  1. 33.3 degrees for my low this morning. Amazing, a Frost Advisory and it's still calendar Summer! I'm pretty sure I've never seen a Frost Advisory this early before. For the Carlisle area the average date of the first 32 degree low is October 15th while the last date is typically April 15th with 180 days for the growing season. Snow in May...Frost in September...what other crazy things await us in the final three months of 2020??
  2. 37.9 here this morning. I didn't get up to see if there was any frost. Wonder what is MDT's earliest 32 degrees or below date?
  3. A crisp 39.9 degrees this morning. First breakthrough into the 30's of the season. Even ran the heat for 15 minutes to take the chill off a bit.
  4. Thanks for the info, Mag! With a September snow occurring roughly once every 5 years they were horribly overdue. Anxious to see how things turn out over the next 36 hours.
  5. My wife's brother happens to live in the foothills west of Denver in Golden, close to 6000 feet. I'll be able to find out how much snow he gets when I talk to him early Wednesday. I've been pouring over the news articles that the NWS (Denver) has on their site right now. It's fascinating to see the records list for the greatest 1-, 2-, and 3-day temperature changes on record for Denver since the start of records in 1872. Since the records run from midnight to midnight they won't be able to make it into the 1-day. They'll come up a few degrees short on the 2-day since the current forecast change looks like about 62 degrees if they hit 94 tomorrow and drop to 32 on Tuesday morning (or before midnight Tuesday evening). I was reading that Denver's high temp yesterday of 101 degrees was the latest 100+ degree reading on record. Near-record cold is forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday with temps around freezing both days. What I can't get over is how many extreme records have been broken around the country this year. I wonder if September 8th could be the earliest recorded snowfall for Denver? Since I didn't see them mention that I guess they've had snowfall earlier. Accumulating snow in summer. Wow!
  6. Low 51.8 here this morning which ties the low I had last week on that one cool morning. Glorious pre-fall weather today. I happened to catch Tom Russel yesterday. His long-range forecast sounded very encouraging. After the brief upcoming "hot" spell he expects the pattern to change by mid-month with us entering a prolonged "cool" period that sticks around. YAY.
  7. Lol...as you can see on radar that line had a break in it which passed over me missing me just to the east. I could see the really dark clouds just to my east moving south and away from me.
  8. Not quite that much. But, a wind gust to 31 mph heralded in 0.30" of rainfall. Looks like it's winding down now as skies are brightening. Temp down to 71.
  9. Had a wonderful downpour here from a thunderstorm that went directly over me. Got 0.27" and also saw the same rainbow which lasted for at least 20 minutes. Colors were most vivid closer to the eastern horizon and the arc quit roughly 40% of the way up from the ground.
  10. A crisp 51.8 degrees here for me this morning. A sure sign that summer is waning. Another sign is that we are precisely half-way (length-of-day-wise) to the equinox. We've lost 1 hour and 32 minutes since the solstice and have 13 hours and 31 minutes of daylight today. We have one hour and 31 minutes left to go before equal day and night.
  11. Very productive first 7 days of August. 2.90" total. Amazingly, measured precip on 6 out of those 7 days with the only day with nothing on the 5th. Here's the breakdown: 8/1: 0.11" 8/2: 0.37" 8/3: 0.04" 8/4: 1.18" 8/5: 0.00" 8/6: 0.63" 8/7: 0.57" There was also 0.09" on 7/31 and 0.05" on 7/30. Such an amazing turn-around after the drought most of July.
  12. And breaks of blue sky are beginning to appear as the rain here has officially ended. Got 1.18" since midnight with 0.04" yesterday. It was great while it lasted. Just wish there could have been more.
  13. Up to 0.92" now at 9:45 as the heavy rain rates begin to slow down to moderate. ***The following from NWS is posted here for posterity...*** .CLIMATE...

  14. Heavy stuff has rotated northwestward into my area now. Been pouring for the past 30 minutes. I'm up to 0.75" since midnight. At the rate the storm is moving it's hard to imagine getting much over 2" here and points west. So far winds have been gentle from the NE around 5 to occasionally 10 mph. With a temp of 69 is almost feels "raw" outside...lol.
