Snow on the Way?

After 3 days of rain, cold rain at that, it appears the moister will change over to Snow by Midnight.....

We are only forecast to receive an inch or two, with maybe as much as 3 or 4 inches north and west towards Fort Wayne, Indiana, some 60 miles from the Grand Lake Region.....but even that would be welcome respite from the miserable conditions of the past 3 days.  After some almost "Indian Summer" like weatther to begin the past weekend, it all fell apart by late Saturday night, and Sunday, Monday, and today, have seen constant rain, sometimes lite, sometimes, heavy, but mostly steady and moderate.   Temperatures have hovered in the 40s for the most we will see Snow and then some colder, bur dryer air arriving by tomorrow afternoon.

Today:  Rain, steady at times, High near 40
Tonight:  Rain, changing to Snow, low near 30, and inch of two possible
Tomorrow, Wednesday November 30th....Afternoon Clearing, highs in the upper 30s.

A Round of November Storms

After spending the weekend at the in-laws in southeast Wisconsin, we headed back yesterday morning, aware that rain was predicted along the Lincoln Highway, Route US 33, but unaware just how much and how strong the rare November rain/lighting/tornado event would the time we hit Warsaw, Indiana, some 100 west of the home port, the rain picked up and by the time we arrived in Fort Wayne, the cloud to ground lightning and heavy rains, combined with strong winds, made the trip "interesting"....

Several Tornado Warnings were out as we crossed into Ohio, now one step ahead of the front....the rain arrived shortly after we arrived home, but the major lighting was reduced to more summer like non-sever rained much of the evening and flood warnings were posted....however, nothing major in the Grand Lake region.

Today will be cloudy, but still mild for this time of  year...about 60, clearning tonight with a low near 40 and sunny but much cooler tomorrow and highs will remain in the low 40s.

Indian Summer{for another day}

The old legends of and about Indian Summer, say they happen each year sometimes after the first frost...usually in October, at least in this part of the country.  I'm not a climatologist, just a Biology major, so I can't say for sure....of course many climatologist believe in that fake science of man-made Global Warming....which of course is a complete fabrication, laced with political BS....but I guess I should save that rant for my other, main, blog, which often dwells into political controversies, and can be found at this link:

For today I will go out and enjoy a early November day with sunshine and temperatures reaching the mid 60s....not exactly summer like, but for sure it will be one of the last days this nice until March or perhaps even April....

The Forecast for Grand Lake and the Region looks like this:

Today Wednesday, November 2, 2011--Sunny skies, after a cool morning it will reach 65
Tonight Clear and seasonable temperatures, actually warming that average at 47
Tomorrow, a sunny start, but 60% chance of rain by late afternoon,, with a high of 56
