7 am here in Central Nebraska the temp is 52 degrees. Wow.

Enjoy it as much as you can my friend!  Doesn't it put you in the Autumn mood for the time being???  Just had my morning walk and over the past week or more, I've enjoyed the cool mornings.

It is going to change but it is so wet around here it might limit the extreme heat but the dew points will be high.

This, I totally agree, as I have my doubts of the sizzling upper 90's that are being forecasted.  However, like you said, the humidity may be the dagger.

Let's see if it indeed comes NE bringing that nice rain shield over mby? Last winter they all trended SE and only grazed me.

Wind trends say it could happen. Switched around to the NE

If no isolated cells hit us today, this will be my driest July since 2012.  However, 2.70" isn't terrible.  We could use an inch or two of rain, but it's not really dry.  That could change, though, if we soar into the 90s with little or no rain over the next ten days, like the euro has been suggesting.


season snowfall: 0.0"

 

'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"

July 2018 will be one of the warmest on record in parts of Michigan.  With just one more day to go Sault Ste Marie with a mean of 70.2° is tied with 1955 for its  3rd warmest July on record with only 1921 and 2012 being warmer. Records have been kept at the Sault since 1888. At Alpena with one day to go they are having their 5th warmest July on record. Records there have been taken since 1917. While at Marquette just 165 miles to the west with its mean of 66.4° it is only the 52nd warmest July there. Here at Grand Rapids with the mean of 74.5° and at Lansing with a mean of 73.5° both locations are now at 21st warmest July. And at Muskegon with a mean of 73.5 they are in 10th place. Will update this tomorrow for the finial placing

To look at radar, this system is not too impressive so I'm not sure what GRR's looking at?

 

Guess we'll see  :unsure:

@Okwx, did the soaking rains hit your back yard???

Yeah. Had great showers and storms the the last few days with 2.02" of rain. Not a bad pickup to close July. Finished at 3.39".

Closed it out with a foggy drizzly July morning. Pretty weird to have fog like that here in July. Hung around until around 10 before it cleared. Another diverse month like the rest of this year. I even wore sleeves this morning.

The official rain fall total at the airport was 2.30” but here at my house it was just 1.21” 8 days were clear 20 partly cloudy and 3 were cloudy.  July 2018 was the 21st warmest July at Grand Rapids.

Most of I-80 from Chicago to Lincoln had a drier than normal July. DSM is the stand out with only 0.38" for the month. Meanwhile, typically drier areas in Western Nebraska received above normal precipitation.

Think I heard this was the 7th driest July on record for Chicago

I will have to get exact numbers, but most of Central and Southwest Nebraska was above normal and some areas way above normal. Local newspaper had me at 5.5-6.0 inches. Normal is close to 4.0 but many years it is much below this. Sorry to hear about the dry weather in other places. I have not run my lawn sprinklers in almost 1 month. Amazing.

Most of you out in the plains of NE into IA and IL ended up BN temp wise, however, except for NE, the rest stayed BN in the precip category.

These maps are spot on Tom. Our airport just reported July precipitation at 5.79. That is very close to my readings at the house. Airport about 1 1/2 miles east of me. Average for July is between 3.5-4.0 though in the summer of 2012 it was .01.

I know in those maps I'm hard to see down there but crazy that I crossed into positive territory in the last hours of the month literally.
