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 […]

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 (

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 […]

Flash Freeze & Fast Ice

Posted by on February 9, 2019 at 12:08 am

The contrast was pretty dramatic between Thursday night and Friday morning. Nearly an inch of rain fell before the cool down. Since the ground was saturated, there was plenty of standing water exposed to the sub-freezing chill-down. The result is something I like to call “fast ice” because of the flash freeze. In talk about […]

By far, the most downloaded and listened to podcast since the October redesign and launch of Season 2 has been Episode #041: My Car Is Shaking! Apparently, many people had the same issue the Sunday after the big Ohio snowstorm and wondered if something was desperately wrong with their car. Not at all! There was […]

While we welcome (astronomical) winter, Antarctica is welcoming summer! A former college classmate of mine is doing some research in Antarctica right now. He sent me a photo of a waddle of penguins (20 of them) that were curious about what they were doing.
