Mos Def. Noticeably higher humidity w/ greyish clouds above. 20% humidity @ 105 close to 5 PM. A cool weekend with a chance for a high under 90 on Sunday. 

 

Plus maybe doubling the Monsoon-to-date rain total (less than 0.5"), lol but welcome.

Lets hope..

..And then there was  ..the potential, ...remote as it may be... of a legit tropical storm smashing into Santa Barbara by Monday.. 

..At least on the 18Z GFS run..

885mb as it approaches San Diego..

You know ..there's a chance... too when Daniel Swain ( Climatologist / Weather West website )  mentions it..

Lookin' like  a fun weekend ahead,   Even if  this- specific-  scenario doesn't happen...

As an aside.. A correction.. Storm would be named Hillary, not Greg.. Moi' bad. 🤪

Congrats in joining the " Minimal rain so far " club..   Looked like the airport may have been getting some rain last night also, but apparently didn't receive a drop -again-, lol

A dry thunderstorm passed through Pinal county tonight.

Coulda, woulda, shoulda.

Just that kind of Monsoon period.

Not looking for much from Hilary. Time will tell.

Today felt SO humid. Dew point maxed out at around 24/25°C when the temperatures was between 25 and 30°C. Other than that nothing much has changed. My app showed heavy rain on the radar when there were only clouds. It's a bit weird as usually the app is extremely accuarte. All that passed through was a bar of clouds that went away in the evening. High was 32.2°C and a low of 24.4°C despite clear skies! 🌥️🌴:greenthumb:

We may miss out on  -any-  rain from the east side of Hilary, but Cloudy, Breezy, and 89F, w/ a dew point of 65 / Humidity of 46%  never felt so welcome..   Rain would also be nice too, of course.

Just fertilized the palms.

Waiting for that warm water coming up from the south.

Once in a lifetime event.

82F

Will wait until after the storm does its damage and the waters and wind subside before I fertilize.

Expecting top soil/mulch to be blown around and potential for serious wind damage to palms and trees. 
We are still looking at projected 39-73mph winds. And unlike the Santa Anna the winds will be moving in a much more dynamic pattern than what we are used to seeing in winter here.

Stay safe everyone!

The storm still really hasn’t hit cold water yet. Once it hits that 69 degree range just south of Cali it will help breaking down the winds.

Min of 71f/21.6c max of 85f/29.5c with 52% humidity in Paris. The max dew point was 72f. Friday was pretty warm with a high of 90.5f/32c with a 73f dew point.

A partly to mostly cloudy,  windy, and humid-hot 99F at 2:05PM ( D.P 62deg / Humidity 29% ) Quite a bit warmer than yesterday at this time.. Though w/ winds increasing, that is cutting into the heat a bit..

We'll see if we get any rain from a Baroclinic zone trying to set up on the n.e. side of Hilary's path, just east of Phoenix that is supposed to spur storm development this afternoon.. Quiet, but breezy / cloudy thru the afternoon otherwise..

Gusty winds much of the day. Temps climbing this afternoon  to an overcast 97 with higher still possible. Currently 32% humidity.

 

Zero rain. I may have felt a random drop or two but it appears there will be no measurable rain.

 

Hope everyone in the direct path is faring well.

"I stood slack jawed as the fat drops of rain fell. Unevenly at first, but then with a sudden rush and vigor as the wind whipped the palms around while thunder and lightning filled the sky. Surely enough the low spots on the ground began to fill with water - the clay soil unable to absorb the sudden rush of moisture. Gradually the wind abated and in the last bits of light for the day all one could see was the steady fall of rain. Beautiful, precious rain."

Got a bit of the same storms as they sped by, though they were already starting to dissipate by the time they reached my doorstep.. 

Regardless, it is 75F out ..So no complaints :greenthumb:..

Min of 63.1f/17.2c. Max of 85f/29.5c with 32% humidity in London today. The max uv was 6. The max dewpoint was 62f, which is right now. During the day the dewpoint was around 55f with a low of 52f. Nice sunny clear skies all day.  gfs runs are currently showing the start of September to have good weather though from Friday we will have a few cooler days around 22c due to winds from the North and low pressure.

The last couple of days the weather has been splendid with clear blue skies and much drier air. Today was pretty cloudy with a thunderstorm warning for the afternoon but nothing happened. Also my app has been wrong yet again with the rain radar. Highs always have been around 30°C. Today's high was 30.0°C flat. And a low of 18.4°C this morning. Weather seems to be changeing towards the weekend. ☀️🌴:greenthumb:

96 ant 10:31AM w/ a few clouds left over from Harold as what is left of it heads northeast into Colorado.

.. After a little craziness the last 10 or so days, ..it is " back to the basics " for a few days, as far as the weather forecast the rest of the week/ weekend  is concerned.. Looking like another 3 or 4 day heat wave should kick in starting tomorrow, before cooling off again later,  if the current forecast " thoughts " hold.. While we shouldn't, some parts of town ( Sky Harbor / downtown ) might add a record or two to this crazy summer's totals if it ends up a deg or two hotter over there Sunday, Monday, or Tues.

We are in the final week of Meteorological Summer, and sun angle will quickly start to slip as we head into September, so the " End of the un-ending 110s " is about on schedule.. This also means overnight lows will return to the... -far more comfortable- 70s soon..

Things could get interesting again sometime around / after mid-week, next week ..and could involve the leftover remnants of " Harold ",  and some from another potential disturbance passing nearby rotating clockwise back into AZ at that time.. This set up could also increase rain chances again in -at least- S. Cal around the same time.  ...We'll see.. 

No bigger " tropical " concerns on the maps -for now- ..Just some fairly typical, Pre- fall season weather ahead..

Another crazy hot day, thankfully the dew point was "only in the upper 60s". All of Houston is in stage 3 to stage 4 drought. Outer suburbs already enacted water restrictions, and City of Houston is going into effect this weekend.

0.0" from the recent tropical storm...everything is dying 😭. This is supposed to be the green part of TX with over 50" of rain...

A beautiful late winter day here in Perth, bright and sunny heading for a top of 26c, made all the better when you have the day off work and can spend it at the beach.

The worst summer ever continues....

New all time record high (109F) at Hobby Airport...only 40 miles +/- from the Gulf! 

Houston IAH ties the record 109F TWICE this week

Pretty much  the summary for all of us living west of US-27 this year as well.  Less than 3 inches of rain and plenty of trips over 100F.

The nights are still cold here, but at least it warms up during the day. The UV readings are beginning to pick up, getting to 10 now.

Today we were under a Watch and Act bushfire warning level. We've had smoke around for the past few days, especially last night and this morning. Just under a couple of klms away there were fires out of control. A lot of low flying aircraft over head.They'll be water bombers and monitoring planes. Latest news is they're bringing that fire under control and we're now at the Advice level. A number of other fires in the area are now under control. Ironically, in town they advising people to do their pre-cyclone season clean up. Meanwhile we're going to have fire weather conditions for at least another week.
Out of the frying pan into the  ......... stew pot?

1:53PM:  114F ..and counting..  atm,  w/ a dash of Dew Point ( 56 deg ) thrown in, just to up the roast factor a touch.

Another day of Heat ..extreme variety anyway  before ..hopefully.. a decent Labor Day Weekend / Start of Meteorological Autumn ahead.  Watching the suggested rain chances closely since ..if they follow the rule this summer and don't pan out as suggested, they may be the last for awhile ..as it looks as we head into September atm.

While a few areas of town have seen some actual rain in Aug, it has been anemic -at best- in most areas locally, and across the state.  Sky Harbor has only received 0.06"  -for the entire season-  They miss out on -any- rain chances this week, and things trend completely dry thru the rest of the month ahead, this could be the driest Monsoon Season on record.   ..We'll see what happens.  Right now, after this coming weekend, GFS looks DRY thru the 13th locally, if not across 95% of the state..  Is what it is this year..

For what it is worth, overnight lows might actually start to trend in the right direction ..giving everything a break from the practically non-stop upper 80s / 90s.  This summer, any win ...is a win.


*** Checks again, ..just ticked up to 115F 🔥👎

The dry season (southern winter) is our fire season. Our last rain was a slight sprinkle early May. Since then it's just been hot, sunny and dry. Windy periods are our dangerous times, which is what we've been going through recently. Conditions were rated "Catastrophic". The centre of Noonamah is just a roadhouse, tavern and the rodeo grounds (usually 4 rodeos per year) plus outlying properties. Rodeo time is also one of the dangerous times and that was last weekend. People camp out near the grounds and often have campfires which they somehow forget to put out. But we overcame that problem a while back by carrying out controlled burns before rodeo time. We also have tourists come up for the dry season (escaping the winter down south). They don't want to pay camping fees in Darwin so they camp out bush. And what's camping out bush without a campfire? So we try to control burn around those areas as best we can. For the most part this works really well. But (and there's always a "but") in rural areas there's ride-on lawn mowers, tractor slashers, grinders and welders always being used. These are probably the biggest causes of fires these days. End of the dry season there are storms and lightning strikes become an issue. When the wet season (summer) sets in there's torrential rain and waterlogged ground.

However, down south that when they start to dry out, with their denser forests of far more flammable Eucalypts than ours. And so the cycle goes round.
