    As the fall color show is in its early stages, I wonder if the warmer than average temperatures will have any effect?

    Late June at that. It was hoodie weather WELL into June. Then July was hot and humid almost continuously, and then August started hot and ended cool.

    I have noticed the early fall color showing up and I hope the upcoming warm weather does not screw with it. This will be the 1st real heat we've had since mid-late August. Detroit had 10 days of 90゚ this year, which is to below average, but all 10 came between June 28 and July 29th.

    Spring/Summer 2019 Complaint/Banter Thread

    Yes they did. And unlike Milwaukee, DTW is not located in the urban core, rather it is an outlying area. Actually near the airport is a sort of rural area, and the South end of the airport valleys so temperatures get much colder, especially at night. On February 20, 2015 when DTW officially had -13゚, when I drove by that spot on the South side of my car registered -22゚. I would not want the thermometer located there either, because thats sort of unfairly low, but I too am convinced that the current placement of the thermometer is causing readings to be a bit elevated compared to surrounding areas.

    The Europe heatwave is something. Also, a huge summer cold snap is going on in Russia.

    Spring/Summer 2019 Complaint/Banter Thread

    I have complained multiple times about Detroit having the same issue that you describe in Milwaukee. It seems it's not a problem with the thermometer themself, but rather the immediate area/environment surrounding the station, as well as exact station location. The thermometer itself is probably accurate, but i admit it irks me when tenths of degrees are so important for certain things, but official climate records are VERY subject to changes from past years due to asos placement.

    Todays record is on the "lower" side at 97 (yesterday and tomorrows record is 100) so theres a shot.

    Im further north than that. On the Michigan side of that 0.23" in canada. Almost seems the placement is SLIGHTLY off. Where do you get maps like that?

    Mid-July Heat Wave

    Just came to edit my post but you beat me to it lol. The 86゚ dewpoint was Marshall. I am not familiar with that station so I cannot say, but I am familiar with Monroe. There was one day I think a week ago or so that Monroe had dewpoints touching 80 when every other station was below 70. To be honest I kept checking the Monroe dewpoint yesterday just to see how high it would go lol, knowing it is not correct, and I expected higher than its peak of 85゚. The highest "official" dewpoints at the nearest first order stations to Monroe were 78° at Toledo and 77° Detroit. Still, I have a very hard time believing that Marshall dewpoint. Whenever a station is many degrees higher than anywhere surrounding it, it's a red flag. The closest stations to Marshall- Battle Creek Kellogg, Battle Creek/Kalamazoo, and Jackson, had peak dewpoints of 79, 80, and 79.

    July 2019 General Discussion

    Got a much needed 0.53" of rain yesterday afternoon in a thunderstorm, but much heavier totals to my immediate West and South. DTW got 1.61". Earlier in the week, heavy storms missed me mere miles to the north, a difference of a dew hundredths of an inch and a few inches of rain. Have been so barely avoiding the needed July rain with thread-the-needle like precision to the point where i dont even know if it would show up on a map of precip totals.

    The Monroe dewpoint sensor has been off for some time, see above.

    Mid-July Heat Wave

    It's not legit. Some of the ASOSs which are not 1st order stations have erroneously high wet bulb temperatures in moist air masses. But the Monroe (TTF) sensor has been off for quite some time, so it predictably had dew points in the mid 80s yesterday. DTW soared to a season high of 94, dewpoint 77, before thunderstorms around 3pm cooled temps into the 70s for the rest of the day.
