Fall/Winter 2020/21 Banter Thread

Recommended Posts

With all the COVID talk and the fact that we're weeks into Fall already we need a fresh start on this board.

This upcoming week is going to be lovely but the lack of rain/severe this fall has been disappointing.  Hoping with can get some dynamic fall systems toward the end of the month that can bring some rain/wind/severe and backside snow.

Took Wednesday-Friday off this week so I can have a 5-day stretch to enjoy the nice weather. When I put in for the days off the forecast was still in fantasy range; but it worked out nicely. :sun:

Nice. :thumbsup: Typical mid-late Fall weather this week with a warming trend by the weekend. It's Thanksgiving this weekend in Canada so definitely looking forward to a stellar long weekend.

Euro and CFS are not only an overall torch for the rest of Oct, but also for Nov as well.

 

Biggest torch month on Euro is actually Jan.

The Euro winter prog was not the greatest look.

If that's the case I'll have started the most popular thread in forum history.   My only hope is for more moisture, in whatever form.  I can handle warm if there are storms to track

Louisiana is trying to do its best Florida 2004 impersonation.

Looks like a chance for more development in the Western Caribbean after 10/15, but climo says that should stay east of Louisiana

Was supposed to be sunny today. Instead it's cloudy and dark. On the bright side, hit 70F for the first time this month. Might be our last for the year.

With today's stunning disappointment for sunshine, and a few hours of possible quality weather on Monday, followed by cold temps and rain next week, I question the seasonal outlook of a warmer than average fall. I don't check the 500 mb forecast from any model, it'll just put me in a bad mood. I doubt I'll get a blizzard or a 20ºC Christmas day with some sun so why would I have any joy for the upcoming period of Zzzz.

I don't see a ~29ºC anywhere on my 7-day so no stellar weather except maybe for 1 hour on Monday.

:lmao: To be honest, I know some right off the boat. But most of the time I have to google "F to C" just so you guys can understand. I personally like C > F and km/hr > mph but I prefer inches > cm for snow.

I'm surprised with your preference for warmer weather you're living in the snowbelt haha. But I agree. I honestly thought we'd have an awesome sunny week but it's been gloomy. I suspect it's because the lakes are still running warm even though the air temperature is cold creating more condensation and hence more clouds and mist. 

20's are increasingly rare from Nov-Mar in Ontario. We might get the odd one or two in March but that's rare. YYZ has only hit 20C 4 times since 2000. 1980's and 1990's had several but prior to that it was maybe once every few years. Otherwise, our best chance at hitting 20C again is April 2021 so strap in.

Some shockingly cold temps for October are occurring, or will soon occur, in MT/WY/CO/NE.  Laramie, WY may drop to -16, which would be the coldest temp on record so early in the season (October record low is -18 on 10/30/1993). 

Most impressive relative to climo may be Billings, MT.  Tomorrow morning, it may hit 4...which would shatter the record low of 18 set in 1997.  Monday morning may hit -2; the record low is 22 set in 1970.  Breaking a daily record by 24 degrees...not bad. :stun:  Records in Billings go back to 1934.  There has only been one sub-zero October day in Billings in recorded history (-7 on 10/30/1991).

How to tell it is autumn? When you look at the visual satellite and over 80% of the lower 48 is having cloudy conditions.

Last I checked, October 25th is squarely in autumn territory.

Can we at least get some severe weather outbreaks before the cold really locks in? Upcoming pattern after this little tease of winter looks to turn milder but maddeningly quiescent, which seems to be the rule in this region of late apart from some random day in August.

10th anniversary of the Octobomb.  Besides being about the deepest non-tropical system you will ever see in the lower 48, it brought a very unusual tornado outbreak from a temporal perspective.  It got started after 4 am in Illinois and was basically over in this sub by noon.  Not going to find many tornado outbreaks in the Midwest that fall in that time window.

Hopefully we get an airmass like that in our area in the heart of winter, like the 1995-96 La Niña. The infamous -60 in Tower, MN...and -40s in parts of IA.

Another interesting component of this arctic outbreak is the dry air over the southwest. Las Vegas was 59/-15 this afternoon with very dry NE winds, RH 4%. 
 

The record dry streak continues in Las Vegas. 189 days and counting since the last measurable rainfall on 4/20/2020.

I wonder if it's easier to get negative departures of that magnitude than it would be to get positive departures ? I couldn't imagine Denver having a high temp of 106 in late October.
