    Cloud deck is starting to break up quickly now with some blue visible and sun popping out. Ended up with 0.04" from this morning's light rain (enough to wet the ground and plant foliage). Will probably still have to pull out the hose. Temp up to 71.

    Finally getting a very light rain. It's been going for about 15 minutes and it finally tipped the bucket for 0.01" (so far). May still have to pull out the hose today. Temp is currently 69.

    Wow. Not a (measurable) drop of rain. I expected at least something overnight but that drier air meant business and continued to evaporate the stuff away as it approached (so far). Will see if any leftovers make it here later this morning.

    It wasn't until sometime after 6 pm when I started feeling a bit of a breeze and some air mixing. Will have to see if any of that makes it here although the heaviest may stay south. We might get the heavier stuff over the weekend though. Currently 78 and overcast. Happy first day of summer tomorrow morning at 6 am ET I believe!

    Actually had the same high today as yesterday - 87 - which was surprising given today was progged as the "cooler" day. The mixing of dry air from yesterday (with the noticeable breeze) was missing today, so it actually felt warmer today as well (probably because there was more sun too). The drier air has been evaporating some of the showers to the west though. It's currently clouding over now and 85.

    The cool front has moved through and starting to feel the difference in the air with the breeze. High so far today was 87 here and the generally overcast sky most of the morning and early afternoon kept the temps down under 90. Currently 86 with mostly blue sky and just a few puffy cumulus.

    Ended up with 0.15" of rain from the thundershower last night. Currently 78 and mostly cloudy. Seeing some scattered showers off to the west and am not sure how the temps will respond today with the front pressing down from the north and the current overcast. It will depend on whether the sun can break out in full before the front arrives.

    And I'm getting the side-swipe. Got the SVR alert and was able to go out and put my umbrella down just as the large raindrops started falling with some gusts of wind. Good timing Mt. Holly! Edit to add, getting thunder and up to 0.07" of rain so far. Didn't get chance to water a hanging plant after the heat today so won't have to after this!

    May get sideswiped by that line coming down from the NW. In other news, I finally saw my first lightning bug. It was just one but hey... Currently 85 at post time with a bit of a breeze but still soupy out.

    I managed to just tap 93 around 3:15 and am now down to 92, so I think that will be the high here for today. It has definitely been a blast furnace out there due to the humidity! It's clouding up a bit though and is only partly sunny. There are some pop-up cells south of here and a line rolling in from the NW on the radar. Don't know if that northern line will actually drop down as far as the Delaware Valley but they will probably get some of that up in the Scranton area and possibly the Poconos and Lehigh Valley.

    Tied my yesterday's high at noon today. Currently 91 and partly cloudy w/dews in the 60s.

    Hit 90 just after 11:15... Didn't hit that until around 2:30 pm yesterday. Off to the races!

    Currently 88 here, about 3 degrees warmer than this time yesterday. Still on track to hit or exceed yesterday's high here of 91. Dews in the mid-60s vs yesterday's mid-50s.

    Temp currently 79, a degree warmer than this time yesterday. Guessing it may hit a similar high here today as yesterday (91), within a couple degrees.

    Just bottomed out at 69 this morning and on the way up now. Currently 70 and partly cloudy with dp 69. Not too bad out with that but it will be sizzling soon enough.
