  1. The SD black hills are awesome, I gotta come in the winter some time! The drive here was interesting as well since I had never been west of Kearney. The sand hills is probably the most desolate region of the country east of the Rockies. It was quite the peaceful drive (except at one point I was about to pee my pants and had to go on the side of the road )
  2. Summers haven't gotten too bad in recent years and the polar vortex has been a frequent visitor. I think the only months that have gotten significantly warmer in the north central U.S. are December plus probably the Sept/Oct period. Meanwhile, the southern U.S. definitely doesn't get as cold as it used to. The cold wave in February was the lowest temps dropped in Memphis in 32 years (down to 1 compared to -4 in 1989). Before the 90s, flirting with zero mark or lower a few times a decade was basically expected.
  3. At LNK here's some of the new averages(1981-2010 in parentheses): Avg temp: 52.3 (51.5) Precip: 29.34" (28.95") Snowfall: 26.0" (25.9") The shift from snow in Nov/March to Jan/Feb is pretty apparent, as well as wetter winters and drier summers. This seems right, except temps are about 0.5-0.6 warmer than they should be. Just using the NWS NOWData tool you can see the discrepancy. I was thinking maybe they calculate normals some other way, but doing the same thing for 1981-2010 you get the exact same numbers as the official averages.
  4. Well the new 1991-2020 averages have been released, not too surprising that much of the country is warmer. But something isn't right for Lincoln, I'll include in next post https://www.ncei.noaa.gov/products/us-climate-normals
  5. Uh oh, I'm pretty sure the last map I saw had LNK over 1"
  6. Another hot, windy day on the way to the low 90s. I just can't believe that I'm still in the same location I was in February
  7. Looks like the 4th year in a row with April rainfall struggling. 2017 was the last time April had above avg rainfall, also every year since then March has been wetter than April...pretty weird.
  8. GFS sure is much more generous with rainfall in the next 7 days. 2" in Lincoln compared to barely 0.5" on the euro.
  9. It was starting to getting pretty hot again like yesterday but luckily the cold front pushed through. North winds and it's about 20-25 degrees cooler than this time yesterday.
  10. I can believe that Lincoln averages an earlier date than KC, but not by almost a month. But behind MSP? No way lol
  11. Classic lol. Today is only the 4th day of the month with a high in the 70s but we've had no issue being stuck in the upper 40s/50s or surging into the 80s/low 90s.
  12. Kind of unrelated, but I just moved from North Lincoln to southeast. Not like 70th and Old Cheney southeast but like 91st and Pine Lake southeast LOL. Kind of tempted to bring my PWS from my parents place up here, especially since I'm so far from the airport now. That is if it still even functions properly.
  13. Snow has tapered off considerably now, just a very light dusting. 0.1" would be a generous number. It was quite the sight to see considering how late in the season it is and not a flake has fallen in nearly 2 months.
  14. It’s trying (but struggling) to stick to grassy surfaces
  15. Visibility is probably down to like a quarter mile right now. Dang we needed this band later, tonight will be mostly to the south.
