  1. Looks like we’ll make a run at 90 Sun-Tues. I swear there were claims of a fast start to fall….

  3. I agree. It was god awful so many times this summer. I still remember when it had like a week straight of 100+ temps and multiple days of 110+ and we never hit 100 once. It's not even off by 5 degrees or less, usually 10+ degrees off.
  4. Nowhere near 100 today. Much more humid than forecast and the Smokey skies again kept the temperatures down to 91.0 for the high. Dew was around 70 all day.
  5. Forecast has been bumped up to 99 now for Saturday.
  6. 50.4 this morning on my weather station. Coldest low since June 2nd. Might hit 100 this Saturday, which would be something for mid September! I'm seeing some early talk of winter forecasts from a couple of local mets, and they are referencing years where we were pretty dry for snowfall amounts, like less than 20" total. Kinda expected given the 50" we had last winter.
  7. According to my records on my weather station, except for one day on 6/20, this is the first day since 5/27 with strong, gusty winds out of the NW. We've had windy days since then, and days with winds out of the NW, but not a combo of the two of them after the passage of a cold front.
  8. Here's my monthly summary for my backyard. Avg low: 66.4 (+.8) Avg high: 87.6 (+1.8) coldest low: 55.0 (2nd) warmest high: 96.8 (23rd) precip: 4.93" (+.33") Like almost everyone else had a hot and muggy August with 10 days over 90 degrees and multiple days with dews in the upper 70s and even low 80s. Up to 34 days this summer with highs over 90 now. Max heat index on my weather station was 112.5. It was mainly hot, humid, and dry to start the month, but the last 10 days were more active. Had 3 severe tstorm watches, 4 severe tstorm warnings, a flash flood warning with severe flooding downtown Omaha, and 5 days of heat advisories. Only had 1 day with measurable precip the first 19 days.
  9. I put together a short clip of the big hail we ran into up in SoDak on 8/22. The storm was “only” warned for quarter sized hail and I don’t mind driving into that. But the storm was strengthening rapidly and we ran into ping pong to golf balls. Saw on the SPC a report of baseballs about a mile from where we were at!
  10. We had a high school kid die here in Omaha during football practice a couple of weeks ago. Tough weather for sure
  11. I saw a post on Twitter from a hurricane guy showing the upper level patterns and that it’s showing a potential hyper active hurricane threat coming up towards the 1st of September.
  12. We only had .07” up here on the north side of town. Winds were gusty but no damage.
  13. Only .15” over the weekend in MBY. Grass is definitely browning up. Chased yesterday in SoDak and had a great time. Amazing structure, big hail, and a tornado warning on a storm that tried really hard but the RFD was too strong. Will post some pics later. Meanwhile another day in paradise
  14. 17 days into the month and it's rained exactly 2x here. Thankfully it was a good soaking of almost 2", but it's been dry otherwise. The NAM is looking very interesting for severe weather in SE SoDak and NW Iowa on Friday...
  15. More flooding video including people trapped in an elevator with water up to their necks!
  16. Ended up with 1.92” of rain yesterday. .42” from morning storms and 1.5” last night’s storms.
  17. Saw a report of 2.08” in 30 minutes in southwest Omaha too.
  18. Stats from my backyard for July Avg low: 66.6 (-1.4) Avg hi: 87.7 (-.4) Precip: 6.20" (+2.65") Coldest low: 56.3 (12th) Warmest hi: 96.4 (28th) 2 severe tstorm watches, 5 days with heat advisories, 2 days with Flash Flood watches. Had powerful storms move thru just after midnight the night of the 9th with a wind gust of 96 mph at the airport and over 190k people without power at one point. Power took 8 days to fully restore.
