I have not even had a nearly cloud-free day this month. As of yesterday, sunshine for this February is approximately at a mediocre 13%. The upcoming rainy week will decrease that percentage a bit as it goes on. Welcome to January 2017 all over again.
  3. February 2018 Discussion

    Just as feared, DAY in the screw zone while CMH and CVG had decent sun at times. Temps underachieved at 44 under wall-to-wall overcast skies. TWC was the only that stuck its fork on today. Hence, another crappy weekend. A lick or two of sunshine last Saturday (February 10th) saved DAY and CMH from a 2nd shutout weekend in a row. Either way, the pattern of crappy weekends continue at least until next month. Looks like the Week Without a Sun is on the horizon this week.
  4. Even with what TWC is currently showing for the next couple of weeks, this February looks to be the next January 2017/December 2014 given the lack of sunshine so far this month. This February looks to be the cloudiest month for this Winter.

  6. December 8-16 Clipper Regime

    NWS and the local mets' forecasts are still going as strong as possible, but TWC just stuck a fork on any snow in associated with tomorrow's clipper.
  7. November 2017 Discussion

    Another raw, chilly day with temps in the 30s and wall-to-wall stratus following an early high of 42 overnight.
  8. November 2017 Discussion

    Same here, though temps were able to rise through the 50s before topping out around 60 earlier tonight. It should have rained here if it was going to be like that. Few of the local meteorologists were of little help in contrast to what NWS and TWC hinted and nailed. A crappy first weekend of November is certainly on tap after a rainy first day of November. To add insult to injury, all first 5 days (and counting) of the month have had cloudy mornings. Pray this November isn't going to be a repeat of December 2014 and this past January combined. I'd laugh at the end of the year if this November would end up cloudier than this upcoming December. NWS and TWC currently hinting a period of nice, crisp fall weather suitable for this month come around the middle of the upcoming week.

  10. September 2017 Record Breaking Heat Wave

    At least today was the day all three climate sites (CVG, DAY, CMH) had the chance to hit or exceed that after they all got 89'd yesterday. Good festival weather.
  11. September 2017 Record Breaking Heat Wave

    Definitely suited the official last day of this astronomical "summer."
  12. September 2017 Record Breaking Heat Wave

    According to http://w1.weather.gov/data/obhistory/KDAY.html, guess again! Temps actually overperformed enough just before the stray storms hit and even topped out at 90 for the second time this year, previously on June 12th. The earliest last 90 on record is finally SAFE! CVG got 89'd, though.
  13. September 2017 Discussion

    Even the GFS had some 90s popping out at times during July. Either way, those days were just reserved for next Summer or the year after.

    I do not see any changes in my trees' leaves, yet. I'm uncertain about it, too. However, I don't think we're going to be off the hook that easy again this upcoming winter.
