  1. I forgot about his low sea ice component. Here’s a 2018 article. https://www.wunderground.com/cat6/models-coming-agreement-widespread-effects-arctic-sea-ice-loss
  2. Active severe weather year in the CLE forecast area. From their Twitter page....
  3. Interesting in that it is contrary to what many believe is the case in regards to sea ice and cold air outbreaks. (I'll try and remember to post in WX University once that section of the board is up and running.) From... https://twitter.com/karin_vdwiel/status/1163758000181567493https://www.nature.com/articles/s41558-019-0551-4 https://www.nature.com/articles/s41558-019-0551-4 Abstract Observations show that reduced regional sea-ice cover is coincident with cold mid-latitude winters on interannual timescales. However, it remains unclear whether these observed links are causal, and model experiments suggest that they might not be. Here we apply two independent approaches to infer causality from observations and climate models and to reconcile these sources of data. Models capture the observed correlations between reduced sea ice and cold mid-latitude winters, but only when reduced sea ice coincides with anomalous heat transfer from the atmosphere to the ocean, implying that the atmosphere is driving the loss. Causal inference from the physics-based approach is corroborated by a lead–lag analysis, showing that circulation-driven temperature anomalies precede, but do not follow, reduced sea ice. Furthermore, no mid-latitude cooling is found in modelling experiments with imposed future sea-ice loss. Our results show robust support for anomalous atmospheric circulation simultaneously driving cold mid-latitude winters and mild Arctic conditions, and reduced sea ice having a minimal influence on severe mid-latitude winters.
  4. I can't answer your question, but to give readers some idea of the magnitude of the cold, here's the temp anomalies for 1950. BTW, Nov 1950 happens to be near & dear to snow lovers in the upper OV. I'm still waiting for the repeat of that storm.
  5. Interesting video and brief analysis of a “near miss”, or is it a “near hit”.... https://www.washingtonpost.com/weather/2019/08/16/lightning-missed-man-by-feet-it-was-all-caught-camera/
  6. It appears that the NWS is bringing back the LES Warnings!! I'm so glad this is happening as the LE events are a different animal as compared to synoptic events. https://www.erienewsnow.com/story/40908591/national-weather-service-to-bring-back-lake-effect-snow-warnings-this-winter https://www.weather.gov/media/notification/scn19-63hazsimp_lake_snowaaa.pdf

    (I have trouble finding these comments. ) Anyway, I was pulling invasive plants at a local nature preserve when I saw it. I was pretty surprised. Haven't seen one for years.
  8. Some details on the dryness across the corn belt in July. Graphics from Scott Sabol Twitter.
  9. Dry on the 10th will be good too! Speaking of dry, it’s amazing how fast things dried up in the last few weeks. Water-filled depressions since last Sept, which seemed to be a permanent part of the landscape, have finally disappeared.
  10. FYI. @Farmboy05 et al. I posted the site the @weather_boy2010 referenced, as well as another one I found regarding snowfall data, under "Annual Snowfall Amounts" in "Weather Q&A".
  11. One of the many articles on the "heat" of June 2019. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2019/07/18/global-warming-hottest-june-record-last-month/1767109001/ This note was especially interesting... "June 2019 also marked the 414th consecutive month that the planet's temperature was warmer-than-average, NOAA said."
  12. Just keep in mind that it's never good to be in the bullseye 6 months out! For kicks and giggles, does anyone keep track of these forecasts and compare them to what actually happens? (I think I might start doing so during these summer "doldrums".)
  13. Some storm damage north of Ravenna (SE of Cleveland) yesterday. (7-21-19).
