What is your weather doing these days
« on: August 31, 2020, 10:05:58 PM »
Just curious as our weather has sort of a change and feels more like fall. It Rained last nite...really a nice rain with some quiet thunder. I opened my window and checked and the air was cool and smell so good. It has gotten into the 50's the past few nights.

The sun is going down so much earlier it seems and by 8PM it is dusky and people should not walk in the road or they could get hit. Just seem like it went from really hot and humid summer to fall. We did not have any 90 degree days that I remember but the dew point was high and the corn has really grown.

WE can all hope that our crops make it to harvest and that it doesn't come too early. Poor  Iowa lost about  10 million acres of corn in the storm they has about 3 weeks ago. It seems like they haven't said that much about it but the pictures are terrible and so many people lost everything.  I heard one ad asking for volunteers to come and help do clean up. There is debris scattered for miles. Take care. meirish

Hi Irish,

Southeast of you, down in Central Illinois, the weather has been all over the place - from the 50's to the high 90's.  There were some really hot, humid days there within the last couple of weeks.

Today, I was woke up by the sound of thunder and rain.  The storm has moved on heading to the East, but I think we're suppose to get more tonight and some tomorrow too.  (It's been dry here, so we need the rain, but the weekends when people have time off from work/school, they like to be outside, and can't when it's storming.)

It's also breezy here today.  Current temperature 78 degrees (feels like 84).  In the mid 70's, low humidy is my favorite.   ;)

It's so sad to hear about all the damage in Iowa.  With everything else that is going on right now, they certainly didn't need that added on top of things.  I hope the people of Iowa and Louisiana get the help they need to recover from the wrath of Mother Nature and prosper once again.

Take care my friend to the Northwest.

Fall is early here in the Canadian prairies.  This weekend was absolutely freezing cold, windy, and rain/hail coming out of nowhere several times. Not far from us it snowed. Lots!  5 cm in total. It felt like fall was coming in early August to me. Just the way the crows and magpies were acting.  I don't usually see that kind of behaviour until late September so I've been bracing myself for a while now for the nasty cold.

We had very little heat this summer. Maybe only two weeks of needing the air conditioner, and many long days of rain. As Bucky noted, lots of severe changes in weather too. And the wind.  So much wind!

Here in the Pacific Northwest we have smoke from the fires east and south of us.  The wind was blowing from the east yesterday very strong so it brought us the smoke from Eastern Washington.  Seems like the west is on fire.

Here in southern mn we have had some really gorgeous days lately. It does cool off at night some and in 40's at times and everyone is holding their breath that it doesn't freeze yet as the crops need more time. I saw some bean that could use another 3 weeks at least with some nice low humidity and sunshine and breeze. I haven't heard how the corn is coming.

WE have had some rain off and on that has been welcomed. This year has been so crazy that we just are really thankful for every uneventful day we have. Take care. meirish

I had to run out of town to the dr again and it was such a beautiful fall day. Good temp and a breeze....and then it turned into afternoon and the wind came up. We seem to have had a lot of wind this year. Anyway, the crops looked so fellow and beautiful against the bluish sky. When I came home later the farmers were in the field combining the beans. There was some corn out but not much.

I stopped and took some pictures of wildflowers along a stream and things were so pretty. Someone I ran into today in a store was telling me that he heard that we were to get winds from the west and northwest this winter that bring in the extreme cold temperatures and also snow. I remember having those winds years ago when my kids were in high school. It was so wicked. One year the wind chill was around 80 below and really was hard on everyone. Hopefully we don't get it too bad cause with the civid it could be hard on a lot of families financially.

it was cloudy the night the harvest moon was out so I missed that. Maybe I will get to see the blue moon. Just remembered that It seems that there is the wasting disease in the deer in some of south central MN. Don't know if it is in our country but should be a problem for the hunters.

This seems to be the weather, crop and hunting report for central MN. Hope the rest of you are having good harvests so far and that the weather is holding out til Thanksgiving...don't we all hope. Take care. meirish

I'm all the way south -- near Corpus Christi, TX. 
We had a couple of mild cool fronts.  We have been out of the 100s for a few weeks, but still get a lot of 90s.
It's 89 out right now at 5:30 pm.  We've had several low humidity days and they felt wonderful!
We got the grain out early July and the cotton out early September. 
Wishing the best for you in the north that the crops make it.  It's devastating when you have a bad year in farming.

Marie, I did not realize that it was still so warm down south. In Minnesota today the farmers are picking the beans like crazy as they are so dry. I was out to the country to sons today and the wind was at least 40-50 miles per hour. I have lived in town the past 5 years and have not experienced that kind of wind. I was so surprised.

The wind was from the south so probably the weather is from the hurricane. Tonight it just started raining an hour ago and it will clean up all the dust in the air. I told my son that it would probably start raining pretty soon and it is getting close to corn harvest. I swear corn harvest brings the big rains and tractors get stuck and they have to dry their corn which cuts down on their profit.

It will be interesting to see what this winter brings. Take care in Texas and all the other places on this earth. meirish

Breezy greetings from Central IL!  It's been windy here for days.

They harvested our soybean field yesterday afternoon.  Today, I went and raked the yard where all the pieces landed that shoot out the back of the combine (blown in the wind).  I'm glad they are done with harvesting our field, now I can clean the outside windows from all the dirt and dust that was stirred up this summer/fall.

We could use some rain - just a little, to help settle down all the dryness of the fields.  The farmers here are almost done with their harvest - just a few corn fields left to harvest, which I'm sure they are tending to today.

I had read that Phoenix, AZ broke records this year with so many 100+ temperature days.  They had snow in Michigan today!

I haven't heard the Farmers Almanac predictions for us this year, but the squirrels in our yard have been very busy burying nuts all over the yard!  Once they start building their nests in the trees, I've always heard the higher they built their nest, the rougher our winter will be.  Hoping we'll have a mild winter here.

Well, we had a nice snow yesterday and it was beautiful. It came down steady with no wind but it had a lot of moisture in it. The trees were beautiful. The people at my coop all thought it was beautiful but would have been better at Christmas time. meirish
