June Observations and Discussion

Cloudy and only a high of 74 in Lincoln today, it feels great outside. The 2.37" at LNK the past 2 days was much needed.

I got .60” tonight. I got around 1.20” Tuesday. The rest of the week I got almost nothing. Maybe a few hundredths more. So less than 2” for the week which is ok but a bit disappointing considering what models had been showing.

Looks like Bud’s turn and he deserves it. These progressive cells mostly just missed me. 0.05” in forenoon and 0.13” this evening. Radar estimates do show a narrow stripe of around 1” to the nw. Lawns are greening up again. Need to mow next week after a nice hiatus from that. The next few days probably won’t produce much.

The weather cooperated by midday just to the NW of Chicago metro where I attended the block party.  Thankfully, the main show ended up farther south just like the models were showing.  It was a lovely afternoon and early evening with a southerly breeze and temps in the low 80's.  I could see angry storm clouds to my south and the sun even poked out right around 6:00 ish allowing for a nice sunset.  Hope we get a break from the rain today and see more sun.  Still plenty of chances of rain this week, but what I'm really looking forward to is one of my fav holidays...4th of July!  #'Merica #1776

For the 2nd day in a row a new rain fall record was recorded at GRR  2.81" yesterday and 2.17" on Friday. The total for this rain event is now at 6.26" For the month of June at Grand Rapids the official rain fall amount is now at 8.40" That is good for the 2rd wettest June on record for Grand Rapids. At Lansing the total for June is now at 7.38" Kalamazoo 9.74" Holland 6.45" Muskegon 6.89" It was a another warm night here at my house the low was just 71 while the official low at the airport looks to have been 72. At this time it is cloudy and 72 here and the last reading at GRR was 73. One item of note  there has been almost NO thunder with the rain event the last 3 days.

Light to moderate rain has started falling here this morning. I am ready for a break in the rain but it looks like I'll have to wait until next weekend for that. Hoping for a good break in the rain today for a charity bike ride I'm riding in at least it won't be hot. My rainfall since Thursday currently sits at 5.8 in.

Texas is about to join the Midwest rain club.   
 

40% chance today but all next week chances rise to 80%+ with temps in the 80’s.   
I think this pattern is going to be our summer.  The yards love it but the trade off is the nightmare out west.  
we’re adapted to it. Not the Pacific.  They really need that rain.

We finally had a dry day yesterday and the sun was out pretty much throughout the afternoon.  A weak CF swept through dropping DP's into the low 60's, but I'll be honest, I didn't spend much time outdoors yesterday as it was a "lazy Sunday".  Meantime, another Flood Watch has been hoisted for the area as we are expecting more torrential downpours today & tomorrow.

Taking a look at the rainfall totals the last 3 days, there is an obvious "hole" in parts of S WI/N IL and into C IA.  The "haves" and "have not's" that usually happens in summer precip patterns, esp when we are dealing with convective set ups.  Sadly, the northern burbs of Chicago missed out on the heavier rains and only received 1-2" while everyone else south of there scored 3-6" with another 1-2" possible over the next 2 days.  The other big winners were our MI peeps and those in MO and S/SE IA.

There is a slight wind off the lake which has allowed temps to cool into the mid 60's this morning.  I'm glad the northern burbs are getting some rain this morning...

I don't know about ya'll but I'm soo looking forward to some cooler and drier weather.  The models continue to show a beautiful pattern for the Big holiday weekend.  Who's ready???  Ahhh, the good ol' Canadian HP will be our friend for much of the Sub...

The 0z Euro showing some delightful temps for the Fri-Sun period right over the same areas that have been getting hit by rain.  Those to the NW in the Upper MW nasso much...low/mid 70's for daytime highs???  Where do I sign...

The 4th of July will "fry" where the pattern has been dry....low 80's with comfy DP's is pretty much top notch wx for the middle of Summer.

Another FFW has been issued and I look to be the target of more excessive rainfall. I picked up .50 overnight with more on the way this morning. Can't wait for the front to push through Thursday morning until then 3-6 additional inches look possible.

Guess what??? There is a light rain shower ongoing at this time. So far just 0.02" has fallen. The overnight low here was 62 and the official low at GRR looks to have been 61. With an official rain fall total at Grand Rapids of 8.40" this is now the 2nd wettest June of record. The reported record of 13.22" in 1892 should be safe but that was a long time ago and one has to wonder about the record keeping. At this time it is 65 here with light rain falling.

It appears the main moisture plume will be located south and east of my area again early this week.  Hopefully, I can get lucky and catch a small cell or two.  Otherwise, the Euro has no rain for the next ten days.

A miracle from god occurred for my area of the county this early morning. A line of slow moving storms that we’re not predicted by NWS Hastings, imagine that, dumped 3:40” at my house. North of town about 8 miles, my friend only had 0.35”. The haves and have nots of summer rainfall.

Same with a lot of Neb, Minn, and the Dakotas.  The drought may really intensify in those areas going into July.

Funny. I was just thinking how we ended the season with a Storm Warning here and it may have been a preview of things to come. Hope you and others are enjoying the warm season. I start at my new firm in Detroit area right after Independence Day (..waves hi to Niko). After 19 years in Marshall we will be moving and beginning a new chapter. Take care my Wx friends!

A bit of an edit to my last post.  Rainfall rates are 3-5in per hour.  Right now storms are becoming more widespread and are very heavy.

* At 1118 AM CDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms producing
  heavy rain across the warned area. Between 1.5 and 2.5 inches of
  rain have fallen. The expected rainfall rate is 3 to 5 inches in 1
  hour. Additional rainfall amounts of 2 to 3 inches are possible in
  the warned area. Flash flooding is ongoing or expected to begin
  shortly.

I’m liking the weather the last couple of days with highs only around 80° with plenty of cloudiness making the high humidity bearable. 0.01” of rain today. Otherwise not much to report.

The stationary front responsible for producing the heavy rainfall has lifted further NW. It will be interesting to see if this opens the door to those further north who need some rain to get some today.

The euro was really wrong lately and was off for today as well if it wasn’t showing any rain.

With yesterdays 0.12" of rain that brings the total for this long event here at my house at 6.1" and I would say that for much of this area the drought is all but over. Officially at GRR they reported 0.08" of rain yesterday and now have a total of 8.48" for the month. The official amount for the year is now at 17.03" that is still a departure of -1.68" for the year to date. The mean temperature for June remains at 70.5 that is a departure of +1.9 so June 2021 will end up warmer that average. At this time it is cloudy and 72 here at my house.

#DroughtBuster...now the worry will be for the intensifying drought across the Plains/Upper MW and how much it will bleed into the North woods of MN.  I can see those areas continue to be dry and fry into July, at least for the 1st half of July before some interesting amplification of the North American 500mb transpire.  The majority of us have done well in the precip dept and will continue to do so.  So glad to have scored a lot of rain this past week and its nice to see everything green up.  Crop should grow rapidly during the sunnier days ahead.

The growing drought right now seems very similar to last Sept and Oct.  Maybe they can get some rain when the stormy pattern returns mid July.

2nd half of July I'm looking for a NW flow pattern aloft which could provide spotty relief those across the W/NW Sub Forum.  Until then, however, it'll get more active across the eastern ag belt post 4th of July.  BTW, I meant to ask you the other day, how is the lake level in the Ozarks?  My brother and his wife are heading down to Osage Beach the following weekend.  Just curious.

Lake of the Ozarks should be fine as it is a controlled level lake that only fluctuates by a few feet.  The flood control lakes will be very high.

Dry conditions are already here for northern MN.  Both my neighbor's and my drain fields are a rectangle oases of lush green grass surrounded by brown crispy grass.  

Other than a slight reprieve in mid April, the drought pattern has been here since last Aug/Sep.  Lightning started a wildfire in the state forest not to far from me a couple weeks ago, burned for a couple days.

Meant to say intensifying drought, but ya, it’s unfortunate what y’all up north are being dealt with by nature.

I forgot to put my rain gauge out the past few days. I am guessing I got somewhere between 2-3" of rain in the past few days. Most of that fell on Friday. Getting some more rain today as well. 

It's nice to have gotten this much rain to get rid of the drought we were in, but it's just amazing how we haven't had any severe weather here so far this summer. I haven't seen a wind gust higher than 35mph and only one shelf cloud that wasn't that impressive. I am hoping that July can deliver big time on strong thunderstorms.
