Signatures

Autumn can be a great time to see some seasonal signatures on the early morning visible satellite images. This (Thursday) morning was no exception! Check out the small plume of lake effect rain showers on Lake Erie as the cool, dry air moved over the very warm (73°F) lake surface as well as the river fog that condenses on cool, calm mornings in August, September, and October. (Click on the image for a larger view.)

Have you noticed how much darker it is earlier in the evening? The fastest changes are yet to occur.

Early Sign?

This is something I’ve not seen for a few years: early autumn foliage peppered in some of the maple trees as well as some trees showing an early drop signature under its canopy.

Do you have any similar photos? Feel free to share them via Twitter (@AndreBernier) or a JPG image via email (weatherjazz@yahoo.com).

Hurricanes Discussed

Many of you know how blessed I was to have learned under my former college professor (and co-founder of The Weather Channel) Dr. Joe D’Aleo. He was the department chairman of the meteorology program at then Lyndon State College in Lyndonville, Vermont (now University of Northern Vermont) in the 1970s.

Dr. D’Aleo is still very active in meteorology via WeatherBell.com as well as television programs produced in southern New Hampshire. His most recent program is Part 2 on east coast hurricanes. I highly recommend it. Joining Dr. D’Aleo on his panel include former Weather Channel colleague Herb Stevens along with Joe and Matt Bastardi.

Rogue Wave

Watch as a rogue wave baptizes me in the surf offshore from Hilton Head Island last week.

Holiday Weekend

The upcoming Memorial Day weekend is beginning to come into clearer focus. No single day will be a washout, but there will be ample thunderstorms rolling about the radar screen to stay on your toes both Saturday, and especially Sunday if you have outdoor plans. Memorial Day Monday is currently looking like the best day of the three.
