    How's the weather at your place? - September 2016

    Welcome to the September 2016 edition of the weather thread.

    Will the heat continue? - that is the question for a lot of us. July was noted as the hottest month the earth has ever been according to NOAA. I have a feeling that August might equal or surpass that. Long range forecasts show September to be above average also.

    Rain - our friends in LA have gotten hammered. What is remarkable is that while we are at the height of hurricane season, the flooding rains that they experienced where not from a tropical system. Other reports from our members in other areas of the country have shown reports of excessive rainfall also.

    The full moon in September is on the 16th and is called the Harvest Moon. The following is a copy/paste but found it interesting -

    This full moon’s name is attributed to Native Americans because it marked when corn was supposed to be harvested. Most often, the September full moon is actually the Harvest Moon, which is the full Moon that occurs closest to the autumn equinox. In two years out of three, the Harvest Moon comes in September, but in some years it occurs in October. At the peak of harvest, farmers can work late into the night by the light of this Moon. Usually the full Moon rises an average of 50 minutes later each night, but for the few nights around the Harvest Moon, the Moon seems to rise at nearly the same time each night: just 25 to 30 minutes later across the U.S., and only 10 to 20 minutes later for much of Canada and Europe. Corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and wild rice the chief Indian staples are now ready for gathering.

    Closing the books on August 2016, 15.18" of rain for the month at my house.
    I'm guessing the temps were a few degrees below the normal average for August because of the cloud cover and rain.
    Lowest temp. recorded this month was 71*, which is kind of unusual for August down here.

    I'll add my rain stats also -

    August total - 4.68"
    Ave for August - 3.92"

    Year to date - 20.94"
    Ave year to date - 24.52"

    So we are still behind for the year to date by 3.58". We had very little rain in July which is pulling the YTD average down.

    -------------------------------------

    Cold front pushed through yesterday but the humid stale air is lingering here in the bowl. Low overnight was 64° and holding and still very humid (100%). Forecast shows sunny skies with a high in the lower 70's but will take a while for the new air to push the old air out. That's part of living in a hollow in the mountains.

    Currently 52 with a high of 76. 20% chance of rain later, extremely heavy fog right now. That looks like a continuing trend for the next few days, I certainly hope it does.

    "Spectacular" is the word that came to mind when I went out on the porch this morning. Low is 54° with nice crisp air. Calling for highs of 78° the next couple days with lows continuing in the low 50's.
