July 2023 Observations and Discussion


Recommended Posts

Steady rain with occasional thunder right now it's just what the Dr ordered.  We have the generator running our appliances and since we are avid campers this is like spending the weekend in the Ozarks but without the banjos!  Current temperature is a comfy 70 degrees.

Texas weather is a broken record.   

106/107 for the highs this coming week.  Texans are pretty resolved to hot summers but occasionally Mother Nature likes to push the limits.   With no break to gather some rest from this…

Well, we’re going to be a cranky group.  
Wouldn’t have a Tropical Storm on ya, would you? 😄

8:20 and Temp is 101*.  

The crazy thing about it is it actually feels cool from the 106 we had this afternoon.   You can actually feel it.  

I’m seriously ready for some good news down here. 😊

Flood Watch in effect 1 county to my east, with short range models predicting ridiculous rain totals over central MO.  Some short range models and the 18z Euro have shifted the heaviest totals west towards my place.  Hopefully if we get the storms they bring a little less wind than last night, we gotn our power restored around 6 this evening.

99F here today after a 101F yesterday. Dew point staying elevated in the upper 60s to low 70s so the feels like is a bit higher. All model guidance really cranking it up the next few days, probably a bit too much, but I could see 105F or so here by Wednesday.

For better or worse welcome to August. The official H/L yesterday at Grand Rapids was 81/56 there was no rain fall the sun was out 59% of the possible time. There was a lot of smoke that gave the sky a milky look. There were just 4 CDD’s and the highest wind gust was 19MPH out of the west. We start the downward trend on average temperatures today and the average H/L is now 82/63 The record high for today is 98 set in 1988 and the record low of 48 was set in 1947. The record rain fall amount of 1.96” fell in 1909. Last year the H/L was 83/68.

With a red moon caused by a lot of smoke in the sky the overnight low here was 56. The current temperature is 57 wind a milky white sky. The week ahead looks to have temperatures near average with some small chances of rain.

Yep, peak nastiness this week. Probably some relief up here next weekend. I hope some of it spills down your way.

We’re in the thick of it my friend.  
Yes, it’s the heat but the toll on everything becomes a battle to maintain life and wellbeing.  
It’s not my first sun-dance but they never get mundane.  
Hope you’re hanging in there. I think this next week is the last of the worst too.  
Warming up my rain dance!!

Super Moons this year. 
In 2024, we will have four full supermoons in a row on Aug. 19, Sept. 18, Oct. 17 and Nov. 15.

Speaking in terms of astrology, today marks the 1st day of the Lions Gate opening.  8/1- 8/8 is a huge portal opening of abundance!  Todays Full Moon sparks it right open and 8/8 is the big day.

We finished July at just slightly above normal temperature wise at both KMQS Coatesville Airport (+0.4) and at East Nantmeal (+0.3).
Beautiful weather continues the next couple of days to start August with high temps both days remaining in the 70's. We stay cool on Thursday but rain chances increase by Thursday late day. Early peek at the weekend looks nice with continued temps running slightly below levels for early August in Chester County,
Records for Today: High 98 (2002) / Low 47 (1895) / Rain 1.57" (1973)

From a temperature perspective, this meteorological summer has been the poster child for average and unremarkable for Chicago.  June finished +0.2 and July finished +0.3.  Also, the highest maximum temperature at ORD so far is "only" 93.

July total rainfall here was 3.48" (-1.02") with most of it falling on the 12th. My yearly precipitation to the end of July is approximately 6.28" below my own 30 year (1990- 2019) average. I should probably go by my most recent 30 years of data as recent summers were dryer, which would change anomalies a little, but I don't have the numbers yet. 

Low temperature for the month was a cool 51° and the high a scorching 98°!
