tropics globally just completely dead.   Guess there's more to it than the warm oceans right now...

Yeah. The atmosphere requires constant instability for tropical activity. The dry air is also a major problem.

87/80/101

7th day this summer with an 80 degree dew point at my PWS, granted my PWS is sited near vegetation (though still in full sun with good air circulation) and evapotranspiration is possibly a contributing factor.

89 for the high here. You usually beat me on days with a southerly flow.

Yesterday I couldn't get to 90, only got to 89.2.  I'm sure we'll get another 2 or 3 days of 90 before the front moves through on Thursday.  The S wind depending on strength makes it a struggle to get 90.

Ugh united canceling flights already due to anticipated storms

doesn't take storms hitting the terminals to throw up some major delays. usually the airlines will start considering cancels for thunderstorms when delays are 2+ hours.

People leaving the beach at Coney Island as thunderstorms quickly develop.

Just made it home from beach.   CI being pounded by heavy rain for last 10 mins.  (now 4:03pm).     Came on fast from the west.   Not much thunder.    The next 30 mins. were a bore of light rain,  a few rumbles, breaks in the cloud cover.

84/77/94 with clouds encroaching from the NW, blowing in like a haboob, getting gusty here as well.

Topped out at 88. Only one 90 this month (Aug 4th) and two 89’s (Aug 1st and 18th).

This one may actually make it across the sound without collapsing. Hoping for something at least decent. Hearing thunder now. 

We have better luck with storms coming from the sound than the west. I don’t feel good about this one, mainly because I don’t have outdoor plans right now...

Question is, with blue skies to the west of the developing line, and plenty of sunshine left in the day, will storms develop on the outflow boundary?
