We've had some crazy weather lately. Last weekend, on Saturday, we had strange clouds and snow qualls, then sun, then strange clouds and snow squalls, then sun, and tons of wind. On Sunday, the day started off in the 20s in the morning and it was 75 by 5pm. This week, it's been in the 40s and rainy. Gotta love Chicago weather! Not. :not:

Saturday was just bizarre. Friday was actually similar but it was rain instead of snow, but the snow made it more dramatic.

Seems like February was about 10-15 degrees warmer on average than April has been so far. It's snowed almost every day this past week.

While watching the news this morning, they said that the temps have been about 12º below average over the past 30 days, at least on this side of the state. We should be close to 70º by Sunday though, so that will be a welcome change.

What's going on up there LP?

The weather in Maine has gone all cra-cra.

Meteor flies across the sky and 4" of snow in mid-May.

After temps in the upper 80s the past two weeks, some storms rolled through the area on Sunday and our highs have been down in the 60s since then. This morning it was 45º when I woke up. It's definitely refreshing, but crisp. Tomorrow temps are supposed to get back into the 70s and then in the 90s by the Saturday. Maybe Saturday will be a day for the beach.

Parts of the UP had a frost advisory last night.

On Sunday, there is some speculation that it may hit triple digits for the first time this year. We will be at the beach.

When I left work yesterday the car temp said 101 (1st triple digits of the year). After I was driving a few blocks it cooled down to 98. AAHHH!

The high this weekend is supposed to be 83. It's gonna feel like 75 after more than a week of mid 90s.

The car temp gauge hit triple digits for first time yesterday with humidity. We are also having our first heat advisory. It's mid June. Enjoy your second Southern summer Mskiis.

It's the first day of summer and will be 90º+ today. My wife and daughters are sitting on the beach. I really should have taken the day off to join them, it will be great beach weather today.

Yesterday was sunny and 85-86. A cold front rolled through with some thunder bumpers last night and dropped the overnight temps into the low 60s and upper 50s. Today will be sunny and upper 70s.

Sounds like here, just about 5º cooler all around. Today sounds looks like it's going to be a gorgeous day.

We had our first measurable rain in sometime last night. It really hasn't been too terribly hot this May and June (save for a few days here and there) but it has been DRY!!! It's only July 1st and my front yard is already a nice crisp brown. I can only imagine how it will look come the middle of August! Thankfully, my backyard has enough shade that it stays pretty green all summer long other than a few random small spots.

I think this fall I'm going to have a couple large deciduous trees installed at each corner of the front yard so that I can eventually get a bit more shade out there too.

Raining now here in NE OH, but looks to be great summer weather for my Northern Michigan vacation over the holiday.

Some welcome cool weather moved in last night and it was 70 and foggy on the drive in this morning.

You know I bet we get maybe a half dozen foggy days a year. And usually the fog has burned off by mid-morning.

^ The temps were about the same over on this side of the state this morning but there was no fog and the humidity was brutal! I went for a run at 5:30 a.m. and the thermometer said 68º but it was so muggy that I was just drenched in sweat after about a mile. It's supposed to be in the 90s again today but then cool down here tomorrow. They keep forecasting rain for us but we don't get it (it keeps passing a bit to the south or a bit to the north). Most of this side of the state is now officially in a drought.

It's been dry enough over here that more than a few communities canceled their fireworks displays this past week.

Hot, Humid & chance of Rain.







it's the daily rinse repeat cycle now

Yep - the current fifteen day forecast for Hotlanta: highs in the low to mid 90s, lows in the 70s, only variations are the rain chance percentages on a given day.

How about a check in from the Grand Rapids Cyburbians. My old 'hood (just south of Wyoming Rodgers HS) got hit pretty bad.
