dry, hot and dry in Ohio

Not having the time to watch weather reports for other areas I'm wondering if it has been a real dry summer for others out there. We have had almost constant sunshine and very little rain since June. I can't recall it ever being so dry... Makes for great boating but the local inland reservoirs (drove by a few) are very low. Lake Erie water temp is up to 72 degrees, believe this is taken at a 30 ft. depth so swimming is very nice right now. It has been as high (water tenp) as 80 degrees (1988) but we had 37 days over 90 degrees that year. Daytime air temps in the low 90"s this week. Comments on weather elsewhere Stateside?
I know how it has been for our U.K. associates, we sure could have used some of the rain you didn't want, weather can be odd...

we've had the opposite in oregon. we had a full week of rain in july, which is a record. temperatures are mild only hitting the 90's four times so far this year.

still great boating weather though

Pretty normal weather here in NorCal; coolish, no rain, marine layer coming in in the morning, and pulling back as the day progresses. The winter was drier than normal, though.

Here in AZ the temp. is around 100F. but humidity is high. Had a huge monsoon storm 2 days ago. 2.68 inches in about 1 1/2 hours. tree and mud in streets etc. Could not get to work next morning. A fancy condo complex with an underground carpark flooded 100 + cars up to their windows. The Porches and Corvettes were totally under. The Home owners management Association are claiming " Act of God". Best of luck with that one.

Caribbean Weather

We're into our 89day/80night temperature range; it doesn't vary 1 or 2 degrees, day to day. The humidity is high, as usual but the trade winds have held up so far and we average 15 - 20 kts out of the E/SE. On average we have at least one Tropical Wave a week now, the precursors for Tropical Storms. One passed South of here this AM and the next is due through on Sunday. We can do 150 mph in a storm, structure wise, standing on our heads but it takes the electrical grid down and the power provider is dead broke so it could me months to get the lines back up if we have a bad storm.

My morning routine now unitl November first is to check the data and sat photos of what's going on East of here.

We have had a mixed bag,periods of rain and t-storms for a few days then sunny and warm. I watch 3 different online weather reports then I stick my head out the door and dress for THAT moment. Same with the seas, report will be for some fun seas(3 to 5 footer) and I will go out and it is flat ass calm. Report will be for 1 to 2 footers, take the little woman out and we have gale force seas and that always wins me some brownie points, hates me and the boat.

Near record rainfall in August....

As of yesterday we broke an 88 year old record for rainfall in August.... very little rain June and July and buckets of it in August with the month 2/3 gone. Strange thing is that it doesn't seem like it has rained much as we got it in big spurts, sure hasn't affected the weekends much excepting last Sunday. Them thar tropical storms is making it tropical in ohio, very steamy right now and I'm lovin' it!
How is it elsewheres folks?

Hi Pat
Well, tommorow we will probably equal the record for the # of days of temp. over 110F. this summer. Having to pay attention to dehydration. The best sign is when you go to pee and it really stinks and is bright yellow then it is time for more beer.
Work on the boat is out of the question. Temp. at 5 am this morning was 92F.

Tony
