Nothing here. 30% chance of getting less than 1/10" rain today, only a 20% chance tonight. More of the same after that with no relief from the heat in sight until Thursday, and then the high temperatures are only going to drop by about 5 degrees. Reminds me of the extended hot spell we had at this exact same time of year in 2012, but that was much worse because we had just been wiped out by the derecho!

Oh well, nothing to do about the weather (except complain), so I'm heading out for a morning walk before it gets hotter. :)

Yesterday morning I replaced my brake rotors and a stud on my left front wheel and I was practically dead after we were done. Wiped me out. I think my sweat rusted my new rotors :D:D

Looks like some heavy rain is now falling in Wharton. Must have just popped up out of nowhere, I was looking about 15 minutes ago and there was nothing at all!

I'm past due on my oil change that I need to do on my Tacoma. Hoping to do it mid-week, when the temps are only terrible, instead of brutal. That humidity kills me.

Forecast is 92 today, 91 Tuesday, 91 Wednesday, drops a big three degrees to 88 on Thursday. Big deal. Low point is supposed to be 86 on Friday, then it climbs right back up to 91 by Sunday. Unfortunately, I think we just need to get used to it.

I so hate this type of weather. Can't deal with the humidity very well. I can only wait for the cooler/colder temps to get here in a few months. You'll never hear me complain of it being too cold.

There's a new briefing available from the National Weather Service here. Looks like the remains of hurricane Beryl might bring us some heavy rain later in the week.

Rain relief coming

From the National Weather Service 7/11 6 am

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/...
Frontal boundary remains along the East Coast into the weekend.
Abundant low level moisture will stream into the Northeast and
Mid-Atlantic with surface dew points well in the 70s and PWATs
in excess of 2 inches. There will be a fair amount of
instability during the daylight hours with SB CAPE values
upwards of 1500 J/kg, but 0-6 km Bulk Shear will be fairly low,
generally less than 20 kt. As a result, can expect heavy rain
and localized flash flooding as storms will be fairly slow to
move and training of storms will develop.

WPC Day 2 Excessive Rainfall Outlook for Friday and Friday
night has a Marginal Risk (1 out of 4) for northern New Jersey
and southeast Pennsylvania and a Slight Risk (2 out of 4) for
southern New Jersey and Delmarva.

The first low tracks along the coast on Friday and departs
Saturday night. A secondary low will follow behind it on
Saturday. Model guidance has it a bit warmer on Saturday
compared to Friday, with highs in the low to mid 80s on Friday
and in the mid to upper 80s on Saturday. The warmer temperatures
on Saturday may give way to a bit more convection.

Total rainfall Friday and Friday night will range from 1 to 2
inches across Delmarva and southern New Jersey, and generally
1/2 to 1 inch for for southeast Pennsylvania and northern New
Jersey. On Saturday and Saturday night, widespread rainfall
should be lower as the secondary low may pass just east of the
local area, with 1/2 to 3/4 inch of rain for Delmarva and
southeast New Jersey and 1/4 inch or so elsewhere.

They have increased the amount of rain in the forecast. :siren: It's interesting that the area with the heaviest rain is not the same as the area with the greatest projected flood impact. Guess that's due to the greater amount of development in the flood impact area, where more of the ground is covered with buildings and pavement ("urban and poor drainage areas")
