I really feel for ya bud.  While I've been able to sleep with the window cracked open a couple times this week and many times this summer, I can't imagine living each and every day with the stifling humidity.  In AZ, by the end of May through at least end of Sept, the A/C is crankin' non stop and the south & west facing windows have the blinds shut from midday till sunset.  So I can relate to what you've been experiencing.  I'm not the type of person who enjoys living each and every day with the windows closed.  Need that fresh air!  With that being said, by early next week, your going to be able to whip open those windows!

Not a bad morning over this way with temps in the low 70's, mid 50's DP's, sunny skies and calm winds.  Summery weather on tap today and through the remainder of this week.  Looks like some places are going to be in line for some severe storms Thu night into Fri to kick start an active pattern which will lead us into a possibly very "cool" 2nd half of the month.

It was back in Spring, when I had a vision of how this summer would evolve.  I'm satisfied to have stuck with my gut on what I believed would happen this month, even though there were some well known outlets (whom I follow) that disagreed with my thoughts.  IMO, this month was the most difficult month to forecast due to the mid season transition.  It's pretty obvious now that the pattern change is coming and from what I'm expecting, and seeing more evidence of, this pattern change will have legs. 

 

With all that in mind, I will always continue to learn, grow, study and share as much value as I can on here to all of us weather enthusiasts.  Lastly, I just wanted to say that I appreciate all of ya'll and welcome everyone's knowledge and participation in this forum.  Can you tell I'm in a good mood??  7/11...#numerology

I know we have had hotter summers, but the day after day humidity seems unusual. With all of the corn and irrigation around here there will always be more humidity locally. Saying all of this, when irrigation season ends at the end of August and cold fronts become more frequent, our dews really drop off in early September. Sounds like more storm chances then a cooler regime next week. I keep saying it, things have never been greener for the middle of July.

Low 80's next week and lower DP's will provide you with some welcomed relief.  All the rainfall you've seen over the past 30 days coupled with agricultural growth has provided the groundwork for a more humid summer.  I saw the corn in IA is head high, in early July, my oh my!  That will certainly provide plentiful evapotranspiration.  It's been a banner year for most of the ag belt this year.

No doubt about the corn. I was just talking to a coworker about that. Its very tall already. Should be a good year for farmers assuming no severe weather wipes it out!

This, I gotta see, which would fit the idea of a highly amplified and unusual summer pattern.  Target date is set for 7/22 to see if a direct discharge of summer time arctic cold, cross polar flow, to engulf the nation.  While departures may be well BN, avg temps this time of year are still well into the low/mid 80's for most of us except for the deeper south.  Check out the vectors off today's 12z GEFS illustrating an almost winter-like pattern setting up for the last week of July.  Amazing if it comes into fruition.

 

Folks, this may just be the beginning stages of where the atmosphere is heading as we head closer to Autumn.  A major amplification of the North American 500mb pattern is going to set up shop to close out the month.  Of note, all of this is happening while maintaining a +AO which clearly is suggesting that the -EPO, along with minimal Greenland Blocking, to be the driving force behind this set up

Heat advisory expanded to tomorrow. Tomorrow will be the worst day for a while I think. I genuinely do believe we saw our hottest readings for the Summer in June.

I like what I'm seeing over the next 10 days as we settle into a cooler and wetter pattern.  This weekend, nature will provide a nice "drink" for most of us across the Plains/MW.  Its been rather dry across the area and I can see some lawns already turning a bit brown.  More importantly, as a deeper trough develops, it will suppress the pattern and shift away from the "old" one we have been seeing over and over again this summer.  Folks who have missed out on the rains, will welcome them.  00z GEFS showing increased chances of noteable precip across MO/KS where the drought will be eaten away.

It is my opinion, as we head into the later cycles of the LRC, during late summer, the LRC and the cyclical nature of the pattern, is still useful but when "other" influencing factors arise, I need to make adjustments.  Hense, the reasoning why I think the S MW/Plains get wetter as we finish off summer and places near the GL's/MW get drier later next month.

Last night, was yet another example of WGN hyping the hot/humid weather. During last nights wx segment, Skilling's 7-day forecast showed low 90's Thu-Fri, mid/upper 90's Sat/Sun 95F/98F...why they would even suggest those temps are beyond me. Since then, temps have been lowered to near 90F which makes much more sense.


Dhu2SG3XUAAxGTw.jpg


Who's ready to turn off the A/C and give it a break finally??? Gosh, while we did enjoy a couple days of low DP's, the humidity is back this morning. While the sticky airmass is getting pretty old (I don't know how those who live in the Plains survive an entire summer), I think we all are looking forward towards next week as nearly all the models are in agreement that a Canadian airmass will invade the region by the start of next workweek!

I'm thrilled to hear the coach and all the boys lives were saved. What a wonderful ending to this story.


They probably swung too far in the cooler direction. Tomorrow in particular looks fairly hot with mid 90s not out of the question at ORD.

Ya, they've been going back and forth with temps but like today, debris clouds in the area may keep temps from reaching the 90's, esp on Sat and Sun.

An interesting system has been showing up on the models for Thu/Fri of next week that has an autumn-like look to it, tracking from the Plains towards the GL's.  Trough goes neg tilt and buckles as downstream blocking near Greenland blossoms.  You don't see this to often, esp in mid July.  Let's see if it holds on to this idea over the next couple days.

After digesting the JMA Weeklies and the pattern going forward, I think most of the central CONUS may have temp departures end up near average or even slightly below.  Some places near the GL's/MW may have some steeper departures depending how strong the troughs end up becoming.  Quite a balanced summer....hot start and like a "flip of the switch", right at the middle part of met summer, the cooler pattern hits.

Debris clouds from the storms up north have kept temps in the upper 80's (87F) at ORD. Tomorrow will be a different story, on the flip side, the weekend around here will prob feature more clouds than sun, esp with the frontal boundary over head. Doubt we hit the 90's Sat/Sun.

It's been hot and dry here for the past 11 days. Things have been drying up around here, even after a very wet June. Looking forward to rain chances this weekend and Monday, some models are showing 1-2 inch totals across the midwest. Only have had 0.4 inches of rain here in Cedar Rapids during the month of July so far.

Daylight is becoming noticeably less. We've had to have lost quite a few mins by now?

Indeed, I was thinking about that last night.  In the Chicago area, we peaked with 15 hours and 14 min of daylight on June 22nd.  Yesterday, marked the 1st day we ended up with less than 15 hours of daylight (14:59).  Wer're losing about 1 min/day on average but starts increasing to about 2 min/day next week.  In Aug, we start losing close to 3 min/ day and that continues into Oct.  Some subtle signs that Autumn is approaching.

Happy Friday the 13th!  Today's date has significant numerology meaning behind it.  Make it a phenomenal day.  Meantime, the forecast next week is looking amazing.  Those who need the rains in the S MW will get hit and the cool down will be welcomed by many.  Nice 7-day right there...

The Aztec Indians in the desert SW must have sent some impactful prayers to the Gods, bc nature is responding with a real fast start to the Monsoon.  Plenty more rain coming.  Although, with the heavy rains in the mountains, comes flash flooding and one of the most popular spots in AZ, Havasupai Falls, 100's were evacuated the other day.

Your area and most of IA has been a magnet for storm action this summer.  Except for the southern and eastern tip of the state, IA has done real well, but too much of a good thing in some places is bad for crops.  Looking forward to some storm action this weekend as I can see some cracks in the soil around my yard.

Another ground dampening for mby!!  rolleyes.gif  This Obs is almost laugh-worthy and very telling of the crappy dryness that has become the defacto wx pattern here:

I was a bit surprised to see this considering I think storms will be scattered in nature. But whatever floats their boat (pun intended).

Have had over 1/2” of rain from a storm at 2:30 AM and rainfall in the last 3 hours. It is 70 degrees with light rain continuing to fall. What a pleasant change. 12 z GFS keeps the wet pattern going through the rest of July. Nice.Attached File  07423FD1-926C-4C41-9A0E-B5FDC2E8F3F8.png   165.52KB   0 downloads

It's a hot, summery day here in Chi...surprised to see the DP is only at 58F which is making the 91F temp quite bearable.  Who knows, but today may be Chicago's last time it hits 90F+ for the summer.  Lucky Friday the 13th!

 

Edit: Just checked the surrounding areas and they are reporting DP's in the low 60's.  ORD's reading must be off or something.

Just peeked, Marshall's DP is 57F and here at Benton Harbor it's 60F so not that much different tbh
