Shawn shot this great fog photo at their place this morning…I’m jealous that he and Arleen get foggy mornings and I don’t, even though we only live a couple of miles from each other!
Tuesday – 16 August 2022 – 1:30pm update.
The high on Monday at Stevens Field was 79 and the low this morning was 53. Our humidity bottomed out at 29% and the airport recorded a 24mph wind gust. Rainfall totals ranged from 0.79 to 0.0, but most of us saw around a tenth of an inch.
Our tropical conveyor belt remains in place and with some daytime heating, look for an active afternoon and evening of numerous thunderstorms and showers. Any storms that do form will be slow movers, so there is the potential some of us will see over an inch of rain in our gauges this afternoon. As of this post, I see continued decent chances for rain through this weekend with 1-2 inch totals for most of us.
For all of you visiting our beautiful area, please be careful when you go out on hikes, especially in the afternoons. Totally clear mornings can quickly turn into stormy afternoons with 20-30 degree drop in temps, heavy rain, hail, lightning and gusty winds over 40mph! Make sure you pack rain gear because being wet when temps drop to the 50’s can be more than uncomfortable…it can be dangerous.
