  1. Northern Ohio Obs/Discussion Part 2

    So the winters of 15/16, 16/17, and 17/18 will have all had a 70+ temperature in met winter in Cleveland. A 70 degree temp in winter in Cleveland is pretty rare by itself, let alone to string 3 consecutive winters with one. It’s funny how it’s now more common to see 70 degree days than it is to get a 6” snowstorm. This winter was so close to being good, but it ended up being another Detroit special.

    Cleveland just cannot catch a break when it comes to decent synoptic events. It’s been years of miss after miss with perpetual 1-3” snowfalls instead. The airport is still running a 7” deficit on the season. Truly takes a miracle pattern to have normal snowfall these days. March 2008 was a decade ago already, and it seems the credit card it was put on still has lots more payments to be made.

    It really is amazing how you could bank on a widespread 6-12" synoptic storm across NE Ohio almost every year or at least every other year. Now, it's becoming once every 8 years. CLE had a 3.7" seasonal snowfall deficit as of yesterday. It practically takes a miracle pattern just to get close to normal these days.

    Watching these models the past few days emphasizes how incredibly difficult it is for Cleveland to score a 6"+ synoptic storm. Still plenty of time for things to turn around, but it would seem this will either end up being a run of the mill 3-6" snowfall or a narrow miss.

    The irony of a cold and snowy end to 2017 is that 2017 still ended up being Cleveland’s warmest year on record. This coming off 2016, which was at the time, the warmest year on record.

    No doubt that Erie got clobbered with an immense amount of snow, but I’m betting totals are inflated. ERI reported 54” at the 7 am update yesterday but the snow depth was only 28”. Seems awfully suspect. Perhaps it’s just the way the snow is measured by clearing a snow board and then it blowing back on the board. It’s kind of like going to a casino winning 500, losing 250, and then winning another 500. You walk out with 750 but you can say you won 1,000.

    Right now 2017 is currently the warmest year on record for Cleveland. The cold snap this week might be enough to swap places with 2016 for record warmest. Nonetheless, the past two years have been exceptionally warm for Cleveland.

    Impressive totals in Erie. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if the snow totals at the airport there are a bit inflated this month. Looking at the ERI December F6 they got over 20” without a thaw earlier in the month and their snowdepth never exceeded 4 inches. Later on the 15th and 16th they reported 13” new but the snow depth only went up by 3” to 7”? Seems suspect even considering the fluff factor of this type of snow.

    I hope everyone enjoys their white Christmas! It seems not much has changed with the NW trend pulling another nice storm out from under Cleveland. One of these years the rare and elusive widespread 6”+ snowstorm will hit NE Ohio.

    Summer 2017 ended up being the 11th warmest on record for Cleveland (out of 147 summers). Considering 2016 was the hottest on record, it definitely skewed people's perspectives this summer.

    Over performed today in Cleveland with a high of 92. That makes it the 12th 90+ day this year. An average year is 11 or 12 days at or above 90, so this year is running slightly ahead of normal assuming a couple more 90 days pop up later in the month and September.

    Seems like the desert southwest is pretty humid as well. I noticed that Las Vegas had a dewpoint of 75 this morning. That's got to be unusual for them right? I don't associate Las Vegas in the dead of summer with 75 degree dewpoints. Similarly Phoenix had a 70 degree dewpoint earlier and is currently 99 with a 67 dewpoint, not what I'd call a dry heat by any means.

    Yep, June and July have the least variation between warmest and coldest on record. But, also that +3 departure is only based on the 30 year normals, it's actually +4 if you take into account the entire 145 year record history. Constantly moving the normals every decade keeps the anomalies in check.

    June should end up 10th warmest on record for CLE. 8 out of the last 12 months made a top 10 warmest list. Pretty remarkable.

    Saginaw (MBS) got another rain shower this afternoon which bumped their monthly total up to 10.03" of rain, which is second wettest of any month on record. Previous record rainiest June was 6.92" in 1996 there. Still a far cry away from September 1986 when an unbelievable 16.16" of rain fell that month. Nonetheless, most flood reports and river crests are coming in comparable to or just slightly under the historic 1986 levels.
