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

Latest first frost

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.

Latest RRWT suggests your time will be split. Cool shot to begin November with a warming trend afterward leading into mid month.

I'll take it laugh.gif at least starts my vacation off with high hopes. Once the rut kicks in temps won't matter much so I could deal with that scenario.


I miss the Polar Vortex laugh.gif

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.

So a severe thread turna into a heat wave thread and a dry spell thread turns into a severe thread.

Come on Mother Nature, you're getting us out of whack. Lets get some consistent weather K? laugh.gif


Getting into that 3-4" range now

Cliche, how much rain did cvg see in September. I kind of don't remember much rain lol. Maybe a few drops. I think the remnants of Irma was the only rain we saw. And that was mostly just miserable drizzle for 2 days. I think we saw a couple heavier showers for that. So maybe .30.

2.4"

I make a severe weather thread and a heat wave thread breaks out. laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

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

Wow, for those on Facebook go to the WPC's page and watch the GOES 16 video they have on there. 9-18 thru 9-22 in 1 hour intervals.

Amazing to watch it/her breathe and survive land encounters.
