Just like yesterday, we have a new record (tied the old record set in 1895 of 92°F)

Little movement in the overall pattern for the next few days…Today’s record high is 92°F set way back in 1895. To give you an idea of how rare it is to reach 90 this late in September (after the 21st) its only happened TWO other times. Once in 1953 (95) and 1895 (92).  Historically, the chances are under 1%.

You may want to water your mums!  We’re in a dry stretch…next shot of rain comes at us Wednesday night.  So where do we fall at the rain gauge and are we in a drought?  Here’s the report for the Buckeye state.

At the rain gauge in Cleveland:
0.81″ so far this month, putting us at a 1.86″ deficit.
32.44″ so far in 2017, putting us at a 4.26″ surplus.

Temperatures this evening will be falling though the 70’s.  Heading to a football game?  Kickoff forecast is 82 degrees, mainly clear and muggy with a light northeasterly wind.  Hope your team wins! The waxing crescent moon is barely visible in the twilight colors, but we will see the moon grow and climb higher in the evening sky over the next several days:

Our spectacular summer-feel and sunshine continues this weekend.  Woollybear Sunday in Vermilion looks sunny and warm, so make sure those woollybear costumes are not too heavy and warm!  Hope to see you there!
