Title: Fall/Winter 2021-2022
Post by: Bunty on September 27, 2021, 02:08:27 PM
Time to start another time of year thread:

It's like there has been a drought explosion in Oklahoma.  Only .01" of rain here so far in September.  A rainy period of 1" to 2" may come later this week.

Had an early front come through here that shut off the tap. Cooled things down a tad too. Rainy season is coming to an end. For the most part it's now chamber of commerce weather till spring. In other words, boring weather. Still have the possibility of some tropical storms from the southern gulf and Cab though.

Oklahoma City tied its record high with 94 for Friday 10/8/21. So maybe we're still not done with having 90s for highs here for 2021.  This Sunday thru Wednesday is supposed to be a welcomed rainy spell that might be able to put a dent in the drought.

Tuesday night severe thunderstorms and Thursday morning first frost. Low of 31 this morning. Pretty close to average first frost dates for this area.

During a walk around Boomer Lake on Wednesday evening, I saw some simultaneous weather phenomena that I don't recall seeing before.  First I saw a large rainbow with virga.  The bottom of it didn't go to the ground.  There was no rain.  Then I turned around and saw a more spectacular than usual sunset.  Both pictured below.   Similar sights were also going on in the Oklahoma City area. So Oklahoma City TV meteorologist, Emily Sutton, received numerous sunset and rainbow photos on her Facebook page.

In central Oklahoma, as fall begins to transition to winter, the weather has finally been acting up, since it's the secondary storm season.  The Oklahoma City metro has been pounded by several storms in the past week with a few tornadoes, fortunately not strong enough to produce much severe damage.  No wonder. Tornados were rated EF0 and EF1.  Altogether in Oklahoma for the past week, there has been 23 tornadoes, more than throughout last spring.  Fortunately, Stillwater had no severe storms, while getting much needed rain with no flash flooding. .74" came from early Friday morning's mild storm.  The rest of October looks like it will be more fall like with no early freezes, so far in store.  No more highs clear into the lower 90s.

Can't decide if winter is starting or fall is going to stick around. 31° yesterday morning, 61° this morning. Warm front pushed up overnite and a cold front is coming from the west today. We will be back in the 30s tonite after some spotty showers.

We did get down to 31.5° this morning and received .26" of much needed rain. Average annual rain in Chicago is just over 40". We have only gotten 25.61" so far this year in my micro climate.

The National Weather Service Twin Cities issued this Area Weather Discussion at noon today, warning of a derecho-type storm that will move through parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin this evening and adding that area meteorologists will likely long remember this event in their careers:

KEY MESSAGES...

1. An outbreak of severe thunderstorms is likely early this evening.
A line of thunderstorms will race northeast across southern and
eastern Minnesota into Wisconsin between 5 PM and 9 PM. Widespread
wind damage from gusts possibly exceeding 80 mph will accompany this
serial derecho. Tornadoes are also possible, a couple of which could
be strong/intense.

2. A potentially historic high wind event tonight with gusts of 60
to 65 mph across the entire region.

3. Flash freeze across western Minnesota as temperatures plummet
from the 40s to the teens overnight. Some snow accumulation also
expected.

The storm system impacting the region today and tonight is one a
meteorologist will remember throughout their career. The highly
dynamic and very unusual storm system will bring almost every
weather type we experience around here within the next 24 hours.
Most weather elements are record breaking for this time of year,
including temperatures, moisture, wind, and various severe weather
parameters.

 We have had blowing dust, thunderstorm, mud rain, and a high of 72 today. The storms we got are just the beginning for folks east of us. It looks cloudy out, but it is pure dust. Nasty weather and I fear for some potentially dangerous.

Barometer 29.20" and falling.

Yessir. Pretty close to us.
Max gusts have been 70 here in the past hour. Visibility has improved. It was down to 200 yards for a couple hours in blowing dust.
Worse I have seen it here. I am betting that others may have it a lot worse before it is all over.

Holy crap! I don't believe I've ever seen storm motion this fast!

At 418 PM CST, a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado
was located over Glenwood, or 21 miles southeast of Omaha, moving
northeast at 85 mph.

WOW, what crazy weather to have a short while before Christmas.  Things here didn't get that dramatic Wednesday.  High was 78 with a wind gust up to 36 mph. It broke the old March high.  Barometer got down to 29.55.  Stillwater was near the weak tail end of the line of storms that stretched from north central Oklahoma to Minnesota early Wed. night.  Only got a tame .22" out of it.  It was much needed.  The AQI spiked to 108 after the rain, which is unusual.

Oklahoma panhandle and northern Texas panhandle got a lot of wind and fire.

Oklahoma City has gotten into the 70s for the 7th time this December for the most times ever for that month.  At this time last year there was snow on the ground.

We had a couple of hours of blizzard and near-zero visibility when it came through here in Valentine Nebraska. Short video of what it looked like out the front picture window.  Hard to measure inches .20" in moisture in the 8" SRG it was 21-24° air temperature with 61 mph wind gusts. I ended up going with 11:1 ratio and reported 2.2" of new snow to Cocorahs.

had some snow yesterday early morning.  Then a glaze of ice. Anything without snow on it got iced over.

Now, it is snowing again, so any glaze is covered by snow. Have to be careful where you walk. Then it will get real cold this week.  Oh fun.

Still waiting for the real winter to start in the Chicago area. Got about 1.5" of slush yesterday that melted today. It looks like Saturday will be the big arrival. Six to eight inches possible thru Sunday followed by single digit temps on Sunday nite. Interesting observation from a local TV meteorologist:

This has been a crazy few days.  75F on Saturday, down into the 20s Monday morning.  53F right now and 29F in the morning.  36F tomorrow and 12F Friday morning.  It will start to snow tomorrow morning.  Of course, here in the south, we're not prepared for a lot of snow on the roads.  And I expect power outages from fallen trees or limbs.

I haven't heard the term "Polar Vortex" this season.  Have they quit using it?  This sure seems like one.

From the NWS:
...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 10 AM EST /9 AM CST/
THURSDAY TO 1 AM EST /MIDNIGHT CST/ FRIDAY...
* WHAT...Snow expected. Total snow accumulations of up to two
  inches.
* WHERE...Southern valley of East Tennessee and southwest North
  Carolina.

3:57 PM EST Tuesday 01 February 2022
Winter storm watch in effect for:

Strathroy - Komoka - Western Middlesex County
Winter storm possible for Wednesday through Thursday night.

Hazards:
Snow, heavy at times.
Total snowfall accumulations of 20 to 30 cm expected by Thursday night.
Winds gusting 50 to 60 km/h.
Reduced visibilities due to heavy snow and local blowing snow.

Timing:
Wednesday morning through Thursday night.

Discussion:
Rain showers tonight will transition to snow by Wednesday afternoon. Snow is expected to taper by Friday.

Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
As Ocala says, a walk in the park for those of us who can remember the 70s and 80s...

Enjoy,

When I lived in northern Ohio on the shore of Lake Erie I remember the winters of 76-77 and 77-78 where at the time (still may be for all I know), that one was the coldest and the other the snowiest on record. I just don't remember which was which. Spent many a single digit morning waiting for the school bus.  :-({|=

My dew point has crashed a whopping 40F from 45F a few hours ago to now at 5F. Skies are clear and if the wind dies down tonight, which is likely, it's gonna get really cold here. Mid 20's I think will be in order for most of the metro and teens for the outliers. That's pretty cold for here.

This comment from the NWS (Chicago) this morning:

"Even for far northern areas up into southern
Wisconsin, seeing AWOS sites at 4 mile visibility with no snow
reported, which is due to the tiny nature of the "Arctic dust"
type snowflakes."

That's a new one on me. Don't need a snow blower, just a Swiffer.

If it's on a tripod as it use to be, you can bet stronger wind will shimmy the bucket causing just that. That's just one reason why I ditched my VP2 bucket on my ISS which is also on a tripod.

  When spring arrives here, if anyone asks me how the winter was, I’ll probably say, “Long and hard.”  We’ve had a lot of subzero temperatures, wind, and frequent, though modest, snowfalls.
  But, at least so far, it’s been a “moderate” winter, according to the Climate Journal published online by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The DNR has a point system index measuring snowfalls and temperatures at the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport to rate the severity of winters in this area.  This year our winter has racked up 71 points. The “moderate winter” rating runs from 55 to 158 points, so we are in the low end.  The most severe winter was 1984, with 236 points, while the mildest was in 1931 with 12 points.
  Well, maybe it’s my age, but I still think it’s been an awfully long, cold winter, and I’m ready for spring.

I think it is an age thing. Even though I'm in Florida these winters get tougher all the time. Our recent cold spat had my fingers numb. Never used to be like that. Body just doesn't want to work when it's in the 20's and 30's. A couple 80 degree days this week had the body feeling better. :-) I have no idea how I lived up north for 25 years.

A dramatic look at the contrast in temperatures as one of the winter's coldest cold fronts makes its way across Oklahoma during the early morning hours of Feb. 22 from the mid-teens in the panhandle to as much as well into the 60's.  The stormiest weather is expected in the southern and southeastern parts of Oklahoma.   This front is expected to have a low of 9 here, so well above -10 from the lowest registered at my weather station in mid Feb. 2021.  That unusually long cold spell was quite phenomenal.   It will be interesting to see if these unusually strong cold fronts will continue to blast through later in March.

It sleeted, rather than snowed here.  Interesting how it easily accumulated on the streets and sidewalks but not so much on the dead grass.  From clear skies, it may get down to 8 tonight, tied with the coldest for January here.  It's supposed to get up to the 60's and 70's next week.
