Default Big system in the midwest

Leni is getting the hot dry winds on the coast, but here in middle America, we're getting seasonal thunderstorms...

Interesting radar map shows what appears to be two low preasure systems back to back in tandem.. Stong enough to be bring in snow on their backsides.. We've gotten 1.2 inches of rain so far with what looks to be much more comming.

Lots of watch boxes on the radar map as well as warnings. Hold on to your hat for the next few days...

Regards, Kirk

I think one of those systems is heading this way tomorrow. Calling for strong winds and heavy rain tomorrow.

We're getting beat up right now. It started about 10:45 pm. The weather radio was going off earlier for golf ball size hail, 60 mph winds and torrential rain and flooding in the counties east and west of us. Now it's our turn.

We'll see what happens and check for damage in the morning. Fingers crossed!!!!

I haven't checked but it seems to be heading to the north-east.

It got wild and wooly here but only for about 20 minutes and then it settled down to a steady rain. I can't see any serious damage but I haven't walked round yet. Lots of leaves and twigs laying on the ground though.

Stay safe when it gets to you. It was pretty interesting for those 20 minutes.

No winds today but a cold sleet rain all day kept me inside. Just a steady cold dreary day today.

That's how it's been here all winter. I can't get 3 good days in a row without rain. I need to spray the yard. I've done it 3 times this year already but every time it rains and washes it all away. At least the reservoirs are nearly all full.

It rained and blew like crazy here, all day yesterday and last night.
We lost power for 3 hours. It came back on just before 5am this morning.
Still pretty windy out there.

Things have finally quieted down around here.
It's supposed to drop down to the low 40s tonight, then have a week of beautiful weather.

Beautiful day but breezy. I got the yard sprayed ... again. Supposed to be really nice again tomorrow with rain rolling back in on Wednesday night. Still, that should be enough time for the herbicide to work. I hope. And then more rain from Wednesday through the week-end. You get tired of the wet stuff after a while.

Sunny, cool and windy here.

One of my friends told me he lost power due to high winds, he's a couple towns northeast of where I live.

Sprayed the yard yesterday afternoon and woke up this morning to the familiar pitter patter of rain drops on the roof. It was supposed to be sunny with a 0% chance of rain today but it showered on and off all day. The total amount wasn't that much but it was more than enough to wash all my herbicide off. I think that I'll send Channel 7 News a bill for 600 gallons of herbicide because that's what they've cost me so far this year. Strange that they have all that technology, Doppler radar, computer algorithms and I can do better by walking outside and looking UP. You just have to believe in yourself and trust your intuition.
