Windy Sunday Coming

Posted by on February 22, 2019 at 9:52 pm

A deepening low pressure system will pass by to out west, but certainly close enough to cause concern. A High Wind Watch for Sunday is in effect for possible wind gusts between 50-60 MPH by Sunday afternoon and evening. This may mean scattered power outages. Secure loose objects outdoors now.

Supermoon Pics

Here are a few neat “supermoon” photos from last night. Respect to each photographer who posted these on Twitter. Here is Episode #056 of my podcast WeatherJazz® which goes into some of the dynamics of the supermoon. Once we get the snow and wintry mix to change to rain on Wednesday afternoon, look for a […]

The Romance Of Fog

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day… I would imagine that busy workweek couples will celebrate with a dinner this weekend What is the coziest kind of weather you can think of for that dinner? Snow? Rain? Warm, dry breezes? Fog? FOG?!?!? Sure! Why not? After sitting on a couple of interviews about the “sentimental, romantic” nature of […]

Valentine Snow Stats

The USA has the most snowpack (Lower 48) it has seen in over 5 years on St. Valentine’s Day: Out of the last 5 years, Cleveland has observed snow on the ground for 4 of them (there was no snow on the ground in 2017). Looks like a cool-ish weekend with a return to normal […]

Lake Erie Ice

Posted by on February 11, 2019 at 2:22 pm

The recent cold period sent Lake Erie ice coverage up by about 20% in the last few days. The ice ebbs and flows with the up-and-down pattern of the next few days until it gets steadily colder again by the weekend.

Check Your Barometer!

The high pressure system flowing down from Canada is a very strong and dense one. This Saturday morning’s readings are pushing close to 31.00″ in places!!! My home weather station is at 30.89″. What about yours? Leave me a comment with your town and barometer reading.

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 […]

New Record!

Posted by on February 7, 2019 at 11:40 am

How about that. Cleveland’s official temperature actually touched 60°F for three observational hours (8, 9, 10 PM). The record high for Thursday is 60°F set only two years ago. We’ll see just after midnight if we went any higher in between hours. Stay tuned. Click on the image below to see a close up of […]

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 […]
