I had the privilege of having a wonderful conversation via Zoom with my longtime friend and colleague, Bryan Busby. He is the “Dick Goddard” of Kansas City at KMBC-TV and has been there for thirty-five years. BTW, Bryan will be MY guest on WeatherJazz® THIS Friday on Episode #219.

The notable, accrued rainfall deficit for Cleveland was essentially wiped out in just 12 days. Too much, too quick? YES. The result was quite a bit of local flooding over the weekend.

Catching Up Quickly

One week ago, Cleveland’s rainfall deficit was approaching 6″ for 2021 (since January 1). However, our recent bout of thundery days has quickly erased that deficit down to 2″! That essentially means we’ve seen much above normal rainfall since June 1st. The summer has, indeed, been a bit soggy for many. For anyone looking for […]

While there were no reported tornado touchdowns, there was a rather LONG list (263) of places reporting some kind of wind damage. Here is a photo that longtime friend Neil Manausa snapped […]

Today’s (Tuesday’s) high of 92°F (Cleveland and Akron-Canton) makes it the second consecutive day of maximum temperatures of 90°F or higher. Chances are we will not see a third consecutive day (official definition of a heatwave for NEOhio) because of increased cloud cover and shower and thunderstorm coverage. A few local backyards picked up 3-5″ […]

First 90°F Of 2021

At 2 p.m., Cleveland officially nibbled at the 90°F mark for the first time since late August in 2020 (there were no 90s°F in September!. Additionally, it was hot enough to trigger random thunderstorms from 3 p.m. forward, but these should die down after the sun sets tonight.
