Good Things Ahead

Good things come to those to have atmospheric patience! Note that a long period of shower-free weather starts on Friday and should carry us into next week.

Additionally, look for a much warmer week, next week. Highs will approach 90°F several times. We’ve hit 90°F once already in mid-May, but that has been it so far. We are likely to add a few more 90°F days next week.

May started off quite cool and wet, then spiked for a few days when we hit our first 90°F day on May 17th. The last 10 or so days have hovered very close to normal.

On paper, May will average near normal, but much above normal rainfall (+2.36″)!

Not Your Imagination

So, you think it has been a long, cool spell?

Guess what? You’re right.

We’ve been cooler than normal for 14 consecutive days. Today’s warm-up will stop this current streak at 14 days.

That’s the longest cold stretch in over two years! The last time we saw such a long cold stretch was in February of 2015.

Persistent Chill

The only day in May that saw above normal temperatures was May 1st. The rest was persistently below normal. The first ten days of the month has averaged well below normal.

The blocking pattern appears to be on schedule to break during next week.

Small Full Moon

The near full moon (full on Wednesday) is certainly beautiful, but did you notice how “small” it is? That’s because the moon is cycling near its apogee (farthest distance from the Earth at roughly 250,000 miles). The next lunar perigee is May 25 (closest distance to Earth at roughly 222,000 miles). Unfortunately, we won’t see it this month since the moon will new in its new phase.

Frosty Night Again

If you saw frost last night (most did), expect to see a repeat performance on Tuesday morning. Hopkins Airport was 6° away from the record low and we will duplicate that Tuesday morning. Any moderation past Tuesday will be gradual.

Unsettled

We swill start a prolonged unsettled period as we head into this final weekend of April. At least we can say that there has not been a lot of cold air visiting us.

Wishing you all a happy weekend!

Warm and Wet

April thus far has been definitively warm and wet. The wet part is thanks to a huge event last week, so that may be a bit misleading since it has been almost 7 days since we’ve seen significant rain.

Today would be the day to mow your lawn since unsettled weather returns Thursday, and for an extended stretch that begins this weekend.

Blowing The Curve

It’s amazing how one single (and major) rainfall event can, in one fell swoop, change our status from drier than normal to much wetter than normal. That’s exactly what Wednesday evening’s prolific thunderstorm pattern did for Cleveland.
