The Weather Topic


Recommended Posts

It's been a bizarre year weather-wise. It's mid-June, and there's still snow on the mountain. We normally get our first taste of desert summer at the start of June, but instead it has been mild and humid. It looks like the heat is coming next week.

Here, it’s overcast every day right now and sometimes cleared by 1pm, often it doesn’t clear at all. In my 4 years of living in California, this is definitely the coldest, cloudiest, wettest year yet. 

Lucky!

Boy, oh boy, have we been having insane weather.  It rained almost nonstop for two weeks.  Vermont has had lots of flooding, some areas worse than during Hurricane Irene. This a frame from a video I got of lighting striking upwards over a rainbow with a greenish-yellow evening sky.

"Flooding"? That's a new word to me, what does it mean?

Google says it is were water covers normally dry land, so is that were it rains really hard and water runs down the creeks?

Seriously though, I hope y'all are okay and not in danger from flooding or the rough weather.

We're good so far, although there is still rain and thunderstorms in the forecast.  The last big storm didn't hit this side of Vermont as hard apparently.  Very glad we patched the hole in the roof during the drought!

I hope the folks here in southern California (especially along the coast) stay safe with Hurricane Hilary on its way.

Up here in Vegas, there's a lot of rain and potential flooding predicted.

We should be fine along the coast, the inland counties will get most of the hit. We’ll be carefully scouring for frigatebirds the whole time, that’s for sure.

It's almost a two-hour drive for me (on a work day, nonetheless), but there have been several species of storm-petrel reported here in Clark County, pushed inland by Hilary. Those are both first records for the state.

Idalia pushed through Wednesday night.  September arrived and the temps in central sC have dropped ten degrees in the day, 15 at night.

Around DC on Tuesday the high will be around 98 degrees. That's warm even for July (average high is 90). For September, it's rather uncommon to downright rare. Ugh.

What could this bring inland?

Always a bittersweet thing to see these hurricanes forming. Knowing firsthand how destructive these can be, even inland, is always scary, but I can’t help but get excited about the birds.
