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 an easy, easy fix:

Other popular episodes included the one on “frost quakes:”

And of course, my prediction for the Super Bowl game!

Fast Rebound

It’s still cold this Thursday, but watch how quickly the cold air recedes by the weekend.

Cleveland spent 25 hours below zero this go-around, the sixth longest period of below zero readings since records began, however, there were no recored lows established during this entire stretch!

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.

Með þér

It has been some time since I last posted. Time has a way to zip by with too many “urgent things” to take care for too much of the time.

I pray your Thanksgiving was memorable and special in every way.

Last night (Friday) while waiting for the (very snowy) PAC12 football game to conclude, I “tuned in” to Icelandic radio. I heard this song (below) and was immediately enamored with the flavor of it. “Með þér” means “With You.”

Apparently, I’m not alone. Með þér is #1 on the Icelandic music chart right now. The artist is Jon Jonsson, an Icelander who studied music at Boston University. Until last year, he was also an international soccer star! I hope you enjoyed “Með þér.” Perhaps you’ll even search it out and download it. I did.

There was some excitement near the Lake Erie shoreline this morning when waterspouts formed within a band of “lake effect showers” between 9 AM and 11 AM.

Why are waterspouts so common in the autumn months in NEOhio? Let’s explore! I’ll also tell you about a fun astronomical conjunction visible everywhere in the world where skies are clear tonight or Thursday night.

Foliage Comparison

Yes, we are running about a week behind the usual fall foliage color timeline. The current cooler pattern will speed us toward peak foliage this weekend.

Last Warm Day

Enjoying this warm stretch? Get out there and take in this last warm day! We will go from much warmer than normal to much cooler than normal

On top of that, it looks like we will see the first official overnight low in the 30s by Saturday morning. That’s close to the average date for the first 30s of the year of October 12. Her’s more information on the cool-down on today’s release of Episode #010 of WeatherJazz®:

Fall foliage colors should accelerate this weekend, too. Note that the chlorophyl factories are still open for business right now, encouraged by the warm, sunny days.
