Honestly, I would take last spring over this spring. Sure, last April was awful, but at least the cold was pretty much done by April 20. Also had a very nice May last year too. This year, it's been non-stop cold, dreary weather. And it looks to continue that way for the foreseeable future.

Sorry about your luck-

We dropped into the 30s again this morning.  Tonight is finally the last cold night before Mother Nature switches us to a genuine late-spring pattern.

1230PM and it’s 48 degrees outside. This has to be one of the most miserable Mother’s Day weekends I have ever seen. 

 

BUT long range is looking great. In fact, I have mid 80’s in my forecast next weekend. We are almost there everyone.

Only reached 52. The record low maximum temperature for today is 48 in 1960. Could very well top the same or just below tomorrow with NWS only forecasting highs in the mid 50s. The record low maximum temperature for tomorrow is 49 in 1914. Come on already, Tuesday! #blackberrywinter

So the prognosticators of an epic Winter with a persistent Negative NAO nailed it!  Just 3 months late.

Put this pattern in January and you bury the Upper Ohio Valley with lots of snow and cold.  Rat Fart!

Persistent Negative NAO is much better for the east coast. We would probably get a lot of cold and dry if a negative NAO persisted all winter.

Yesterday’s high of 48 degrees in Champaign tied the record for the lowest max temperature for May 12th since 2006. Multiple stations across central Illinois tied or broke low max temps as well. Goodbye rotten weekend. Hello gorgeous week.

Indiana does not look too shabby also. Thank you Illinois for sharing your clouds with us so those of us east of you have nice sunsets too.

You can see the progression of the sunset in my Clouds thread in the photography section if you want.

Pretty toasty day today at 91.  MLI also hit 91, which was good for a new record.  Hard to believe it was snowing and sleeting < 3 weeks ago.

Cu has been bubbling up pretty good in the northern/northeastern sky.  Cap holding strong though.

91?  Dang.  Almost 20 degrees cooler here.

Total bust here, just some good lightning and a few hundredths of an inch of rain.  It has just been a real struggle to get anything this spring.

Tomorrow everything leaps north of my area.  Hopefully, we can scrape something out of this pattern late in the weekend.

I was at work when that MCS rolled through but there was 0.85 in the tippy bucket when I got home. Lots of leaves liberated from the trees also. Must have been a decent blow.

Picked up 0.57" this evening.  Small hail cored missed a bit north earlier, but we picked up a brief period of peas a short while ago.  Also had 40mph winds as well.  Radar showed a small pocket of 60-70kts down near Hillsdale, so may see some tree damage on the way in to work tomorrow.

A blow or hail? We had a leaf stripping hail storm tonight. EVERY tree in the area lost a ton of leaves.

Allen County Ohio (Lima area) got up to 3.63" of rain last night with the training thunderstorms. (CoCoRAHS) Paulding County was also above 3". Just what the farmers don't need.

A few uprooted large trees just west of Hillsdale, and several other large trees with significant damage.  Definitely 70+mph winds went through that area.

Only 60 degrees here, which is over 30 degrees cooler than this time yesterday.  Warmth not too far away though, as MLI is at 70.
