There are a lot of people who stop by here to check the weather and sometimes peek at that blog for the entertainment value and knowledge it provides. I was talking to a deacon I met yesterday from an area church and got a compliment on how easy it is to find weather info here without having to dig for it and for not having the annoying popups and ads many of the sites provide. We then got into a discussion on the state of the church which is one of my favorite topics – I won’t get into that much here except to say that I am a conservative Christian not a contemporary. It is hard to find a conservative church today, being a baby boomer this is the way I was brought up and still cling to in a modern world. This is a topic best left to a side bar or an about me page as we deal with the weather here, not Christian ethics and doctrines.
We are entering a warm period today with chances of rain and thunderstorms through Friday. Humidity levels will be on the rise and feels-like temps near 90°. Below are the model runs (NAM) through Friday for precipitation chances and temps.
As you can see there are several bouts of rain through Thursday until a cold front moves through Thursday night/Friday morning which is shown in the last frame of the futurecast.
The CPC gives us an 87% chance of above normal temps over the next 6 to 10 days and a 75% chance of above normal in the 8 to 14 day outlook. Normal temps are generally in the low 70s. Rainfall guesses are for equal chances of above/below/normal.
We had a few sprinkles last night – enough to call it a trace – our low for the day is 64 at 5am.
As a side note: this has been a banner year for butterflys which really like my wife’s flowers. We have a small pond in our side yard which is home to 12 frogs and our large goldfish, it is the most frogs I have seen gathered there. I have seen Katydids and a large praying mantis which I took on my hand and moved to a safer location away from the cats. I have heard a lot of reports of walking sticks this year.
