Here we are at the halfway point of October, a month I consider to be the ultimate transition month, and we've seen it all when it comes to our temperatures. From highs in the 80's to lows in the 30's and everything in between, October has delivered.
This upcoming week will probably be the highest you'll ever see the rollercoaster go for an October swing. As of now, forecasts have highs in the mid to upper 80's on Monday and Tuesday. That's pretty rare f...

-Storms developed around our area last night with a cold front that dropped through Central Ohio. Most storms pulsed and died out quickly, but a couple cells developed and then redeveloped and trained over the same areas for hours. Yesterday evening a Flood Emergency was issued for Ashville, an area I used to live. In fact, radar estimated almost 5" of rain fell in a couple parts of the county:
My house is probably 10 miles from where the heaviest r...

I'm back from a short summer hiatus from weather blogging. Why did I take a break? Well, it wasn't really a planned silence, but more dictated from the lack of interesting weather. If you've followed this blog for a while you've noticed my posting becomes kind of infrequent during the summer because, well frankly, Ohio weather is boring during the summer. You've heard of fair weather fans in sports, so I guess I'm an anti-fair weather fan.
Now it's Septe...

Well, the well advertised derecho never really developed. As storms moved in after midnight, more convection fired in a line from Columbus back to Lima. I think this really took any wind power out of a long lived derecho. However, this wasn't a total bust. There was a ton of lightning, and plenty of rain. I got 2.10" here in Canal Winchester, with TheHermit reporting 2" in Lancaster.
These storms that developed trained for quite a while over an area from ...
