    And, barely 12 hours later, the latest 'Storm Watch' is over. Apparently, the latest models pretty much all show the storm staying further out to sea and not bothering anyone (except, possibly, Bermuda!). They got us all riled up with their early predictions of storm-force conditions along the coast (and inland), only to find it's not going anywhere near. Weather forecasters, hey...?!

    Our forecast for the next 5 days:

    Friday (today): "50% chance of storms"
    Reality - nada
    Saturday: "70% chance of storms"
    Sunday: "50% chance of storms"
    Monday: "40% chance of storms"
    Tuesday: Partly sunny

    I wonder how much this will change now this latest tropical storm is staying well out to sea...

    Well, the weather is definitely showing signs of settling back down into more of a 'summer normal' mode as we start a new week. The past few days have been very changeable, and the weather has been extremely mixed (if not staying the same for very long!). Here's how those last few days have shaped up, according to the forecast:

    Friday: "50% chance of storms"
    Reality - nada
    Saturday: "70% chance of storms"
    Reality - a couple of (very brief) squally showers
    Sunday: "50% chance of storms"
    Reality - a few more squally showers, one fairly heavy downpour (for 15 minutes) and 2 rumbles of thunder!
    Monday (today): "40% chance of storms"
    Reality - a very cloudy start to the day, but rapidly brightening up
    Tuesday: Partly sunny

    It's also worth pointing out that the past 4 days have been much more like the usual monthly average for temperature after that burst of heat into the 94-95F/35C region (with the Heat Index over 100/37.7). We are pretty much right on the money right now at 90/32, with the September average usually dropping to 86/30 by the end of the month. It's still pretty humid, though (around 80%), so that makes it feel distinctly warmer.

    To date, we've had just under 3ins of rain for the month, with a usual monthly average of 6.1ins, so we're a bit below average in that respect so far.
