  1. I can’t remember the US ever being so drought free. Hopefully the forecasted precip for the PAC NW comes to fruition. Now if we can get rid of the humidity, deer flies and skeeters, things will really be looking up!!
  2. A whopper of a derecho hit NE OH on July 4th, 1969. An interesting part of this storm was that in addition to the 100+mph winds, there were incredible rains, up to 14” in 15 hours. And sadly, 41 deaths due to the wind and flooding. Just a few of the many links available on the storm. https://www.weather.gov/cle/event_1969_0704_fireworksDerecho_Flooding http://ohsweb.ohiohistory.org/swio/pages/content/1969_flood.htm https://stormtrack.org/community/threads/ohio-storm-of-july-4-1969-what-happened.1576/
  3. Yes, you are correct, and I see how one could have misunderstood the point I was trying to make. I meant that for as long as I can remember, the winter outlooks issued during the summer show above avg temps....just like the posted outlook.
  4. I see your point now but I don’t know enough about it to answer your question. Maybe someone else can chime in. I did find several references that mention the stratosphere as being the threshold. Finally, I googled the phase... “Particulates ejected to altitudes above 32,800 feet (10km) have a direct cooling effect on the planet.” and found it noted in numerous articles preceding this subject eruption. I also found a similar version which says... “Particulates ejected to altitudes above 32,800 feet (10km) or FL328 -and into the stratosphere- have a direct cooling effect on the planet.” Hopefully we’ll hear more about this volcano’s potential impact in the coming days/weeks.
  5. As we enter mid-meteorological summer, lest we forget that daylight is now waning as the slide begins to winter! On a bit more serious note, does anyone ever remember a long range (from this time of year) winter outlook from the CPC showing below average temps for a significant part of the country? Here’s DJF issued June 20th.
  6. Not sure if I’m following your question, but the website I linked provided general information on volcanoes and climate and was written subsequent to a different volcanic eruption. The link you found was specific to the Raikoke eruption. Here’s another pic.
  7. Here’s the best summary I could find. https://www.carbonbrief.org/what-do-volcanic-eruptions-mean-for-the-climate 1. It needs to reach the stratosphere.(The height of which varies based on latitude.) 2. It needs to eject a lot of sulfur dioxide. And the closer it is to the poles the more it can affect climate.

  9. Here’s some thoughts on what the SOI “forecasts” for early July from Scott Sabol who is out of CLE. http://sabolscience.blogspot.com/2019/06/long-range-forecast-ideas-first-half-of.html
  10. Three confirmed tornadoes in NE OH yesterday. All three were EF-1 with this one passing 1 mile north of our Father’s Day get together.
  11. Yes, very close to MBY, but I’m not home right now.
  12. FYI. Found this on Scott Sabol's twitter page.
