    West winds really upwell. You can see the difference in the water color. The dark brown water is colder water from down deep. All you have to do is go a couple hundred yards offshore and the water is green and significantly warmer.

    This was more in comparison to during the week when winds were light onshore and water temps were In the mid 70s. They were mid 60s yesterday at Jones Beach. I doubt there was much variability between jones and cedar. You must just like chilly water!

    The amazing thing, yesterday near shore waters were down right frigid with relatively strong west winds. So some of our warmest beach days have that cold dark upwelled water. What do you think the chances are of us actually having a good soaking this week? We are officially drying out on the south shore

    It has rocket fuel water to work with. It was always a question of wether it could get a core together. If and when it does it could put on a show.

    It’s obvious the problem is only getting worse. Another couple years of growth and it will not even be usable.

    Only .5 in wantagh. Brutal right now on the uws. Fall can’t come soon enough for me...

    Wow central nj for the win again. Just light to moderate rain on the uws so far.

    It’s not laziness. First of all they are out in Brookhaven. Second, moving the sensor would screw up the data set. Honestly, I could easily go and prune off the vegetation. But I’d be afraid of it getting back to my employer if I get caught. Bring on the rain tonight, I’m really pulling for this one. I like the setup, in comparison to the past few. I think this is a region wide .5” plus.

    Yeah that’s exactly what it is. The top few inches. Trees and established shrubs and perennials have no problem. Today feels like the hottest day of the week on the uws. It’s not hard to hit 90 in Manhattan with sunshine in July.

    Absolutely! When it doesn’t rain my job becomes ten times harder. I have dozens of planters on campus that require hand watering. And huge terraces that were designed (without my input) an irrigation system. I wish I could posts pics but it always says attachments full. That heat potential next week is awful. I had a feeling sooner or later we would get some real heat. And moving forward that 110 degree day will eventually happen...

    That’s flat out wrong. Colorado State increased their forecast to above normal. As are most others. You may be thinking of the preseason forecasts. The MDR is back to normal temp wise after a cool spell for a couple years. The Gulf and off the SE are positively hot. Very good chance of seeing a high end cat 5 in that area. Not to mention the Enso state being weak nino right now. Only strong ninos really destroy Atlantic tropical activity

    That’s great. I had zero to show for that humidity. Not one drop of rain. Another south shore summer drought incoming

    Can’t buy a drop of rain on the uws or on the south shore.

    It feels like the atmosphere is primed to dump tomorrow. Anyone have the PWATS? I would expect localized flash flooding in any cells that develop tomorrow afternoon ahead of the front. I could see that being in mid island with the sea breeze front

    Really need some good rain tomorrow on the uws. Things are really drying out now.
