  1. Temperature/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. The U.S. Open

    This graphic is not at all surprising for anyone living in the Chesapeake Bay basin.
  5. The 40s club, you know you want in!!!

    A very mid-spring like 49. See you in September.
  6. 6/10-6/11 Heavy Rain Observations

    We have a raised bed and our tomatoes are weathering this weather with difficulty. Peppers are on life support begging for hot days. On the other hand, our squash, cukes, and peas are loving life.
  7. Meteorological Summer Banter Thread

    While the weather in the Mid-Atlantic is nothing if not variable, regardless of temperature it seems as though we've been stuck in a persistent gloom of cloud cover. I don't know where to locate percentage of cloud cover statistics, but I'd be willing to wager as a region, we're well above normal in the overcast category. Nonetheless, looks like the sun will shine today at some point.
  8. Looks like a lot of blue anomalies around the globe, except for ENSO regions and the Sargasso Sea. Overall not much change globally since last month - outslide the disappearance of the cold anomaly of the Pac NW and less cold intensity SW of South America - but I'm always curious of any potential influence on seasonal outlooks.

    Just got back from my lunchtime walk around the Inner Harbor. Yuck. Give me a dp comfortably under 65, or give me death.
  10. Lawn/Garden/Golf Thread

    Here goes nothing. We bought our house from a elderly woman who lived there for 60 years. Needless to say, the lawn and landscaping has required a lot of work. Now that we've got our planting beds in good shape and a raised bed garden going, I've turned my attention to the lawn. We've got zoysia which is typically still turning from brown to green this time of year, but after spreading some lime and fertilizer and receiving some timely rain, our grass is thick and green. There's just one thing, prior to this week's deluge the ground was hard as a rock. I've been meaning to aerate for the past several years and was going to finally do it this spring. Unfortunately, the timing just hasn't worked out. All this is leading up to my question. Have I missed my window? Once the lawn dries out, can I aerate in late May or should I just wait until fall? TIA, any and all.
  11. May 14-19 Neverevereverever Ending Rain OBS & Pcpn Totals

    I remember having a run similar to this in June 2015 because our roof was leaking and I couldn't find the source. That being said 4.21 IMBY since the sky opened Monday evening. New roof, so no leaks this year. Still, make it stop.
  12. Those numbers were from the station in the Inner Harbor, a few blocks away from my office. Not sure about the rain totals here. I live 6 miles north of the city and while we got some rain, we skirted the downpours that afflicted areas S and W. Didn't check my gauge this morning to catch the total.
  13. 87/72 here in Baltimore. Which is really just an excuse for me to say I'm done with 70+ dews for the rest of the summer. And it's only May 15.
  14. If this pattern of short, occasional thrusts into the 90s continues through the summer, I'd be okay with a predominant pattern of mild with middling dewpoints. Be nice to get some steady rain on occasion though.
  15. The 90s Club June 17th-19th. Tom Cheering It On.

    Just noting it was off that my house in the burbs is warmer than the concrete and asphalt jungle in the Mt. Vernon neighborhood of Baltimore. Within statistical norms, though.
