    MLI tied last year's record of 94 a few days ago. The next day we generally stayed in the 60s. Quite the change. This fresh Canadian air feels quite nice after a long hot summer. MLI ended up with 38 90+ days. Hit 45 here this morning. Point has 40 for tonight. Great bonfire weather!
  2. Let's get this party started right! Lock it in!

    4th 90+ day in a row at MLI. 37 for the year now. Hit 90 here today as well. The mosquitoes have been outrageous the past few days.

    Yeah it'll be interesting to see if we can get a short break between snowfalls. Funny thing for me is the intense heat that hit early on, in May, and continued through June sort of wiped away that memory of the late snowfalls. We really flipped a switch between mid Apr and mid May.

    Was just looking back at my records and saw that we had our first flurries of the season on October 4th 2014. Those were the earliest flakes I've seen since I've been alive. October 4th is less than 3 weeks from now, so it's kind of mind boggling that it can theoretically snow in the not-so-distant future.

    Hey I was actually just about to quote your previous post lol. Yeah another one today makes for the 35th of the season. Hit 87 here today, and 89 yesterday. Really didn't feel uncomfortable though, as the dews have only been in the low to mid 60s, with a decent breeze. What a difference mid 60 degree dews can make compared to the never ending 70s from before. Even with all the rain we've received in the past 3 weeks, the crops have really browned up and dried out over the past 10 days. There's already lots of harvesting (corn) going on, which is pretty early for that. I'm guessing since the corn was WAY ahead of schedule earlier this summer the crops are drying out earlier for the same reasons.

    September heavy rain and Flooding threat

    Looks like Gordon's remnants will track where pretty much all tropical remnants seem to track. Downstate IL through IN/OH and points east. It's always fun to entertain the possibility of seeing tropical remnants this far north/northwest when the medium-range guidance repeatedly shows that scenario, but it's pretty hard to take it serious unless the threat remains within 60hrs. Seems like these things always pull more towards the right compared to what's modeled in the mid-range.

    Damn that's a little too close for comfort! Especially with no warning.

    As expected Gordon's remnants will miss this area well to the southeast. Very unusual to get tropical remnants this far nw. I'd say maybe once in about 10 years estimating. Despite the rather ominous potential that this latest round of rains presented we came out with about the perfect amount of rain. Just under 2" since Saturday. Looking forward to the break in the heat and humidity in the next few days.

    Looks like DVN confirmed an EF-1 on the west side of Cedar Rapids. IIRC that storm wasn't tornado or severe warned.

    September heavy rain and Flooding threat

    Picked up 1.23" of rain last night and today. About a half inch of that fell in about 6-7 minutes last night as a very heavy cell went through. You can definitely see how some areas have picked up excessive amounts after seeing rainfall rates like that. One of the cells that went over today (which eventually went on to drop the birdfart nader near Rockford) exhibited supercell characteristics as it passed just to the northwest. Regarding Gordon's remnants later this week I've been pretty much expecting models to start shifting southeast with the track of it, as it's very unusual to see remnants this far northwest. Looks like the trends have already started. Although with as weird as this year's weather has been it still wouldn't be all too surprising to see such a northwest track like the Euro and GEM had been showing.

    September heavy rain and Flooding threat

    Picked up 0.67" from yesterday morning's storm complex. The storms last eve stayed just to the north but put on a hell of a light show. It was enough to even knock the power out for a short time as a barrage of CGs skirted a bit north of town. Think the best shot at heavy rain will be north and west of the QC tonight, but it's close enough we'll have to keep an eye on it.
