Spring/Summer 2022
« on: March 22, 2022, 12:54:11 AM »
Time to start another time of year weather thread:

For the Southern Plains, March 21 was great for raining much of the day on land in drought all winter long.  Much of Oklahoma got 1 to 2+ in. of rain.

After one of the driest November thru 20 March periods on record for many reporting stations in NWS Hastings, NE, a lot of ranchers and farmers are hoping the spring will bring change. My CoCoRaHS station reported 1.4" in the snow/rain we had Tuesday night,  but many places north in Nebraska had little. "Abnormally Dry" for my location as of 24 March.

A little bit of a u-turn this week. 74 earlier this week, some rain and it is now snowing and temps down to 30.

Tuesday
Showers, with thunderstorms also possible after 8am. High near 64. West wind 13 to 18 mph, with gusts as high as 28 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%.


That's a number not floated around here very often. I guess that means even I might see a 0.01". Maybe I'll get lucky and see a quarter, which is a whopping 50% of what I've gotten so far this year as is.  :-({|=

That Low is tracking right over us. Pressure is 29.15" now and still falling.  Max wind gust today 47 mph...so far.

On a more humorous note, the wind blew the David VP2 rain cone off (second time in last 4 months) and it was rolling around on the side of the driveway. The cat could not figure out what that dark shape was, but it was obviously up to no good and not to be trusted. His tail was huge and he was eye-balling that thing real good.

:eek: Jeez, when I used the VP2 tipper, removing the cone was like pulling teeth. I mean I really had to yank on it. Matter of fact, I think I broke one of the tabs off it was such a PITA.

I have triple checked it both times. All the tabs are in place and the slots they fit into seem fine. It is just possible this unit has gotten weak/loose/stretched?,  or was never as tight as it should have been. I don't know the answer.

First time it blew off was during the dust storm in December 2021, gusts near 70; today gusts 45+. All day events may have loosened the unit.

Perhaps you could fashion a shim(s) or such to squeeze between the the slot/tab to tighten things up. Shouldn't be too difficult I would think..

It would appear things are getting off to a pretty quick start this spring. Mighty big area of 'moderate', and already the second such of this very early season.

That was unusually low.  Tuesday night pressure got down to 29.31 with a 35 mph gust.  There was a severe storm watch out.  Storms formed in two lines, and I was in the gap between them, so only got .01 out of the front.  Most of Oklahoma City was left out, too.

We recently hit 40" for the water year outside of Portland. Too bad Central Oregon hasn't been able to get in on enough of the rain to clear their drought.

After an extremely cloudy, windy, cool, wet, and, for some areas of Minnesota, snowy April, the State Climatology Office summed it up this way:

But April's dreary weather is gone and. . .

Nice to see a sense of humor which has pretty much been canceled nowadays.

So in other words, you got as much springtime as I did...none.
