    Today actually turned out to be the "comfortable" day with dews in the mid-upper 50s. But I think we're done with days like this until probably September. Currently 83 after a high of 87 here today, with scattered cirrus clouds and plane-generated contrails most of the day.

    Made it to 90 yesterday and by that late afternoon, it was blast-furnace feeling as the dews were creeping up ahead of the front. Different story this morning with the dp @ 56 and current temp at 71. I did a search for past data for PHL and apparently the last time we hit ("official") triple digits in the city was 7/7/2012 (101), so it has been awhile. Seems that whenever we have antecedent wet periods, it takes really sustained high temps to dry the surface enough to get to a triple digit high.

    Barry now upgraded to a hurricane with the latest advisory (just posting summary of it with position) - Meanwhile, current temp here is 82 with dp that has been slowly rising this morning (up to 67). Yesterday had a high of 88 with dews in the low 60s and a breeze, so pretty nice.

    Got 1.19" out of round 2 so far for a total of 1.72" for today's event. There looks to be some more scattered rain to the west that might add to that if it holds together. Currently 71 with some light rain.

    Currently under the heavy band and just hit the 1.50" mark total so far for the day (0.97" since round 2 began). Temp is down to 71 with moderate - heavy rain with occasional thunder.

    EAS for Flash Flooding and Severe Thunderstorm Warning up (including my area). Currently at 0.66" and it got dark real fast. Looks weird and the windows are steamed!

    Hearing thunder again with the leading edge of the heavy precip line coming into my area. Already added 0.11" to my earlier 0.53". Currently 75 with varying light - moderate rain.

    Got 0.53" so far out of that round with 2"/hr rates for a time. It just steamed everything up big time now. Temp is currently 75 with light rain and dps in the mid 70s now.

    Now getting rain. Not gully washer yet but pretty heavy. Temp hit 88 before the clouds lowered it and now the rain taking it down more. Currently 84 with heavy rain. Up to 0.07" at post time (no thunder/lightning yet).

    Severe Thunderstorm Warning was issued and I am literally right on the eastern line of it (the radio activated for it).

    After a low of 70 this morning, was already up to 84 by 9:30 with a dp of 69. You can definitely feel the juiced up difference this morning versus yesterday. Currently 85 and partly sunny as the clouds start to roll in and thicken. I see a NW-to-SE-oriented line to the west slowly pushing to the east, so it won't be long (assuming that holds together).

    Made it to 91 today just before 3 pm and with the dews in the mid-60s, you could feel a bit of humidity but it still wasn't too bad thanks to a light but active breeze. Currently mostly sunny and 87.

    Just fell short of 90 today (high of 89) but the dp had a low around 57 but has since crept up to the low 60s later this afternoon and you could feel the difference (although still not like last week). Currently 82 and partly cloudy.
