I picked up right at an inch last night. I was surprised, it hadn't rained at all through 11pm when I went to bed. That puts me around 1.5" for the week. Need to double that.

 

It's good we cashed in last night.  Models have removed today's big event.

 

Next Thursday is the next solid chance of rain.


season snowfall: 3.4"

 

'17-18: 39.5"      '16-17: 17.9"      '15-16: 20.0"      '14-15: 30.4"      '13-14: 48.3"      '12-13: 34.1"

 

Average snowfall: ~30"

Big time flip being advertised Day 5-10 on the EPS as GEFS are playing catch up.  Looks like North America fills up with a lot of cold air for the time of year.  EPS getting colder each day.  Arctic cools off big time.

Hazy warm and humid would describe the weather today here in SEMI perfectly. Although, skies have been mostly cloudy for the most part, some sunshine does try and peek out from time to time. Temps are in the 80s.

Happy Father's Day!  Thankfully, the severe wx threat has settled down for a lot of the members so that everyone can enjoy a splendid day with the fam.  Have a good one!

Hope everyone had a relaxing Father's Day weekend.  Who's ready for some relief from the heat???  I would love to see some cooler weather out here.  00z EPS 6-10 Day temp forecast showing a huge area of cooler wx east of the Rockies.

In other news, folks visiting Yellowstone Nat'l Park may feel the ground shake a bit from what has been a recent earthquake swarm which is normal.  Last weeks 4.5 magnitude quake was the most meaningful one that had people feeling un-easy.

Absolutely, dry heat can be more tolerable than hot, humid, steamy heat. In Greece, whenever I am there, I have experienced temps of 110F+, while it can be 95F in the shade. Desert-like weather indeed. From time to time, a pop-up thunderstorm cannot be ruled out, although, it is a mainly sunny and hot, dry summer (90% of all 3 or 4 months into the early parts of Autumn).

The islands are much cooler. I usually go to Andros Island, which is located NE of Athens. I take the fairy from Athens dock area and it usually takes around 1 hour and 45 minutes to arrive. The boat ride is sweet.

True, but it feels like a blow drier blowing hot air in your face or when you open an oven door! Lol

I left the gym earlier and sat on the patio deck eating some soup and it felt like I was in a sauna sweating profusely.

NPR chose to report on the heatwave from Death Valley where the woman ranger said 125+F they will see most years, though July & August is more typically when. It's a couple weeks early this year she said. 110 is my personal hottest, though 1988s 104/113 with heat index in MI felt worse!

Interesting to see how after those hot and humid days of last week it looks like the low to mid-70s (with the exception of Thursday/Friday) for the time being - not that I'm complaining - but it will be interesting to see if these cooler days are what we have all summer.

Along with the JMA, the CFSv2 is suggesting a cold Antarctic next month.  Of note, Greenland might not have much of a melt season.

That all depends what the average high is for this date. Although, it does seem a bit nippy for this time of the year.

I hope we can see a repeat of Winter 13-14. Every week I received 2 or more snowstorms, followed by bitter cold air. The ground was snow covered from late November until mid April. Also, it actually snowed in May of that year. It just did not want to quit snowing. My snow piles had remained into the month of May. A winter to remember.

Unfortunately, we only made it to 119F at PHX yesterday.  Oh, so close...it was the hottest temp I've ever had to endure.  The wind blowing the hot air against your body literally warmed it instead of cooling it!  #LivingInTheDesert

This is "don't have to" weather that is don't have to have the air on and don't have to have the heat on.  From mid May to mid October we get a lot of these days here in Michigan more than many people think I would guess more than half.

I picked up 0.20" today from multiple brief showers.  A few spots around the area, like where James is, received some good totals.  We sure stayed cool today compared to areas farther west and south where it was dry and sunny.


season snowfall: 3.4"

 

'17-18: 39.5"      '16-17: 17.9"      '15-16: 20.0"      '14-15: 30.4"      '13-14: 48.3"      '12-13: 34.1"

 

Average snowfall: ~30"

JMA Weeklies are out today and the pattern is locking into an overall wetter/active one for the Midwest/Lakes/S Plains.  If you want the heat, go out west!

Antarctica looks brutal next month!  I find it rather interesting that both sides of the earth's Poles will have troughs centered over them.  One stronger than the other given the time of season/year.

12z GFS...Welcome to July!  Might be a preview to a below normal month as a whole...

Love seeing this map say "0" over me still. I hope I can keep this <90º streak going. Love this weather.

Thursday night looks interesting...very high dew points and a strong summer cold front...

 

Grand Rapids office highlighting the likely T-storms, but they will also be weakening as they cross Lwr MI and head towards Marshall. Prolly be enough noise to spoil my sleep though, as per usual the last several years  :rolleyes:

we're nearly 7 degrees above normal and have had 12 days over 90 degrees already this month. I'm skeptical about any kind of below normal month. A few days, sure, but I'm not holding my breath for any kind of a "cool" month overall. We haven't had one of those in almost 2 YEARS.

18z High Rez NAM suggesting a taste of early Autumn as a cold core trough rotates through MN/WI over the weekend...daytime temps in the low 60's and possibly upper 50's!  #SparkTheBonFire

Probably, but wouldn't be surprised if a few spots have low highs for the time of year.

0.59" here from last night's storms.  This is the way it has been going for the last ten days.  I'm getting some to decent rainfall from each little event, but haven't been able to break through with a bigger rain like I usually do in June.  My monthly total is 2.37".  A few spots around eastern Iowa, especially northeast Iowa, have received several inches this month.


season snowfall: 3.4"

 

'17-18: 39.5"      '16-17: 17.9"      '15-16: 20.0"      '14-15: 30.4"      '13-14: 48.3"      '12-13: 34.1"

I loved heading down to the Lake of the Ozarks, especially the known "Party Cove", looks like it may be an active/wet holiday weekend.  I think their Memorial Day had bad severe storms
