  1. That line really fizzled as it hit Maine. Only recorded 0.01".
  2. Pretty good line there. Topped out at 69.1° here, with a bit of "mist" in the air. You could feel it on your face, but the ground never looked wet.

    Man, I knew they were burning down the rainforest in South America, but had never really looked at the scale. This is just Bolivia, but if you pan around, its mind numbing. Every red dot is a fire, and there's one that looks like sure the inferno that blew up today. Note that the yellowish lights that show up near the end are cities. https://rammb-slider.cira.colostate.edu/?sat=goes-16&z=4&im=42&ts=1&st=0&et=0&speed=130&motion=loop&map=1&lat=0&opacity[0]=1&opacity[1]=0.28&hidden[0]=0&hidden[1]=0&pause=20190817210059&slider=-1&hide_controls=1&mouse_draw=0&follow_feature=0&follow_hide=0&s=rammb-slider&sec=full_disk&p[0]=geocolor&p[1]=fire_temperature&x=14279.4443359375&y=14748.0283203125
  4. I'd be happy to have an early my frost to knock out the bugs. I don't mind the warm September's, but relative to "normal" that probably doesn't mean as hot up here. Even though it hasn't been cold, seeing some color on the trees due to dry conditions.
  5. The 2018-2019 El Niño really just ended only recently, and it takes time for the atmosphere to "wind down", thus, shear in the Atlantic his probably been quite high. I haven't followed real close, but it seems like there's been a lot of very dry air blowing of western Africa. SSTs in the main development region haven't been very high either for the most part. I dune believe the MJO has really left the circle of death much either. So there's been quite a few head winds that conspired with luck to create the slow season. I'm sure there are other factors, but those are a few. Like @1816, I welcome a "boring" year, but all it takes is one.
  6. The summer of non-descript weather continues up here. Low of 59.2°, high of 80.6°, no rain. It's been a nice summer, virtually no thunderstorms, and dry enough to get rid of the mosquitos. Not much to complain about.
  7. Nice weekend, mid 70s yesterday, 50.5° to start today.
  8. NMME plumes are all over the place.
  9. Picked up nearly an inch (0.83") of rain last night, very much needed. I often drive on unpaved roads, and it was kicking up quite the smoke screen when on them.
  10. Only dropped to the low 50s here, but seeing some subtle color showing on a few maples, but it's probably more related to the lack of rain this past month.
  11. Last 3 weeks have been pretty dry in some spots. The few thunderstorms have not distributed the rain equitably.
  12. Yeah, just a window unit keeps the place comfortable. It's nice to come home to after spending the day "basking" in the heat.
  13. Topped out at 89.8° imby yesterday, today looks hotter, and air quality alerts to pile on. Noticed my asthma acting up a bit yesterday. Thanks megalopolis...
