We are entering the middle of summer. And it is time to be able to evaluate the forecast idea for summer: Warmer and drier than average.
The warmer is doing well. Very well. The drier was evolving, but the moist pattern for the eastern half of the nation is a bit of a surprise. Some dryness was developing in the NE, and Mid Atlantic, as well as Great Lakes and parts of the Central Plains, esp. north. But that ha been beaten back in the Mid Atlantic, and Great Lakes. More beating back of dryness will occur in New England and northern Central Plains this week. This is a good thing. Warmth and moisture equals great growing conditions. My gardens is offering proof. Things are growing well.
This coming week looks warm and potentially wet to very wet. It all depends on how many showers/storms you get over your house. If you get several = very wet. If you get a couple = wet. You get the idea.
Once we get through this coming Friday, we should enter an extended period of nice dry weather. Probably start "cool" and end hot. But that is a long way off.

The education continued as a hobby by reading the blogs of some of the best forecasters in the business. Although forceasting the weather is an imperfect science, it is a pleasure to follow what the Creator has made.
