Fall/Winter 2021-2022
« 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.

I don't ever recall such a large swath of the country under a "high wind warning". Potent long wave.

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.

Check out the satellite photos for western KS if you are interested.

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.
