12 - November 13, 2014 Your Hometown Newspaper News Outlook With old man winter just around the corner, it's im- portant to closely follow local weather forecasts and warnings and be familiar with seasonal weather ter- minology. This knowledge could save lives. Listening to a Spe- cific Area Message Encod- ing (SAME) Weather Ra- dio is one of the best ways to monitor severe winter weather notices. These radios only receive weath- er alerts for your specific county or the surround- ing area. SAME Weather Radios provide an alerting tone when the weather- watching tone occurs for your particular county or designated area. You also can keep up with severe weather reports by listening to a National Oceanic and At- mospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio. Part of a nationwide net- work of radio stations, this radio broadcasts National Weather Service warnings, watches, forecasts and oth- er hazard information 24 hours a day. Severe winter storms are a potential killer of people, pets and live- stock. So when weather forecasts predict extremely harsh weather, make ad- vance safety plans in case the conditions develop. Explanations about some winter weath- er terms you might learn about on radio or television broadcasts are listed be- low. A winter storm warning is issued in an- ticipation of a combination of heavy snow, freezing rain or sleet. This warning usually is issued six to 24 hours before the weather is expected to begin. A winter storm watch alerts you to the pos- sibility of a blizzard, heavy snow, freezing rain or sleet. It usually is given 12 to 36 hours before the beginning of the storm. A winter storm outlook is issued prior to a winter storm watch, usually 48 to 60 hours in advance of a winter storm. The outlook is issued when forecasters believe winter weather conditions are pos- sible. weather can completely A blizzard warning immobilize an area. Heavy- is given for sustained or snow, blizzards or ice gusty winds of 35 miles per hour or more, and falling or blowing snow that limits visibility to one-fourth mile or less. These conditions should persist for at least three hours. The wind chill is based on the rate of heat loss from exposed skin caused by the combined ef- fects of wind and cold. An advisory is issued when wind chill temperatures are expected to be between 20 degrees below 0 or colder. If temperatures are predict- ed to be 35 degrees below or colder, a wind chill warn- ing is given. When accumula- tions of snow, freezing rain, freezing drizzle and sleet cause significant incon- venience and moderately dangerous conditions, a winter weather advisory is issued. Freezing rain falls on a surface with a tem- perature at or below freez- ing. Sleet is rain drops that freeze into ice pellets be- fore reaching the ground. Both can cause damaging and dangerous ice accumu- lations.

Juniors and seniors who excel in sciences will gath- er at MSU for a day of com- petition and fun with their peers from other schools, while expanding their edu- cational horizons in those academic disciplines. The participants, all rec- ommended by their teach- ers, will be divided into teams of four students. The team members will repre- sent four different schools, to afford the students an opportunity to get to know their peers from other counties or school districts. "Once the teams are formed, they will have approximately two and one-half hours of problem- solving exploration acfivi. ties, involving math, phys. ics, computer science or industrial and engineering technology," said Dr. Tim O'Brien, associate profes. sor of mathematics and MPATE Day coordinator. Some of the activities will be hands-on practical exercises, while others will be completed with pen and paper. Various MSU faculty and staff members from the College of Science and Technology will lead the explorations. Each of the different activities is scored, and the team with the highest score atthe end of the day's events will be declared the winner. Following the competi- tive portion of the day, a luncheon and awards cer- emony will be held in But- ton Auditorium. Dr. O'Brien said approxi- mately 450 students from MSU's service region and beyond are expected to participate in MPATE Day this year. Additional information about MPATE Day activi- ties is available by calling Dr. O'Brien at 606-783- 9439.
