July 2022 Observations and Discussions

Recommended Posts

With July right on our door step I thought I would fire up a thread.  The heat looks to be on for the plains and the south with below normal temps across the Great Lakes.

The CPC sees it this way to start July.

Precip looks above average across the northern half of the sub, but relief for @Andieis a big question mark.

This mornings GFS shows this for precipitation for the first week of the month.

The 4th of July will be nice and hot for the plains and the south but the northern plains and Great Lakes could have issues with rain as we celebrate our Independence Day.  The year is half over lets hope the 2nd half of the year brings the weather your looking for.  Let's discuss.

Heading for 98 today. 
They’re calling it “seasonably hot”. 
I have other titles for it.  
Drought still keeps truckin’

Precip is just a dream.  💤

I have the 4th of July Fireworks and sparklers ready to go! I might videotape them.

 

The storm chances this 4th of July weekend may be a goner because 95L had a Center Reformation closer to Houston! :(

Starting on the 4th of July, a lot of us in the MW/GL's region are in the "Ring of Fire" zone.  The 0z Euro animation below is the quintessential placement of the Ridge that retrogrades west in time.  The pattern heading into the middle part of the month is looking quite interesting for the northern half the Sub.  Man, this is shaping up to be a fun pattern tracking multiple/daily MCS's or possible Derecho's.

Nice to see the Euro Weeklies continue to trend towards a dominant trough-like pattern for the eastern CONUS mid-late July.  Things are shaping up to be pretty good up this way and points east.

A new month and an entirely new pattern is shaping up for many on here...Holy WET!  #AgBelt #NWFlow...Cooler and Wet across the central AgBelt!

A brief look at June 2022. At Grand Rapids the June mean was 69.2 That was a departure of just +0.3 so the month was just about average. The High for the month was 95 on the 21st and the low was 45 on the 4th there were 3 days of 90 or better 10 days of 85 or better. The coolest high was 65 on the 8th While there were 2 nights when the low stayed above 70 most nights the lows were in the 50’s and there were a few lows in the 40’s. It was a sunny and dry month with 9 clear days and 19 partly cloudy days and only 2 cloudy days. There was just 1.42” of total rain fall. At Muskegon the mean there was 67.8 for a departure of just +0.4 that too is considered “average” they recorded 2.11” of rain fall. At Holland the mean there was 68.2 for a departure of jut +0.3 also considered “average” and they had 1.72” of rain fall. Over at Lansing they reported a mean of 71.0 for a departure of +3.0 for the largest departure from average not only in west Michigan but the largest departure by a good margin in the whole state of Michigan. Lansing only recorded 1.56” of rain fall.

Very briefly had a low of 70 here.. 75 right now and kind of a light soggy haze.
Not enough to obscure the view of town.

Still waiting to see what June's rainfall was in Ashland, but looks like 5.25" fell in May. I would estimate around half that fell (or less) in the last month. February is the wettest so far with 5.82".

For the first time in exactly a month I feel like I have a real chance at seeing some thunderstorms tonight and maybe through the weekend.  The FV3 and 3km Nam along with the GFS all show 1-3 inches of rain in mby.  Hopefully @OttumwaSnomowhas received some rain this morning, it also looks like a good chance of rain a week from today it's nice to see some chances showing up.

Literally One or two sprinkles this morning.  Been too busy to water.  Planning on underground sprinkling in the next year or two.  But my front lawn is toast.   Backyard ok because we water more.   It's dry.

SBCAPE pushing 3000J/kg at 11AM and convection already firing up on the ridges. Could be a sign this afternoon will overperform here, downstream from the terrain.

Or not..lol. We’ll see. It’s been a very inconsistent storm season thus far.

Well, my complaints  worked!! .60 this am. Most steady light to moderate,  some rumbles of thunder.  As is typical  here behind the sagging  front in the cold air there was good lift  along hwy 34. Some spots 2 inches. Some got missed. Nice start to July. Need way more.

Texas/Gulf Coast just blowing away records. Troughing confined to the NW US again, consistent with La Niña.

So, Ashland might have been average? I looked at last year and June 2021 was solidly cooler than this one. 

I guess those 75-79 degree days took down the mean a few notches.

Had some heat but it wasn’t very sustained. And humidity was low enough to drop temps decently at night relative to climo.

Getting very dry around here. Lots of misses recently by a county or so. Corn and soybeans look good as irrigation is in full swing. Yards that have sprinkler systems look good, but the rest are struggling. With the horrendous economy, I think people are trying to save money any way they can, and possibly not watering is one way. Our town has stopped watering at the parks and at other city properties. Times are rough for sure.

Lots of hefty storms around here today but all have missed me.

Constant thunder now with the cell to the west but it’s dying and won’t make it here. Might catch a few raindrops.

In the meantime, muggy after a midday high of 92°F (capped by convective cloud cover).

This kind of a ridge is one that can ignite some serious storms on its periphery.  I’m looking forward to the storm chances next week.

Yeah, seems you and @Timmy Supercell are well positioned for a long stretch of stormy weather in the ring of fire.

Michael Ventrice concurs.

Small t'storm came thru Ashland, started weak but by the time it went right over the river it started producing some CG's. Had a few close claps about 10 minutes ago. More cells from the west coming in. So flashing from two different areas right now.

This subject always  surprises me.  Here our town is 25k population  so lots of businesses  and  folks  well off, plenty that are economically  challenged  as well.  We basically  see ZERO WATERING.  Except  maybe new lawns that have been seeded.  We mow 170 customers  and one is a 90 acre govt contract.   1 restaurant did water before covid, no more. On avg our summers are green with a few weeks burned  up.  But some years like 2012, 2013, 2017 and probably  2022 lawns are burned to a crisp for  months!  Even crops despite  months of 1 inch or so and temps either side of 100f zero irritating.  Maybe 1% along some rivers. Why?  Whats the nations obsession  with watering? Or better  yet. WHY NO WATERING  AT ALL HERE? EVEN WELL TO DO NATIONAL  BUSINESSES?

July

Wow, time is sure flying by it just seems like yesterday it was the 1st day of the new year and now it is the start of July. At Grand Rapids July in most years is the warmest month of the year. That was not the case in 2009 when both June and August were warmer. In 1947, 1900, 1937 and 1959 August was warmer than July. In the case of 1947 August was much warmer that year July had a mean of just 69.1 but August had a mean of 77.1.

I had my hopes up for possible heavy rain next week, but models are trending north with the ring-of-fire action.  Monday had looked like a big day for Iowa, but now most models show MN/WI/MI.  Southern Iowa may get little or nothing all week.  I hope some of it can bleed down here.

The pleasant weather ends Sunday as dews surge into the 70s Monday and remain there all week.

We'll see if this is a trend or just a blip in the modeling.  My experience in these type of situations is for the storms to fire up farther south than what they are modeled to be.  Storms love to track south and closer to the higher temps/DP's.  On the positive side, it does appear that Fireworks displays on Monday may escape the storm threat  around here.

What a way to break a dry pattern, big boomers have rolled through here overnight and are continuing this morning.  A nice storm train through mby, so far 1.8 inches have fallen which makes this the wettest storm of the year for me and more still to come.

It's great to get some rain this morning but it will make for a hot and humid 4th of July and work week ahead.  Good news though is that the next hot stretch should be short lived as a storm and a strong cool front should be due in around Friday.

Mother Nature could be cruel at time, but she can also bring timely blessings!  Even through it’s on a major weekend, I’m sure many farmers are thrilled.  Those vacationing near the Ozarks may not be so happy 😔   Congrats on the score!
