CHITOWN COOLDOWN! High of 68 today and low of 49! It feels like a Lake Michigan cool breeze all the way inland and across N. Illinois today.

This is an old photo but appropriate :)

I have a feeling this fishing trip is going to be on the chilly side.Canada has been cold and keeps coming down over the northern tier of states.
Everybody ready for fall,because it seems to be arriving early

Hi,Jus,
Off to Canada,huh. sounds like fun,hopefully it will be quiet weatherwise. Could you ask the Canadians to keep their cool weather up there for a few more weeks. Can't help but feel the summer slipping away all too quickly.
Enjoy,we are in for some very very heavy rains on Wednesday,then some fallish weather.

Hi gals...nice to see you! Love both the posts! And, thank you. Yes...we do have to get the vote out this Fall....and always. Great points and thanks for watching the vid!
Hope you are doing great GG! And BC!

We are off soon to our Canada trip. I did receive my passport (hint- don't hyphenate yer last name gals ;)

Ok, random and oh sooo don't have time to plan much...but THIS IS the Juslivn and Mr. Juslivin plan for tourism to DO Lakes around the general area of Ontario, Canada
...ok so go with it.so...Chicago to Windsor. Then overnighting at the Casino (cause we have a comped room--'All Praise Ceasar'--, lol) then on to Toronto...boring boring conference boring (for me, not for Mr. cause he does da engineering schtuff)... tour, tour TORONTO! Looks fun! Days go by...but we squeeze in a trip THEN!!! Follow the Lake Ontario N. shore to Presqu'ile Provincial Park, Brighton, ON, Canada!!! Looks amazing! fish, fish (from piers, which I am damn good at even though we own a boat, I prefer piers...go figure?) Then!!! back to Toronto for the closing ceremonies of the engineering stuff...then ON to Niagara Falls! Around the bend and Northern side (Canadian side, er duh) Erie FISHING!! and the camping at Long Point!!! Freakin cooooool. Then on to where the HWY 3 takes us til we make it back to around 75 south along the lake to toledo, then, depressing...across all land through Indiana to South Bend where we finally meet the water again maybe dunes...then the damn skyway. Then nort toward home...Sounds like a plan Oh...we'll stop at 'historical markers' along the way, fur sure Pics at 10! Yay!

So, back to the weather. In Northern Illinois today, it did NOT rain (much) here...it spit. Soooo looks like we shall need to water the garden tomorrow morning. This is water #3 all summer. We'll take it. We do have the cutest watermelons on the vine and many cantaloupe. :)

Night all ships! Stay safe in port or at Sea, or where ever you may be. Trains are going to bed here in Fox Lake, IL...and I truly want you all to pray for peace.

Hello from Tea Party Ground Zero. Gosh I am sooooo proud of my state sometimes. Perhaps we can help fight climate change by sending snarknados to the tea biscuits. It is only through getting people to see the joke that they will quit being it.

The other day about ten tea party folks were standing on an over pass crossing a busy freeway waving hand drawn signs with assault rifles and freedom on them. Huh? So I drove by with an open window and yelled "JUMP!"

I haven't popped out of the woodwork here since you were up to your kneecaps in snow, but I have to give you an attagirl for finding and posting the link in #49. That was an excellent lecture to the Party of Stupid senators by Senator Sheldon Whitehouse. Unfortunately, it won't make a difference because even the remaining moderate Republican senators are running scared from the tea party idiots and/or they are bought and paid for my big oil.

I would like to remind people that this is an election year, but since it is not a presidential election year, way too many moderate and liberal voters won't bother to vote this year. The tea party people, however, will vote. There is a serious risk of losing the U.S. Senate to climate change deniers and tea party whackos. Is that not reason enough to get out the vote this year? Or will too many of us sit complacently at home waiting for someone else to make a difference?

Thanks, Jus!

Looking at the QPF (which I do regularly) I never expected this much rain? Not sure what I missed, but then again, maybe stalling and training storms just dumped by surprise? Looks like this pattern will continue through tomorrow ? At least with chances still in the afternoon.

.DISCUSSION...
257 PM CDT

"...THE STORMS HAVE BEEN SLOW-MOVING JUST AS THEY HAVE BEEN IN RECENT
DAYS WITH LITTLE IN THE WAY OF STEERING FLOW AND WIND SHEAR. RADAR
TRENDS FROM WI AND INITIAL EARLY STORMS IN OUR CWA INDICATE VERY
PULSEY NATURE TO THE STORMS AND THAT WOULD BE EXPECTED INTO EVENING
WITH PRESENT MID 60S DEW POINTS AND 1000-1500 J/KG OF MLCAPE IN A
LOW WIND SHEAR ENVIRONMENT. STORMS SHOULD MAINLY TRIGGER OR
FESTER ON OUTFLOWS. HAVE SEEN SOME GUSTS OVER 30 KT
UPSTREAM...INCLUDING AT LA CROSSE AND MADISON. THOSE TYPE OF GUSTS
AND SMALL HAIL ARE POSSIBLE WITH ANY OF THE STRONGER
STORMS. HOWEVER THE DISJOINT OF HEATING OF THE DAY AND THE SHORT
WAVE...AT LEAST FOR OUR FORECAST AREA...MAY PRECLUDE ANY SUCH
STORMS. LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN WILL BE A GIVEN WITH SOME STORMS DUE TO
THEIR SLOW MOVING NATURE. IF ANY OF THESE WERE TO PASS OVER A
METRO AREA IN PARTICULAR...THERE COULD BE A BRIEF FLOODING
CONCERN.

OUTFLOWS WILL LEAD TO SOME QUICK TEMPERATURE DROPS THIS EVE. BECAUSE
OF THAT SOME TEMPERATURE/DEW POINT SPREADS MAY BE LOW GOING INTO THE
OVERNIGHT HOURS WHICH MAY PRESENT POSSIBLE PATCHY GROUND FOG
AGAIN. IN ADDITION...WEB CAMS AND REPORTS HAVE INDICATED HAZE IN
THE METRO AREA SO HAVE ADDED THAT INTO THE FORECAST THROUGH
TUESDAY MORNING.

TUESDAY...
THE LEFT EXIT REGION OF THE UPPER JET AND ASSOCIATED WAVE WILL
LIKELY STILL BE MOVING THROUGH THE FORECAST AREA EARLY IN THE
MORNING...AT THIS TIME FAVORED IN THE EASTERN FORECAST AREA. THERE
COULD BE SOME SHOWERS AND EVEN SOME STORMS WITH THIS. THE SURFACE
BOUNDARY LOOKS TO HAVE MOVED/EVOLVED INTO THE SOUTHERN FORECAST AREA
BY TUESDAY AFTERNOON WHERE DEW POINTS WILL AGAIN POOL IN THE MID
60S. INSTABILITY OF 1000 J/KG SHOULD BE ENOUGH TO PROMOTE ISOLATED
TO SCATTERED STORMS AGAIN IN THE AFTERNOON AS A SURFACE HIGH
BUILDS FROM THE NORTH AGAINST THE BOUNDARY...AIDED PARTLY BY A
PUSH OFF THE LAKE. AGAIN STORMS SHOULD BE OF A PULSEY NATURE.
SLIGHTLY COOLER HIGH TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED ESPECIALLY NORTH
AND NEAR THE LAKE..."

Hi Wab, up here the corn seems just as good, I think. We've been lucky with corn, now I'll wait to see how the cantaloupe and watermelon do. It's actually been pretty sunny and 'hot' in the sun. Cool mornings, nice cool evenings. I remember a few summers with cool spells, and this is pretty typical and a better Summer than those threatening humid, volatile, tornado, drought ones.

Ylee, it was an okay weekend. Didn't stop working. This...is now officially a time management problem.

Still no takers on the fun I had laughing centered around the link in post 49? I was joking, but the link .speech was pretty good actually and suppose worth mentioning again.

Ok, how's Bertha? I go now.

Average corn yield around me is between 175 and 190 bushel an acre on a typical year .. according what county you are looking at and the area within that county .. there are reports that yields may reach close to 300 bushel in some areas which would be a huge bumper crop for farmers and will help feed the world with increased stock piles world wide !!

Wow, I should have played the submarine diving signal this morning, lol. We went from incredibly hot and humid to cool and and clear last night very quickly. We did not get any storms or rain here with the front and I forgot to water the garden today. I did the flowers though. This is the first time I've had to water since they were seeds. That's pretty darn wet until now.

It was truly colder by the Lake today as I was out in Waukegan showing homes and it dropped by about 15 degrees from farther west. It was also very, very windy.

Any friends on FB need to just follow me there because it's still just soooo busy. There's some cute kitteh photos there on my page, and I found a baby bunny in a window well today whom i set free, lol! All in a day's work :)

Hope tomorrow is as sweet as it was today here in Chicagoland. No I do not ever, ever see any violence of the areas on the news here...we just are so far removed from all that stuff, even though we are less than 45 miles away. Seriously, that stuff is going on in an area of the city I have never even been to. It's like a foreign land...but distance can be that way It's all relative. There's probably people there who don't even know the Chain of Lakes is so close :/ It's amazing.

Ok ramble scramble...take care all ships at sea or in port, or where ever you may be. Trains are going to bed.

Hi GG, yes stay-cation. :) As a matter of fact, I'd really like some stormy days to just catch up staying home and inside (and catch up on invests and WU!! I see headlines only and apparently there's something to watch, hmmm?? I better be careful what I wish for, eh??? Hope you are well!

Ylee...lol right! A tesla...
How bout a Hyundai ;) Elantra for work. It's a little bigger engine than the other coupe and may handle a bit better if I get caught in the snow. I'll take the Honda if I know it is going to be bad. Otherwise, it is a sporty car w/decent gas mileage and fits my signs and stuff. So far, it has 40 miles on it already and I <3 it!

And, now back to the weather....
Looks like we get back in the mix tomorrow:

Hi Oz, I could not believe how many parks and recreation places I hadn't been to within 2 hours! I suppose my area is 'blessed' lol...not sure, but we found so much we'd never seen before and grew up around here 50 years! Kind of saddened by that. But, I suppose we've been raising kids and working. Which is why we wandered only 2 hours radious. Soooo happy to find our style and pace only thus far away. We're not making any rash decisions, but South Bay YC seems to be our favorite :) along Lake Michigan not far.

Drizzle drizzle foil, 59 degrees, and shizzle, shivvvverrrrr :) drizzle... Night all ships.

Walk throughs at 8 am were brrrrrrr! Closings went well today ;)

Weather feels like a cool Lake Michigan day. I happen to love this cooldown. However, enough bunk with this polar vortex nonsense huh? Sheesh. We used to have great cool nights, and mornings and mild days back when we never needed the A/C more than a couple times a year back in the day ;)

Okay...gotta run. 2 families with new homes today. I'm thrilled for them :) Ta ta for now.

Well, on another note: We had just the best time today! We went for an adventure and were only less than an hour away! Wow, it was all free...if anyone says this country is so bad...they just really need to get out...probably less than an hour away, there are county parks, forest preserves, town festivals...just sooo much out there within minutes.

We took today and wanted to go to see if there were marinas with camp grounds within 2 hours. As much as we love Door County, it is four hours away. So, we went wandering along the Lakefront closer to home in search. We found an awesome lighthouse we had never been to, only 40 minutes into our trip. (I'll post pics to go on WU in the morning. A completely awesome fog bank rolled in while we were at the lighthouse near Racine.) Racine was nice and they've done a lot with their waterfront and harbourwalk :) But, we continued up the Lakefront farther north through Racine County and into Milwaukee County. Just followed county park, after county park...FREE launches, FREE beaches, beautifully kept docks, some yacht clubs...etc...

The best thing we found in our wanderings just could not be duplicated, ever. As we strolled through a County Park in Cudahay, with an awesome beach, golf course, and pier, a man came strolling up the sand bank, between the tall sea-grass.
He had a cigar in his mouth, and a huge, beautiful kite. At first I thought he had grandchildren close in tow which he may be going to entertain-- but no. He continued walking up the slight rise in the beach, alone. He carried an intricate, large, oak, wooden spool of kite string. He rolled out a bit of string, took a few steps to run to get the brilliant kite to launch, and it began. All with a cigar in his mouth. ;) It was as if I were in a carnival, a one man show in a brilliant random lakeside summer foggy day backdrop... Just Wunderful! Enjoy life and get out there! It's probably happening for free somewhere close just near you ;)

Wab, you have a long night ahead :/ not sure if we'll pop back into the mix, but seems to be dying down here now. Really didn't get that bad right here in Northern McHenry Co. (I was traveling today visiting marinas along lake michigan in southern wisconsin today, so not sure how the rains were here) hope they weren't too bad by you.

just now, next to the lake shore by winthrop harbor/kenosha, this radar above popped rotation where I was running around the lake today ;)
does not surprise me.

Hi wab...
We are still just missing here at the house but so much rain has flooded out other suburbs south mostly. We're coping with it up north pretty well (so far). It's just a matter of time. Other suburbs south got hit hardest.

Radar now...let's hold our breath on this. I'll check yours momentarily. Stay safe.

Half price pizza and 2 dollah summer shanty! Can't beat dinner for 17.00 in the heartland :)
Ahhh, the weather --it was good while it lasted! It began to get quite humid and rained (spit) on and off all day today. Now, it seems we are humid and overcast and I can't see much trouble looming, but suppose out West there is...Yewts in OKC are having their second reception party in Piedmont...hope they are having a blast!

For tomorrow --We go back into a stormy pattern and I won't mention the ridiculousness over the bottoms out temps next week --- uh--- who knew??? Crazy! Also, I wanted to come and post immediately after the 6.6 earthquake off Japan...but wasn't able. I Sent Prayers up, right away.

Here's the day 2 (tomorrow) I had heard morning storms may be severe but looks like evening pops additional storms, too.



SPC AC 111726

DAY 2 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
1226 PM CDT FRI JUL 11 2014

VALID 121200Z - 131200Z

...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS FROM ERN NEB TO SRN WI AND A
PORTION OF THE SRN GREAT LAKES...

...SUMMARY...
STRONG TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ARE FORECAST TO DEVELOP FROM PORTIONS
OF THE CENTRAL PLAINS TO SOUTHERN WISCONSIN AND A PORTION OF THE
SOUTHERN GREAT LAKES ON SATURDAY. MORE SCATTERED STRONG TO SEVERE
STORMS MAY ALSO DEVELOP FROM THE NORTHERN ROCKIES TO THE CENTRAL
HIGH PLAINS.

...SYNOPSIS...
STRONG UPPER RIDGE CENTERED OVER THE SRN HIGH PLAINS TODAY WILL
SHIFT WWD INTO THE SWRN STATES AND GREAT BASIN ON SATURDAY. THIS
WILL OCCUR AS A SHORTWAVE TROUGH...CURRENTLY APPROACHING NRN
ALBERTA/SASKATCHEWAN FROM THE NORTHWEST TERRITORIES...DIGS SEWD
THROUGH THE WRN TO SRN PERIPHERIES OF A CLOSED LOW CENTERED OVER NRN
MANITOBA. ALTHOUGH THERE WILL BE WEAK HEIGHT FALLS WITH THE
CANADIAN SYSTEM DURING THE FIRST-HALF OF DAY 2...A SHORTWAVE TROUGH
/CURRENTLY LOCATED OVER UT/...IS EXPECTED TO TRACK EWD FROM SD
ACROSS THE SLIGHT RISK AREA SATURDAY AFTERNOON AIDING IN TSTM
DEVELOPMENT.

...ERN NEB/IA/FAR NRN MO TO SRN WI AND SRN GREAT LAKES REGION...
A WEAK FRONTAL ZONE STRETCHING FROM SRN NEB THROUGH IA TO SRN WI IS
EXPECTED TO BE MODULATED SOME BY ONGOING TSTMS AT THE START OF DAY 2
WITH THE SRN PERIPHERY OF THIS ACTIVITY BEING A DIFFERENTIAL HEATING
BOUNDARY INTO SATURDAY AFTERNOON. MEANWHILE...A COLD FRONT
STRETCHING FROM NRN WI THROUGH CENTRAL MN TO SRN SD AT 12Z SATURDAY
IS EXPECTED TO ADVANCE S/SEWD AND MERGE/OVERTAKE THE WEAKER FRONTAL
ZONE. THE COLD FRONT SHOULD EXTEND FROM SWRN ONTARIO THROUGH NRN
IND/IL/MO TO SRN KS AND THE TX PANHANDLE BY 12Z SUNDAY. THESE
BOUNDARIES WILL BE THE FOCUS FOR TSTM DEVELOPMENT ON DAY 2.

VERY RICH MOISTURE WILL RESIDE INVOF THESE BOUNDARIES WITH PW VALUES
OF 1.75-2 INCHES. SURFACE HEATING...EXPECTED TO BE STRONGEST SOUTH
OF THE WEAK FRONT/DIFFERENTIAL HEATING BOUNDARY...COMBINED WITH THE
MOIST AIR MASS WILL RESULT IN MODERATE-STRONG INSTABILITY /2500-3500
J PER KG/. FORCING FOR ASCENT ATTENDANT TO THE UT SHORTWAVE TROUGH
AND WAA WITHIN THE NOSE OF A CENTRAL PLAINS LLJ EXTENDING INTO THE
SLIGHT RISK AREA WILL SUPPORT TSTM DEVELOPMENT INTO SATURDAY
AFTERNOON/EVENING. EFFECTIVE BULK SHEAR OF 35-55 KT...GIVEN
STRENGTHENING WLY MIDLEVEL WINDS ATTENDANT TO THE UT TROUGH AND
AMPLIFYING CANADIAN TROUGH...WILL SUPPORT BOTH BOWING LINE SEGMENTS
AND SUPERCELLS. ALL SEVERE HAZARDS ARE POSSIBLE...WITH DAMAGING
WINDS BECOMING A GREATER THREAT SATURDAY NIGHT WITH ANY UPSCALE
GROWTH INTO AN MCS. SOME OF THESE STORMS MAY PERSIST EAST INTO
LOWER MI AND PARTS OF NORTHWEST OH LATE INTO SATURDAY NIGHT...GIVEN
THE INCREASE IN FORCING AND ASCENT AS THE CANADIAN UPPER TROUGH
UNDERGOES STRONGER AMPLIFICATION.

...NERN ND/FAR NWRN MN...
TSTMS SHOULD DEVELOP AND/OR MOVE SSEWD ALONG A COLD FRONT ATTENDANT
TO THE CANADIAN SHORTWAVE TROUGH AS THIS SYSTEM MOVES INTO NERN
ND/NWRN MN SATURDAY EVENING. ALTHOUGH DEEP LAYER SHEAR WILL BE
SUFFICIENT FOR STORM ORGANIZATION...WEAKER INSTABILITY SHOULD LIMIT
THE COVERAGE OF THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT.

...NORTHERN ROCKIES TO CENTRAL HIGH PLAINS...
STORMS WILL LIKELY DEVELOP OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN AND SPREAD EAST
INTO THE CENTRAL HIGH PLAINS ALONG AND NORTH OF THE WEAK BOUNDARY
FROM KS TO NEB. VERTICAL SHEAR AND FORCING WILL BE SOMEWHAT WEAKER
OVER THESE AREAS. HOWEVER...STEEP LAPSE RATES AND MODERATE
INSTABILITY WILL SUPPORT A CHANCE FOR ISOLATED STRONG WIND GUSTS AND
HAIL THROUGH EARLY SAT EVENING.
