Our first frost ended up being a hard freeze. Got down to 24 where I was hunting. Rather chilly especially when the wind kicked up a bit.

Ended up falling on the average date of the first frost here

Curious to hear JD's thoughts, or anyone well versed with the Typhoon Rule, on lower 48 implications. IE Severe weather/winter weather placements, timing etc.

I know its not exact, but finally something to look forward to. Really wish the current cold spell woupd have happened when I'm on vacation Nov. 3rd through the 12th.

I'd take a Nuri typed early snowfall. Had 3" day before Thanksgiving back in 2014.

That was the year we awaited the cycle repeat that never came. Think CV set the record for earliest discussion thread, a mere 3 weeks in advance laugh.gif

Just curious, anyone know the earliest recorded snowfall for Columbus, Dayton and Cincy?


All had traces in September. 1989 seemed to be the love for all but Columbus.


Measurable would be October for Cincy

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday night through Monday)
ISSUED AT 255 PM CDT Mon Oct 23 2017

Tuesday night, a pocket of -2 C 850 mb temperatures associated with
the trough will move across central IL, producing surface
temperatures approaching the freezing mark. Currently, it looks as
if temperatures will remain just above freezing, with relatively dry
and breezy conditions preventing frost toward Wednesday morning,
however this will need to be watched as conditions are precariously
close to the first freeze of the season



Then for Saturday

QUOTE
Good model agreement then presents itself for Friday into the
weekend as all models/ensembles carve out a deep trough roughly
centered over Illinois, with an average 850 mb temperature around -7
C Saturday. This will bring a strong chance for sub-freezing low
temperatures either Friday night, Saturday night, or both. For now,
kept temperatures just below freezing Friday night and Saturday
night although a harder freeze is possible Saturday night, depending
on exact timing of the system.

The Indians asked their Chief in autumn if the winter was going to be cold or not. Not really knowing an answer, the chief replies that the winter was going to be cold and that the members of the village were to collect wood to be prepared.

Being a good leader, he then went to the next phone booth and called the National Weather Service and asked, "Is this winter to be cold?"

The man on the phone responded, "This winter is going to be quite cold indeed."

So the Chief went back to speed up his people to collect even more wood to be prepared. A week later he called the National Weather Service again, "Is it going to be a very cold winter?"

"Yes", the man replied, "it's going to be a very cold winter."

So the Chief goes back to his people and orders them to go and find every scrap of wood they can find. Two weeks later he calls the National Weather Service again: "Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?"

"Absolutely," the man replies, "the Indians are collecting wood like crazy!"

Models continue to look good for overnight heavy rain across dry areas in the midwest. This is the most recent run of the HRRR giving Chicago a run toward 4"!

Hope you get it, know you have been wanting it.

Couple dry days and today has been really wet. Approaching 2" as of now and another potential band forming.

Crazy to see such a dry month of September, .01" total, erased in such a short span. Almost spring like outside truthfully.

Approaching 4.5" for the month thus far

I hope this wet pattern returns with some cold involved this winter.

After .01" for the entire month of September, we are approaching 4.5" so far in October.

Temps are horrible compared to average though. Not getting excited at all for the winter.

Almost ready to throw in the towel, writing is in the wall IMO

Lucky you (not the mowing part....also, the grass grew that fast...?).

Spoke to my grandmother in Kentucky, they've had over 7" of rain since last night thinks to the front and Nate.

MDW ended up with .76" of the entire period, about .5" yesterday specifically.

The best part was the rainbow and the sunset.

Not that fast, but it did start greening back up and will thicken back up over the next week. Haven't mowed in quite awhile since it was so dry and was turning dormant.

Tired of looking at the extended forecast and seeing lows in the 50's or 60's. Ready for the 30's and 40's.

Someone please tell me a cool shot will happen firat 2 weeks of November, namely the 3rd to 12th.

Yeah, started posting in this one and then seen OV was added to a NE thread. Figured I'd stick to the forum region rules, but not start a separate thread.

Hopefully we can get a Novemeber winter thread this year.

Coming up on that time of year where its more of a high wind threat and maybe a lucky squall for a select few.

Deer season starts here on Sunday and this weather is making it hard to be excited about it
