We got pounded here in Smyrna.  Tons of rain and the lighting was downright some of the best I have seen in a very long long time.  It went on for about 3 hours. Lost power for about 30 Mins also.

We got a good bit of rain and a great lightning show tonight. Impressive.

Looking forward to the "cool down" Tuesday.

Almost half an inch of precip with this band and we lost over 20F in temp.

Mountain storms shared some heat relief today.  After dropping over .75" of rain, we're down to 72.  I'll take it.   ::rain::

I was slightly surprised to look up the data today and find that we've hit 90 degrees only 3 days this summer (none in the past week). For comparison's sake, we hit 90 degrees 19 times in 2018.

PWS has the highest dewpoint I've ever recorded IMBY today at 79.1.  Heat index is 107.4.  I'd have to say, I'm feeling it outside.  Cutting this work day short at the cabin.  The weeds will be there tomorrow.

We just had over 1.6" of rain two days ago in a torrential downpour, so I'd say that moisture is helping elevate the dewpoint today.  Hopefully, the storms moving backwards from North Carolina will provide some relief later this afternoon.

A significant chunk of Green Bay might be without power soon. That is a pretty serious looking bowing segment. [ Guests cannot view attachments ]

Here's something you don't see every day...A PDS Severe Thunderstorm Watch...

Really not surprising at all when you have chicken noodle soup dew points + heat advisories/excessive heat warnings in place just south of where the jet is right now.  Just a few sparks off a shortwave and you have a gasoline fire igniting like Die Hard 2 until the MCS hits the Appalachians or the Atlantic.  I remember in June 2009 we had a a similar situation down here in west TN/north MS.  When the storms came through most of the are was in 6k-7k J/kg CAPE.  In most cases in the summer there isn't nearly enough lift to pop this so its just cosmetic, but with a short wave upstream triggering an MCS and it getting a nice big cold pool there is no stopping it until it runs out of fuel and with that kind of fuel power lines and trees are coming down.  In the event I spoke of I lost power for 3 days and a mature tree in my backyard.  Picture of the radar from that day below:

URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 525
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   550 PM CDT Fri Jul 19 2019

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of
     Much of north central and northeastern Wisconsin
     Lake Michigan

   * Effective this Friday afternoon and Saturday morning from 550
     PM until 100 AM CDT.

   ...THIS IS A PARTICULARLY DANGEROUS SITUATION...

   * Primary threats include...
     Widespread damaging winds and scattered significant gusts to 105
       mph expected
     Scattered large hail and isolated very large hail events to 2.5
       inches in diameter possible
     A few tornadoes likely

   SUMMARY...An intense supercell cluster in northwestern Wisconsin is
   expected to evolve into a damaging bow echo that will accelerate
   east-southeastward across northern/northeastern Wisconsin this
   evening.  The storm environment will favor swaths of high-end,
   destructive outflow winds potentially exceeding 100 mph.  Tornadoes
   will also be possible with embedded circulations, as well as large
   hail in the next few hours with lingering supercell structures.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 55
   statute miles north and south of a line from 70 miles west northwest
   of Wausau WI to 30 miles northeast of Manitowoc WI. For a complete
   depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline update
   (WOUS64 KWNS WOU5).

   PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

   REMEMBER...A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means conditions are
   favorable for severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area.
   Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for threatening
   weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible
   warnings. Severe thunderstorms can and occasionally do produce
   tornadoes.

Just a reminder that this heat can be deadly... take breaks and stay hydrated.
