Fall Incoming; Ending the "Drought"

By: Buckey2745, 2:00 PM GMT on September 30, 2014

We've gone a remarkable 18 days with no significant weather to report. As TheHermit43130 said...

Quoting 1. TheHermit43130:

I'll bet it's hard to write a weather blog these days, seeing as how we live in an area that doesn't get weather anymore. :)

Yes. It's very hard.

So imagine how exciting it is to see this on the radar this morning!

If it doesn't look like much, it's because it isn't. A weak...

14 Days Without a Drop

By: Buckey2745, 7:20 PM GMT on September 25, 2014

Central Ohio is in the midst of one of our longest dry stretches in quite a while. We're going on almost 14 days without a drop of rain. Even last weekend's cold front that blew through didn't seem to tip the bucket in my rain gauge.

Analysis shows less than 0.01" of rain for the past 14 days for a giant area in the middle of Ohio:

The good news during this stretch is we haven't baked. If we had 14 days without rain in the middle of June...

The Cool Down

The cold front blew in last week and we still haven't recovered here in Central Ohio. In fact today broke a streak of highs in the 60's as we hit a balmy 72.8°. A stretch like this is fairly uncommon for the middle of September, and we haven't seen three consecutive highs below 70° since the middle of May!

Yesterday morning's low of 42.2° was the coldest we've been since May 19th when we hit 41.9°!

It's been a refreshing stretch...

LiveBlog: Strong Fall Start

By: Buckey2745, 6:42 PM GMT on September 10, 2014

Well I had this big writeup about today's weather scenario, and the WeatherUnderground's website decided to delete everything I was working on. So... it looks like I'm going to have to narrow this down because that was A LOT to type.

Here are the two maps I wanted to point out. The first showing the three rounds of storms the HRRR predicts, even though the first round will be a dud.

What I also typed before was the fact we're ...

Strong Fall Start - 1 Day Out

By: Buckey2745, 6:07 PM GMT on September 09, 2014

One day closer and still not much different of a forecast for tomorrow night's first introduction to Fall. What I will change a little is the chance of a tornado. Even though the front will roll through in darkness with little to no instability, the vorticity is off the charts with the latest models. A squall line will develop and as we've seen many times, there's a chance of a brief spin-up tornado. Look at the latest NAM:

Something to note is that...
