I'm still hopeful we'll have some spring but I'm not holding my breath. Looking at the 10 day forecast, we might finally consistently get up into the mid 60s by the end of the weekend. In other news, the cool, very wet weather has done wonders for my lawn and gardens. Everything is looking particularly lush!I'm sure that spring will eventually arrive in Metro Detroit.
Tornado season here. We had a couple hits in the region yesterday, just EF1s, so no big deal, just some downed trees. There are more in the area today, north of us. No immediate danger for me.
Frost? Geez. There's a 50-50 chance we break 90 for a couple of hours this afternoon.We had a nice spring this past weekend. We've been back to fall for the past few days though with highs in the 50s yesterday and today. I think there was frost on the pumpkins this morning.
It's been pretty pleasant here so far this spring but really sort of cool. I saw in the newspaper this this is the longest into the season we've gone without yet hitting 80º but we might flirt with it on Thursday. That said, by Sunday and Monday we'll be back to morning lows in the upper 40s and low 50s.Frost? Geez. There's a 50-50 chance we break 90 for a couple of hours this afternoon.
We're going to be down in Savannah next Wednesday - Saturday - highs on Wednesday and Thursday are predicted to be 98...Out of curiosity, I regularly check the weather in my old stomping grounds of Jacksonville, NC and they've been having temps consistently in the upper 80s and lower 90s over the past couple of weeks. That seems pretty hot this early for them but it does sort of make me miss it. My wife doesn't care for it, but I love the heat and humidity.
Yeah, we haven't even come close to wanting to use the AC yet and it's already Memorial Day weekend. We did, however, leave the heat on a bit longer than usual.One benefit of this cool spring: We have yet to turn on the AC at all and it's pretty darn comfortable sleeping weather at night. Usually by now we've been using the AC for the past week or so, at least during the hottest part of the afternoon.
And according to Nest, we've only run the furnace for 2 hours total in the last 2 weeks and for 10 hours for all of May so far.
No.We'd welcome some warmer weather and sunshine. Maybe you can send a bit of your heat north to the Great Lakes?
Depending on the location's proximity to mine, I take tornado warnings deadly serious. I think what happened was years ago tornado prediction tools were not very sophisticated or accurate and so we ended up with a large number of tornado watches that amounted to nothing. Over time I would guess the public habituated to the idea that watches were background noise largely to be ignored and this has carried over to warnings as well.Tornado warnings are meant to save lives. Why do some people roll their eyes?
How do/would you react when your local weatherman interrupts a show with a Tornado Warning ?
Wow. We probably got a little less that 2" locally over the entirety of the weekend. Temperature-wise it's looking nice and mild for this week, with the lows dipping back into the mid-50s Wednesday night.Over 7.5" of rain this weekend. A few roads were washed over and school is on a 2-hour delay this morning.
The mountains had it worse with over 13" of rain, flash floods, & road closures.
I always love the dry heat comment. Especially watching out of staters do things like:But it's a DRY heat that makes it feel comfortable.
I always love the dry heat comment. Especially watching out of staters do things like:
- Walk out of the airport in air so hot and dry they can't breathe for a second.
- Touch a steering wheel that sat in the dry heat for a few hours or literally burn their hands on the seat belt buckle.
- Complain about the heat without adding, but it's a dry heat.
