Yadda Yadda Storms Yadda Yadda Yadda

More storms are plowing through NW Ohio and SE Michigan. The tornado sirens went off a short while ago. Certainly not in the "all clear" zone because a look at the weather radar shows a long line of storms pushing toward Swanton (and points east and southeast), Heavy rain, hail, strong winds, more possible tornadoes......what a summer we are having! I checked the radar at 10:00 PM. Fugly, real fugly. :-c

No doubt, I will be up for awhile, making sure I don't see the wicked witch of the west riding her bicycle past my window. Oh my!

More heat and humidity on Saturday....and it finally drops to the lower 80F range on Sunday. Back into the 90F+ range by mid-week. Double oh my!

EDIT: I hate my electric bill.

Yeah, when hurricanes hit down here, everyone piles on about how nobody should live where hurricanes hit (don't forget Lonk Island; but they do). But when MIlwaukee streets are under 5 feet of water nobody says anything... sheesh, it's such a double standard.

It's been quite a hot summer here in NJ as compared to last summer when it rained most of the time. This year I have to pay the electric bill myself rather than mooching off the university. I hope it will cool down soon.

We had quite a bit of rainfall over the weekend, accompanied by lots of thunder and lightning. Many areas in the northwest suburbs of Chicago picked up between 5 and 7 inches of rain since Friday.

The grass is finally green again and everyone was out cutting their lawns today, after about a 2-3 week dry spell.

It was under 100 on Saturday, under 90 on Sunday and under 100 on Monday. This stretch of weather has been great for July-August. We'll be back in the oven by the end of the week-- 110 again.

C'mon monsoon, we need more thunderstorms!

It is so humid out there. Temps in the mid 80s, dewpoints in the mid 70s, with a heat index in the mid 90s. Yet it's so overcast out there, that you wouldn't even think it would be that hot and humid.

We've been getting our fair share of rain lately. Just got about 2 inches last night, with many areas getting even more.

Also, according to the NWS, the water temperature in Lake Michigan was 80 degrees on Sunday, the warmest it's been since 2001. The warmest temperature ever recorded in Lake Michigan was 81 in 1995.

There was a 10% chance of rain today and at the end of my lunch there was one tiny gray cloud in the sky above my topless and doorless Jeep. I just looked out the window here in my building and it looks like monsoon season has struck out of nowhere.

Oh well. At least the weather radar shows that the sun should be back out in about 30 minutes so that should give my seat time to dry out before I drive home.

The streak has finally broken!

Up until today, for the past 46 days, the high temperature in Chicago has been at or above 80 degrees, the longest in recorded meteorological history in the city.

Today, the temperature hovered between the upper 60s and lower 70s. It was nice. Yesterday was nicer though, since it was sunny. Today it was cloudy. But I'll take it.

August so far

Over 100 every day

And it's going to continue through next week as well. Good thing I decided to pass on doing the flowerbeds this year. The 2+ weeks without rain would be the death of anything I actually wanted in the beds.

We have the "remnants" as the weather guys call it, of T.D. #5, about to rotate over us for the third time in what, a week and a half? The storm that won't die!

Yep. This has been locally the hottest summer ever (at least as long as they have been keeping meteorological records).

A very heavy downpour woke us this morning - lots of rain with ligthening and thunder. The kid slept through it.

Several creeks are coming out of their banks and it was a slow go coming into work. I stopped to get gas and couldn't use the credit card because their satelitte connection was down.

Hit 107 today. You can't imagine how good the mid 90's feel after 3 or 4 weeks of 100 plus!

It's a lovely 65F with a damp breeze blowing. All the windows are open and I will sleep well tonight.

Don't worry - we'll probably have a couple of days in the 80s and 90s in mid-September. :r:

Record Stretch of Warmth but also a Record Stretch of No Real Heat. So says the NWS Chicago office.

As stated earlier, a new record for most 80 degree days was set (46 days in a row were 80 or above this summer), and a record number of consecutive 79+ degree days continues (currently 54 days of 79+ degree whether; the previous record was 43 days back in 1955).

However, we haven't had a real heat wave this summer. The mercury has not reached 95 degrees since August 2006. This is the longest stretch of days in Chicago weather history that no 95+ degree days have been recorded (1,482 days and counting). The previous record was back in 1902-05.

Fall arrived on the Florida panhandle. Our lows this morning were in the low 70's. I'm taking tomorrow afternoon off to enjoy low 90's temps by the pool. :h: :wine:

HEADLINE: Weather Officials: Two Tornadoes Swept Through NYC
http://brooklyn.ny1.com/content/top...er-officials--two-tornadoes-swept-through-nyc

HIGHLIGHT:
The National Weather Service said that the first tornado touched down in Park Slope, Brooklyn with winds of 80 mph after 5 p.m. Thursday and traveled two miles northeast.

The second tornado touched down about two-and-a-half miles south of Flushing, Queens and traveled north to Bayside with winds of up to 100 mph, before lifting over the waters. Middle Village and Forest Hills, Queens were the neighborhoods hit hardest.
