Quieted back down to gusts 30-35.There were some whole houses creakers with this wind like whole house enveloped  and not just one side getting slapped in a squall line.

Looks like the HL blocking(-NAO) will hang on for another week, then break down. Not that it means a whole lot this time of year- it can still get pretty warm with a block. The anomalous vorticity lobe rotating down and inducing this wind event is related to that h5 pattern though. With the pattern change, there will likely be less of the coolish (pleasant) days with NW breezes, and more frequent bouts of warmth and humidity by mid month. Ofc it largely depends on the location and strength/persistence of the upper ridging going forward.

Plenty of shredded leaves and small tree debris all over the place, but not seeing anything major. The strongest winds here occurred overnight.

Winds have died down significantly this morning.

Currently 45 and breezy. Looks like a pretty nice day for yardwork. Mid/upper 60s and super low dews.

How's the May snow lookin?

Outside of maybe Canaan, and even there it usually isn't a big deal, odds of May snowfall is pretty much a zero for everywhere in the MA.

I don't think the faux hand wringing over random silly op GFS runs is really necessary tbh, lol.

Late week looks like a well offshore fish storm on the latest op runs and ensembles.

Best chance of some decent rain will be mid week with the cold front. If that fails it may be time to get the sprinklers out.

Looks warm and humid for the first part of the week.

With a trough to the west and a ridge overhead, Tuesday will probably feel like July, with temps pushing 90 in the usual warmer spots.

Then back to low 60's for highs and 40's at night later in the week.

Gorgeous morning out there despite the breeze. Already got in a 30+ mile bike ride and now time for some yard work.

If that actually happened it would give a lot of trees a break, that is for sure!! Course, above 3K feet they are just starting to come out, so maybe not....

Upper 50's and damp here, 0.17 in the CoCoRaHS gauge at 7 this morning. Right at 80 degrees with full sun until late afternoon yesterday, awesome day to have the Monte out, put 140 miles on her driving the backroads of western VA.

Small storms with thunder popping up to my southwest. Heard a transformer explode earlier I think. I really don’t want to be on my computer right now... but I have to. 68° F

Got home and house was too stuffy. A/C time

Turned mine on last night in anticipation of the rising dews.

Legit mid summer day tomorrow.

Have managed to keep the A/C off for today. Have been under clouds most of the day. But did go up to the older Miss J's room and she had her window open and the ceiling fan off. Told her that the room felt like a sauna and to shut her window or turn on her fan. :blahblah:

Had a brief shower here about 30 mins ago. Sun broke through right after.

.03"

Few and far between for much of the region at this point. Maybe more later? My forecast says up to a half inch tonight. We shall see.

Come down to Fort Lauderdale where the dew is 71 with a temperature of 88. We have low 90s for highs tomorrow and similar dews in the forecast and the nights haven't gotten below 70 in a long time. 80 degree lows are pretty commonplace in the summer from what I've heard. Love it here.

Sounds like here except with no winter.

Well, umm, nevermind. It's the same.

Today was perfect for heavy garden work including tilling and getting a bunch of plants in.  Overcast all afternoon but no rain, about 70, and enough of a breeze to keep the gnats out of my eyeballs.  Looks like some showers later this evening which will be nice.

Headed out to the garden to do some watering. I probably won't be as lucky as I was the past 2 years as far as rain goes this year. Looks like it's back to it's normal location along the PA border.
