55F will be quite cool for May, but far from unheard of.  Orlando's all-time record May low is in the 40s and for June is 53F.

86F and a bit humid ( 48 deg Dew point / 28% humidity ) just after 9:30am.  An interesting end to an interesting weekend.. after another hot week..   Monsoon-ish like atmospheric set up brought the seasons first warm season thunderstorms, moist, dusty outflow breezes, and higher than normal Pwats ( Precipitable water content values ) to parts of the state yesterday, overnight, and possibly on and off through today.. While most storms that have occurred, outside the mountains, have been dry, a shower passing over the area was just strong enough to provide a brief but decent may shower while watering stuff this morning.. This same disturbance.. or combination of... was also responsible for the showers/ virga that passed over the San Diego/ Inland Empire area yesterday. If only it would do this once a week, until Monsoon season kicks in:rolleyes:

Current cool down continues for the upcoming week.. 94-97F today, upper 80s to about 92F both Wednesday/ Thursday.. Lows pull back to the low/mid 60s for both days.  Possible we stay below the 100F mark until Saturday or Sunday. Mixed signals beyond that..

Interesting tweet put out by our local NWS earlier.. First time i have seen them post something like this since moving here in March 2016.

Post speaks for itself but to take it up a notch, in extreme cases, as occurs in Oklahoma, Texas and other areas of the Central Plains every so often, a "Heat Burst" can raise the temperature from the mid 70s to the upper 90s/ low 100s in under 20-30 minutes as it unfolds. Winds that often accompany these events can sometimes exceed 50-70mph as well. Another weird fact, these events only occur during the night/ early morning hours.

Currently 80F at 11am here. My two stations in my garden are both showing 81F, so I’m expecting anywhere between 85-90F come late afternoon.

Probably not, although northeast Surrey going towards London is already showing mid-high 80’s F before 1pm.

Clear skies as well, so it could exceed 90F in some places come 4-5pm. Sunset isn’t until 9pm.

My two stations are currently reading 83F and 82F. I reckon I’ll max out at 85-86F. We’ll have to see.

A hot, and breezy.. but cooler ( and quieter ) day today.  Currently 100F compared to a few degrees warmer before the dust and rain rolled in yesterday.

While storms did form in pretty much the same areas of the state today as yesterday, everything that got close enough to the valley collapsed well before it could try and move in. Most on-going activity is now is confined to the mountains out east, and moving away/ collapsing.

Tomorrow may be more interesting, especially considering the impressively big storms that exploded in the mountains just south of the border over Sonora this afternoon.  The collapse of those storms could set up a better profile for storms across both areas tomorrow, especially since the flow of moisture moving north from Mexico isn't going anywhere for the next couple days. Models continue to hint at something ( likely elevated showers/storms, if they develop ) tomorrow over this part of the state also.  Welcome to June..

Yes, sorry. It's not a Stevenson thermometer, so it may be 10C off..

Oh I wouldn't have thought so... they are accurate for you, on your device at home, as long as you believe it, who cares what others think ? I'm sure you have compared with the nearest 'official' Met Service device.... there may or may not be differences of a few degrees. Its an an indication of what you experience... but it wont go into the Met Service archives unless it is recorded in WMO sanctioned and calibrated recording devices. There are strict siting and instrumentation  protocols re official recordings and most ( not all ) home stations don't quite cut it. Under WMO guidelines, many historical records are now under scrutiny. The former world record extremes at Death Valley, Libya and Australia have been struck off as not being recorded with standard instrumentation.
Again its a bit of a misnomer for someone half way round on the other side of the planet to comment on someone else's climate/weather... fair dinkum... how would we know ?
But the thing is in the weather enthusiast world/ meteorological world, it is generally recognised that that 'home' weather stations are a guide, and not particularly accurate on extreme heat days when compared to 'official' sites. Now of course there are canyons and gullies and mountain tops and coastal locations that differ from the AWS Stevenson Screen at the local Airport. But it is a proven phenomena that on extreme heat days temps are generally 'spatially coherent' ie, not a huge difference. A generalization yes indeed.
Even minimum temps.... so in a Stevenson Screen the thermometers are 4' or 1.2m from the ground. Grass temps and screen temps can differ by up to 5c ( 8f ) so for example a frost warning is issued in Alice Springs if there is a forecast of a 5c  ( 8f )minimum. It may well be freezing at grass level.
I have a home weather station.... I just don't quote its readings because I have an Australian BOM Automatic Weather Station only 700m from my house, so can compare rainfall and max/min temps and can see the differences re accuracy. On a normal hot day ( 350 days a year ) my station reads 1c to 2c  higher than the BOM site. And as a dedicated stats/weather nerd I like accuracy.

Alex makes a valid point though. This entire thread becomes redundant and pointless if we aren’t allowed to post our own recordings, or if they’re seen as nonsense for being supposedly false, when the pretence of this entire thread is about what our current yard temperatures are. Not what our nearest ‘official’ station is...

I have been pulled up before for posting my temperature recordings, even from 3 different sources together to back it up. I totally accept that they aren’t official recordings, but who actually has legit $10,000 weather stations in their yard? Nobody. I have two sensors and providing they are both within .2 of a degree of each other, I take that recording as my actual temperature. Irrespective of what others think. 

Anyway, it’s a cold one here today now that the low-pressure Atlantic front is over us. It’s only 64F at 3pm here. No rain yet today though. Sunny intervals.

86F so far today, intermittent cloud cover preventing 90’s. Heat index in the 90’s however.

Thunderstorms last night brought some much needed rain, it’s been bone dry otherwise.

We had tons of rain last week.  Could have been anywhere from 4-8" but I didn't keep reliable track.  The last several days have been mostly overcast with not much rain until we did get some overnight and we are getting more this afternoon.

I have been putting my plants that I have been too lazy to repot into faster draining soil on the inner part of the porch so they don't stay to wet and rot.

Have had 4 separate downpours so far today with a comfortable air temperature of 73F.  It was definitely needed after the last couple of days were overcast with only a sprinkle of rain just enough to put mist on the windshield.

Tropical season has begun. At 11 PM, 80F with a dew point of 75F. Orlando international had lots of 79F dewpoints this weekend but didn't see any reports of 80F. Still super humid and windows have been fogged for 3 days now. Here is a pic of the tornado as it was over Lake Conway. missed me by a mile.

Breezy to windy at times though the day, but can't ask for a better day -at the start of June- for the Low desert.. Phoenix only reached 90F.. Chandler muni ( local Airport, where the official reading for Chandler is taken ) topped out at 88F.  Most neighborhood stations ranged between 87-92F around 5PM. Humidity crashed to around 3%, and Dew Points this afternoon dropped to as low as -4 deg, about as low as both can go here in AZ once a very dry front swept through this morning.

Current temp ( Downtown Chandler -WxU station- ) is 78F. Lows tonight should easily bottom out in the low 60s area -wide with areas of the east valley located further outside the 202 loop ( Queen Creek, San Tan Valley ) could enjoy 57-59F lows.. 

Heat builds thru the rest of the week, but nothing crazy.. May avoid adding to the total of the 110-110+ Highs of late for now.. No more 80+ overnight lows either, unless something changes.

80F at 11:51PM MST.. Couple more days of the low 100s before the wheels come off next week.  Current read of the PNA says it all.. Trending strongly positive, and may reach quite a bit higher right around the 1st of July,  which typically = HOT HOT HOT  for the west in coming days this time of year..

After lots of hints, looks like various models are finally zero-ing in on a big heat wave for the west as we round out the month, and start July.. While things can ( and likely will ) continue flipping back and forth between runs, Pretty certain it is nothing but highs in the 110-110+ range past Monday, with a high potential of reaching 115F by the end of next week here.. 

Tonights' 00Z GFS is an absolute sizzler for both AZ and CA around / after the 26th. While likely over doing the heat, lots of 112+ readings show up across the low deserts, and up and down the Central Valley at this time.. and both the 3rd and 4th of July feature readings possibly reaching/ exceeding 120F south of the Salton Sea in CA.. Meanwhile, 90+ heat looks to reach toward the coast across Southern CA, maybe up in the Bay Area as well.. If..  the suggested forecast verifies, going to be quite the torch fest of a 4th of July for everyone..

At the same time, the first good surge of moisture -of our Monsoon season- starts building into AZ from the south and east.  Watching the Pacific as well. Each GFS run today has featured some degree of tropical activity getting going.. and moving remnant moisture north toward CA, AZ, & NM.

With 4 large fires on going across the state atm, will be interesting to see which day ( or days ) wind direction brings dense plumes of smoke, which have reached across N. Colorado over the last few days, back toward Phoenix, over Tucson, and/ or west toward Southern California.

There are now 3 sizable blazes which broke out across west Central New Mexico also which will likely add to smokey skies across our area if.. or, ...more likely when, sometime next week,  winds start blowing all that smoke toward the west / northwest, vs moving all of it toward the east/ northeast as they have this week.. 

The bigger concern of course is for areas directly impacted by the both the Bush fire, occurring just N.E. of Phoenix, currently burning toward communities in the Tonto Basin, just below the Rim in that area of the state, ..and the communities of Summerhaven and Mt. Lemmon.. atop Mt. Lemmon down in Tucson which are under immediate threat by the Bighorn fire, which is burning in their direction atm.  Same area was destroyed by another large fire that occurred there in 2003 ( Aspen Fire ). 

Going to be a tough end to June.. Hopefully what rainfall is suggested around/ after the start of July materializes because neither of those fires, and all others occurring here ..and across the region won't be fully stopped until snuffed out by the power of water, lots of it..

Heard the first, Likely Apache ( Citrus ) Cicadas of the season earlier this afternoon, and the Metallic Blue Mud-dauber Wasps are out looking for spiders.. Both are sure signs that stormy humid monsoon relief isn't too far away..  Can't come soon enough..

86F at 10:27PM MST 108F tomorrow.  110's return Monday..  maybe some moderation by the weekend, depending how the currently chaotic forecasts for beyond Saturday work out.. Absolutely no confidence in ANY model right now..



..To that end, i make this request, to the GFS..   Quit it!,  lol  ..NO ONE likes A TEASE!!  :mrlooney:  ( See below )

....On the other hand, would be the perfect way to " Ring in the season",   IF  it actually happened, lol

..'Guess we'll just have wait and see:   **Excuse the sub-par screen shots..**

Yea, This happens every year....
