And there it goes:
This is why it's so hard to base a prediction off of the 5th day of a model run. Here we are 4 days out and just about all major models have now leaned toward the Euro's "out to sea" idea. Now this isn't set in stone, even though all guidance seems to point to this solution now. But the trend is for a more eastern track with each new model run we see.
What this would mean for us is a couple days of light to moderate rai...

This feels a little like deva vu, no matter how much major media tries to shy away from saying this looks so much like Sandy. No, I don't see a "superstorm" setup like Sandy had. But the track looks awful similar.
But the slingshot potential seems like it's there. If the trough that moved through our area last night digs far enough south, I think we could see this accelerate in to the NC coast sometime Saturday. Here is the latest GFS model supporting the...

This weekend has been the most amazing weather weekend for Fall lovers. We haven't gotten above 66°, we had our first morning in the 40's since June 1st, and humidity has been low.
A massive trough that reaches all the way to the Gulf Coast has overtaken the eastern US leaving cool, dry air. Look at the dewpoints by 8pm this evening:
Temps are a good 10-15° below normal for much of the east, and should stay like this for at least ...

It's been close to two months since my last post, and for good reason. Weather stopped doing stuff, in not so elegant terms. My last post was our last real threat of severe weather, and since then it's been a rather mild summer with little rain. August saw 2.56" of rain fall here in Canal Winchester, and no 90° days. In fact we had two straight days late in the month where we didn't get out of the 60's!!
And then Meteorological Fall happened.

It seems like lately we have just constantly dodged bullets, one storm system after another has missed hitting us big time here in Central Ohio. Just yesterday a large, long tracking derecho missed us just to the south as it tracked from Minnesota to the Appalachians. But today I think we may finally get hit.
The SPC just issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch that covers most of Ohio:
The important thing to note about this watch is it seems ...
