June 2018 General Discussion

Recommended Posts

The heavy rainfall and flooding occurring NE-N of DSM is epic for such a short duration.

Yeah the rainfall out in central Iowa is very impressive.  

Lightning has been flashing in the northwest sky for the past few hours.  Outflow boundary is heading this way, and should knock off the warmth and high humidity in the next hour or so.  Not expecting much precip tonight.  The new 00z 3km NAM is trying to pop up storms overhead early tomorrow afternoon, so we'll see if we can get that to work.  Good chance they pop up off to the east though for the ol' classic skip over.  We really don't need the rain, but it would be nice to get a nice storm.

Heavy rain (.85") and even some hail the past hour. Had a dew as high as 78 earlier today... just wow.

temp is down to 68.

That is insane. What was your high? Highest dew at DTW was 75°. High temp was 94°. So again nothing at all that would stick out in record books based simply on high temperature, but the humidity was crazy.

Given it's still 84 and outflow is still a while off, it's safe to say ORD will indeed tie the record high min today of 80 (1931).

Sunset from my place earlier. Yeah you could say I’m pretty rural lol. 

 

Dewpoint maxed at 80 here today. 89/80/106 was the max.

You must have a tremendous view of incoming storms.  I'd love to do the rural thing one day.  Wouldn't want to be too far from a bigger town/city though, so actually your type of situation would be pretty ideal for me.

A lot of record flooding along most of the creeks in the DSM metro area. Hopefully the next couple batches don't add up to much. 

Check out the Des Moines twitter account for a lot of pictures/videos.

90.... First one I’ve seen at my house since I’ve lived here, and 80’s are  in the forecast until  Friday!  Much different summer than last.

I'm going to take the under. :lol:

Regardless, for those of us that work outside in these conditions, Friday and Saturday will be a rough go...dangerous really. Why people root for this sh*t is beyond me.

Under wins for IKK, as I predicted. :D

Friday's peak HI was 108˚, for one 15 minute ob...otherwise it hovered around 105˚ for a couple of hours midday. High temp was 92˚. And yesterday the HI clipped 105˚ a few obs...high temp again was 92˚. No 80˚ dews either, which is sorta surprising considering IKK's history...but we also haven't been as wet as others in N IL. So all in all, a July 1995 repeat this was not in my hood. Still pretty miserable though...I must have lost 10lbs the last 2 days in sweat. :lol:

Watching the shelf clouds roll in from the west is something I never get tired of. You make sacrifices living in a rural area, don’t get the best WiFi and sometimes even cellular data can slow down quite a bit. 

 

Im literally 5 miles south of Champaign, I can see the State Farm center from my house (where U of I men’s basketball play) and multiple big name musicians come to play. It’s kinda crazy when you leave the U of I campus and head south, within about 3 miles you’re in nothing but cornfields.

It must be hot and muggy in other areas of your house.

It is... but there's lots of shade too.  Most homes up here don't have built-in AC. Last year I rarely even used the window AC, because even when it was warm, it wasn't too humid.  

Crazy to think 6 days ago it was 37 and I was contemplating a fire in the stove.

I imagine it smells awesome outside with all of the firs pines and other evergreens around. I noticed the air around here had that "christmas tree scent" to it last night because it was so humid

The woods do smell amazing, but no joke, the bugs are another level bad.

The last time Madison had a June monthly average low temperature below the 1981-2010 average was in 2006. In addition, it has only occurred 4 times in the past 20 years.  Just another example of how warming and increased dews from evapotranspiration have combined to increase low temps in the Midwest.
