Warm Surge

December 26, 2016

A strong cold front pushing through the area today will mean two unusual things for NEOhio on this day after Christmas. #1 – Look for power-melting highs near, or even a little above 60°F. #2 – The same strong cold front that gave Kansas City Chief fans a run for their stadium tickets last night […]

Balancing Act

December 22, 2016

After factoring in for forecast through December 30th, the December temperature departure (now significantly colder than normal) will likely end up in the “normal” category (which is +/- 2°F). If your household includes children that are hoping to see snowflakes flying from the atmosphere on Christmas Eve, there will be a small window where this […]

Tempering The Averages

December 20, 2016

So far, we are running more than 4°F below normal for the month of December. That’s easy to see given the last several arctic smacks that paid us a visit. However, it looks as though that will be tempered quite a bit by the time we get to Christmas Day. The last week of 2016 […]

Friday Night System

December 12, 2016

Aside from the brutally cold air coming, the next important travel-prohibiting system to affect NEOhio will be on Friday night and very early Saturday. The accumulating snow will eventually mix with and change to rain Saturday afternoon, but until the changeover, travel could be very challenging beginning as early as Friday evening. Stay tuned.

Southernmost Volcano

December 12, 2016

Mt. Erebus, the world’s southernmost active volcano, is active this morning. A college colleague is in Antarctica with NASA right now and he posted this photo of Mt. Erebus sending a plume of steam up from its crater this morning. And for a good morning chuckle, here is a parody on the “Falling Rocks” highway […]

Perfectly Normal

December 7, 2016

It’s not often that the daily recorded maximum and minimum hit the exact daily normals for that date, but that’s exactly what happened yesterday (Tuesday, December 6th)! As one of my meteorology professors used to say: “The daily normals for any given place is simply an average of the extremes.” In other words, you will […]

Science And The Hypothesis

December 7, 2016

It’s a few months old now, but it’s worthy of your time. My former college professor and co-founder of The Weather Channel (who also became my boss at that time) Dr. Joe D’Aleo posted this excellent article on how good science ethics plays a role in climate hypotheses. CLICK HERE for the article.

Off The Cliff

December 6, 2016

Here we go. Beginning Thursday, we will begin the longest stretch of below normal temperatures in over 5 months. Get the firewood, snow shovels, gloves, hats, and winter leggings out and ready to use. It will soon look and feel like Christmas.
