MDW and PWK both hit 86 today, while ORD only hit 83...? What the F?????? I know on warm days ORD can sometimes run a degree cooler for some reason. But this is getting out of hand.

Looks like a dullish stretch coming up around here.  Not much in the way of severe chances or heavy rains.   

You should have stayed at LAF. Actually the atmosphere unzipped between me and LAF. Only 1.4 here. I see a report of 3+ just south of Frankfort.

 

The odd thing was the first inch here was a normal Midwest summer deluge. Wind and rain blowing every which direction. Then there was a 30 to 45 minutes pause. The last half an inch came straight down with no wind. I used to see that more on Taiwan with the marine influence. Kind of strange to see it in Indiana.

Would be fairly unusual to get 850 mb temps below 0C that far south at this time of year.  A week out so ample opportunity to modify in the coming days... we'll see.

Imagine actually complaining about it being 83 outside

Nah, it's because there's something wrong with the ASOS at ORD, or PWK, or both. PWK is north of ORD, there's no reason it should have been three degrees warmer there. Someone really needs to look into this issue. It was never like this in the past.

Yep, this pattern is completely out of control and messed up. Even 2013-2015 wasn't this bad.

PWK is probably running warm. Part of the issue is that the tolerance interval is at least 3 degrees if I'm not mistaken, so even though it stands out to those of us that follow this stuff every day, it hasn't risen to the level of getting a trouble ticket requiring maintenance. Also, hate to say it but it's not been a priority with how active it's been. I'll mention it to the electronics techs next week if it continues to run warm.

Pretty crazy to see most of the farm fields untouched now a week into June.  Never seen that before.  There's a few random fields where not only is the corn planted, but it's over a foot tall.  A small percentage of farmers were able to get some planting done awhile back.  

Looking at the satellite comparison between last year and this year shows a definite difference.  Definitely a lack of green compared to last year.

Top pic is 6/5/18, and bottom pic is 6/5/19.

Been loving the lack of heat. Hopefully we can keep this going through summer.

Hope we have 3 weeks straight of 90-100 as soon as possible :maphot:

This month looks like a no-go. 1/3rd of met summer gone by that point.

After the extreme humidity the last few summers I'm down a for a cooler/less humid summer.  Sucks for storms, but this area really needs to dry out for a significant amount of time.  Still lots of standing water.  Never seen it like this for so long.

This pattern is crap, nothing worse than a cold winter and cold summer.

Actually, a cold, dry winter and a warm/hot, dry summer is the worst combo.  I think most weather enthusiasts here would agree, except those who only like big temp records.

From what I've seen, most outlets are calling for a warmer than average summer, with June perhaps being coolest relative to average.  Of course there's multiple ways to get there... some high end heat spells or just consistently warmer than average (especially with lows) or warm stretches just outweighing the cool ones.  I do think that if the pattern does not begin to dry out, it will be tougher to build intense heat to the west.

not a chance in hell. Told you guys it would be a 1992 redux.

Also, the GFS is showing unprecedented cold for this region. Temps stuck in the 40s in Indiana during the day possibly... will we even see some flakes? I have no words... this is 1816 stuff right here.

Anomalous cold? Yes. Hyperbole? Yes.

Weather is just not good for palm trees.

Good luck getting a map as cold as this.

Well severe weather season has been in the crapper here in central Ohio, the rest of Ohio has done fairly well, so I’ve given up on that changing.  I will gladly take a warm/hot dry summer instead. I need something to forget the long snowy winter and prepare for next season.  Maybe 7 years in Texas spoiled me on expectations this far north.

0.68 in the tippy bucket today. And it looks like that was less than half of what a lot of people in the area got today. So I guess I am one of the lucky ones, yeah right.

3km NAM shows temps barely getting out of the 50s Wed, with rainy conditions much of the day.  Might have to make a big batch of chili! :tomato:

Can only imagine what it's going to show farther east on Thursday.
