Signs in the Heavens!

This was just a weirdly cool weather map from today, Sept. 28.

Rain in almost every eastern state. Not all one storm pattern, but multiple storms scattered around like spilled popcorn.

    I think you are looking at a composite of weather radar coverage which isn’t continuous.

    Alan, it’s a single frame of a radar animation. When you look at the animation, you see these little popcorn storms building and decaying. They do seem to be real.

      I’ve been checking all the weather radars and it is not storm activity . It’s back scatter caused by very high humidity (90-95%) over the eastern half of the continent. Each blob you see is centered on a Doppler radar site. The satellite picture shows nothing except in New York and Louisiana.

        Yup. This is pretty common at night (when the relative humidity is highest); it’s not rain. Occasionally one also sees the paths of rivers outlined on radar, because warm water with cool air over it will generate fog.

    Shockingly, nothing over northern Ohio at that time. I couldn’t believe it!

    Still dry in Texas. I guess we just have to pray harder.

    I don’t think there will be rain in Texas as long Perry is Governor .Frankly,I think god is pissed with Perry and for good reasons.
