If we get the big storms tonight that they are predicting, we might be under water. I’m waiting until the torrential rain stops to check the gauge. This adds to the 1.10” from yesterday. 

WPC thinking like you are.

A pretty progressive and generally near normal temperature pattern looks to continue over the next week. Humidity will be a bit higher then the last couple days but still below normal temps. Rain chances increase tomorrow into the evening but then another beautiful weekend with temps rising to slightly above normal on Sunday before another cold front swings through on Monday drop us back to normal to slightly below.
Records for today: High 96 (1957) / Low 48 (1964) / Rain 1.36" (1898)

We’ll see 106* briefly today.  Interesting experience in survival.  Glad it doesn’t do this very often.  
Looking forward to Fall. 🤠👍🍁🍂

Looks like an exciting weather day Sunday for Illinois and Indiana.

 
SUNDAY sure is looking significant for severe weather and #tornado potential across IL/IN. I will likely have to reactivate storm chase mode for this setup. Monday also looks interesting in OH/PA. August looks nuts!

Euro with some solid rain totals forecast for the weekend.  Hope we get some here.

Unfortunately, models are drying up for our area.  Some op models now have little rain here.  The EPS is down to a half inch.  The problem is the initial weak waves are now going south, and then the main wave pushes through too early Sunday.

The official H/L yesterday was 85/63. Officially there was no rain fall, here in MBY I recorded 0.01” of rain. There was 79% of possible sunshine the highest wind gust was 26MPH out of the west. For today the average H/L is 82/63 the record high of 96 was set in 1988 the record low was a chilly 42 in 1894 in Lansing it was a colder 37 on that date. The record rain fall amounted is 2.12” in 1905. Last year the H/L was 86/70 with a trace of rain fall.

Today and tomorrow at this time look to be chamber of commerce type days with lots of sun and highs in the low 80’s and lows in the low to mid 60’s. Come Sunday that looks to change as we have a chance of some rain that could be heavy. Next week looks to be a little cooler than average with several chances of showers.

Off and on rain has added up to .60 in the last 24hrs.  Its been great for the lawns along with the cloudy humid weather, there should be a good chance for some heavy rain this evening and then a better chance Saturday night along with some severe weather.  I'll be headed into the Ozarks for a float trip this weekend on the Current River near Eminence, MO. the weather looks to be ok, hope we can dodge the storms during the day Sat.

This thing just drones on and on affecting much of this forum. The south central area remains under the gun. 
Check out the article in the climate forum posted yesterday on potential cause of the heat. It’s certainly heightened this stubborn system.

Following clouds today and showers tonight It looks like a great weekend ahead across the area. Sunshine low humidity and temps in the low to mid-80's should make for a near perfect summer weekend! Our next chance of showers following this evening looks to be Monday night before another stretch of pleasant near normal days kick in again for most of next week.
Records for today: High 98 (1944) / Low 47 (1951) / Rain 5.83" (2020)

We’ll see 104/5 today.  
However, in Arkansas the taco party went south when the nacho cheese took a detour.

It’s 78F/58F with a wind off the lake.  About as perfect of a Friday night you can ask for in Aug.  When those first autumn fronts make it down by you, you’re gonna have to celebrate one way or another!  I can’t imagine living in that heat and humidity for weeks on end.

Drought conditions have improve for much of Missouri but that stubborn band of D3 that runs through mby has been tough to break.  The next few days might crack it.

The drought has worsened to the severe category again in my area after being in the moderate rating for a few weeks. Was rated severe earlier in July also. 

About all the models are showing a band of heavy rain cross southern Iowa/northern Missouri tonight. I might get the northern edge. I wish it would be further north.

The low passing by far southeast Iowa really dumped a bucket overnight.  Local weather stations in the Keokuk to Burlington area have gotten 4-8 inches.

Well this sys literally  dumped  inches west south and east of me!!!  And tues nites dumped  torrential  rains west and south of me.  In 2023 Ive recorded just one rain over 1 inch, in march!!! Ridiculous.  Pond keeps dropping and creeks bone dry for months.   But Ive gotten  alot of crumbs. In past week 1 inch has rained on 5 occasions. So things are growing  good.

How chilly has it been? Well 19 of the last 22 days have featured below average temperatures here in Western Chester County. This weekend we should see temps averaging close to normal. Shower chances increase Sunday night through early Tuesday but most days except Monday this week should feature plenty of sunshine.
Records for today: High 99 (1930) / Low 45 (1951) / Rain 1.41" (1987)

In truth it’s manageable with a/c, however the air pressure and stagnation get to you.  I’ve done this all my life so what doesn’t kill ya…..Native Texans are a breed of their own I guess.

The first beautiful day in the 80’s I will celebrate with an “adult beverage” on the patio!!! 😊 Promise!   High 106/7 today.

Sun/Monday are now two days in a row of Slight Risks shading my area. 

We started off the month a tad quiet and with cooler highs as well.

Overnight afd from LOT actually mentioned that it had some loose tropical characteristics.

Upper-air
plots and soundings indicate that the wave has gained a loosely
warm-core response in the lower half of the troposphere, with low-

The new Euro is not in yet, but all other models have abandoned southern Wisconsin.  The swath of heavy rain now tracks from nw through ec/se Iowa and then turns east.  The NAM and 3kNAM actually miss me southwest.
