2024 severe weather!

Certainly not I, not where I am at anyway :) - that is one of the reasons I left KS so long ago (not the main reason, but a reason)

Average temp in June is 77* and average temp for yesterday was 78*. Yesterday we were 15* above that and today/tomorrow it will be 20* above that (real temp, not feels like).
It happens though, that's why they are average temps. A few years ago it was low 50's on for the high around the 4th of July.
 
We have 83 in the shade from the wireless thermometer on the porch, out in the sun it's 86 plus.

Time for iced coffee :cool:
My wife is at work trying out a cold brew filter thing that had been sitting in the fridge for 16 hrs.

I’ve already put down 1/2 gallon today. Probably will do another half today.
 
Probably a sign of the current state of life I’m in. Iced espresso for me. Done in 5 minutes start to empty cup;)

86 and dry today here 66% RH and 68 dew point. Pretty nice weather for here. Everyone further north stay cool!
 
I just took the dog for a walk but before that, I had three ice cold glasses of water. We had a small breeze when we started the walk but that didn't last long, it was nice when we finally made it back under some big white pines for some shade. I thought the deer fly would be bad but there wasn't very many of them today.
 
Mid 90s and off season. I just brought 1/4 of the wrestling team to practice. Open garage door bays and fans are the only cooling. That’s commitment.

2024 severe weather!

It is not unusual to be running my pellet stove several nights/early mornings until the end of June. It is unusual to be running the AC non-stop in June. It does happen, but rarely. We also set several records throughout the state in the last 2 days and may set more today.

I don't like to run AC and will cool my house in early mornings by running window fans. I can usually, at the least, turn off the AC and just run a ceiling fan over me at night, . However, it looks like we won't get a break in the morning lows for another 7 days, so this is a very unusual stretch of weather for my little section of the country.

We started off at 74 this morning, we'll see what we end up at. The humidity is 79 with the dewpoint at 72.
 
I wish we’d get some rain. It’d jack up the humidity, but cool the house and ground down. I’m surprised we haven’t had thunderstorms.


The plus of this is I finally got the front spigot out back on the house this morning. My wife made the comment that she’s bringing gallons of water out to the hydrangeas every morning. I read between the lines that it was a clue to fix the spigot after the siding job this winter/spring.

It's a hot spell. People need to get over it, it's not the end of the world.

We're suppose to have some storms coming through this area around 5 p.m., parts of Vermont had some pretty good storms yesterday.

It's a weather thread. Part of what you do to get through a heat wave is complain about the heat! Same with snow storms and cold snaps.

Yesterday was the hottest here, we hit 99 for about an hour then it got cloudy. A couple towns an hour west of me got some serious thunderstorm damage or they're saying it was possibly a microburst. Trees down, cars crushed, etc. Just rain here.

We have a Severe Thunderstorm Watch on for a few areas including ours, 1 p.m. - 8 p.m.

We're getting some thunder with some hard rains which we need but from looking at the radar, it won't last long.

It looks like Sunday we might get some chitty weather.

More clouds than sun, breezy and humid with a drenching thunderstorm; thunderstorms can bring flooding downpours, hail and damaging wind gusts.
 
Supposedly tomorrow afternoon storms are in the forecast. That’s ok though. I kind of expect afternoon thunderstorms in summer.

...Several Rounds of Severe Thunderstorms Today..

An unusual confluence of high levels of moisture, wind shear, and
a strong forcing mechanism are supporting an enhanced risk of
severe thunderstorms across the North Country today. Isolated to
scattered thunderstorms are expected to start firing after 12 PM
with more numerous thunderstorms possible from convective lines of
thunderstorms through 9 PM. Strong, gusty winds in excess of 60
miles per hour and a few tornadoes are the primary threats today.
The risk of hail and flash flooding are also present, but not as
high of a threat as damaging winds or tornadoes.

Downed trees may lead to scattered power outages. Should tornadoes
form, be ready to act and go to a basement or interior of a sturdy
structure. Those in mobile homes should seek safer shelter.

Best advice is to have multiple ways to receive our alerts and be
ready to act in case a warning is issued for your location.
 
In fact, this map is somewhat unusual:
Stay safe.
