Might be high time to move to Phoenix, I think you'd enjoy it there.

Even as the heat monger that I am, this temperature and humidex/HI regime is fine by me despite not getting anywhere near the levels down in the midwest.

Meh, would likely be more enjoyable in Atlanta or Dallas, where you at least get some active weather.

Seems like we've had some extreme wet summer months somewhere in the region lately.  Last year it was Kentucky in July.  June 2015 was very wet over a larger area.  Now this July, some areas will finish over 12" and not out of the question somebody ends up in the 15-20" range.

Don't forget 2014, with the August monsoon here.

Currently at 76 under overcast skies from another MCS which this time look to be around at least a bit longer than yesterday when it took until shortly after 2pm to start clearing.

Cloud deck started to thin out a little bit earlier than yesterday. Currently at 85.

Topped out at 89. Still the highest it's just going to get for this month.

I'm sure that'll make Stebo happy. :)

Yeah, they did touch 32C on the 5 minute obs, which would round up to 90 after converting to F.  But it looks like it was a rounded up ob (maybe it was like 31.8C) which you always have to keep in mind with those.  So the official high goes as 89.

31.7c ends up as 89.

Very wet out here this year. Not biblical proportion rains in a single month as you allude to, but well above average for the past three months.

In fact, at 38.51", we hit 100% of our normal precipitation total for the year yesterday, with over 5 months to go.

NOTE: This is mby CoCoRaHS, FWA is at 34.98"

This past three months alone:

May   9.48"

June  6.83"

July   7.20" (So far)

Total 23.51" (61% of annual total)

Currently at 33.73" as of yesterday. Supposing if the wet pattern was to remain in place pretty much through at least the remainder of this year, anybody want to bet on several areas going for the top 5 wettest years ever by December?

You're probably at a record number for this point in the year.  The 34.98" at FWA is the most on record for them through July 22.

After 5 consecutive days of 88 or 89, ORD made it to 90 today.


Delayed, but not denied.

During this stretch...

ORD: 89/88/88/89/88/90
MDW: 90/89/89/89/87/91
