Our forecast high today is supposed to be 77 with lots of sunshine.  Won't be long before the grass is turning green and we will be mowing again.

You can come practice on mine, Jim. Although mine needs mostly a weedeater as it is on hillsides.
Today will be slightly cooler than yesterday. The wind is supposed to kick in also at some point.

Post by: Jim on Mar 17, 2014, 09:35:50 AM
They were correct with the forecast for rain on Sunday and Monday.  We woke to rain on Sunday and it rained off and on all day.  We ended up with about .29 inches.  Raining a light mist this morning on my way to work and it has continued so far.  The temperatures have gone from a high of about 60 at 1:00 AM to 43 with a wind chill of 39.

We are definitely having some "changing" weather this year!

Post by: sunsoaker on Mar 17, 2014, 02:34:32 PM
We've had 3.5" in the last 24 hours. Some areas around us had almost 5". Glad it is supposed to be out of here by tomorrow. Right now it is still drizzling. We had 2 buildings catch fire yesterday (1 someone's home, and 1 a condo on the beach) due to lightening strikes. Last  24 hrs have been nasty.

We have storms moving in. Luckily later than first predicted. No rain for the trip.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: Jim on Apr 19, 2014, 01:44:50 PM
Rain and more rain.  We had an inch or more yesterday and another 1/2 inch since midnight.  It started sprinkling about 2:00 yesterday, steady rain about 4:00 and rained off and on most of the night.  It was rough unloading and loading at karaoke last night but we had help so that was nice.

Overcast today with lots of standing water.  I'll need to get out later and get the leaves out of the drainage ditches so it will drain faster.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: sunsoaker on Apr 19, 2014, 07:47:38 PM
Our rain ended late yesterday. The rivers around here are dealing with hitting flood stages. Luckily no river near me. Has been cool and overcast/dreary all day. Tomorrow the sun is supposed to come out and be near 80.

Was gorgeous today, sunny and hot with a nice breeze to keep you from melting.  The rain storms are coming though.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: sunsoaker on Apr 30, 2014, 07:26:36 AM
Yes they are. We are having seriously bad storms as I type this, and are under a tornado watch.

Keep safe. We have heavy, hot winds and are under a fire watch.

Looks like most of the rain and storms stayed south of us this time.  I saw where Pensacola got 20" of rain.  I would need a boat to get out of the house if we got that much rain.  Hope Barb and folks in the panhandle of Florida weathered this storm as well as they have previous ones.

Today's high was 93 w/index close to 100. Hot!
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: Jim on Jun 10, 2014, 02:25:02 PM
Already 95 at the house with a heat index of 106. 

The pool water was 84 yesterday so it should be just about to where Dianna likes it today.  I may have to put the flower return in to shoot some water up in the air to cool it down.

Supposed to have thunder storms moving in tomorrow and cooling off a bit.

that was what we had today as well jim, but we aren't supposed to get more than a 5* break with the storms coming... :hot:
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: sunsoaker on Jun 10, 2014, 10:15:57 PM
It was cloudy and muggy today. Was kinda drizzling when I took the dog out. Either that or the mugginess is so thick it's dripping off the trees. Very possible. Supposed to have rain tomorrow.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: Jim on Jun 11, 2014, 09:32:20 AM
Forecast for us is rain today.  We did finish up cutting the grass yesterday after work.  It had cooled off just enough that it wasn't terribly uncomfortable.  60% chance of rain today and some storms possible.  83 is the current temp with 63% humidity.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44

Just a sprinkle or two at the house but it really rained hard in Sumter where I work.  Supposed to be more of the same today. 
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: sunsoaker on Jun 12, 2014, 02:26:09 PM
After a couple of short down pours this morning, it has cleared up, the sun is shining and it is 90+. Hot.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: Jim on Jun 13, 2014, 11:16:36 AM
Not much rain so far and it's cooled off quite a bit.  Yesterday when I left the office it was 84.  When I got home is was 74.  It's only a 45 minute drive but the temps dropped that much in that time.

It's been cooling off so much at nights I think you can see the grass grow.   :Groaner:

We finished mowing on Tuesday evening and it looked like it needed mowing again this morning.  I'm going to try and wait till next week though so I can get a few other things done around the house this weekend.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: sunsoaker on Jun 13, 2014, 02:01:19 PM
It got really dark and was thundering but no rain and it has lightened up. It is only 85 here too. We will get rain before it is all over with though
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: Jim on Jun 16, 2014, 09:37:40 AM
We had a late afternoon shower yesterday and it was hot and muggy before.  Once the shower moved through the temps dropped and a gentle breeze made it much cooler.  

This week they are saying we may hit triple digits.  They are forecasting a high of 99 on both Thursday and Friday with a heat index of 5 to 6 higher.  Drink lots of water!
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44

Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: Jim on Jun 18, 2014, 11:08:30 AM
It got a little windy last night but so far no thunder storms.  They keep saying 20% each day but I think they do that when they just don't know.  I hope it holds off for a few more days so we can get the grass mowed.  We will start that tonight after work and then finish it up after work tomorrow night.

It has been hot though.  It's 87 now and 60% humidity.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: Tina on Jun 18, 2014, 12:13:40 PM
Yes, you folks were all in a red swatch on the map for heat and humidity. Keep safe.
Our heat is supposed to set in this week. I'd prefer the more middle temps we have had. Cool and overcast in the mornings, burn off to upper 70's daily. 
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44

Hi William. I have missed you.
I live in the desert in the middle of a drought. I don't really have a lot of weather to report. Most of us tend to just stick a sentence into a post in the lounge.
Today it is cool (under 80*) and overcast. Wind may kick up today. That is always worrisome in a drought situation.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: sunsoaker on Oct 18, 2014, 06:41:35 PM
Got to mid-80s here today but with low humidity, its nice.

A little overcast. I need to put new batteries into my weather station thing. I know I am supposed to put either the outdoor portion or indoor portion first to make sure it works correctly. But I cannot remember which one.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44

Currently 60° Will get to upper 70s today. This is the time of year where we get 20 t0 30 degree spreads between the lows and highs.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: Tina on Oct 26, 2014, 02:06:07 PM
Yep, definitely layer wearing weather. Got to begin peeling it off but keep it close because you will be needing it again. We began today in the mid 50's.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: sunsoaker on Oct 26, 2014, 05:03:28 PM
yea, we began our day med 50s too but didn't get up until 9. lol by then it had warmed a bit. lol
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: Jim on Oct 27, 2014, 10:21:10 AM
As for changing batteries; normally you would want to change the transmitter first so that when you put new ones in the receiver it finds the signal rather quickly.

Was 48 here this morning and up to 68 now.  By the end of the week they are calling for frost!  We'll see.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: Tina on Oct 27, 2014, 01:02:04 PM
Thanks, Jim. I thought you would know.
This week is to be mostly cool nights and moderate days. They ae saying Halloween is going to be cool and nice but next weekend includes a 4 letter word. Rain. I'll believe it when I see it.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: sunsoaker on Oct 27, 2014, 06:32:55 PM
We hit mid 80s today and supposed to again tomorrow but are to cool back down somewhat by Thurs.

Post by: bayou girl on Oct 27, 2014, 09:42:52 PM
we are having wonderfully cool evenings/nights (mid 50s) and rather warm days (mid 80s) but i will take this weather over extremes either way!

Tina, I didn't know you have a weather station thing.  I'd like to have one.

Our weather has been lovely. 
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: Tina on Oct 28, 2014, 09:02:45 PM
My 'weather station' is just a two piece unit. The main part goes outdoors and the other part stays inside. the inside tells me temps outside and in and also humidity. Then the outside highs and lows for the day. A fairly simple unit. Not as much info as Jim's set up.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: sunsoaker on Oct 28, 2014, 11:03:10 PM
We are supposed to have a cold front move through tomorrow afternoon with some showers/storms with it. Nothing serious they say, but cooler temps to follow (70s for highs instead of 80s)
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: Jim on Oct 29, 2014, 10:08:52 AM
They are saying frost for us on Sunday morning.  Of course the high yesterday was 80+.  I'm ready for some cooler weather.  I don't really want to mow the grass again!
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44

Had to scrape frost this morning when I headed out to vote on my way to work.  Low was 36 and it is 60 now.  I turned my heat on Saturday.  I guess winter is just around the corner.

I broke ice out of my deep freeze yesterday and it won't finish melting until later today. Unusual. But it is not really cold. 58*  at almost 9 am. I'm not sure what the high will be but thinking upper 60's.

Snow turned to freezing rain, still 27, wind has died down a lot.

This cold outbreak should only be a short one, perhaps lasting less then a week.

Add: have 2 inches of snow.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #44
Post by: sunsoaker on Nov 13, 2014, 09:35:48 PM
ours is for a few days, then warm up for 1 or 2 days then get even colder next week. So yea. Winter is here.

Clearing up, around 36, easterly breeze up to 10 mph.

Yesterday the freezing rain lasted about an hour and then switched back to snow, total snow ~4 inches. Road has probably about an inch of packed snow. Trying to melt, but will just freeze overnight, east wind is to pick up again over the weekend.
