SafetyWise and NOAA Forecast for Monday, August 31, 2015

Ladies & Gents,      

We have gone 48 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: A fairly moist air mass remains over the area today and tomorrow with the lifted index of -2 or -3, so we should see more shower and thunderstorm development both days. A drier more stable air mass will move into the area Wednesday and Thursday, then more unstable with showers and thunderstorms returning at the end of the week and the weekend (when I'll be…

SafetyWise and NOAA Forecast for Friday, August 28, 20158

Ladies & Gents,     

We have gone 45 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: A much less active weather day for us, but a lifted index forecasted to be -1 this afternoon, we could see an isolated thunderstorm develop. I think we should have a couple of really nice weather days. The system, off the West Coast this morning, will move northeastward and at least a little energy moves across the northern Rockies and will draw some moisture northward…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls Forecast for Tuesday, August 25, 2015

Ladies & Gents,   

We have gone 156 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: Discussion on storm event In theory, we should see a fairly wet period this afternoon through tomorrow afternoon. Considerable cloudiness is spreading northward through Utah and into western Colorado and will move across us this afternoon through tomorrow. The air mass becomes fairly unstable this afternoon and evening, so a higher risk of thunderstorms. We'll see the…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls Forecast for Tuesday, August 25, 2015

Ladies & Gents,  

We have gone 156 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: A slight increase in the number of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon, but looking at the satellite images, a fairly significant surge of moisture is moving northward through Arizona and will move across us later tomorrow afternoon through Thursday. A decrease in the activity Friday through the weekend, but still a slight chance of a couple of showers or storms in…

Discussion on storm event Sunny and warmer today and tomorrow with mainly isolated thunderstorms with a slight increase in coverage tomorrow.

The showers could linger into Thursday, then become more isolated on Friday into…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls Forecast for Friday, August 21, 2015

Ladies & Gents,   

We have gone 152 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: Low pressure is moving southeastward across southern British Columbia and will move across Montana today on the way to the Dakotas tomorrow. Our air mass does get slightly unstable later this afternoon and early evening, and the models generate a brief shower overnight, but the moisture layer, and lift is pretty weak, so I'll leave the chance out of the forecast for now.…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls Forecast for Thursday, August 20, 2015

Ladies & Gents,  

We have gone 151 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: A couple of nice weather days, but we will see a system pass by to the north of us later tomorrow and Saturday, and a weak front will move across the area. There doesn't appear to be enough lift or or moisture for a chance of a thunderstorm, so I'll continue the trend of dry weather through the weekend. We'll see an increase in moisture next week and could be as early as…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls Forecast for Wednesday, August 19, 2015

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 151 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: We should have several really nice weather days over the area. One system and its associated cold front has shifted off to the north and east, and we're left with a dry air mass and we'll warm over the next couple of days. Another weak front will clip the area later Friday and Saturday, but most of the moisture and lift will be just south of us. We should have an awesome…

Ladies & Gents,    

We have gone 150 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: A little cooler air mass over the area this morning, and we could see a little cloudiness this afternoon with a slight chance of a brief shower. A couple of quiet weather days, then another cool front will move across the area early Saturday bringing another chance of a brief shower, but mainly a cooler air mass. A stronger low pressure will develop along the West Coast…

Ladies & Gents,  

We have gone 146 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: Just looking at the available moisture in the atmosphere, and the instability during the next couple of afternoons, conditions are very similar through the weekend. The low pressure, that has been off the West Coast, is moving northeastward and will head into the northern Rockies tonight and tomorrow, then continues eastward into the Plains on Sunday. A second system will…
