Fall like weather is in place. Right now it's jeans and sweatshirt weather.

So, for all of the rain predictions and perceptions out there, June rainfall was actually below average.

While it officially may be below average, I use two measurements...my pool and my lawn. First, I have cut my grass at least once a week all year. Normally by now, I have had to skip a week or two due to dry conditions. Second, I have let water out of my pool 4-6x this year and have not had to add water all season, including when I opened it. Those two things tell me we have had plenty of rain.

Much of the rain that falls is higher intensity, but very localized, and tends to develop and train over the same area, sometimes for days, like has happened in the Adirondacks. Just the other night, Sunday night maybe, most stations were showing anywhere from a tenth to a half of an inch, but a couple of stations in and west of Island Beach were in the 2-3 inch range.

In my travels around Sussex and Morris, I've seen no evidence of anything unusual as far as the rainfall amounts. May was high, but since then, things have corrected. Also true is the generally higher level of cloud cover and cooler temps, which reduces the amount of evaporation. Which could be why you've had to drain your pool and mow more often. Then again, maybe you've been in the jackpot for rain more often too, which compounds your work.

Weird day here with that backdoor front making it through. It’s misty and in the 70s. Only in the 80s for the next 5 or 6 days. Great for July.

NWS has the area under slight risk for some strong/severe thunderstorms this afternoon. It's been cloudy here and expected to be overcast throughout the day. So we'll see what storms flare up.

This is ridiculous. Where's July? I was up at HP on Tuesday. 2 PM, and it was 58 degrees at the park office. Still overcast and raw this morning here in Rockaway, although thankfully it's not 58.

Don't mind the cooler temps at all. Last week's heat was gross.

This week's forecasts have been beyond bad. Each day predicted the next day would be great and lets not mention that on Wed the forecast for the weekend was for sun and mid 80's. Its just become the norm for them anymore.

And where they should be beyond embarrassed, it doesn't even seem to phase them. Little explanation as to why they were wrong or even admitting they were wrong. I just laugh when people tell me "that's what the weatherman said". I trust the people in here more than the trained professionals.

Nice day today, a little warmer than I expected. I can see some cumulonimbus clouds around and tiny blips on radar, but nothing otherwise.
