This weather pattern SUCKS!!!  I've had enough of this cold crap.  I should not have to be wearing my winter coat within two weeks of June.  Models badly underforecasted this big cutoff low.  The NWS is talking about the cloud shield holding over the region through at least Thursday, if not Friday.  Ugh.

We'll probably totally flip the pattern, and have multiple 100 degree days in June.  I'm sure at the least we'll easily tag a few 80 degree dews with all the moisture we're getting.

It's in the 80s in northwest Minnesota lol. :facepalm:
EDIT:  107 in Texas, 80s in southern Canada.  50s in the Midwest/Ohio Valley.

78 degrees in Timmins Ontario. 75 in Ottawa. 73 in Montreal. 75 in Quebec City. 

Meanwhile - Kitchener, Guelph, and Toronto haven’t hit 70 yet this year. 

Edit: Sault Ste Marie and Owen Sound also hit 70+ today. This has to be a first.

Hands down the worst May I’ve ever experienced. This is just awful. 

It won't rank up there with the nicer Mays.

Back in the middle of the craptastic winter we just experienced, several members here proclaimed that we would also have a craptastic spring. Easy call.

Barf. Not only are we dealing with a pandemic, but Mother Nature is delivering a complete stinker of a spring. I think I speak for most when I say let’s fast forward to 2021.

Wasn’t May 2006 worse?

Regardless trees are barely leafing out here.

Another day of clouds. 4 in a row. Tough stuff mentally

14 of the last 16 months have been below average sunshine according to Skilling

We had such a cold first half of the month it's very likely we stay that below average for the month. At least a good 60% of our trees are leafed out at this point, not like we are almost to june or anything. I am so ready to move on to summer. Hopefully without more cutoffs.

Curious - is the swirling mess of clouds which seems to have sat over TN/KY this entire week anything unique? Each day I check the vis sat and it’s more of the same. I literally can’t handle this weather anymore, on top of nothing to do but sit at home. On the plus side, yard and landscape look great.

That swirling mess is a cut-off low. A cut-off low is when a low pressure system loses the jet stream's steering and gets stuck in an area, often stuck under a ridge. They can last quite a while as evidenced by this one.

Ohio Valley cutoffs happen every so often in spring. They're the bane of storm chasers and people who just want to enjoy some nice spring weather. IIRC there was one in early May 2016 but it moved east enough to allow for the sequence that produced Wynnewood, and then the DDC-Chapman sequence happened later in the month.

I seem to recall in 2009 they were still happening in July. :thumbsdown:

Edit: @Geoboy645 beat me to it.

I enjoy the light angles this time of year. From about May 7 to about August 1 my yard gets enough sun to form a dense canopy. 

I live in suburbville where most of the shade comes from houses.

On pivotal weather why do I have to have my mouse cursor on the hr numbers rather than the loop bar to show each frame? I haven't been there in a bit and that change isn't good, moronic even. Now its hard to slide the mouse through the run which I prefer to just watching a loop.

Yeah, after flirting with it in 2006, '09 and (IMO) 2018, I think 1988 has officially been dethroned as the worst season in the history of the practice (I was 2 at the time so I don't remember it personally). Ironically, our chief meteorologist said today that year was also the last time the center of a remnant tropical cyclone tracked into Wisconsin (Hurricane Gilbert, although that was at a more seasonable time of year for such an event-September).

I was hoping for some good storms to take my mind off the COVID pandemic, but instead I think the pandemic and more recently the Floyd fallout have taken my mind off the lack of storms. :(

Next week looks good for thunder according to ECMWF.  Showing a progressive zonal flow with heat over the plains.

snowing in Laramie, Wyoming right now if you thought our non-snow season wasn't short enough in the Midwest.

crazy stuff even for out west. 2019-20 was actually the longest snow season on record at Detroit from the first to last measurable snow (Nov 7 - May 10).

The void of severe weather and tornadoes in this country this year is really astounding when you look at the number of warnings issued by CWA.
