November 2015 Discussion

Recommended Posts

I wish you could post them, but JB would take your head.

 

actually I think they are cool with it...maybe that's changed.  It's really not worth posting though.   Those maps are horrendously bad.

 

I know, I admit it, I resubscribed to that damn site.  It's like crack.  Funny though, the first JB column I read after re-subscribing was him touting what he believes will be a white thanksgiving for many....it never changes  :lol:

The 100% full sunshine helped a lot, it made it as high as 73 degrees way up in Traverse City.

 

That is an exceedingly rare stat at DTW. We'll see if it holds through midnight.

If the 0 holds, it will be the first day DTW has seen a skycover of 0 since August 6, 2012! (yes there have been several days with 1 since then).

Heavy drizzle and 0.15 mile visibility at KLOT right now. Same at DKB

Yeah, pretty thick out here right now. Visibility about 200 feet, with near zero in areas. Riding down the road, and you pass a telephone pole and cannot see the next one.

Reminds me of the fog you get after a quick warmup over snow covered ground.

Usually that's the thickest fog you come across. At least from my experiences with winter fog.

Fog is coming now here - seeing a little haze in the air here now.

Shame it's so thick, saw some great photos of last nights aurora on LOT's Facebook, and tonight's aurora forecast looked even better.

In all honesty, the fog forming conditions will be better for Northern Indiana/Southern MI tonight, the stuff in Illinois today is wicked.

Yeah tonight when the moisture moves in we are going to have some thick fog, it is what will make 70 hard on Thursday but we will be starting at 56 Thursday morning so we won't have far to climb.

I'm ecstatic about this extremely warm November weather, I'm certain this is the warmest stretch I've seen during this month. Should hopefully reach the big two oh later today (another occurrence I can't recall last) and noticed the low temperature for Thursday cited as 15ºC, that's just ridiculous! That's quite a bit higher than the average high for the same date and within record high striking distance. A ton of strange flies coming out of the woodwork outside.

All this talk of fog reminds me of 2/4/2008, visibilities were zero, by the afternoon traveling was flat out dangerous, by far the thickest fog I've ever seen. I remember visibilities were zero for much of the day if I remember correctly.

Its official - November 3, 2015 was the first day at DTW to have 0 skycover since August 6, 2012! In that time frame between days of 0 skycover, DTW had 198 days of 10 skycover :lol: (and of course, several "1"s and many "9s").

I'm not sure if you mean that literally, but if so, yes, really, I have seen a lot of strange flies. Been taking advantage of the weather to ride my bike to work. Have seen some weird flies the last few days I've never seen before. Like a cross between a sweat bee, a fly, and a yellow jacket. Must be some weird critter that is thriving in the late warmth because it has already lost a natural predator to one of the freezes. Or something like that.

 

Those are exactly the critters I saw, they were clustered on the edge of a deck near vegetation and they were elongated in shape and had thin but good sized wings on them that they didn't use. Just crawling in a bunch on the surface making a light sound.
