No measurable precipitation has been recorded from the last two fronts that have gone by my area. we get some drizzle or sprinkles, but that is all. looks like i will be watering the garden today, which is looking pretty good. should be able to pick some zuchini within a day. looking forward to grilling them with some potatoes and onions.

Good evening Bliz. Hope your trip home was uneventful even though I see some storms hugging the coast.

On and off rain here most of the day. The temp never rose above 69°. We got .75" of rain from this last round of storms. That gives me a total of 2" for the month so far.

With the heat we've been getting, the garden plants have really taken off. And so have the weeds. With the predicted low temps for the coming week, I'm planning on doing a lot of weeding and starting to mulch everything down for the summer.

Ah well, my travels take me home to Pennsylvania. I had a wonderful trip along with seeing some fascinating weather events. I will try to have a blog out by Monday detailing a little about Florida weather including my possible tornado funnel cloud picture. For tonight I see some severe weather across western Pennsylvania with wind damage the primary threat. For Saturday debris clouds may be around from the Friday night. Winds aloft will be the strongest north of Pennsylvania, so severe weather should only be isolated for Saturday. Hopefully I won't have too much of a bumpy ride on the flight home Saturday evening! Anyway have a wonderful weekend and expect to hear from me with a new blog coming out Monday!!!

PS: Thankyou for all of the very helpful daily observations!

Hi Bliz. Nothing much has been happening here in the last week. Highs in the 80s so it's been hot. The 'cool' front that moved through Tuesday did crank the heat down a little and the humitiy down a lot. But we got little rain from it, just .04".

Most everything in the garden is growing like there's no tomorrow. And, yes, I've started to water. Weatherwise though, it's been pretty dull.

Blizzard-
We had a couple of storms that moved through northern Northmapton County late last week/weekend. Tuesday night's storms moved through central Lehigh County and western/central Northampton County with some hail and severe storms. Here in east central Northampton County we saw lots of lighting, wind, about .40" rain, but not a lot in the way of damage. Most of the storms appeared to be 1-5 miles from me.

not much rain to speak of so far. we had a wind gust of 26 mph @ 650pm
the barometer is rising rapidly.
something i didn't realize at least from my observations for this month is that the barometer rarely gets abover 30.00"

Hello Blizz,
Hope you are enjoying your Florida trip. How nice of them to have some storm clouds around to welcome you. Looking forward to seeing the pictures.

It is another 101 degree day in this neck of the woods. There was a storm that popped up in Currituck county earlier and it just spun around itself. I've seen similar radar stories. Spotty stuff popping up here and there. We're hoping for a cool down as this is day 4 of the extreme heat.

Well a tornado warning just went out for my county in central Florida for Orange County. Now before that was issued I took a picture of a strange cloud formation that resembled a funnel cloud. I will post the picture when I return and see what people make of it. Otherwise the thunderstorm contained the loudest thunder I have heard in a long time. Nothing else too significant.

Greetings from the sunshine state! Thanks for all of the comments and observations from this week and keep them coming! I did a little check on the weather so far this week and I see there was some severe weather across the state including a tornado in Venango County. Also there appeared to be widespread severe thunderstorms across northeastern Pennsylvania also. And I see the heat is horrible, as a matter of fact it is warmer in Pennsylvania than it is here in Central Florida. So far here weather has been pretty quiet but there is a high chance of thunderstorms today due to an offshore upperlevel low pressure. I did get some pretty cool pictures of clouds from the plane ride down. I will post some of them when I return! As for today a moderate risk of severe weather for eastern Pennsylvania, wow. And this time it does not appear it will be a bust like the last moderate risk. Also already tornado watch for northeastern Pennsylvania with probably more watches to come. Observations from across the state look clear with high heat and humidity. Thunderstorms in Pennsylvania will develop along a prefrontal trough in central Pennsylvania. Combined with 60knot winds aloft and CAPEs of 3000 j/kg, high wind damage will be the prominent severe weather threat and could be extremely widespread. The next weather system will move in for the weekend, just in time for my flight home Saturday night. Ugh I do not want to fly in the rain/storms!

ChrisCone- I was wondering where your great forecast discussions were? But I understand as this is only weather blogging and all other things such as finances are much more important! I think I will stick with communicating on the blogs here at weatherunderground, but a much appreciated thank you for the offer. As for your weather locals, lol, well the need to stop looking at the GFS model, and start making some accurate forecasts. Severe weather does look possible in Connecticut, get some pictures if anything heads your way.

cchamp6- Wow, 99degrees and quarter inch hail. Sounds like some wild weather up your way.

jthal57- Any thunderstorms up your way this week. I saw to your north in the poconos of some severe weather reports.

DenverMark- O how I wish of a July blizzard, lol. Thanks for stopping by.

WeatherBobNut- Yes this is sure some hot weather along the east coast. Hope to talk to you soon when I return.

TheRasberryPatch- 43mph gust is still pretty significant. Can you image hurricane force winds, wow! Watch out for severe weather today!

Well thanks again for the observations and comments. I may post quickly again sometime later this week. Stay tuned to your local news and national weather service today as severe weather looks widespread. Have a wonderful week!!!

hey bliz ! sorry about my recent absence, I have run into some financial issues as of late and had to adjust my priorities somewhat. It sucks because I really enjoy showcasing my weather knowledge on here, even though at times I am too aggressive and feel like a fool haha.... but other times, I am dead on, and those days are quit satisfying. Anyway, it is early Tuesday Morning, and I am looking at a fail-proof chance of severe weather across our entire region. I was wondering what you take on it is with this. Unlike the last event, I don't think cloud cover will be much, if any, of an issue here. Can you believe that most of the Connecticut television stations are predicting a chance of a shower for today ? A CHANCE OF A SHOWER ? Now I know the severe potential is somewhat less here in CT, than it is over PA and central NY, but come on now.... it is quite obvious to me that we all get into some good action today ! And hey, at risk of sounding a little weird, I was wondering if you had a phone I could text about weather conditions. I am thinking of starting up a little network of people who can communicate back and fourth via text things like current conditions and severe weather... I was thinking it would be need to have this sort of dragnet of people telling eachother about there conditions, or weather stories, significant events, and so on.... not to mention sending pictures of such things back and fourth. Maybe after some time, we could all go get certified and get our own group of spotters together. What do you think ?

Blizz, its 99 degrees here with a dewpoint of 73 degrees and a heat index of 108 degrees.

Im watching the sea breeze coming off of long island sound to see if any storms pop.

I had decent hail here yesterday. About quarter size, in two different storms. I posted video on Sullys site.

Good morning Blizzard92,
Thanks for stopping by my blog this weekend! You're probably dreaming of a blizzard with that steamy weather you're having. I wouldn't be surprised if Philly and NYC make it to 100 today. Nice and cool out here...43 in Denver this morning and below freezing in a lot of mountain areas!! Stay cool and have a great week :-)

Well last post of the week...

For Tuesday a cold front will move in to provide some temporary relief, but it appears as if warmth may return by the weekend. Also severe weather could be a threat, but timing is still under question. Have a wonderful upcoming week!

PS... I am hoping to get some pictures of cloud formations during the boring plane ride. If any are decent I will be sure to post them.

Rasberry,

Only one suggestion. Get them in the ground, man! LOL

Peas are legumes and can grow in just about anything.

You don't really even need to let the soil sit after its turned. If the ground thaws and you can get a shovel or pitchfork into it is when you should plant them.

Just plant them in a row and put in a small support for the seedlings. After 4-5 weeks they should be big enough for a trellis or tomato cages.

for those interested the wind chill is 92.7

been out in the yard doing all kinds of things all day. my face is burning up and it is time to hit the pool.
just to let you know i fertilized my lawn today. i believe we are in for some drought conditions for a bit. if i had done it sooner we might not have such high precip for the year and my gardens wouldn't be taking off with the sun.

"The heat is on"

12:45pm update, Saturday

Short Term Forecast

Well this is my last update before my trip. I will be gone all of next week. Feel free to post comments in the blog and I will try to get back to you when I return. I would also appreciate some observations of the type of weather that occurs each day, so I have an idea of the weather pattern that occurs next week. As for severe weather. I looked ahead and there could be a severe weather outbreak Tuesday as a cold front moves through the region. Beware of that and stay tuned to the NWS. For today the heat will increase and already many areas are at 90degrees with dewpoints in the 70s. Even as I posted below an 80degree dewpoint cannot be ruled out. Also the CAP is not as strong today and it shows weakening across the northwest. Pulse thunderstorms cannot be ruled out anywhere across the state as CAPEs go over 3500 j/kg. If pulse thunderstorms do form that are capable of becoming of severe with strong downdrafts. For tonight radiation fog could be a problem again, but most likely not as dense as it was this morning. The heat continues for early this week. Then midweek it cools off, only leading to another return of hot weather by next weekend. Have a wonderful week!!! I will be here the rest of today. But tomorrow morning I am off!

hey Blizz, i told you you would be eating and eating them. after a month of eating 20 or so a day you kind of getting tired of them until next year.
no tomatoes yet. blossoms on my cherry, but usually this time of the year you may get tomatoes, but it takes forever for them to turn.
actually have a couple of peppers on a plant.

TheRasberryPatch- Yep I too have been starting to pick some radishes. You were right they surely came up very thick and almost too many, lol. My peas came up very thick and are getting very tall.

jthal57- My tomato plants have blossoms, by my neigbor's one tomato has already 3 tomatoes growing on it. One of them is quite large.

sullivanweather- Thanks. I will have to look into planting them early next year.

thanks sullivan. i will remember that. one problem is i usually don't turn my garden until late March or early April, depending on the weather of course. and then i let it sit for a week or so and turn it once more.

any suggestions on preparing a spot in my garden for the peas for that time of year?

Rasberry,

Next year put your sugar snap seeds in the ground in late March. When the soil is this warm they're more prone to rot and as the seed gets soft there's usually some kind of critter alive to eat them.

They'll survive temperatures down to 15-20 degrees in the early spring so you won't really have to worry about killing them. You're far enough south where if you did that you'd start to harvest them around this time of year.

You'll get much higher germination rates and you'll also get a 3-4 week head start on the weeds.

nice maps Blizz.

still waiting for the sun to break through.

my potatoes are getting blossoms. cucumbers are doing well. it was touch and go last week. radishes are ready to be picked finally. weeds made a nice comeback before the claw and hand took over yesterday.
for some reason my sugar snaps didn't come up. 3 out of 60 came up. hopefully, zuchini will get blossoms soon.

"A tale of two weather extremes"

Friday Near Term Forecast 1030am...

This morning easterly winds have pushed a marine layer onshore accompanied by low clouds and fog. This will push out by noon, by still this morning will keep a hold on temperatures in the 60s. Meanwhile in western Pennsylvania as 1030am the sun is out shining with dewpoints in the 70s. CAPE values already in western Pennsylvania at an impressive 3000 j/kg according to latest soundings. There is a strong mid level CAP today. But with a little orographic lift some pulse thunderstorms cannot be ruled out. No lifting mechanisms will also be a problem for convection to form. High temperatures will approach 90degrees in almost all areas for the first time this year. Excessive heat watches and warnings are out for Saturday and Sunday where high temperatures will push mid 90s and heat indices over 100. Plan your outdoor plans accordingly this weekend. Have a great Friday!!!
