March 2020 Discussion

Recommended Posts

Over 3.5" of rain since late last evening.  There's standing water everywhere, even 12+hrs after the rains mostly shut off.  Won't take much to get us up over the 4" mark if we get any kind of action later on.

From 3.3" snow 6 days ago, to a flash flood event, and now a PDS tor watch.  :guitar:

Strange that both ORD and PWK are 66 degrees right now, but MDW is only at 64.

Getting frequent 40-45mph gusts.  MLI hit 49mph earlier.  

The landscape has dramatically greened up after all the rain, and fixed nitrogen from the lightning.  Trees have swelled buds.  Won't be long before leaves start popping out.

Yeah, the wind has really been howling all night and morning.

I only picked up 0.39" of rain from this system... nothing Thur/Fri, nothing late Saturday.

I worked on a golf course for 3 years in college.  I want to build a 3/4 acre deck to cover my yard.  I hate grass, well that kind of grass :pimp:

Not looking forward to mowing season lol. But mid to late April means it's time for 6-7 months of grass cutting.

REALLY hope this verifies. Would probably be near record highs later in the day for some areas verbatim.

Forgot to mention...Had the first good t’storms of the year here late Friday night/early Saturday morning.

The same activity that trained cyclone moved into portions of the area. Ended up with ~2” of rain during that period here, and 1.50”+ at ORD.

ORD had 1.48” of rain on Saturday, which broke the daily precip record for the date of 1.26” (1977).

looks like some lake effect showers moving into Chicago.  Today looks like the dreariest day for awhile.  Nice warm up for the end of the week
