April 2021 General Discussion

Recommended Posts

There's a subtle mesolow the HRRR has been hinting at currently in eastern IL. The front has more or less stalled over Newton & Benton counties in IN as that low lifts northwards ahead of a decent s/w trough; it'll probably stall over Lake Co shortly. Will be a decent focus for showers and embedded storms with a heavy rain threat along and to the west of it. Any isolated severe threat will be just east across the rest of IN into SW MI.

            A BRIEF 
            TORNADO CAUSED DAMAGE TO SEVERAL 
            MANUFACTURED HOMES IN THE SOUTHWEST PART OF 
            CEDAR RAPIDS WEDNESDAY EVENING. ONE HOME 
            SUSTAINED SIGNIFICANT ROOF DAMAGE, WITH 
            ADDITIONAL SIDING DAMAGE TO NEARBY HOMES. 
            ONE PERSON SUSTAINED MINOR INJURIES FROM 
            GLASS AFTER THEIR BEDROOM WINDOW BLEW IN. 
            THE TORNADO LOFTED DEBRIS INTO A NEARBY 
            FIELD. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS WERE AROUND 
            85 MPH AND THE TORNADO WAS RATED EF-0.

Have had three micro-cells drift overhead so far today... each cloudburst lasted approximately 6 minutes... yet deep puddles and water running along the sides of the roads after each one.  These cells are very efficient rain producers.  Comes in sideways too.  South facing window just pounded with big drops.  Not too much lightning though.  Few scattered strikes but I didn't hear any thunder yet.  The cells have been solidifying and producing more strikes as they move away to the northwest.

On and off T Storms here. Had a few good gusts of wind and crack of thunder. Definitely feels like spring today. Not looking forward to the cool down next week. I find it rather annoying.

A small amount of rain fell overnight and its mainly dried up, the all day light rain has been canned and now its partly sunny to mainly cloudy. The weak showers moving north are weakening and didn't do anything. Tomorrow set to 25ºC again, rain on Sun, then the rain shown for Mon has been tossed as well.

The UW Station did reach 20.5ºC at 12:30 pm but I question the non-gradual rise as it was 19.6 at 12:00 pm so meet halfway and you got 20 at 12:15 which is the same first 20 reading of the year 20 years ago right to the minute!!

It's only the first part of April though

Got a good 2 months to go before the climatological peak for severe weather in Indianapolis.

Good chance at 2"+ over a good portion of the DVN cwa tomorrow.  Some models indicate the potential for up to 3".  Gonna be pretty soggy.

I'd prefer to get those kind of amounts since it's going to be dreary no matter what.  It's a dry spring still up here.

Been a nice steady moderate to occasionally heavy rain since mid morning.  Up to 1.70".  Good chance at 3"+.

MLI is already pushing 2".

Meanwhile we remain under .1”

Just got a nice heavy thunderstorm.  Severe warning but nothing close to severe IMBY.  Not a lot of wind.  Rain came straight down.  Just big drops.  Water running along the road and grass looking soggy.  Was worried the line of showers would be broken given how past systems panned out, but this line is sharing the wealth in terms of rainfall on this side of the state at least.

Just curious, but this SO2 plume could have an effect on the coming summer. Something to watch. It is being lifted to about 16km. Any more big puffs like this and it probably will have a decent impact. Watch for real cool sunsets in the coming weeks or at least pics of them from different places around the world.

I'm expecting a couple days of rain (1-2") to move in starting tomorrow. Cool, easterly fetch and wet. Very typical April weather.

What a garbage system so far.
 

.12” of rain. Real soaker...

You make me feel better about the 0.30 in my tippy bucket. I could have handled doubled that amount but I am happy with what I got.

In the new 1991-2020 normals coming out, ORD warmest min in July went up 3 degrees, warmest max stayed the same, and coldest min in January went up 2 degrees, coldest max stayed the same.

Meanwhile at RFD coldest min in Jan went up 1 degree, coldest max stayed the same and in July the warmest min went up 1 degree and the warmest max went down 1 degree.

Very obvious increased UHI signal there for ORD.

Normal seasonal snowfall at ORD went up 2.1" to 38.4", only 0.4" at RFD to 37.1". Normal annual precip went up about 1" at both sites.
