What's the weather like where you're at?

Recommended Posts

looks like a slice of heaven, @dtel

 

 Bluebird skies this AM.

Sounds like an oxymoron... sunny and warm enough to rain. That's how it works, though. Some popcorn cumulus clouds are getting ideas now. I  love the monsoon season. We see a lot more rain than we get. Kind of gambler's rush when it actually happens.

Mullet from clear water is delicious.

 

Mullet from muddy water is trash fish.

East coast Florida mullet while edible has a short shelf life. Typically  black mullet from the big bend and farther south in the gulf, have been smoked or fried for generations. Before that, the native people. It was an industry at the mouth of the Suwannee around 1860. Sure there are some I would not eat...

82 degrees when I left for work this morning.  95% humidity.  It's like walking through a clear fog.

Hope all the folks in Louisiana are ok.  We've actually had tornado warnings for Calgary and tornado sightings further north.  Crazy.  Hoping for a few days of mid/high 70's F and no rain!  Please stop the rain.

We are safe. Boucoup rain, three full days of it off and on. I recorded 3.2" @ my house (three day collection), which is pretty low considering. I'm sure some areas saw 6+ inches collectively. This morning since sunrise is the first four + hours of zero rain @ my residence. Our local Lake Ponchartrain rose three feet from the storm surge itself. Lots of street flooding in some areas.

 

I have not heard a single death reported on the local tv news in southern Louisiana attributed to Hurricane Barry, which is great news. Thankfully Barry barely made hurricane status/intensity before making landfall.

In  Arizona ,  95% of the rain does not make to the ground , evaporates  before  hitting .

We are in monsoon  season , soon the rains will start and cool the deserts , then the deserts will green up for a while 

 

Where I live , it was   68 degrees  this morning 

In Phoenix , 89 degrees  this morning  reaching a high if 114 degrees today , I'd hate to work outside in that heat

Watching the rain evaporate halfway down while at the top of South Mountain was always fascinating to me.  I miss living in AZ sometimes.

I'll be driving through Louisiana on I-10 and I-12 around supper time today.  I haven't seen any closures as of yet.  Hopefully more of the bands will be gone by then.

I think you'll be fine. I just checked the LA interstate system for closures in south LA.........nada. The center of the Barry remnant is near Little Rock, AR now.

we got some yesterday

topped out around 102`, then rained.  I think it made it back to 80` before the sun went down ... and it cooled off for the evening.

104 on the southside after lunchtime and though I don't trust the post 80s thermometer we have, two sites at weatherunderground nearby had 102 listed two hours later.

 

So it's sunny, muggy and hot like summer around here today.

 threatening rain. it is the monsoon....

  see it!

feel it?

 

"monsoon" is no guarantee of rain. Some years you could set your watch by the rain. 

Might be my memory glossing over stuff, too

I remember a whole year without rain here once, with one hell of a heatwave >95 for three months >100 for a week and a half. I think it was `86. I watered the trees and bushes slowly... lawn got burned up. We'd have dark cloudy days with lightning and thunder sometimes but not a speck of rain for over a year that time.

I remember some lean years. Once, the mesquites got leaves and flowers, then dropped everything. Took care of business and went dormant ...in July

 

I have to wonder what constitutes drought in a desert? That's kinda the definition of desert.

is there a such thing as weather or is that just something that the media wants us to believe?

The media wouldn’t over-dramatize would it?

 

Only 86 here today but 98 this weekend  with heat indices over110. Do you southerners have heat index ratings,  or you just deal with the actual temp?

Yes they have it but I just go by temp, when they say 95 degrees it's hot it feels no different if they call it 125. 

The bad part is 95 or anything around it is one thing, walk out into the sun where they do not measure and see how it feels.:sad:

 

Instead of they sissy heat index thing, why not use out in the sun temperatures, it would be much more accurate as to how it feels outside. The "heat index" is not going to burn your hand if you leave it on the hood of your car.
