the promised cold front with its harbingers of fall-like weather , seems to be around the corner,if we can get over these 5 to8" rainfalls in an evening.
The floodgates at the Susquehanna dams are open again and this is getting to be the latest norm. There are something like 24 flood gates at the Conowingo dam and for th last month or so, theyve had some batch of em opn thus muddying the waters in the upper Chesapeake just whn the shallow grasses have been taking off and crabs have begun to return en masse.

Fortunately the fresh/salt lines have been driven down the bay for almost 50 miles and the crabs dont come up this high any more, so the resident seafood population is still recovering but its down bay a bit.
If this present norm continues, our increased debauchery of the two major watersheds (the Delaware and the Susquehanna, will once again unite to form another shallow tidal distributary as big as 2 present day New Jerseys in which sharks like Carcharyodon megalodon spent their summers

The cheerful really annoying weather reporter, offered highlights of our recent rains.

For August, we are already a full 5 inches over the average (and several days to go yet), for the year something equally soaking.

And when it isn't raining the humidity is worse than n that July where I found myself located in Arkansas.

Please send rain. Weather has been magnificent, especially for winter. But no rain and none in sight. The whole state is in drought! Sad

@margo,
Sorry, if I see any, I'm going to take a picture of it and then go out and play in it.

Come and get it. Thunderstorms on the menu again for tomorrow.

@ehBeth,
Oh, we get the occasional thunderstorm, too. Dark clouds, thunder and lightning, high winds - the whole deal, almost. Sometimes there is even enough rainfall to leave little mud spots on the windshields.

I wish we had a few of those rain storms out here in Silicon Valley.

@roger,
They're calling for another 20 - 30 mm of rain tomorrow. Great. We can carry water from the dehumidifier out to dump in the puddles.

@ehBeth,
The European launch company Arianespace successfully launched a new weather satellite on August 22.
Named Aeolus, the spacecraft is the first satellite designed to measure Earth's winds on a global scale.
Aeolus will spend the next three years mapping winds around the globe.

Quote:
The lack of direct global wind measurements is one of the major deficits in the Global Observing System.
By filling this gap, Aeolus will give scientists the information they need to understand how wind, pressure, temperature and humidity are interlinked.
This new mission will provide insight into how the wind influences the exchange of heat and moisture between Earth’s surface and the atmosphere – important aspects for understanding climate change.

Aeolus carries one of the most sophisticated instruments ever to be put into orbit. The first of its kind, the Aladin instrument includes revolutionary laser technology to generate pulses of ultraviolet light that are beamed down into the atmosphere to profile the world’s winds – a completely new approach to measuring the wind from space.

While Aeolus is set to advance science, it will also benefit society.

Although weather forecasts have advanced considerably in recent years, Aeolus will provide global wind profiles to improve the accuracy even further. In addition, its data will be used in air-quality models to improve forecasts of dust and other airborne particles that affect public health.

This is the temperature in Bayreuth (Bavaria) of the last couple of days/today/coming weekend (in Centigrade):

Why I mention it? Today, they opened the Christmas Market ("Bayreuther Winterdorf") there

https://i.imgur.com/tIoFbxm.jpg

For today's opening, every guest will receive a scoop of mulled wine ice cream, wheat beer ice cream or normal ice cream with his mulled wine (they've got 16 variations of Glühwein [mulled wine]).

Getting much cooler in Silicon Valley. It's 58 now and will hit 82 this afternoon.
