    And... Hopefully this is the front coming through soon. I've got heavy rain again.

    ~1.4" today and a 24* temp drop from about 1pm. 2.4" since Monday.

    2 hours later and it's still heavy rain, not like earlier but still heavy.

    Boom, crackle, BANG, crackle, snap and heavy heavy rain. Not much wind but a great storm otherwise.
  5. Boom crackle bang and heavy, heavy rain. Good stuff!
  6. It's actually pretty cool the way this storm is just sitting mostly stationary just to my SW. It keeps spitting off heavy showers in this direction.
  7. The ice caves at Williams Lake are pretty awesome too. Ride the rail trail north out of Rosendale a few miles and the caves are right next to the trail, it's like air conditioning in a few spots. It's boomin' pretty good here now with a steady moderate rain coming down. Good timing too, I cut my backyard grass fairly short this morning. It's only the second time I've cut it so far this year so it was pretty high and it's thicker than it's been in 15 years. It actually looks like I have a lawn even though it's not really grass but as long as it's green it's good right?

    It's raining pretty hard here right now. It looks like the bulk of the storm is just off to my south though. Are you getting any of this?

    And just 30-40 minutes north of you it's between 3-4" so far this month. C'mon up and enjoy the lushness

    ^^ sb what are you talking about, clouds, rain and miserable? Do you see that visible sat shot SACRUS posted above? It's mostly clear around the area, it's warm, humid and summery. Don't pay so much attention to commercial forecasters, learn a bit about the weather by reading and listening here, learn how to utilize the tools available to you to come up with your own determinations of what's to come. The next few weeks will most likely end up at or above normal temperature wise, sure there may be a bit more moisture than you'd like but we just went through a very dry period so we're "due" for some rain.

    Well we sure got the convection last night and the humidity today. Good call Forky.

    Me too, significant rain overnight with some crazy heavy downpours and long, rolling, booming thunder with frequent lightning. I'm kind of surprised that local weather stations didn't record more rainfall than they did though. Closest mesonet is 1.01 and a WU station has 1.5.
  13. Wow did it rain hard a few times overnight. I think the long, rolling, booming thunder was the most impressive part of the storms and the frequent lightning was a close second. Closest local mesonet station has 1.01 but a closer WU station has 1.5".

    Heavy rain, lightning, thunder and overflowing gutters. Just like a good summer thunderstorm is supposed to be.
  15. And... there it is. Lightning, thunder and heavy rain. Woot woot, dusty hardpan trails ought to be gone for at least a few days and the freshly cut lawn won't brown out.
