This is the third straight day with significant time spent in the 40s.  The avg high temp is in the 70s.  Even moderately below avg weather would be a huge improvement.

Dang, that would be rough on the spirit, as well as the tomatoes.

Cool and breezy day with lots of clouds.  Temps haven't made it out of the low 50s.  On the plus side it's sort of nice that the wind is taking care of the bug problem.  No mosquitoes or gnats today lol.

I haven't seen any mosquitoes or gnats yet this year.

Picked up 0.12" from some passing showers today.  Other than the rain it was a decent day, albeit kind of cloudy.

Some cold-air funnels have been spotted around the area this afternoon.

The average temp here this month has been 44, a departure of -4.8 degrees.  Most trees are still bare but at least exhibiting the desire to bud out(except the oaks), and some small maples have microscopic leaves.  Where was this persistent north/northeast wind all winter?  In twelve weeks (late August), tress will be changing already, as peak in the higher elevations here is usually mid-late Sept.  I'm betting on a cool Summer.  Takes a lot of heat to warm up this giant rock I live on!

Interesting.  Looked like a brief landspout type touchdown.  Interesting how the debris signature shows up a few scans later east of where it was reported to have touched down.  That's 3 tornadoes within 10 miles of us since early March.  They're closing in on us lol.  Luckily they've all been very wimpy relatively speaking.

Long stretch of rain and clouds broke to this incredible Blue Bird Day and temps in the lower 60's.   Hard to stay indoors today.
