    High gas prices and low temperatures. Highs around here have been in the high 70s and low 80s. It's a little bit warmer than normal, but we seem to be missing out on the heat wave that's got everybody else sweating.

    I've known some elderly who actually like hot, stuffy environs.

    Sounds like a cool front will pass through tonight with possible rain. Temps tomorrow only in the upper 80's!

    I don't mind the heat, but it would be nice to get some rain.

    Surprise, surprise it's been in the low 100s to about 115 since May. Although July 4th was the coolest July 4th in over 80 years. It was 91. The monsoon moisture has been keeping the temps down a couple degrees in the day and up a couple at night. Those areas that have received rain have gotten inches. Those without have sprinkles. I've basically had sprinkles at my house

    We're in the middle of a very strong thunderstorm; looks like we may be in and out of them for hours. Four warnings have come in on the weather radio in an hour.

    High 80's here today, and very humid. We had a 40% chance of rain, but it was sunny by the pool, so we just had to split a pitcher of margaritas!

    It's been a beautiful day here, lower 80s with a nice breeze and little humidity. Nice after this crazy run of heat and thunderstorms.

    Well, we've had a break in the hot, dry weather here in WNY. The high heat ended Wednesday, but we didn't get many thunderstorms as predicted. It started raining on Thursday, quite heavily in some places, and then on Friday we got a general rain that lasted most of the day. This was the first all-day rain I can remember since probably some time in May.

    Friday temps were in the 60s, and those persisted into most of Saturday. By the time it finally hit 70, the wind had kicked up and it was definitely sweatshirt weather. Today forecast to be in the low 80s with a stiff breeze from the southwest and a 30% chance of thunderstorms.

    We're in the middle of a thunderstorm that you don't see coming, it just pops up right over you. Tremendous thunder and lightning, hitting extremely close to us, and very heavy rain. Luckily, it's not a big storm, so should go thru soon.

    Guess I spoke too soon. Another intense storm formed right behind the first one, so we've had over 90 minutes of heavy, heavy storms. Power went off, then cable/internet. And in the middle of it, RJ, who freaks out about the lightning, was talking about taking a long pole with METAL on the end to rake out the storm drain out front!

    Hope it's all over before it's time to grill those baby backs for dinner.

    Overall its been a mild summer here, but today we are totally socked in with fog and its cold Its nearly lunchtime and its only 61 degrees outside. I feel a little sorry for the tourists, but I guess the local stores can sell some jackets and pullovers. (Just a little sorry, they're still on vacation and I'm not.)

    We've had some intense storms during the past week that have caused street flooding. I sat out a storm in a convenience store parking lot today, high on a hill, and had to wait for the stream that was flooding the four lane road to subside and stay in its banks. I was one of the few who chose to stay put; most others continued to drive through the water. They couldn't see how full and fast the stream was, nor could they see the spot where the flow was going over the bank and back into the stream. Potentially deadly.

    Less than a year ago, a woman and her 3 kids, and and elderly woman, drowned when a street in Pittsburgh flooded. How soon people forget.

    Looks like a large swath of the country, from JNA to Hilldweller, is in the cross-hairs for rough weather today. I've got a crew coming to do some work at my house this afternoon (hauling away the remains of my former deck) and I hope they can get it done before the weather comes on. Be careful out there, folks!

    Yet another severe thunderstorm moving into our area. It's so dark outside that the streetlights have come on at 8:45 a.m.

    We've had bada$$ storms 3 of the last 4 days.

    It looks like the drought in SW NYS has broken. We got 2+ inches of rain (nice soaking/all day long rains not gully washers) in most of the area in the last ten days and temps have dropped down to the upper 70s/low 80s where they belong. The extended forecast shows more of the same with scattered thunderstorms over the weekend.

    Just got the electric bill for the first time at the new house. Being that this house is twice as large as my last house, and with how hot it has been, it wasn't too bad of a hit to the pocket book.

    July was a rather cool month. Rarely got over 110. The monsoon has been active everywhere but the 10 square miles surrounding my neighborhood. Most areas in Phoenix have gotten around an inch, at my house we got about a tenth of an inch.
