Glad to see Omaha getting a decent hit with heavy rain finally. We're getting some good stuff here too. Severe weather wise this was a bust, but the gust front delivered severe winds and can't ever complain about rain when we get it. Beggars can't be choosers in a dust bowl year like this. I have a bone or two to pick with multiple NWS offices, but I do that rant tomorrow. I think I'm done on here for the night. Hope you guys enjoyed seeing me talk to myself in here!

Took a look at radar estimates and pretty much all of E NE and SW IA received close to 1.5"-2"+ of rain last night.  This should help alleviate some of the drought concerns.

This was a nice grab as it looks like we're entering into another prolonged dry death ridge period. Rain chances this year have been few and far between so last night's rain was a nice get.

The pre-summer idea of NE riding the edge of the summer ridge is working out pretty well.  I wouldn't say your gonna get stuck in a lowsy pattern of plain ol' heat and no storm complexes.  Next week features a classic "ring of fire" pattern and I'd watch for some stormy periods.

Low 60s here this morning with an east wind. Very refreshing and a complete contrast to last weekend. 0.5-0.75” of rain in the forecast today but I doubt we get that much. The line approaching from the west is decaying and another line is firing east of here.

This morning cannot be any more picture perfect. 70.0*F currently with a nice North breeze and dew point in the lower 60s. Nice to have a bit of a break between scorchers. 2 more days of this after today then it's back to the reality of what a death ridge is all about. Nowhere as bad as last week, however.

MPX removed all mention of thunder late this morning due to unfavorable conditions....and now it’s storming pretty good. The best thing about weather is that it might never be fully understood. Haha.

Yesterday's storm complex could not have been handled any worse by OAX or the SPC. I called it yesterday when I said the moderate risk area should be moved Northeast. It favored Central Nebraska for some reason when the severe weather ended up being mainly in Northeast/East Central Nebraska. I am really not sure why both OAX and the SPC thought the severe weather would be all in Central Nebraska. But what really irked me is when OAX expired the severe thunderstorm warning as it was approaching here and completely left the storm alone despite the fact that the outflow boundary still packed severe wind gusts (I measured 60mph). If they hadn't issued a flood advisory for here later on I would have thought they fell asleep at the computer or something. I get their job is hard during severe weather events thus why I usually don't criticize them if they miss something but this was just ridiculous. End of rant on this.

I don't really know why I complain about the central CONUS ridge. It's a near yearly feature at some point in every summer. I guess I've been spoiled by having it in September the last 3 years when it's hard to get 90+ for long.

Went to the meat market to pick up a steak for tonight and the place was packed. I'm assuming everyone is wanting to grill outside on a beautiful Saturday evening like this. 72.3°F.

June is often cited as the most pleasant month across the lower 48 and thus gets voted as "favorite month" by a majority of peeps down thru our nation's history. One peek at this late morning's map is a "text book example" of quiet wx

And just like we flipped to true warmth around May 1st here in the Mitten, we've flipped back to a cool-ish and rainy pattern after about a solid week of record scorching to finish May. This is a welcomed relief I'll add and perfect timing delivered sunny and 75F with low humidity for my sons (my twin sons) graduation party yesterday afternoon. Everyone across SWMI was commenting on what an absolutely gorgeous late spring day it was. This early morning's T-showers here in Marshall mean I shouldn't need to worry about my recently planted flower garden getting dry either. If the entire summer could manage to be like this it'd be gr8

Back from the cruise. Had a great time. The yard hadn’t been mowed for 10 days, man it was tall. Very lush conditions here with good rains I heard over the last week and a half. Low this morning was 50 degrees. Right now a temp of 72 with a dew point of 47. Going to enjoy it as I know that heat and humidity will make their return.

Jaster, lows next week in the 40s for MBY, if you can believe that. Quick warm-up though into the 80s returns and stays put.

I’m laying out IMBY with a nice WNW breeze and a 74F temp. About as perfect as you can ask for. We’ll see more of this type of wx Week 2 and 3 out by you. Seasonal temps here throughout the coming week ain’t too shabby. Give or take a day or two AN.

There is a good chance that much of  Michigan has seen the warmest days of this summer season already. At this point the warmest days in 2018 are Grand Rapids 94°, Lansing 93°, Muskegon 96°, Detroit 94°,Flint 92°, Saginaw 92° in northern lower Alpena 90° Houghton Lake 91° in the UP Sault Ste Marie 84° Marquette 87° Houghton 84°

Hope you had a phenomenal trip with the fam!  The last time I went on a cruise was way back in '93, a week after the March Superstorm when I was just a kid.  I'd like to take another cruise someday.  The shear size of these gigantic vessels is just amazing how they build them nowadays with all the details inside the ship.  I bet you had a blast.

 

I decided to extend this post and add some longer range thoughts as I believe the GEFS are starting to line up with my thoughts and the LRC.  Did the GEFS take the lead again advertising Tropical Trouble down in the Gulf???  I believe so.  Why you ask??  I use the LRC's cycle #1 during the summer season bc they tend to behave similarly as the jet relaxes quite a bit during this season and back in October the jet is beginning to intensify.  Anyway, back during Oct 22nd-25th, we had a GOMEX low that tracked up from the Gulf states, specifically on the 22nd/23rd.  Today's 12z GEFS sure look identical and match up to the LRC's pattern down in the Gulf around the 12th/13th of the month.  We won't have a GL bomb, but the system near the Gulf matches up quite well.  It's going to be busy season in the Gulf states.

 

gfs-ens_mslpaNorm_us_37.png

 

 

What happens after that is quite interesting and I think we will start seeing more amplifying troughs as the waters in the NE PAC have warmed up significantly last month as @OkWx showed in the Summer thread.  Back on Oct 18th-23rd, the Polar Vortex retrograded west into Alaska and then ultimately blossomed a NE PAC ridge on the 24th.  Now, check this out, what happens in the NE PAC???  Right after the GOM Tropical System???   A monster NE PAC ridge forms and a nasty looking Aleutian Low!  Wow, if your not a believer of this great long range tool I'm not sure how close this can come to illustrate its strength.

 

gfs-ens_mslpaNorm_namer_47.png

 

 

BTW, remember how dry the models were Week 2....???  I said it would turn wet across the MW/GL's and presto..."ring of fire" baby....

Did the GEFS take the lead again advertising Tropical Trouble down in the Gulf??? I believe so. Why you ask?? I use the LRC's cycle #1 during the summer season bc they tend to behave similarly as the jet relaxes quite a bit during this season and back in October the jet is beginning to intensify. Anyway, back during Oct 22nd-25th, we had a GOMEX low that tracked up from the Gulf states, specifically on the 22nd/23rd. Today's 12z GEFS sure look identical and match up to the LRC's pattern down in the Gulf around the 12th/13th of the month. We won't have a GL bomb, but the system near the Gulf matches up quite well. It's going to be busy season in the Gulf states.

What happens after that is quite interesting and I think we will start seeing more amplifying troughs as the waters in the NE PAC have warmed up significantly last month as @OkWx showed in the Summer thread. Back on Oct 18th-23rd, the Polar Vortex retrograded west into Alaska and then ultimately blossomed a NE PAC ridge on the 24th. Now, check this out, what happens in the NE PAC??? Right after the GOM Tropical System??? A monster NE PAC ridge forms and a nasty looking Aleutian Low! Wow, if your not a believer of this great long range tool I'm not sure how close this can come to illustrate its strength.

BTW, remember how dry the models were Week 2....??? I said it would turn wet across the MW/GL's and presto..."ring of fire" baby....

Tom, that blocking HP up northwest will be the first dent in this summers armor. Pretty sure it has a 90 percent chance of verification. I didn't see that map before I wrote that.

What happens 2nd half of June will be telling on how these troughs behave for the rest of Summer. I do see a heat wave or two in July though. All good if you ask me as long as pattern remains active.

I do see a shot at one in July also, but I think it'll be the last one for the central CONUS. Next few heat domes will be west/ NW centered.

Good volcanic blast out of Central America a bit ago. Don't know about any future atmospheric implications but seems likely that there will be more blasts in various places as we go along with low solar.

That picture of my patio chairs tipped over was the extent of my damage. I was trying to be funny :P :P

NEJeremy: hope the damage was not too bad.

 

Jaster, lows next week in the 40s for MBY, if you can believe that. Quick warm-up though into the 80s returns and stays put.

It's sad to see another major volcanic eruption down in Guatemala...all these volcano's erupting over the tropics are starting to spew more ash where it may impact the global climate down the road.

Nice band of rain is moving through this morning and it is very surprising as I saw nothing forecasted last night. A nice and cool 62 degrees. Every rain we can get is welcomed and puts off irrigation for awhile longer and lets me keep the sprinklers turned off.

There are a few high lats at at risk of popping also. They are near Russia. Last major high latitude eruption was near Iceland in 2010.
