  1. I wasn't implying that there's nothing to follow, but temperature forecasts aren't that exciting this time of year. I want the first hint of real winter weather for those of us not in Northern MI.
  2. Might as well start a December thread. Rest of November.....ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
  3. Your forecast was spot on. Definite overperformer. NWS has been forecasting 45°-46° for today for several days. Current temps: FWA - 49° SBN - 50°
  4. Thanks for making that map Cyclone. I remember that day vividly. I had a 1980 Jeep CJ-7 with a rag top. I tried to wipe the frost off of the plastic windows and they instantly cracked. It did start though! Drove 20 miles home from work and froze my butt off.
  5. Storm total for Huntington 3.42". 4.11" in the past seven days, making for a very wet week. FWA also had 0.29" before midnight on the 17th, giving them a storm total of 3.25". RECORD EVENT REPORT NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORTHERN INDIANA 1224 AM EDT SUN NOV 19 2017 ...NEW RAINFALL RECORDS FOR NOVEMBER SET AT FORT WAYNE... A DAILY RECORD RAINFALL OF 2.96 INCHES WAS SET AT FORT WAYNE ON SATURDAY NOVEMBER 18TH. THIS BREAKS THE OLD RECORD OF 1.88 SET IN 1969. THIS IS ALSO A SINGLE DAY MONTHLY RECORD FOR NOVEMBER. THE PREVIOUS ONE DAY NOVEMBER RAINFALL RECORD WAS 2.53 INCHES SET ON NOVEMBER 29 2011.
  6. Look dude, I'm sure that you are a nice person and bad things do happen to nice people. The answer to your complaints is internal. You have a few choices. You can learn the science of weather and choose to embrace and enjoy what it brings. You can relocate to a climate that more suits your desires. You can continue to complain, be miserable, and wonder why people give you a hard time. The choice is yours.
  7. Yes. For example, in 2012, we had 18 days of record high temps. But I knew that there were several more days that reached close to, but did not exceed the record. That year featured 6 more days with the second highest temp ever recorded and 7 with the third highest temp for total of 31.
  8. I got curious when looking at threaded extremes and counted the top three record high temps for 2012-'17: 2017 - 23 2016 - 12 2015 - 8 2014 - 3 2013 - 3 2012 - 31
  9. Hoosier is right. I know that this is anecdotal, but you don't get seven daily record high temperatures a year at FWA with a permanent western ridge, which we have done for the past two years. 2013 and 2014 are years where the western ridge was more prominent. FWA daily record highs for the past 6 years: 2017 - 7 (so far) 2016 - 7 2015 - 5 2014 - 0 2013 - 1 2012 - 13 lol
  10. I have 988.4 here. I think the low passed nearly overhead a short time ago.
  11. 3.23" here since last night, almost three inches since 7 AM. Still sitting at 47°. Waiting on frontal passage to see if we can get some flakes.
  12. Chicago Storm is gonna get buried.
  13. For those interested, the Capital Weather Gang has an article in yesterday's Washington Post concerning Cohen's Siberian October Snow Correlation or whatever it's called. Also a couple of interesting thoughts in the comments section if you're one to peruse those. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/capital-weather-gang/wp/2017/11/16/snow-in-siberia-presents-mixed-signals-about-the-winter-outlook-in-eastern-u-s/?tid=sm_tw&utm_term=.d8670abe62bf#comments
  14. Thanks for posting that radar loop. I also remember that. I ended up with 1.2" of snow with the wrap around. I also remember this forecast for that day (Mayan calendar):
  15. Someone would get blizzard conditions if it flips to snow and meets time length criteria. Lots of ifs. I would get trained by multiple rounds of thunderstorms before the low blows by.
