Tuesday started out a bit cloudy with a few sprinkles at my location (Trace) then became partly cloudy and warmer as the day wore on, with no sign of any precipitation from dying storm Irma. Temperatures warmed a bit on Tuesday, reaching the mid 70s with lows in the upper 50s. Dew points were in the 50s rising into the low 60s later in the day. Now at 0630 we have cloudy skies with temperatures in the mid 60s with dew points in the lower 60s. The Tuesday minimum temperature from the VP2 in the shelter on the ground below my balcony (58.6°) was recorded at 0620 while the maximum temperature (75.3°) was recorded at 1500. Dew point temps rose from yesterday, ranging from 53° up to 61°. Relative humidity values were a bit higher than yesterday (91% – 49%). Barometric values continued to drop from yesterday’s much higher values, ranging from 30.13″ at 0000 down to 29.94″ at 1838.

We now have cloudy skies with temperatures in the mid 60s at 0630 Tuesday. The weakened remnant rains of Irma are hanging around in a very reduced intensity through Thursday, but bringing in more summer-like humid weather and accompanying showers. Wednesday and Thursday should have high temps in the upper 70s and lows in the lower 60s, with a 60 POP for rain on Wednesday and an 80 POP on Thursday.. On Friday temps should right to around 80° and lows in the low 60s with partly cloudy skies and only a 20 POP for rain. Saturday and Sunday look to be partly cloudy and warm with highs in the low 80s and lows in the low 60s and a 20 POP for rain.
On Weatherbug at 0630 the radar is showing light showers over much of the region, moving northward.

There was no rain reported once again in the USG gauge on Monday. The USG VP2 stayed offline all day and is not providing me most data sets (save for barometric pressure readings) for some reason.
