I’m not officially in a heat advisory, but it feels the worst of any day this week. No wind and it just seems like you can’t breathe doing any work outside. Still seeing heat index between 102-107. They say dews in the 50’s Sunday. I’ll hope they’re correct.

Happy Friday!  It's 5:55am as I write this and the sun rose today at 5:43am local time.  It's a wonderful start to the morning with an air temp of 66F and a very comfy DP 56F.  My goodness, does it feel good to have the windows open and let in the refreshing air.  I woke up in the middle of the night from the gusty NNE winds off the lake.  Today is going to be a wonderful day...#manifest

 

 

 

 

Yes it feels worlds different here than yesterday! 😃A breeze picked up late last evening and began cooling it off.

It's currently 90 with a heat index of 101, the dew point is 75 down a couple of notches from yesterday but still miserable and no breeze today.

Here it took all day to cool off after the frontal passage which is common during summer.

woke up to a surprise tstorm this morning and a couple of the loudest booms I've heard in a long time from my house. Absolutely dumped rain for a while. That's a good thing, bc I'm not too sure how much we will end up getting from tonight's rains based on model trends.

Received 1.37" of rain in about an hour and a half. These cells weren't very big either, so a lot of town missed out unfortunately.

I had noticed scattered cells heading right for Omaha.

I noticed that soupy air and a warm front near your area.

Hot this weekend. 100* Highs.  
But Monday we have front move through with rain and a high of 92*.  
That should feel like a cool front.  I’m ready for a change.

Hello from Pascagoula, MS. Right on the gulf. Was in New Orleans last night. Went down to Bourbon Street! Was in TX for a week prior to that. Was in Brownsville right on the border. Actually saw part of the border wall. 

Anyway, its been sunny and mid to upper 90s everyday. And humid, except Amarillo was more of a dry heat. Looks like you guys are baking back at home as well. Been a hot summer.

I return home next Tuesday. Looking forward to fall!

We've been cloudy and in the low 70s all afternoon.  It's great.  It just began to sprinkle, too, the first drops of rain in over two weeks.  Unfortunately, we likely won't get much more than sprinkles out of this.  Models continue to show very little, if any, rain over the next 7-10 days.

My brother in Shawnee KS just texted me that at 5 pm the heat index was 121. Yikes. 

Getting a torrential downpour right now and its still 92 with a heat index of 107. I may receive an inch before it ends.

Always love a good satellite pic of CB's blocking out the sunlight on the east side.

That’s amazing. I was just going to post a similar visible satellite image. Yeah it’s nice when the sun is lower and that’s when I like checking it. 
BTW, here’s the one I was looking at. Can see the cell that was over Clinton.

Unreal, getting missed again in Cedar Rapids. It just seems like we can't even get a thunderstorm or let alone, heavy rain! 

It also seems like we can't go one summer without having a drought here, the last time we weren't in a drought I believe was way back in the summer of 2014. I am not sure why it can't just rain here.

If anything would develop I think it’d be very isolated. Very little on the radar. Has a huge bust potential imo. 

I'd call it a bust. Good call.

That was Ottumwa  2012 to 2017..  repeatedly  dry. Severe 3 summers.  2014 and 2016  not too dry. But since Aug 2018 we now have been on a good roll here!  Of past 36 months only 4  were below avg precip! Thats at my home, but based on Ottumwa  monthly averages.  Dry summers will return! They always do.

I got a few sprinkles last evening.  0.58" will be my final July total.  ☹️  It's easily my driest July since I began to keep records fifteen years ago.

Edit:  I forgot there is a slight chance of a shower later this evening, so the 0.58" is not final for sure.

In other news, this is pretty interesting to see the military use our highway system to land aircraft.

That should have been done regularly in the past. Locating stretches of highway without overpasses and preparing for emergencies at home.  
awesome.

It was storming hard enough around 6:30 this morning that it woke me up and I sleep like a rock. Only 0.71" at the airport, not sure how much in SE Lincoln.

Ended up at 1.48” last night so 2.85” total the last 48 hours. Had a couple lightning strikes that made the power flash too.

Somehow ended up with 6.2” of rain this month and the grass was still turning brown before this last event.

from the comments ( I knew this but someone writes better than I can)-

about landing on freeways--- interstate system was designed for that purpose- has to be long enough section every so far distance to land military planes (at the time) --

This is still standard procedure in Sweden. And for those who actually remembered their US history, these types of operations were used by the Germans in 1944-45. When General Eisenhower saw how the road system the Germans had built, he decided to do the same for the US when he was President, the interstate freeways. They were originally built to be able to rapidly move military items including operating airplanes on some of the long straight stretches in case of invasion.

The U.S. Federal Interstate system was specifically DESIGNED to use as runways in the event of war or other major disaster. The requirement was that ONE mile of every 5 was supposed to be straight enough to use as a runway, without overpasses or power lines. Over the years there may have been some compromises made, but then the system was proposed and laid out, those were the original requirements.

ended up with 1.75". 2.91 at the DSM.

Suddenly July at DSM saw 5.86". Normal is 3.82" so 150% above normal.

Gonna finish July at about 60% of normal precip. My year to date precip is about 50% of normal. Meanwhile, the same areas south of me that aren't even in a drought got multiple rounds of thunderstorms over the past week. Yay for them I guess.
