Winter Monopoly

Up to this point, the wintry assaults have been sequestered to the Northern and Central Rockies in the continental USA. That is fairly typical in any given September-October period.

Welcome Home (You)

I have always enjoyed the energetic pop sound of the Backstreet Boys, but I have even greater joy after seeing band member, Brian Littrell, share his Christian testimony at Liberty University Convocation last year. He mentioned his faith-based CD, Welcome Home (You), released in 2006.

I downloaded Brian’s album today and listened to it on my way into work. If you love the Backstreet Boys, check out the songs in Brian’s 2006 release. My guess is that you’ll have some new favorites to download.

Here is the title cut of the album, Welcome Home (You)

Another Record Day

Just before 2 p.m. Friday, Hopkins Airport tied the old record for September 22 at 92°F.

The old record was set WAY back in 1895!

Crescent Moon

With clear skies over the next 5-6 days, we will start seeing the waxing crescent moon with increasing visibility every night, low in the southwest sky:

The full harvest moon this year is on October 5th, Thursday night.

Trending Warmer

We may have a September departure of -1.5°F right now, but with an extended stretch of warm and dry weather spare an isolated shower, that will change by next week.

Long, Dry Stretches

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 are quite telling. Note the cumulus convection inland, while the skies above the lake are completely clear!

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 flies (cruising altitude), the jet exhaust introduces condensation nuclei. The water vapor quickly attracts to these exhaust particles and become highly visible as condensation trails.

These are NOT “chemtrails.” There is no such thing!

Jase = No Beard!

Duck Dynasty fans won’t recognize Jase Robertson. On Labor Day, he cut his beard and hair after raising over $35,000 for the MiaMoo Fund to help other kids with cleft palettes.
