Looks like some storms are firing up near me! Looks like there is a decent one over carnation.

Haven’t really seen much lightning though I have been gaming with friends and I don’t necessarily think I have the best view of the storm that’s over carnation. I think clouds might be blocking the view a bit.

Showers are still firing on the leading edge of the boundary and gobbling up whatever residual CAPE is still around. I find it pretty funny that the convection wanted nothing to do with Seattle when it felt like the Midwest outside earlier today but of course they are perfectly happy to form on top of the 60 degree marine layer.

Marine layer displaces air and gets it moving up I think. We needed it for anything.

I love how when I think this is going to be a bust I start up a long game and then the peak of the thunderstorms happens during it lol. Still saw some nice flashes out the window though.

Soccer game went ahead, I figured out that they cancel games when the heat index is 91+ (keep in mind its an over 30 league with a respectable portion of the league being in their 50's and 60's (even a few 70's).  Heat index was 89, when I checked before I left the house, and It was about 88 at the start of the game, and was 79 when we finished up at 8pm.

Back here at the homestead, we started off the day at 56, topped out at 89, and currently sitting at 73.  A warm breeze is kicking up, actually felt pretty good.

Ended up with a high of 84F here today. That's warmer than every day last summer except for one day in June, one day in August, and a couple days at the end of July. Most years that would be my max temp for the year, but we're only in May so I wonder what the summer will bring...

Raindrops as I am sitting on the deck watching the sporadic lightning. Distant Thunder, frogs, raindrops, 65 degrees…One interesting mid May evening! 
 

Oh and the bats were having a feeding frenzy at dusk this evening!
