September 2019 General Discussion

Recommended Posts

Short-term dryness / drought continues to expand across the extreme lower Great Lakes and the Ohio Valley. 75% of Indiana is now either abnormally dry or in moderate drought. 65% of Ohio. 95% of Kentucky, with severe drought now showing up across north-central and eastern KY. September is all but certain now to go down as the driest September on record in all of KY, and in many locations will go down as the driest month ever on record. The month is also guaranteed to be the hottest September on record. Louisville currently has seen 18 days in the 90's, and the last 4 days of the month will hit the 90's with record highs likely the last 3 days of the month. With temps well into the 90's to start October, the all-time October high of 93 in Louisville is in serious jeopardy.

Heat combined with drought has to be the worst type of weather. Just miserable.

Something I realized years ago was periods of hot dry weather i.e. March - August 2012 are when I'm overall the happiest in general. It may be terrible for those in agriculture but its my preferred type of weather. I'm destined to live in southern Arizona.

Today was pretty fun IMBY, lots of storms popping up before noon. Best day for clouds of the year.

There may be severe weather in northern Illinois tomorrow night. The models have 3000 J/kg of CAPE with decent shear in W IL, E IA, N MO, at hour 22-24.

There continues to be an impressive band of training storms from Peoria to south of Chicago.  There are stations in the northern Peoria area with 5+".  These same locations may get more training storms tonight and end up with very impressive rain totals.

LOT issued a flood watch and mentioned totals over 5" possible. Just a question of where the heaviest band sets up.

Meanwhile KIND has had nothing. Nothing like a southeast ridge flexing it's muscle.

Man what a night.  Mom lost power so had to go over there and help out because the basement was about to flood.  Looks like there was a band of 4-8" in the area and a lot of it came rather quickly.

Wow, those are some pretty serious totals there.  Hope those areas can miss out on most of the rain the next few days.

The stuff coming later on should be more progressive than last night but not going to take much to flood now.

Last night Flash Flood Watches were posted in the Peoria area and in much of northern Illinois for the threat of additional heavy rains on top of saturated soil from Friday's deluge.

Looks like ILX dropped the ball completely on what happened in the Springfield area overnight (and early yesterday morning too).

At least 2+ inches (and some reports of even higher) and flooded roads early this morning in the SPI area.  And not a single flood watch, warning, or advisory issued for Sangamon County.

Some of the precip reports:

Dews are running 72-73 around here... pretty swampy for being on the verge of October.  Getting over a half foot of rain recently could be contributing a little to the cause.

Louisville has officially hit 98 degrees, breaking the old record by 4 degrees. Fortunately, dewpoints are only in the mid 60's thanks partly to the parched earth, but it's still disgustingly hot.
