    • that was just now, is it the end of the world?
    • Good morning! Another very warm day is in store for today and tomorrow and Thursday and Friday.... eh... you get the idea. The southeast is still under the influence of high pressure to our west, and that will act to minimize the afternoon and evening thunderstorms for a while. You can also see that Georgia is mostly in the 70 degree range this morning under clear skies.    At 5:30 AM, the lower 48 states had a max temp of 105.1º and a low of 22.5º. Lots of other good stats here in this image.   Our high temperatures will be running about 3-5 degrees above normal today.   Despite the hot temps here, no records are expected, although out over TX and the desert southwest a few may be broken.     Again, nothing to talk about, so I''ll end it here! 🙂 Hope everyone has a great Tuesday and stay cool!  
    • Good morning! Don't know about you, but for me, this month seems to be flying by! We're still in a NW flow pattern and that is going to keep us hot and dry for the next three days. Notice the warm temperatures all the way to Maine on the east coast and in to Canada in the central part of the US.   Again, it's our normal summertime weather that really requires no explaining from me, so I'll let the NWS do the "splaning" instead. 🙂   Here are the daily high temps for this work week.   That's it. Nothing going on, nothing to talk about. Summer doldrums! Enjoy the weather and have a great Monday!

    • I wouldn't mind enduring a little thunder and wind if the rain will cool us off a bit. Friday it got all scary-looking and thundery here, it thundered twice, there was a handful of big fat raindrops, and that's all she wrote. I don't like being teased.  😉
