We had no rain overnight. When I went out this morning to check my electric meter I was able to note the partly cloudy skies and comfortable temperatures. This seems to be shaping up to be a nice day so far. The N.O.A.A. is not quite so optimistic. They call for an 80% chance of rain today with an accumulation of 0.30” of rain and a 100% chance of rain overnight with an accumulation of 0.73” of rain. That will give us over an inch of rain taking us to over 6” of rain for the month of September.



The NEXRAD regional composite radar this morning shows another massive slug of moisture and rain moving in our direction. It should reach us by noon at the latest, and provide us with some significant precipitation. More on that in the evening report if my wife will let me get to it. She has been an excellent manipulator of keeping me away from the evening reports in particular.

Comparative data for the overnight:
Davis VantageVue Weather Station (KMEWILTO1)

Time Temperature Dew Point Relative Humidity Weather Wind
18:00 69.5°F 60.5°F 73% Partly Cloudy Calm
21:00 61.7°F 59.4°F 92% Partly Cloudy Calm
00:00 58.7°F 57.9°F 97% Partly Cloudy Calm
03:00 56.4°F 56.1°F 99% Partly Cloudy Calm
N.O.A.A.
Time Temperature Dew Point Relative Humidity Weather Wind
18:00 71°F 56°F 59% Partly Cloudy W 5 G 6
21:00 63°F 55°F 75% Partly Cloudy W 3 G 5
00:00 59°F 54°F 83% Mostly Cloudy W 2 G 3
03:00 57°F 54°F 90% Slight Chc Showers W 2 G 3
The N.O.A.A. missed 4 of the possible 20 forecasts overnight which gives them a percentage of 80% or a B-. They missed 100% of the relative humidity levels. They are once again attempting to improve, and they continue to try.
Forecast data for today from N.O.A.A.:
Time Temperature Dew Point Relative Humidity Weather Wind
06:00 56°F 54°F 93% Patchy Fog N 1 G 2
09:00 60°F 56°F 87% Rain Likely E 1 G 3
12:00 66°F 60°F 81% Rain Likely E 2 G 7
15:00 68°F 63°F 84% Heavy Rain SE 3 G 5
The N.O.A.A. calls for our temperatures to change a bit (+12°F) with very light winds, slightly decreasing relative humidity (as it seems we have every morning) and dew points in the mid-fifties to mid-sixties. We should have a nice day with partly cloudy skies and warmer than normal temperatures, although according to N.O.A.A. we are in for some rain.
Foggy Mornings
Fog Scale 0 1 2 3 4 5
Number 24 1 2 1 2 0
Weather Forecast from the VantageVue: Increasing clouds with little temperature change The N.O.A.A. says an 80% chance for rain today with 0.30” of added precipitation tonight we can expect a 100% chance of rain with 0.73” of new precipitation. That will provide us with more than 6” of rain for the month of September. We will see how that works for them.
