    Just checked out the Weather Channel.
    I couldn't believe what is instore for eastern US to Canada this afternoon.
    Big weather from the hurricane down Florida way all the way up north to Canada.
    Haven't seen a weather pattern like that in many years.

    And notice Central America and Baja.

    That's a lot of weather.

    You guys and gals down Florida way, be safe.

    Also pan over the Atlantic to see some more interesting patterns.

    Also interesting is how the weather around the world can change in just 6 short hours. Here's current versus a six hour projection:

    The grass still grows, I procrastinated, and the weather outlook for my locale (Dayton Oh )doesn't look that good for lawn mowing or leaf removal from the gutters.
    Maybe next Tuesday?

    The weather thing here was like a 30 degree bomb...not a gentle transition to autumn, It was 90 for the high and 70 by night ( +, with heat index) and then, just overnight it was 60's high and 30's low, with wind chill...
    but so it it goes,

    Some years have seen 40 degree swing betwixt day and night but it seems summer to winter, and winter to summer...it just seems rather abrupt to me.... not enough autumn, nor spring time.

    And speaking of the weather, has any else noticed The Weather Channel changed?

    In my case there's no local info that used to scroll on the bottom screen, but now only shows info for the larger cities across the country. And there used to be a side panel on the right that would show my area's radar alternating with current temp and sun rise/set times, that's no longer local either.

    I haven't seen "Local on the Eights" that's actually local, the way they did before.
    This has been so for about a month, I'd guess.

    We had a Tornado Warning for my county last week and The Weather Channel was absolutely useless... no scrolling banner appeared that I saw, even though the channel was interrupted by the Emergency Alert System advising of the warning.
    But TWC gave nothing.

    At least the local news stations broke their regular programming to track the storm, in real time.

    This gripe might need it's own thread....

    Well, the next day or so after I posted that gripe, TWC went back to (more or less) normal.
    Am now getting actual local info.

    It's going to get cold, suddenly.

    Looks like a cold November in my area. Hope it gets revised upward a bit.
