Went for a nice jog outside and I must say that it feels a tad muggy out there. Just a bit, not a lot. I guess its hard ta hold dry air in place in July, even with the passage of a CF.

Welcome back buddy. Got a line moving in to our west. See how much it holds together as the sun goes down.

Just took the garbage out and it looks like it wants to thunder out there. Looks like a front is coming. Will definitely dries us up after the passage of the weather front and bring excellent weather to all of Michigan. Right now, the weekend looks gorgeous.

Would sure like to borrow some of those dangerous thunderstorms and have them explode on top of SEMI. That would feel nice. :)

I checked the radar about 30 min or so ago and noticed the line of storms to my west looked strong enough to hold together for NE IL.  Had enough time to spread some commercial grade grass weed/feed.  Hope to get some soaking rains.  Weeds are killer this year IMBY!

Thanks man! I missed your post somehow. Ya, hope it holds as it looks like it should. Doing anything fun this weekend? It's th Chicago Scene Boat Party this weekend. I may check it out at the Play Penn. The forecast is as perfect as it can get to go out on the water/beaches. Upper 70's along the beaches and dews in the 40's!

Same here. Can't stand them d**n weeds. I must have at least cleaned out weeds IMBY this year (im thinking 3x or more). Its a hellova workout though, that's for sure.

Absolutely amazing weather on tap.  Think we're going to head up north tomorrow through the weekend - sunny and 80 for days and days.  The Boat Party is always a good time, sometimes a little too much fun ; )   Enjoy!

I figured you were on a long trip.  BTW, did you get hit by those flooding rains last week I think it was???  Going to be a fantastic few days around these parts with a taste of Northwoods air.  Can't wait.

I'm in Houston right now for the Summer and grew up here. This is by far the most pleasant Summer we have had here in my lifetime. Has not even hit or come close to 100 yet and looks to stay that way. Highest we've hit is 97. Yes there's been humidity but it's wetter than normal here so it's a fair tradeoff. Oh, and something more unusual: We're getting a cold front this weekend! Normally cold fronts don't start making it here until September. Won't make it any cooler but at least it'll do something about DPs. Dews in the 50s possibly? Those also normally don't come until late September.

I'm in Dallas, Texas for the next two weeks. It is hot. 100Fº hot.

 

Worked in Ft. Worth from mid-May through the summer of 2010. The day I left (May 10th) it was a cloudless 52 at noon, got down there and it wasn't bad right away, kinda caught the tail-end of spring I guess. But, MET summer of 2010 was DFW's 5th hottest on record with 27 days in August ranging from 100 to 110F actual. Only saving grace was the low-level winds were coming off the dry N. Mexico desert and not the GOMEX so it was a lot less humid than say a Houston summer. I actually got used to it and it was like being on extended vacation. The day it hit 110 though, Whoa! that was a whole nother level of hotness.

Maybe it is drier in SWMI than SEMI, no?! Something to search for and do some research indeed. :unsure:

 

It may be, due in part to the sandy soil in SWMI allowing the rain to drain through the top-soil better. I remember a lot of clay in SEMI and it seems the moisture just sat on top

 

My cousin lives there.  He hates this time of year...he told me to come visit sometime at the end of Sept or in Oct.  I don't blame ya if the heat/humidity is unbearable! 

 

Yeah, Oct was sunny and 80F every day!

Well it is now late July and here in the Grand Rapids area it is getting (for this area) kind of dry. As only 1.12” has been recorded this month and Since July 13th GRR has only recorded 0.07” of rain. And there has only 3 days with thunderstorms so far, this July.  On the temperature front the month mean of 72.8 (+0.1) almost exactly average. There has only been one day that it has gotten to 90°

There was some discussion as to what I think was if the one side of the state is “drier” than the other side well here is a site that has the Dew Points for the state of Michigan

0.53" here last evening, which is far below the expectation a couple days ago.  The widespread clouds/showers ruined the event for most of Iowa.  Except for the 2+ week hot/dry stretch in June, we've been getting regular moderate rain events that have kept us around average(and kept the grass green).  Unlike recent summers, we have not had any big events(3+").  Our biggest rain event since April has been only 1.2".

Well it is now late July and here in the Grand Rapids area it is getting (for this area) kind of dry. As only 1.12” has been recorded this month and Since July 13th GRR has only recorded 0.07” of rain. And there has only 3 days with thunderstorms so far, this July.  On the temperature front the month mean of 72.8 (+0.1) almost exactly average. There has only been one day that it has gotten to 90°

There was some discussion as to what I think was if the one side of the state is “drier” than the other side well here is a site that has the Dew Points for the state of Michigan

http://www.usairnet....gan/dew-points/

 

Meanwhile, finally, south of you along the I-94 corridor we've been doing so well, this MAY be the greenest July of my life? (I know July 2010 had a lot of flooding rains but I was in TX that yr not in Marshall)

 

Having said that, I see this current system is "DOA" with not a sprinkle to be had, so the month could finish on a dry note. Difficult to sustain any pattern except drought (lol) for an entire calendar month, especially since the elements don't acknowledge our calendar/seasons.

You can argue that some very late Sept/early Oct chill may be in the cards for overnight lows tomorrow night for parts of IN/MI posters...

Good morning!  It feels wonderful waking up to lower humidity levels and being able to sleep with the window cracked open while the sound of the trees/leaves whisking from the stiff breeze out of the NE.  Almost feels like an early autumn-like day in Sept.

 

Superb forecast!  I come back and Ma Nature delivers the goods.  Can't ask for a better 5-day forecast during late summer.

Aside from the breezy and choppy conditions on LM yesterday, I would have to say it was a success!  Great wx all around, but it got kinda cool as the sun began to set behind the city skyline.  All in all, a solid day on the water.  

 

Here was a short vid inside the Play Pen.  Let me know if it works.

For the most part, July ended up near normal temp wise near the Lakes/OV and pockets of above normal in the southern Plains, while the central Plains baked.

 

I believe ORD ended up with a +0.7F anomaly and a Top 6 ranking in the precip dept.

Omaha was 3.4 degrees above normal in July(I believe 25 months in a row now above average).

We also only had 1.23" of rain at the airport, which was 2.6" below normal.

Not 6th wettest like Chicago, but Marshall did make the GRR summary. A tad dry at the end, but otherwise a great summer month around my place

It may be, due in part to the sandy soil in SWMI allowing the rain to drain through the top-soil better. I remember a lot of clay in SEMI and it seems the moisture just sat on top

 

 

Yeah, Oct was sunny and 80F every day!

 

 

Sounds fun! Enjoy Niko buddy

Thanks! :D
