Satellite Images


Visible satellite imagery indicated no clouds were in the Lower Great Lakes.

Water Vapor satellite imagery indicated there were moderate concentrations of water vapor in the Northern areas of the US.

Very intense moisture concentrations were in the South Texas areas and Northeast Mexico, which will be transferring to the Lower Great Lakes area over Independence day.


Special Weather Briefing

At 8:00pm CDT, Infrared Satellite Imagery indicated Hurricane Alex, Category 2, may have made landfall in Northeast Mexico.

This is unconfirmed, but the Infrared satellite is giving hints that within the next hours, Alex will make landfall if not already.


Short Term Forecast

In the next few days in the Lower Great Lakes, it will be nice and cool, eventually rising to the high 70's.


The satellite imageries will have their own named post called 'Satellite Images'.

Weather Briefing

Water Vapor imagery indicates moisture is slowly on the increase from yesterday. Intense moisture is down south associated with Hurricane Alex that will eventually make its way up here.

Visible Satellite Imagery indicates there are little to no clouds in the Chicago area.

Infrared Satellite Imagery indicates there is no precipitation across the Lower Great Lakes.


Because of the downsizing of this blog's coverage, Special Weather Watches, Warnings, and Advisories are officially cancelled.

They are replaced by Weather Briefings.

La Nina Watch issued by NOAA; Re-instated by The Weather Centre

A La Nina watch was issued by NOAA this year.

The Weather Centre has now issued its own La Nina Watch.
Reason: Out of four sectors in the El Nino/La Nina affecting area, three of those sectors are showing that El Nino has dissipated, while the 4th secotr displays that El Nino has recently dissipated.

Models show that the warmer waters of El Nino in the Pacific are cooling down.

This watch will last through Mid 2011.

Redone Blog.

This blog has been redone to fit the needs of the current area.

At this time, all national forecasts will no longer apply to forecasts.

This blog will now be covering the Lower Great Lakes for easier blogging.

It is possible that a new weather blog may be started to cover the country.
At this time, that is unlikely.
