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!

Kind of funny how the days can have such low humidity and the cool nights/mornings so high.

Changes expected Thurs when the warm front moves back up from the South.

 

Spent most of the day Monday spraying Roundup on my 800'-900' drive. Left shoulder is about ready to fall off after carrying a 3 gal (25 lb - full) sprayer around. Should get a backpack sprayer like we used to use at work but may not be worth the investment as infrequent as I spray. Not that pricey though.

 

Already spent $30 on Roundup and ran out. Will need to get some more today and would like to buy some Roundup Poison Ivy spray since it's 4' tall in lots of places next to my drive/yard. Seems like regular Roundup won't kill it but I refuse to pay $38/Quart for the Poison Ivy spray. These are concentrates you mix yourself and not RTU.

 

Not trying to kill all the Poison Ivy since it is good for wildlife. Just don't want it in areas where people may come in contact with it. Plus if your dog goes through it and gets the oils on his hair better watch out when petting him. Smiley Surprised

 


Uni, the humidity they post is 'relative humidity', colder air can hold less actual moisture than warmer air can hold.  Thus if the actual moisture in the atmosphere stays same, as the temperature cools, the 'relative humidity' will rise the cooler it gets. Smiley Wink

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

Rico, Poison Ivy is great for wildlife as can be read here. The small white berries help a lot of birds survive through the cold winter months up here when other foods are scarce. Of course then they poop the seeds all around your yard so you will catch it! Smiley Very Happy

 

I have a textbook which lists a lot more wildlife species than in the link which eat the berries. This includes bears, muskrats, mice, grouse, pheasants, quail, all woodpeckers, and many of the songbirds.

 

BTW, did I ever tell you the one when my younger brother was at camp as a kid? They were tent camping in the woods and they ran out of TP. So they had to use leaves and he used........ never mind. Smiley Very Happy

Interesting Chris and thanks for the explanation.
Does this still hold true when the temps drop below freezing? Seems like during the winter the colder it is the drier the air is. But there again the humidity, or maybe as you say the 'relative' humidity, may be higher at night and hence we get frost.

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

It is called fog above or below freezing. Just harder to produce as temps drop in the 30's and below.

Right Uni, at night the 'relative humidity' rises cause the colder air can't hold as much moisture.  Frost occurs at the 'dew point (100% relative humidity)' when it is below freezing; otherwise if above freezing we get dew.

 

Fog occurs as Radiation Fog:

This type of fog forms at night under clear skies with calm winds when heat absorbed by the earth’s surface during the day is radiated into space. As the earth’s surface continues to cool, provided a deep enough layer of moist air is present near the ground, the humidity will reach 100% and fog will form. Radiation fog varies in depth from 3 feet to about 1,000 feet and is always found at ground level and usually remains stationary. This type of fog can reduce visibility to near zero at times and make driving very hazardous.

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

After a day of 90 degree temps and gulf coast type dew points we just had a wicked line of thunderstorms roll through. Local news says 250,000 customers in Chicago and suburbs without power due to the high winds, thankfully I'm not one of them.

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

8 straight days of thunderstorms and might as well make it an even dozen since it won't let up until Sunday.

 

Getting real old but at least it's cooler now after a cold front rolled through last night. Probably the same one that hit you in Chicago last night, jfw. At least it didn't knock our power out but it did bring down some big trees in places not not far from here.

 

With all the rain the weeds/crabgrass are overtaking my lawn. When it was real hot/sunny yesterday (93 & 98 heat index) I hooked up a garden hose weed killer and sprayed the whole yard. Had to put on insect repellent 1st since the deer flies are real bad now and will give you a one heck of a bite. Once you hit the sun they're on you but don't bite through the repellent. Soaking wet w/sweat when done but at least I got the whole yard sprayed. Thunderstorm hit 4 hours later and hope I didn't waste my time with the herbicide being washed off. Smiley Sad

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

RAIN!!!!!  All morning with 80% today and 60% tonight!  Thunder and everything!

 

Supposed to rain next 2 days, and hope we don't flood; but what is it about rain that greens everything up better than sprinklers?

 

Hope your spray stayed enough to do good, Uni. Smiley Sad

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

Got called out and it was raining so hard I could hardly see to drive. The lighting was bad plus I saw the cops had the road blocked in the other direction due to a tree across the road. Lucked up as it quit just after I arrived. The sun was out just before setting.
Good to hear you guys are getting some rain. Hope it continues on a regular basis.

Already less than expected, nothing this PM, and barely 30% now next 2 days.  But I think it did help for the wildfire situation.
