  1. I just mentally deduct 4-5 degrees from their high on warm sunny days. The gave full-on UHI in effect.
  2. Yes. And it took decades of patient effort and billions of dollars/euros to get that good. Predicting weather is just inherently difficult.
  3. Picked up 0.64" yesterday afternoon in a nice downpour after just missing the morning stuff. Then got 1.81" overnight for an excellent 2.45" total in less than 24 hours. 4.31" for the month.
  4. Maybe the SAL will block so much sunlight that it will cause massive cooling along the eastern CONUS.
  5. 0.41" today. Disappointed in this weekend. Was hoping to get a good soaking. Total of 5.25" for the month. Not too bad compared to May and June.
  6. 0.87" yesterday and 0.38" today. 1.25" for the week and 4.51" for the month. Hoping for a good soaking this weekend
  7. Total of 1.88" in the bucket. 2.52" for the week/month. Not a drought buster but progress in the right direction anyway.
  8. Up to 1.56" for the evening. That's more rain today then I got in entire month of June.
  9. FINALLY a nice downpour in Wilson. Don't know how long it'll last, but it is beautiful: 0.45" in just a few minutes. Edit: radar showing perfect alignment for a good soaking; a long line of storms oriented west to east, moving slowly in a ESE direction. Hoping to hit the 1" mark (per day) for the first time since early May
  10. The northern half of Wilson County is on a dismal streak. Cells go here to die. Picked up 0.10" of scraps. 0.18" for the month. 18
  11. Tons of thunder and lightning, but only 0.05" inthe bucket. Very disappointing.
  12. MBY is the black scribble. The big read area to the east was did not hit my house.
  13. The rain is attempting to drive me insane. After yesterday's rug pull, had a nice cell headed my way which disintegrated at my doorstep and then almost immediately reformed a few miles to the east. Its infuriating.
  14. Right on cue the line collapsed in the east while remaining strong in the west. Just for fun after the main line faded a nice litle aftershock cell popped up immediately upstream then instanstly collapsed on my doorstrep.
  15. For something like the 47th time this spring/summer there is a nice line of storms heading in from the NW that is melting away as it heads our way. I don't know if it negative feedback from the dry soils or what but it is happenign over and over again.
  16. Got an astounding 0.02" out of the storms today. The line was super lively right up until it got east of Raleigh and then it just fell apart. Does anyone know why that was? Was there an area of dry air or something? Did we have too much cloud cover in the morning?
  17. Got 0.48" in a brief torrential downpour which included some hail. Got 0.85" yesterday so 1.33" two-day total which was muuuuuuuuch needed. Sitting at 1.49" for the month.
  18. An amazing 0.15" in the bucket for today. Just can't buy a good soaker. Either get fringed or the remnants of a once powerful cell that dies on my doorstep. The I-95 corridor needs some wetness.
  19. This afternoon is turning out to be a dud. Picked up 0.02 this morning. Looks like that may be it for the day.
  20. Had rain three of the last four days for a grand total of only 0.48". We can't buy a good soaker. Sitting at 0.98" for the month. Hopefully we can moisten up this week.
  21. 1.25" for the day. Needed it.
  22. I think one reason is the way it hit NC (we got ~13" in Wilson NC which is like 3 years' average in one storm), NJ, NY and New England, but managed stiff the heart of this forum.
  23. I clearly remember @psuhoffman guaranteed a 1993 redux this winter so I am taking to the bank!
