Sunny and 72 for now. We're expecting some strong storms this afternoon. Now, I don't know about where everyone else lives, but there's something that's bugging me. This past Thursday, we had some storms before dawn, another round about 2 PM, and then some really strong storms at about 6 PM. The last round was apparently severe.

I say apparently severe because no human ever spotted a tornado. No human spotted a funnel cloud. However, our severe weather siren went off four times. Those sirens used to go off when severe weather was a reality; a tornado was on the ground.

Nowadays, we have two local television stations that basically use weather to one-up each other concerning their various Doppler and who-knows-what-else radar systems. They both want to be the first to report severe weather as they use the bragging rights in their next promotional commercials.

It seems our sirens no longer need human confirmation, or even the nearest National Weather Service station to declare severe weather; it's now up to a duo of our dueling weathermen. The situation is so pathetic that last year, upon getting out of my car on a nice sunny day, the sirens suddenly screamed because of a storm system in a county well to our east (our weather moves west to east, so this system was well past us - AND NOT EVEN IN OUR VICINITY!!!). I find myself listening to the sirens (which are sounding much more often than in times past) with an increasingly deaf ear.

Here in the greater Toronto area, it's about 18 deg C up to 22 today (64-72F), sunny. Finally sort of warming up.

Will be perfect to hang out this afternoon for the outdoor Brazilian Guitar Marathon in Toronto with the Duo Assad and many more ... we'll go for a nice dinner and finish the evening with the Roland Dyens concert. :D

We are having an unusually cool weather this spring and I heard this new word on the weather forecast .... Junuary ... sums it up really well.

Around here (Seattle) it's been low-to-mid seventies with partly sunny skies. This suits me just fine! Last week we had some hotter weather, and it's very hard to deal with here because we're not used to it, and our houses aren't designed for it.

Wow! I never knew there was even such a thing as a weather siren until last year when we were visiting relatives in Chicago. We were at the Arlington Racetrack when a siren went off and I had no idea what it was. It was loud and sounded dangerous indeed! What amazed me was that all of the people at the horse races pretty much ignored the siren and the black menacing clouds that were hanging opressively over the far side of the track and moving closer and closer. And that siren kept on siren-ing! "Shoudn't we... um... get into a bomb shelter or something?" I asked. "But we're watching the races! Nothing's going to happen." They assured me. And they were right. But boy, that siren sure had my heart racing!

I have been to Florida 3 times so far but never during the HUGE storm. But my relatives have to struggle with the weather living there.

As Evelyn said, it's been pretty nice here in Seattle. In fact, it's been something like twenty five days since any measurable rain. This is very unusual. However, usually when it goes even ten or so days without the air quality deteriorates noticeably. That hasn't been the case for some odd reason. Oh well, stay tuned. Fourth of July weekend often brings a monsoon...

It's been a bit cool and sometimes wet all week in my part of the UK, but today it's been glorious sunshine and 24 degrees :D

In southern California, about 40 miles North from Los Angeles, thick clouds in the morning and less clouds in the afternoon.
This weather is the same every day for last several weeks.

Out here in Western Massachusetts it was sunny and in the seventies all day. NICE. Basking Conditions. A very happy lizard am I! :mrgreen:
But now the clouds are rolling in. I was practicing out on the back deck, serenading the chipmunks (cute little guys) with Carulli's Andantino (en la mineur). A few drops fell on me and the mosquitoes started attacking my left hand. Guess it wasn't moving fast enough! I hate it when they bite you right on the knuckle. :x So now I am inside, reading delcamp!
When the sun shines, bask.

Tonight in my garden it varies from clear to partly rabbit, 65 degrees, winds calm, and 83% humidity. This has been one of coolest springs we have had for a long time. The temps will be getting closer to normal later in the week finally.
