The first cold Fall storm is expected in the Northern Rockies and Upper Midwest Wednesday. Cold air and rain will spread across all of Montana and North Dakota, while the storm produce two seasons in one day in South Dakota. The standard deviation for the state is an incredible 2.4…ranging from 1 in the west to 9 in the east. Highs in the 40s for the west part of the state and mid 70s in the east! Ahead of the front, perfect weather in Wisconsin and a small part of Minnesota. This includes: Marengo, Marshfield, and Sparta in Wisconsin.
Some isolated 10’s out West including Southerlin and Winchester, Oregon…Lassen National Park and Guernville, California.
Lots of frost/freeze issue tomorrow morning, but only West for now. The cold storm in the Northern Rockies will produce snow above 5,000 feet, so widespread freezes in the higher elevations of Montana. Also, some patchy frost in the Willamette Valley of Oregon around the outskirts of Salem.
Best: 1. Wisconsin 2. Kentucky 3. Alabama 4. Tennessee 5. Arkansas
Worst: 1. Montana 2. North Dakota 3. Alaska 4. Wyoming 5. South Dakota

Sorry, not a lot of time to do an expanded blog entry today.

After several days of difficult predictions by the National Hurricane Center, it now looks like Isaac will head to New Orleans. Ironically, it will make landfall 7 years to the day on the anniversary of hurricane Katrina. But, this is the busiest time of year in the tropics, so having a land-falling hurricane on that date is not unusual. As you can imagine, the PWI reflects the hurricane conditions expected down in the Bayou.
Elsewhere, very average run of the mill days today and tomorrow, but the Great Lake states will be the best. Wisconsin on top today and Michigan best tomorrow. A few selections of perfect 10’s include: Bessemer, Michigan and Saltese, Montana.
Best 1. Wisconsin 2. Minnesota 3. Oregon 4. Idaho 5. Washington
Worst 1. Alaska 2. Florida 3. Georgia 4. Ohio 5. Arkansas
Best 1. Michigan 2. Wisconsin 3. Indiana 4. Oregon 5. Ohio
Worst 1. Louisiana 2. Alabama 3. Mississippi 4. Florida 5. Georgia

Bond Falls near Paulding, Michigan
Wisconsin’s weather will be about as good as it gets on Tuesday with PWI 9’s across nearly the entire state. There will also be a few areas of perfect 10’s in the Northern Highlands including Chelsea and Rib Lake. Also, Milltown in the western part of the state will score a perfect 10. A much larger area of perfect 10’s will be found in the UP of Michigan from Paulding to Winona to Hubbell. Today’s image is of Bond Falls from Paulding, Michigan. Paulding is also known for the infamous Paulding Light…a mysterious light which appears at night and is unexplained. It has been said to be anything from ghosts, headlights and swamp gas.
