I looked out this morning and there was a deck of cirrus obscuring the sky so there was no way to try to catch it. :(

Otherwise my low was a little warmer than I expected this morning at 70 but I could tell when the front came through just after 8 am and that started the dry air influx, taking the dp that was just north of the low 70s, down to 57.  It's stabilizing now and no longer a suffocating steam bath, but a typical late spring/early summer day.  Currently at 82 with dp 61, and partly cloudy.

Give it a push, DP is still 65 here.

I think it's down where you are now but the dry air behind it needs to travel over some hot streets and buildings before it gets to you! :lol:

Lol - I'm starting to feel it now.

Beautiful night here in NW Chester County PA with dews now in the 40's - no shocker but out here in NW Chesco our "heatwave" never came close to fruition....best we could do was the "dirty" 90 on Sunday at 89.8....no doubt more chances of heat waves here in the NW burbs....but can we break through to the other side??? stay tuned - the drama continues!

Looks like some light rain this morning? Zone forecast only calls for 30% chance of showers but looks like we could see a period of light rain  especially towards southern areas. Feels great outside! 63 F

Actually had a low of 62 this morning, so a nice break.  It has been overcast all morning and now am getting some light rain (currently at 0.02") and it's currently 64.  I was a bit flummoxed that KDIX had suddenly died but then saw this -

I'm just happy with the overcast skies and temps around 60F with a breeze. Any substantial precip is/was an afterthought. I'm happy w/the couple showers/light rain I received to wash off the car and freshen up the grass/plants...

Interesting things afoot, atmosphere shifted from north movement to southeast around an hour ago must be a front through the area. Heavy rain continues with training down through central Bucks county. 

*** Forecast updated again to a slight chance of showers at 20% rest of the afternoon :facepalm: anybody at home at the NWS?

I don't understand that at all. I get the radar is out but do they not check dover's? It's clear as day this is a period of moderate rain with way higher pops than 20% unless you are up in the northern areas.

COD radar I like is out but others are working, this one clearly shows the current training
