It has been such a wet year for me.....with the exception of one bone dry month in March (0.74"), almost every month has been about twice the average rainfall.
Today I at least want some of that cloud cover to make it to me so I can do some yard work this evening
I was hoping the same today. Was expecting some good cirrus so I could weed the weeds in the sun. Only a light cirrus so sun still winning. Outflow from this morning storms over central La has pushed the cu field down south of BR. Oh well at least it is not raining.
Wife was on our screen porch when it hit. Swirling winds. She felt a slight pressure drop and the door to come in was a little difficult to open. At the same time, a hook echo was showing up on the radar.

I had the beginnings of a wall cloud last week with one of those storms. Some of them have been in the form of a N / S oriented sausage look. The tails had a little comma on a few....but just a little.

I really can’t explain this but I know it is happening. 1) we are attached to Gulf flow this summer. There have and will be the sweeping death ridges, but not like many summers we’ve seen lately. 2) the unbelievable combo of extreme temps, humidity, and dew point a few weeks back was something I thought I would never see here. 3) these storms have really had a punch all summer so far. 4) I have seen clouds and formations that are not familiar. I think our atmosphere is charged this summer. Something is just different to me. And so yes, what does this mean, if anything for the peak of cane season?
