Extended Weather Outlooks for you!
Weather forecasting is very challenging, even days in advance. Even so, providing a useful outlook weeks, months and seasons in advance is possible and has been done with a high degree of accuracy by Meteorologist Jeff Hutton. Hutton Weather Futures can provide extended weather outlooks with valuable insight into what can be expected weather-wise far into extended periods to help in your business needs. Periods of "opportunity" for planning purposes with shifting the odds of events can be laid out months in advance!
Jeff Hutton is an independent consulting Meteorologist based out of Kingman, KS. Mr. Hutton received a Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology from the University of Oklahoma in 1983 and began his professional career in weather during that same year working for a private firm in Oklahoma City. He joined the National Weather Service in Des Moines, Iowa in 1989 and then moved on to Dodge City KS where he retired from the National Weather Service at the end of 2022. Hutton was the Warning Coordination Meteorologist during the last 28 out of the 33 years that he was with the NWS.
As a professional Meteorologist, Mr. Hutton has a vast amount of knowledge on global weather patterns and utilizes innovative strategies and technology applications to support long term weather forecasts and monthly and seasonal outlooks.
Hutton gained valuable knowledge early in his weather career about the importance of ocean/atmosphere relationships (including sea surface temperatures and tropical convection) in driving global and regional weather and climate changes. Teleconnections that develop in the presence of global forcing can be identified and the resulting sensible weather can be tracked and timed.
In the late 1990s, Hutton began giving presentations on extended outlooks based on close observation of weather patterns that can be unique from one year to the next. His forecasts have proved to be skillful and continually beat the forecasts of global weather models.
These outlooks will be similar to what have been published at swkswx.blogspot.com, but on a weekly basis and with far more detail in extended weather outlooks. The reports will be sent via email. The geographic area covered is centered on the Great Plains and will generally be centered on Kansas Colorado, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas.
Significant periods of potential impacts that could help in your planning needs will be identified. In many cases the lead time will be months in advance.

The reports are great & I'm thankful for all the information! The long-range outlooks/trends help in decision making of what crops to plant & when. I find the reports helpful for irrigation scheduling also.
I look forward to getting these updates each week, and have found them incredibly valuable for our business. Also, it should be noted that your accuracy was very high last year!
The "heads up" on the blizzard saved us from possible livestock loss. We were able to move the cattle to a sheltered area a week before the big one! Thanks!
The paid subscription will include a detailed weather forecast and outlook sent directly to your email address included with your payment. At a minimum you will receive an email with the report once per week although content will be dependent on the situation. Interim updates will be sent when conditions warrant. I encourage you to contact me when you are at a critical decision making point.
The reports are intended to help in your business planning for possible weather impacts throughout the year. They can be used for planting and harvest dates, irrigation scheduling, haying, etc. They are not "short term" updates to rapidly changing weather (i.e., thunderstorms, local severe weather, etc.).
The reports are not to be posted on social media sites or to be shared with non-subscribers. They are to be used for your personal use only.
Your subscription can be cancelled at any time. A refund will be made on a pro-rated basis.
Hutton Weather Futures LLC will use the name and email (included with payment) for submission of weather outlooks through electronic mail and for billing purposes only. Any data on the subscriber will NOT be shared.
