Not Busted

If you’ve been tapping your wall barometer and wondering if it’s busted, you’re not alone. But fear not! It’s not busted. Surface pressures haven’t changed much in the last few days which is not so unusual. Listen to Wednesday’s episode of WeatherJazz® below to learn why the atmosphere has fewer swings in the summer than in the winter.

Thursday Sunrise Eclipse

While it’s unlikely we will have skies that will cooperate for the tail end of the solar eclipse when the sun rises on Thursday, here are the details just in case you wake upo and find yourself in an unexpected clear spot. Otherwise, you can watch the eclipse , live, on various web sites such as SpaceWeather.com

Just Enough

So far, fleeting showers left just enough rain to give lawns and gardens a quick drink.

Expect more of the same between now and Friday. There is NO method of determining where exactly the afternoon showers and thunderstorms will pop up. If you need to know, keep a radar APP handy and know where you are on that map!

Unsettled Week Ahead

After a beautiful weekend, a slow-moving wet-weather system will start to impact Ohio this week. The animation below covers the week ahead, Monday through next weekend. The color areas are pockets of atmospheric “energy” that will wring out moisture in the form of mainly afternoon showers and thunderstorms.

We need the rain to keep Ohio’s farmers in the zone~!

Needed Rain

We are anywhere between 3 to 5 inches below normal for annual rainfall thus far, so the rain coming between Wednesday and Thursday will be a blessing to local farmers.

Lava, Cookies, and Cherry Squares

Would you like to see how Mike and Izabela Russell put my special opening jingle together on their live YouTube program, Free Jingle Friday? See below… and if you ever need a jingle, go to MRC.fm or watch their Free Jingle Friday program at 8:00 a.m. Eastern USA time zone!

This is a photo of Dave Hinman, host of WMT-AM’s Open Line program back when I was a part o0f it in 1981 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

OK, it’s time to share my PERFECT (and “healthy”) almond flour chocolate chip cookies. This was the small batch that I talked about today, coming from my Black & Decker toaster oven.

Here is the recipe! (Let me know what you think of them).

This recipe is a VERY SMALL batch. It can make up to 6 medium sized cookies. You can DOUBLE all of the ingredients to get a dozen or so. Incidentally, almond flour can be very expensive at normal grocery stores… but I found large 3 pound bags of almond flour at Costco for LESS than the price of a 1 pound bag at my local grocery chain!!!!

1/2 cup almond flour*
1 tablespoon oat flour
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder (aluminum free)
1/8 teaspoon baking soda

 

Mix all of the dry ingredients well in a
medium or large bowl.

 

Add: 28 grams (2 tablespoons) partially melted butter
2 tablespoons of Egg Beaters (or any egg white product)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
Use a spoon to slowly blend the mixture.

 

Add 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Blend together with spoon.

 

Important:
Place mixture in refrigerator overnight,
or quickly cool in freezer for 30-60 minutes.

 

Use parchment paper on cookie sheet or aluminum foil
on which to place 5-6 balls of dough
(double the number if doubling the recipe).

 

Heat oven (OR toaster oven!) to 365°F.
Bake for 15 minutes. Cool & serve.

 

Thank you Helgi for showing us what the amazing Reykjavik sky looks like at 2:30 a.m. we approach the summer solstice.

Here is the GREAT English speaking newscast from Iceland called The Reykjavik Grapevine. The sound of the lava advancing can be heard toward the end of this episode:

Streak Ends

The quiet streak without a severe thunderstorm warning issued by the Cleveland National Weather Service came to an end at 1:149 p.m. Wednesday when a severe thunderstorm warning was issued for portions of Summit, Stark, and Portage Counties.

That means May 26th is now the LATEST date of any calendar year on which the first severe thunderstorm warning of the year was issued.
