August 2019 General Discussion

Recommended Posts

Its the 10 year anniversary of Ontario's largest tornado outbreak including 4 F2 tornadoes. I remember staying up all night scouring YouTube for all kinds of tornado videos of the day.

There are some decent cells around my part this evening - not common. Just some lightning so far. The "storms" on Sunday were beyond pathetic here but strong in the Lucan/Mitchell areas. I got a severe warning moments after the heaviest of the rain showers past me with a few flashes of lightning. I LOVE Environment Canada as they crack me up with those warnings after the "rain showers" are done with!!

EDIT: Best thunderstorm of the year here just a short while ago. Nice lightning, large raindrops to start with that storm. The most significant CG strike while I was outside ever also occurred. I've never had a good look at a strike like that without a window being in front of me. This was WF driven, colour me shocked :lol:.

Picked up 2.21" of rain here in downtown last night and this morning. Radar estimates are in the three to four inch range since last night in portions of Putnam and Hancock County here in Northwest Ohio.

Jim,

I recently learned that Toledo is not *just* above normal precip on the year-- Toledo's precip from January 1st to August 22nd is nearly at the top of the list, historically.

Storm system that is supposed to come Monday through Tuesday looks rather fall-like (mainly on Monday). GFS over the past few runs has highs only in the low to mid 60s while the Euro has highs only reaching up to the low 70s during the day on Monday.

Picked up 1.50" of rain last evening and early this morning.  The little mini drought is pretty much over.

Picked up 2.04 in my backyard. Got trained a little bit early this morning.

Going to end up being a fairly unremarkable summer as far as temp anomalies.  Generally speaking, July was the warmest month relative to average.
