Next to prime rib fish is my favorite food. Through my life time I have lived at various lakes and close to the Atlantic ocean so I had the opportunity to eat lots of fish and seafood. Of course we have never had a rain of fish in our area that I recall though there have been multiple instances of this happening in various areas around the world. I don’t think it would be comfortable standing outside during a time when it was raining fish plus the NWS isn’t designed to issue fish warnings. It wasn’t brought up at the last Skywarn meeting. It would be possible in our area I suppose as in most cases a water spout or tornado sucks them up and deposits them inland. Would the DNR allow us to capture these if they were on the ground rather than their natural habitat without a license? I digress and meander here… I fixed a great baked catfish last night. Baked fish is better for you than fried but with all the real butter I used it probably didn’t make a difference.
We will end our dry spell as the clouds increase today and much needed rain moves in tonight.
Winds will become southerly in advance of a cold front today and tonight. The south winds will bring in slightly warmer air and rain. Clouds will be on the increase today with rain spreading in this evening. It should be raining in most areas by midnight tonight. A steady rain overnight will continue into Tuesday morning before becoming more scattered in most areas Tuesday afternoon. The rain will taper off Tuesday evening with a dry forecast for Wednesday. Highs will range from 50 to 55 today through Wednesday.
The weather for this coming weekend is showing the possibility of rain and snow and I wonder if April Fools Day/Easter will hold surprises for us weather-wise as we head into a cooler wetter pattern.
The College of DuPage is having problems with their computer spitting out weather maps this morning – I will update these as they become available. I use their Weather Lab Software to produce the maps on the forecast page.
