Here in way-too-freakin-sunny Ann Arbor, it's 89° (heading toward 95°) with 67% humidity; it feels as if it's 101°. It's like that in a lot of places today. (Strangely enough, according to friends on FB, not in most of Texas. Go fig.) It's going to be like that most of the week. The lows are in the 70s.

If you happen to be in one of those places, please keep yourself hydrated, stay in the air conditioning as much as you can, eat light meals with protein, keep yourself hydrated, don't leave pets or kids in the car -- did I mention keeping yourself hydrated? This is killing weather.

How is it where you are, and how are you dealing with it?

From Chicago, across the Ohio Valley, all the way to D.C. Weatherdude from dKos says that many local weatherpeople are dropping the ball on explaining "derecho" to viewers, so the link above details not only the weather risk tomorrow, but what a derecho is and why you should worry about it.

Hunker down, stay alert, stay safe, check in.

Horrible. Please, please, if you live or were traveling anywhere in the area, sound off so we know you're all right.

Live video feed from News 9, thanks to CJ Cherryh on FB. Get your asses down, stay safe.

ETA: Holy crap. Lots and lots of damage, houses smashed, at least one school devastated. Lots of debris in the roads, lots of cars tossed all over the damn place, many with people still in them. And it's still going on. Please please please stay safe and check in when you can.

It's looking like eastern Oklahoma, southwest Missouri, and northwest Arkansas will be taking the brunt today. But the system stretches from Mexico up into Canada, and it'll likely get a boost when it reaches the Gulf, so watch out for "regular" storms as well.

As usual, weatherdude from dKos has the 411.

Stay alert, stay safe, check in after it's past.

A reiteration: There are more nasty storms generating in Oklahoma and Kansas, feeding off the stuff that's been whomping on north-central Texas. (Did Dallas-Ft. Worth piss off Aang and Katara, or what?) As usual, the amazing weatherdude at dKos has the 411. Stay alert, stay safe.

Long, narrow band of intense storms along a front slicing diagonally from Missouri toward Canada. Under the gun: Indiana, southern Michigan, surrounding areas (esp. the Ohio Valley). Weatherdude at dKos has the 411. Stay alert, stay safe, check in when you can. I'm likely to bail out of here myself in an hour or three.

Worst Week Evar.

ETA: I'm fine so far. The storms were loud but brief. On the other hand, all I saw this afternoon was the southern edge of the front. There's still a whole lot of wet coming up from Indiana, and while it may not be severe weather it certainly is soggy.

Everybody okay from this, or hunkered down where you have to be? Sound off, so we know you're all right.

It's supposed to dump a few inches on me (enough that I am not going to CapriCon this weekend, sorry), and then meet up with another system and drop one to two feet of snow on NY and New England.

Weather Underground has a live blog (pay no attention to the idiocy of their Weather Channel ownership that's trying to foist snowstorm names down our gullets).

And, of course, weatherdude is on top of things as well.

Hunker down, stay safe, check in.

Jordan Metzi and his New York Runners in Support of Staten Island.

If you want to help out the un-slogging of NYC and the Northeast, visit Occupy Sandy.

Not kidding around here -- Big Honkin' Death Storm coming, already affecting my weather here in Ann Arbor from all the way off the East Coast. In addition to all your normal sources for weather info; there are some resources at dKos: terrypinter has the first Mothership (live-blog central) diary, chaoslilith picks up the baton from terrypinter, and weatherdude goes into the science.

Be safe, and check in when you can.

Because thunderheads have neckbolts, y'know?

Seriously, apparently Hurricane Sandy is getting ready to make Really Bad Weather Shrimp Boil out of a hunk of the Eastern Seaboard. All standard cautions apply: stock up on food, water, and other necessary items; get to someplace safe; hunker down; and check in when you can, so we know you're okay.

Already hitting the Keys. Anyone in FL, GA, Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee, maybe the Carolinas -- stay alert and stay safe.

And, if you're heading for Dragon*Con this week -- like me -- be extra careful. You're gonna be on the roads or in the air, away from known shelters. Make sure your car has an emergency kit.

Love having a little advance notice. Weatherdude's got the 411. Stay alert, stay safe. We'll have a check-in post tomorrow.
