Weather Watch
  • Weather Watch Even though it may appear that we’ll get cloudy skies and showers for most of the weekend, when Hurricane Ike slams into the Texas coast and moves northwestward and brings torrential rains and flooding to sections of eastern and central Texas, this will signal a continuation of sunny or partly sunny skies in Otsego County, with most or all of the rainfall occurring at night or early in the morning.

  • Weather Watch During the past week, the combination of unusually warm weather in the northern Great Plains and upper Midwest, combined with Hurricane Gustav along the central Gulf Coast, ensured a continuation of magnificent last summer weather here in Otsego County.

  • Weather watch Friday will bring a continuation of partly to mostly sunny skies, moderate humidity and highs near 80 degrees, as all that rain associated with what’s left of Fay stays to our south across the Carolinas and mid-Atlantic states northward to Pennsylvania. On Saturday, a cold front approaching from western New York will bring the chance of a shower or thunderstorm in the afternoon;

  • Weather Watch During the past week, the Northeast got the coolest weather in the nation. That’s because of a series of low pressure systems that rotated around a large upper-level trough in place over eastern Canada. This provided unusually cold air aloft, and a very unstable atmosphere.

  • Weather Watch Very quickly, we went from a dry weather pattern to an exceptionally wet weather pattern. During the first 13 days of July, we got only sixth-tenths of an inch of rain at our weather station in Otego.

  • Weather Watch Since the jet stream will stay far to the north and high pressure will become nearly stationary off the East Coast, the dry and sunny weather pattern will continue in the Cooperstown area.A series of weak troughs will slide to the north early next week, but dry conditions will prevail for much of the time.

  • Weather Watch Each day during the past week featured better weather than most local weather forecasts indicated. That’s because most of the showers and thunderstorms shifted southward, with a series of upper-level lows and a northwest flow aloft.

  • Weather Watch It was nice to get a break from the very warm and humid weather during the past week, with a series of upperlevel low pressure systems and a northwesterly flow aloft. Exactly as we predicted, beautiful weather prevailed all weekend, as all the rain occurred at night and early in the morning.

  • Weather Watch After the intense heat wave, followed by cooler air but continued above normal temperatures, we got a refreshing change to a much cooler weather pattern.

  • Weather Watch Many of our readers may not be aware of some major differences between a June heat wave and an August heat wave. In early June the angle of the sun is already much higher than it is even in late July or early August, and the sun is getting higher in the sky each day.
