88F right now.  We haven’t had any more than a few hundredths of an inch of rain since Saturday when we got a decent rain.  The rain has been hitting everywhere but here and the past couple days has not been nearly as widespread as forecast.

After my abnormally wet start to June, I have only recorded 0.02 inches of rain since June 14th. And that came in one brief, light shower. 

It's very dry here, again. Highs have been around 85F over the past two days as well...

In the thick of our wicked summer heat.. Already 92F at 8:30am, 111F expected today, down 2 deg from yesterday.. Phoenix tied their record warmest low ( for the day ) yesterday with 91F. 108-110F tomorrow, then back to 110F+ until Wednesday.. maybe only 104F  by next weekend.. Awaiting more than a few sprinkles as the atmosphere tries to moisten up. Better rain chances possible by next weekend.

Only got to 105f today. Headed up north to visit the wife's family and even the northeast was at 95 to 100f. Pretty muggy here but not like home!

Agree. I've only had 3.5" so far this month but feels very dry for the rainy season. I'm in the donut hole again. All storms dry up or change path as they approach my location. some places around Orlando are over 10" in July.

Currently 95F (35C) at 7pm, off the back of a high of 102F (39C) here today. Absolutely boiling. 

Most areas around south London appear to have hit the 100F (37C) mark today. 

Some climate models are forecasting highs of 105F (40C) for London and southeast England on Thursday. If that is the case, the all-time record will go...

~75F and rain off and on all day.  The plants like it, but I'm definitely not getting any weeding done during the week.

We picked up some good rains yesterday and so far today.  Temperatures yesterday stayed well below average here and, while, warmer today, it is still well below average for a change.  A rain cooled 77F and super humid at the moment here.

After one heck of a long wait, and watching almost everyone around the house get dumped on / thrashed by earlier storms all afternoon, finally receiving our first solid rain of this summers monsoon season. Currently 78F and expected to stay in the 77-80F range tonight. Would be the first night it has been below 90F in 6 days. Only anticipating 94- 96 tomorrow, a welcome break from the 109-113 stretch we've had.  

30%+ rain / storm chances are supposed to hang on thru late tomorrow / early Thursday before there might be another break, not that we need one. In spite of applying extra water thus far this summer, front yard looks thirsty. Between this summers extended heat and late start to the rains, ..and a big population boom of Pallid Winged Grasshoppers ( same species swarming Las Vegas atm ) what Kallstroemia ( AZ Summer Poppy )  have managed to germinate for the summer, and my Sacred Datura i planted back in May look rough. Other stuff just needs a good soaking.   Hoping to see at least 1" or more of rain soak into the ground before this episode moves out. 

For now, a nice evening for enjoying some rain and frisky storms..

It has been hot to very hot with high humidity and erratic rainfall, though we have had some beneficial rainfall in the past 2 days.  Rain chances are high for the next 5 days.

17C (62F) and pouring with rain here, at 2pm.

This summer has been absolutely atrocious for us. At least compared to last year. I mean this summer has felt more like spring or autumn here, with lots of rain and cool temps. Minus a brief hot spell in late July, where it reached 38C (100F), the rest of the summer has been absolute crap. It started cool and wet and has ended cool and wet. Hardly ideal for growing palms, exotics, fruit and veg. I would say it is the second worst summer that I can remember in my lifetime, possibly even the worst ever, although summer 2013 was about as bad as you can get. 

I have just lost a bunch of tomato plants to late season blight, something that I have never, ever experienced before in August here. Prior to this year, I have never had a blight outbreak earlier than say late September / early October, yet it has struck in mid August this year, completely decimating my heirloom tomatoes. No doubt it is a result of all the rain that has fell consistently over the past 3 months. And to top it off, we also had a bad storm here last week, with 90mph winds, which is almost unheard of during summer here. It wrecked my sunflowers and veg plants, causing extreme damage. And the Cocos Nucifera's fronds were battered and torn. 

When you compare last year's average high temperatures, to this year's average highs, it's like looking at two different climates... 

2018

May - 22.3C

June - 26.7C 

July - 29.1C 

August - 23.6C

 

2019

May - 18.4C 

June - 21.9C

July - 24.6C

August - 21.3C

 

Can't wait for next year now. I've had enough of 2019 already and this crappy summer. Next year has to be better, surely...

I'll take soggy this time of year for sure.  Though Polk County has certainly had more than needed.  In contrast, we had less than I want to say around 5" in July.

UK_Palms, that must have been some really serious winds to tear up the fronds on a Cocos of any size.

96F at 11.30am. It’s been a very dry summer here on the upper FL Gulf coast this year with just some short 5 minute shower occasionally. 

We do get rain clouds to the North of us, but they  always scatter when they get near the Gulf. At least they offer a pretty sight, lol. Captured these pics a couple of days ago.

Well its snapped the emerging frond in half basically, so the top half of the frond now hangs down loosely. The damage appears to be getting worse each day, due to the elements, so I suspect that top half of the frond will fall off entirely, sooner or later. And it's definitely due to the force of the wind snapping it. We had the remnants of a tropical storm hit us, hence the 90mph winds.

I'll post a pic of the damage when I get round to it.

90mph?  That is Cat.1 hurricane wind speed.  What happened?

Well fastest I saw in my location was 75mph. Parts of Cornwall saw winds of 90mph though. They had to cancel the annual surfing festival in Newquay, a day in advance, specifically due to the dangerous winds and storm threat. The southwest got battered by it. I am in the southeast though, so I was spared the absolute worst of it.  

I buttoned down the hatch and moved a lot of my potted palms and veg plants indoors. Lost a bunch of my biggest sunflowers, despite using 2 heavy duty stakes on each one. Several tomato and pepper plants snapped in the ground. A Musa Basjoo banana plant destroyed. My Cocos Nucifera's frond snapped. Trachycarpus fronds tattered and snapped off. Numerous pots blown over. And 4 of my neighbours fence panels down in my back yard. Plus the power/electric grid went off for 3 hours.

I've never had a storm like that in August before. It's not uncommon to get them in October/November, or during the winter, but never wind and storms like that in August. On the same date in 2003, we were in the midst of a 100F heatwave and drought. But this August, we've had a mini cyclone, record breaking rain and mostly cool days. :rant:

Rain?,  cooler temps??..  Whats that?,  lol..  were enjoying mid June heat / less than 20% humidity, part 2 here atm.  ( Thank you persistant troughing off the Pac. Northwest all summer )

110f yesterday, 114f today.. aand probably tomorrow. Could be worse, was 118f in Bullhead City. Supposed to reach 117 in Palm Springs tomorrow.  Might back off to 108 / 109f for the weekend, then another "wonderful" stretch of 110- 116f heat next week. We've already blown past our " average" # of 110+ days per year so far. 

.50" or so is all the rain tha has fallen at the house, ( 1 event, back at the end of July ) What storms we've had haven't generated much dust so far this year though.. kinda weird. Sky Harbor has only received .27" wayy below what is typical for this point in a typical Monsoon season. 

Front yard still looks thirsty, despite providing extra water this year. Pulled all the summer poppies that managed to come up ( destroyed by chinch bugs.. early for that btw, usually show up in October as the plants are starting to die off,  and our grasshopper invasion of late  )

While it can change, ( unlikely ) Monsoon (  Non- soon ) 2019 may end up in the top 10 driest here and, after some optimistic shenanagens from the GFS earler on ( was showing a  tropical storm moving up the Gulf of CA./ west side of Baja into S. Cal., healthy Easterly waves from another ghost storm moving west across Texas after hitting Corpus Christi as a cat 3, etc late last week / over the weekend )  we might not see any decent rain chances ( decent for here = 30% this time of year) until the start of September, if current model runs pan out.  Longer term " future casts" are a mess.  By this time next month, our rainy season is pretty much in the bag.  Very stark contrast to last year here and across most of the state, even where they've seen better rain near the AZ / Mexico border in the southeastern part of the state.  Pretty dry rainy season further south in Sonora / Sinaloa from what i have heard also.

Nothing too remarkable here on a balmy Darwin morning.....other than the astoundingly low Dew Point of -6.2* for a coastal city at 12*S
Extremey dry and strong winds in the last week or so has raised the bushfire risks, in fact we have had several days of Total Fire Bans in the region in recent days.
Measured temp of 24.3c  ( 75.7f )at 10.10am, a DP of -6.2* and an apparent or feels like temp of 15.6c ( 60f ) !
And a chill in the wind.... not often I'm wearing a jacket at 10 in the morning in Darwin !
Back to normal next week.... we have our first 35c ( 95f ) of the season forecast next week, so our lovely tropical winter is just about over.
