Frost and freeze warnings out for Tues and Wed mornings. Just like I thought in my fall forecast. Early Sept really getting on the cool side now.

Currently in the mid-upper 50's around here. Heater kicked on this morning, but that's just par for the course. Believe it or not, I keep the thermostat on during the summer. It still kicks on in early June, and a couple times during the summer.

Why? Because it keeps the cob webs from building up, and I know it will run when I need it. Just like a car that sits too long will have more problems when you run it again, than if you run it off and on. :)

The crops this year are getting hit hard in some areas, and last year was really bad overall. Hope folks are stocking up best they can, and practice fasting. Our forefathers had to go through stuff like this, what makes us better than them? The age of gluttony coming to an end? Just food for thought.

Today was the 85th consecutive day of highs of 70+ for Chicago.  Not close to the record of 117 days.  Tomorrow is a threat to break the streak.

And we're off.  Widespread elevated convection quickly taking off across the IA/MO border region.  Kind of interesting vis sat loop this afternoon/eve watching the clouds quickly develop and become widespread, and then convection popping up as the sun angle got low.  Looks like the potential for another good soaking tonight.

Showers and storms have been firing and semi-training here all day.  We haven't had a day like this all summer.

Not a lot of accumulation locally, but some areas nearby have received a healthy dose. The boundary has been slowly floating south and it should drive back north, keeping the rain chances high overnight. It will be a nice night to sleep with the windows open and hear the rain falling and thunder rumbling.

Wow. The radar along the IL/MO border blew up in the last 90 minutes!

LOT calling for some heavy rain in Chicago, where is that supposed to be developing from? Change of seasons are just crazy. Denver’s 95 to Snow in 24 hours and the hottest temp ever recorded in the U.S. Insanity.

1.52" with maybe more coming overnight. Went from a terrible dry spell to a tornado warning and numerous thunderstorms. Still a few inches in the hole but I will take anything at this point. Still a bit worries about what's going on north of me. Looks like 5+ inches in some spots and tons of flooding.

Finished with 1.78" here. Areas just to my south had 2-4". Maybe not a drought buster, but it put a dent in it.

Hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend. Spent time in Chicago seeing some family and got to experience the seasons change on the drive back. 72 in Milwaukee when I drove through, 61 in Madison an hour later and only 50 with rain when I got to Minneapolis. Pockets of maples starting to really show color.

Got down to 45 here under a thick overcast last night. We have a real shot of hitting the upper 30s in the city tonight, and potential for widespread freezes across the northland.

Down to 36 overnight.  First fire of the season in the stove this morning and with a forecast high of 49 today and tomorrow, can't help but think about the first snow that's likely just a few weeks away.

Pretty raw out there with the northeast winds, very heavy overcast, and cold rain.  Temp is 54 with lots of slow rumbles overhead.  Up to 1.70"

This is a little too drastic of a change.  Fortunately we will get back into the 70s and maybe throw an 80 in there at some point.
