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.
Agreed on that. 8-)

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?

The upper levels are cold with 850mb temps at or below freezing.

lets hope not, i dont want a stormy summer lol
Are you crazy? Lol what’s up with you and your dislike for rain?
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!
