Hoosier

June 2020 General Discussion

Recommended Posts

Wouldn’t be summer without Hoosier calling for drought and endless heat. He’s the summer version of winter JB. :D 

This dry stretch has been fantastic though. Keep it coming.

Never understood why more people don’t plant native wildflowers/prairie grasses. Looks nicer, less maintenance and great for environment.

I picked up almost a half inch of rain this morning from the bubbly remnants of the central/western Iowa convection.  There were a couple rumbles, but that's it.  The vast majority of our rain this year has been thunder-less.

Models are still pretty bullish in general through tomorrow, but it should also be a bit hit-n-miss.

There is a T-storm to the SE of London that is almost stationary. A few unincorporated towns are probably getting quite the rainfall totals. 

I just checked as I saw some darker clouds building nearby, ending the blue sky streak. Some of these almost stationary cells are moving nearly due west somehow, crazy.

I'm under a severe thunderstorm watch for no reason and in the text they warn of possible landspout funnel clouds, never seen that before. Also for isolated large hail to quarters, I'm going to guess I'm not going to get it this afternoon but near London/K-W/Newmarket maybe?

Keeping it green and short is pointless where I live.  Everywhere is sand.  Wild grass is very high from all the rain in May, but of course mowed grass is already going dormant.

Picked up 0.82” on a very small stationary storm. Right at the tail end I drove to pick up a pizza. Not even a half a mile away they didn’t pick up a single drop. 

It’s feast or famine out there.

Not this region but Caribou Maine tied their all time record of 96 today and for a good portion of the day was the hottest location in the entire country. #2020 folks.

And Charlottetown PEI hit their highest temp in 7 years. Crazy that it’s happened in June.

Siberia is also having a prolonged heat wave. Verkhoyansk, north of the arctic circle, may be well into the 90s over the next few days. I think their June monthly record high is 93. 
 

Verkhoyansk has the largest temperature range on Earth, 189 degrees. All time high 99, all time low -90.

Have you guys seen that message about the NWS Proposed Changes to the alerts that they use? Basically, getting rid of the "Advisory" messages, among others.

I only saw it on the NWS-LOT Page along with the link to the NWS Survey. I've filled it out but I wonder how many are for or against it.

Here's the link to the NWS Page (the link to the actual survey is on there).

https://www.weather.gov/lot/AdvisoryChange

I think they should keep advisories.  They are simple and they work.  You can see the colored advisory area on the map.  I filled out the survey.

Apparently we got in trouble and NCEP took our toy away.

It's still running on the ESRL page. Obviously not nearly as good an interface as COD. https://rapidrefresh.noaa.gov/hrrr/HRRR/Welcome.cgi?dsKey=hrrr_jet

Some nice towers bubbling up this afternoon.  Nice little pulsers popping now and again.  Working outside on a project this afternoon, feels a little muggy with little to no wind and dews pushing 70.  Some outflow from one of the cells would be a plus.

Hope the lake shadow pattern breaks at some point.  It's annoying seeing thunder everywhere except the lee of Lake Michigan.  Typical late June pattern.

Hit 90 before the first round of storms came. Received 1.11" of rain so far today. May very well break the daily maximum rainfall record of 1.62" set in 1942.
