Weak Signals April 25th, 2012

Today the measured signals have been weaker than what is typically normal of late.  However, I would likely dismiss these weak signals as misleading due to the incoming storm from the Pacific Ocean.  I plan to go and take a snap-shot measurement shortly after this blogging this entry.  I would also tend to suspect that the weakened signals may not manifest themselves into any concern for the nation's heartland as it would appear to me that the incoming front could expend its energy prior to reaching the other side of the Rockies.  Then again, of course, I could be wrong.  Unfortunately at this point in time, I can't say that I necessarily understand any ramifications of fluctuating measured signals.

April 25th, 2012

Barometer readings have fallen from 30.0 (0000 hrs) to 29.7 (1545 hrs, about when it first started raining a bit) back up to 29.9 in.hg. (2200 hrs, PST).  At the same time as the barometer was spiking downward, the temperature reportedly dropped 20 deg F - within the span of an hour or so.  This in addition to other weird weather occurrences (winds, etc.) at about that time around the SoCal area.

4/26/12 @ 0100 hrs PST
At the time of the snapshot measurements from the last hour or so, it seems the signals are somewhat weaker to the point of what would have been the norm a couple of years ago.  However, exceptionally odd signal patterns were detected; with St. B seeming to reach further and into locations where such had not been typically received previously.  St. D did not challenge those signals and accordingly appeared elsewhere. (Barometer is currently falling below 29.9 inhg with the dewpoint rising.)  I hope that I am not attempting to 'reinvent the wheel' here.  But even if I am, I can't help but to believe that they may have missed something of which they may not have been aware on the first iteration.
