    The two closest CoCoRaHS reports come in at 0.26" and 0.56". That honestly seems low given the amount of water that fell from the sky for 20-30 minutes. Our pond is also nearly overflowing, whereas before the rain there was well over an inch between the water level and the top of the pond.

    There is another report north of you at 1.55”.  I’d be surprised if you stayed under an inch based on radar estimates.

    It’s amazing how such a basic thing as a light thunderstorm can feel so glorious when it hasn’t rained in a couple weeks!

    0.28” here feels like a huge win.  You must be doing a lot better than me based on radar estimates.

    That's a little surprising. I was going to go with all sub-100 temps, but figured we'd get a day or two with a downsloping wind to get Dulles there, but I can't find any really hot days (I swear there was a 98 or something at some point). I also figured Richmond would really roast a few days, but they haven't been above 96 (twice).

    I've been to 97.5.  The problem with DCA so far is that our heat was in June, when the river wind was more of a factor.  Another 95 at DCA today.

    Into the breach one last time. Final swim meet and swim team fatigue is 10/10. After today I get my weekends back. 

    I just walked by our local pool.  First time they’ve hosted a tourney in almost two decades.  They even hired a cop for traffic control.  Serious business!

    This summer feels very average so far.  No big heat and some sporadic days in the mid 80s which for this area is basically slightly below average.  

    Slightly above the 1991-2020 normals so far.  Torch in the west, cooler in the SE.

    GEFS pulls the upper ridge further west for the beginning of August. Who knows beyond that.


    Yeah, the OP is flipping all around.  I'd go with persistence and keep it west.  Make sure all the trees burn.

  7. The 12z GFS was something else.  Even though something like this (closed 600 dm near STL) is unlikely, it is going to be interesting if some of the heat that has moved over to the Northern Plains does finally eject this way sometime in August.

    All in all this summer hasn't been too hot... Is the smoke from out west limiting our daytime heating?

    No, it is mostly that the ridge has set up pretty far west.  We get bigger heat when the ridge sets up either over us or in the central US and the heat “rolls over” to us.  This year we are above normal on 90 degree days but below normal on 95+.  A fairly average summer under the new 91-20 climate norms.

    No more B meets for us. We start the season with a B meet and end with an A meet.

    We host divisionals this Saturday, which is going to be a show. I'm taking the day off on Friday to watch the girls while the wife gets ready for concessions...

    All I’m taking away from these posts is to steer my daughter away from competitive swimming.

    Wow...doesn't feel at all close to 90 here.

    High of 87 so far here.  DCA was 86 though 2pm and IAD is 88.  I don’t think we’ll crack 90, but it isn’t as pleasant as yesterday.
