Fall-Winter 2020-2021
« on: September 04, 2020, 11:36:05 PM »
With Oklahoma City TV weathermen and women sensationalizing lows in the mid 40s next week, it's time to start the Fall-Winter 2020-21 forum.  It may even snow in the Oklahoma panhandle with record lows elsewhere in Oklahoma.

We’ll have a taste of fall here this coming week with lows in the 30s and frost forecast in northern Minnesota.

It is fall already - this is the first taste of the really cold weather to come. Looking at the NOAA long range forecasts, it will be getting cooler by the week.

Incredible satellite image of the West Coast today. It is hard to believe the extent of these fires.

JerryG had the tropical storm come in last night.  Looks like power went out about the time winds picked up and heavy rain was occurring here was the last data reported at 2 am.  Sent an email and no response so power likely still out this morning.

During Tuesday morning, much of the eastern half of Oklahoma benefitted well from the outer band of Tropical Storm Beta with a bunch of rain amounts going over 1 inch.  From being near the west end of it, I only got .36".   But the opposite side of town the westside was yet closer to the very fringe line with one location only getting .06".  Interesting how that goes.  Very nice near normal sunny early fall weather coming for the next 10 days.

Quite a dramatic change in those photos.

Around here, first frosts have occurred but the killing frost is supposed to be coming up in a few days.

We are supposed to get temps in the upper 20s overnite in the Chicago area, not hard freeze yet. I still have to decide whether to pull the tomatoes this afternoon or not. Cool and rainy weather coming up for the next week. Probably not worth trying to keep them going.  Overall it wasn't a great year for them, although the ones we did get were very good. The carrots did OK but they took a long time to get going. The pepper plants we bought turned out to be jalapenos, what a surprise, the neighbor really enjoyed them. Those two plants did better than anything else we planted this year.

That article and those maps are depressing. From Kansas and Nebraska through the SW and W US are already dry, and this forecast looks to continue that trend.

I know here in the Plains we have been caught in what I best can describe as a rut. Not even a hint of moisture.

Comment from the more knowledgeable regarding the current "pattern" over the country as a whole and the West in particular? Would be interesting to hear from you.

Yikes, parts of Minn are looking at 3 to 5 inches of snow today.
NWS report from Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN:

Issued at 400 AM CDT Tue Oct 20 2020

A snowfall of 1 inch or greater in the Twin Cities typically
doesn`t occur for another month (this would be only the 10th time
since the late 1800`s that it`s happened in the Twin Cities before
October 21st). And, if the MSP airport measures more than 3.0
inches today, the daily record dating back to October 1916 will be
shattered...

Should start here anytime.

One of the earliest large snows on record. So much for global warming.  (insert emoji here)

Des Moines had 7 in places yesterday.

I did not get my Christmas lights up, or my rain gauge heater in.  Hopefully it will warm up enough to get both done.

Not really weather related but last week I was in Cleveland to visit my dad.
Have not seen fall colors in over 30 years.
Holy Crap :shock:
Man I forgot how beautiful it was. It wasn't quite peaking yet, probably this week but man, just awesome.
OK, back to weather. :-)

Funny you say that, but my one brother and I are now long since "westerners" but grew up in PA and OH (as we've chatted about) and every year we'd try to fly back east to visit my mom and other brother specifically at this time to hopefully catch the fall colors. Haven't done it since we lost my mom, that was last "century", so not as long as you, but been about 23 years for me. Always a good time and definitely missed.  :sad:

Don't like the weather? Wait a minute.

Yesterday at 1:00 am the Chicago area was at 44° F. Today at 6:30 pm we are at 43° F. Big deal? In between we went up to 78° F and received 3.83" rain. Forecast for overnite is 34° F.

At least it wasn't the 7" of snow that my sister in Minnesota got.

Snow on the ground in N. Dakota and Minnesota today. Fargo is the dark area in the center of the image.
