Quite the storm yesterday evening.  That was the first time I've received a push emergency weather alert on my phone for a severe thunderstorm warning.  We had power flicker, but never went out.  Looks like just southwest of here there were alot of power outages.  More storms this morning.... really adding to the wet summer total.  

Starting to notice some trees getting some early color.  Wonder if the wet, cloudy summer causes that?

The winds were intense with the line yesterday evening. Just some small branches down in my yard but noticed quite a few large trees toppled driving to work. More storms again this morning. I haven't noticed any color just yet. The maples with leaf spot are starting to drop some leaves though.

Third warmest August, and third warmest summer on record at Akron/Canton. The all-time warmest summers occurred "way back" in 2016 and 2020, narrowly edging out this past summer. Also the top 4 warmest summers there have occurred in the past six years (2016, 2018, 2020, and 2021).

Idk. Seemed normal temp wise and very wet  on the eastside of CLE. It would be interesting to see the max/min departures. I'm guessing the min's are responsible. 

Agreed, this summer was wet and humid.   Night time lows most likely causing this.

I wonder why CLE's numbers weren't posted, or the min vs. max departures. Looks look CLE only hit 90 6x over the Summer. The humidity and night time lows definitely caused the departures.

I didn't include CLE because of apparent sensor issues over the past couple of years. CLE has been running about 1-1.5F cooler, relative to average, than the other first-order climate sites in CLE's forecast office. Based on climatological normals, CLE should be the second warmest site in the summer (TOL being first warmest) and the warmest in the winter. Yet, inexplicably, it's been reporting the second coldest temperatures in the WFO (only YNG cooler). So it would appear that the temperature sensor is currently reading too low.

Regardless, since you asked, it was the 13th warmest summer in Cleveland, tied with 2011, 2002, and 1934. A sensor error of a degree or so can make a huge difference in the summer rankings since there's not that much variance in the temperature records compared to other seasons. Another degree would have put it closer in line to surrounding sites  (TOL, MFD, CAK and ERI), all of which recorded top three hottest summers. I would surmise that, if it didn't feel too hot, it was likely due to how many recent years are on this list (2016, 2010, 2005, 2018, 2012, 2017, 2021, 2011, 2002, 2019).

Noticing some color starting to pop locally. Picked up .75" of rain last night... after the dry start to September we needed it. 

Pulled the mix/max departures for the Summer. Probably fair to say the min's are responsible for the positive departures :). I doubt anyone would classify this Summer as a scorcher.

Ya, figured it was the lows.... definitely not a hot summer by any means. 

Color change is underway, hoping for a pleasant fall season.  

Let's hope the wet pattern can continue into winter.  Speaking of winter...any idea why it takes Cle so long to post the winter observation totals?   I always like comparing what I/we measure against other snowbelt areas.

CLE's always slow. Hoping for a decent LES season. Is this what you are referring to?  https://www.weather.gov/cle/Climate_Snowfall_2019-20
