Stationary front up thru CLE

Just ideal for SMI

The amount of cutters we have seen just through the middle part of Oct is great to see....add to the fact that nearly every system has been energizing and deepening while tracking through our region.  At face value, early in the game, the central CONUS is yet again in the prime spot for active wx.  The big question remains, if the cold air will be there for the Winter...something tells me your move into SE MI will have been timely.  Check out this surface map below...eye candy storm track... @Andie @OKwx2k4 will be experiencing the "Blue Norther" in this type of pattern in about a month...

This has been the warmest start to any Oct 1-15th period, in fact, it's been record setting.  Extremely warm overnight lows coupled with cloudy skies that helped put a "blanket" on temps did the trick.

 

 

The GL's region holds the trophy...now, I'm going to remember this map come Dec to see how it ends up correlating to warm Octobers during double dip La Nina's.  The bonus has been the wetter than normal pattern and obviously extended summer that extended the growing season.  Stock up!

Ma Nature definitely brought reality here today imby. Autumn is finally in the air. Temps have not budge at all from the mid to upper 50s and lows are heading down to near 40F or so. I would not be surprised to see some upper 30s tanite in some spots (especially in the suburbs) and especially tomorrow nite. Its been a mostly cloudy day w occasional sunshine from time to time, along w breezy conditions.

After a bad day of watching my Tigers get smashed I decided to enjoy some beautiful October weather. To Mizzou, Iowa, and Nebraska here's to a better Saturday.

Enjoy Clinton!  You earned these autumn days after a hot and humid summer.  Love the country scenery…#bonfireseason

Any opinions on winter?   
I heard a report that Texas gas supply may be problematic this winter.   Add the worry over electric and I’m like what the hell…..?

I highly dought TX as a whole will see any weather conditions comparable this winter to what happened last year. I don't know the exact stats, but that's about a once in 25 year event most likely. Also, there's absolutely no excuse for what happened in Texas in Feb. If you don't have the capacity to keep citizens warm when it's cold, then you're failing. Many other places in the South which record cold temperatures did not completely fall apart. Of course everything was still shut down for a week, but it's nothing like what went down in Texas.

I hope you’re right.   
I can’t say they’ve solve this massive problem and now they’re worried about natural gas supply. Yeah, Texas.  We’re sitting on a state filled with oil and natural gas.  I we don’t have aquifers under our feet we have oil and gas!   
Part of the problem is the exodus into the state. People running from failing states.  But we’re not everyone’s solution.  Construction and congestion are off the hook here and I’m concerned they can’t meet demand if we have a strong cold front or freezing rain.  I have a gas fireplace if an electric failure.  
But no gas?  We freeze again.

The overnight low here at my house was 39.9 and of course that is the coldest low so far this fall season. The official overnight low so far at GRR is 44. This latest date for that 44 low the old record was on October 8th 2016 and while not official the low here at my house of 39.9 (40) is the 2nd latest for that to happen but will update that when GRR officially reaches 40. At this time it is clear here and 41.
