It'll be in the 70s at 850 mb maybe:lol:

90s at the surface for a couple days I'm willing to bet.

Not for Milwaukee I'm pretty confident.  We couldn't even muster any 90s in the latter half of July or August into early September, and we're going to see it now in the 3rd full week of September?

Milwaukee will probably see mid to upper 80s at some point next week. Could definitely see Cyclone's area getting into the low 90s easy.

Or Minneapolis tomorrow, that's what's predicted.  Almost feels like June climo right now.  Lake is doing its work on a lot of days.

I am probably tapped out for extra fun funds like Lions games after this vacation. Buying a new car tomorrow/Friday  so the leftover vacation fund is going to the down payment on a new to me lightly used Fusion.


Damn you.

Good choice on a Fusion though, I have one.

So many great local food stops, hate that you ate at Hudson's. My bad for not thinking soon enough. 

Weather felt like summer today... 81 for a high.  This is probably my second favorite time of the year.  The first, of course, the time after Thanksgiving up until New Years. 

*Edit just to add that my third favorite time of the year would have to be in Spring when I first hear the peepers through the time the tree's begin to bud out.

It's all good man! Been a great vacation but it will be nice to get home after being on the road since Saturday.

The one I am looking at is a 2014 model, compared to my 2009 Malibu, it will be a nice upgrade.

I have a 2010 Malibu, bought it brand new with 3 miles on it, now 7.5 yrs later I have 101k miles. Ill probably wait til just before next winter then get a 2019 something or other, maybe another Malibu. I know many people with Malibus & Fusions, and have heard few complaints on either - both good cars.

 

As for the weather...we were 10-15F below normal for highs in early Sept, and will be a solid 10F above in mid-late Sept. A bit backwards but as said, this time of year is an average of extremes as the seasons start to battle. We are at the time of year when light frost is possible as is searing heat (100F on 9-15-39).

Mine I bought with 38000 miles in Dec of 10 and will have 194500 by the end of tomorrow. So 6.5 years I have put on 156500 miles.

We're expecting upper 80s here the next few days.  Hopefully, the pattern change will bring some decent rain chances.  The GFS has been showing a few over the next couple weeks.  We've still only received 1.25" of rain since July 26th and nothing since August 22nd.

Wow, welcome back.  Who's next, ChicagoWX?  

That would be nice.  Haven't talked to him in over 6 months.

Wow you like to drive! For the first 4 years I commuted from wyandotte to Southgate, the last 3 it's wyandotte to Farmington hills, so I drive a lot more now.

Eastpointe to Romulus 5 days a week. Plus I have gone to Toronto several times, went to Atlantic City and Kansas once and then this vacation. Plus did a couple of storm chases in IL.

Perfect driving weather today, nice and cloudy for 350 mile drive all going South. Decently warm to start the day though in the eastern UP 60 in St Ignace.

Last night was the first night since September 5th that we didn't get below 50F at night. The next few nights are looking to be around mid to high 50's as this late summer like warmth continues. Regardless, I got no complaints, this summer was garbage!

On a side note, I went out to Alberta last week for a couple of days and I must say, it was definitely worth it. I couldn't believe how hazy the sky was over Calgary to a point where the moon was eerily similar to a Lunar eclipse. It only got worse as I drove towards Banff where the smoke/haze was as thick as fog with a strong burning wood like smell in the air. However, a nice pattern change is expected to unfold later this week for the West, so hopefully they get some much needed rain.

Not surprisingly, expansion of the categories

In two weeks we've gone from nothing to abnormally dry to moderate drought.  It definitely looks like it.  The lawns have mostly gone dormant.  It feels like all I've been doing lately is watering the garden and new trees.

Ottumwa just set a new record for driest ever July 1st - Sep 13th period and the second driest May 1st - Sep 13th period.

Even northeast Iowa, which was drowning earlier in summer, is now entering drought.

DTW socked in the clouds, quite unfortunate because it is 77 here on the east side in the sun. Brought the nice weather back from the UP.

Grass has gone brown/dormant here too with the dry conditions. It should help warmer temps work out in the coming days though.

Yep even here after the rain we had late last month, things are starting to look dry again.

And best of all, they're both American made by Detroit-based companies. :)
