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!

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.


Same here with the temps...pretty hot during the day but the night have been NICE!!! Morning Uni and the rest of the guys here! Smiley Happy

 

Speaking of cicadas, I think that's what I heard the other day..not a whole bunch of them though. I know ot wasn't just a cricket...those cicadas are pretty loud! It was cool to hear though. Smiley Happy

 

How have you all been? Smiley Happy

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.


Morning Escapee! Smiley Happy Sounds like a dandy!! We had one like that awhile ago as I was leaving work...the rain came in SHEETS and sideways, too! I have leadfoot and I was actually CRAWLING my way home, follwing the tail lights on the car ahead of me. When I fnally got home, I sat in my car for at least 10 minutes til it slowed down a bit just so I wouldn't DROWN going from my car to the backdoor!! Smiley Tongue  I believe it was some kind of a roll cloud, or so the weatherman on the tv said.

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

Got some much needed rain, last night.  Could use about 5 times that much.  Looking at the NWS radar estimates, our neighborhood received between 1 and 1.5".  Area to the North and West got over 3 and there were even some roadway flooding, which has been non existant for months. 

 

Hope, Indiana, about 50 miles South had lots of wind damage.

 

More rain is possible today.

 

The NWS says that it''s possible that the heat may be over for the Summer as 1) in most drought years, the hot temps peaked by early / mid August and 2) all next week will be near normal, in terms of high temps - mid 80's.

Hey, good to see you Dennis and 108 does seem mighty warm! Smiley Wink

 

It almost seems cold here at 69 w/75% humidity and will drop to 55 by morning.

 

We finally got 1"-2" of rain here the past couple days which was real nice. May receive some more this week and high temps will be a nice change from 95 a couple days ago.

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

Got a total of an inch and a quarter of rain over the last 2 days, no downpours just slow and steady so it soaked into the ground nicely. More rain is forecast Sunday night through Monday night, time to put some fertilizer on the lawn. :smileyvery-happy:

 

54 degrees this morning, down right chilly compared to what we had the past few months and there's no sign of the heat returning in the near future.

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

Hiya Dennis.  Where the heck have you been recently?

 

We have had some break from the extremely hot 3-digit temperatures.  Believe it or not hour high today was 78 degrees.  WONDERFUL.  By the time Alfie and I finished our walk this morning I was feeling the need for a jacket or sweat shirt.  That breeze was rather cool at 69 degreest.

 

BUT.....by Wednesday the weather guys say we're going to be back at 100 degrees.

 

We've had 6/10" or rain so far in August.....about the same that we had for the entire month of July.  We get another summer like this and we'll be planting cacti in the landscaping.

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

First day in months the AC didn't turn on, never made it out of the 60's, cloudy and off and on showers all day and just when I was getting use to sweating. :smileylol:

 

The big annual Air and Water Show along the lake front here in Chicago this weekend, supposed to be perfect weather both Saturday and Sunday, sunny skies and temps in the 70's.

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

The drought and heat wave are waning.  Here in Indianapolis, the dormant areas are looking smaller and smaller.  We picked up a quarter inch of rain, last night.  This weekend is also supposed to be "about perfect," with highs in the mid to upper 70's.

 

Speaking of cicada's - I had an interesting occurance, yesterday.  A cicada killer wasp crashed right into me - and he was carrying his prey!  The hapless, dead cicada tumbled to the ground and the cicada killer fluttered around my face as if he were asking me what I had done with his luggage.  He then spotted it and tried to pick it up but I put my foot down, so to speak.  Smiley Wink  It did not end well for the wasp.

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

Nice to see you, showtime!

 

We've had 104-108 feels-like temps, but got some much needed rain for the past 2 days.  Really came down hard for a long time; some of the bar ditches were still full a hour ago!  Can't say it feels any cooler though! 

 

Speaking of cidadas, I'm finding dead ones all over, even in the atrium!  No holes in them, and if birds got them, sure there wouldn't be bodies!  Most are not even full grown.  Smiley Sad

 

I hate cicada killers, and wish they'd pick on something else, like flying cockroaches!!!  Smiley Mad

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

We have been getting at least a shower 3 or 4 days a week. I have found out with my moss project that if I leave the few walnut leaves that fall in the the still bare patches a sprig or two of moss will get a hold. If the birds or squirrels would quit digging up the old areas.  I am learning what works and what does not.  Keeping the area too clean from debris does not help. The debris make little dams that catch the loose moss and cause the water to puddle instead of running off during the really hard showers.

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

We got just a hair under half an inch of rain last night....and it has stayed pretty much cloudy all day today so it's been cooler.  We need A LOT more rain.  But we'll take that 1/2 inch for starters.    We just hope Isaac comes up here into Missouri and dumps a few inches of rain on us.  But the forecast does not predict that unless he changes course.

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

Hope we get some rain today but that would be a real fluke!

 

Was going to mow grass last week, just parts of it need it, but why cut it so it just burns up in the full sun/90 degree heat for weeks? Leaves falling from walnuts and ash trees is about like Fall. Only difference is they're just burnt up brown/yellow color from drought type stress conditions. Humidity running about 22% which seems like desert conditions to me!

 

Wishing those who may be in the path of Issac the best and be safe!

Wonder what maintenance they're doing on the weatherunderground radar since it's been down all weekend?

Radar shows more rain tonight, and look at the heat index range for today!

 

Had actually been less not the past few days.  Yeah, we don't need a hurricane, but I stocked up with extra spring water last week, and 2 more cases getting delivered today.  Need to restock the critter food supply today!

 

We've got W. Nile deaths here and first time they've sprayed in years!
