Triple digitS!

At the moment, about the only US places that compare are right along the southern border. At this moment, the map says "98" about where I am but it should update:

Re: What's the weather like where you are?

I was "a dry heat" today. In the 80's but......pleasant??? I enjoyed working in my garden tonight and not immediately sweating. Not even 1 drop. We also had a nice cool breeze!

Very strange for this time of year! It feels like fall weather.

Re: What's the weather like where you are?

This morning was back to more "normal" conditions. It was only 78 degrees and 98% humidity. A 90 minute run leaves me dripping wet but what a great way to start the day.

Re: What's the weather like where you are?

Nearest weather station where such things are recorded:

"... the 2nd hottest July ever."

Only 1906 had a hotter July. 2007 3rd, 1998 4th.

Re: What's the weather like where you are?

Tropical storm Iselle is bringing in some rain and high winds. the outer bands started to show on the Big Island around 8 p.m. last night and they have had some trees down as well as rain. The system is moving slowly so it is going to have inclement weather for awhile.

Maui has also had power out from the wind damage.

I have had some off and on rain and high winds and some things are falling outside, but so far the rain has not been hard enough or long enough to cause flooding. It helps that the ground was very dry so it can absorb a lot of water now. Stronger winds and more rain is expected throughout most of the rest of the day and maybe into tonight as the system which broke up just as it hit Hilo passes to the south.

Hurricane Julio is a couple of days out, but for now looks like it will track north of the state. Hurricanes that track North are less likely to come back to us if they track high enough. Systems that track to the south are more problematic as they can suddenly turn northward. Julio will probably bring more rain Sunday and Monday. The wind and rain will cause most of the problems, but for now most businesses decided to close their doors today and told their employees to stay home so it helps that fewer people have to be out on the road. It is better for everyone to hunker down and stay safe.

I have my cats downstairs as a precaution, but they do not like being excluded and have been following me around like dogs. This is not a complement. Cats are not dogs and anyone who keeps cats knows they will cross in front of your path to get attention and get mad if you don't see them and trip over them. Cats are much better in thunderstorms than dogs, they just find a box or shelf or go under the furniture to hide. They don't make noise and they don't panic.

I made sure I got gas the other day, my flashlights are placed around the house and were tested. I have filled up my containers for water and I took in most of the things I could find although there are probably more than a few that I missed. I have a lot of pots in the yard. I bought a lot of canned beans, spaghetti and mini ravioli and I have bread and peanut butter to tide me over in case the power goes out and I can't heat anything up. I have a manual can opener.
I have a propane mini stove and propane cylinder (I just bought although I did have to go to a few places to find the burner and the fuel) and I got some charcoal for my grill. I have my emergency box, but I don't think I will need it and I have food, medicine and a crate for the cats just in case.

We get about a week warning when hurricanes are in our vicinity but people, including me wait till a few days before to stock up. Actually, I only heard about the storm two days ago because I do not have tv, listen to the radio, or read newspapers and my internet was only working intermittently for most of July.

We get a few warnings in an active season, but most of the storms fizzle before they reach us or just miss. It helps to be a small target in the middle of the ocean and to have a pressure ridge north of the islands which usually protect us from the storms by shearing off their tops before they get to us. The ridge is also responsible for the trades that we normally get.

Re: What's the weather like where you are?

Hurricane Bertha hit the UK. Fortunately my side in the North West wasn't too bad. Winds last night around 35mph, a few neighbours fence panels came out, but nothing like any structural damage could I see locally.

Quite sunny this morning, then changed for cloudy and looked like it could rain. But now at 3.45pm the sun is shining, and the wind is said to be only 21mph. The temperature is 63F - 17C.

Re: What's the weather like where you are?

It was again 100°f yesterday at the nearest weather station (38°Celsius).

We are now promised a brief storm. The question is, how much wind? The Weather Service says "gusts to 33mph" but they can often be wrong for my location. We had one summer storm with gusts above 60mph! It was not even the one that left 50,000 without power and blew trees down all over the place.

Rain is beginning to fall where there was the major forest fire in the Northwest. It isn't likely to be much rain. Lightning strikes starting more fires is a real worry.

Mid-80's later in the week. Maybe, it won't be so hot after this. I cannot remember more summer heat in earlier years here.

Re: What's the weather like where you are?

Rain coming in tonight and tomorrow. We are expecting about 1/2" of rain tonight with 2 more inches tomorrow. It's not supposed to be too windy but we are further in from the coast than some in the Northeast.

At least we have cool dry weather expected for the 3-4 days after the storm passes :)

Phew, a lot of rain there for you Lindsaylew82 and skiingjeff :? hope not too much damage done to your gardens, and it stops very soon.
I would melt in that 100F heat digitS'. :roll:

Quite a mixed weather day my side, with rain, as now at 6.30pm. Quite a bit of sunshine at least over the day. :D
The temperature has been around 61F - 16C, and the wind speed has dropped to only 11mph.

It is sort of big and orange, and gives off a nice warm to hot glow.. Oh, it is up in the sky.....Well, it should be. :D

Quite mixed again my side. Some rain, then sunshine, scattered clouds about though, so no idea how it will turn out of course.
At 11.30am the temperature is around 59F - 15C and the slight wind speed is 13mph.

Re: What's the weather like where you are?

Now I'm procrastinating after 1.75" of overnight rain.
I have to go out there and empty all the catch trays and anything else that collected water.... :roll:

And there are a few tomatoes and a melon that I wasn't sure would be a good idea to NOT harvest. I'd better go check on them too.

(I'm trying to nudge myself into action :bouncey: ...well more like motion :-() )

Well, I need them at the moment, although only slight rain at nearly 11.30am. It was sunny earlier, then changed to cloudy too. :cry:
Temperature around 59F - 15C, very slight wind speed of a grand total of 4mph.

Wow, lindsaylew82 has the sunshine, wonderful that is. :D Um, any to spare, can you blow a bit across to me please?. :D I will make extra currant buns. :lol:

That is a good temperature compared to my side Wombat, hope more of the sun comes for you. :D

Re: What's the weather like where you are?

Despite an active hurricane season, most are passing us by and just some wind and rain. It is typical August weather 89 degrees with mostly clear skies. Thank God for trade winds, without them there would be hot August days and nights. I keep my half gallon water jug handy and I drink almost all of it when I work outside. I sweat most of it off.

Well, if 80 and humid wasn't enough - let's go to 90 and humid! Wishing for 70's and dry. Maybe we'll get some beneficial rain from the T-storms that are supposed to go through this afternoon. :)
