    Really surprised to awaken to temps in the 70s this morning. Coming off a midnight high of 73 and currently @ 71 wth dp 64 and mostly cloudy just before sunrise.

    I see... I expect they will continue to calibrate/tweak for a bit but glad to see it operational! ETA - saw this in the AFD - && .EQUIPMENT... The KDIX radar has returned to service, however problems may still be encountered as all of the issues have not been completely remedied. Further outages are possible until further testing has been completed. In case of an outage, surrounding radars include KDOX, KOKX, KLWX, KCCX, KBGM and TPHL. &&

    That's great news! I miss KDIX, especially with the severe going on right now in the area.

    Yeah I am seeing a fireworks show of lightning off to the west right now but not hearing any thunder since it is occurring quite a distance from here. Temp down to 76 now.

    Hit a high of 86 today, warmest of the year so far. It's starting to cloud over now with high clouds and is down to 80. Dews have been in the mid-60s to low 70s today so definitely sticky out.

    I saw and captured! Looks like they are testing and have made some good progress! Am guessing they were doing some testing because it is not reporting since...

    Got up to 78 here today and mostly sunny all day... until now. When it clouded over (high deck of clouds). Currently 77 with sun trying to peep through a broken deck of clouds but still pretty nice. I noticed the humidity is starting to creep up just a bit.

    Thanks for posting that update! I think there is often a lack of awareness of the size of these doppler radars. I remember following the Hurricane Maria thread when Maria tore through P.R. and almost obliterated TJUA - Before - After (the dish was completely gone) - It took 9 months to bring it back online.

    In other news, I hit 80 today, with the sun in and out (mostly out but there was a period this afternoon where some sprinkles came through). Currently 79, getting a bit humid with the dews in the upper 50s, and clouded over... so I expect the front is close.

    Got up to 74 here today with low humidity. Just an overall beautiful late spring day once the morning showers moved on. Looking forward to the next couple days that will hopefully be mostly rain-free for a change. Currently 72 and partly cloudy.

    Made it up to 71 yesterday by about 3 pm and it was a really nice day. All kinds of folks out and about at the garden stores. lol Temps have been about 10 degrees warmer here this morning compared to yesterday (low of 52 today so far). Also got some rain this morning (0.02" so far between 4 - 4:30 am). Radar currently showing some returns that may add to that. Currently 53 and overcast (it clouded over after the sun briefly came out at sunrise after the initial showers).

    Wow. Low this morning was 42 (41.9). Talk about radiational cooling! Currently 42 (but creeping up) and amazingly enough, a completely clear sky with the sun up and shining.

    Up to 56 here now and the sun managed to briefly shine through a broken deck of cirrus but then there are some nasty-looking lower clouds coming in from the north blocking it again.

    Right after I had posted, I got another shower with another 0.03" added for a total of 0.05" for the day so far (2.19" event total). The sun was trying to come out earlier, but it was like the infamous "self-destruct" type where it quickly clouded over again. At least the sidewalk dried. lol It also finally made it over 50 and is currently 53 and overcast.

    And another 0.02" of rain between 4 - 4:30 am here bringing the event total up to 2.16" so far. Currently 47 and overcast/misty.
