July 2018 Observations

Recommended Posts

So far this week we've had 4 95 degree days, followed by 2 97 degree days. Looking forward to a little cooler and hopefully some rainy/stormy days starting tomorrow. It's so dry even the Kudzu is wilting!!!

Been interesting watching all our weather retrograding to the West all week long. Missed today's showers by 2 miles to the E (it rained at the airport) and 8 miles to the NW (it rained at our daughters during her cookout).

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.

.03", rain has been missing me for the last 3 days. Hopefully tomorrow or Saturday we will get some much needed rain. Currently 85/76.

It's dry here. I missed most all of the rain from the last rounds and today there were storms all around as the front pushed south and we slid through a gap and didn't even get a trace.  Another hot dry week coming after a nice weekend so the lawnmower will stay in the shed.

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.

Missed everything so far today. It looked promising for a while, then put on the breaks. New storms formed to the E and SE.

Picked up 0.54 inch of much-needed rainfall today. Looks like we may get some more overnight too, if current radar trends hold true.

Raining pretty good at the house right now.  Nice west-east band moving south.

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". :weep:

Both temp and dew point have dropped as the wind has picked up out of the north northeast. Currently 81/73 with sustained winds of at least 20 gusting to 30 easily.

What an amazing reprieve Mother Nature has provided this morning and today.  61 and windy, not a cloud in the sky!  I know she is going to drop the hammer later this week with another heat wave, but this day might get me thru July  without going crazy from the heat.  For now, I'll take my late September morning and not burn my feet on the deck!

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

Have a good time.  I remember hiking to Corbin Cabin back in '07.

Low this morning of 68. Not bad for July. Took the dogs for a long walk and never broke a sweat and the pups weren't panting hard like they normally do. Currently 78/72.

Afternoon folks!

WHAT a YUGE relief from the HEAT this Early July! Well deserved for ALL of Us in the SouthEast!

Walked out the door this Morning, @ 5:30am, WHAT a WELCOME Respite! It felt like Early Fall.

After nearly *Whiteout* "Heavy RAIN" conditions yesterday as T-Storms moved though AND putting on a Awesome Lightshow..

Picked up nearly a 1 1/2" yesterday IMBY, in short order.. (Yes; My RICE Paddie is doing quite well).. ;)

Just before sunrise, 69.9 F breezy conditions.

Currently 79F here on the Beach, partly Cloudy

Humidity & DEW IS AT 77 & 70.9% respectively.

Winds are out of the NORTH @ 17MPH gusting too 25 mph or so..

Beach water temp, (at Johnny Mercers pier, Wrightsville beach) is at 89F, , Yes you read that correctly, Bath water temps..

This VARIES up & down our local beaches, in Carolina Beach it is at 84F.

Turned off the AC this morning, (IT was cooler outside than indoors!)

Opened the Winders, airing out the Home.

Fishing is beginning too enter the summer Doldrums, though the King & Spanish Mackerel bite is "off the hook" with-in one mile off the beaches, Lots of reports of YUGE KING Mackerels exceeding 30 pounds up to 50 pounds have been common in the past couple week(s)..

Spanish Macks in the 4~6 pound class.

There have been SAILFISH  caught & sighted off the Local pier here,and MANY caught with-in one mile off the beach..

Now get this! A Guy caught a MAHI~MAHI While fishing a Bottom Rig, Fishing for Red Drum , ON THE BEACH..

There's even been a few Bonefish caught here in the area(s), Almost unheard of!

Anyhoo, sry for the lil OT posting..

Here's that pic of the Mahi~Mahi caught ON THE BEACH!
