    Yes! I think you're right. That sounds familiar to my then-half-asleep brain.

    A wave of light fog just rolled into Boston MA. Seems like it's thickening up though.

    I had a weather front move across the area early Saturday morning which dropped the temperature significantly. It dropped only a half inch here but the effects were enjoyed all day
    Sat. Temps were in the mid eighties with broken clouds. Today the weather promptly returned to the typical brutal August HOT. It's predicted to reach the upper 90's every day next week. I am so excited... not!

    It was just a wee bit hot here today. My weather station topped out at 102.7°. My station might be running just a bit on the hot side however. I checked the other stations near me and they were all in the mid 101 range. At least it was windy and the humidity was lower than it's been.

    Out of nowhere a little weather system bloomed just to my West and is passing over now. Unpredicted and quite isolated, it is dropping some much needed rain locally. A half inch has fallen in the last 15 minutes and it isn't done. It messes up my morning mowing but my area is desperate for some moisture. With the hot of August, the arid conditions, and the freak infestation of devastating black army worms, many lawns in my area have completely turned brown.

    Just another day in Southeastern PA. 9+ inches of rain in 24 hours and a few tornados. Rivers around here are supposed to crest a few feet above flood stage by noon. Down around Philly, the crest should be sometime this evening on the Delaware River and the Schuylkill.

    Is this typical weather? It's been unusually dry here in Ks. It's been hot, which is normal, but for the most part zero wind. No wind in Ks. is very much out of the norm.
    Good luck with the flood waters.

    We're enjoying a cool (for us, in September), gray, overcast day; temps are in the low 80s. Nice break from 100+, you know?! I heard rumors of raindrops--light sprinkles--yesterday, but didn't see any myself.

    And as I type this, the weather just came on the local news... Triple digits will be back by Saturday!

    It was supposed to be cooler here this week. You've heard of fake news... well that was fake weather. :) With the humidity the index has topped 100° every day so far. I don't really understand the high humidity with the area seeing only half the normal rainfall so far this year. And the no wind... is just crazy.

    Crazy weather indeed, @olbriar. I saw video of a tornado touching down in New Jersey! Can you imagine? And in New York, the subways are flooded due to torrential rain. Crazy!

    I'm sure I've said this before, but before I moved to Dallas, I had no idea that the humidity could be 100% yet it wasn't raining. I associated humidity with rain, I guess--considering I grew up here in the parched desert that became LA, I had little experience with such things. I feel for you! I remember how miserable that degree of humidity is, plus the heat. You're mowing in this? Are you doing it earlier/later than usual?

    There has definitely been a change of weather in my life time. I've lived basically in the same area all of my life and nearly have 69 years of data lol. If the weather is a cycle, I've not lived long enough to see a full circle. I no longer have large snow falls. I haven't experience a threat of a tornado in years. No windy days in Kansas is just weird. High humidity in Kansas in August and early September is plain crazy. And that's just my region. Tornadoes in Jersey is just an example of how the weather pattern has changed.

    My customers pay me and say... man I don't know how you do it. :) I suspect it would be far more difficult if I hadn't worked in the elements most of my life. It's not fun but it is doable. I have no complaints. If it was a desirable job, everyone would get off their couch and do it for themselves. :)

    I am 4 hours South of Dallas, on an island floating the the Gulf of Mexico, we have that every day 'cept in the winter when the Northern's bring it down to 70 % or so.

    It was different in Dallas during winter--when the temperatures always dropped below freezing, and sometimes below zero. Then the humidity would be in a much lower range; I can't recall now exactly, but i'm thinking around 10%. I remember static electricity being a big problem--everything I touched (with metal in it) shocked me!

    Here in the beautiful San Gabriel Valley, we typically have humidity levels in single-digits. Really. Mix that with 100+ degree temperatures and you know what you get? Wildfires galore! :eek:

    I've been back home for 15 years, but I still laugh at my fellow natives who moan and groan about how "hot and humid" it is--when it's 90 degrees with 11% humidity. :rolleyes: I tell them to go to Dallas in August and let me know if their opinion changes....

    Right on que, it's raining being as it's the last warm weather holiday. I received an inch of rain yesterday and three quarters of an inch since midnight. Predicted highs for the big weekend is
    mid 70's to low 80's. I feel sorry for the people that have anxiously waited for this last blast at the lake holiday.

    It actually rained a bit tonight. Less than a half inch but it was greatly needed. There is a potential for additional rain early AM. I welcome whatever we get. It's been a hot and dry summer and has remained hot into mid September. Rain and more rain and a break in the heat is needed.
