    July 2019 General Discussion

    I get the disappointment of needing a coat for chilly air, but conversely I would find it discouraging for a front to not wipe out heat and humidity. Little airmass change.

    These are my favorite kind of summer days, except for the ones with heavy thunderstorms. A significant break from the heat (at least three straight days with highs under 80 it appears) and dews actually have dropped into the 40s late today.

    Even in this low shear environment, a pretty impressive cluster of storms just west of Madison.

    I expected the storms to weaken approaching Milwaukee but also looks to be weakening as it heads into Chicago. Onshore winds doing their thing.

    A lot of you can rejoice, ORD, DTW and DAY all hit 90F today for the first time this summer!

    Yeah, my NWS office does that, ticks me off a bit that they steer too much toward climo then end up getting temps wrong by 10F or so on the regular. They should know as much as anyone that temps do not tend to be very consistent so trending toward climo is not the smart choice.

    Be my guest, unless your main outdoor recreation is swimming or laying on the beach to try to get a tan, I don't see the allure of the warm, humid, but dry summer. We seem to be locked in to a pretty nice pattern here; heck, we haven't had a low at 60F or above yet this warm season officially. That's where so far only 2003 rivals this delayed summer start in recent years.

    Actually, a cold, dry winter and a warm/hot, dry summer is the worst combo. I think most weather enthusiasts here would agree, except those who only like big temp records.

    Lake affect for local climate

    I'm really enjoying this week's general weather of 70s and sunny/low humidity while most others in the Midwest are sweating their behinds off. This type of weather is good for most outdoor activities except watersports and swimming.

    All it takes around here is 5 more miles inland and it was splendid: highs around 70, dews in the 50s, and two more similar days on tap. Cue Alek: best June climo!

    Yeah but it wouldn’t surprise me to see the wet anomalies expand north toward your area from what looks to be the southern and central Plains/Mississippi Valley for the first half of June anyways.

    Anyone else think 2003 is a good analog so far for this warm season? That seems to be the epitome of a slow start to summer around here among the last 20 years anyways.

    May 2019 Discussion

    It was an interesting May; we more than doubled our average days of thunderstorms for the month with 10 instead of the average of 4 days, pretty hard to do during a cooler than average May for our locale. I'm hoping the cool and relatively stormy pattern continues. Regardless of storms, this coming week looks to be quite pleasant on the whole as it should be this time of year.

    I'm not sure how your climo compares, but despite averages being in the 60s all month for highs, it doesn't often settle around average (which would be ideal). The most May days that had highs in the 60s over the last five was 10 days that we had in 2014. It is just normal sadly for it to be up and down instead of having periods where we stay seasonal for several days in a row.
