We've had a couple three days with no rain. And today looked like it was going to be the same. Then out of the blue a thunderstorm dumped on us for an hour or so. I looked at the radar and it was just over us. My little town is 7 road miles away and has 2 weather underground sites. It didn't rain at either of them.

And we did get down into the 60's night before last. I slept late and missed it. But there is a cold front coming in Friday morning. I will be looking forward to it. The first two weeks of September is always really hot.

At 2040 it's clear, 77F with 88% humidity. Forecast low of 71F with 15% chance of rain tonight, and 60% tomorrow.

We were back into the 60's this morning. Low of 65F, and I got outside in time to enjoy some of it. Tonight is a camp night, so I will get to experience all of it.

At 1600 it's sunny, 86F with 38% humidity. Tonight's low is forecast for 65F with 10% chance of rain, and tomorrow's high is 88F. Pretty much a copy of today.

The center of the latest tropical depression may be 50 miles from Lake Charles, but the outer bands of rain have reached me here on the sandhill. At 1320 it's raining, 74F with 90% humidity. Forecast high low of 80/71F with 100% chance of rain today, 80% tonight and tomorrow. 10 day high low of 85/67F with 8 days of possible rain. So much for drying out. (last night was the first time I had used the driveway at the riverhouse for 3-4 weeks. The river hasn't had a big flood, but it's stayed high enough just to make me wade.

Happy first day of fall. But I think the world must be broken. My length of day is 12 hours 8 minutes. Oh well.

Cold front is moving in tonight. Temps will be in the 50's in the AM. It's clear, 74F with 70% humidity. Looks like we have 7-8 days with no rain.

We have all that except the colors. Well, it did get in the low 80's but there was such low humidity it wasn't bad.

Been perfect weather for the farmers harvesting the corn this year in Central Illinois. Mid 80Fs and low humidity for the past month. A little wet in June so the beans were planted late. But the harvest will be a bin buster. Almost perfect conditions all year long, It's been dry and some rain this weekend. +210 bu an acer on corn I bet.

The farm to the south of me has been picking peanuts all week. They got lucky with the weather. No rain the last week or so.

At 1530 it's sunny, 82F with 55% humidity. Forecast low of 63F with 7% chance of rain tonight. No real chance of rain in the ten day forecast. Would have loved to have had some of this sun before I'm down to three or four little knee high late season plants.

84F at 5:25pm in central Illinois first day without measurable rain in the last ten Tomorrow looks like more rain. We already have our average for the month but fall can bring some deluges. Good for me because I have been planting grass seed. Bad for farmers though.
