Wild temperature changes

Post by bmw » Sun Sep 06, 2020 10:35 pm

This might be the steepest temperature drop I've ever seen. Some places in Nebraska will go from having been in the low 100s on Sunday to highs in the Upper 30s just 2 days later (and soon after back into the 90s).

On a side-note, it looks like Michigan will be quite chilly on Tuesday. Funny how the computer models have been showing this now for 4 or 5 days yet the local TV meteorologists have insisted until as recently as yesterday that our highs will be just fine in the mid 70s.

They were saying 86 for Wednesday as recent as yesterday. Thankfully, they changed it to 79. I have a doctor's appointment a long way from here and have my car a/c out and low heat tolerance.

But climate change doesn't exist, right? ;)

It is going to struggle to crack 70 anywhere in the state Wednesday. Tuesday will be 40s and 50s state-wide except for the extreme southern part of the state.

I was looking at Accuweather.com which is usually fairly accurate.

Michigan has nothing on Colorado.

Where I lived near Denver (alt 5900) was around 100 yesterday, calling for 90 today, and 6-10 inches of snow tomorrow.

From a heat index of 95 to a wind chill of 25 in just 14 hours - that's a drop in feels-like temp of 70 degrees:

Incredible. Incidentally the fastest temperature drop on record was in Spearfish, South Dakota in 1943:
Spearfish holds the world record for the fastest recorded temperature change. On January 22, 1943, at about 7:30 a.m. MST, the temperature in Spearfish was −4 °F (−20 °C). The Chinook wind picked up speed rapidly, and two minutes later (7:32 a.m.) the temperature was +45 °F (7 °C).
The fact that this is from a full blown cold front and not the odd event that is a Chinook wind is incredible.

The 24 hour temperature change record occurred in Loma, Montana in 1974:
The largest temperature change ever recorded within 24 hours took place in Loma, Montana. An extreme 103 F temperature range in less than a day occurred in January of 1974!
Amazing stuff.

Climate changes. Been happening for YEARS. Man has little to do with it. At one time, the entire state of Michigan was under ice. Emissions from automobiles didn't melt it.

Good answer.
