Oops! Meant to post this yesterday Niko. Yeah, we caught the edge of the bad stuff that rolled onshore near Muskegon and tracked SE towards Jackson. Avoided the damage and power-out conditions though, which I'm thankful for. Don't need that part tbh

We had trees knocked down here in SEMI and some power outages. Small hail was also reported along with 2 funnel clouds. It finally got active yesterday in terms of thunderstorm activity. :D

Lows tonight into the 50s. Nice, cool air dominating the region before things get more humid and warmer next week along with more developing thunderstorms.

OMG! Shoot me now if we see anything similar to last winter :rolleyes:

That would be very disappointing. :wacko: :blink: Tbh, I have a feeling this upcoming winter will be a good one. Two years in a row of boring winters is enough. Could there be a 3rd winter to follow in terms of being snowless and mild?! Hope not. :unsure:

He may be talking about the Arctic regions. Not sure. High latitude blockin in low solar suggests warmer winters in the arctic.

 

Another sneak peak into the start of Winter...latest Euro Monthly showing a fast start to Winter???

 

December...

He did also say look for early snowstorms in late Sept and Oct. Presumably in places where that happens like the mountain west. Not in the S GL's

Gorgeous evening on tap here in SEMI. Wow, for this time of the year, its a given. Currently clear skies, RH @ 35%, DP @ 51F and air Temp @ 72F and dropping into the 50s overnight. A night to let mother nature bring in some fresh air. :D

I'm off to do my Sun morning 4mi hike. Current temp 92F with a 62F DP! Thankfully, it's a bit overcast. Highest DP's of the season out here so far. Many storms formed over the northern and southern valley. Hope I can score some today!

Stunning photos! That sounds like an epic hike. Wish I could have been there doing the same! How does the saying go, "A picture is worth a thousand words?" That is an experience of a lifetime. Much better than my hike this morning of a new PR 5.5 miles with a temp 98F and 62F DP!

It was truly amazing, navigating was a bit rough though. We ended up off trail for a day or so.

98F hike? Now that's not too pleasant.

Getting off trail could be a bit scary, esp in the mountainous terrain, unless it was planned of course. B)

 

Monsoon season over here can get pretty humid.  The high temps lower into the low/mid 100's but you get the humidity.  I actually don't mind the more humid airmass.  It's a change in the weather that excites me over here, esp when its been bone dry and hot for the entire month of June.

Yeah, some of the members of my group were freaking out a bit. I knew where we had to go, but it wasn't following the trail. I wouldn't say we were lost, just misguided. As long as one has a map, compass, and coordinates one can get out of most things. I was more worried about falling into a buried stream.

You know how people say dry heat is better? I've always thought the opposite.

Dry heat is indeed better for those who suffer from arthritis or bone/joint problems.  Many who come here experience a better way of life due to the dry heat.  However, don't let it fool you, it still is d**n hot!

It was only 2 weeks ago the so called experts forecast a record warm winter for Australia due to above average sea temps in the Pacific. Yes 2 weeks ago. This is exactly why there are skeptics on global warming. Which got the name changed to climate change. Because they are always wrong.

I saw a glimpse of the new Euro Seasonal and it blossoms the Alaskan Ridge in November with a trough carved out in the west/central CONUS along with a EC Ridge.  In December, the entire hemispheric pattern amplifies and a big trough forms over the central/eastern CONUS.  Looks like the west coast ridge becomes a dominant feature with a slight SE ridge.  In January, the NW NAMER ridge blossoms as well as the EC ridge.  An ideal pattern for fans of winter weather on our forum!

I love the local area only thought process :rolleyes:  "Geez in my state it was cold last winter. Pfft to GLOBAL warming." This of course is a larger area than a state, but you get my point.

Just like when we get a record low in the summer or a record high in the winter and people say it's one way or the other in regards to global warming. That specific event individually doesn't mean sh*t. 

Every month this year, the planet has been in the top 3 warmest since record keeping of this type began in 1880, keeping with the same pattern we've seen for decades now(save for 1 or 2 exceptions).

That's all I'm going to say about this as this isn't the thread for that and this topic has been laid out on this forum where everyone's opinions are already known. ;)

I'm reading you loud-n-clear on the "micro climate" thought process. The ONLY kick-back to that would be the "coldest start in 128 years" which nobody would expect correlating with a warm winter. Ofc, still a lot of their winter to play out down unda, so the jury's still out on the call for a warm winter.

The Legacy Definition of the Monsoon Season here in the valley is 3+ days with dew points of 55F+ and we officially hit the 3rd day today! It's been an amazing sight to see every night with storms moving in off the mountains into the valley with flashes of lighting and rumbles of thunder. Speaking of thunder, I was awaken by storms that blew up around midnight last night. I certainly love the change in the pattern over here. This time of year can get real beautiful looking up into the sky.

The anvils over the mountains here in California are spectacular. Saw the best overshooting top I've ever seen today.

I saw some beauties yesterday as well. I'm getting some outflow from storms as we speak. Fun time of year around these parts when the wx is normally quite boring.

Beautiful day today here in SEMI, although tomorrow the weather might be quite different.

 

My place back home is getting some unexpected strong training storms and a Flash Flood warning was issued.  Up to 2" of rains has fallen is a short period of time.

 

From abnormally dry to flood watches. I swear this is the most bi-polar spring into summer I can remember. Seems like normal wx can't exist around here lately :rolleyes:

My place is getting rocked again!  Severe T-storm warning with quarter sized hail.  Last night's torrential rains prompted a Flash Flood Emergency for McHenry/Lake counties.  Some parts got 5.5" of rain...seems like July is always a very wet month around these parts.  Last year, we got drenched and it seems to be repeating again this year.  Tons of flooding happening all across the northern burbs.

The latest JAMSTEC run came in today and it has flipped colder for the Autumn and warmer for the Winter.  Moreover, it does not have a central-based El Nino anymore and more of a neutral (+) SST anomaly.

 

Wet/Cool Autumn for the central CONUS...warm on both coasts...

Europe still looks very cold and so do parts of Russia.  I wouldn't necessarily sound the alarms for next winter bc when you look at the SST's in the N PAC and equatorial PAC, it looks good to me.

Getting hammered in St. Joe right now. Mostly a deluge of wind-driven rain that looks something like a land falling hurricane (in miniature ofc)

This is a cool shot of a plane flying through the sun and a sunspot being captured in the image as well...

Gonna be a hot one next week in LNK. Very strong South winds too to make things worse. Could see our first 100* reading of the season (came close in June at 98* but no cigar).

I wouldn't mind this if it meant a cold Fall with numerous freezes in October and maybe a Thanksgiving with white stuff on the ground. I'm a huge cold and snow lover but if we get a quick start during the Fall then it scales back in December I wouldn't mind as long as we don't have near-record low snowfall again.

Had a heatburst last night at the Omaha airport. It was still 84 degrees at 3am(ridiculous anyway), and then the winds gusted up to 35 mph and at 4am it was 90 degrees!

I've seen even more ridiculous jumps as well as dewpoints that drop way lower than what happened last night, but still kind of cool.

Hopefully tonight's storms miss those locations. Even another 1" will be devastating, the Fox river is already predicted to reach record threshold.
