The morning MCS dried up over central Iowa, but the remnant disturbance re-fired this evening and dropped another 0.30" on my yard.  I've received measurable rain on 8 of the last 11 days.  We aren't getting a ton of rain (4.53" in May), but we can't shake the constant clouds and dampness.

Absolutely gorgeous day!  Temp in the mid 70s, dew in the 40s, nice breeze, full sun.

Nice day here as well, though not as dry.

1.71" yesterday with more in surrounding areas. Up to 9.41" for May with some outlying areas in the 10-12" range. Just crazy wet.

Had a tornado warned cell yesterday (saw nothing) and a funnel cloud just our our northwest on an unwarned storm (video link below) Thanks to Matt Leach for posting on his Facebook page. Matt posts here occasionally, especially during winter storms. I got to the area 5 minutes after it dissipated, story of my life lol . Also had straight-line wind damage from late Friday night's storm.

Yesterday was OK here, definitely more summer-like. It was humid and we managed a high of 78*F.

We got screwed though in almost every direction by the "strong" t'storms.

Very nice weekend indeed.

Temp/dew of 91/88 at Bandar near the Persian Gulf.  Amazing that people actually have to live through that.  Has to be absolutely insufferable.  If the wind would just change direction and stop blowing in off of the gulf their dews would probably crash a good 40-50 degrees.

Hello, dropping into all regional forums to mention that there is a 2017 tropical season forecast over at Tropical Headquarters.

Entries are welcome into early June without penalty.

This is where to go if you're interested ...

Thanks.

Top shelf day here, with a high of 80*F and now t'storms moving through.

Make that a high of 81*F.

Interestingly enough, with the exception of 2013 (in which the high barely got above 60*F), every Memorial Day since 2010 has featured a high of 80*F or higher.

Kind of impressed with the lightning the storms have had tonight, not really too frequent but very vivid.

May ends up +0.5 for CMH. After bottoming out at 35F on 5/8 and maxing out at 88F on 5/17, the final half of the month was fairly close to average which slowly nudged the average to the positive side.

Finished at 0.0F @ Lansing. That's two perfectly normal months this year. March was 0.0F also.

-1.1 for the month at GRR but quite dry.  Given all the rain around us, only 1.5" for the month for a -2.48" deficit.

Wow, that's crazy in comparison to us down here. 9.60" for May and 11.66" since 4/27.

Forgot to share this before. I was on vacation in St. Pete Beach, FL from May 20-28th. Had an awesome sunset one of the evenings, probably one of the best I've seen. Didn't have my DSLR on the trip, but cell pics were definitely good enough...
