A mostly cloudy, slightly cooler weather update for West Rockville Maryland for Monday September 18 2017

Monday was mostly cloudy and a bit cooler than Sunday. Temperatures rose to the mid 70s with lows in the mid 60s. Dew points didn’t change much all day, staying in the mid-upper 60s all day. Now at 0710 we have cloudy skies with temperatures in the mid 60s with dew points also in the mid 60s. A bit of NE winds early this morning inhibiting the formation of fog early today. The Monday minimum temperature from the VP2 in the shelter on the ground below my balcony (66.9°) was recorded at 0221 while the maximum temperature (76.1°) was recorded at 1534. Dew point temps flattened out more than yesterday, only ranging from 65° to 69°. Relative humidity values were a bit higher than yesterday (96% – 74%). Barometric values were a bit lower than yesterday, ranging from 30.02″ at 1853 up to 30.10″ at 0000.

Remember now you can get the ground-based VP2 data on Weatherlink. You can access the data through http://www.weatherlink.com/user/walrusman444

We now have partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the mid 60s at 0710 Tuesday. On Tuesday sunny with scattered clouds at times with highs in the lower 80s and lows in the low 60s with no chance of rain as Hurricane Jose is tracking further out to sea and minimizing its effects in our immediate area but appears to be hovering out there more or less in place, looping around itself. Sunny skies should dominate our weather on Wednesday and Thursday, with warm and humid conditions, and highs in the mid 80s and lows in the lower mid 60s. On Friday a few scattered clouds may dot the mostly sunny skies with highs in the mid 80s and lows in the low 60s.

On Weatherbug at 0710 the radar is showing scattered showers offshore and onshore on the mid-Atlantic beaches of NE NC, parts of SE VA, MD, DE and into NJ at this time from hurricane Jose with some brisk NE winds at this time.

As of 0710 EDT, the data from the VP2 (coming from the ground radiation shield about 4 feet off the ground just under and out from the balcony), the Lakewood WXBug station and the USG VP2 station across the street are as follows :

Station Relative Location Temp RH DP BP Wind High/Low temp today
VP2 Ground 66.1 94 64 30.00S NA 76.1/66.9

There was no rain in the gauge on Monday (cocorahs gauge – now located off the apartment property across the street from my initial two locations just off the inactive putting green – near the Montessori School playground. No sprinklers there at all on this county property).

August precipitation was 4.39″ (believe this is in error – I am finalizing my research on these numbers by tomorrow)

September precipitation through midnight obs tonight was 2.56″.

Year-to-date (YTD) precipitation total is 33.86″

VP2 Across the street (USG) NA NA NA 30.04S NA NA/NA

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).
