Definitely had a flash freeze right before dawn.

Same situation here. We hit 31 at about 6 AM, but when I looked out everything was still wet. About an hour later a nice thin crust of ice. We covered everything with some bed sheets and that seems to have done the trick.

Bright blue skies and 50 degrees around 7:30 this evening. Felt like I should be about to watch a football game in November. 

Temp has dropped to 45 with the sun going down. DP is 25.

TRI has now set/tied two record lows with this cold snap - by my count.  One was TR, and the other was today.  Temps were 32 both days.  Tuesday AM will be yet another chance for frost with the forecast low of 35 which would be a third record low.  I agree with John - the next below freezing temps will be this fall.  Also, very heavy frost here this morning IMBY.

Fortunately, the last 4 or 5 frost advisories did not result in frost at my place.  Still, mother nature gas lighting us has been stressful to say the least.  Hopefully the threat is over for the season finally.  Gardening game on!

Hit 33 this AM with a pretty heavy frost everywhere. Like everyone else, I’m hoping this is it until Fall as well. I had waited to put most of my plants out-only had about a dozen tomatoes out, which I had to cover up with buckets as well. The thing I was most worried about was my blueberry crop which seems to have fared ok, thankfully. Got to get the rest of my plants in the ground it’s time for summer!

Looks like the clouds have limited any frost.  However, TRI has broken another record low this morning with the thermometer reaching 35.  The old record was 36 which was set during 1959.  That is the third record low set during the last seven days.

I was just referring to this week, lol. Sorry, probably could have phrased that better. I can't take any more freezes. We had a fire going all day last Saturday, (I think...)

I was watching the radar and satellite today and noticed some storms over the upper plateau that looked terrain based. MRX mentioned a wave helping too:

They even made a lil outflow boundary into KY

Good deal.  I understand now.  Looks like a  slp stalls over the SE in a week so that got me concerned.  Looks chilly but no frost!

The high temperature anomalies forecast under clouds are very impressive early next week. I can do without the clouds; but, another delay of SER summer is fine with me.

Oh yeah this is the Obs thread. New York > Oklahoma severe today. I'd love to sit at the intersection of the Hudson River Valley (visibility) and their warm front shear.

Not that it helps is any in winter like it has in the past, but the sun is at just over 100 days in 2020 with no sunspot activity, further correlating to the Little Ice age minimums the NASA scientist was talking about two years ago, which was also several consecutive record low activity cycles.

Man, it was HOT today!  Temp is at 85 currently.   What is that, like 30 degrees higher than last weekend?!  Garden is finally in....have a few oddball things still to plant, but everything is in.

I like the last two days. Tropical bubbly clouds and a breeze. If you really imagine hard, we're on the slopes of Hawaii mountains. I know I'm friggin bored!

3.85 inches of rain yesterday into this morning. Most of it between about midnight and 6 am. Had some more flooding in parts of the area.  May had been comparatively dry before that. Each month this year has had one of these anomalous rain events where we get 3.5+ inches in a 24 hour period.

Just for the record, I have been walking around in a light coat today.  Did we by chance set some record low max temps in the area today?  I finally went out and cut some firewood.  That warmed me up.

With today’s storms I have crossed 6” of rain this week. Totals like that seem to be isolated though. I just got unlucky. I’ve needed to mow all week but the yard is a swamp.

I have a lake in my back yard. Welp. At least I have my own wetlands preserve with social distancing, lol!

Sitting here getting ready to watch SpaceX/NASA put US astronauts into space...Looks like they have a window with t-storms pushing out to see and other storms in central Florida.  Tight window but looks like it is there.  31 mins to go...Lift off is shortly after 4:30PM.

T-storms in the emergency landing area likely scrubbed that launch.  Next window is 3:22 Saturday and then 3:00 Sunday if needed.  Good looking rocket.

NASA and Space-X like the least diurnally favorable time of day for June in Florida. I know other non-weather factors go into the launch window, including the ISS position. Still, it's so 2020.

Eventually they will launch between thundershowers. It'll be so exciting. I remember in 1981 watching Space Shuttle Columbia, after a couple delays. Parents were so excited to get back into Space after a 5 year hiatus since Skylab. Now we experience it after an even longer 9 year hiatus.  

And stupid Putin can stop with his silly trampoline comments. Hey Vlad, who's been to the Moon?
