Daily SOI currently has a 6 day streak of negative values, maybe we may get a stormy summer after all...

I'd rather have that over very hot and dry La Nina summers.

Cpv17 I dont dislike rain at all, but when it rains everyday, that gets old real fast, my ideal weather would be maybe some seabreeze action for an hour or two and then dry weather after that, id take that

If it were up to me, there would be a 3/4 to 1 inch of rain every week of Summer. Whether that's one storm or a shower every day, I don't care.

Hot weather sucks.

Yeah the SCW guys mentioned the possibility on their blog a couple of days ago. The bright banding on radar looks like sleet to me.

How could we possibly have sleet when it's 50 degrees outside? Are the upper winds that sufficiently cold?

We need some friggin' rain this summer. CLL went months without rain + temps over 100F every day. No thank you.

I'm out of town and sorry to miss some beautiful weather at home. CLL got 0.75 in of rain. Good enough.

The weather here in NC and VA is cool but awesome. Unfortunately, I've been doing too much driving GA, SC, NC, VA and not enough walking/running, but I would give anything for another month or two of this to get in shape at home,. lol

Ended up with 1.08”

The NWS had lowered my forecast low down to 33. I gambled and didn’t cover anything. My low was 40. Happy for that bust. Now I can store the freeze covers away until next fall.

P.S. - the 10-day forecast looks great! 70’s and 80’s with a few chances of rain —> perfect for me!
