Let's Talk About the Weather - The New Temp Thread

Another "cool" front blew through Indy last night with a reinforcing short of cool air.  Lots of wind and temps today in the 60's.  Maybe some light frost tomorrow.  We are still way down in the rainfall department but we got half an inch Wed. afternoon and that was as much as we received in all of August!

Well Spd, Mean People Suck!, even if they're family. Smiley Wink

 

I can't believe your power company gets away with such crappy service and constant outages. Seems like you're w/o power as much as it's on. And it has to be terrible in that heat and humidity. Can't PUCO or the county/state utilities commission do something about it? Maybe the CEO has stock in generator manufacturers??

 

They had a pretty dismal story on the NBC national news tonight called the "Scorched Earth". US is in the worst drought since the early 50's with crops dieing fast. Then they talked about the dangers of more huge forest fires. And where the fires wiped out the forests/ground-cover in Colorado they're getting ready for huge mudslides with the first heavy rains that fall. No-win situation.... Smiley Sad

Re: Let's Talk About the Weather - The New Temp Thread

We got much needed rain at home last night.  About three quarters of an inch in about half an hour.  Narrow little storm that widened out as it moved out.  No rain at work, 3 miles away.  Today, it rained .3" @ work and hardly any at home.  The airport didn't get any, last night, so they extended the longest dry spell (0.09") to 47 days.  AND we had ANOTHER triple digit day, yesterday @ 101.

 

I am actually looking forward to November.  Smiley Mad

Re: Let's Talk About the Weather - The New Temp Thread

We were just under a tornado warning that was just cancelled. We are still under a severe t-storm warning and it is raining now. Let's see how much we get. The temps have already dropped 10 degrees.

Got .30 inch of rain this morning in about 15 minutes, came down buckets. Hit 100 again yesterday, today is in the upper 80's but very humid, dew point around 75. We were just put under a severe thunderstorm watch until 8 tonight, bring on the rain! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Let's Talk About the Weather - The New Temp Thread

Was going to run to the store today but didn't since it was dark as night with thunder booming just N of us. So what did we get? - zilch and not a drop of rain! Smiley Sad

Temps did drop quickly from 96 to 73 but the humidity didn't. Humidity is probably still high because of all the rain just N.

 

Yep Spd, cut the strings and/or just completely avoid them...

Re: Let's Talk About the Weather - The New Temp Thread

Not much to say tonight.  Pant, pant.......our high reading occurred in the late afternoon and topped out a 109.2 degrees.  It's not over either.  The forecast is for even hotter tomorrow.  No rain in sight.  Some small thunderboomers built up out in North Central Kansas and moved straight east toward us but then the sun went down and they dissolved.  Can you believe we may still have another month of this sort of thing to get through?

Wow Phil, you must be gettin' pretty crispy by now,Smiley Surprised and ya had to go and remind us it's only July still.Smiley Sad

 

We hit 100 yesterday, 98 the day before, but only 95 today. We were lucky though, got a whole half inch of rain in about 30 minutes this evening. Now it's just a bunch of rumbling thunder. Looks like we might have a chance for a little more rain befor the night is out

Re: Let's Talk About the Weather - The New Temp Thread

Late last week they got 3" of rain just N or here and 2" just S. But we ended up with a measly 1/4".

 

I finally turned the AC off because of the cool nights. But we're in a pattern of huge day/night temp swings where it was mid-50's last night/earlier this morning and may hit 90 today. With the humidity so low (30%-40%) the heat isn't bad at all.

 

Don't think we're in a year with the 12-year or 17-year Cicada hatching cycles but I will say the Cicadas are tremendously loud around here in the woods. You can barely hear yourself think when outside.

Re: Let's Talk About the Weather - The New Temp Thread

We don't live in the woods, Uni but the cicada's are maddeningly loud here, too.  This morning, black birds of some sort, were everywhere looking for cicadas.  They beat the cicada killer wasps to the prey by about an hour. 

 

We got about an inch of rain between early Saturday morning and daybreak on Sunday.  The most rain since May 1st.  The lawns do not look like hayfields any longer but still have the dormant look.  The areas under the trees and around downspouts are vibrant green, however.

Re: Let's Talk About the Weather - The New Temp Thread

My bet would be they were either Grackles or Red-winged Blackbirds eating the cicadas Dave. I know Robins, woodpeckers, and some other insect eating birds feast on them too. No matter how many the birds eat they will never dent the population since there's so many cicadas in certain years.

 

Actually my grass is growing some from the cool nights and brief rains we've been getting. Last week was the 1st time I mowed it in 6 weeks!

Re: Let's Talk About the Weather - The New Temp Thread

Yup, Grackles!  I'll have to mow my front yard, in a day or so.  It has been forever.  I may have to mow the downspout "delta's," too!

Re: Let's Talk About the Weather - The New Temp Thread

Our weather has become outright depressing.  Another 100+ day here.  It hit 106.5 degrees this afternoon.  Even the Alf  did not want to stay outside very long. at a time.  But tonight he and I went for a walk at 8:30 and it was not so bad.  Between 85 & 90.  I finished watering the yard this afternoon.  Won't do it again for 2 to 3 weeks.  As I've said before.....just trying to keep the grass roots alive.

 

We have rain in the forecast but I'll believe it when I see it actually falling.  I'm beginning to believe that living a few miles directly east of a large metropolitan area has an effect on our weather.  Actually there is a name for it.......Heat Dome.  All the heat retaining pavement, structures, etc. in the city results in the city creating it's own weather - so to speak.   It seems like approaching storms and rain areas just seem to dissolve away as they get to Kansas City, Kansas and Missouri.  So we get a big zero.

Yep Phil.  I also live almost due East of a large metro.  They call it an "Urban Heat Island," here.  Often the airport, which is SW of the city, is 5-10 degrees cooler than downtown or points East. 

 

We also have the disappearing rain syndrome where 7-8 times this year, widespread rains simply dried up before they get here.  And then they build anew, 80 miles East of here.  I'm not sure if the city heat stops them or not because they dry up like 80 miles West of town.  That may be more of a time of day factor, or humidity.

 

It also doesn't' help rain events that our humidity has been so low, this summer.  Rain simply can't start or continue when the humidity is lower than 30%.  It was in the mid 90's yesterday but drier than Las Vegas.  The sky was not deep azure blue like it gets in the fall but it was as blue as it ever gets in August, when it's that hot.  Odd summer.

Re: Let's Talk About the Weather - The New Temp Thread

We had a storm come through here last night. I was sitting at a stop light and the wind was blowing so hard the very leading edge of showers was making drops go horizonal across the windshield.

 

Growing moss under the trees is looking good with all the showers.  I too finally need to cut the grass.
