This week is supposed to be the last week of hot weather for us.  I guess we will see.  I'm ready for the grass to stop growing.  I mowed again this weekend.  It had been 2 weeks so it is slowing down.  We've been really dry too so that keeps it from growing as well.

No snow yet William?  Looks like you were getting the cold and we were still in the triple digits.  The weather this year has been strange to say the least.

Post by: wimc on Oct 01, 2019, 10:52:13 AM
Early Fall this year, no snow yet, first bout of cooler weather, they said was the weekend only thing.

Will be sunny soon, 36, light (up to 4 mph) breeze at times.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56
Post by: wimc on Oct 01, 2019, 03:27:32 PM
Sunny, 53, breeze (up to 5 mph) at times.

I generally go by the National Weather Service Forecast for Western Columbia River Gorge (https://www.wsdot.com/traffic/forecast/Default.aspx?zone=WA045) for our weather.

The image shown is not close to me.

Still hot here but we did get a rain shower this afternoon.. The first in over tow weeks. Gonna be hot/dry for rest of week. Then hopefully somewhat of a cool down (into 80s) and chances of rain.

Loving this cooler weather.  On Saturday it will be 2 weeks since I mowed.  I think the cooler weather has got the grass growing a bit slower.  Of course we haven't had much rain either so that may be contributing.  I'll mow it on Saturday and that might be the last time this season.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56
Post by: sunsoaker on Oct 10, 2019, 10:41:47 PM
We've been in the 60s in the mornings, even down to 63 this morning, but still into the upper 80s low 90s by the afternoon. Still the mornings are nice.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56
Post by: Jim on Oct 14, 2019, 09:22:41 AM
We finally got a little rain last night.  Supposed to get some more tonight and into tomorrow.  They are saying we could get an inch or more.  That will be fine.  It's really dry which is unusual for us this time of year.

It has been a bit cooler with the highs in the mid 80s.  Big cool down coming this week as we are forecast to get some really cool nights.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56
Post by: sunsoaker on Oct 14, 2019, 11:07:49 PM
Sounds likd us only our rain started this evening. Will go into tomorrow & Wednesday. Even so, we've only gotten a 1/4 in. of rain. We have rain but it's light rain. We'll take all we can get. It's the first real rain we've had in almost a month.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56
Post by: Jim on Oct 15, 2019, 10:54:33 AM
Yeah, no more rain yet.  I think it is supposed to move in here tonight.  They are forecasting rain most of the day tonmorrow.  I hope it's a slow steady rain instead of those fast downpours where you get about an inch an hour.  We'll take it no matter how it comes I guess.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56
Post by: sunsoaker on Oct 15, 2019, 10:15:27 PM
Been raining most of the day here. The slow steady kind. A few 'storms' mixed in with heavier rain, but not on top of me. Supposed to be more of the same tomorrow, but not all day. Still not enough to kill the drought we're in.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56
Post by: Jim on Oct 16, 2019, 01:34:05 PM
We've got about .5".  It was the slow and steady kind.  Lots of clouds hanging around but the sun is out now and it's drying up.  We are supposed to get some more after the weekend. 
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56
Post by: sunsoaker on Oct 16, 2019, 11:36:38 PM
Rainy (about 1/4 in in some places) and cooling down. Lower 80s today. Tomorrow supposed to be mid 70s and sunny, but Fri/Sat the rain returns big time. We have a tropical disturbance we're watching. Whatever it turns out to be, it will dump lots of rain on us.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56
Post by: Jim on Oct 18, 2019, 11:54:18 AM
We are supposed to get up to 3 inches from the same system Barb.  Supposed to get here about noon Saturday and last till Sunday morning.  We need the rain but that's quite a bit in a short amount of time.  No complaints though.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56
Post by: sunsoaker on Oct 18, 2019, 11:09:00 PM
3 inches ain't nothing here. Won't even bust our drought. It's been raining off and on since around 3:00 and still only 3/4 of an inch. The worst of it is supposed to come through after midnight. It's going in to the east of us so we will not get a lot. It will be wet & breezy and out by noon tomorrow they say.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56

Post by: sunsoaker on Oct 19, 2019, 11:31:49 PM
The rain ended here for the most part around noon. Still some misting, still a bit breezy but nothing of concern. We went ahead and did our Saturday errands...
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56
Post by: Jim on Oct 21, 2019, 07:54:45 AM
We had a slow steady rain most of the day on Saturday and then Saturday night it picked up considerably.  It got windy and the rain got harder.  Not sure exactly how much rain we got as my weather station lost connection with the instruments right after midnight.  Up until then we had received about 2 inches, total.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56

Post by: sunsoaker on Oct 21, 2019, 10:24:52 PM
Y'all got more rain than we did, Jim. over the course of the 2 days we got about 1.75". We have a squall line fixing to come through here with possible severe weather. Once it's through its supposed to rain until around noon tomorrow. We'll see how much we get out of this one. Maybe it'll finish knocking us out of our drought?
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56
Post by: Jim on Oct 22, 2019, 09:15:27 AM
That same line is supposed to get here today.  Yesterday they were saying a slight chance for severe weather for us but today it dropped to marginal chance.  It sprinkled a bit on my way to work but not much. 

The rain we got on Saturday soaked right in.  I could have driven the gator all over the land on Sunday without any worry of leaving ruts.  I guess it was just so dry the ground sucked up all the moisture really quick.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56
Post by: sunsoaker on Oct 23, 2019, 07:49:09 AM
It's like that every time it rains here, Jim. It's due to the sandy soil. There has to be tons of rain for it to stay wet more than a day.  Today I'm cold. It's 59 outside 68 inside. Hoping I can talk Krys into turning on the heat at leas for a little while.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56
Post by: Jim on Oct 23, 2019, 09:39:13 AM
Ours only soaks in that fast if we haven't had any rain for quite some time.  Otherwise it stays we a couple of days at least.  Next week we are supposed to get rain every day and then turn considerably colder.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56
Post by: sunsoaker on Oct 23, 2019, 10:01:31 PM
We have one more cold night/day. Then tomorrow night the cold front moves out and rain starts. Supposed to rain the rest of the week off and on and temps back up in the 80s

We have a marginal risk of severe weather for tomorrow and we had a slow steady rain yesterday.  Today it's supposed to be warm again.  I think we are supposed to drop about 20 degrees over the weekend and might see some high 30s for the overnight temps.

We have big changes coming this weekend.  Freeze warning for most of the state tomorrow morning and Sunday morning.  Next week we are supposed to have another cold front come through which is supposed to drop our morning temps to the middle 20s.  I'm not looking forward to that.

We are supposed to get the weather that Barb got last night today.  They say it will start about 1PM and go till 4AM tomorrow morning.  Forecasters are saying we may get 6 inches of rain.  Flash flood warnings for the same time period.

Schools are letting out early today as well.

We don't really need any more rain.  The ground is saturated so flooding will be an issue if we get some hard downpours.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56

Well, the weather has moved out of here as of about 5 p.m. Temps are dropping. Supposed to be cool and sunny tomorrow. We had some thunderstorms here, but nothing severe. Not even all that much rain here. Lots of strong winds with stuff blowing around that wasn't tied down. Counties around us had some severe stuff going on. Hope its not too bad for y'all.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56
Post by: Jim on Feb 07, 2020, 07:54:14 AM
Cloudy all day but the rain didn't really start till about 5:00PM.  Then it rained off and on till about 10.  1.5 inches in that time span.  I had done some drainage work so by the time I got up this morning most of the puddles were gone.

Very windy now though.  That probably contributed to the roads being dry for my drive in this morning.  The weather station recorded today's peak wind at 26.2 but right now it's about 3.8 with gusts to 6.9.
Title: Re: How's Your Weather #56
Post by: sunsoaker on Feb 07, 2020, 07:59:51 AM
Don't guess we were done with the wind. Had a major gust in the middle of the night. Blew the porch chairs around and into the side of the house, and the garbage can up under the deck. Still windy out but suppose to die down by afternoon. But we have sunshine. and cold. it's 39 this morning. 20s with wind chill. It's been in the 70s all week, even in the mornings.

I guess most of the bad stuff went north and south of us.  We got about 1" of rain total but it was slow and steady instead of heavy.  Everything got a good drink, settled the pollen some.

Glad you guys made it through Barb. This weather is definitely unsettled this year.

Jim, I've been tasked with asking you about your weather station. Scott's interested.

Here is a link to a couple of pictures of the station I have now.  It was in a previous How's Your Weather topic.

http://www.southernspirithunters.com/smf/index.php/topic,5802.msg201946.html#msg201946

The station I had first has been discontinued.  This is the one that I have now.  It is so much better and doesn't require battery changes or a computer to upload the data.

It's also available on Amazon.

No.  For the most part, the NWS does not accept information from private weather stations.  There are a number of other sites that do.  Weather Underground, Ambient Weather, Weather Cloud, Personal Weather Stations, etc.  These sites all accept uploads from the weather station I have.

If you go to the weather station link, there are pics and a pretty good description and explanation of the features.

I guess the pics were a casualty of PhotoBucket.

Time to order a weather station.  I have been accepted as a Storm Spotter with the NWS in Charleston.  In their application package, they asked if we had a weather station which leads me to believe that if you are registered with the NWS that they may take your data from your station.  More to follow!     :yesssss:

I suspect you are right. So much was.
