July 2020 Observations and Discussion


Recommended Posts

The thin band of cells this evening built north just enough to drop a decent shower on me.  I picked up 0.12", which mostly filled my barrel.

A few miles south of me had a decent downpour, and east, and north, and......

Sunset here  

Holy smokes, what a night of driving...we are currently just passed Springfield, IL and on our final leg of the trip. I managed to drive all the way just before Tulsa, OK, then took a 2 hr break whil

A teeny tiny cell just tracked to my south and I saw a lone lightning bolt strike.  I'm very thankful for the rain I got yesterday which was a healthy amount to soak the vegetation.

Well, today is the beginning of a transition towards less humidity and very comfortable temps as we embark on a long stretch of slightly BN temps through the extended.  I'm thrilled to finally be able to turn off the A/C later today and let that machine take a break.  Anyone else agree???

Tracking a Summer Time...Lower Lakes Cutter???  The models continue to advertise a fascinating piece of energy coming out of CO and tracking S/SE and then veer E/NE up into lower MI.  This storm track reminds me so much of systems tracked in previous LRC cycles.  I'm quite intrigued at this wx set up and its very possible that some peeps on here in the eastern Sub will score some very heavy precip.

 

Let's take a look at the UKIE/EURO...

No doubt. Des Moines NWS has 70s for highs and 50s dews for next week.

I agree except that also means about no rain chances. Lawns are pretty brown now, but that means no mowing which is kind of nice too.

It is a rather nice and comfortable morning. The current temperature here at my house is now 67 with mostly clear skies. The low here was 60 and the low at GRR was also 60. Here is a kind of fun fact. While this July is going to end up with a mean temperature well above average. Most of the heat was in the first 10 days of the month. During the first 10 days of July the average H/L here at Grand Rapids was 91.4/67.6 for a mean of 79.7. But between the 10th to the 29th the average H/L has been a more normal 83.4/65.1 for a mean of 74.5 while still warmer than average it still have been more conformable then the first 10 days of the month.

After a hot one tomorrow, looks like 5-6 straight days of highs in the 70s. Alrighty.

OAX.N0Q.20200730.1139.gifAny OMA folks getting rain from these slow moving cells this morning????

Picked up a half inch of rain early this morning in my backyard, from an isolated cell that dropped an inch plus of rain over downtown Omaha towards Council Bluffs, IA.

 

We will take it even though we need plenty more still.

I just found out something that kind of surprised me. And that is we have had now 35 days in a row of 80 or better. Now this has not happened very often here at Grand Rapids. There is a good chance that this month will see all 31 days of 80 or better and that has only happened once and that was in 1955. The longest string of days of 80 or better that I can find was 52 in 1921 (from June 9th to July 30th) in 1988 there were 45 days in a row from July 12th to August 17th and in 1955 there were 42 days in a row from June 27th to August 7th  in 1916 there was a string of 34 days.

@CentralNeb, looks like last night some storms converged near your back yard. Did you score anything?? Gabel??

Prayers were answered. Got about 1” here overnight and more rain has been rotating Northeast to Southwest this morning and it continues. Only temps in low 60’s when a rain band comes through. Absolutely heavenly.

Nice cooldown next week w highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s.

 

Btw: very active Hurricane Season so far. Last time it was this busy was back in 2005. In fact, it was so stirring during that timeframe that they ended up using all names and had to use the "Greek" names to continue naming tropical systems.

Happy Friday!  #TGIF  What a way to start off a fantastic morning as the weather is cooperating.  Today will be the first BN day in a long time around these parts.  It's a rather cool 64F/62F as the sun rises this morning.  Some very beautiful colors are being immersed as the light reflects off of the clouds.

It's been a very wet past few days across the KC area and parts of the MW region....today's rains will likely add to the surplus of precip this region has seen.  Drought conditions will have improved nicely.  Now, it's the eastern corn belt regions turn to get wet from our "summer time" cutter.

Drought keeps expanding in Iowa and according to the maps it is dryer in CR. then my area. That may be true except not for right where I live! Last Sunday 2 miles north of me got around 1.70" and 1 mile north 1.20" while I had less than 1/2". Also decent showers a few miles south Wed. evening.

Waking up to a bit of muggyness this morning. Hoping I get hit by heavy rain later this evening as this will be my last chance at heavy rain till next weekend. I don't NEED it like areas West and South of me, but I'd like to keep things green up here. I also might flirt with 90 today before I look to have possibly 5-6 straight days in the 70s. Currently 71/62*F.

The clouds give off a nice "fire" vibe to the sunset.

That's a wrap!  July ended up being the 4th warmest on record here in Chicago with an average temp of 79.3F.  There were a total of 12 90F+ days along with 70% of possible sunshine.  That lead us to a drier than normal month with only 2.55" of precip (-1.55" BN).

FAR was above normal in both temps and precip for July.
