My wife said she seen an all brown (cinnamon colored) whooly worm. No black on it. I have read where someone in TN seen an all brown one and others seeing short black ends with a large brown area in the middle. After doing some reading that does not sound like what we would like to see from a whooly worm. Mostly a warm middle of winter. I know not scientific, any other 'humble opinions' out there or any other 'sightings'.
RECORD EVENT REPORT NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ST LOUIS MO 235 AM CDT WED SEP 21 2022
...RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURE TIED AT ST. LOUIS...
A RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 97 WAS TIED AT ST. LOUIS YESTERDAY. THIS TIES THE OLD RECORD OF 97 SET IN 2017.
I tried looking up some stuff on this. My initial curiosity concerned how many other dates were/are involved when a temperature record is tied. The first location was in the NowData section of Climate, Here showing a high of 97* on 9/21/1881. I was promptly 'sidetracked' (happens alot in my head) into the page "Bi-State Area Weather Trivia" Here I noticed after I started trying to look at the different links regarding severe weather I would get a 'This site can't be reached' page. Here I also noticed that this sites' latest 'date of records' was 2008. It might have been mentioned before on here, but did this site get moved somewhere or discontinued?
I know what you're saying. The way record keeping works is to put the last year in which that temperature was observed. It kind of make sense to do it that way, but then there's no way of knowing (without more research) what the other years were or whether it was even a tie or not.

Get ready to say bye bye to the heat, at least probably anything higher then 90* or more till next year.
Well I say that, but Saturday does have the look of overachieving on the highs with stout west, southwest winds, low humidity and down-slopping off the Ozarks, we could get a mid or upper 90 then, but briefly and HI might actually be less than the air temperature. Past that though anything looks 90 or below for the next several days. A lot depends on the system in the gulf which the 18Z does then drop a diablo ridge and highs back into the 90s till that clears, so maybe one more heatwave to go before Summer's truly done with us.

Looks like Belleville to East St. Louis really cashed on on this 'non' event. That's why you can never truly turn your backs on a 20% chance of storms. Likely some good downbursts that came out of that. Not looking forward to all the tree branches and limbs that are going to be scattered around the lawn in the morning. Much needed rain however, and will prevent this month from being one of the driest Septembers. Bonus to the fact that the models even the convective ones called for a dry frontal passage through St. Louis. Not what nature had in her plans. Now for a taste of hoodie weather tomorrow and especially Friday before a brief bounce to reality on Saturday.

grizzlebeard: I'll put this here since it rarely rolls over: Please include your location in your profile, or identify your location when posting observations. You saying it is 20 and raining doesn't help if we don't know where you are. That is all.
