    Yep, it's pretty chilly today. It'll be short-lived, though. The euro has 80+ indefinitely beginning midweek.

    We finally experienced a small, but pretty good thunderstorm cell very early this morning. I picked up a bit of pea-size hail and 0.44" of rain. I put grub control granules on the lawn yesterday, so the rain will save me the trouble of watering the lawn. I'm hoping for a bit more rain tonight.

    It has been an incredibly boring storm season in my yard. Some locations have had good storms, but there has been nothing widespread, leaving some of us with very little.

    Training storms early this morning dropped 1+" of rain on the far south side of Cedar Rapids and 2+" on the north side. Here on the west-central side I only got 0.56" as the the heavy cells all went around me. It has been an unlucky month.

    About ten degrees cooler than expected today.

    I did not mind a day or two of chilly weather after a very warm first ten days of May, but here on day 3 of the chill I'm officially ready for 70s and 80s again.

    The stormy pattern this month is not delivering for us. We only got a quarter inch Friday night and then only a few hundredths last night.

    Getting missed north and south has been the theme so far this month around here. This morning's storms mostly missed south. I got a quarter inch of rain.

    Nada for rain around here overnight/this morning.

    My 3-day rainfall total is 0.89", quite a bit less than I had hoped for and expected. Still, that's enough to send the lawns into the next level of growth.

    The storms remained north and south, but the rain shield dropped 0.51" here.

    Last night's storms all missed north and west. Tonight's storms are mostly going to miss south. The lack of rain is allowing me to get the garden planted, but boy we sure do need a good soaking. Models have had us in the 2+" bullseye for days, but it's not working out.

    We are putting together a real nice string of 70-degree days.

    Sunny and 75 degrees with a light wind over here this afternoon.

    We hit the upper 60s today after mid 60s yesterday. The temp is nice, but I'm really looking forward to getting higher dews up here. That doesn't appear likely in the near future, though.
