70 degrees, Humidity about 200%, Dewpoint about 150, feels like sauna combined with steambath

OK, so that's an exaggeration.  Maybe.

There has been a lot of talk about snow ratios, but has there been any mention of grass ratios?  An inch and a half of rain seems to yield about four inches of sudden grass growth.

Quite the "April" day here. Never got above 77, and that briefly. Mostly 66-71 all day as "thundershowers" moved through followed by sunshine. Beautiful growing day.  :grin:

100 by Wednesday.   :-(

Something kind of weird.

Despite most days being upper 80s to mid 90s and night rarely falling below 70, the pool water is feeling cooler than you might expect.   Only thing I can figure is the lack of direct Sun (cloudy most days for several hours) and the 2-3" of rainfall cooling it off.

Just had a thunderstorm blow through.  Very little rain but high winds and a VERY nice temperature drop.  Went from 91F to 73F in about 45 minutes.  High wind gust was 35mph.  Sitting at 72F right now...skies are dark and still rumbling pretty good, but no rain to speak of...I've got the irrigation going in the garden.<sigh>

Third power outage in a week.

First two were more localized, with numbers of customers affected in the hundreds.  I was out for three hours the first time, two the second.  This one is across a few counties with over 9,000 affected.  Thinking this one might be an all nighter ... and beyond.

I'll be interested to see if the use the 'D' word for this storm.  It formed up in Illinois somewhere and is still moving down into Mississippi and Arkansas with what looks like considerable force.

I imagine when local meteorologists look back, it would fit the criteria for that. That line in North Dakota is also looking intense.

Just got power back, about 13 hours or so.  Generator did OK, but not great.

Still showing almost 5,000 not yet restored.

Currently 98 degrees. Wind avrg 26, gusts to 35.  Another reason why Western KS will never have population problems.  ;)

Know the feeling no chance for my area exploding in population either with -30 winter, occasional blizzard and 112 summer heat isn't exactly chamber of commerce weather. Summers however are generally really nice compared to high humidity areas.
How did you do for rain down yonder this month? We ended up 4.6" - 5.5" depending which part of town. Normal is just below 4" for June one of wetter months.
60% chance of severe tonight but really haven't had anything bad hail wise or wind locally yet. Knock on wood...
Our highest heat index so far this summer was yesterday low 100's. Mid 70's dewpoint ambient 91.

They gone and do'd it:

"Two rounds of severe thunderstorms occurred on Thursday, June 28. The first round during the midday hours was relatively minor. The more significant outbreak occurred during the evening hours, when a thunderstorm complex raced southward across southern Illinois and western Kentucky. Widespread wind damage occurred with this complex, which met the definition of a derecho. "

Okay, great, the heavy rains from last weekend got my town as well as Oklahoma City into  the drought free white area on the map.  Rainfall here for June so far is above average at 5.16".  Average is 4.32".  Extreme drought starts only three counties away, though.

Lawn June after 5+ inches rain at weather station. I never water this large section to prevent artificial conditions (truth no sprinkler system) and takes 2 days by hand.  Anyway it does yellow later if and when rain slows down, but always bounces back.

Alabama derecho last Thursday.  That was an intense storm system!!! https://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/2018/06/weather_service_says_thursdays.html

I'm located in Crenshaw County, south of Montgomery and west of Troy...I sure wish I had made a screen capture of the radar when the "wave" was entering Crenshaw...it was pretty well parallel with the coastline and very well formed and symmetrical.

Still showing almost 1,000 without power just within the service area of the utility I have.  No idea how many more are still out in other utility company areas.

I'm hoping for at least a sprinkle somewhere in our area tomorrow.  We're currently at 29 days with rain somewhere in the forecast area.  There is little to no chance for tomorrow (Saturday) which would end the streak.  After tomorrow, chances escalate for the next week or more.  I'd hate to see such a streak broken by one day.
