    July 2019 OBS

    0.63" from the storm today. Meh. Better than nothing though. 1.44" for the week, hoping for some more tomorrow.

    An interesting tidbit. On July 4th, KFAY tied a record high temp (98 F) and set rain record (2.80") in the same day. That duo has got to be relatively rare occurance.

    Radar really blosoming. Movement is nil though. Going to be one of those days where if a storm forms over you, great but otherwise you're screwed.

    Didn't seem like it generated nearly as much convection as RAH was expecting.

    Mid to Long Term Discussion 2019

    Baby steps. From the RAH forecast discussion. Some notable trends have unfolded in the guidance over the past day or so, namely a trend toward a more unsettled weather pattern for especially the first half of the long term, which would in effect limit the excessive heat potential that we are expecting for the mid- week period.

    Not without reason does Fayetteville hold the NC all-time high temp record (110 F on August 21, 1983).

    A tiny cell came agonizingly close today but just missed to the north. It was falling apart anyway; even if it had been on target still might not have gotten much.

    A disappointing 0.17" today. Dodge a lot of good rain today. 5.26" for the month.

    Rainfall much more reasonable in the east. 0.95" today with a monthly total of 2.91" 5.02" since the dry spell broke on May 31st. Vegetation looking MUCH better.

    General Severe Weather

    Also, neglected to post this earlier. Here is a hailstone from the beginning of the storm on last Friday. I think this one is a due to several stones melting and refreezing together.

    Light rain about 5 pm, then the sun came out followed by a black pall descending from the sky followed by some torrential rain and wind. Relatively brief but still got a good 1.33". Yard is in recovery mode from the Ridge of Death. 73/72 here.

    May 2019 Observations

    Saw a NWS blog post about historically warm May 2019. Record warmest at KFAY, second warmest at GSO. Third at RDU. But what struck me was that until this may, the number one warmest May for all three central NC climate stations was... 2018!. 2018 is still the record holder for GSO and RDU. I don't have a single memory about May 2018 being warm but it was somehow warmer than this month's oven at RDU.

    May 2019 Observations

    Finished up with 2.11" yesterday. Just what the Dr. ordered. 3.00" for the month. Shows the pluses and minuses of statistics. I don't remember being last May being particularly warm, but the numbers say it was. On the other hand, in future years someone would look back at my 3.00" in May and say "Must not have been that dry".
