A lid of dark gray rainclouds.
And the lid/ceiling is expected to stay on the sky hereabouts

It doesn't rain ALL the time.
It just hovers overhead and looks threatening.

Where it DOES rain there are flash-flood warnings posted.

Something unusual is reported on Cape Cod.
It wasn't the ocean surf doing a surge.
It was the rain coming down in inches per hour.
Regardless of the ocean,
streets had to be closed due to flooding,

We (North of Wash DC) have had a lot of rain the last month... but the really heavy, long-lasting ones have been on either side and below & above my specific location. A few days it has rained all day... but not heavily... and I have seen really strong rains that lasted only 10 minutes or so. Perhaps the Rain Gods remember that they flooded MY basement 4-5 times the last few years and THEY are giving me a break.

Now I've probably jinxed myself by commenting...

Massachusetts is not a monsoon zone.

But we have an occasional monsoon day, and if ever there was one,
this is it.
We've already had drenching rains for the better part of an hour

A big system of storms just came through here.
The good news is that its movement was rapid.
As it was, there has been flash flooding;
had the storms moved more slowly, the flooding would have been deeper.

No tornadoes where I actually live,
although a tornado touched down a county or two to the west.

Wonder if we can visualize the storms hurrying over to the UK?

Hi

i have a separate shower with it's own electric heater. I have had it for some years now.

Like Steve when I work in the garden or when it is especially hot I shower out side. We are fairly well private so it is no problem there.!!! At lest I thought we were until a neighbour came into the Pub and during the evening let on that they could see me from their house.

This didn't bother me - many years in the Air Force and more in the Rugby club I am used to not being concerned about my nudity.

Later in the evening I told him I was surprised they could see me. He said "well my wife found out that if they stand on the toilet seat in the bathroom we can just see you." This was a number of years ago. I don't do it now.

PS. we have just heard that United Utilities who supply our water have decided to remove the hose pipe ban that was due to me on from Sunday 5th August.

cheers Mike

Dry, very dry. Much of Oz is in its third year of very-below-average rainfall, some even longer. Long range forecasts are saying not much hope of rain before next February/March at least. Grass here is a thing of the past, farmers' stock is dying off, native animals - kangaroos etc. - are dropping where they stand.

Not much we can do about it, except cope as best we can......

Jeri called it correctly, on another thread,
regarding weather in the NE United States,
with the short-term rotation of
thunderstorms and downpours, bringing in cooler drier air
which is quickly replaced by hot muggy humidity,
and back to the storms.

Today is after-the-storm lower-humidity.
Feels better.
England is welcome to the rainy stuff.

I’d have to fill them up with a hosepipe as I’m running low and there doesn’t seem to be any rainwater forthcoming but here in North Norfolk, I can store about 2000L of water and sometimes ponder storing more (I could get at least 1000L container in behind the pigsties). I can (and do) do the veg plot, small greenhouses with that. The water is pumped via a marine fresh water pump/ solar panel setup and some micro irrigation bits. The grass round the back is all brown.

At the front, we’ve lost a few things in pots that weren’t on that micro-irrigation set up but is otherwise OK. The last hosepipe ban here banned this too but did allow soaker hose. I did get some of this for the back bed that dries up very quickly but never got round to changing things over.

I’m finding many days far to hot for me to do anything outside but have been enjoying evenings round the back (where Pip/mum, who loves the heat, and Furball join me) and try to get the odd job done. Washed all the stuff in the (not used at all last year) BBQ shed (an old pigsty) up last night, checked the stove and have a new kettle on order so evening cups of tea should be available soon.

I suppose these pleasant evenings are one good side to this. It would be nice to have a BBQ out there but we’ve not worked out how to get Peter/dad down there and don’t want to exclude him from a meal.

We had some lovely cloud formations here yesterday, mainly in cirrus clouds, including some virgae which were windblown horizontally for miles. They're actually snow showers of tiny ice crystals which sublime as they fall into drier air below. We also had a stunning whole-sky sunset of scattered altocumulus clouds with a very strange rainbow in the east exactly at sunset. No rain or anything. I've got a photo and I need to look up what was going on there.

Hi Sen

Here in leafy Cheshire we have been "advised" that the North West area will be prohibited from using the hose pipe from 5th August. I have two lawns that are rapidly burning up along with the plants and flowers.

We have been using up water that we have been washing up with etc but according to my garden water gauge we have had hardly any rainfall since 12th May. Luckily We have not done any pots or hanging baskets because we were away in Wales up until the middle of may.

My No 1 son has rigged up a siphon that my good lady can use to empty the bath water into an outside water butt. I prefer to shower and the siphon doesn't work on this.

This is the worse I can remember and has certainly gone on longer than I remember.

I do remember in 1976 we went up to South West Scotland and when we got there the rivers were dry and there were standpipes in the street.

But as we arrived it started to rain. All I had to do was to get my wife to sing....lol

Cheers

Mike

Have you had a hosepipe ban yet Steve? I reckon it won't be long before we all have.

We just use a small plastic bucket to put some water in our modest three tubs of flowers, and to refill the birdbaths and water trays for the wildlife. (We normally have a plethora of tubs and hanging baskets etc but for some reason didn't bother last Spring!)

There have been some very weird cloud formations over our Wensum Valley location. I was praying they would result in thunderstorms and deluges of rain.
No chance...
And they're saying it will reach 33 degrees Celsius next week and still not a hope of any rain. Oh Lord!

For all of July here on the north Cornwall coast we've had sunny days, mild nights and temperatures of between 22 and 26 Celsius. It's been much hotter inland, but our weather has been tempered every day by a lovely, gentle seabreeze off the Atlantic. We also had amazing weather in much of June, up to 30 Celsius once or twice. May wasn't half bad either. We've had more barbecues this last few weeks than in the last three summers put together! I'm all brown!

It was 32 degrees Celsius here today in Norfolk UK. It's been like this for many weeks. Not a drop of rain for literally months.

The countryside is slowly dying and turning to dust. They showed a farmer on TV who was harvesting grain with a combine, and he had some of last year's grain to compare. The grain he was getting was like tiny grains of sand, but last year's was plump. The yields are way, way down. Pasture is sere and non-viable for the stock.

I fear for the wildlife. The earth is like concrete and the birds can't get any grubs or worms. There is no water.

There's also the risk of wildfires in the fields, with dry straw lying waiting for the binders to gather it up.

Stupid brainless idiots have been letting off fireworks for various celebrations at the local pub. If fires broke out, we're all on oil-fired energy, and everyone has a tank with 1000 litres of kerosene. Bombs waiting to go off!
We've been putting out water for the birds and as much food as we can spare.
It all reminds me of when I was in Senegal in sub-Saharan Africa. Dry as dust and boiling hot.
It's really worrying and depressing. Please let it RAIN!!!

From an indoor spot with refrigerated air-conditioning,
looking out through a picture window (library),
the weather is pretty as a picture.
The clear blue sky and puffy white clouds
convey nothing to suggest the humidity / dew-points
contributing to the heat index figures.

tomorrow night it begins to cool down,

it will be cool and dry for sleeping again.
