I'm crossing my fingers for some rain. If it has to be cold and dreary, it may as well rain.

It was a beautiful Memorial Day here.  Low humidity with a slight breeze.  I think the high yesterday was about 84.  It was even a bit cool at night.

Today the humidity is much higher and they are calling for some rain late and then more rain tomorrow.  The news last night put the chance of rain at 20% today and 40% tomorrow.  We need some rain.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #46
Post by: Tina on May 26, 2015, 12:23:14 PM
This morning we had heavy misty rainy stuff happening. It's supposed to clear up and be around 65* today. Looking forward to the hot weekend ahead. But not for long.

It was muggy and hot here yesterday. Sunday was our low humidity day. We've had rain off and on all day, supposed to be more tomorrow.

Actually cooled down to about 90 here today. Of course, its been raining all day. lol
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #46
Post by: wimc on Jun 26, 2015, 09:09:02 PM
Went down to around 91. Still to hot.

May hit triple digits tomorrow, then cool to upper 80's for few or so days, then the heat cranks up again, to upper 90's.

Guess walking outside is what it feels like walking into an oven.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #46

Naw, just getting into a hot car sitting in the sun is like an oven.

Post by: wimc on Jun 26, 2015, 10:09:05 PM
Not a hot weather guy, car probably would have been a better description of (excessive) heat.

No wind here, probably some humidity in the mix as well, not idea what it is.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #46
Post by: sunsoaker on Jun 27, 2015, 12:12:20 AM
The humidity is what gets you. Last week we had heat indices of 110 just cause of the humidity. Actual temp was around 95.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #46
Post by: wimc on Jun 27, 2015, 05:20:55 PM
Not making it to triple digits here today. :Yahoo:

In and out of clouds, 79, quite humid, calm (except a breeze that comes out of nowhere, could be from the chances of thunderstorms we will have next few days).
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #46
Post by: Jim on Jun 29, 2015, 10:43:38 AM
Our weather has been crazy this year.  Already had a number of days in triple digits and even more where the heat index was 100+.  We had a cold front come through yesterday and this morning it was really nice.  We had been having 80s in the mornings but this morning it was the mid 60s.  It was a welcome change.  This hot weather is keeping the grass from growing very fast though.  We mowed yesterday and it had been 2 weeks since we mowed the last time.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #46
Post by: sunsoaker on Jun 29, 2015, 10:06:47 PM
We have had sever 100 days and even more 100+ heat index days also. But the last week we've been rainy and cooler temps. Been nice, just have to dodge the rain storms if we need to go out.

We've been getting the hot, humid weather also.  It's 86 this morning with a dew point of 79, 81% humidity which gives you a heat index of 99 and it's only 9:30 in the morning.  We are supposed to have some afternoon thunderstorms with a moderate chance of severe weather tomorrow.   We need the rain just not the lightening, wind and hail that comes with severe storms in the summer.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #46

We had a thunder storm come through mid-afternoon which really cooled us down. Thankfully. The heat was getting unbearable.

Sunny and clouds, around 83, calm.

Been quite hot, too hot, around here. Quite a few days being triple digits.

We will be in triple digits the next few days. I am not happy with it.

Sucks don't it? This is normal for this time of year here. What's not normal is that its been like this off and on since June.

Title: Re: How's Your Weather #46
Post by: Dianna on Oct 04, 2015, 08:20:29 PM
News said tonight that Clarendon and Sumter counties got the most rainfall out of the state. Jim and I live in Clarendon and Megan, the girls, and Chris live in Sumter. Reports said we got 20 inches in Clarendon and Megan said they got 24 inches. After seeing Barb's yard today trying to get it to draining, I was thinking we got more than what we thought we did... ::)

We are supposed to be on the upside of the bad weather now. If it surprises us, Barb will be coming over to stay the night with us. She was anxious today and I can't say I blame her. Their yard turned into a lake... :SmileyNailbiting:

I just got off the phone with Justin. He said they didn't get anything like we did. I am thankful...
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #46

I hope you are on the downside. That sounds downright scary.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #46
Post by: Dianna on Oct 04, 2015, 09:14:51 PM
Just saw a report on another news station that said that the cities of Charleston and Columbia had the worst damage of the state. I shared the pics from that site on FB, if you are interested. I have seen some heartbreaking pictures today from all over the state...
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #46
Post by: Jim on Oct 04, 2015, 09:45:34 PM
My rain gauge is pretty accurate.  You could be 5 miles apart and it would be raining so hard you can't see in one spot and not a drop in the other.  I don't doubt that some areas got 20+ inches, but we only got close to 13 inches at the house.  At the peak last night from about 10:00 to midnight we were getting rain at a rate of 1.75 inches per hour. 
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #46
Post by: Tina on Oct 04, 2015, 11:47:33 PM
Yes, rain totals differ from even close neighbors. The news said we could get up to an inch of rain. I'm here to say we got quite a bit more than an inch.
But not near as much as you folks. Stay safe.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #46
Post by: Dianna on Oct 05, 2015, 07:49:26 AM
Jim's rain gauge is showing 14.88 inches of rain this morning. We got only 1.32 overnight, thank goodness.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #46
Post by: Dianna on Oct 05, 2015, 09:05:48 AM
Guess that the reports of Clarendon and Sumter counties reported by WIStv yesterday were incorrect, or maybe they just meant the viewing area. I saw a weather module on FB somewhere that stated Mt. Pleasant received 24+ inches and Summerville received 17+ inches. They had to have been talking about their viewing area. :ScratchHead: Jim told me that the reports we are hearing are just Doppler estimates. That is why I am reading/seeing/hearing conflicting reports.  :unsure:
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #46
Post by: Jim on Oct 06, 2015, 08:37:06 AM
Keep in mind that is much more news worthy to report 24 inches of rain than it is to use the weather stations that have digital rain gauges.  I saw a graph yesterday that was a compilation of the rain reported by some of the official weather stations and their rain totals were very close to what mine says.  In fact that is how I calibrated mine. 

Today the sun is shining.   :Glee:  We are starting toi dry out!

Title: Re: How's Your Weather #46
Post by: Jim on Oct 06, 2015, 08:49:14 AM
I tried but water across the road and I've only got 2 directions out.  Both had 6 to 9 inches of water running across it so I came back home.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #46
Post by: Dianna on Oct 06, 2015, 10:15:01 AM
There is no telling what the soil under the road is doing with all the wet weather we have had. Roads are washing out with people on them because they didn't listen to the slogan, "Turn Around, Don't Drown".

I am so glad my hubby didn't go thru it, even though we ran into some coming home on Saturday night after I got thru working. We held our breaths all the way home...

So far the worst of the storms have been streaming to the west of us - Okaloosa & Walton Counties have had tornado warnings one after the other all day. Those storms are moving this way but hoping they lose velocity by the time they get here.

We got lucky, the tornado warnings skipped us. They were in Walton Co just to the west of us, next thing I knew Gulf Co (just to the east of us) was getting them. So far we've been lucky. We're not done with the storms yet, but I believe we're out of the woods for anything severe.

Yes, I would rather have snow than temps that hover just above, teasing me. But I'd rather have daytime temps between 70-80 all the time and nighttime between 60-70.
And enough snow and rain to not be in a drought.
