Normal Temps vs. Actual Temps

Posted Apr 14th - 2:50pm

Good Morning....

I have been "searching" my fingers off to find web-sites that will compare the Normal temperatures to Actual Temperatures in Salt Lake City without any success....

Would you have any information or links that give you this information??

Water Data and Other Fruity Inquiries

Posted Apr 7th - 6:22pm

Every spring storm, I'm curious to know of how much damage was caused to the fruit blossoms because of the cold. Can you direct me to a source on the Internet?

I would also like to know of an Internet source where to find up-to-date water pack information.

Ground vs. Air Temperature

Posted Apr 7th - 5:49pm

I am a professed \"brown thumb\" attempting to make another go at gardening this year. Could you please tell me exactly what is \"ground temperature\"? I assume it isn\'t the same as air temperature, and every packet of seeds, garden bulb instructions, and gardening book state that I need to plant when the \"ground temperature\" is above a certain measure. Without buying a ground thermometer, is there a way to know how warm the ground is? I think this has been my downfall in the past. Thanks, Janet


The two temperatures are different you are correct. Air temperatures are measured at about 4.5 feet and ground temperatures are taken at the ground. Typically when you plant the ground needs to be thawed out and you need to take the temperature either at the soil or slightly into it.

Watches, Warnings and Advisories

Posted Apr 7th - 4:57pm

I've been wondering...

What's the difference between a winter storm watch & a winter storm advisory? Also, what's the difference between a winter storm warning & a heavy snow warning?

Based on the inversion explanation on KSL television about a month ago, I understand why we get inversion in the winter (because of the cloud cover), but why do we also get it in the summer (since we don't get much cloud cover then)?

Do other areas of the country also get inversion, or is it just because we are in a mountainous area?


Extended Forecasts

My question: I can't find on your weather page where I can get a 14 day forecast. The seven day is great but is there anything longer in the forecast than that?

Thanks to all for your great work.

How do severe weather and flood warning reach the homes in Utah? What type of weather is most dangerous or damaging in Utah?

My allergies have been kicking in stronger than usual this week. My eyes and nose are protesting. What's been so high that it's been bugging me so badly? I was also wondering if the pollen count is listed anywhere on KSL's site. If it is where is it? Thanks.



Dreaming About Storms....

Posted Mar 26th - 5:36pm

Just curious, but are there storms that are bad enough that the lightning in them looks red or purple or even green. I know this sounds weird, but I have had a number of dreams where the clouds are blacker than black and the lightning is different colors. I just want to know if my dreams have a basis in fact somewhere.

Thanks. Jana C.
