Today, like the rest of the past week there hasn’t been much to say about the weather. Our last measurable rain in Otsego was on the 7th with .70 of an inch and .97 so far this month. We have had to water the gardens and grass the past few days, one of the reasons being the persistent ant problems we have had this summer. I had to put down another application of granular bug killer yesterday on the lawns and flowers, I don’t like putting it on the garden because I don’t want it on the food we will be eating.
We have had ant issues in the past, but not like we have had this year. We have pretty much kept them out of the house they are however running rampant all over the yard. I have to wonder if they are becoming resistant to the poisons used in the past.
This will be a hot and humid week with highs near 90° every day, quite a reversal from June. Today appears to be the most tolerable with slightly less humid air in place. We have ample moisture streaming up from the gulf for the humid air to increase the rest of the week though not much in the way of systems to set off any wide spread rain. Night time lows will be in the low 70s.
Rain percentages are at 20 to 30% Monday through Friday with the best chances on Wednesday as tropical storm Barry moves northward into the Ohio Valley. Latest model runs have brought the system further northward – as of now the best chances of ran from Barry will be across the southern counties.
