    At the Outer Banks this past week and the weather has been great! Lots of of low 80s for highs and just a shower on Tuesday.

    Sure hope the long range GFS is correct. It indicates that there will be a large percentage of the next two weeks at or below normal with temps. https://www.tropicaltidbits.com/analysis/models/?model=gfs&region=us&pkg=T2ma&runtime=2018071212&fh=6

    Temps should be great this week at Shenandoah (..for July). Looks like low to mid 80s for highs and 60s for lows. Have fun!

    I didn't get any rain the last couple of days, but I'm enjoying a beautiful morning. Cool and dry. Opened all the windows and letting the fresh air in. Not bad for July.

    Quoting my own post to make the point that models are bad all year long. Just a couple days back it was looking like we could see a triple digit threat the end of this upcoming week. Now the models have backed off to the point we may see below normal temps (..lots of 80s for highs).

    That band formed after it passed my house. We got the Emergency Management message about flooding in Raleigh. My wife asked if that was something we needed to worry about; which I replied "oh God no, it doesn't rain here anymore".

    Same here. I've missed the storms so far. I hate these popup type storms, much rather see some organized bands that cross the state.

    2018 General Tropical Discussion

    Going to the outer banks the week after next. The weather lover in me says bring on the storms, but the rest/relaxation side says keep them away. Edit: Looking at the models it looks like storms (if they develop) should be pushed westward out-to-sea. But id we got some gulf development that could be directed toward us.

    About a quarter inch at the house. Much more fell to my south and west. But, I'll take anything right now.

    It seems like when we get something good this time of year, we end up having to pay for it: Temperatures will be much below normal on Saturday with low-level thickness values near 1390m near the VA border, H8 temps below 15C, and a fair amount of cloudiness. Highs will range in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Much more sunshine on Sunday will lead to a nice weather day in most locations with highs in the lower to mid 80s and dewpoints in the upper 50s to mid 60s. Highs moderate into the upper 80s to lower 90s for Monday and Tuesday. The warming trend continues for Wednesday and Thursday. Opted to stay below WPC guidance which includes a high of 100 for Thursday and stick with highs in the lower to mid 90s for now. -Blaes

    Nice. I got a light shower at the house, but not enough to help (maybe .05"). Hopefully I (and others) get lucky today or tomorrow and get under a nice storm.

    Lol...yep. But we could beat that "mad dog" back for a day or two. GFS for next Saturday ~mid day (& has some support from other models):

    The Dog Days of summer: The dog days or dog days of summer are the hot, sultry days of summer. They were historically the period following the heliacal rising of the star Sirius, which Greek and Roman astrology connected with heat, drought, sudden thunderstorms, lethargy, fever, mad dogs, and bad luck. They are now taken to be the hottest, most uncomfortable part of summer in the Northern Hemisphere.
