The calendar says we've had autumn for a few day now, but Mother Nature says "NO!", I'm keeping summer for a few more days.  Today is the 5th day over 90 degrees, here in Lake Geneva.  We may have one more, tomorrow, too.  This makes up for the cool August we've had.  Worry not, fall fans!  We'll be back to your normal weather by Wednesday.

OK.  It's not really weather week.  Welcome to Wisconsin's Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness Week.  This is a week to remind people to be aware of tornadoes and severe weather.  Obvious, huh  In conjunction with the State of Wisconsin and the National Weather Service, there will be two tornado drills on Thursday.  Area schools, businesses and alerting services will participate.  Thursday afternoon (April 20) at 1pm, there w...

Yesterday morning, I was awakened about 4am, by the sound of hail hitting my bedroom window.  It made me think of Severe Weather & Tornado Awareness week.  Here in Wisconsin that week is Monday, April 17 through Friday, April 21, 2017, just after Easter.  In fact Walworth County's storm spotter class is Thursday night, April 13, 2017 from 6:30-8:30pm, at the Lake Geneva Police station.  The free training is open to the public,...

Spring is certainly here.  Spring is also the usual start of the stormy season around here.  Believe it, or not, storms can help radio reception.  Especially on FM.  I've noticed that sometimes, when storms are nearby, they affect FM radio reception.  Since storms introduce very little static to FM, they can sometimes even improve reception of some stations that may normally be hard to hear.  The opposite may also happen.  So,...

Here we are.  It's the second day of Daylight Saving Time, & it was still hard to get up this morning.  Why do we go through all the issues related to changing our clocks, twice a year. As the saying goes:  The world may never know.  The reasons for time shifting have become a bit hazy, over the years.  Some say it was for the farmers, others claim it was to save energy.  I've even read that Ben Franklin started it to save on...

Today is the beginning of National Weather Podcast Month.  Podcasts have been around for several years, now.  Those devoted to weather, are not new, either.  The first (& my personal favorite)  is WeatherBrains.  Meteorologist James Spann & the gang started this show, more than a decade ago.  I also listen to Weather Junkies & The Capital Weather Gang.  This one, however, is focussed on weather happening in...

It may not say it on your calendar, or...if your a member of the weather community...it does.  Today, March 1st, is the beginning of meteorological spring.  Just as the calendar has four seasons, so do meteorologists.  Spring begins on March 1st, summer:  June 1, Fall:  September 1st & winter starts on the 1st of December.  So...Happy Spring!

Today, we learned of the passing of actor Bill Paxton.  Among his many movie credits, the weather community will remember him as Bill Hardon in the movie Twister.  He passed away today, at the age of 61, from complications during surgery.  We'll miss The Extreme.

Here, near the Cheddar Curtain, we've had a beautifully warm stretch of weather, since Thursday.  Today, that trend continues.  Some people may see 70.  The normal high is 34.

Well.  All good things must come to an end.  This will be true of our February warmth, as well.  

Many times, when an unusually warm period closes, it's end is marked by severe storms or a snowstorm.  That won't be the case, at least no...
