I checked the NWS and saw the plains, midwest and deep south stewing in horrible heat humidity. Makes me happy that today's 107 will feel like 97 here in AZ.

It's been cloudy and cool all week. Temps in the 60s, but feels much colder with the lack of sunshine. So depressing. So much for global warming
I think it's from this air-mass in Canada and the Northeast that keeps creating clouds in the Midwest. Canada can keep their frickin' clouds, as far as I'm concerned.
Hey, I want to thank my Canuckistanian friends for their generosity. I LOVE this weather!! This is the best import from Canada since ... well, Neill Young, I guess.

Hey Gedunker - really how bad was the rain and resulting flooding ? :-c:-o
We got part of that same storm system this morning. Flew in with gusts up to 80 mph and then was over by 11:30. Tons of tree branches down and I even saw a tree on a side street that broke off and crushed a car!We got 6" in 90 minutes during rush hour this morning, mixed with winds in excess of 60mph, and dangerous lightning. Another 1.5" fell mid-afternoon. More, and thankfully lighter rain expected this evening. After already getting more than 15" in the last two months, the ground is saturated and couldn't handle the downpour. Flooding is extreme throughout the Lou Metro/southern Indiana.
It could be worse: I've got a BZA meeting that's still on as scheduled tonight.
Good sleeping temps with the windows open.
Sunday 10 PM - 64, 6 AM - 56
Saturday 10 PM - 67, 6 AM - 60
Forecast for the next couple of nights is high 50's.
Even though the steady rain is splashing against my computer desk window, NW Ohio has been relatively dry and quite sunny for most of the summer of 2009. All summer long it seemed that we would have six or seven sunny days, followed by a cloudy day, followed by a rainy day. And the same thing would start again.
The farmers love it because the rain seems to come just-in-the-soybean-nick-of-time. I have never seen our grass this tall and this green in early September. Most summers around these parts include a good number of cloudy days. Not so this year.
And the temperatures have been mild. Just the way I like it. Ahh, hah.
