It's blue skies and clear now, pretty hot as well.   Rain would be nice right now.

It hasn't rained as much as they said it would this week.

Why do you want rain? The only reason I, as a city-dweller but in a residential area, want rain is so I can skip watering my flowers and vegetable gardens. Otherwise it's more of a pain than anything. I missed my usual dog-walking and patio-relaxing tonight because it was chilly and cloudy and showered on and off.

People in Minnesota often wish for rain "for the farmers," and I suppose in NJ it's the same?

Hi Katherine,

When it's hot and steamy/humid here, it gets more tolerable after a rain.   The temps will drop, and the humidity will decrease, sometimes by a great deal.

I remember one time it was about 95 degrees, and after a hard downpour, it had dropped to almost 80.

We have clear skies and I have been watching the lunar eclipse, now 7am and about half covered. At the moment I can see it out of my front door but sadly it is dropping towards the roof of the house next door. I may have to go up to the front gate to see it turn to blood. They say about 8.15am. It is 6'C so am not standing outside. Could be worse, it was about 2'C at this time a few days ago.

Thanks for the report! I don't think anyone in North America can see this one!

Full moon came and went, and my new granddaughter still isn't here. She's worth waiting for.
When you see the smiley face in the sky, the pandemic will be over!

At 7.30am I was just able to see the moon above the trees as it turned orange, would not call it red.

Not to be all know-it-ally (or more so than usual, anyway  :laugh:) and I could be wrong. But I think it's the temperature change that brings the rain as opposed to the other way around, right?

Isn't it, like, two different fronts with different temperatures and humidity levels bumping into each other that produces rain? That's what I've always thought, anyway. The same thing happens with snow. A snowstorm might arrive on a relatively warm day, but the next day it's usually really cold.

But I'm no expert. I'm not even entirely sure what a "front" is, other than a big mass of a certain kind of weather, or why clashing fronts would produce weather unrest.

All I can say, is that immediately after a rain on a hot day here, it feels much cooler.

No full moon last night for me, it was pouring.

It was clear here. I sat in my backyard and watched the moon rise over the trees. Beautiful and kind of orange-ish.

I would've tried to take a pic, but knowing me, it wouldn't have turned out.  LOL
