We exceeded their expectations today. 101° in the backyard around 3:30 this afternoon. Our area temps are taken at the airport and it’s always 5 - 10° cooler there in the summer and 5 - 10° warmer in the winter.

While our climates differ, we have a similar situation in our small town.  Our weather station is located at our local airport. It sits on a high ridge approx. 200 ft above the town proper. During winter the cold air seeks the lowest spot and it isn't at the airport. Ten to twenty degrees difference isn't uncommon.

Been pouring here all day!  The flood alert goes on through Thursday. The weather service says I can get up to 2' of rain in the next 2 days.

We had a high percentage of rain yesterday and today haven’t seen a drop yet. We could use some more before the summer pattern really sets in.

More rain and numerous water spout warnings!  Water spouts are just offshore tornadoes. My rain guage goes up to 3" and I have had to empty it twice and soon a third time!

Hello summertime. 100° this afternoon in the back yard. Looks like this is going to be the pattern for the next 10 days at least. The humidity was there today as well.

Wind has finally let up here. 90’s all this week pretty normal. Almost a 1” of rain in the last week which puts us .5” below normal. More showers in the forecast this week. Wheat harvest is getting started
