Monday was mostly sunny, warm and dry yet again. Temperatures rose into the mid 80s with
lows in the mid 60s. Dew points rose above the 70° mark. Now at 0801 we have clear skies with
scattered high clouds and temperatures in the upper 60s and the dew points in the mid 60s. The
Monday minimum temperature from the VP2 in the shelter on the ground below my balcony
(67.0°) was recorded at 0417 while the maximum temperature (85.9°) was recorded at 1546.
Dew point temps ranged from 65° up to 73°. Relative humidity values were a bit higher than
yesterday (94% – 54%). Barometric values were a bit lower than yesterday, ranging from
30.06″ at 0931 down to 29.98″ at 1641.
Remember now you can get the ground-based VP2 data on Weatherlink. You can access the

I finally set up my new station on Weather Underground (KMDROCKV200), though it is not transmitting from my new location yet.
We now have clear skies with a few scattered high cirrus clouds with temperatures in the mid-
upper 60s at 0801 Tuesday. Sunny to partly cloudy skies will dominate our weather Tuesday and
Wednesday with very warm and dry conditions continuing. High temps should be in the mid 80s
with lows in the mid 60s. Thursday and Friday should turn cooler, with highs in the low-mid 70s
and lows in the much more comfortable low 50s. Cooler air will continue to work its way into the
weekend as we transition from September into October with rain hopefully starting to fall again
at the beginning of next week.
On Weatherbug at 0801 the radar is showing the outermost bands of showers associated with
Hurricane Maria off of the North Carolina coast, and some well off the coast of Massachusetts
associated with the dying remains of tropical storm Jose. Otherwise the Eastern US is clear at
