April 2020 Observations and Discussion


Recommended Posts

Wow, Just took a rain fall measurement and so far 1.93" of rain has fallen here overnight and so far this morning. And it has been a warm rain at that with a current temperature of 57 here. So that should speed up the leaf development over the next several days. And of course it will be grass cutting time big time.

Warm rain? Its 57F and average highs are in the mid to upper 60s. Highs today barely hitting 60F or maybe 61F (running BN temps). Not sure I get your warm rain statement!

It was 61 degrees in April and pouring last night.  Felt tropical to me.

Here are 2 videos I posted to Twitter from the blowing dust in Holdrege Nebraska at 4 pm today.

it was pretty crazy yesterday. I have a mowing service and was out in the country when that cold front came through. It was a sight to see; this is what happens when you combine all the farmers planting with the dry conditions. I really think this is a sign of what will be an active and crazy spring storm season IMO.

Well, tropical to me is being in the 70s this time of the year w rainfall. Anyway, that's my opinion.  Next! Move on!

Wow, nearly all the CAM's have over 2" of rain falling into NE IL...what a nice pivot...where was this in the Winter???  Looks like a complete washout back home and a big time soaking. This is quite the storm on radar and the winds accompanied on the backside look rather powerful.  On a side note, Lake Michigan water levels continue to rise and are even higher compared to last year.  How high will the lake levels go???  Pretty incredible run taking shape.

I have to wonder where you really live. A rain in Michigan with a temperature of 57 with rain in April is a WARM  rain. The average high for today at GR is 64. At this time it is still raining with a temperature of 57. And yes that is a warm rain in April.

Dont Keep Wondering, I am in Macomb County!

 

That is your opinion. I disagree because how can it be a WARM rain, if temps are running BELOW NORMAL today as we speak. Explain that! Truly, You have no idea what you are talking about. Right now my temp is 55F in MACOMB, MI w showers. Is that considered to be a warm rain? I just talked to a few friends of mine globally, since I have a little time today (right now as a matter of fact) in regards to this conversation that we are having just to get feedback and they ALL disagree at your remark (57F and feeling tropical in late April). Look, if it were December, January or February where average highs are in the low 30s ( very likely colder at your locale, perhaps 20s for normal highs I am assuming) and you were reporting 57F in the midst of Winter w rain, then YES, by all means, I will agree w you 1000% that this is a tropical rain falling. Listen, again, I have my opinion and you have yours. Now, I cant use my time w you on this all day as my time is very valuable, so looking forward to your answer on this. Again, its your conjecture on this, so don't worry on what I think about this issue. Its all good.

I STAND by my statement that in Michigan in April with a rain falling with a temperature of 57 is a warm rain. Most of the time in April with rain falling the temperature is much colder than 57. By the way the official high here in Grand Rapids yesterday was 71 and the overnight low was 57 with a DP of 55 during that (by your standards was a cold rain) At this time it is 63 here with a cold light rain falling. Don't worry I will explain the weather conditions the way I want to and I did say it felt tropical.

You should also know that the average low at this time is 42. And the low overnight was 57 with that rain falling just it was for April a warm rain.

PHX recorded a record low high the other day (30th) and we bottomed out at 75F.  The cloud cover from yesterday resulted in temps only topping out at 101F and we missed out on reaching the all-time high of 105F which was in the forecast. Next week features more HEAT and it looks like this pattern will last well into May.

Been a very cold at time year up there. "Warm rain" is a justified description in terms of the weather experienced up there largely since Oct 6th.

 

57 and rain at night here is still a little warm too right now.
