Long, Dry Stretches

Posted by on September 15, 2017 at 3:09 pm

Long, warm, dry stretches are somewhat common in the month of September. It appears as though we are in line for one which may extend 7-9 days from today (Friday). How does that compare to other years? Note that, by comparison, how long stretches are in January. The new GOES-16 hi-res satellite images from today […]

Moisture From Irma

While the deep, rain-producing moisture with now Tropical Storm Irma is confined to the Tennessee Valley and southeast states, some of the moisture very high aloft is getting spun off as far north as Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, and Arkansas. Because there is plenty of moisture available aloft where most of the commercial jet traffic […]

Ground Fog

The “morning valley fog” season is starting. It’s an indication that we are starting to enter into a more fall-like pattern with light winds, clear skies, and longer nights of radiational cooling.

A fast-moving, mid-level disturbance was strong and fast enough to generate a spectacular shelf cloud along the leading edge of a morning line of showers and thunderstorms. Thanks to many people who submitted photos via Facebook and Twitter today. Here are a few of those amazing photos: Follow me on Twitter HERE.

It Has Been A While

Thursday’s temperature departure of +10°F is the warmest departure since our warm spell in mid-June of this summer.

Here are a couple of images of yesterday’s EF-0 tornado that touched down just NE of the Youngstown-Vienna Airport.

11 Days

Tuesday’s official high of 90°F now makes it 11 days at 90°F or hotter. Our summer forecast was for 14. There’s still plenty of time to see a few more before we put away 90°F for the year. In the meantime, yesterday’s departure was the biggest since mid-July.

Just like July, there hasn’t been a whole lot of variety in our August temperatures! This will likely persist for another few weeks.
