Another swing and a miss forecast last night. Severe Thunderstorm Watch issued with a high probability of rain, wind, and hail. Not one drop. It is really hard to miss on a forecast this badly. 

You may have another chance tonight with the upgrade to a b enhanced risk near your place.

06z GFS was showing a similar pattern that Phil was discussing setting up around mid-month with a fairly large ridge setting up over the center/SE CONUS leading to some awfully warm temperatures for many of us. 

After the chillier than normal period leading up to this, might be nice to have some more summer-like temperatures set in for a bit.

We will need all we can get this week, as we still are in drought. The upcoming pattern later in June looks like a massive ridge, which might spell a hot and dry pattern. That would be a disaster scenario. We just can’t afford to miss when predictions are 80% or higher.

Yeah MJO thru p8/1/2 under in situ low AAM/-ENSO background state is one of the strongest warm signals possible in mid/late June. Reminds me of 2012 a bit.

Duration is debatable, but tropical forcing seems to get stuck in that p1/p2 sector on the EPS, so could last a few weeks at least.

Friday nite was definitely a chilly one. Lows dipped down to 44F here in Macomb. Even upper 40s in Metro Detroit. No records were broken though.

Getting rocked in Central Nebraska. No hail here, though many reports NW of me. 

So it actually does rain there? :lol:

We are getting a nice, gentle soaker tonight.  A couple of the little, bubbly, heavier showers have produced some thunder, so I have officially received my first thunderstorm since, I think, mid April.

Among the more Seattle-like days we've had since we've moved here with cloudy skies all day accompanied by the occasional drizzle/sprinkle and only topping out at 67. 

12z Euro only got up to the mid 70s for FSD over the next 10 days with continued troughiness. Meanwhile the 18z GFS was a little more transient with the central/SE CONUS ridge in the LR. 

Here's the 12z Euro showing a decent amount of precip over the next 10 days for 75% of the CONUS. Poor four corners/SW area doesn't look to be improving with their drought, unfortunately.

I'm catching the northern edge of a storm complex.  Rainfall amounts have been light around a quarter of an inch.  Heavier rains to my south where they have had a lot of rain. In the last week.

I'm thrilled to see you got nailed last night...your patience was reward kindly from nature! Look for more rounds this week as a "Ring of Fire" pattern settles in along with the NW Flow.  I hope to cash in one of these days on a good storm.

 

Meanwhile, the GFS/GGEM were showing the blazing Heat pushing N & E but the blocking is saying "nasso fast"...I will say, that I'll welcome more days in the 80's and a more seasonal pattern next week.  Hope it happens b/c after this chilly week around here my body will be yearning for warmer days.

I received a real nice 1.48" overnight and this morning.  Many locations around Cedar Rapids got at least that much.

I took a drive out in the country this morning after last night’s storms. I finished with 1.25” at my house on the NE side of town. 3 miles north had 2.0” and 6 miles north had 3.0”. There is standing water in fields at that location. Multiple chances this week should be good for most, but a few places in our county of Phelps are water logged. Wouldn’t have typed that one month ago.

The JMA suggests the MJO stalls in Phase 1...I believe it, it has been the most consistent and one of the best LR models wrt to the MJO...

JMAN_phase_51m_small.gif

 

Here is the TEMP composite for June...I'd be tickled with excitement if TX ends up cooler than what the modeling is showing.  In fact, the CFSv2 is showing the Monsoon firing up in W TX and 4 corners later next week.  Beautiful.

Let's fire up the Monsoon this year Mother Nature...keep the goodness coming...my gut feeling is we'll be seeing some tremendous Haboob's this year out in W TX and the SW.  A banner Monsoon season in the works.  Last year was great for AZ, in fact, our town of Fountain Hills recorded a little over 12" of rain!  Let the good times...roll???

Yesterdays official H/L at Grand Rapids was 75/59.Just 13% of sunshine was reported.  At the airport only 0.01" of rain fall was reported. The overnight low so far both at GRR and here at my house was 60 and that is the current temperature here as well. At the airport 0.05" of rain fell and here in my yard only 0.04" fell. For today the average H/L is 77/56. The record high of 94 was set in 2011 and the record low of 38 was set in 1958. Last year the H/L was 80/68.

This is unusual for early June.  I’m hoping it gets this over with itself and we stay in the 90’s but I AM an optimist!  
Yes!  We’re all upset with this.  Lifelong natives are like, “What the hell !!!???”

It's been pretty wet over the last 12+ hours. Airport has picked up around 2/3rds inch of rainfall since 9pm last night, and squeezed out a brief thunder out of it. Just stopped raining and overcast now. 70 degrees. 

I was able to see lightning last night but wasn't nearly as frequent as one a couple weeks ago.

Put a section below my thunders on the signature that concerns severe weather, watches and warnings. Pretty low on everything there at the moment but I will add something to that as more events unfold. 

Interestingly my county has been in 2 Tornado Watches but 0 Severe T'storm Watches or Warnings. It sucks to be between 2 NWS offices. There have been several Tornado/Severe Warned storms in Jackson's CWA, but very close to none of that in Charleston's CWA.. (They issue forecasts/alerts for Boyd).

This morning's Euro has 100º into southeast Iowa for a few days next week.  Of course, it's bone dry, too.  Every surge of warmth this spring has come with a capped atmosphere and no rain, even with the frontal passage.

I sure am glad we just got a 1.50" soaker.

Sad to hear it but not surprised he's been taking alot of time off.  I'm going to miss hearing "It's Friday night in the big town."

I might be thinking of someone else in the KC area, but didn’t Gary have cancer years ago?  @Clintoni thought you might know the answer. 

Yes he did and as far as I know he is cancer free.  I hope it hasn't came back.

Yes he will be missed. He said he’s been cancer free since 2000. I guess he is going to focus and take his LRC tool on a global scale which is why is he leaving the station.
 

Why not if it’s going to make him more money!
