Good: Break in the heat. Bad: Rainy outlook next week.

bbq_alertIf temperatures dip to 57° tonight, it’ll be the coolest night since July 2nd! Clear skies, dry air, and high pressure are just a few things to thank for the cool weather tonight and Friday.

It’ll also be gorgeous for Friday and you know what that means: BARBEQUE ALERT! However, before we go out and celebrate let’s take hold of a more threatening forecast for next week. It appears our luck will run out very quickly.

I am becoming more concerned about severe weather and flooding rains that may occur repeatedly Sunday through next Thursday. ring-of-fireThis pattern is one that could bring some weekly totals in excess of 6 inches! Something no one wants to hear for sure, especially for areas that are in the midst of a huge clean up from weeks of rain. We’ll be on the edge of a dome of  high pressure setting up a near-perfect scenario for additional flooding rains and damaging thunderstorms here with triple digit heat not too far to the southwest. Going to be an interesting week to be sure…stay tuned! -ES

p.s. Another odd post from yours truly that deserves three tags at once: BBQ Alert, flooding, and severe weather.

    The dry weather is a relief but the BBQ is going to have to wait until I can get the grass mowed. It is nearly knee high in some places(and I mowed it last weekend, honest)!!

    The backyard is a moth and ‘skeeter haven. (The MOTHS have been unbelievable – an explosion of them … anyone else noticing this?)

    I have definitely noticed the moths. Everytime you walk through the grass, the moths come flying out.

    My dog’s been loving chasing all the moths, but I’m not pleased with what they’ll mean for the lawn next year. Lots of little buggies feeding underground…

    So … what kind of moths are these? Species? Life cycle? What they eat? What they destroy? Do they or their larvae do any good?

    Any entomologists in the house?
