  1. Svr watch went up. Nice line of stms moving in. Could get a little frisky.
  2. MRCC maps using 1dF anom scale. Yeah, very quick turn around for our sub. Now lets see how the rest of the month plays.
  3. 0.79" of rain yesterday. That's 1.63" for a 2 day total here in town. 3.16" for the month so far. Forecast for the next few days looks pretty mellow, with temps in the 50's-60's with some shower chances. Seasonal to cooler conditions.
  4. Radar is lit again. Big storms and heavy rain. Wow. Flooding for sure going to happen.
  5. That batch of rain last night netted 0.86" in town, with 0.98" at the airport. Another round coming in for the afternoon. Flood watch out for the entire N MN region with warnings just outside Brainerd, and up along the CA border from Ely over to I-Falls. Up north, the lakes are just opening up from the thick ice cover these past few days, and there was still snow in the woods, so the Rainy River Basin is full with the rain, and the last of the snow melt.
  6. Radar is lit! Svr stuff staying in WI, tho. Heavy rain, and plenty of thunder on the door step.
  7. Upper 70's - low 80's yesterday afternoon away from the lake in the higher terrain. Tied 3rd warmest at KDLH at 79. Hibbing, and I-Falls only in the low 70's, but still very warm for this time of year.
  8. Last couple days, ended with a bout 1/2" of rain. So far, looking good this year. About 1" above normal. More showers/stms, and a stiff lake wind coming up tomorrow night into Thurs, with Fri being another day like today. Then Canadian air moves in on the weekend. Fishing opener going to be a little chilly on Sunday with a breezy W/NW wind. Go figure, that's nothing new. Natural jigging weather.
  9. 68 on a light west wind. No lake breeze, yet. Best day of spring so far. Was out on the deck this morning getting some sun. Man, did that feel good. Windows are open getting some needed fresh air in the house. Should hit the low 70's in a couple hours if the lake breeze doesn't kick in. West wind may not be strong enough to keep that from happening. As warm air rises, cool lake air rushes in. Just like the shores of the ocean. LOL, just as I mention lake breeze, it starts. Looks like upper 60's is the most today. But still an awesome day for early May.
  10. Warned cell moving towards Spooner, WI. 1.5" hail and 60 mph winds. Thunder in the air here with a cell moving in from the south. Looks like temps this week are going to be slightly warmer than thought from just a couple days ago. 65-70 until the weekend. Of course its opening fishing weekend, and it looks to cool off into the 50's. Will see if that holds.
  11. You guys can have that garbage, that's too damn hot for my liking.
  12. Light rain has been moving thru today with the more mod-hvy stuff staying west and south. High's of 60-65 with off and on shwrs/stms this week. Spring has finally sprung, and it feels good. Will sit out on the deck, and get a little Sun when I can.
  13. Nice weather here with temps in the 50's with a day lake breeze. The lake really keeps temps subdued near the shore during spring, and early summer. Looks like some showers with possible thunder tomorrow into Monday. Temps will rise in to the 60's with a west wind early next week. That'll feel nice. Grass is greening up fast, but trees are slow to bud leaves. 60's will have them popping quick tho. Bring it!!
  14. Here's my July 4 forecast which is a Monday this year. I have the map for that day, but the weekend looks like a storm front moving through on Sat, with high pressure over the lakes Sun. I have a boundary along the southern sub, with another approaching front in the north on the 4th. Not a total wash out, but shwrs/stms will be around. Sunday into Monday could be rather cool for some.
  15. Looks like my Mother's Day forecast was spot on.
  16. Prelim data in for April, and it was definitely on the cooler side with the western areas of the sub really below norm. April's these past years have tended rather cool, overall.
  17. 1.11" of rain the past couple days. Now mid 40's with mostly cloudy skies on cool W/NW wind. Looks like dry weather, and 50's with E/NE winds starting Wed. That's pretty seasonable here along the shore for early May.
  18. Gray, wet day. Wind has slacked off considerably. Had an inch of rain so far. Looks like temps on the increase this week. Should be pretty average by the end of the week, even a little above with 50's, and even some 60's away from the Big Lake. Getting better. My Mother's Day forecast in the Holiday thread looks to be on track. Rain/stms on tap.
  19. Windy, rainy day today. And it looks like Illinois is under the gun this afternoon with a tornado watch.
  20. Cool pics, sad wx. Even tho Old Man Winter has one helluva attitude this year, his days are numbered. Still not as bad 2013. That was a crazy April, especially here. Interesting how warm last year was with records, now the tables have turned the other way.
  21. 30's all week here with a balmy mid 40's and rain for the weekend. Snow showers yesterday, and again today.
  22. Balmy 30-35F today. What month is it again? Avg highs are low 50's this time of the month, but reaching avg has been a chore this month, in general. The last couple days of precip netted 0.63". Just came in spurts, very scattered. Guess this anomaly map tells the story, especially back my way.
  23. Windy day ( ENE up to 30-35 mph) with scattered rain showers. Looks like bouts of showers with poss thunder tonight into tomorrow. At least it's not snowing this time.
  24. More snow in the Northland today, but should stay more to my north. Cook county building a glacier up there. LOL But milder wx with rain/thunder to end the week. Big runoff coming for the weekend with 1", possibly up to 2" of rain. Gooseberry Falls should be an awesome site again by Sunday. Also have the Lakes water levels. Superior running average with the rest above average. After seeing years of low levels, the last decade has been much higher, even record levels in some cases. Ships can run a little more cargo with the higher water. Saves on cost. https://www.lre.usace.army.mil/Missions/Great-Lakes-Information/Great-Lakes-Information-2/Water-Level-Data/
  25. Yeah, bad timing for sure. Just updated my sig with totals. TH is running 30" above normal for snow this year. Been a good year for skiers, snowmobilers, etc. Saw my first robin yesterday in the snow. It flew into my porch, and was making a ruckus trying to get out. It couldn't figure out that the window wasn't going to let it through, at least for a few minutes. It finally figured it out, and flew out the door. LOL
