Pretty amazing thunderstorm over me for the last 45. Lots of cloud to ground. Weather geeks dream.

I’ve been under this ever-growing cell in northern Guilford for the past hour or so.  Continuous rumbles of thunder and hard rain.  I want to go to bed, but my German Shepherd is an outdoor dog and he sleeps on the screened-in back porch at night and he’s not really a fan of loud thunder.  He’s not terribly scared of it.  He just likes company during thunderstorms.

My wife had a boxer clinging to each leg and one on her lap. Lost a tree but put 8 inches of water in the pond. Score!

Another big win for today in the rain department. .76" of a good soaking rain once again. Temp quickly fell from the mid 80's to the mid 70's once the rain started a bit after 12 and stayed there the rest of the day.

Picked up another .41" this morning. This brings my 4 day total to 2.49" of badly needed rain. Lots like the next 4 days will give us a chance to dry out. Currently 83/78.

Very frustrating day for me rain wise.  A very nice cell blew up in Wilson.  Poured at work for a while.  Looking on the radar you could see a little refuge of light rain/drizzle amongst all that red and it was right over my house!!.  Only picked picked up 0.06".  Grumble grumble.

Today was the second hottest day of the year In the Triad, with a sultry High of 85. Take heart, 70s coming up this weekend!

What Triad is this you speak of?  My Triad has had plenty of 90s??

Thunderstorm with heavy rain in Christiansburg. Still only one 90 degree day so far in 2019. Such a far cry from the hell that is Columbia SC 

CAE with 75 days over 90 so far. Not too bad actually, I think they had like 120 days one year recently. 30 days of 95+ (but 13 more at 94), and just 7 of 100+. All in all not too bad for them, but still a ways to go. 

Edit: Quick check, looks like 2016 they had 109 days of 90+, with 21 days of 100+. 111 days of 90+ in 2018.

GSP at 51 of 90+, with 8 at 95+, an overall high of 97. (2019)

Obviously meant 95. But you knew that.

As unfortunate as it is, yes, yes I did know that.  I endure this miserable heat every day and countdown my weekends until October.  Almost there!

My CoCoRaHS report for Monday.

'T'

'Twas barely enough to call it a sprinkle. Just a few random raindrops. Emphasis on 'few'.

Wow. Only 75? They are running a bit behind. Of course, they can hit 90 into October. Yea, 2016 was a miserable hot summer and 2018 seemed like it would never end. Hurricane Michael finally ended that summer. Do you happen to have this years stats for Augusta Bush Field (KAGS)? Here in the NRV,  today may be the last time this year we get close to 90. Highs will be in the 70s by week's end.
