Lots of lightening and thunder and wind last night here, but very little rain. Hit 95 yesterday for a record high. 92 and sunny today. Another couple of days of heat in the forecast before rain moves in and we're back to more normal highs in the 70s.
Shouldn't complain as we have little likelihood  of anything severe and it's just heat. More tired of the swings between colder than normal to hotter than normal to normal and back that we've been getting.

Power just came back on, round 2 of the storms was not as severe as the ones at noon.  Next line looks like it's breaking up and the worse will be north of here.

Several people dead in the area, 80+mph winds clocked in several areas, downed trees killed a few people, a few streets behind my house what looks like a wire down on a house caused a fire that killed one guy.

There's this cut-off Low parked over my locale and we're supposed to be getting lots of rain from it but so far, nothing.
There's rain to the east moving north and rain to the west moving south with temperatures holding in the mid-60s.
For mid-June this is very welcome compared to the usual oppressively humid upper 80s-90s :o

I guess the temperature was off as we actually only reached a high of 61 which breaks the old record low-high of 62 :speechless:

Swings of 20 degrees hotter than normal for 4 or 5 days to 10 degrees cooler than normal for 4 or 5 days continuing here. Today is the first day of transition back to higher than normal. Looking at 2 weeks of rain in the forecast for every day starting tomorrow.

Some interesting facts just coming in from today's ridiculously cool day today..
The last time we had a Summer day with a high in the 60s was 2015. The coldest Summer high on record here is 59 degrees set back in 1967. Today's high of 61 breaks the old record of 62 set in 1965 was 25 degrees below average and it was the 6th coldest day on record all time since 1878

They have been calling for storms a lot the last week and they never happened, looks like a strong cell building just to the east of here, starting to look stormy outside now.

So that big red echo on the radar that was heading straight here faded to green just as it got here.  Only got about a tenth of an inch of rain, been a few weeks since we had more than that much so we could use some more rain but it looks like it's all going north of here.

We've had similar storms here in the Carolinas  the last couple of days that look menacing then fall apart or redevelop after passing by my locale..

Dust from the Sahara will reach the US soon:

Yeah it should be affecting our weather this weekend.
What it will do exactly isn't 'clear' :rimshot:

According to NASA, Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning is when the Saharan Dust will be most potent over our area of the Carolinas.
So I guess a potent sunset & sunrise could be expected, weather permitting or muddy rains from storms ???

Severe thunderstorms are possible today, especially across western NC and the northern Upstate of SC this afternoon and evening. Damaging wind gusts are the primary threat, but large hail is also possible, and an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.
This unsettled pattern could last into the July 4 weekend :o
