    July 19-20 Severe Weather

    Kind of lol worthy that we're going to have a hard time building decent instability for tomorrow's setup over Iowa after all the extreme instability we've seen the past several weeks beneath zero wind shear. We finally get a potent little vort and can't muster jack squat for cape. #****bag2018season
  2. A little snippet from the DVN AFD back on this day in 2011. Can't even fathom something like this being written now with how slow this year has been. Almost doesn't seem possible. . SHORT WAVE COMBINED WITH FRONTALBOUNDARY AND HIGH CAPES SUGGEST POTENTIAL FOR EXPLOSIVE DEVELOPMENTOF THUNDERSTORMS IF CAP BREAKS. IF THIS SCENARIO PANS OUT THEN ADESTRUCTIVE DERECHO WITH WINDS OVER 100 MPH IS CERTAINLY POSSIBLE.CORFIDI VECTORS WOULD TAKE THE THUNDERSTORMS SOUTHEAST ACROSS MUCH OF THE DVN CWA.

    MLI 89'd today. Second time this past week. 88 here. Dews have dropped a good 10 degrees from midday. Definitely feels better out there.

    MLI has 23 90+ days so far. Funny thing is the max of the summer of 99 occurred back in late May. More than likely will not be beaten, as it's pretty hard to get much above 95 unless we really dry out for a long period of time. We probably would have tagged 100 3-5 times this summer if the crops were like they were back in the old days before the frankencorn was developed.

    Had a very heavy downpour around 11:30 at work. Just gushed down for a good 10 mins.

    Additional storms dropped another 1.33" overnight bringing us up to 1.96". Area lawns and gardens are loving it.

    DVN gusted to 75mph about 15min ago. EDIT: Line of storms will miss us by about 5 miles to the north.

    95 at MLI today, and 94 here. Quite oppressive out there with dews in the mid 70s again. Heat index hit 106 at MLI, and 108 here.

    ^Yeah tomorrow's looking toasty. I'll go with 97 for MLI. Hit 90 today at both MLI and here. Grass is fried. 0.31" for July, and only 0.45" since June 22. Full sun, heat, and lack of precip is taking it's toll on the area lawns.

    Yeah it already lost it. Pushed everything south. Looks hot later this week though. MLI hit 92 today, hit 91 here. Didn't feel too bad though with the upper 60 degree dews. Don't see much in the way of meaningful severe anytime soon. Apparently there won't be a derecho season this year. There was that derecho a few weeks ago, but other than that it's been a very benign season. Basically we're getting 4 Augusts this year.

    Looks like today will be day #20 AOA 90 for MLI. Should add some additional days this week. The Sun-Mon period is looking very hot, with some 100 degree potential, especially over the very dry soils of southeast IA/western IL. The Euro gets 850s up into the mid 20s, and 925mb temps up into the lower 30s. We've really dried out here lately, as we've had <1/2" of rain since June 22. Temps won't be hindered by very wet soils this go around like they recently were. Southwesterly surface flow will also help pump in even hotter air from southeast IA as well.
