  1. That seems to be the theme it's season...often times we'll see the warm front jump north just ahead of the cold front, but that doesn't give much time for destabilization.
  2. Just a 2° diurnal range today...

    Interior NW & NE Burbs 2019

    I'm still using my Vantage Pro that I got in 2003...I've replaced the temp- humidity sensor, the rain gage and the anemometer, once during those 16 years...I think I've only needed to replace the battery in the iss, a couple of times. Not a fan of the all in one units like the vue...Definitely go with the Vantage Pro 2 if you can.
  4. Nice dry air mass coming in Fri and the weekend.
  5. Same here...68 was all we could do.
  6. Still just 67° here and overcast.
  7. Already above normal rain for month...just one below normal month past 17.
  8. Rain never disappoints lately....1.76" still coming.
  9. Finally got some sun a few hours ago to get temp to 83°. Down to 73° now after 0.06" of rain....Euro still very wet next week but timing and placement remains difficult.
