What's Going On With The Weather?

Wed Oct 04, 2006 5:51 am

Something is wrong. It is October 3rd, and it's 87 degrees outside, in MINNESOTA, The nation's Icebox.

We also have a tornado watch in effect. Anybody else experiencing weird weather?

It is actually perfectly normal to have weird weather every once in a while - as long as it doesn't start being weird into the same direction for an excessively long time and in a large area.

We've recently had a tornado in eastern Germany; That is rather rare over here, but it happens...

Summer always fights with Autum. We had that "nice" weather in Seattle last week. We are now cooling down. Just a matter of time when you get our weather. Next week or so it's going to warm back up. Robert NWDC10

It is the undisputable and proven phenomenon known as global warming, and it is all Bush's fault.

Been nice here in Southern Ontario all day, however, it's supposed to rain all day tomorrow, so I guess that's pretty much par for the course this time of year.

We had a wierd weekend here in SoCal: it was humid and overcast, yet relatively cool. It was like a monsoon without the heat. We usually don't get that kind of weather here in Orange County. That's usually something found more in the deserts and out in Arizona.

And today it was cool, windy, but sunny.


And oh yeah: It's all Bush's fault. Well, him and his cronies in Big Oil. We all know that consuming fossil fuels are evil (unless it's China or India).

Now if I could just get someone to explain to me why, when gas prices are low, the Dems are screaming about such "evils" and how we need to immediately cease-and-desist using petroleum products. And then, when prices get high, and people start taking public transportation, bicycles, and hybrids, those very same Democrats are "demanding action" to get gas prices back down again.

I dunno. I juz don't get it.

Mid 80s here in West Lafayette, IN. Supposed to stay warm for the better part of the week, which is nice after we cooled down to the 50s/60s last week. We had an awsome storm last night, long about 2am local time, which is always fun.

Here in the Baltimore area, we tend to get periods of several days in the 80s. On Wednesday the high is supposed to be at least 87 with our well known humidity. We've had days in late October with temps in the 80s. The heat and humidity are like a bunch of lawyers. They sometimes overstay their welcome. October and November lately have roller coaster weather in the East and the Mid West. Also this year we have another El Nino albeit a mini-me one. I always say here in Maryland we have four seasons they are:

  • Winter
  • Summer
  • Rainy Season
    and
  • Draught

Spring, Fall and seasonal weather are the anomalies in this area. Also, sustained periods of weather with a relative humidity lower than 50% are as rare as a compassionate honest Republican politician.  bouncy 
Couldn't resist that last one.
I do think global warming plays into all this but, I hope it isn't as bad as many say it is.

Still hot here in AZ. Autumn is here and it's still summer. CAN NOT wait for low 90s and upper 80s.

I think we need a winter home...in the winter.

Quoting KaiGywer (Thread starter):

I've seen two rotating wall clouds this evening, but no funnel clouds or tornadoes. Sirens have gone off four times so. The National Weather Service-Chanhassen has paged me ten times so far.

I have a weather program a lot like the TV stations use. I see three more storms developing south of Prior Lake, near Farmington, and near Hastings. They're strengthening, merging, and moving ENE at 30 mph. In other words...toward me.

We had 4 inch hail three miles north of Baldwin.

Doesn't surprise me. I was watching the radar and saw some pretty dark red move into Wisconsin just east of the cities.
