So the parade of cold fronts are marching across the northern tier of the country.Cold front passage last night caused a chilly morning and it will be only in the 70's today with low humidity.Another warmup starting tomorrow afternoon and hot and humid on Friday,then another front friday night or Saturday morning,and back into more falllike weather for the holiday weekend. Another front on Tuesday.
Isaac slowly moving into LA. today,dumping 10 to 20 inches of rain,strong winds and a storm surge all the way down to the Florida panhandle. Amazing satellite view from space station shows the circulation covering the entier gulf of mexico. This is a massive storm,not that strong,but effecting thousands of people.
This will move into the midwest tomorrow,hopefully helping some of the drought areas.Eventually some of the moisture may make it up to me as it gets drawn into a frontal system for Tuesday.
TS kirk out in the middle of the Atlantic no threat to land. Invest 98L will have to watched for Bermuda,but should not threaten the continental US at all.

Hi,Mass,I like that picture. Actually we are planning on going up to Lake Winnipesaukee in NH.Daughter is renting a house up there for the weekend with a couple of other couples and they have an extra room. Should be just what the doctor ordered.
We/ve entered that time year now where we will be on a temperature roller coaster,and each hill we go down takes us to cooler temps.
Hope you and your hubby have a relaxing and stress free weekend.
Runoff will be an issue down in the Arkansas/Missouri area,like you said the ground is so hard,it will be very difficult for water to soak in,but it should help to fill up the dry reservoirs.
A couple of systems out in the Atlantic,but thankfully looks to go out to sea.Lets hope the rest of the tropical season stays quiet.

Good Morning, NEw ~

I was up bright and early this am to have that defective right front wheel axel finally replaced and, boy, the morning air was a brisk-like early fall! It certainly helped my cup of caffeine kick in faster than usual. LOL!

I've just been monitoring Isaac's stalling over the NOLA coastline and inland and am hoping that the quite large, newly installed, state of the art pumping station put in by the Army Corp. of Engineers will miraculously keep up with the deluge of rainfall (12-15" ) and flooding expected in the area. I also heard that there are sustained winds of 80 mph or a a CAT 1! Naturally, Pat hasn't issued any posts since yesterday, but I'm sure he and his family are well prepared, hunkered down for the duration, and will let us know how all made out when over. I guess, right now, it's not so much the troublesome high winds as the resulting high water surges and sea level rises toppling over, at least one of the levies and gates.

Looks like more summery temps will return here tomorrow through Saturday, with Friday reaching into the low 90's. Thankfully, there are no signs of serious rainfall or storms heading our way or threats from Isaac's remnants. How lucky we are right now!

My chief concerns of Isaac, thus far, are the possible negative effects it may have those drought-ridden southern/midwestern states. I'm not sure if the deluges of rain received will create severe run-offs into potentially serious flooding, as their soil remains quite hardened from months long drought. Hope the rainfall is just the right amount of and will somehow permeate well enough into the parched hardened ground. There's been enough serious climate/weather challenges this summer season!

Hope you and your lovely Mrs. are able to spend much of the upcoming holiday weekend doing some relaxing. I know that you're on a tear to finish up with your kitchen remodeling, but do take a relaxing break every now and then. Just because it's Labor Day, doesn't mean you're encouraged to do more labor! LOL!
