Best Meal Of The Day

It’s always my intention to wake earlier than what I do on weekend mornings. Such was the case today. After a full brief on the weather scenario developing for the weekend while sipping on my first cup of coffee (see post below), I was determined to make the morning special by creating an omelette from some produce I forgot I had.

Add a little Asiago cheese and an English muffin and…

….you have breakfast fit for a prince, made so by the King of Kings’ rescue mission for us 2,000 years ago and whose Word on which I also dined. Food for the soul, food for the body.

I’ve begun reading 1 John. One of my favorite passages says that, “God is light, and in Him there is no darkness.” Imagine for a moment a place that has NO darkness AT ALL. That also means a place in which you will not find any shadows! Pondering those things that God has planned for those who place their trust in Jesus is an interesting exercise. God’s Word says that none of us could ever even come close to imagining the amazing place that Christ is preparing for those who trust in His Son for salvation (1 Corinthians 2:8-10).

I can’t imagine living my life without the King of Kings living in my heart.

Windy Sunday Coming

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 5-day stretch when highs should slip into the 40s°F.

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?


Sure! Why not? After sitting on a couple of interviews about the “sentimental, romantic” nature of fog and foghorns, what better day to promote it than today. You can listen to the podcast audio below. Enjoy.

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 temperatures next week. No major weather systems until next Wednesday.

Lake Erie Ice

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.

Late Weekend Clipper

I’ll be filling in  tonight on FOX 8 News at 6 and 10 PM. Join me after watching the PBA Tournament Of Champions LIVE from Akron, Ohio on FOX this afternoon!

Click on the RADAR TAB above to keep track of the incoming snow Sunday afternoon and evening. This clipper-type system (originally from the Seattle area) will bring a widespread swath of synoptic snow (not lake effect) that will bring a general 1-3″ of accumulation by just past midnight on Monday morning. (Click on any image below to see a close up.)

Aside from Valentine’s Day, it looks like a fairly active weather week. Another stormy system will approach on Friday with rain, changing to snow on Saturday to start the next weekend:

In this animation, watch the clipper snow drop 1-3″ tonight, and another round of significant snow early next weekend:

Who Is YOUR Flock?

I love mornings like this. I have a favorite chair to sip coffee and dive into God’s Word while watching life go by out the back deck door. Recently, I’ve been spending time in 1st Peter. I came across this passage today and stopped:

At first glance, one might be tempted to think this applies only to your church Pastor, or your boss at work. But the more I read it, the more I realized that every single one of us has a “flock” under our care. It could be your family, it could be your co-workers, or it could be your neighbors. I thought of the members on my team at the television station. As the lead meteorologist, I set the tone. Yet, verse 3 goes on to say that I should lead by example and never by “lording it over people.” I’ve done it both ways and I can tell you that lording it over people makes things miserable for those you care for AND for yourself!

Stop and think today: Who is the flock entrusted to me by God? Let God’s love for your flock lead you in the way you care and serve them. It was a great reminder for me.

I’d love your thoughts. Feel free to leave me and my readers a comment below (the forum will be open for about a week).

Here’s praying that your weekend is full of joy and God’s favor.

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.
