  1. We both get what we like this coming week: Today Sunny and hot, with a high near 91. Calm wind becoming east around 5 mph in the afternoon. Sunday Sunny, with a high near 88. Southeast wind around 5 mph. Thursday Mostly sunny, with a high near 69. Friday Mostly sunny, with a high near 64.
  2. Jon, I like you and feel that you add a lot to the board, but lol. I enjoy tracking anomalous weather, no matter whether it's hot/cold, wet/dry, so this is fun.
  3. Moderate drought sneaking into the Hoosier state near IND. We're still good up here, although the grass is showing signs of dryness/heat stress.
  4. Can someone explain the meteorology of 2nd year Ninas and why it is different than a single year one?
  5. Was that an outflow? There were a couple of cells move through the area a little later and it happened later in the evening in IND's CWA. From NWSChat: "The TDWR capturing the outflow these storms have thrown out pretty nicely. Seeing 30-35mph winds in a narrow band with the outflow. Crawfordsville AWOS station supported that with a 34mph gust when it passed." BTW, IND got 89'd yesterday.
  6. I guess that I'd rather depend on an attempt at a long range forecast through science than reading a caterpillar's butt or whatever.
  7. It looks like the heat won't make it far enough east this week for DAY to hit 90°
  8. Outer cloud bands all the way into Canada
  9. Still pretty darned impressive
  10. It's like wishing for a phase in January.
  11. Made me look. This morning's Euro runs the remnant right up the middle of FL and as a result, dying a faster death as it reaches Memphis. Meanwhile, the GFS has a similar track to yesterday, except it delivers the goods (wind and rain) to KY, SW MO, Southern IN and IL and most of OH with the low remaining sub 1000 until reaching Western KY before dying a slow death, probably thanks to its' depiction of sliding off of the coast until reaching GA. The Canadian remains no dice.
  12. I haven't heard this used in a long time: Main trough over the area Wednesday along with several smaller scale short waves and lake enhancement. This should keep scattered to numerous showers across the northwest in the morning with slow expansion east away from lake as trough slides east along with diurnal heating. Steep mid level lapse rates and a few hundred J/kg of instability will be enough to support a few stronger updrafts and thunder potential. 500mb temps drop to -23C with surface dewpoints in the lower 50s. This brings old school but reliable 50/20 rule into play which would support up to three quarter inch hail with any thunderstorm. Brief heavy downpours also possible as these early season lake enhanced events with strong synoptic influence often produce some efficient rainfall rates. With thermal trough in place and expected mostly cloudy skies...temperatures will be slow to moderate during the day and may struggle to reach 60 in some locations.
  13. Except you get an August 24th that sneaks up on you.
