    We bang again around here. This pattern has been relentless ,especially across the interior.

    August dawgs are barking ... but it looks like the month may split

    Only about .25 or so here all weekend here. Not complaining at all. Sun poked through and was able to get yardwork done which hasn't been easy this summer.

    Storms do finally seem to be weakening now but that tweet gave the impression we would be in the clear by 8 or 9 at the latest. Anyways off to bed thankfully no power, flooding issues here now.

    Oops. Box's tweet around 5 P.M. NWS Boston‏Verified account @NWSBoston 5h5 hours ago More [Evening Update] given temperatures are not rapidly (less than 6C/KM) decreasing with height aloft & vertical wind shear is weak (less than 20 kt), #thunderstorms will weaken with sunset and NOT persist overnight. Thus drying trend as the evening progresses. #MA #RI #CT

    Best lightning for me in many, many years. So many close strikes earlier, house rattling piercing type thunder and just prolific lightning both in cloud and cloud to ground. Power off an on several times. It's been one hell of a stormy night.

    Several Reports of trees and wires down around town even a tree onto a house. Looks like the worst was a bit east and south of here. Impressive gust front and lighting/downpours for sure.

    Not severe but a darn good storm here. 40 mph winds with torrential rain and vivid lightning.

    July Doldrums - Summer in full effect Pattern and Model Discussion

    No doubt about that. I was up in the Tamarack region of Maine last week and what was considered tropical humidity by the local folks just didn't meet my standard of oppressive. Many days were 78-83 during the day and 66-70 at night. 68-71 dews were bad but when dews are consistently hitting 73-77 down here with during surges of tropical air it just didn't feel as oppressive and there was always a breeze by the lake where we were located.

    July Doldrums - Summer in full effect Pattern and Model Discussion

    I live in Death Valley and that was a notable, very significant heatwave but not quite top end historic I never hit 100 with 99 and 96 my two hottest days. I remember hitting 100 3 days in a row in a heat wave when I was younger. Several days were in the low-mid 90's with a pretty good south wind that kept the full atmosphere temp from being realized. Dews were impressive, hit 77-78 a couple of times and spent many hours above 70. Definitely one memorable hot stretch and dews were top shelf material but the S flow kept this from being what it could have been in the temperature department. s

    Maybe NWS just holds off on the heat warnings if the coverage area is isolated. Vast majority of the CWA is at advisory levels including much of the counties that Keene ,Orange, and Westfield are located in.

    Hit 99 here. My phone as well as another poster reported a high of 100 in parts of Enfield. Absolute inferno with dews running 73-76 during early afternoon. Went to my mother in laws in East Windsor where it was 98/75 and the pool was 85 degrees. Felt like swimming in the Gulf of Mexico.
