    September 2019 General Discussion

    Thermometer at home did not even make it to 80F today, which was supposed to be the warmest day of this stretch. Ahh, September near the Lakes, also had several rounds of boomers.

    That calm wind ought to be a real kick in the shorts.

    The further north you go in our subforum, the better August/September tend to be, with the more active jet stream and plenty of warm, but not unbearable summer/early fall days. The Ohio Valley tends to bake and dry out in those months, so I can see how the summer doldrums could set in.

    Spring/Summer 2019 Complaint/Banter Thread

    I see DTW recorded two 90F days consecutively this latest warm period as well, probably intrahour. In Milwaukee I don't know if it's the urban location, I always thought either the direction it was facing (I'm leaning towards east because it always seems to heat up quickly in the morning) or being on the tarmac. A local met said it was not on the tarmac, but I'm still not convinced it produces an accurate reading for the local area.

    Spring/Summer 2019 Complaint/Banter Thread

    Major airport weather stations have to get their act together and strive for accuracy; MKE's weather station is always several degrees higher than surrounding ones on offshore warm days like yesterday and today. Both days they hit 90F, but Timmerman and Waukesha, the closest local ones, were both in the mid 80s. Meanwhile ORD was generally lower than the weather stations around them, which I find odd as others have mentioned. As a weather geek, it kind of irks me that we can't trust major local airport weather stations as accurate imo.

    July 20-21 Severe Wx

    Round 1 underway, thinking Round 2 will weaken after this first batch hits, but who knows? It's been a pretty active few days after going 10 days with just a trace of rain.

    Things look pretty primed this afternoon for much of Southern Wisconsin for mainly a wind damage threat.

    7-19 Severe outbreak MN into upper MI

    Yeah, it held together even better on the west side of the lake, especially given the warm temps in the upper atmosphere. Looks like we're going to get some good storms for an hour or so.

    You can see the effects of the cap with the struggle for the line to push south now. It may well break apart entirely as it starts to stall over Central Wisconsin.

    I'm surprised the winds were almost nil for a time this afternoon, most of the obs in S Wisconsin/N Illinois had at least a 10mph sustained wind. I know that on days like this, 10mph would not feel like nearly enough though.

    7-19 Severe outbreak MN into upper MI

    I think it had me fooled, started to turn right once it crossed into Wisconsin, and seeing the systems the last couple days do this and sag further southward than progged I thought it would be the start of a trend, but it has eased up a bit on the turn.

    That one came barreling through at night here as well, even though I don't personally remember it (for you folks in Madison too).

    That complex in NW Wisconsin looks to have the right blinker on, even Madison and Milwaukee may be in its sights if it can maintain in this high instability environment.

    Mid-July Heat Wave

    Temps in Southern Wisconsin May be impacted with this early morning MCS; starting in the low to mid 70s as opposed to the progged upper 70s, as well as some cloud cover most likely may make a difference.

    Mid-July Heat Wave

    You better hope that convection in Wisconsin stays north/gets out of the way for Thursday’s high to verify.
