Fall Outlook

Posted Aug 18th - 12:27pm

I was wondering what the farmers almanac has said about this winter? Or is that information out yet? I know that Mr. Eubank studies the weather and wondered what his thoughts were on what we can expect in the coming seasons.

Thank you for this opportunity to ask questions.

I was at Lake Powell last Monday night August 7th and saw a beautiful "Moon bow", I just returned from vacation and was wondering if you have any viewers that got a picture of it?

Do you think you could help or do you know how often these occur around here?

Sunrise and Low Temperatures

Posted Aug 17th - 1:43pm

Since winter will soon be upon us, I have a question about winter morning temperatures that I've observed. I've noticed that on cold days, the temperature always seems to drop a degree or two as soon as the sun comes up before it starts rising again. Why is that?

Low and High Pressure

Posted Aug 16th - 1:07pm

If the "weight" of the atmosphere at a specific point on the surface is the barometric pressure and defines a high or low at that point, how can you have a low at the surface and a high aloft or vice versa at basically the same point? Also, if that is possible is there a different interpretation to the terms high and low when describing the upper atmosphere.

Lightning and Water Safety

Posted Aug 16th - 11:45am

Dear weather dudes, On our lunch time swim 8-3-06 (1 mile square lake for example) I turn to locate my partner when I noticed a bolt of lightning not so far off in the distance. We hi-tailed it out of the water fast. So my question is "what would happen to us if light struck within that square mile of the lake (in the water)???????" The fish and ducks seem to survive l-stikes or am I mistaken? Bill C. Ogden, UT


Bill, don't forget the one dudette on our weather team!

Cyclones, Typhoons and Hurricanes

Posted Aug 10th - 11:57am

Hi why do they call one a hurricane and one a typhoon? Thanks Dana


Hurricanes and Typhoons are monster storms that form over the ocean and have intense winds. When the storm reaches tropical storm strength, it gets a name and when winds reach 74 mph it becomes a hurricane.

Can you tell me what time the moon rises this Saturday, August 12? And is there a web site with this information?

Thanks, Anton H.


Sunlight and Heat

Posted Aug 9th - 2:54pm

If June 21 is the day with the most sun light and June is the month with the most sunlight then why isn't June the hottest month of the year, July or August is generally the hottest months out of the year? Please let me know, this question has been bugging me for a while.

Sincerely, Kurtis L.


100 degree days

Posted Aug 9th - 1:18pm

Was the summer of '94 hotter than the summer of '60? I was thinking 1960 had 23 days of 100 degree plus weather and 1994 had only (ONLY??) 21. Hope we don't see either again. Thanks, Chris K. SLC


By visiting the climate pages of the NWS hopefully can get this information without having to pay for it. The summer of 1994 had 21 days of 100 degree heat, the + symbol next to the 1994 on the NWS table indicates that 21 days of 100 degrees has ALSO happened on other years. This summer we've had 9 days of 100 degrees or higher already.

Average Temperatures

Posted Aug 9th - 12:49pm

What does "average" temperature mean? Is the average temperature for that day taken over the past 5, 10, 15 or more years? Also, do last years temperatures go into the averages reported in 2006?
