Welcome to May, a day late, hopefully not a dollar short. Some foggy mornings the last couple days to start the month, but the temperatures couldn't be nicer. Let's hope the frequent rain of the last couple months takes a bit of a break as we head closer to the start of the summer season, which unofficially kicks off just over three weeks (3!) from now with Memorial Day Weekend! Smile

64* and Mostly Cloudy, but the sunshine should break out in the next couple hours as we head into the 80s again.

Just for good order, I want to revisit this post from the April thread:

May 2024 Observations and Discussion Img_2210

The convection that developed yesterday near the Dominican Republic/eastern Cuba and has been moving eastward was the signal mentioned above. Unfortunately, it appears that a fairly robust Saharan air layer combined with a relatively less than favorable MJO pulse and neutralizing upper-level divergence prevented it from spinning up. The signal was there, and the convection was there, but the expected result was not.

Good thing it’s only the pre-season, though, so it can at least be argued whether or not it should count against my overall record told ya lol!

It was a lovely day today. A lot of outside work got done before Sunday's rain. It was 68 today. Janet, I think your word will describe Sunday: a gully washer.

18z GFS shows rain most of the day tomorrow after about noon, is this incorrect?

Forcast says light steady rain sun (not exactly a gully washer) and scattered showers sat night, as I stated 18z GFS shows rain most of the day tomorrow which would be unexpected and suck.

So it’s 50 at almost 6 pm. 2 inches of rain. Will rain here until about 8 pm. Not a gully washer but steady. I’ll stick to the horses. I can’t predict weather.

52* and Cloudy with a steady light rain here. Has been raining at varying intensity, mostly light, throughout the day. In a word: Nasty. Let's hope we are getting this chilly weather and weekend rain cycle out of our system before the Memorial Day weekend in two weeks.

Have never seen the Northern Lights other than pictures and video. Probably AI-generated. Not sure they exist. Wink
