  1. Only 0.16” of rain yesterday. Since June 1st only 27% of average precipitation has accumulated.
  2. It was still 90F with a dew point of 75F in Minneapolis as of 9:50pm. Crazy stuff. 2nd summer in a row here with severe drought. Plants and some trees that aren’t getting supplemental water are showing signs of stress. MCS out in western Minnesota is giving me a little hope this evening.
  3. https://www.weather.gov/wrh/timeseries?site=KORD @Hoosier With the update it now shows to the tenth of a degree if you click on the line graph.
  4. While it is 90 degrees currently at MSP, dews have dropped well below forecast into the upper 40s. Feel nice out compared to 101/68 yesterday.
  5. MSP has been mentioning a flash drought developing in numerous AFDs over the past 10 days. We’ve fallen 0.70” below average year to date and over 2” below average for June.
  6. MSP now up to 101. Old record high was 98. https://twitter.com/NWSTwinCities/status/1538991985003941890?s=20&t=aKsREXcyLjlBXgGnN7n5FQ
  7. MSP tagged 100 on a 5min ob at 3:30pm. First triple digit temperature since 2018
  8. Low of 79 this morning with a steamy dew point of 70.
  9. Does the HRRR have a cold bias in summertime? The 23z run is showing temps in the upper 80s right now, while we sit at 97.
  10. Ouch. We are looking at a few thousand in repairs, but the previous owners didn’t disclose a known issue so we might be getting a new system paid for by them. Staying on topic, high of 97 here today.
  11. Horrible timing for our A/C to decide to start dying a slow death.
  12. My father was a pilot based out of ORD from 1987-2016. He texted me saying this is the longest meter he can remember ever seeing.
  13. Washout of a day, 0.56” of liquid and counting.
  14. May 2018 was a crazy month. Latest ice out ever on the metro lakes. The urban lakes didn’t go ice free until May 2nd/3rd followed by the earliest 100 degree reading on record in Minneapolis a few weeks later.
  15. Going up to Lutsen MN this upcoming weekend for some late April skiing. (We downhill ski into May most years in Northeast Minnesota) There is still a very solid snowpack up there. Looks like for the second year in a row my timing will be poor. Cold rain Saturday with a stiff east wind off Superior.
  16. All night snow showers led to just a dusting here. High of 38 today.
  17. Been lightly snowing here for a few hours. Little bit of slush on the deck but that’s it.
  18. Morning low of 25 with pixie dust. Still have some patches of snow from Thursday night. Looks like we might some sloppy snow followed by rain tomorrow night.
  19. 24 and flakes flying. Good morning everyone.
  20. Been snow squalling all day. Dusting on dustings.
  21. Sorry for your loss Brian. 28 with a wind blown dusting of snow here this morning.
  22. Confirmed EF-2 tornado in Taopi MN last night. Destroyed much of that tiny town. https://m.startribune.com/storms-inflict-heavy-damage-on-taopi-in-mower-county/600164599/
  23. Radar is blossoming to my SW, first severe thunderstorm watch of the season.
  24. We had beautiful weekend weather here with highs in the upper 50s low 60s region wide. Lake Nokomis is officially ice free as of April 10th. Average is April 4th so a little later this year.
