The official High for Seattle today was 87 which
tied the record set previously.

In the car, it felt much closer to 90. Thank God we
could roll down the windows and drive fast enough to
get some cooling. The car's AC is dead and costs too
much to repair it.

Because of the humidity, due to being right off of the ocean, 87 actually FEELS hotter. Anything much above 80 gets pretty uncomfortable.

And for reference, normal temps are BELOW 80, well below. Due to humidity, 87 feels more like 97 in dry heat.

  The weather here has been quite accomidating.  The Menudo Central Marina is once again full.  The Pickeral Lake Princess { 14' Pontoon Boat with 1965 Evenrude 18hp outboard}  The Excelsior  { 17' Boston Whaler with 90 hp Johnson outboard}   Un Poco Menudo {  10' Sears aluminium runabout with a 1958 Johnson 5hp outbaord}  are all ready for the boating season.  Unfortunatly, The African Queen  {  14' DeckBoat with a 1955 Evenrude 40hp outboard}  has been retired.

  I have about eight people from work gonna show up tomorrow to play and see who wants to be the next owner of the African queen.  She  was my first boat and she was given to me so I shall pass the savings along to the customer and give her to someone els.  (sigh).  Err..ahem...anyway the weather was quite nice.

It's been at, or close to, or above 80 degrees F here in Seattle all week and it is supposed ot be about 80 for both Saturday and Sunday. But then on Monday we are expecting a return to "normal" Seattle weather - 60's and wet.

Thanks God for that though cause I'm burned out on hot dry days. Enough is enough.

It was raining here.  I  think it rains a good part of this week, then we hit the 90s late in the week.

Seattle gave us ONE (1) good day today before returning to cold and wet weather tomorrow, just in time for the weekend.

There's a very common (in Seattle) joke that goes:

What do you call two rainy days in a row in Seattle ??

And the answer is "A weekend.".

As you can see, we try to keep a wry and quirky sense of humor about it all. :-)

It has been dry here, I think it is supposed to be dry all this weekend too. 

 

My grass needs water.

Yup, the newspaper made a big deal that BROWN grass isn't dead, merely dormant...no rain, til Sunday at best. As long as, I think, a half inch comes down before end of month, crops should be fine.

Funny, I just mentioned the dry ground in "Bon Voyage."

 

A few months ago, rivers were overflowing.  Not so anymore!

 

The last weather report I read said the next chance of rainfall was a 20% chance next Monday.  That doesn't look good...

Hello to all..

 

..Strong Winds and Dry Weather Today will transition with a Cold Front moving through Southern New England this afternoon and evening bringing with it the potential for isolated to scattered severe thunderstorms with damaging winds and large hail the primary threats. Threat will be conditional on heating and the timing and intensity of the cold front..

..SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton Are Possible Tuesday Afternoon and Evening..

 

After a beautiful Memorial Day weekend despite strong winds on Monday Afternoon and evening, a cold front will be making its way into Southern New England Tuesday Afternoon and Evening. The cold front will have reasonably strong winds aloft and if enough heating can occur after the cold front moves through the area, it would set the stage for isolated to scattered severe thunderstorms over portions of Southern New England with damaging winds and large hail being the primary threats. The threat will be contingent on the amount of daytime heating over the area. If cloud cover prevents a lot of sunshine from occurring, this would mitigate any severe weather threat but if there isn’t much cloud cover, the threat for severe weather would increase. Also, the timing and strength of the front will be key in the severe weather risk as well. If the front moves through with the timing and strength currently modeled with sufficient heating, the threat for severe weather will be increased but if it’s a weaker front that moves through either before or after prime heating, that would also mitigate the severe weather threat.

 

SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton are possible Tuesday Afternoon and Evening. Another update will be sent by 630 AM Tuesday Morning. Below is the NWS Taunton Hazardous Weather Outlook:

Hello to all..

 

..Strong to Severe Thunderstorms Are Possible This Afternoon and Evening Across Southern New England particularly north and west of line from Plymouth, Massachusetts to Wilimantic, Connecticut. Damaging Winds and Large Hail are the primary threats. Threat timeframe appears to be from 2-6 PM today but will have to watch for earlier timing and assumes current cloud cover over the region will break sufficiently to allow for surface heating..

..SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton is possible today..

 

At 650 AM, Doppler Radar showed a line of showers covering much of Southern Connecticut, Rhode Island and Southeast Massachusetts. Radars in New York State also shown one lone strong thunderstorm east of Utica, NY moving eastward. The line of showers is moving eastward and should clear the region later this morning. Satellite pictures shows breaks in the clouds over New York and Pennsylvania. These breaks in the clouds should move into portions of interior Southern New England later this morning and this afternoon and this is a key development for any severe weasther threat. If it remains clouded over, the risk of severe weather will be lower but if sunny breaks develop to allow for daytime heating, the risk is higher. If the expected clearing develops as expected, a cold front will move into the region and models have trended stronger with this cold front in the last several runs with it moving through the region this afternoon and evening. If instability develops due to surface heating and the timing of the front is during the afternoon and evening as currently expected, winds aloft and other parameters would come together for scattered strong to severe thunderstorms to develop with either 1 line of strong to severe thundestorms or a couple of clusters/lines of strong to severe thunderstorms developing with damaging winds and large hail being the primary threats north and west of a Plymouth, Massachusetts to Wilimantic, Conencticut line. The threat timeframe appears to be from 2-6 PM today though earlier timing may need to be watched for some areas given the isolated strong thunderstorm east of Utica, NY at the time of the writing of this coordination message.

 

SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton is possible today. This will be the last complete coordination message on this threat. A short update will be sent if time allows if Ops at NWS Taunton are initiated. Below is the NWS Taunton Hazardous Weather Outlook on the potential event:

Snow. Occasionally sticking to the ground but interleaved with melt.

Have fires going in the livingroom and the antique kitchen wood stove. Don't even notice indoors with 18" thick brick walls.

Supposed to be in the mid-90's by the weekend and start of next week, with humidity will feel more like 100 or so
