  1. Lost weekend 8/11-8/12 OBS

    You guys up in PA are getting a taste of what we had down here a few weeks ago in July. Never ending deluge. Bring out the slickers and galoshes.
  2. Temperature/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    The lowest projected dewpoint on Wunderground's 10-day forecast for my area is 64F next Friday. I hate August.
  3. A couple of trees came down last night in our area and knocked out power for a few hours. There are downed trees and wires here and there throughout the Baltimore area. Detours and delays galore.
  4. Great work compiling these numbers! I'm going to guess that .27 at Aberdeen is underdone. The axis of the precip has been largely through Baltimore and to the west, but 0.27 at Aberdeen and 2.33 at Martin Field? Wow! I don't have an accurate rain gauge at the moment, but with the volume, frequency and persistence of downpours at the Schmidt house and downed trees nearby we must be close to the official 9.59 measured at BWI.
  5. Temperature/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    It's been a dry three weeks here on the lee side of the piedmont in MD. We completely avoided the hit-and-miss deluges last week. The last precipitation greater than a tenth of an inch dates to June 20. And with temps at their annual peak, lawns are browning. It also appears that any rain forecast to fall in the offing continually gets pushed out. I remember reading a little while back of a pattern shift around the third week of July. Are the global teleconnections still looking that way?
  6. A lovely 89/80/75% slash line here in Baltimore for an HI of 106. Still in the soup. Showers and storms all around, but nothing falling in the Inner Harbor.
  7. Oddly enough, I just received a notification on my cell that NWS has posted a warning.
  8. From the LWX Page: https://www.weather.gov/lwx/WarningsDefined#Excessive Heat Warning And now we know. :-) Excessive Heat Watch An Excessive Heat Watch is issued when there is a potential for the heat index value to reach or exceed 110 degrees (east of the Blue Ridge) or 105 degrees (west of the Blue Ridge) within the next 24 to 48 hours. Excessive Heat Warning An Excessive Heat Warning is issued when the heat index value is expected to reach or exceed 110 degrees (east of the Blue Ridge) or 105 degrees (west of the Blue Ridge) within the next 12 to 24 hours. An Excessive Heat Warning may be issued for lower criteria if it is early in the season or during a multi-day heat wave. Heat Advisory A Heat Advisory is issued when the heat index value is expected to reach 105 to 109 degrees (east of the Blue Ridge) or 100 to 104 degrees (west of the Blue Ridge) within the next 12 to 24 hours. A Heat Advisory may be issued for lower criteria if it is early in the season or during a multi-day heat wave.
  9. 96/79/59 at the backyard station nearest my house. 96/79 = HI 114 96/59% = HI 115 That can't be right, can it? Of course, the inner harbor obs are 96/76/52 for HI Calcs of 110/109, so I suppose its within the margin of error.
  10. Low last night was a balmy 77. Ugh. Even when I know this type of heat is coming, it still manages to sneak up on me.

    Very windy last night, but just enough rain to avoid having to water the garden. On the downside, we lost power when a downed tree took out some power lines. Wasn't restored until after midnight. Had a family camp out in the cool of the basement.
  12. Temperature/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    The time of year has arrived where for the next eight weeks, the forecast reads: Highs 86-95, lows 65-75. Occasional days with warmer temps, rare days with cooler ones. Can't wait for the first rush of northwesterly cool breezes in September.
  13. If this is remotely close to accurate - pause for laughter - I can get behind these departure from normal predictions for the core of summer heat.
