Dismal leaf color display in my neck of the woods with barely any color and lots of gray or brown leaves dropping. Must be the heat. 

 

Same up here. It's the most bland/drab Fall color season I have ever witnessed. Leaves just falling straight off the trees, gray/brown, or extremely muted. Having a 12 degrees above normal October probably affected it...:gun_bandana:

Just had a sun shower here complete with a double rainbow!

Nice!!  I had a little shower here (about to get another soon) but forgot to look for a rainbow once the sun came out.

Got 0.03" from the first little batch and another batch looks to be out over Chester County at the moment.

Currently overcast again (after about a half hour of sun previously) and down to 57 with dp up to 53, after an earlier high of 61.

That second batch looked vigorous for a bit, but it started dissipating before it got here. Received about 0.10" total from both showers. Sun is coming back out, but no rainbow this time.

I have the 2nd batch that has come through (still some sprinkles with it) giving me another 0.01" (total 0.04") but also netting me a rainbow when the sun popped out. :thumbsup:

May end up with a non-diurnal temp thing going on here.  Temp has slowly crept up and hit a high of 59 just before 4 pm when the sun stayed out for a more extended period of time. But then with a warm front approaching, the temps are supposed to remain in the mid-upper 50s in the urban areas overnight.

Currently partly sunny with lots of high clouds and 59 with dp 48.

SPC SWDY2 has the CWA in the marginal risk.  Will see if that changes depending on temps tomorrow, which include some possible RERs -

I finally "bottomed out" at 53 just before 4 am before the temps started heading off to the races.   Took a bit for the overcast to break up with the lifting of the warm front, but it finally did.

Currently partly cloudy and 70 with dp 64, having shot up almost 20 degrees from yesterday's dp that was in the low-mid 40s.

KPHL record breaker for temp today (was low-hanging fruit) -

So far my high today has been 75 with more cumulus rolling in, and it's currently 75 with dp 64.

We posted at the same time, I guess Philly got the record at 77F.

A line of storms moving S--->N w/warnings popping up...

Yeah, I read the warning for northern Delaware, and southwest Delco is included, although my point and click doesn't have a warning (yet).

Just finished mowing the back, just in time it looks like (plus it's dark now, lol).

Eta, got the warning.
