. First off, you feel it out there now...it's gotten a heck of a lot cooler. Tonight's lows will bottom out in the 40s, but with the wind and cloud cover, frost should not form. On Wednesday, with... Continue reading…

Barry Little Rain?

Posted June 4th, 2007 by Matt Lanza. 22 comments

Our computer models had hinted that there would be a nice split between the deep moisture of Barry and an approaching upper level system from the west. Incredibly, this happened, but it happened that an actual hole in the rain occurred over CNY. I wasn't able to watch... Continue reading…
