A Memorable Month So Far

What a crazy May it’s been!  Records have been falling left and right both in terms of temperatures and precipitation this month and our stormy pattern continues even as we wrap up May and move into June this weekend.  A large storm system to our west has been keeping things warmer, more humid, and rather […]

Records fall once again

This is a reminder that it is December, but other than the calendar and the Christmas music, there is very little to remind us of that.  December 3rd featured the 4th record high temperature that has fallen in the last three weeks or so.  What make this record more impressive in my opinion is the […]

A March To Remember

I think a lot of people will remember this March.  Who can forget the birds chirping, flowers and trees budding early, and of course golf courses opening up almost a month before normal in some cases.  In the middle of the month we had a stretch of days that would have made for good pool […]

We’ve talked at great length about the incredible warmth and number of records that have been shattered this month of March, highlighting of course the strong likelihood that this will prove to be the warmest March EVER in Rochester history.  We should also isolate the current warm spell of this amazing mild pattern to truly […]

Spring Arriving Early

We are continuing the trend from our extremely mild Winter into the second week of March.  Astronomical Spring arrives in in 10 days, but it will be feeling like spring, and late spring at that before it officially rolls on through.  The jet stream (the dividing line between relatively warm and cold air), like much […]

December 20th snowfall & records update

The latest snowfall totals we have that have been reported from the December 20th snow event are below. Additionally, some have seen some light icing through the overnight (Rochester: 0.10″ ice, Winona, 0.12″ ice), and freezing drizzle will remain a threat this morning, especially along the Mississippi River and east. Because of that, Winter Storm […]

A record-breaking storm? A comparison to the Nov. 10th 1998 storm

I’m more and more amazed looking over information and forecasts with this upcoming storm. The central pressure is forecasted – by several models – to rival that of a Category 3 hurricane!!! This will be a doozy of an event for us, and one that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Winds like this can do incredible […]

Near Record Humidity

Not only has this been a much warmer summer than last year, it’s also been much more humid.  In fact, since June 1st which is the beginning of meteorological summer, we’ve been experiencing near record humidity in Rochester.  One way of getting a good measure of the humidity in the air is by using the dew […]

Hot & humid lives on

May 23, 2010 0 Comments

There’s a very good chance Rochester will be setting a new record high on Monday (tomorrow – the old is 88° from 1912). I’m forecasting 92°, and with dew points near 70°, it’ll push the middle to upper 90s for heat indicies. Take it easy – it’s difficult to cool your body as easily in this […]
