Yes that strange wet stuff falling from the sky is rain. We have about a third of an inch thus far here in Otsego and the temperature is 44°.
A milder pattern with highs in the 50s is expected this week before cold air returns again over the weekend into next week. Widespread rain this morning, associated with a slow moving front, will end from northwest to southeast this afternoon. High pressure behind the front leads to dry weather tonight and Wednesday, then low pressure moving through the Ohio Valley Region on Thursday will bring another chance of rain.
When we had our swimming pool (which I took down a couple years ago) tadpoles would hatch every spring, we would let them grow into frogs and put them in our pond and gardens before I had to get it ready for use around Memorial day. We would try to rescue as many tadpoles as we could before chlorinating the water. We loved the sound of the frogs on a warm summer evening. Still have frogs every year in and around the pond. We are still far away from frogs as the weather will take a turn to colder temperatures at the end of the week and on through next week.
I am working with our interactive radar programmers to make the radar faster loading and populate the map with more temperature readings, it seems to be sluggish of late. Most of the info and graphics auto update with the exception of a couple forecast maps I put together from the College of DuPage every morning from their storm lab.
