  1. The Summer of 2015 is turning into one of the all-time wettest for several locations in the Midwest. I'll try to keep up with the numbers and other stuff as we move along in time. Please feel free to add anything you come across. First up...here are the meteorological Summer rainfall total rankings-to-date through July 7th for a few major climate cities: Cleveland OH (1871-2015) 1) 10.64" in 1902 2) 9.75" in 1972 3) 9.73" in 1987 4) 9.29" in 2015 5) 8.49" in 2013 Evansville IN (1897-2015) 1) 11.44" in 1900 2) 11.09" in 1943 3) 10.76" in 1928 4) 10.00" in 1897 5) 9.87" in 2015 Fort Wayne IN (1897-2015) 1) 12.25" in 2015 2) 9.98" in 2003 3) 9.80" in 2000 4) 9.26" in 1958 5) 8.00" in 1981 Indianapolis IN (1871-2015) 1) 14.47" in 1875 2) 12.86" in 2015 3) 11.89" in 1938 4) 11.83" in 1998 5) 11.09" in 1928 Louisville KY (1873-2015) 1) 11.51" in 1960 2) 10.97" in 1896 3) 10.45" in 2015 4) 10.26" in 1942 5) 10.23" in 1998 Moline IL (1872-2015) 1) 14.10" in 2015 2) 13.55" in 1993 3) 12.64" in 1892 4) 12.22" in 2010 5) 11.17" in 2014 Peoria IL (1883-2015) 1) 11.96" in 2015 2) 11.85" in 1974 3) 10.23" in 2014 4) 9.91" in 1902 5) 9.42" in 1980 St. Louis MO (1874-2015) 1) 14.24" in 2015 2) 12.74" in 2003 3) 12.18" in 1875 4) 11.99" in 1969 5) 11.61" in 1915 Toledo OH (1871-2015) 1) 9.57" in 1969 2) 9.27" in 2008 3) 9.00" in 1981 4) 8.27" in 1892 5) 8.21" in 2015 Source of data: http://xmacis.rcc-acis.org/#
  2. Monthly mean average temperature departures for several cities/sites in the Midwest...January 2013 to April 2015. Departures based off 1981-2010 NCDC normals. Data taken from local NWS websites. Monthly mean average temperature departure counts and overall average departure....January 2013 to April 2015.

  3. 2014 coming to a close, so what's your favorite weather event/memories/moments/whatever of the past year? Outside of the cold and snow early on, it was a pretty boring year IMBY. But, here's my list of favorites: January 5 snowstorm followed by an arctic outbreak January 22 arctic front/squalls February 4-5 snowstorm January-March wintry weather to close out a historic winter 2013-14 for LAF Record cool July August 21-22 heavy rainfall event Really cold November Anyways...Happy New Year, and hopefully 2015 is a fun weather year for all.
  4. Last winter was a top 10 snowfall season for several cities in the Midwest. So, I thought it might be interesting to see what the previous top 10 seasons on the list (other than 2013-14) produced the following winter. In some cases, a number of clunkers followed those great seasons. So, you know...sh*t happens sometimes.
  5. Season snowfall totals (July-June) and December-March mean average temperatures for several cities in the eastern half of the U.S., sorted/defined by the CPC DJF (December-January-February) ONI index. Top 15 snowiest/least snowiest and coldest/warmest for each city are highlighted. Mean season snowfall and DJFM temperature values: 1949-50 to 2013-14 Mean average temperatures are calculated by an "average of days", rather than "average of months". If anyone sees any errors in the data presented, please let me know. CPC ONI data: http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/analysis_monitoring/ensostuff/ensoyears.shtml City snowfall/temperature data: http://xmacis.rcc-acis.org/# Season snowfall totals: Part I
  6. Season snowfall totals and the DJFM mean NAO and AO/NAM states for 16 Midwest and Northeast cities. I used the DJFM NAO and AO/NAM states as defined by Dr. James Hurrell: https://climatedataguide.ucar.edu/climate-data/hurrell-north-atlantic-oscillation-nao-index-station-based https://climatedataguide.ucar.edu/climate-data/hurrell-wintertime-slp-based-northern-annular-mode-nam-index First up, the overall statistics sorted by DJFM NAO values. I used median season snowfall totals for each city (1899-00 to 2013-14), to see if a season was "above normal" (AN), "below normal" (BN), or "around normal" (NM). HI in the chart is highest season total in each category, LO is the lowest, and AVG would be the average snowfall. Thing to keep in mind in all of this, is that these are all statistically based values/results. What the actual hemispheric charts look like may vary from certain NAO and AO/NAM values...and thus differing outcomes in some seasons. So despite all of this...buyer beware. Still, I think it's kind of interesting to see it broke down statistically. Columbus and Des Moines do better overall, in -NAO DJFM regimes. Green Bay is pretty much a toss up...and then you have Detroit, which does better overall in +NAO seasons. Matter of fact, it looks they are the opposite of every Midwest city in most categories. Indianapolis and St. Louis have better seasons with a -NAO...but I was a little surprised how badly STL did in strong -NAO's (-3 or lower). Chicago and Minneapolis are a little more mixed. Boston, Buffalo, and Burlington all seem to like a -NAO. Washington DC does too, as long as it's -2 or lower where 75% of the seasons are above the longterm median. A weak +NAO also sees DCA do well. All four have better season snowfall totals, overall, in -NAO winters...PIT especially so. PWM isn't as "dependent"...but still does better in -NAO seasons, -1 or lower particularly. Individual season charts up next.
  7. Some summer climatology for several sites in the Midwest. I'll have more stuff to post soon. 1984-2013 mean average temperature and precipitation. 1984-2013 mean maximum and minimum temperatures. 1984-2013 mean number of 90º+ and 100º+ days (values rounded up/down). All values are "average of days" and are raw numbers (no smoothing). May differ from the NCDC method.
