Tropical Storm Arthur, the first named storm of the 2020 hurricane season, is likely to form today or tomorrow off the Carolina coast but won't affect the weather here in my locale..
Just over 2 weeks ahead of the official start of the Hurricane season on June 1 :o

Woohoo! After cold and snow to start the week, we're in the 70s today and supposed to be close to 80 tomorrow. A bit cooler and rain all day Sunday, but "woohoo" due to forecast a couple of days ago was showing rain all weekend. Wet dreary day on Sunday will kind of suck, but at least it won't be a whole weekend of it.

As expected, Arthur is staying off the coast and will have no effect on my local weather but there is a good chance of rain and thunderstorms every day this week up till the Memorial day weekend   :o

Hit the forecast correctly for here. Rain all day yesterday and today. Basement sump pump working hard.

Rain started yesterday around 4pm and has been pretty much non stop with embedded thunderstorms and numerous downpours since then.. Got woke up around 12:30am by a thunderstorm :-[
Total rainfall estimates for the week are between 4-7 inches of rain with flash flood watches up around my locale :o

And the heavy rains continue..
Had a pause this morning then started back up this afternoon and have been continuing. Forecast shows more heavy rains and thunderstorms overnight-I didn't get much sleep last night so I really hope I can sleep through these storms :-[

The constant rains finally came to an end yesterday afternoon and today there's a good chance of severe storms moving through the area this afternoon from the west..
Strong winds knocking over trees could be the biggest threat as the ground here is completely water-logged.

Major storm lime  blasted through around 4pm and knocked a huge branch onto my storage building basically destroyed.

On the phone with USAA currently filing a claim :-[

I'm pretty sure the shed will need to be torn down after this hit..
I've had this shed since 1996 when I bought my house :'(







There's also damage to the chain link and privacy fence behind the shed as well :-[

Went from unseasonably cool to unseasonably hot for this time of year. 88 with high humidity right now, so feels like 92. Couple more days of this then back to more normal for this time of year high 60s to low 70s.

My shed is semi-patched and now a new disturbed weather area across the Bahamas and the peninsula of Florida and stretching into southeast Gulf of Mexico could develop a surface low off the GA/SC coast. Current tropical development chances are at 20% :scared:

Looks like Wednesday afternoon into the evening we'll be getting flooding rains from this tropical system that's currently moving off the Florida east coast..
Estimates are ranging from 3-5 inches total from this possible unnamed Tropical Depression as it moves ashore in SC and moves north through SC into NC.

Still waiting on 3 separate estimates: The Shed Damage, Fence Damage, and Branch Debris removal to submit for my Homeowners Insurance claim. So far, the temporary patchwork I put in place seems to be holding..
