Fall/Winter 2022

It's time, already(?)

Yesterday, last full day of summer, temps in mid 80s. This morning woke up to low 50s.

Coldest morning in a while—it's fallen to 50.8°F here at my PWS this morning. Keep in mind I'm right at a river, so temps aren't reflective of places further inland (e.g. less radiational cooling, other places in ENC have fallen well into the 40s). Quite the change with the end of summery temps

The fall colors should also start showing if we can get some clear, cloudless days in the northeast.

Premature postage. Today's image for the Northeast showing the color change:

My nephew in Vermont sent me some incredible fall drone pics from today.
That's the one thing I miss about living up north.

This is an interesting time being so close to the big water.  From now until the lake freezes, I will be about 5-9 degrees warmer than just a few miles inland, the waters hold a lot of heat.  Expect to have peak color within the week.  I hike with the dogs at a rec area south of me, they call it a mountain (not) but the elevation does facilitate faster color changes.  We hike in the morning when the sun is just coming up, really pretty and peaceful.  Have to say Fall is my favorite time of year, next is winter until about middle of January, the it – well it is cold.  Will try to get some Fall pics and post.

We haven't seen any of this yet but it has been very windy and cold all day in the Chicago area.
Comment from the local NWS in Chicago (Romeoville office):

Some of these have produced brief
"snow globe" behavior with ~1 SM visibility underneath them,
including even in the far western forecast area (near Rock Falls
and Rochelle).

MTF


Much too early for this kind of stuff!

Our summer is essentially over.
First CF of the season. Low 40's and mid 70's.
Sad to see summer go. Now it's Chamber of Commerce weather for 6 months.
Boring. :sad:

Hoping here for the first good rain of autumn to put a dent in the drought.  Late Sunday night into Tuesday has chances of it bringing over an inch of rain.  It's needed to discourage the brush fires.  An example of what they leave behind is pictured near Stillwater.  Maybe it explains why I had a power outage Friday morning for a about an hour.

Very nice cold core low. Should be an interesting week working its way down the coast.

The Buoy that had been installed off the coast of downtown Chicago has been removed yesterday. It posted 30 second videos every daytime hour during this past summer. I have enjoyed seeing the different conditions on the lake over the summer, including seeing fireworks and some really large waves. I wasn't sure how long they were going to keep it out there but we have been having such mild weather they must have decided to wait. Much colder weather is moving in tonite.

Just some rambling thoughts on diurnal temperature ranges.

These 50 degree plus diurnal temperature ranges here sure raise hell with CWOP. At my location, which is rural, prairie, in a shallow bowl, both spring and fall morning temperatures can be 50+ degrees lower than afternoon temperatures. I am not saying this is an every day occurrence, but this fall's weather pattern has been conducive to it. This morning, for example, low was 10 and it is currently (2:25 p.m.) 62. Yesterday was similar. I have double checked my VP2 accuracy using a mercury thermometer.

Wondered who else has experienced this kind of "extreme" 24 hr range in a normal day? You get "flagged" by either CWOP or MesoWest?

I know the relative scarcity of reporting stations in this area increases the odds that my station will be flagged for suspicious data. Not much I can do about that.

We occasionally get the 50-degree swing days but the more common is 40°-42° here in northern Nebraska. It's so different from the Arizona high (4,300') desert location I moved from where 20° to 25° was the common value. You would think the Arizona dry air would have bigger swings but nope nothing like the plains. Part of it is the frequency of air mass changes across the plains vs Arizona where it's much more stable.  Western Nebraska with lower dew point temps has larger swings than eastern so it varies even on the plains.

Top swings for me would be about 30 to 35 degrees.
Flanked by 2 oceans on either side they moderate the air. But every now and then when the polar jet swings far south we'll join in the fun.
